I'm marketing a new website with a very basic niche called thepoorgolfer if anyone has anyone interest. It's just a basic golfing website. I'm excited to have launched this site but what advice someone have for niche advertising?

    Your question seems kind of generalized, hopefully I can help.

    My advice for Niche Advertising for you is first Identify your niche and sub-niches.

    It looks like your niche is Golf and your sub-niche might be for used golf balls, as your page describes: used and recycled golf balls that the pros use.

    So from here you will want to identify good keywords that get a lot of search traffic and have little competition.

    If you are planning on doing Organic search traffic then find keywords that have exact match terms and are long tail keywords, that is, keyword phrases the three are or more words.

    This will help to reduce the chances of huge amounts of competition.

    It's best to go after keywords in [exact] match that get 1000 or more searches per month.

    If you are a beginner in SEO than you should try to go for less competitive keywords, one way to do this is look for ones that have less the 20k competing pages in "quotes".

    But what you REALLY want to look for is what kind of sites are on the first page of Google and how strong those sites are. If they are big Authority sites then it's best to stay away from these.

    However, if you find a lot of free-to-post sites such as Ezine Articles, Go Articles, Hub pages, Squidoo, or Buzzle, then you should be able to compete with them and win.

    I hope this helps!
