How to make money online with Niche websites

Similarly other few example of niches are how to gain weight, how to learn guitar, WordPress expert tips etc. Basically a blog that speaks or publishes information only about the narrow field of expertise that the blogger chooses to be in.

Advantages of a Niche Blog

The first and most important advantage is that, every visitor to your blog knows exactly what you are writing about and they have a possibility of finding or learning about exactly the set of information that they are interested.

The reason is that the blogger or website owner and the visitor share the same niche interest. This situation makes it easier to monetize from your website. Read further I will explain.

  6. Hi Josh,
    Which would be more profitable? A website or setting up a blog at I heard it's best to
    create a website, that way you'll get
    better SEO recognition from Google.
    My main blog at typepad has adsense but it's slow-going, so I started 2 more blogs (free) and they haven't even received a comment yet.
    Thanks for the great tips.

    • Dear James,

      In my opinion, its high time we write co-branded blogspots and typepads that are hosted on their website and dont have a independent domain and self hosting.
      There are loads of factors that limit you when you have a cobranded blog. your own domain name and hosting will not cost you 3 – 4 dollars per month for a very high quality hosting package and it gives you good credibility as a professional website / blog. My recommendation for you to identify one niche and topic as your primary blog, setup a wordpress selfhosted blog on that one and work in an organized manner for atleast 5 months on that blog, building content and publicizing.

      After that, am sure you will start receiving traffic and your ads will start to bloom money. The idea is to get quality content -> traffic -> money. The idea of 100 websites earning 1 dollar a day never works as its not easy to build quality content on 100 topics daily as there are niche leaders in all categories. Concentrate on one blog that earns 50 dollars a day like in 6 months time and later you can add one more new blog. Thats what is working for me well now.

      and say no to autoblogs as its simply a method to get banned by google panda update (latest algorithm update), so concentrate on delivering value through great unique content. Let me know if you have any questions.
