I've just started a blog using a " green" niche. I'm doing this to gain passive income ,learn about Wordpress , learn about affiliate marketing and just because I like the niche. I've been reading a lot of the advice on here as well as other sites. Right now I'm somewhat torn between two philosophies or methods. I've noticed one technique is to write a review blog and really push a sub niche designed around one specific product( clickbank). Another philosophy seems to be write a blog on a general broader niche you are familiar with and invest in it. In theory, over time it could gain traction and then start advertising affiliates with better success. Has anyone had success combining the two methods and tried to send traffic to those affiliates as you build your blog ? ( in this case green/survival, a huge niche with many sub niches) This means possibly adding multiple ads on the blog over time as I post other articles or Is it better just to stick to a micro niche and dedicate an entire website to that one affiliate ad? Im pushing click bank products now but later I plan on adding other types of affiliate products and drop shipping as well. Thoughts? I just figure I may as well make a quality blog but on one side of me I feel like these affiliates to clickbank cheapen the authority of the blog, on the other hand I feel as if I can just blend them into the site. I can always separate them to build a good reputation on the blog and to keep it simple stupid for those clickbank products. I started a week ago so forgive me if I sound like an annoying nuber. Thoughts ?
