Hello readers! Welcome to the 37th edition of my niche website update. I want to break from my traditional format for this post to discuss my future intentions with niche site development. After this post, I’ll be relaxing how often I publish these updates, and for good reason. I must confess that since last year, there has been a small leak in my ambition for this project. I have not really had the same ferocity that I previously set forth with my niche site collection. I enjoy thinking them up. I enjoy writing and creating them. I enjoy building them. I really enjoy the revenue. But then, it seems, I hit a wall. I very big brick wall. Throughout 2015 for these niche sites, I noticed month after month that income was … [Read more...] about Niche Website Update 37
Hello and welcome to the November 2015 edition of my niche website income report and progress update. Every month, I detail what actions I’m taking to develop this portfolio of websites and what kinds of revenue and expenses come with it. The goal of these websites is to supplement my regular employment income with multiple streams of passive income; money that I can earn while I’m at work or asleep without me having to interact. This month I’ve been taking some serious steps to close the chapter on one of my biggest niche websites. Not only will the immediate income be great, but I’m also very interested to learn more about how buying/selling websites actually works, and what steps you should be taking as you develop the website to … [Read more...] about Niche Website Income Report 36 – $667 for November 2015
Lately I’ve been wrestling with a decision as to what my next passive income project should be: Should I write another ebook or start another brand new website? Both opportunities present some benefits as well as challenges. I’ve always wanted to be an author and well-respected figure associated with personal finance, and so having yet another ebook in my portfolio can help me with this. But then creating websites is something that has, without a doubt, put money back into my pocket month after month. I’ve been able to do this with some degree of success, and so to add yet another one to my collection would only increase my chances for success even more. Believe me … if I had the time, I would probably take them both on. But I … [Read more...] about Should I Write a New Ebook or Start Another Website?
Hello and welcome to the monthly niche website income report and status update. Blogging has been one of my favorite ways to earn some money on side while I work at a full time job. These niche site updates are my way of sharing with you what’s been going on, what’s been working, and what hasn’t. Ultimately, my goal is to take in as much revenue as possible so that we can achieve financial freedom as quickly as possible. This month I spent almost 100% of my time working with niche site #2 (NS2). I published 7 new pieces of strategic content as well as working on some of things like internal backlinking and site speed which I believe will help rank my content better over the long term. And, I may be making a very BIG decision … [Read more...] about Niche Website Income Report 35 – $661 for October 2015
Welcome to the September edition of our niche website income report and update. Blogging and learning how to steadily earn affiliate income is not only a fun hobby, but it has also become an incredible way for me to supplement our household income. In addition to my investing habits, that extra income has contributed significantly to our financial freedom plan that will one day become a stream of passive income and tool we use to retire early. Like I’m sure it was for most of you, September was a whirlwind of activity with the kids going back to school and my wife going back to work (she’s a teacher). School, of course, also means that sports starts back up, and so most of our weekends have been consumed by soccer and catching back … [Read more...] about Niche Website Income Report 34 – $815 for September 2015
Chances are if you’re blogger, then you’ve probably heard of LongTail Pro and how it can help you do keyword research. But why is that important? How do keywords translate into growing your blog and – ultimately - making more money with it?

Every major SEO marketer I can think of validates this. They all insist choosing good keywords wisely so that it makes everything else you’re going to do easier.
