How to Find the Best Topic for Your Money Making Website
If you want to create a website in order to have revenue from affiliate marketing and Google AdSense, you must firstly define its subject. The subject determines the target audience of the website. There is no limit to the main theme you may choose for your website, since there is no restriction on the type of products you are able to promote through affiliate marketing. There are three main ways to pick a theme for your website.
– You can choose a topic of your personal interest. You can more easily write articles about a topic that you are already interested in and you have some basic knowledge. You will easily enrich the content of your website, having been personally involved with this topic. Remember that quality and unique content is the most important thing while creating a website.
– You can see what products sell more and offer high responsibilities and then choose the subject for your website that fits best. This means that you should do a research in the Affiliate Networks and see what are the best-selling products with high responsibilities. Then you can build a website related to these products
– You can see what are the keywords that can bring you traffic more "easily" and create a website based on these keywords. This method is more difficult and the use of keyword difficulty tool is necessary (ie seomoz keyword difficulty tool)
However, any topic you choose for your site should meet certain conditions:
– The theme of your website should not be very wide, but be as specific as possible. For example, "diet" is a very general topic "diet with vegetables" is more specific, and "AtkinsDiet" is even more specific.
– The website is good to be informative rather than promotional. It should include interesting material on the selected topic in order to gain the interest of the visitors and provide information that corresponds to their needs. The site should not be full of ads and promotion material. What is proposed, is to have a page in your website named Product Reviews – Product Overview (E-Shop, or Shopping, etc.) and in this section you can promote products that are related to the theme of your website
– The website should cover the subject from all its parts. For example, if your website subject is «alternative energy sources» It is advisable to present articles that cover all the aspects of this theme. The articles published from your website should contain interesting material corresponding to the following questions:
What are alternative energy sources?
What are the pros and cons of using alternative energy sources?
Which of the alternative energy sources are environmentally friendly?
Why should we increase their use?
When did people begin to use alternative energy sources?
Apart from these questions, you should know that one of the main reasons someone is searching for information on the internet is to solve a problem that has appeared. Therefore, you should see what are the potential problems that an average person may have and are related to alternative energy sources.
What alternative energy sources one can use for home or business?
Which alternative energy sources are cheaper?
Is there another form of energy to power my house?
How can I protect the environment by using alternative energy sources?
Can I make my own solar panels for my home and use the energy generated?
What other options do I have for heating in addition to traditional?
Also, you can visit press websites in the world, such as http://www.cnn.com , http://www.reuters.com etc. From there you can see the current affairs and write articles that combine these news with the subject of your website. For example, in the homepage of CNN, there was for a long time, the subject of the economic crisis in Greece. So, if our website topic is "alternative energy sources", you could write articles where you explain how Greece can take advantage of alternative energy sources available, in order to improve its financial situation (eg production of energy from solar panels or wind turbines and export to other countries). Articles related to the current news, easily attract visitors to your website.
