You have likely heard the term "keyword research". This is the act of finding keyword phrases that are relevant to your niche and deciding whether or not it is appropriate to build content around that particular keyword.

Keywords are going to be the “root” of all your SEO success.

First Off, WHAT IS A KEYWORD?

A keyword is simply a word or phrase that people search for in the search engines. Every time you do a google search you are entering a "keyword" into the search box.

For example, here is an example search I did in Google.

This is a keyword. I searched for something that I was looking for and Google is going to provide me with the most relevant results (see below).

When I click on one of these results, I am taken to a website that has been "ranked" in Google. If I purchase something from that page or click an ad, that website owner will make money as a result.


With your SEO and your keyword research efforts, your goal is going to be to building a list of relevant keywords to your niche, and then working to rank them in Google just like this.

There are literally MILLIONS of keywords in every niche, leading to incredible potential. And by being a member at Wealthy Affiliate and what you are going to learn here about proper "ranking techniques", you are going to have the competitive edge over your competition.

In this lesson you are going to be tasked to come up with a few "keywords" relevant to your website and your niche.

Each Post You Create Will Be Targeting a Keyword...


Moving forward, you are going to be building content on your website. Each page of content that you create will target a brand new keyword (and we will be showing you how).

This means that every page/post will have the opportunity to rank under that given keyword in Google and lead to you getting traffic.

100 posts = 100 target keywords = 100+ potential Google rankings.

This can and will lead to mass amounts of traffic and those that follow along with this training are going to see their traffic continue to go up with every "keyword targeted" page or post that they create on their website.

Remember, Google and other search engines exist because of CONTENT and if you can deliver quality content (that targets low competition keywords), you will be able to get great rankings!

I have created a video walk-through of this lesson and I suggest you watch on keyword mastery. It is going to increase your comfort level with keywords by 100 fold!

 

DISCUSS VIDEO: Keyword Mastery - Keywords are the Foundation of Your Success

Task 1: Perform 5 different searches using Jaaxy.com

Your next task is going to be performing 5 searches relevant to your niche using the Jaaxy Keyword Tool.

There is a quick search feature available to you right within the Jaaxy menu. You simply click on the menu and it will pop up the submenu, with the search available right within it.

You can see I have entered "increase vertical jump" into the search (as shown below).

My suggestion is to start broad with a few of your searches (ie. two or three word searches). For example if your niche was "basketball skills & drills", you might want to start with the search terms:
  • basketball drills
  • basketball skills
  • increase vertical jump
  • dribbling drills
  • etc

After performing the search, you will simply want to click the "magnifying glass" icon or press enter on your keyboard.

Here are how the search results look for the "increase vertical jump" search.

As you can see there are several columns of "keyword data". These are all very important when it comes to choosing keywords that are going to be useful to you.

  • Keyword. This is the search phrase that the data to the right of it is representing.
  • Avg. This is the overall monthly traffic this search term gets, globally.
  • Traffic. This is the estimated amount of traffic you will get if you rank on the first page of Google under this term.
  • QSR. Known as Quoted Search Results, this is the exact number of results in Google that you are competing with under this search phrase. In other words, this is how much competition you have.
  • KQI (Keyword Quality Indicator)

If you do a search and you don't see the full data, you simply need to click the "Get QSR" link and it will fetch the data for you. You will see that if that particular keyword has never been searched before.

Next, I want to discuss how to "choose" appropriate keywords for your content. This is critical in terms of getting ranked in Google and being the most efficient with your time. Don't worry though, it isn't all that complex. :)

The Rules of a Quality Keyword

There are a few rules that you need to follow

Rule #1: More than 30 monthly searches. You want your far left "Avg" column to ideally be greater than 30. Sometimes it is OK to go with a search volume less than this, but over 30 searches per month is ideal.

Rule #2: Less than 100 QSR (Competition). You want to keep your competition below 100 pages in Google, the lower the better though obviously. You will likely come across many terms with less than 100 QSR when doing your research, and that is even better!

As you progress with your website, under 200 is perfectly fine as you will be gaining more authority and better ranks in search engines.

Rule #3: Keyword must make sense. This is critically important. If the keyword doesn't make grammatical sense, don't use it. Do another search on the keyword that makes sense as that will likely give you different data and that is the data you want to measure.

An example of this is "best tips lose belly fat" which doesn't make grammatical sense (it is missing the "to"). I would do another search on this but this time "best tips to lose belly fat".

Do this exact process within your niche to come up with 5 Keywords.

Hi Johnathan looks like you have a wide range of interests there, if you look at the technology side of things pick the one that you feel you can create the most content around.

Focus on that, once you start establishing a foot print widen it out, say start home security then include smart homes etc.

In the beginning it can be about learning the processes, creating the website, adding content and so it goes.

Start narrow broaden out as you go.

hi, new here.
im trying to focus on something i love and is also up and coming as my niche. im thinking marijuana. Its being legalized extremely fast around the states the uk and Canada. my products would be, seeds, cbd oils and tincture and books and guides on how to grow and properly consume marijuana.
what do you think?

Hi - marijuana is not legal in the UK and is unlikely to be in the foreseeable future. So, remember, that your website will be seen worldwide, including in the countries where it is illegal.

