My Niche Site for NSD 2.0

I’ve added my niche site to the Niche Site Duel Leaderboard.  If you want to look me up in the leaderboard my username in there is lafredet.  Regarding they keywords for the niche I’ve chosen, I’m quite happy with the metrics. My main niche keywords have 12,100 exact, local monthly searches and a fairly positive competition matrix in both Long Tail Pro and Market Samurai. I was also able to come up with quite a few long tail keywords for articles.

Lastly, I managed to purchase an exact match domain name.  That’s where I am sitting at the moment and here’s what’s next on my task list.

Build the Niche Site

Before I can do too much more I have to build the site.  I’ll be using WordPress just like most people, I think. I still haven’t found a theme for the site, but before I can do that I feel like I have to determine the type of site I’ll be building.  Will it be a traditional blog?  Will it be more of an informational site with various sections and sub-content within each of those sections?  I’m still not sure yet.  I keep flipping back and forth between the 2 layout structures :-(

Writing Articles

The big task!  Once I’ve actually got a site to work with I’ll have to come up with the content for all those long tail keywords I found.  This feels like it’s going to be quite difficult, since I’ll have to do quite a bit of research for each article.  It’ll definitely be a time-consuming task.  I’d really be interested in hearing whether or not other people are outsourcing their content writing.  Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know.


I know this is a ways away, but it is something that is always in the back of my mind.  At the moment, I’m not really sure how I’m going to monetize it beyond AdSense.  I’m just going to let that bubble around in my head while I work on the site and the content – hopefully some bright ideas will pop in there.

    Hi Lyle, I stumbled on your blog and noticed there hadn’t been too many updates of late. Are you still trying to live the dream? I hope you haven’t given up. I’m sure there are many of us out here that would like to keep track of how you are going.

    Best of luck anyway,
