Niche marketing can be tons of fun and a great way to make affiliate cach if you have a plan in place to drive traffic.
One of the best ways to do this is to set up an authority site based around a niche of interest.
Of course, this may sound difficult, but its really not. All you have to do is have a plan in place that will break up the process into a series of simple steps. Minimal investment will be required, but its well worth it.

For the longest time, I loved to build sites with Adsense. Making money with Adsense was so easy. I would simply purchase a domain name, build a site, add some relevant content, slap some Adsense blocks on there and WHAM! make money with easy clicks.
That being said and done, however, I have been doing some heavy split testing as of late and have ultimately come to the conclusion that Adsense blocks on your site actually damages you business long term.
"What?" You ask. "Adsense damages my business?" You say.
Yep. Sure does…depending on your business model that is. Now, if you’re business model is what mine used to be…building small/lean sites monetized ONLY with Adsense blocks, then there is still some money to be made this way, but make no mistake, this avenue of revenue is drying up, at least for MFA sites. (Yeah, I said "MFA sites".)
It has been said by SEOs that “links trump all” and while this is certainly true, the case can certainly be made that now, “only natural links trump all”.
Recent algorithm updates by Google, particularly the Penguin update is making the job of many SEOs actually easier, because they now no longer have to blast the web with spam links due to the fact that they have essentiall lost their effectiveness.
Personally, I think this is great. That junk was ruining the web. Currently, its ruining social media, but that is another post.
Are You A Link Schemer?
Do you violate any of Google’s link schemes? Do you even know what they are? If you don’t, odds are, you are violating them. If you hire an SEO, odds are they are violating them and putting your site in the “crosshairs”.
Building niche websites is always something I have had tons of fun doing. Thinking back, I remember one of the first niche websites that I built was an Adsense site that queried links to actual PC game demo files.
If you’re not familiar with these, they are basically game demos for PCs that let you play through the first stage of the game (on average).
The site itself was an eye sore. I coded it in straight HTML (which I wasn’t even very good at) and then hotlinked to actual game files sitting on company servers.
I always made sure that the links worked, and I think that was one of the reasons the site did well.
Then, to monitize the site, I just added Adsense blocks to it. Did it make money? Yep. Sure did. I don’t have it anymore, but I wish I did.
