      How To Build A Profitable Niche Site Within 27 Minutes
      Copyright 2005 John Taylor

      Building niche a portfolio of profitable niche sites is a
      great way of developing a recurring income stream. A
      typical niche mini site may only earn you $60 per week but
      at that rate, four such sites will generate a yearly income
      of over $12,000. I'll let you figure out the earnings
      potential of 100 mini sites!

      The niche mini site strategy is very straightforward.
      First, find a niche market with profit potential that isn't
      already oversaturated with competitors. Identify a list of
      related keywords that people are searching on and then
      create keyword rich content pages that is optimised for
      each one of your keywords.

      Traditionally, once you have your content pages, you would
      normally upload them to your site and monetize them with
      affiliate links and pay par click programmes such as
      Google's Adsense. However, why not make it easy on yourself
      and gain an added search engine advantage...

      We now have access to an easy to use and versatile content
      management system that means that building a niche mini
      site can be done on the fly. Yes, that's right - The Blog!

      At its very simplest, a blog is just a structure for
      managing web content. It's the backbone, or skeleton, of a
      web site on which to hang the flesh. A blog is simply an
      easy way to enter and publish your content online.

      Blogs don't just have to be journals, rants, personal
      commentaries or diaries; blogs can take on a wide variety
      of forms and functions.

      In fact you can just about build any kind of web site with
      a blog. Just think about it - a blog can be used very
      effectively to build a niche site. In fact, because they
      are so easy to use, blogs are one of the most effective
      niche mini site building tools.

      More importantly, one of the most important reasons for
      choosing to use a blog is their attractiveness to the
      search engines and the effect that can have on attracting
      targeted traffic. According to a study released earlier
      this month by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, a
      full 27 percent of all online users now read blogs, a 58
      percent increase from the early part of 2004.

      So, how can you take advantage of blogging technology to
      build a successful niche mini site?

      First, choose your niche, identify your primary keyword
      phrase and pick out about ten secondary keywords - the
      remaining keywords that you discover will be used later in
      the process.

      The next step is to compile some relevant content based on
      your primary keyword phrase, just as you would when
      building a regular site. Then set up an account at
      http://www.Blog4Cash.com and publish your primary keyword
      content to your main category. Your niche mini site is
      already up and running.

      Now create a new blog category for each of your 10
      secondary keywords using each keyword as the name of a
      category. The next step is to compile content for each of
      the ten keywords and post that content in the appropriate
      category. You can then compile content for each of the
      remaining keywords and post that content in one of your ten

      The more keywords you find the more content you can add to
      your blog. I try to aim for at least ten keywords /pages
      per category. Eventually you could have hundreds of pages.
      Each of those pages will have a link to your 10 Categories.
      And each of those links will use the anchor text of your
      most important keywords. As a result of all those internal
      keyword-rich links, your site will end up ranking very well
      in the search engines for your Category names.

      Your next step is to set up your traffic system. This is
      where using a blog to build sites gives you a real
      advantage. There are many special RSS/blog directories that
      are hungry for feeds. By submitting your new niche blog to
      these directories, you will begin getting traffic almost
      immediately. Quite often these feeds will result in a lot
      more traffic than all the major search engines combined.
      This is why it makes so much sense to build your niche site
      as a blog. You will enjoy much more traffic, and get it
      much faster than with a traditional HTML based site.

      Here is a list of some of the top specialist directories
      you should submit your niche site to:

      As soon as you've submitted your site to the directories,
      it's time to get it indexed by Yahoo! by adding your RSS
      feed to your MyYahoo! page. If you don't have a MyYahoo!
      page, just go to http://www.yahoo.com. Now click on the
      MyYahoo! link at the top and set up your free account. Once
      you have your account set up, click on Add Content, then
      add the URL of your blog RSS feed into the Find Content box.

      When you return to your MyYahoo! page, your first niche
      blog post should be shown. If you go look at your web stats
      for your site, you'll find that the Yahoo! spider has
      probably already made a visit. Your new site should be
      indexed in Yahoo! in just a couple of days.

      Every time you add another content page to your blog, you
      can alert the RSS/blog directories by "pinging" them. There
      is a wonderful site at http://www.pingomatic.com that makes
      this very easy. You just have to enter the URL of your blog
      and Pingomatic will send your ping to Yahoo and about 15
      other large directories. That will bring the spiders back
      to your site almost immediately!

      I would recommend that you write and add a new keyword rich
      content page every day until you have between 40 to 60
      pages. Blogs that are frequently updated tend to get the
      most traffic. After a couple of months, you'll have a 60
      page niche site that will already be getting a lot of
      traffic. You will also discover that your regular updates
      will stimulate the major search engines to spider your site
      every day. And, if you've monetized your site with Google
      Adsense and relevant affiliate programs, you will also be
      making a healthy profit!

      Once you learned how easy and profitable it is to build
      your niche sites with a blog, you'll soon be building more
      and more money making niche sites!
