  1. Hi Jon
    I was still reading this post. It’s a fantastic post and really inspiring!. I have a question for you, as mention, you started the niche site in February 2014 and it was 2 years ago. Any thought in term of competition in 2016 and onward for someone to just started the niche site like parenting, health, nutrient, sports, etc. etc?

    BTW, keep up the great work!


    1. Hey Imer,

      The more competition the better. In 2014 the niche I jumped into was super competitive. There are full magazines and TV channels dedicated to it. I like big competition because that means there’s a huge audience.

      If you’re asking from an SEO perspective, I think a lot of competition is good too because there are soooooo many long tail keywords you can go after. The larger the audience, the more long tail keywords to get started with.

      1. Awesome Jon. Thanks for the respond. Yes, I’m asking from an SEO perspective and the reason I’m asking is because of I’ve planned to build an authority niche site. BTW, thanks for the advice.

  2. Great Post! I have been blogging for a year now and reaching around 6k pageviews per month. Your blog post is quite interesting and enlightening, i realize that i still miss something to be able to scale to bigger pageviews numbers. Would love it if you can come to visit my blog and leave a comment or feedback. Keep up the great work!
