You may have noticed that the Google Search Console gives you a link to a new version. Well! This new version is great for at least one thing: it actually tells you about your excluded pages, not only a link to them but the reason why they decided to exclude said pages from their index. This is super practical in order to be able to fix your pages quickly. Before there was no such information about why some pages would not make it and it was 100% guesswork to apply fixes. Since you did not even know which page, on a large website, there was close to no way to know what was happening. Period. Continue reading “The New Google Search Console”
The Importance of Accessibility of a Website
In order to increase your reach, keeping accessibility in mind is a good idea.
Accessibility is a way to offer people with a disability access to your website. There are mainly two to consider in this area:
- Blind People
- Deaf People
There are other disabilities that also affect the content on a website, but they are generally less likely to impact your specific Niche Website. Continue reading “The Importance of Accessibility of a Website”
SEO: No Categories & Tags. Why?!
(Important Note: This is an advance topic, please make sure to get your website ready before you delve in this topic and enhance your website even further.)
If you trust me, just jump to Completely Getting Rid of the Categories & Tags on a WordPress Niche Website and follow the steps to remove your categories and tags. If you need strong proofs for why, read the whole post. There are two main points if you want to cut to the chase: Your Readers Don’t Care and How Do Categories & Tags Do in Search Engines?
What Are Categories & Tags
Whenever you work with WordPress, it offers you to:
- Categorize your pages
- Add tags to your pages
In general you would create a small number of categories. One category represents what the article as a whole talks about. For example, for this website I could have created: Continue reading “SEO: No Categories & Tags. Why?!”
Niche Websites for Sale!
One way some people are making big money is by building a viable business, such as a Niche Website, and then selling it. The following should help you understand what to look for before selling or buying a Niche Website. Once you’ve done it 2 or 3 times, you’ll have a good feel for it and know exactly what to do. If you’ve been in business for only a little bit and are not sure how to proceed, this post helps you understand the various points to look at when contemplating a Niche Website transfer.
Note that when you are a beginner, you may want to first create your own website. You may have the money to purchase an existing website, but know that you may run into various problems that you would avoid, were you to create a new Niche Website from scratch. That being said, having a website with existing traffic and good content is not a bad decision to make. Creating your own website, though, may be helpful to you as a valuable learning experience.

SEO: 5 Black Hat Practices to Avoid
When it comes to getting more traffic to a website, many have worked in ways that trump the Search Engine Robots. Unfortunately for them, those robots are becoming more and more intelligent and as a result prevent them from getting any traffic to their website. Continue reading “SEO: 5 Black Hat Practices to Avoid”
SEO: Optimize Your Niche Website Pages
One thing that Google helps you with is to optimize your website. Some of the optimizations that they ask you to do are not all good ideas, especially placing your CSS at the bottom of your page. If you do that, your page will appear broken until the CSS loads and I think that’s not a desirable effect (although if your page looked like the background only until the CSS loads, it would probably be okay.)

SEO: Swear and Negative Words Can Hurt Your Niche Website Ranking
There are more and more reports about Google not sending as much traffic (if any) to pages that include swear words and also that are rather negative (i.e. a long rant will get you nowhere.)
Since you are building a Niche Website, you should not have to worry about such, although if you do product reviews, think about how to talk about a product that’s not so good in a non-derogatory way*. Don’t insult the manufacturer or make fun of them. Unless you’re already big and have time on your hands to create such pages, just avoid that sort of pages altogether. If you just can’t talk about a product in a positive way, don’t talk about it. Period.
* Actually, Amazon.com also doesn’t like derogatory reviews. If for some reasons they decide to check your website closely, they could shut down your account. For them, all products are good products. It makes sense since they want to maximize their sales. Products that are not so good won’t sell much anyway and will automatically disappear.

Getting Products for Sale Through Shopify & Amazon.com
I’m writing this post because Shopify is offering me, as an Affiliate, the possibility to win a $2,500 prize and any chance I have to place my Shopify link on my website, I have to take, right? Right?
Now, really, I think there is a great new program that Shopify offers, which makes sense if you are an Amazon Affiliate and wanted to also sell your own products. Continue reading “Getting Products for Sale Through Shopify & Amazon.com”
Success Requires Sacrifices
Whoever wants to build a business has to think about how that’s going to work with the other aspects of their lives. I think that to a certain extent these sacrifices apply to Niche Websites owners, at least for a while.
Have you listened to an Internet Marketer Video or Webinar? Or read one of their e-Books? Did they talk about how hard their life was when they got started? In many cases, they were poor, had to go to a sad job, or just lost their job after 10 years of working hard for that employer… And then they finally found out how to make it work for them and made a ton of money online. Some are just starting and they may not yet be that rich… But some, like Frank Kern, made it to the top, for sure. So it does happen. In case of Frank, he talks about how he lived in that small apartment and could barely feed himself. Continue reading “Success Requires Sacrifices”
