I'm an animal lover, teacher, freelance writer, and an aspiring blogger. i have been married for 21 years to my wonderful husband, and we live in the country with our many cats and dogs. I have been a teacher for 21 years, and with many foot problems after even after 3 foot surgeries, I would like to make enough money with affiliate marketing to retire early.
I started a website a couple of years ago, but I have not been successful with it, as it is too general. When I joined WA, I decided to make a fresh start and try to do it right this time. Soon I, I will have a brand new website in a niche I have chosen, and I believe I can be successful!

Welcome, Linda
A pleasure to meet you and thank you for adding me to your network. Wishing you every success with your website on Wealthy Affiliate. It is very important to complete all the lessons and ask questions if you have any. I hope that you will be able to retire from teaching as soon as possible so as to give relief to your feet.

Hello Linda,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi and nice to meet you. I just used a training of yours a couple of days ago to set up my welcome message for any referrals I might get. My site is a niche site for cruelty-free beauty, but I am in the process of writing a page for my site to promote Wealthy Affiliate, so I want to be prepared if I do get a referral.
All the best!

Good afternoon Linda,

Reading your profile I see we have a couple of things in common. I have 4 cats and 1 dog and all are the abandoned type of dear animals. I also live in the country in an 180-year-old farm house with 50 cm thick walls, no air condition needed here.
I always tell the new people I meet here in case you need a good source for writing have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, some amazing manuscripts there.
Thank you for the follow and all the best.

Regards, Taetske

Will be happy to help out with comments, social sites, etc. as soon as I can catch up with what I am doing. A little behind as I completely started over with a brand new site, and I plan to just try to link to the new site from the old site. Almost ready to start publishing my content and will be ready to post for feedback, comments, etc.
I will be glad to go to your site and leave some comments if you don't mind waiting a couple of days. I know that sounds a bit crazy, but I feel like I cannot focus well until I work out the quirks and issues I am having trying to get my new site up and running.
Does this make sense?? I hope so. I will be back in touch soon!
Wishing you the best!

Thank you! So sorry I am just now responding to this. I work full time (which I hope will change in the near future) and this has been a very busy week at work for me with a lot of extra things going on. Thanks for your follow and I will be more than happy to return the favor. I may have to get to it this weekend, so please don't think I am being rude. I am also i the process of rethinking my website, so that has slowed me down on WA. I will be glad to comment on your G+ posts, etc.

I just followed you on Google + but have not had a chance to go to the other networks yet. I rarely go on them, which will probably have to change to get traffic on my site. When I log in to the others, I will certainly be glad to look you up!

Thank you for the following Linda. I too am an animal lover. I have a great passion for cats, especially for the six that own me LOL.

Success with your website is inevitable here at Wealthy Affiliate. I didn't see it listed, would love to visit it when you are ready to share it.

Yes, my cats own me too. Very passionate about cats and almost did my site about them. I left a comment on your site. Here is a link to my site. I thought I added one, but maybe I didn't. If you have time to comment, I would appreciate it.

Getting ready to head out but bookmarked your site. Took a peak while waiting for my husband. I can already tell that I am gonna love it. Being 53 and love makeup, I am sure you will be provided just what I need! My makeup skills and knowledge leave a lot to be desired.

That is very encouraging for you to say that. I would really like your opinion on the site. Of course I am just getting started. I hope to pick up the pace and write more posts soon.

I am from South Carolina. I would be glad to give my opinion on your site, but I would need the URL I think. I am new at this, but I think there is a place on WA somewhere to post a request for others to look at your site and give their opinion on how it is coming along. So I could comment about it, and others could as well.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Yes, I feel like I am being ridiculous trying to decide on a niche. I have always had trouble making decisions. I used to trade stocks a lot, and I could never decide what to buy. Always afraid of making the wrong decision!

I have been using the WA keyword tool after reading about how to use it. I am not sure if these keywords I have come up with are to be a niche or for writing blog posts in a niche. But here are a few ideas I came up with with info about each one:

Make Up Foundation for Women Over 50
Keywords: Best Makeup Foundation for women over 50
Searches 256
Traffic 44
Article Power 8.6
QSR: 12

Home Businesses for Women
Keywords: The Best Home Based Business for Women
Searches: 885
Traffic 151
Article Power 9.3
QSR:42

Keywords: The Best Home Business for Women
Searches 136
Traffic 24
QSR 14

Weight Loss Programs for Women Over 50
Keywords: Weight Loss Programs Women Over 50
Searches 948
Traffic 162
Article Power 9.3
QSR 8

I am a bit confused how to use keyword tools correctly but these are 3 ideas for niches. With Makeup foundation for women over 50, I am nearing 50 myself, have always worn makeup, and I have tried many foundations myself. But the commissions on makeup are rather low, ranging from 5 to 10 percent in most cases, but there are some expensive foundations out there which would of course result in more money for a sale. Lots of competition in makeup, but foundations for over 50 has low QSR.
With home businesses for women, I could promote Wealthy Affiliate! There are also a lot of digital products on Clickbank about starting home businesses or working from home on, and the commissions on Clickbank products are usually good.
On weight loss for women over 50, again, I am nearing 50, and would like to lose a few pounds myself. Weight Loss is a popular niche.

My greatest passion is animals, but here are two reasons I did not pick animals. I volunteer for a humane society and spend lots and lots of time doing animal rescues, feral cat programs, fostering, and feeding strays. I love them. However, it is almost becoming like a second job. I feel like I need a break from that sometimes, so writing content about something else may be more fun.
Also, I considered dog products or toys, but it looks like the competition with that is very fierce. Lots of searches, but I had trouble finding a QSR less than 200. Most keywords returned a QSR of over 300.

Other things I considered were: Children's Books, Hotel Packages, Dinner Cruises, American History, Camping Equipment, and Time Management/Procrastination.

Sorry this is so lengthy. I really value your ideas and opinions here. This is an important decision to me. I want the niche that will give me the best chance of gaining traffic and making sales.
If I just see traffic relatively soon after launching my site, it will be very encouraging for me.

Thanks a lot for your any insights here that you can give!

I want to give you a little perspective here: Have a read of that. You don't need to do keyword research when choosing a niche, you are simply choosing an audience and within that audience there are going to be 10,000's of keywords.

Ok. I will read this now. However, do you think if I go with makeup for women over 40 since I won't be 50 for 2 years would be better? I think so, and is makeup for those over 40 too broad? Narrow enough? Thanks.
Reply
LindaKwas Premium
I think I read this post already. I am sorry, Kyle, I really tend to overthink things!! Going with makeup for those over 40 if you think it's not too broad.
