It’s been a while since I posted my original low competition niche site ideas post and I figured it was time for some more!
The only thing I asked before is that if you use any of these keywords and need hosting, consider using HostGator. It’s no extra cost to you and helps me out a bit. You can actually save 25% when you use coupon code EASYKEYWORDS at checkout.
I should also note that if you plan on adding a niche site to your portfolio and are going to use your existing sites to help build links to the new site, it’s best to get a separate hosting account. Google has recently picked up on people boosting their own sites by including a “sniffer” in their algorithm that dings sites on the same hosting IP linking to each other.
What does this mean? If you plan on doing a niche site, go all in and spend the $5 or so a month to get a separate HostGator account for the new site. Remember EASYKEYWORDS saves you 25%.
Ok, onto the keywords. First of all, I use Long Tail Pro to quickly and easily find awesome keywords that have high search volume and low competition. The keywords you see below were found by me in about 15 minutes of searching. Each of them, with a little work, can turn into a nice money-making site.
Long Tail Pro makes finding keywords a breeze. Pretty much every time I have an idea for a blog post, I spend 10-15 minutes in LTP doing some light keyword research. Countless times, I have modified the wording to avoid going after an impossible-to-rank-for keyword. I definitely recommend checking it out today.
Ok, below are the keywords. I’m not going to lay it all out for you, because I think it’s fairly clear how each site idea would make money. Ones revolving around products could make money on Amazon and through other affiliate programs. Relationship based words can make a killing on the extremely high CPC dating affiliate sites. These methods are all in addition to AdSense, which is always an idea for passive income.
I have pasted these as an image, so as to not increase any competition for these keywords.
There you go!
I really think there are some great niches there. Take the stroller keyword for example. Double strollers average about $150 on Amazon, so you’re looking at about $8-$10 per sale depending on your commission level. Those commissions can add up quickly!
Remember, it’s a good idea to separate the hosting plans (in addition to Google Analytics/Webmaster Tools/AdSense) if you’re going to be linking to your niche sites with your other sites.
