Keyword, Niche and Market Research

Hi all, so I have just done some SEO research on a particular topic I am interested in pursuing, and my thought is to make my own digital products around this topic. It's an ar

How about making your old site alive again by creating your new niche down site and send traffic to your old one, since it already have the topic? An old site can be more valuable.
You wouldn't want to get rid of your old credit card just to get a new one. Your credit history history would suffer and your score would drop lower. The same applies to old sites friend. If it has years of authority, then it would be a gain to you if you link the new site to your old. All the best!

Hi Liz
Hanging a whole product on 1 keyword sounds a little risky - of the 36 sites in competition with you - how many of them offer a digital product? Have these competitors been in the niche longer than you have - if so, why are they not selling a digiprod (if they aren't).

Is there any chance of semantic linking here, so you build a safety net of keywords - just in case.

On the old site did you have Google Search Console installed - if so, what do the historic figures say - where did your traffic go on your site, what did they spend the most time reading/watching.

Is your new product a sync for the traffic your old site received and does it 'gel' with what your audience already read on your old site?

I think you have a little more research to do before you can safely answer your question.

Good luck

Thanks so much-this is good advice, and sensible. :)

Hey
If me I start a new focused niche site with the planning you have done and like Catherine said forward traffic form the established one to the new site in addition to the normal routing obtaining organic traffic. I would leave the authority site intact. But I hope you are updating it with new content, because my understanding it takes a long time effort and sweat to reach a 5 year old authority site. Let me know what you decide.
Wishing you a terrific day.
Wishing you continued success.

if left to me both. I would create a product around the new site, Or more precisely put the sales page on the new site but send traffic to your product from the old.

If your new topic is merely a niche down of your current content, I'd stick with the old site. You'd benefit from its age and the authority your current content already has. I suspect it will take you a lot less time to get new traffic to an older site than with a new one.

You could simply start filling your website with your niched down content and -if needed- rebuild some of your website step by step.

Hello all. I have been a member of WA for a number of years now, but the last 2 years I have disconnected from the community and let my websites stagnate. Long story short-I wa

Many re-do the training since it is always changing! Glad to see you active and ready for some more!

Jeff

It doesn't hurt to go back through the training. I'm occasionally brushing up and going back to certain sections. You can also search through some of Jay's latest videos to see if anything has changed too.

Thank you for your input!

Come at it like you justed joined and go through the training form the beginning.

And ask questions when you need a hand. Easy peezy.

Thanks! Good advice.

Getting Started

Hello, my yearly membership it about to end, and I want to grab the special before it ends, but when I click on the offer, there is nowhere I can actually purchase the offer. W

Liz,
I think the special ended yesterday.

Jim

It’s still popping up on my login page saying Inhave a day left to claim it. Trying to! But can’t find where.

There is no clickable link?

Jim

No there isn’t. I mean it takes me to a sales page with no clickable link.

Contact WA support. They'll get it ironed out. And, since you have been trying to get the sale while it is still valid, they will, most likely, extend it for you until the link is fixed.

Jim

Thanks Jim. :)

Hi all, I have outsourced a job to a developer to change themes for me (please don't tell me to do it myself-I already tried and nothing made sense to me at all...and not only

It can usually be done within your WordPress administration Or he may need to use FTP but that's not the usual case.

Thanks Marion. The premium theme I am changing to is heavy duty compared to the one I have been using and I suspect he may need to fiddle with the php codes which I can only suspect is why he needs access to C panel for FTP reasons.....Thanks for your help.

As I said earlier, you really shouldn't allow a stranger on the internet access the back-end of your website. In answer to your question(s) I don't know why he would need access to your 'C panel' : (
