    Hello everyone.I own a car news website that is having about 700 visitors a day after about 6+ copyscape passed articles a day. Google news brings almost all visits and 90% of visitors comes to newest articles. Whether I should focus only on cars or not, I am currently considering. I am thinking if I should turn it into a general news website (covering everything like politics, entertainment, etc.) or I should just start cocering other technology subjects (like phone, machines, etc.).

    Wouldn't you be best doubling down and selling car products through Amazon ebay?

    Honestly it sounds like a mammoth task to change something like a car news site which is getting decent targeted traffic for a niche into a general purpose site. You should look into targeted ads for Amazon or eBay and send off an affiliate approval for the one you choose in the meantime. In my opinion you could make more selling targeted products to your targeted audience than you could attempting to expand your audience and offering general ads to them, but I'd be happy to be corrected if I'm wrong. If it's still an avenue you want to explore considering repeating the process with multiple sites from scratch and eventually linking them together as a network.
