Things Mentioned in the podcast:

Welcome to another master mind podcast of the Niche Site Journal

On this show we document the experience of three guys taking brand new niche sites from idea to profitable businesses. The show includes Dennis, Lior, and Jason as we share our unique processes and insights into the incredible opportunity of building niche websites.

In this episode we chat about, what’s a niche site, how to use video to improve your SEO, when to give up on a niche site and tips on outsourcing article writing.

Adding a few pagesMy last post on my Niche Site experience was almost 3 months ago. A lot has happened since then not relating to the Niche Site.

As many of you know, my wife gave birth to our first child, we ran a successful Kickstarter campaign, and printed our first comic book.

In other words, we have been insanely busy.

This is why I hope to master niche sites. The opportunity to work on my art and spend time with my family with out worrying about money would be a dream come true. That is why I am trying to make this work and build a passive income portfolio.

Make sure you know why you want to make passive income through Niche Sites. It makes the long hours and lonely nights more bearable.

Thank You to

A crazy week as usual.  It was hard to find the time to put in my 16 hours this week.  My wife is due any day, the comic book (Madman of Magic) my wife and me are working on, my laptop died, family is planning to come to see the baby, I signed a new contract for putting on animation workshops for the local schools, and …. Well that is all I remember I can remember, but I did find 16 hours to work on the Niche Site.

Still in the Middle of my BackLinking Strategy

I have figured out that attempting a backlinking strategy for the first time is very time consuming.

This tool makes it a little easier (it is free):

Some Notes on article directories:

These are links for my back linking strategy.  If you don’t know what that is, please read my post from Week 5: Back links and Article Marketing

Sites that no longer work or cost money

  • Article Dashboard now charges money.
  • Article Blast said my account hasn’t been approved yet.  It has been a few weeks and I still haven’t heard anything.  I did have to submit examples of work, which is cool, but you think they would have contacted me by now.
  • Aricle Alley said the email provider (gmail) is blocked.  This is weird to block google email accounts, but I am not opening or using one of my website accounts for a backlinking strategy.
  • Buzzle said external links are no longer allowed in Articles.  I signed up and was about to post when I read this.
  • The Free Library does not accept new articles at this time.
  • iSnare says you can post an article and have your website on the article, but if you want it to link back (be clickable) then it costs money.  I put one article on there just for the heck of it since I went through the trouble of opening an account, but I will not be posting any more.

Sites I did use

We are still puttering along with the niche site and the back linking strategy.  To be honest, I will be glad when it is all over.  I guess this is why everyone says choose something you love.  While I don’t mind doing articles on pregnancy and pregnant woman’s health, it is hard for me to get excited about it.

The only thing keeping me working on this niche site is:

  • I want to see if the strategies for niche sites work.
  • I enjoy learning about putting up niche sites.
  • I feel that my Jason Loves Life readers (you) hold me accountable to see this through to the end.

Find out “What’s my Ranking”

I did a search on YouTube fore “How to find google keyword ranking” and who’s video should appear?  That’s right, Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income (the dude really is everywhere).

I have Market Samurai, so I am using that software to figure it out.

Here is the video:

Week # 7 (seven) Results

Still working on Back linking

It has been a rough week trying to figure out the marketing for our niche site.  There is a lot of information and I spent more time watching videos and reading articles then I really should have.  There is a lot of information out there and a lot of people contradicting each other.

I have decided to stick with system Pat Flynn talks about in his article, but with some adjustments.

My back linking strategy is to create original articles; spin those articles; and submit the spin versions to article directors, use some on Web 2.0 properties, and blog sites with all of those articles having links to my niche site.  Then I have to link to these spun articles through article submission software and using social bookmarking.

From Jason and Jeremy’s article on Internet Business Mastery ( I tried to diversify the “words” that contain my link to my site.
