    They often say weight loss and fitness related niches are very competitive. Thus, it really intrigues me, how are you going to compete and perform in this niche? Do you have any strategies for this?

    From what I see, “build muscle at home” is a little bit broad too. Maybe you already have a plan in your mind to narrow it down but you did not document it above. And, i would love to see more on this part =)

      Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking when I was about to create the site. You know, if I start a website that’s titled “Fitness”, then that’s a real broad. As you have asked, “How do you plan to build it?”, by that question alone, it denotes struggle on how to come up with a content. What will happen if I further narrow it down, then the struggle becomes more real coming up with content! So, to me, it’s neither broad or narrow, maybe just in the middle. I hope you realize what I mean with this, that if you narrow it down further, then it becomes harder and harder to come up with content.

    Hi there Gomer,

    Thank you kindly for creating and sharing this article as well as your own entrepreneurial spirit with us all it is appreciated, thanks.

    As a niche site marketer myself, I gotta admit that niche, building muscle at home does have a very nice potential.
    When I start a new site I tend use different metrics in regards to keywords.

    First 100 articles QSR – 50 max!
    Second 100 Articles QSR 75 max!
    Third 100 Articles QSR 100 Max

    (The number of searches I dont care about, no matter how high or low (but has to have traffic!)

    and there after hardly ever consider anything above 100 unless I have to or really like that particular key word. The reason for this method is to help the site rank quickly for easy keywords, build authority with google and yes, to get some early sales (my record was a couple of weeks after starting the site – which yes, was gym related coincidentally speaking!).

      Oh, we’re so privileged you shared to us here your metrics. It is very rare to have someone highly experienced like you share something valuable like that, so thank you so much for that.

      I am aware of the strategy, as Kyle (co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate) has taught us that we should start with a low competition (low QSR) keywords first, and then gradually go up. 

      In my case, perhaps the build muscles at home keywords is the main keywords of the site. The keyword for the whole site, and not for particular blog post or article. Maybe, by the time I start writing articles, then I’d be strict the way you are strict with your metrics.

      Anyway, thanks for sharing. So much value in there.

    I think that keyword research is a really important step. And I really want to learn it thoroughly. However I wonder how long it takes to learn all the stuff about it. People say that it takes months but I wanted to get your opinion. By the way I think of working a couple of hours everyday.

      Thanks for asking. Have you been to Wealthy Affiliate? They teach people keyword research the easy way, and they also provide you with a keyword tool that allows you to research keywords like a pro. They have this tool called Jaaxy. I encourage you to check it out. Once you get the right knowledge, and the right tools, less than an hour a day for keyword research, will do.

  4. Excellent on point overview of all the reasons I chose Wealthy Affiliate and over 1.4 million of other affiliate marketers. It is the most comprehensive training site I have found for the beginner through the advanced online marketers. What you get in the free membership is unheard of, even the cost for the premium membership with all the bells and whistles is the best value ever.

    Glad you narrowed your new niche Coach I know you will do well with that one too.

      While writing this blog post, I remember you. I wondered, how this can help a reader like a woman like you. But then, I realized that it is only with this specific niche blog that you might not benefit directly because it is more on helping young guys develop their muscles and build from home. If I have to help you, I can do it with other blogs that you follow. So, with that realization, I pushed through.

      Thanks for the comment. And thanks for reading.
