Ok so let us move forward towards our Amazon Niche Site Case Study Update 1. I am running 2 Amazon niche sites and one of them is making good income for me and the other niche site has just been started.
I am following some awesome people to be on the right track in this niche site business. Let me give you some reference websites which you can also follow.
These sites have enough information to help you launch your own niche site. If you follow their advice and tips then you will definitely make a nice niche site business for yourself.
I have put together a resource for Amazon niche sites so that you can get everything in one place. I am updating this guide frequently so that every user can get maximum value from this, time to time.
So let’s start now. This is going to be my first official update but I am still confused whether I should write this niche site’s update monthly or quarterly. So I request you guys to please tell me what I should do in the comment section below.
To select my niche I simply go to Amazon, spend some time there trying to find out what niche has some healthy competition, what kind of pages are ranking in top 10 places in Google and can I achieve those rankings?. If there are forums, communities and Amazon pages there, then I know that I can out rank them for sure.
Some other important factors to consider when choosing a niche are: What kind of products does the niche have, are the prices of the product more or less than $50, do users need these products every month or do they buy these products just once in lifetime and most importantly, can I expand my niche site in the future?
Also some people see that the CPC of keywords in that niche should be atleast $2 . They do this because if they want monetize the site via adsense then they can make good money with this CPC.
Pick a keyword which at least has 3 words and more. (Go for long tail keywords)
Minimum searches should be 50. I know people say that searches are too low but don’t worry I also have keywords with 22,200 + monthly searches.
Maximum Keyword competition that I look for was less than 30. (After new update in Long Tail Pro the maximum KC is 40 )
Amazon should have products related to your keywords.
So these are some basic steps which I follow. Actually I learned all this from the above mentioned websites and you can do the same as well. Just start researching and you will find your golden keywords.
Golden keywords are the most valuable keywords online. These are the ones that will convert well and make you money.I call a keyword, golden keyword when I can find these features – Buying Search Intent, Search Volume, Low Competition, and Money potential.
The following terms are considered as ready to purchase terms. To find more buying keywords you can refer to below mentioned prefix and suffix.
Best/Top Rated + Product Type / Name
Cheap + Product Type / Name
Quality + Product Type / Name
Product Name + For Sale / sale
Bargain + Product Type / Name
Best + Product Type / Product Name + Online
Best + Product Type / Product Name + Review
Best + Product Type / Product Name + Year
Buy + Product Type / Product Name
Where Can I Buy + Product Name / Product Type
Product Name + Vs/Or/Compared to + Product Name

If you want to know more about keyword research and buyer keyword combination then refer to the 2 URLs mentioned below.
I would like to add one more point here that everyone has their own keyword research strategy and you will get to know yours only when you start doing it.
Content Writing For Niche Site
So after finding my keywords with the above mentioned combinations, I ordered my writer to start writing articles for my website.
So far I have published 24 Articles + 5 Pillar Articles + 18 Review Articles
I have published 3 kinds of articles so far –
List Kind of article with on an average 12000 words
Review article with at least 800 + words
And my pillar articles have 14000 words at least
So as you can see that I am not compromising on the article length and quality. My plan is to create a site as a niche site but I also actively look out for the scope to make it an authority site if I get a chance.
I am using my keyword in URL, title, H1,h2 ,h3 and image . I am trying to check all the boxes of one page SEO.
I am adding affiliate links as much as I can but I am focusing to add some brand links and other authority sites list as well.
My writers are still writing as I have planned to add at least 100 high quality articles with the combination of list + review articles. Next month I will be doing some roundup post as well with the influencers of this niche so that I can attract some more traffic, links and can give more value to my readers. (For roundup 7 guest post I am using Ninja Outreach)
Note – Follow SILO Structure for your niche site, I follow this and loving the it. I am linking a very latest post from my friend Dom From humanproofdesigns.com.
Created Welcome page and thank you page for opt-ins (I use Thrive Leads for this task)
Wrote email swipes for my email subscribers. (I use GetResponse as my Auto Responder)
Note – I am also using Easyazon on my niche site. I read some negative comments about this plugin but as of now I am loving easyazon.
Link Building For Niche Site
There are tons of good guides available out there on link building for niche sites. One thing I would like to tell you is that if you are not building links for your amazon niche site then you are killing your site.
But as my site is just 2 months old so I do not want to build links now, at least for another 1-2 months . As of now I am commenting on niche blogs (Comment love enabled), did some good directory submissions and ordered a fiver gig for PR release.
I am assuming that my site is still in Google sand box and so I followed Matt’s guide Reduce Sandbox Length by Timing your Backlinks. Matt knows his stuff and thanks to him that he wrote pretty straight forward and to the point guide on his blog. Follow Matt’s guide if you feel that your site is still in the sand box.
As you can I see I have put some good efforts on my site and it is just a 2 month old site so I am expecting much traffic after some time. But after my guest post and PBNs there is going to be more traffic for sure.
I would like to add here that I am also focusing to build some branding and followership on Twitter and Pinterest. Next time I will show you my Pinterest traffic too.
I do not have much to talk about traffic at the moment but in my next case study I think I will have something good in hand to share with you.
Amazon Earning Shot
Here is the best one. I have seen people not making any money for months but my niche site started making money from the very first month.
And I know once a site starts making money, you can expect to grow it gradually.
Amazon Niche Site Reputation
100’s of my keywords are ranking under 100 and I don’t expect more because I haven’t created any authority links for my niche site. I am sure I’ll see some more improvement in the future when I send some more high quality links.
Ahref shows that I am getting traffic for 2.2K keywords.
As of now let me show you my ranking stats –
Niche Site Keyword Ranking
This is very important section. This is going to tell us that we are doing it right or not ? I think I am on right track and have to do what I am doing.
So as you can see that the rankings are already coming slow and will come fast when I send some more high quality links.
I am sure when next time Ill update you with my ranking you gonna be surprised for sure. Let’s hope for the best.
