Keyword, Niche and Market Research

I run a site reviewing a number of products, but most of my sales come from one particular product. My question is, should I start a new site for that product only?

Don't fix what works! Why not keep reviewing the 1 particular product on your exiting site (since that seems to work well) and start another site for the other products.

I have one page I have started dedicating to product reviews exclusively. The majority of my site is geared to one entity and it works for my needs. I had to think outside the box a bit to make it as seamless as possible. Dealing with one site for everything to start is plenty.

If you already have success with your site, I suggest you keep it. This way, you also have chances that people will look around your site and maybe find other interesting stuff. It will increase your traffic.

I hear what you're saying Max, but most of my content is now geared to that one product. Thanks for your input.

One product review site, better than multi product review?

For example .bike for a cycling website

I agree with Marion.

Those new extensions usually cost more if not when you first purchase them then when it's time for renewal. Also most people expect a dot com so they're likely to type in yourdomainnamebike.com

That's true Marion, at Godaddy .bike is $60 compared to $18 for .com.

I like the idea of it but don't know of results. Is it not very expensive?

This could be interesting, no doubt there'll be some fish hooks to watch out for.

Thanks for the info!

From my 20 plus years, [forget the rest - they don't count! ha!].
Use as a header background or page background on your blog is fine. Create a magazine or advert using it is for commercial gain. As with copyright and so on, 80% different is not the same as an original. Thus, if you added to the picture, eg - an overlay and other pics, it quickly is no longer the original work. So it will depend on how you wish to use such a photo. Not withstanding that if an image will do it that good for you, then usually there is a minor fee for using it that in this case I would be more than happy to pay. My thoughts! Godspeed!

The non-commercial use is an issue if our site does promote the sale of any product or have any ads. I have seen some definitions of non-commercial use being not to sell...for personal use. Our blogs are personal, but we are trying to monetize our sites, so any other response on this definition would be helpful.

I read the terms and conditions of use and I still come away with questions. They say "not for commercial use". Now, does that mean they don't want me to sell their photos on my site or does that mean they don't want me to sell anything on my site while I'm showing their photos? I'm not sure. Are there any free legal people out there in WA that could interpret the terms of use of the Getty Photos being offered?

I think it means you should not sell or redistribute their photos; you could sell o your site but don't sell their photos or redistribute them.

If you have taken for free from them you can not do any commercial activity on their products or services. you may not earn on what is not your belongings.

If it helps I found a site http://all-free-download.com/ that has a large amount of free images you can use as you would like no strings attached.
