Niche Content Sites Are Powerful – VERY Powerful!

Niche Content Sites Are Powerful – VERY Powerful!

By on Mar 14, 2014 in Blog, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Are you wondering “What are Niche Content Sites”? You have probably heard it, and it couldn’t be truer today. “Content Is King”… and that isn’t going to change anytime soon. As long as there is the internet, this tried and true strategy will be important. The internet is basically a collection of content that is interconnected.   So you would be crazy to not build your niche site based on great content. Let me ask you this: Why do people even go on line?   You probably know the answer, and that is INFORMATION!    It may be entertaining information, engaging information, educating information… Whatever it is, it’s for information.   So knowing that, I want you to take a look at your website right now. If you aren’t in front of it, close your eyes and think about your site. How much engaging and informative content do you have on your site? If you don’t have much, you probably aren’t getting the results you were expecting from your site. Am I right?   If you are smart enough to realize you need to focus on a niche, like the rest of The Niche Agent fans have, then you will begin to understand the importance of having a niche content site for your real estate niche. Your success online (and even in general) will be greatly increased by the quality of content you create and share with your niche.   Not sold yet? Here are 3 critical reasons you should be focused on creating a niche content site:     1) Google LOVES Them   Unless you have been living under a rock (unless your niche is cave homes) you have probably realized how important it is to be ranked well with Google, and other top search engines. Google LOVES good content. As the developers of Google have gotten smarter and cracked down on people abusing unethical SEO tactics, they have put more and more of an emphasis on quality content.   The more ***HIGH QUALITY*** content you have, the greater the chances of you being ranked well on the search engines. The more pages you have the higher chance of getting exposure.   Quality and relative content is key. Don’t forget...
