Focused Niches Make Monumental Differences
I made many sites over the course of my life. The first when I was only in the third grade. It was the late 90's and a simple landing page that has text and a background image (I think it moved too). It amazed my class that I owned a website on the 'world wide web'. I was hooked.
Since then I have had many sites with various niches. None of which I enthused me to write on the subject. My main website was just a dumping ground for anything I wanted to write on. As you can guess this was a poor move. But somehow, maybe the sheer time it was up, it gained domain authority.
Recently I made the move to change it to a niche site on what I love and have a lot of knowledge about. Yup, blogging. This over crowded niche was why I never revamped my main site or started a blog in the niche. I thought it was to competitive, and I was right.
But none of that matters! It's the right niche for my knowledge and passion. It has not even been a full month yet since I mass deleted posts I considered off topic (I'm talking hundreds). Over the past twenty some days I've been writing new posts on topic and going through old ones. These old ones are being updated and extended to contain more information.
I posted a quick updated here at WA when I saw Google Search Console telling me I was getting ranked sixth for the key-phrase "how to start a blog". It floored me! I could not have picked a more competitive niche and I am ranking in less than a month. (Though I could not repeat the results, Google still said so! You can read about that here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/jrswab/blog/ranking )
This goes to show everyone that staying focused on your niche, making sure you are passionate, and know what you are talking about, will lead to great things. I can't imagine what my site will achieve six months from my huge site revamp.
Glad to be back and able to share this with you all. You are my internet marketing family and I wouldn't want it any other way! To all of our success!