However, if you want to promote CBD, which doesn't contain the THC which makes you high, then yes, that is a hot topic and there are affiliate programs for that.

The sell of MJ online is not legal nor is it legal in many countries, including the US, UK, etc. I wouldn't attempt to promote the sale of it only, but you could have a website dedicated to news within the the industry and to the apparel or collectibles in the space.

Or you could choose a completely different niche. Up to you.

I like it, sounds good to me. Could be quite lucrative. I won't ask your age but if you have been around nearly as long as me then you should already have a good deal of knowledge around that topic. Good luck, get into that training and stay on it. I have read the training and I go back to it repeatedly even though I know the basics its good to keep it fresh.

Also, what you're doing right now, talking to the community and getting feedback. Keep it up. You can always get good solid suggestions and direction whenever you need it.

One of the things that has kept me right here, is the community here. There is really a great bunch of people here. Don't tell them though, we don't want their heads blowing up :-)

Hi, guys!

Life distracted me to finish the WA course, thankfully I'm back and I'm so grateful life gave me another chance to come back here. :)

Talking about niches, I have an idea about making a site for people who love making pastries or are interested about pastry world.
So niche would be about: pastry ingredients, pastry tools, recipe books etc.
It sounds good to me. What are your opinions, guys?

Have a nice day!

Sounds like a great niche. You might think of adding pastry recipes for people on the Keto diet. It almost eliminates carbs so finding a good pastry is real hard.

So I was thing about using Travel gear as a niche.

Hi there
I like the way you think - very creative :-)
Travel Gear sounds like a great niche to me, just be careful not to go too broad, from what I understand, it is best to keep your niche as narrow as possible. If you look at just suitcases and bags, the opportunities are huge.
Hope that helps you.

If I already have a WordPress Premium website can I bring it over to WA as one of my two websites? How does that work with paying my yearly premium WP website fee? Does that remain separate or would it fall under my premium membership fee with WA? How does that work?
Reply
webcash2us Premium
Not as a free member, that only covers the two site rubix sites.
But you could copy the site and install it on one of the free sites.

You can have the WA DNS pointed at your site as a premium member and it would be hosted by WA free under your premium account.

You can move the domain name here but than you would need to build the site again.

The fee you are currently paying will remain unless you move the site to eliminate those hosting fee's, the same with your domain registration, it remains unless you bring it to WA.

I am finding it hard to find my Niche, I want to do so many things, but yet I don't want to steer away from what I am wanting to do. I am a simple man with simple ways, I had a Locksmith business, but it became too hard to stand and walk because of my back and feet disability,

I hope this does not sound bad; but my Dad has knee Problems. I can't say what to do about the back; other than buy a Brace; if you want to? But, I can say about the feet disability. You could buy: "Dr. Scholl`s" for feet. Or you could look into getting other added padding for your Shoes. If you have added padding to your shoes; it might help your feet and back. I apologize if you have thought of this before. But, if you have not? You might want to try to get some kind of padding for your Footwear.

If you enjoyed the locksmith work, you could go insturctional with it, or advertise to retailers (places to get quality/quantity) instead of consumers?

I have already typed out an article on the topic of male pattern baldness only it isn't posted online just a rough draft. I'm just not sure I want this to be my niche because I was thinking more about along the lines of how make money with affiliate marketing as I am told this is the easiest to get started. However, I don't want to throw all that work I put in so far on the male pattern baldness article I typed out.

You could include in your article natural supplements that suppose to stop or decrease hair falling out. If you do a search on male pattern baldness affiliate program different companies will come up such as https://programorama.com/health/hair-loss/. point out the benefits of the supplement and if it is available in more than one place, become an affiliate of each one. Then list each place the product can be found in your article along with a link to click to get them to the other page, such at the main website, amazon, gmc, target etc. Regardless of which link they click if they make a purchase you make money!

Thank you Denise for responding. I will look into that. One quick thing, do I have to reference the origin of my research within my content or just certain places I deem necessary?
Reply
DeniseDavis1 Premium
Google actually likes it when you reference another site. That is a part of off-site seo and google favors it. You can also contact the other site and let them know that you have written an article and have linked to them. If they like your article they may link back to you so that their followers can see your article. This is how you build domain authority which helps you to get found in search engines. Just make sure the site you are linking to is a worthy site. If not it could actually hurt your site in google eyes. you can use the moz domain tool to find out the other site domain authority rating. The higher the number the better.

I'm hoping for some feedback on the niche I have chosen. I wa t to do a parenting blog about raising 2 girls. My second child is extremely difficult and is giving me lots of content to explore, everything from eczema, to picky eating and sleep problems. My 14 year old has her own set of issues for me to write about, whether she likes it or not. I feel like parenting blogs are everywhere. Is this to broad? Do I need to narrow in more? Thanks for any advice on this subject.
Reply
MatthewT93 Premium
You have an idea, it just needs a bit of tweaking. You have the experience to talk about raising "difficult" children. That could be the focus of your writing. Your audience would be parents who are raising similar children, right? Now you'd want to start brainstorming topics you can discuss that ALSO relate to products your audience would want. That's where you're going to be able to monetize your efforts and get paid. Your website should be a mix of informative articles, blogs, reviews, etc.. that also include relevant product suggestions. You can write about any parent topic you'd like, it doesn't always have to lead to product suggestions, but just know that product suggestions is where you make your money. If you can find a good amount of related products to this niche, and can think of ways to fit them into your writing, then it's a good choice.
Reply
In following that idea(from Matthew) , maybe theres a product you want to try and as an affiliate maybe the company will send you a sample to try and then you could blog about it, keeping some money in your pocket as you potentially make money by sharing your results. Maybe even YouTube reviews as well as blogs, doubling your earning potential over time.

