If you find I have used word RELEVANT very often, then believe importance of focusing on your Niche. Your search placement will improve in time, as you add content that is wanted by your readers.
Best Affiliate Products, as a niche keyword phrase is not very large. Replace Products with Programs, and competition is fierce, with up to 230,000 web pages found. But my niche keyword has a reasonable size, under 600 in fact. As a result of this, and fact that useful content pages keep getting added, has resulted in excellent Search results on Google,Yahoo and MSN.
I am proud to say that for search term "best affiliate products" for Best Affiliate Products home page is currently ranked as # 1 on Google, Yahoo and MSN
The reason: good content!
I also have other pages in top 10 and top 30. If your search results come in higher than 30, then chances of getting noticed are very slim.
Is that enough proof to convince you that content is not just important, but crucial to your success.
Which brings us to next point regarding ideal Niche size of a successful site. Size, in this case, means number of web site pages you find when you do a search on Google. In my opinion and that of many experts, an ideal size niche should be from 500 to 10,000 search results. These smaller sized niches offer good potential income, and you could do well with a site competing in this size niche.
However, having more than one Niche Market assures you flexibility and protection against one site losing steam, and also offers income growth potential that is unequalled in online business world.
Before I get carried away on this topic, I better leave it to a future article.
