I cant find a niche to save my life and feel confused constantly with all this stuff.... When researching niches i can find products with low competition using long tail pro but i'm struggling to throw it all together. For instance, does your homepage need to optimized? or can i just set up a blog style site and start reviewing products with pages that are optimized??
As for the product based websites, just say i wanted to set up a site about pressure washers, the niche itself gets a lot of searches yet i can only find a handful of products that only get a few searches a piece, would this be a waste of time? Then there's finding keywords for your category pages and all of the products on your site, do these all need to have a high search demand?
I'm finding it really hard to find something to settle on as my first attempts at this haven't worked out and i really don't want to fail again as that would literally put an end to my extremely short affiliate marketing stint.
I just feel like i have been spending the last 3 months trying to get somewhere with all this stuff making mistake after mistake and just when i think i'm starting to get it i hit a brick wall when it comes down to the structure of it all, all these hours of endless keyword research and nights that i feel like im throwing down the drain when i could be spending time with my kids in the vein hope that one day i will get somewhere has really got me thinking, is this worth it?!!
Maybe i just haven't got it, whatever it is! I hope someone can restore my faith in this whole thing before i throw my laptop in the bin and wash my hands of this whole affiliate marketing thing.... Please help desperate man in need of some serious knowledge! Thanks, Harry