There are a lot of parenting blogs, but like @JAD1584 said, you're on to something with dealing with "difficult children", or kids with a lot of quirks. You could get creative with it, and people will come to see the unique ways you handle your situation. Maybe some products which keep your kids occupied.

I've been an Amazon affiliate for awhile (long before I joined WA) and I've never been charged an advertising fee.

I logged in and looked around, the only thing I saw relating to advertiser fees, it's something you have to sign up for and not related to the affiliate program.
Reply
MatthewT93 Premium
I know it sounds confusing, but "advertising fees" are actually referring to the money being paid TO you, not BY you. It's the fee (% of the sale) the company pays you when you advertise for them. Amazon is the one who is paying the fee, not you. You're recieving the fee, if that makes sense.

Hello Geyth, interesting name by the way. Based on my research it is best to focus one one niche and build on top of that whether it be e-books, films, etc. Once you have your niche down which it sounds like digital products, you can find something more specificically related to digital products and build content around that whether a blog or you-tube channel and promote your product that way. I'm suprised Clickbank doesn's support your country as I understood they were compatible globally. I will search for one and let you know. Do you have an idea as to what digital product you would like? A niche like affiliate marketing is good niche where there are several digital products to choose from. Anyway hope this helps and wasn't too confusing, ciao.

But start now if you haven't already and layout what you know so far in a microsoft word document and do a rough draft and build off of this when you learn more from your research. You can promote digital products based on this high quality content you are going to create on your website or blog or you-tube channel or whatever you are comfortable with. I haven't forgot about finding a platform like clickbanks that supports your country so just hang tight ok.

Hello, Denise. That sounds great! A good way to start is by finding products that relate to your niche, and then basing some of your articles around them.

Hello, thank you for that informative video.
I notice that some sites use Privacy Policy and some use Disclaimer rather than Privacy Policy itself. I'm a little bit perplexed on the use of both pages and what I have found on Google is that Privacy Policy is for web sites that occasionally request customer's personal information or sites that sell stuff to protect their clients' privacy. On the other hand, I'm not quite sure what Disclaimers are used for and seeing that my niche for my first web site is not focusing on selling but rather on like a personal 'how to make money' blog for people to read. So, is Privacy Policy a must in my web site or should I use Disclaimers instead?
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - a Privacy Policy advises visitors that your website will set cookies, use Google Analytics, and retains any comments made on your posts.

An Affiliate Disclosure advises potential customers that you receive a commission if they click on any of your affiliate links. They have a right to know this.

That requires a lot of work and keeping up with two sites will be hard to do especially just starting out in this business.

It's best to select one of the two and go in that direction to start out. There's a lot of content writing, it's best to get the one going strong before attempting to do two sites.

Down the road you may want to venture into the other once you have the knowledge and talents to do both.

All The Best

There are a couple of ways to look at it.

First off, don't spread yourself too thin. Focus on one business and get it up and running. Then, when it's semi-self-sustaining, start another if you wish.

I know many people think, why not just do both and, if you're an affiliate marketing veteran, sure but, if you're not, take the time to learn the process. Don't rush it.

As for which one is more lucrative... It all depends on what niches you compare, how much effort you put forth, the affiliate program and commission structure, and so on.

Because most of the time you're going to make mistakes with your first website that you want to avoid with your second. And that's why I never recommend to newbies doing two sites at once. Most people can't even keep with writing consistent content for one site regularly let alone two.

And you shouldn't just base your niche on what's more lucrative. If you're not actually knowledgable or passionate about the niche, it will show in your content. And people won't trust it as much and thus impact your conversions. Furthermore you're more likely to give up when you don't see those immediate results on a niche you picked because it's more "lucrative". The reality is any niche site will take months to see results. So you better off picking something you really know, are passionate about and meets what I laid out here: Chasing after the most lucrative isn't the best policy. You need to think long term and be ready for the marathon.

I have started doing something like this on my website using Amazon. But this video has shown me how much more in depth I need to go to be successful at it. A little overwhelming to be sure and looks incredibly time consuming. Not that I’m put off by that per se. It’s eye opening, challenges my level of dedication, and if I really have the time commitment to do it. That helmet snack website took A LOT of work!

You likely will never use this, but it is if you have another Wordpress website elsewhere, you could in theory EXPORT the content, then import it into your website.

As I said, the application for this tool is likely never going to be there for you. I have never personally had a need to use this.

I did the Word Press thing with Host Gator. I got my Web Name and the monthly cost total 25.66. That was great. Now I put my shop together and I am ready to go live but I can't get the button on my items to activate and go to the cart. I gave them a call. I am only paying 10,88/month for this.

