I’ve been talking about niche sites off and on on this blog for a few months now. I told you I was in the process of starting up a few niche sites to diversify my income and to learn more about how to successfully run them. I also told you that I would begin sharing my sites with you and also share the details so you can start building niche sites as well.
That time has come.
Niche site keyword research
I’m participating in Pat Flynn’s Niche Site Duel 2.0 (NSD 2.0) along with a few other niche site builders I met on Google Plus in the Niche Site Community Jason Hill and I created. Those of us participating in NSD 2.0 have formed a small group called the Niche League. We’ll be sharing ideas and supporting each other through NSD 2.0 and hopefully beyond. But more on the Niche League later.
Each of the Niche League members is putting together a video showing their keyword research process and how they came up with the niche site idea for NSD 2.0. I worked on mine this week, and uploaded it to my YouTube channel last night. They’ll soon be a website up that will have everyone’s videos, but until then, here’s mine:
Links to the products I mention in this video are below. Most of these are affiliate links, and I hope you won’t mind using them if you’re interested in purchasing any of these great products. These are all products I use and have purchased myself.
- Google Trends – free and not an affiliate link
- Adwords Keyword Tool – free and not an affiliate link
- Market Samurai

Stay tuned, as I’ll be discussing NSD 2.0 more in the coming weeks, including updating you on my Niche Site and writing some articles and doing more videos that will walk you through the whole process of finding and creating great Niche Sites. I also have some niche site gurus lined up that will sharing their expertise here on Side Income Blogging as well!
