How do you know when it is time to give up and start over?
I have been actively (but slowly) building my site for about 5 months now. I am feeling rather despondent about the progress my site is making and I think I may have made some fundamental errors when I chose my niche.
Content: 25 pages / posts (I know this is not great quantity)
For a beginner I think I have chosen a niche that is either difficult, or too broad. Too few searches vs too much competition.
I don't think I am even close to getting good rankings on Google.
I need to decide on a way forward.
To keep going with this niche or to find something else that is more specific and not so broad?
To find a sub-niche and focus on that for a while and build out other topics later?
To focus on my bootcamp site and come back to this at some time in the future? This bootcamp site is still very small and getting little attention because it is not my priority at the moment.
How do I decide which is the best course of action?
I know that Kyle says that ANY niche can be profitable. My problem is that this niche does not have a specific product to target - there are numerous different products for various areas of the topic. When I re-look at the niche, there is no advertising on any of the Google searches (or very few anyway).
My feeling right now is that I would rather start over with something that I can possibly make a success of in 3 to 6 months and not stick with something that might take me 1 to 2 years to get success with.
I would really value the advice of some experienced members with this decision.
