The Quest Begins…

In: The Quest| Websites

1 Jan 2012

I didn’t want to start January off with no websites to talk about, so I’ve been working on a few websites that I’ll go over in the next few posts, and they are going live today as well. After this, I’ll talk about the websites as I’m creating them.

The first type of website I wanted to put up is a niche website. I had a few ideas of some niches that are popular, and I thought I could easily write about. I’ll call these websites NicheWebsite1 and NicheWebsite2 from now on.

I’d love to be able to give you the niches and domain names, but as I’ve seen over and over again, when you do, other websites with either almost the same content – or exactly the same content will show up soon after. So for now, while I’ll give details of what I’m doing and how I’m doing it, I won’t be able to get too specific on the name or niche. Hopefully sometime in the future I’ll be able to share some of them though.

So, going back to the two niche websites, I picked the domains based on keywords I had researched on SEO Book and how many exact results there are in Google. Unfortunately, I didn’t have Market Samurai until a few weeks ago, so I wasn’t able to use that as a tool.

I’m going to promote affiliate products on these pages, on the sidebar as well as within each post. On one of the websites I should make between $8 – $15 or so a sale, and on the other more likely between $50 – $100 per sale.

I’m using WordPress blogs, and will drip the content out every few days. So far I only have a few posts for each, so I’m not sure exactly how many I’ll do before I stop, but I know I have enough to write about to create 20+ posts for each.

I’d say that it took me a few hours each to put the websites up. I purchased the domains, installed WordPress, and found a free theme I liked for each. I then also installed a few free plugins. I like All in One SEO Pack and Google XML Sitemaps.

Then it’s all about the posts. I’d say I’m averaging about 45 min per post for these websites, since I’m doing a bit of research for each.

That’s all I’ve done so far for these sites. Over the next few weeks I’ll continue posting to them, and will keep you updated on them.

If you have any questions so far, please feel free to ask, and I’ll answer the best that I can.

In the next post I’ll talk about a few other sites that will be going live today or tomorrow.
