What you will read here?
1. Keyword Research
As you might have known by now, the very first step in building a niche site is to decide on the topic you want to build a blog on and then dive in to analyze different key phrases that you will want your blog to rank for.
This is a very important phase that must be carefully implemented if you really want to get your blog ranked and make money from it because, this step will guarantee the success or failure of the site you’re building. Here, you need to pick keywords that you are sure you will be able to rank considering your available resources.
So for example let’s say you like cooking and want to build a blog that focuses on Best cooker sets, then your niche will be “Home Improvement & Kitchen” while the keyword you will be working smart on to get your blog ranked for will be “best cooker sets”.
2. Preparing Contents for Niche Blog
Now that you are armed with a niche and a keyword for your new blog, it’s time to start writing contents (articles) for your new blog. Usually, I like to start a new blog with a minimum of 10 prewritten articles. You will need to write 4 secondary articles of 1000 words minimum and 1 primary article of 1500 words minimum.
The 4 secondary articles should be written and optimized for other secondary keywords (e.g. best stainless steel cookware, cast iron cooker advantages etc.) you have researched while the primary article should only be optimized for your primary keyword (best cooker sets). Be sure to include the keyword in the title of the article, introduction paragraph and in the ending paragraph within the article.
3. Choose a Domain and Hosting
Once you have your article ready, it’s time to purchase a domain and hosting account for your blog. There are many options where you can buy your domain and hosting including GoDaddy for domain and Bluehost for hosting.
When buying domain for your blog, avoid going for the EMDs (exact match domains) i.e, with our “best cooker sets” keyword, buying a www.bestcookers.com domain is what is referred to as EMD and it’s something you should not indulge in. instead choose branded domains like cookingblog.com. This is because Google now flown at EMD domains and going for such can easily get you penalized.
