Newbie Niche Site Month #2: The Results

As of yesterday, the second Newbie Niche Site Month was over.  I sent out over 40 domains over the course of the past month or so, and hopefully many of you were able to take advantage of it.  Even if you did nothing with the domain ideas, hopefully it sparked some ideas in your mind of product-based niche sites that you can build.

I know people spend a lot of time talking about niche sites online, but as I’ve pointed out before, there may be some of you who have never created one before and don’t know the first thing about where to start.  That’s perfectly okay.  The one thing that people rarely do is hand you actual ideas and URLs for you to run with, but that’s what I’ve done here.  Now, I know it would be better to teach you how to find domains rather than just give them to you, but all of that information is readily available through a simple Google search (and I wrote an article on it awhile back).

As I did last time, I wanted to recap exactly what Newbie Niche Site Month consisted of for those who didn’t receive the e-mails (and yes, I’ll list out all of the domains I sent out).

This is basically what Newbie Niche Site Month was:

  • Each week, for 4 weeks, I shared with those on my newsletter list, a list of exact keyword domains.  Having an exact match keyword domain is extremely powerful when it comes to ranking for that keyword in Google’s search engine results.
  • The reason I targeted this special series toward “newbies” is because these keywords generally receive 1,000-2,000 exact searches per month.  This is still plenty of traffic to create a profitable niche site, but those of you who are already experienced may have your sights set a bit higher.
  • All of these URLs were related to products (specifically, products that can be found on Amazon.com), consistent with the Amazon niche site challenge I’ve undertaken.  I know it’s been awhile, but I’m finally seeing some nice results with my Amazon sites, which I will be sharing in my next income report.

Here Are The Domains!

More than likely, these domains have all been registered, but I’m showing you them here just in case you missed out on the e-mails and are curious what kinds of domains I researched and sent out.  Keep in mind, all I did was research the availability of each domain and search traffic of each keyword.  I’m leaving it up to you to take it the rest of the way and properly research the competition, etc.

Some Random Closing Notes

  • Although it did take me awhile to research all of these keywords and domains, it hardly takes any time at all to find one.  You can do it without spending a dime – find your ideas by browsing Amazon.com and use Google’s Keyword Tool to find out about the keyword’s traffic.  Use your preferred domain registrar or a site like Domain Whiz (free) to check a domain’s availability.
  • Before you actually develop a site, I definitely recommend doing a bit of research on your keyword’s competition.  You can do this by evaluating the sites on page 1 of Google, but I prefer to use Market Samurai to help with that (free trial).
  • There are still thousands of unregistered domains out there with lots of income potential, just waiting for you to find them.  I said it last time I wrote a recap post, and I’ll say it again:  Every day, profitable domains are invented.  Every time a new product is released, you could potentially create a review site based around that product.  Keyword searches are always evolving, so therefore, good domain availability is too.

What do you think?  Let me know what you thought about this e-mail series, if you were one of the people who followed it.  Thanks!

  1. Eric,
    These are some truly great domains! When I got your email last night, I was tempted to register some but then I felt bad because these are intended for newbies and I didn’t want to take away from someone getting into this great industry. :-) I think you’re driving some serious value here and I’m sure have helped out a lot of people!
    Best,
    Ian

  2. Hey Eric,

    Great range of domains. I need to be careful not to register domains anymore :)

    You can get hooked very fast!

    Keep it going!

  3. Hey! This was a lot of fun. I’m pretty new to this whole thing, so I bought a website each week (weeks 2-4, actually). Thanks for doing this. I’ll let you know how the sites I got from the newbie niche site month are performing once they get off the ground. :)

  4. Not trying to be an ass, but dude, wtf?? I’m on your mailing list and didn’t receive a single email, maybe it’s because I’m just on the Feedburner list? Anyhow, where do I sign up to get these next time around?

    [Reply]

    Eric G. Reply:

    Hey Tipjar, my guess is that you are signed up for Feedburner e-mail updates, which will only send you blog posts as they are published. It’s independent of my newsletter.

    To make sure you’re on the actual newsletter list, you can sign up in any of the opt-in forms found on my blog, including the one in the right sidebar. Let me know if you have any issues with it!

  6. Great post Eric … lots of food for thought here. I went on a domain frenzy couple years back too … it’s good to have an end goal in mind prior to “wasting” money.

    Eric G. Reply:

    Agreed – though I also think that if you do the proper research and determine that a domain is worth buying, it still may be a good idea to buy it now even if you don’t currently have the time to invest in it. You never know when a good domain will be snatched up, and for $7-8, it’s worth the risk/investment.

  8. Those domains look really great, there’s some some true potential there. I’m just lacking time these weeks, i haven’t taken a break in months.
    Maybe you’ll do something like this again in the future, i’d like to take advantage.

  10. I am not sure if it makes sense to go after the small niche sites anymore. I would readily admit that I have had more than my fair share of such sites, but of late I am beginning to think that a better way might be to build huge sites that cover a lot of subjects.

  13. And how did the newbies do? From my experience, people don’t put too much effort in developing things they get for free.
    Working to find that niche guarantees higher chances of success.
    But it was a nice gesture from you anyway.

  14. Few months ago i had no idea what an exact match keyword domain can do. Till i bought one and it went on #1 without even pacing any content on it. It’s true it was a really low competition niche, but come on, no content, ranking just with the keyword domain? Not something i see every day.
