make money online niche challenge

A lot of bloggers are making money from their niche sites and this made me to accept the Niche challenge when Omosowonder from contacted me on Facebook that we should do a niche challenge. Apparently he was impressed with Tung Tran of niche site (find the keyword and site after sharing) which was making a hefty sum of money before he sold it on Flippa for a whopping $10,000.00!

On that same note, he decided that we should go for the same keyword (keyword available after sharing) and I accepted. Oscar from also want to join the Niche challenge and we will be sharing our progress – am still waiting for Oscar keyword and we are set to go…

We will be sharing our progress as stated above as well as every step on how we are going to rank this niche site. I won’t be buying any SEO for this site (at least for the first 2 months), but I have my own little method of building whitehat links to the site. You can see my site in the diagram below and also am currently not ranking in the top 100. 😀
I will be using ranktracker to check my keywords ranking. you can see my site url as well as my current ranking by sharing it with your friends..

Keywords and the search using google keyword planner

How much will I spent on this site?

I will have around 25 articles for the site which will be about 500+ words. The articles will cost about $70

Bought the domain $2+ at godaddy with a coupon code I found on the internet, I already have hosting with servinio which cost around $1 per month. (Although it cost more than a dollar, I have about 4 sites on the hosting plan and pay $4 monthly)

Total money I will invest in this project is $80, but if am to write the content myself, it will be less than $5.

How Am I going to monetize the site?

The site will be 100% monetized with Amazon products and possible some CPA on fitness. Amazon has product on almost every niche you can think of and am sure whatever niche you are in, you can add amazon links to it.

What you are going to learn from this Niche challenge?

Well, if you are still starting out, you will learn how to build a niche site from scratch without having to investing a single dime. (the money you will invest will be on domain and hosting). Also, I will share my SEO method of ranking this site. Although it is a simple SEO tips that is known to a lot of top bloggers already. However, if you are new to blogging, you will learn how to build a site and rank it from scratch.

Keywords: learn how to use the new google keyword planner here
The keywords are not going to be easy, but am very positive that in the next 3 months, one of our blog will rank in the top 5 and then I will say this Niche challenge is a success.

Am very sure that if I can rank for this keywords. My site will be making more than $500 monthly.


After achieving this, I might decide to flip this site.
On my next post, i will share the theme and plugins am using on this site, also how I will make the site to rank in google as well as other search engine. If the site refused to rank in 3 months time, then this is a dead case challenge!
