In this article, I will describe 7 benefits of building niche blogs.
A “niche” refers to a targeted market with profit potential that is not saturated with competitors. The whole idea is to realize the benefits of building niche blogs and then find the niche markets out there and start building.
Niche Blogs are essentially niche websites that are alive!
That’s because your blog will grow as you continue to publish posts or pages regularly to your blog. In contrast, many niche websites are seldom modified or updated after they are created.
Blogs are designed to publish and update contents easily once you have them set up, configured and running.
Once you get the hang of it, it’s a matter of getting into that habit of writing blog posts and pages and publishing them regularly.
They are either FREE or cost very little to set up.
You can create your blogs easily by visiting blogger.com or wordpress.org and taking time to study and learn the “how-to”.
You can make money with your niche blogs in many ways, such as:
– Publishing third-party ads in your blogs (eg. Google Adsense pubishing)
– Recommending affiliate products and services in your blogs (eg. Amazon)
Unlike websites, blogs are interactive. Visitors, or blog readers, are usually allowed to post comments for a blog post (or article) to the blog owner.
This ‘dialog’ helps to build rapport and relationship between the blog owner and his visitors or members.
Since blogs are usually updated regularly via blog posts and pages, blogs will rank higher in search engines as compared to websites. In contrast, you have to do a lot of tweaking to a niche website through Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques.
Search engines will visit your blogs more regularly as you blog more regularly.
Thus, you can also place links of your other websites to get them indexed quickly by the search engines.
A blog’s syndication function is its most powerful benefit!
You can syndicate the contents of your blog by allowing other website publishers to publish your feed (or channel) on their sites. This helps to bring more traffic to your blogs as the visitors of these sites subscribe to your feed via web-based or desktop newsreaders.
So, with the above benefits, doesn’t it make a lot of sense to start building niche blogs as quickly as possible?
