Dynamics of a Winning Niche Review Site

by Zac Johnson on March 25, 2013 · 1 comment

There are billions of web sites on the internet and millions of new sites that go live daily. Everything from personal web sites, online stores, blogs and people coming up with new ideas and concepts all the time.

One of the best ways to build a web site or blog and try to make a business out of it is to create a niche review site. The concept of a niche review site is exactly what it sounds like… which is focusing in on a specific niche topic and reviewing whatever is popular within that niche.

The web hosting and online gaming space are two niches that have become very popular for having review based web sites. Since web hosting clients and online casinos are always looking for new customers, one of the best ways to compare the benefits of the top sites is to create a review site and put them up against each other head to head.

Other potential markets for you to create a niche site are in:

  • weight loss
  • mobile apps
  • amazon products
  • wordpress themes
  • credit cards

As you can see, you can really take the niche review site concept and apply it to any niche. It’s always a good idea to make sure you have enough products and services to compare before starting a site and that you also have a way to monetize your traffic once they hit your site.

To give you a better understanding of what a review site may look like, take a look at The UK’s Home of Live Roulette Gaming, which is a site that compares the top roulette based gaming sites on the internet.

The first thing you will notice is that the site has a great design and all of the content blends together really nicely. The most important and effective part of the site is the top portion that lists the referring sites, which are the best places to play games online. You will also notice how they compare each of the sites based on their bonus payouts, user ratings and the software being used to run the site.

When creating a niche site of your own, it’s going to be important for you to do some research before hand and see what the top sites or products are in your niche that you can write about. Once you know these topics, you can then compare them in the Google Keyword Tool results to see how many people are searching for these terms and the level of competition you might have for ranking on them as well.

Going back to the example we have above, you will see that they site is listing reviews for a wide range of sites. You will see that we placed each of the site names within Google Keyword Tool and pulled up a report which you can see below.

You can easily do the same thing for any niche that you might be interested in building a review site for. When creating your niche review site, be sure to plan ahead and think about what you are going to base your content around before buying a domain name and setting up web hosting. This will make the process much easier on you and allow you to visually grow out your site and it’s content without needing to put out any upfront money, then trying to figure out the plan for your site.

Great post. Very well explained. Should try my hands on niche review site. If it is hosting, we could make affiliate income. In other niches generally, how would you monetize ?
