Niche Web Site Building (I)

10-08-2014 | Dojo |

I actually run various niche web sites at the moment, but this ‘series’ will detail my work on a web site I have just started few moments ago. I will not provide any details yet, it’s just a travel related web site. For now it’s all you’ll find out 🙂

The plan

Develop an interesting and useful travel related web site that will earn me some passive income from affiliate marketing, banner ads and also Adsense.

What’s been done

  • domain name registered, using my favorite registrar.
  • small cPanel hosting account set up on my reseller account.
  • bought a premium theme for my web site. I am a web designer, so I should probably create my own theme, but I am currently swamped with client work and I’d rather start the web site today and not in few weeks, when I finish the jobs. Will probably make extensive tweaks in the near future or even code my own. So far, it will do the trick.
  • WordPress installed, theme installed, initial setup done.
  • few articles written.

Niche website traffic

… nothing yet 🙂

Niche website costs

… so far: $11 for the domain name, the hosting is free (well, I do have a $24/mo. reseller account, but there are other web sites in my network, so I haven’t purchased a new account), $48 for the premium theme.

TOTAL COSTS: $59 (not counting the hosting).

Niche website income

… as you can guess .. nothing.

Will keep you updated with my progress, time to do some more keyword researching and settings.

    I love this type of article series, noting the growth and success of a recently launched website. Good luck with your new website and hopefully you’ll be able to report a lot of income very soon!

      Thank you 😉
      Let’s hope it will be a success. It’s not easy taking care of the baby, working for my clients, managing the network and adding a new web site. But then .. what is a girl supposed to do anyway 😀

    Oh, fantastic! I love reading about building sites. Did the domain name come with any metrics?
