We all know that there are niches that have lots of money there like insurance, health and what not but these are extremely competitive. I've been, however, in a bit less competitive niche for a few years now and that is video gaming or just gaming niche. No, this is not poker or casino related stuff.
I have many sites in this niche. In this live case study, I am going to use a brand new site that I just created today! In fact, I just bought domain name and not yet installed Word Press. Site will be a "fan site" about well known franchise. It has 3 games and many DLCs. My monetisation method is like CPA except I won't work for CPA, I will send traffic to a browser game where developers will pay me for each player I sign up. US player is worth $1.75, Denmark and Norway players - $1.7 each, UK - $1.4 and so on ... there are many countries that are worth more than $0.1 per player. The east I will get per player is 1 cent. That is why I love working for them instead of CPA - bigger payment and they accept any country ... even if they pay me 1 cent lol. That browser game is very similar to the game I am going to create a fan site about.
I might add other monetisation methods if I find any ...
OK, my goal is to make $100/day from this site alone within 3-4 months. Lets see if that is possible
There are 100's of keywords to rank for but I am going to focus on 9 keywords and add more keywords as we go along ... Here are Google EKT (External Keyword Tool) searches (exact match):
Keyword 1: 368K
Keyword 2: 165K
Keyword 3: 1000K (yup, 1 million)
Keyword 4: 12.1K
Keyword 5: 28
Keyword 6: 27.1K
Keyword 7: 140
Keyword 8: 60.5K
Keyword 9: 46
I am not checking SERP IQ because I don't give a damn. It's probably low anyway
So, this is perfect because game is really related to the site and people don't have to buy anything ... just try the game out and register if they like. No downloads, nothing ... I hope to make much more money than $100/day from this site but lets focus on making even $50/dy first (although goal is $100/day)
I will be outsourcing everything because I have no time for writing dozens of articles and building links. What I will do is order articles from iwriter.com and just buy link packages. Today's task is to install and configure the wordpress - add custom header/background and what not and then I will start posting a few articles tomorrow. I really hope I will have some article by tomorrow
I will start building linsk next week.
All comments are welcome.
P.S. So far:
