If you’re into making money online, I’m sure you’ve been pimped a lot of ebooks, e-courses and other resources that claim to make you tons of money within a short time. If you have actually bought or subscribed to some of the resources mentioned above, I’m sure that you’d discover that some advice actually worked wonders while the rest are utter junk.
As they say, the best way to teach someone is to show them real working examples. This is exactly what I’m going to show you.
I stumbled upon How to Build Gaming Computers. After browsing through the web site, I’m pretty sure that it is one of the best niche online income site that I can showcase to HTNet visitors. Mind you’ I do not own the web site nor do I have a vested interest in it. It’s systematically built and I’m sure that with similar implementation, you could have your own niche online income site.
Listed below are the reasons why I am recommending this web site as a good example for those who want to start their own niche online income site.
1) Clearly defined niche
How to Build Gaming Computers pretty much described its intention in the title itself. It is attempting to teach you how to build a gaming computer. In case you missed it, the web site is dedicated in helping visitors build a computer specifically for game playing purposes.
One of the reasons I find this web site useful is that it targets a very specific section of the market; the DIY gamer. If you’re not into computer hardware, the latest games typically require high-end hardware to run smoothly.
High end hardware are expensive. Therefore, the AdSense ads in this niche typically have a high CPC price; which means publishers get higher income per click. Additionally, the owner of How to Build Gaming Computers also uses affiliate links to promote products that he recommends in the content.
How to Build Gaming Computers also strictly sticks to its chosen niche. It doesn’t fuzz its contents with other products that are unrelated to building gaming computers.
2) Good site structure
Although the presentation of How to Build Gaming Computers is very plain to say the least, it does a hell of a good job of maintaining a complete internal linking structure. Every page is interlinked with one another, making PageRank juice flow nicely among them.
So good is How to Build Gaming Computers‘s internal linking system, Google even awarded them with supplemental sitelinks results.
There are theories that sitelinks are rewarded only to high search traffic web sites. However, from its Alexa ranking, I’m not convinced that this is the case; this is because How to Build Gaming Computers‘s Alexa rankings are lower than HTNet’s.
Therefore, I can only attribute this to the How to Build Gaming Computers‘s exceptional internal linking structure.
3) Requires minimal maintenance
From what I can tell How to Build Gaming Computers looks like it’s not running on some fancy CMS; it’s just a collection of a few static but templated HTML files.
This might look like a disadvantage from a content management perspective. However, I doubt that this would pose much problems. How to Build Gaming Computers is clearly not built for interactivity. It is obviously constructed as an online income generating tool.
By strictly sticking to this objective, the author of How to Build Gaming Computers has significantly removed the biggest distraction for a niche online income site: messing with user submitted content.
By not opting to use a CMS, the author has also saved significant time learning to use such a tool. Quite often, employing the use of a CMS to simplify the process of creating a niche online income site has a learning curve penalty associated with it. There are also configuration and presentation kinks that may need sorting out.
As you can see, creating a niche online income site doesn’t require much technical skills. Frankly, you’ll only need a free web page editor to get started. What you do need though, is a carefully selected niche that is not only profitable, but won’t cause you to stray into too many sub-niches.
A thoughtfully designed niche online income site could potentially give you a decent income. The wonderful thing about it is that it essentially runs on auto-pilot most of the time. However, you need to invest a significant amount of time on the pre-launch phase; identifying a niche that’s both profitable and sustainable. You’ll also need to have a significant amount of content available upon launching.
I hope that this mini-review How to Build Gaming Computers gave you some useful ideas on how to create successful niche online income sites of your own.
