How to Build Your Own Niche Blog EmpirePosted by Mert Erkal on Dec 20, 2009 in Make Money with Blogs | 4 comments
It’s been almost one month since I posted on my blog. I feel a bit guilty because of this. Have I told you before that since last summer I offer SEO and Social Media consultancy services? Frankly speaking I did not expect these two tasks to consume most of my time when beginning. On the other hand, I also did not expect to gain so much experience in social media, search engine optimization, and e-commerce in such a short period. That is why I do not regret. Anyway, this is just another story. Today I would like to tell you more about another experience I gained about blogging during this period;how to non-stop launch various niche blogs and regularly post content without actually writing anything. Sounds great, huh? Here we go…
I guess I mentioned Expert WordPress a lot of times. Even if you are a dummy blogger, you can easily install a WordPress blog in just about 5 mins with these free automated blog installer. The good thing is when you install a WP blog with Expert WordPress, it also installs necessary plugins and sets a nice looking theme (not the best, but good enough!). It is a huge time saver if you are planning to launch various niche blogs. You may also upgrade to premium versions of Expert WordPress and get some extra features, various nice-looking themes, etc.
Last month while checking my hostgator account I discovered that I had so many domain names that I was not using. I thought Expert WordPress could be an easy solution, therefore I started installing WordPress on these blogs with Expert WordPress. Here are some of the blogs I installed WordPress in a few hours with Expert WordPress:
While desperately thinking about how to update these blogs regularly, I discovered WP Robot plugin. With WP Robot you can create targeted blog posts on any topic without writing anything. It is a powerful and easy to use autoblog plugin for WordPress weblogs allowing you to turn your blog on complete auto-pilot and drip-feed it with fresh content in intervals you specify. And the best part: The posts created will be targeted to any keyword you enter and any topic you could ever think of.
At this stage I had to analyze the pros and cons of using such a plugin. Because the posts in above mentioned blogs would not be original if I started using these blogs. I also knew that Google was not as harsh as it was before on duplicate content. It took my whole weekend to decide whether I should post on my own or use WP Robot. It seemed impossible for me to allocate time for writing content for these blogs, and I decided to install WP Robot.
I did not expect to gain first Adsense income from these blogs just three days after I installed WP Robot. The good thing about the plugin is that you can have 20 active keywords in the basic version and 50 keywords in the advanced of WP Robot simultaneously. As a human you can never ever compete such a robust content machine. You can even adjust the post period, such as “every 3 hours”.
Original and good quality content is still a major advantage in terms of SE rankings. However, the new version of Google, namely “Google Caffeine”, will also take post frequency into consideration. Simply the more you post, the better your ranking will be. Also, WP Robot pulls articles from articlesbase.com and sooperarticles.com based on your keywords. Both article directories are full of good quality articles split into thousands of different categories. You can easily find an article even if you are writing about “bed breakfast inns”.
All in all, if you are looking for an easy solution to have various niche blogs and automate content production, follow these easy steps:
- Check Google Adwords Keyword tool and Google Insights For Search to discover potential niche areas
- Based on your analysis on above site, find domain names that have high number of searches, and grab them.
- Install WordPress on these domains with Expert WordPress. You may upgrade to premium version of Expert WordPress to if you need more functionality and good-looking WP themes.
- Expert WordPress comes with All in One SEO pack plugin. You need to adjust the plugin. You can refer to Google Adwords Keyword tool and Google Insights for Search when inserting your keywords.
- Define your categories well. You may also define most popular search phrases as your categories as well.
- Install WP Robot and set it up.
- That’s it!