OK now I get to talk to someone that tells me they have a team that will go in and look at my shop and fix it for me. Here is the catch, they will do it for me for 49.00/mo. What a surprise. I could have gone with Go Daddy for 19.00/ month with them paying for advertisement and being able to go to google etc only if you pay for the privileged,

So Far on here I have not laid out any money, but they are willing to teach me about SOM(?) I think this is placement for advertisement. Any way I figured I would take advantage of what is offered for free, look at my finances and then go from there. I do not need the premium yet but when I do, I will stop paying Gator there money and go with this. I am very willing to give it a try. What more can I loose. I have already decided to use the internet for my home business. I have already spent a few dollars chasing after some elusive Funnel butterfly that makes no sense to me at all. And ate my money.

This is just my opinion. I guess everyone can learn there own way and make there own mistakes. I wish I had found this first before loosing time and money on other fake programs.

Consider yourself lucky, I have spent many thousands of dollars chasing the next great thing online. Look, I have spent years at Godaddy, Hostgator, Bluehost and some others that are not even worth the mention. To be perfectly honest with you. If you don't have any real experience with internet marketing, affiliate or otherwise, you are much better off right here.

I'll tell you why, you are going to have problems arise, or at best questions that you don't have the answers to. Godaddy, Hostgator and the rest of those hosting companies are not going to teach you how to run that business of yours. What they will do is charge you every time you go to them for help and that is only if it is directly related to your website. Questions about how to best market your products or how to get traffic or any number of other problems you may face while running any business are not going to be answered by them. They will sell you a search engine product that is supposed to help you with traffic and it's not going to do much if anything. If may submit your site to the search engines, but so will your sitemap when it's built.

For starters, that's not their niche? Also, they are not going to have you or anyone else coming back at them for problems arising from information that they may give you. Here you have more people to help you than you can count, and this is what we do here. Were all affiliate marketers.

Is everything here perfect, no it's not, but it's a heck of a lot better than any other place I have been in the last 10 years online, and I have been around I can assure you of that. Hostgator and Godaddy have you on servers with literally hundreds maybe thousands of other websites. I have not seen the servers here yet, but I'm told that after 30 days I will have more access and I will be waiting for that to happen. That, however, that is not a make or break deal. I like it here and I truly believe that if I have an issue with something Kyle will help me to get it sorted out, and I know that anything related to affiliate marketing will be answered here if anywhere! This is Wealthy Affiliate, and I am actually proud to be a member here.

I have done my research, and there are many talkers online, but what I have found here are "DOERS"! You can take that to the bank Bonnie Myers.

One other thing and this was why I stopped what I was doing to talk with you when I noticed. My sister's name is Bonnie Meiers.

It caught my eye when I saw it, and the first thing I thought was what are the chances? Of course, I noticed the spelling of your last name so I knew it wasn't my sister.

Now you can do what you want Bonnie, but I guarantee you that you will change your mind and hopefully before you lose too much more money in the process.

Good luck, and if you decide to do this right I will see you at the top when you get there!

yes it's really worth it. Trust me I'm in the same shoes you are exactly. I was hesitant to put any money into this right away. I skipped going premium but since there was a special I wanted to see what I could do during that month. So far I haven't had to spend any more money. There are so many advantages such as Jaxy tool, Keyword lists, multiple sites you can create etc. That's just to name a few. We're in this together and trust me some people have or will feel like you including myself. Give it a try!

There is a lot of hard work involved and the learning here never really stops. You can remain a free member for a while if you prefer and join whenever you feel comfortable doing so.

The commitment with premium is to take things to the next level in your business and what you learn from completing the courses will have you prepared to move forward with your online business.

The process here is to set you up for long term success and by far this is not a get rich quick type of program. It takes a lot of time, dedication and commitment to make it become a reality.

Daniel - think of the Starter membership as a free trial offer. It provides you with plenty of opportunity to find out what WA has to offer, and to decide on your own commitment level.

And even then, you can take advantage of the $19 special offer for your first month of Premium.

While you can certainly get started on your SiteRubix website and affiliate marketing without Premium, there's really nothing better than Premium - see the comparison here:

In the meantime, make the most of your first 7 days!

Hi Angela. I thin the Health and Wellness niche is way too broad. My suggestion would be to list every sub-niche that you can think of that relates to health and wellness. i"ll bet you can come up with dozens of sub-niches. Next look at every sub-niche and even "niche-down" from there. When you have your list, pick the sub-niche that most appeals to you. And I wouldn't worry about there being too little interest in that sub-niche - with the number of people interested in health and wellness, I'm sure there will be many, many people interest in every aspect of the topic.

Good luck, and all th best. :-)

Comment on at least Two people: -

I really don't feel qualified to do that as I am no expert in this context - or in any context for that matter.

Could I just say that in setting our own goals we attempt to determine as much relevant, factual information as is possible in the time frame available.

Then, having some tentative ideas of what we might like to achieve we can determine what seems realistic, and worthwhile, and, importantly, whether it is worth the effort.

If we determine to go ahead, then we give it our absolute best shot.

The only reason we would stop is if new, negative information turned up and we couldn't find a sensible change of course that would get around it.

Hope this is helpful.

