[Series] Creating a Niche Blog for Affiliate Income

By Ian Fernando

This is going to be a series since I want to kinda watch my growth. I have been heavily expanding my affiliate income via other methods. One of them is to move to the CPS side slowly and see if I can potentially make it profitable. My first month (March) I didn't reach my goal. But it is a learning experience for me

So the I created a blog on a specific niche and I just pump it with affiliate links from Clickbank, ShareaSale, Linkshare, and Amazon. But it is an actual blog whith real unique content. In the next coming days or even weeks, I am going to log what I have been doing with it such as blog plugins, traffic, etc

My first month of creating this niche blog was to just bang out content and it was easy for me to bang out the content since I enjoy what I was doing. I needed to bang some unique content to start ranking within the search engines, Google specifically. Surprisingly I was ranked within 2 days for just 2 days worth of posts.

I use WordPress as my CMS platform which is probably the main reason I got ranked fairly quick. I use wordpress for everything from sales page, blogs, squeeze pages, etc. I do not use standard static HTML or any other cms platform. WordPress is just so verse and simple there is no need for me to use any other platform.

The next thing I needed to get was a theme and I wanted a nice simple blog formatted theme. I searched for a free theme and I found a really good one a particular site. So I threw it up and just customized it a bit. I kept all the colors, I didn't want to spend too much time on colors and adjusting columns, etc. I wanted to find the right theme right away.

I also got a nice logo and image done for the blog as well. It didn't cost much at all and it definitely brought an official feel to the site. I wanted to start giving it a presence online, which will be a post as well.

The next thing I needed to do was to start finding offers, which I will talk about in the next day or so. I also started downloading and researching plugins that I will need to get me ranked higher. A plugin post will come in the next coming days as well.

But this is just the introduction of what I will be talking in the next couple days. I have bought social traffic and contextual, which will be posted in the next couple days as well.

So make sure you are subscribe to the RSS or Twitter to stay up to date to my posts in the next coming days.
