    Whats your opinion on creating a site that covers a topic on a broad scale vs a more specific one. (niche vs micro niche)

    For example: Creating a site about android smart phones vs a site that covers all smart phones or even smart phones + tablets...


    • In my example above you could go more broad or more narrow, should you? Which direction (more broad or narrow)?
    • What are your arguments for or against niche vs micro niche... why?

    Keep in mind:
    • By micro niche I do not mean a site that is small, only specific.


    My question is in regards to how broad or specific a site should be on a given topic and the advantages / disadvantages it will provide.

    I think it's up to you really, you can do either. One is obviously a lot more work than the other, and will go on to be an authority site.

    Depending on the niche, you're looking at a lot of topics to cover in terms of content if you go broad. I would go broad if I was trying to build more of a "brand" targeting mobile tech in general, and micro-niche if I was an Android programmer and that was my area of expertise.


    It also depends on your competition. If there are already a lot of authority sites covering mobile devices in general, but no one in particular targeting Android, then the choice would be obvious, provided that you have a large enough target audience if you go exact.

    Well I'm mostly curious because I've been going back an forth on whether or not it would be a good idea to make for example.. a site on smart phones, a site on tablets, a site on beepers.. etc or just make one site that covers all of those items.

    I was curious of the advantages / disadvantages because I keep wondering if a particular style (niche vs micro ) would be better suited for better rankings and protection from google updates.. etc