Travis - you're on the right track.

Start by following your passion, but narrow it down to a micro topic within that interest.

Drill down to a subject that perhaps you or someone close to you has had personal experience, or a topic in which you have particular knowledge or curiosity.

I really like this little training article on choosing niches: Try not to overthink it, and just go with your first instincts :)

Hi - if you know nothing about koi, then writing content is going to take a lot of research, and you need to be absolutely accurate in your advice. After all, these are valuable and expensive fish.

If manga or anime is a passion which you could talk about endlessly, then that may be a better choice, although I would narrow it down to one or the other, they are different audiences.

This was a helpful video, I tried in the past to choose a niche to go into and I chose to go into the coffee side of things. I was once a barista which was one of the happiest jobs I've ever had in my life, plus I drink coffee on a daily basis. It's just how do I narrow down something within such a broad category like the coffee industry which is I'm sure already full of expert sites? This is where I can get lost and frustrated making it difficult to move forward with online marketing.
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "coffee" do you want to help people out with? What aspect of this particular niche do you want to help folks with?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

I noticed that most internet marketers here and even from the introduction video explained are focusing on niche area where they recommend people to buy things through Amazon, AliExpress, ebay etc. Apart from promoting products and selling stuff via these comapanies, is it okey if I create my niche area focusing on people searching for money online like affiliating with Fiverr, upwork or any other sites out there that offers freelancing jobs because currently I am engaged with these area of work so maybe I have a gist of how it might work for others
Reply
Hi,
that's a very nice question. You can create any niche that is what you have and you are able to go round it , in and out. And if you focus referrals, there's that section on your dashboard. You can attract people from different social networks.

As I also figure out on the website, you can make money if allow ads on it. It depends largely on the traffic and rankings on google.

So the training was designed on how somebody can quickly get ranked on the network.
Just follow the training and do the tasks, hopefully you will get the best .

i would narrow it down a little bit as weight loss for teens is different to weight loss after the menopause.
so you could go for weight loss for women over 40 ( or in your 40's), for example
find out the dietry need for women within their 40's, whether there are special requirements- what to avoid, what to eat, etc.
talk to a specific audience and you will gain traction, try talking to everyone and you end up talking to no one.
it is a good niche so go for it.

When you upgrade and you register your own domain, you can actually move one of the existing sites to it and WA will put a forward in place from the old URL too. There's not really a way to merge two into one.

Hi everyone - quick question - I have created and published my Privacy Policy and it is on the website - it is showing as a page on the WP dashboard "Pages" area.
I can find it if I use the "search" function on the website - but I cannot see it when I log in and open the site. I have to "search" it via the search box on the website. Will this page show on the navigation bar once I build the menu/pages and link the page perhaps?
Reply
Jaz333 Premium
Yes, once you create a top navigation menu and drag the privacy policy page to where you want it, it will then show up on your site. The search box is usually a sidebar widget that is included with the theme, at least that's how it was with mine.

If you follow the training, Kyle will show you how to do this step by step :)

Good luck, Shannon

Hi Amanda,

You will need to manually add your privacy policy on your navigation menu. For me, I created a "privacy policy" link appear at the footer of my website. It's totally up to you where you want it to appear on your website.

With all the info in building websites can i build a one page website that is simple?

And do we have access to website templates that are already set up according to or a least close to your niche?

can we use our own website that was designed outside the WA Program?

i ask only because over the years as you already know they have come up with much simpler ways to create websites
it just seems to be little over overwhelming especially if your not
I.T savvy.

Hi Charlie

Here are some answers to your questions:

1. You could build a one-page website that is simple. the challenge is that your competition will probably have something more interesting available for the market. I would not recommend a one-page website. Content is king in the online world which means you will need articles on your site which attract your audience.
2. There are a couple of templates set up for necessary pages, i.e. affiliate disclaimer etc. Not niche-specific templates for the whole site.
3. You can use a website that was designed outside the WA program, that is no problem. Site support can assist you with bringing that it.
4. Like you, I am not IT savvy and have found the system and support within WA to be awesome with helping me build my site. It is a learning curve, my experience so is that the training gets you through all the learning you need.

I encourage you to
* get stuck into the training.
* if something doesn't make sense, ask for help in Live Chat, in the Help Center and direct with Site Support.
* Also, do the training more than once if it doesn't stick the first time - this is what I have to do :-)

Wishing you every success with your online business adventures!
Blessings

Hi,
If I get a referral from my link to a Amazon (for example) for a particular product and the person likely did not buy at the first time but later go back say after some days directly to Amazon site to buy same product that she discovered through my ad, would I get any commission for the product even though the actual purchase was not done through my ad at first.
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - Amazon has a 24-hour cookie, your customer would need to purchase it within 24 hours of clicking on your link.

You may be interested to learn, that with Amazon, customers don't even have to buy the particular product you are promoting, you get a commission on anything they purchase within that 24 hours.

Other affiliate programs have longer cookies, you need to read their terms and conditions.

You need to be more specific. What type of health area are you most interested in. Health and fitness are really two niches and both would still be to broad. Fitness could be "Getting fit for 40 plus" or"Fitness for Boomers" "Young and keeping fit" etc.jim
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You are right - health and fitness is too broad. But there are many potential niches within that you could choose from.

Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

I'm just getting started on here and one of the first things I read was that you can choose ANY niche for a website. But I've just watched the first couple of minutes of the 'How To Make Money' vid and its showing me a diagram that indicates that I need to sell a product. My project involves a service (a free service in fact). I know ecommerce websites are not the only websites that can generate revenue but I just want to confirm that WA's training isn't solely based on the assumption that you are selling a product from your website. Can someone speak to this pls? Thank you.
Reply
chender684 Premium
Nope, you are selling products or services by putting affiliate links to those products on your site and in your articles.
You do not need products of your own, no inventory, not shipping and no returns.
It is all done by links that you will created after you join Affiliate programs that go with your niche.
All of this is covered in detail within the training.
Reply
Ropesa Premium
You can still create a website even if you don't want to sell products, as long as you get traffic, you can still monetize your site by running ads on your website.

Most of the websites here at Wealthy Affiliate are Affiliate websites where people promote products from the likes of Amazon, eBay and others and they make commissions when someone clicks on the link and buys the product.

But there are also people who are selling their own products. And there are also people who have websites, where they make money by running ads.

Its really up to you, how you want to run your business.

When I first set up my domain/website a few weeks ago, I had brainstormed a general name for branding purposes (to branch off later into other related niches) that I thought was real snappy as it has a double meaning. This is of course the name that cannot be changed and thus leads to my concern here. My actual niche is obviously much narrower in scope/more focused and so I have my website title (i.e. the name that can be changed) reflect my actual niche. I'm now starting to think that this was a huge mistake and I should now set up a new domain/website with a name that reflects my actual niche as closely as possible.

I’m worried that since my domain/website name is more general/less direct in relation to my actual niche my eventual traffic and monetization will be negatively impacted as a result.

What do you think? Should I set up a brand new domain/website to reflect my actual niche as closely as possible OR should I keep using my existing domain/website even though it is more general for branding (and branching off into other related niches) and not focused specifically upon my actual niche for now?
Reply
Ropesa Premium
I actually think, by your domain not being too narrow, it gives you room to expand in the future as your website gains authority.

I find if your domain is too narrow, you have no room to expand that can limit you when it comes to content creation.

I think you should leave it as it is, and then create content that is very focused so the search engines can get a feel of your niche, then once you get the traffic and you gain authority, you can expand and create content that is still within your niche but not so narrow, if you know what I mean.

I hope what I have said makes sense.

JonathanMB Premium
Thanks, Ropesa.

What you have said does make sense to me. I find it validating since I chose the more general domain/website name for branding precisely because I wanted to have room to expand in terms of content creation. But recently, I have been worried about that decision while looking at my website title and then comparing it with my domain/website name with the URL address.

I think I'll continue with my original plan for now, unless I hear a compelling contrary case from others.

All the best and regards,
Jonathan

As long as your content on your website is related to your niche your SEO should be fine, your content is more related to your SEO then your website as far as I know. I just got that maybe 2hrs ago. I watched how Kyle has his website name (basketball skills and drills) in the training but his SEO was based on 3 point shots and so was his first content title name which was 3 point shots along those lines.

CHOOSING A NICHE

What is a niche?
It is your audience. The conversations, activities, job functions, and hobbies you do every day can be considered as a niche when you turn it into an opportunity to make a profit, build a community ( non-profit ), raise funds, and invest. My audience is interested in “ ELECTRONICS.”

Why I chose electronics?

I have always had an interest in products that are unique and innovative, technologically advanced, modern lifestyle, and traditionally used with modern decor. Electronics allow me to discuss the products with these descriptions that will interest me the most.

What is a macro niche?

It is the niche that will continuously bring in visitors and supporters, customers, or followers. Any niche can do such a thing, but in affiliate marketing, it isn’t logical to rely on one revenue stream.
My niche is ‘electronics,’ there are many products in this category but only a handful will have continuous visitors and supports, customers, and followers. The others are considered micro niches and have the potential to bring you a higher commission. For my macro niche, I chose “ AUDIO & VIDEO ”

What is a micro niche? ( I choose “CAR & VEHICLE ACCESSORIES” as a micro niche. My single niche will be “SMART & BLUETOOTH ACCESSORIES.” )

It is a niche explored in detail. Let's say you love spoons. Your micro is “spoons” your macro is “ dinnerware and cutlery “ and your niche is “ kitchen & dining.”

[ 1 ] about kitchen and dining? [ 2 ] about dinnerware and cutlery? [ 3 ] about spoons?
What’s the news
What’s the opinions
What’s the facts
What’s the products
What’s the services
What’s the support
What’s the bestseller
What’s the next release
What’s the current discounts and sales

The questions above helped me gain more insight on my niche and begin to make progress towards the goals I hope to accomplish in affiliate marketing.

Hello, I do have a question. It is obviously very nice to slowly build up your project while learning, but the idea of choosing a definitive domain so early makes me slightly nervous, as I fear a sub-optimal choice might negatively influence my future chances of success.
How relevantly does the name you chose as your domain correlate with the visibility of your website through keyword searches?
Hope the question is clear enough, I still lack the knowledge in this field to phrase it any better
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - your domain name should relate to your niche. However, people will find your website by searching for the keywords in your content, rather than by typing in the name of it.

