How many niche sites do you set up a week? A month?

by Gunsblazen 57 replies
Just wondering, like how LONG do you work on a niche site before you set it and forget it and move on to the next shiny object lol

I'm still new, but I'm limiting myself right now to 1 domain per week. So I have to go full force on 1 site at a time.

or do you set thresholds like "20 pages and 10 backlinks...lets see what happens"

Thanks!

    I'm starting on my third, started the first back in January. So at the current pace, I'm putting one out every two months. Neither of my sites are ever "done" (fresh content added all the time), so there isn't really any arbitrary threshold I aim for before starting another site.

    I just plug away until I find myself with extra time to use and a new niche ready to enter.

    Started my second site one month ago (my previous site was a personal-esque IM site). I have just about 18 posts on it. I plan to work on this for another month or two before I start another site.

    I might look into autoblogs. That way I can create more sites instead of putting all my effort into writing for each of my sites.

    I only have two niches. I think you should only have one niche. Then be the best in that niche. Otherwise you are spreading yourself to thin.

    I used to do a lot. Now I've totally fallen back from all of that 'super volume' type stuff.

    I do probably 2 or 3 new sites monthly.

    Its all about quality not quantity. Niche sites aren't just landing pages and they need to be providing a decent amount of value to make any decent money or last long enough in the rankings. The hardest part can be staying focused with all the daily distractions, but once you focus your efforts you will only improve.

      Who says you can't have both? I finished site #137 today and every one I build has unique useful content and a very nice design/graphics. I am proud of every one of them.

      One tip I do have is this: Start by just using a Wordpress default theme out of the box. Put 3-5 500 or so word articles on it. Just get it up as fast as you can don't worry about it being pretty. Worry about finding out if it will rank easily and then get it pretty later. Just get it up, let it sit and move on to something else.

      I have another #50 or so sites in this stage and as they get ranked I make them pretty, monetize them and add more content. Some sites just won't work. I have a bunch, but I only wasted about 15 minutes on each (I outsource my writing). No sense in wasting hours making the site all pretty if it is never going to rank right?

      Every day I either research keywords and buy domains, build a raw site, or finish and monetize a site. It is a continuous cycle.

    I used to do this more than I do now, just because I have a lot of other stuff going on now, but I would buy domain names, put some content, 5 to 10 unique posts, and then just let them age.

    Then maybe around 3 months to 6 months I would start paying more attention them and usually work on 2 or 3 at a time. I would focus on site 1 for a week (design, content, backlinks), then move to site 2 for a week, then site 3 for a week.

    Then i would come back see what was happening with site 1 (check rankings, find any long tails I'm getting traffic for, etc). I would just rinse and repeat over and over. Works great.

    A lot of the waiting you can bypass if you have cash and can buy some good aged domains. Say you bought a 3 year old site that was a pr 4 or 5, that baby would rocket up the serps.

    More like top 10. But I don't really go by that alone. Once a site consistently gets around 50 unique visitors a day I will move it to stage two. Rankings don't make money, traffic does.

    What is the search volume of the keywords on your site? Mine all have a minimum of 2,500 exact local searches for the main keyword.

      Would your sites be classified as "sniper", micro-niche-esque sites or more as authority sites? I'm assuming micro sites because you only add a couple articles for the first stage, but how many more articles do you add on later stages - how much do you develop the sites?

      Also, for those initial articles, do you usually add pure informational content or affiliate review articles?

      And, it must be something in the air haha

      2000 per month. Exact local.

      And the page ranks are awful on page one. #1 is a 3, a couple 2's, a 1, a zero, and the rest no PR.

      The first time it ranked it was 125 with just the name and an about page up.

    I never completely do that.

    I continue to add an article to each of my sites, three times per month.

    I have 8 niche sites, all started over the last three and a half years. That's about one 1 per 5 months, on average. A bit different from your rate of progress.

    No, not at all: I already know fairly confidently before setting up each of mine that I won't need anything like 20 pages to attract floods of highly targeted traffic through article marketing. 4 or 5 pages and no backlinks at all are plenty for me (to start with, I mean - they do gradually grow, of course).
