Niche site - small project

It's been a long time since I posted the last time. I want to reactivate this blog to trace a small project I want to do for the next 11 weeks. Another blog just did a little challenge building a new niche site from scratch. I'll try and do the same and write down my thoughts and progress here.

So the challenge to build this niche site starts today and ends on 8th of September. I'll do a small write-up every week (whenever possible on Monday).

First step is to select a niche and possible affiliate products. In my case I choose "Smoothie" as a niche. Now you might say that is not really a niche more of a pretty broad keyword but I'm targeting german traffic. I checked with Google Keyword Planer and it gets around 45k searches per month and it seems like it's still possible to get a good google ranking for the keyword. I also found a possible product on Superclix affiliate network which I can promote.

I created a first site on google sites and will create some articles and recipe sites there. I plan to include pictures as often as possible to gain traffic via image searches too. I linked the site with my google analytics account and we'll see how the traffic will develop.

Let's see how much money I can generate in those 11 weeks ... and as you might have noticed I'm trying to do so without investing a single cent. All will be done using free services from Google and other free sites.