If you are not yet ready to have your own domain, you can continue to work on your free site. It is a simple process to transfer everything over to your new domain when you are ready.
Reply
MattiaP Premium
Thank you for your answer. So, if I create a free website using a certain domain name, I will then be able to transfer to my own domain with a name that is going to be different?
Sorry for the confusion, but I am completely new to the world of websites
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - when you create your free site, it will end with the name SiteRubix.com, as it is known as a subdomain - WA will actually own it, not yourself.

When you are ready to purchase your own domain, it will end with .com, and is yours for life, providing you pay the yearly renewal on it, which is around $13.99.

DanOIS Premium
Diane's advice is the best from a practical aspect.

---

But I've battled with this dilemma many times.

So here are my thoughts on actually coming up with a domain name for yourself.

EMDs (exact match domains) for keywords aren't really a ranking factor anymore so it's best to go with something brandable.

Now...

Relevance converts.

But going too narrow with your name early on may restrict you as your business grows and you discover that you want to go in a specific direction.

For example, you may end up having 'matched betting' in your domain name to begin with...

But then if matched betting dies off - you may decide to head down the arbing or tipster route.

And you'd probably want a different name.

So you might want to pick a name that's related to your TOPIC rather than just your niche.

This would give you the flexibility to explore different niches without losing relevance (if that makes sense).

For example, I had a domain called 'profitable betting solutions' so that I had some breathing room as I pursued different betting strategies (MB, tipsters, Betfair trading etc).

But you can transfer your content to a different domain name so don't worry too much :)

Hope that helps a bit,
Dan
Reply
MattiaP Premium
Thanks Dan,

That is exactly my dilemma. As matched betting is going to only a part of the arguments I'll be dealing with, I am looking for a comprehensive and brandabpe name.

Hi - I'm at lesson 3 - Choose a niche. I feel stuck and indecisive about picking a niche. Here are my options:

1. Pick a hobby like personal audio gadgets - speakers, amplifiers, headphones, etc. This is something I'm passionate about. I could drill down further within that category.
2. Pick an info product like a course or a software. I've heard that info products pay higher commission, and there's less hassle as the product is entirely digital. Also, you can find higher cost products easily and earn more than the small ecommerce commissions.
3. Find something related to my current business. I currently run a content writing business that's exclusively for software companies. I could find an affiliate program that is relevant to my current industry. Eg. I see that VMware has an affiliate program.

My fears are:
1. Failing at the first attempt, or not getting enough momentum to reach my goals, and getting discouraged that affiliate marketing is not for me.
2. Not being able to split my attention between my current business (content writing) and affiliate marketing, and not doing justice to either.

I really want to succeed at affiliate marketing. If you were in my spot which of these 3 options would you pick? How would you handle the fears I have?

First of all I would stop procrastinating.

Its always best to go with something you have experience and/or knowledge of.

That way you can write with some authority (you have some of that already writing content).

You will know that people like to know that people who are trying to sell them something actually know what they're talking about.

This will build up trust and as you probably know, trust is everything.

You have the experience and knowledge so why not cash in on that experience.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Hi - here are my thoughts. Option one is a very broad niche and you would need to narrow it down. You say you are passionate about it, and that's generally what is advised, as your knowledge and enthusiasm will shine through and encourage your readers. Subconsciously or otherwise, you put it at number one!

Option two - physical products are no more hassle than digital products. All you are doing is referring a potential customer elsewhere, there is no customer service involved, in that respect. Yes, they do tend to attract more commission, but you have to pick your products carefully, as some are low-quality.

Option three - with your experience, you would gain trust with your visitors, and would no doubt find it easy to write about. However, as a professional writer myself, I have chosen niches in entirely different fields to what I normally write about. Otherwise, it would feel like an extension of work, a chore, rather than something I actually enjoy.

This is a long-term commitment, and if you set yourself up as wanting instant success, then you might consider yourself a failure. If you are realistic and realise that it will probably be six months or so before you start getting traffic, then you start with the correct mindset.

Achieving the balance between your current employment and finding time to work on your website can be challenging. Only you know how much time you can spare for your training and website management.

Good luck!

Firstly, I would write down each Niche idea on seperate pages, write the Pro's and Con's for each list. Then write down as many ideas as possible for potential blogs for each niche. Once this is completed I'd choose the one I found easiest to come up with ideas for.
Secondly, I wouldn't start a second website until the first one was running smoothly. It doesn't have to be making money yet but it should be at a stage where you've gotten over any potential pitfalls.
As for the fears, we all have them. You simply have to jump into the deep end and start swimming. You will never know how successful anything can be if you don't start.
Just remember that any blog can be improved at anytime.
All the best

Good Day, Twain.

You have many excellent options there.

Simply pick the one you are the most passionate and knowledgeable about.

Stop thinking so much about this and make a decision. Decision making is perhaps the most important quality of any business leader.

If you do not like your first niche you can always scrap it and begin anew.

Nothing is written in stone. There are millions of people making wrong decisions as we communicate with each other. It's more important that you choose a niche quickly and move on to creating a website.

You may find out that you chose the right one. Trust your intuition and dive in. Do not be the timid mouse that gets eaten by the lion.

What would Mark Twain have said?

As a matter of fact, he said this:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Throw off the bowlines and set sail for a brave new world!

Hi there, I have my own business and created my own website on wix. I have decided to follow a niche that will compliment my business and I wondered if it’s possible to somehow bring my wix website into the WA website builder to build upon? Not sure if that makes sense at all - hopefully someone out there will understand what I’m trying to ask! :-))
Reply
DCW2000S Premium
I honestly would be lying if I said absolutely not, but I will say that I really do not think you can bring your Wix site here to work on it?
If anyone tells you otherwise I would love to read exactly how that could be accomplished? I just upgraded to Premium but I have been online for a number of years now. I believe their website environment is set up for WordPress, but I could be wrong.
You could always upgrade to Premium like I just did, and then you will have hosting here, good hosting and plenty of help if you need it.
By the way, I did understand exactly what you were asking about your website. WordPress is a really robust CMS to build upon. I truly think it is only limited by your imagination. There are some big companies out there that employ WordPress for their companies websites. Some of these sites are quite intricate.

Google it up and you may just be surprised at what you find.

To your Success,

Please note, you need to be a premium member to host a site at WA.

Well, I guess if it's not WordPress it's not possible to move it over because our sites here are WordPress, I hope someone will clarify this issue, I was assuming your site is a WordPress site, I didn't think that being wix its not WordPress.

How about upgrading your membership here at WA, then build a website and move your content from your Wix site to the site you build here and then delete your Wix site? just a thought, of course, it could be a lot of work depending on how much content you have on your Wix site.

I went back to General Settings and noticed my Title wasn't in the Site Title Box. If I type it in it goes in my heading on the website- which I don't want because I already have the title in my heading. Will it hurt if I don't put the title in the Site Title Box? Thank you.

The title of your site can be anything relative to your niche

Your theme is set up to use the Site Title in the General Settings. Do you have it separately in your header?

You do want it in the General Settings so it is properly in the html code and found properly in Google, etc.

If you want, you can put the title in Site Title and update it and then put up your URL here so I can see what it looks like. Does that result in having two titles on your page?

@SirTristan Thank you for your reply and help. I put the title back in the title site box and I put my url below. It's the white title that is inserted when I put it in the title site box. The black is how I had wanted it when I made the https://postsurgerysupplies.com/

@SirTristan, Thank you for responding. I think I have it fixed now. I redid my heading graphic and took out the title there and put it in the site title box and changed the color to black. Thanks again.

Hi

I finally got the idea of a niche, I think. I am going to go over that section of the training again. Now, I love books and I love to read. I have not been very vocal about it, meaning I have not done a review, or even discussed them with friends or a book club. I also edit them in my mind, check spelling, correct grammar, etc., but it never goes further. I know there are people out there that need that skill, but, I can’t figure out how to use the skill as a way to earn income. Also, I love horses and I have some experience with them: riding, grooming even "gentling" them for other riders.

How can I find a niche in there and turn it into something that will be useful for others as well as bring me income? The problem is, I never know what to say or write.

HI Pat,
As far as books and editing, I can't help you there. I'm sure there might be work at home opportunities for that.

But horses, now there you might have some affiliate opportunities. I'm sure there are companies selling horse gear that you could sell through an affiliate program on your blog/website. You could offer articles on 'gentling' horses and all kinds of aspects of horse care in addition to highlighting horse care products.
Just a few of my cents. ;)

My concentration is very low/ bad. i am in many 100+ Traffic exchanges and 200+ Safelists. i get leads but not any signups up sales. I have about over 100 solo ads i can post. the traffic is not that problem at all. example: 10 leads per day with Power Lead System without any buyer and also I make blogs with PLR, but nothing seems te work for me.

Excuse me for jumping in here, and forgive me if I am way off beat with this comment. However, I did the whole safelists & traffic exchange thing a very long time ago. For me, what I found was that although I got plenty of tire kickers looking around my websites and landing pages they never bought anything.
It finally occurred to me that many of these people were having the same problems as me, cash flow!
In other words, they were as broke as I was at the time :-)
I may be wrong, I often am, but I was at those places to try and get cheap traffic, and that was exactly what I was getting!

Cheap traffic that wanted freebies and handouts of any kind because they had the same issues as me. I truly believe that I was simply going through a learning process that many of us go through in this new world of "making money online".

I can tell you this, if you stick with it you will have a breakthrough eventually. I finally stopped all the cheap stuff that came my way and waited until I could do things differently. I learned SEO to a great extent at least. Enough to get me free organic search traffic to my sites. Once I started making sales I was like a dog with a bone.

Good luck John, and don't give up! Go through the lessons here and it will happen. I know sometimes when money is needed several months can seem like an eternity. You can either spin your wheels with the tire kickers, or you can use that time to learn ways to get traffic that will benefit you, right here at WA.

I just watch the video "Affiliate Marketing" maybe I am getting ahead of my self here. My question is, I understand many big companies have affiliate programs. How do I enroll in that program to get commission? Is this something Wealthy Affiliate going to help me with while I am building my website?

Thank you

Jack
