Niche Site DUEL Beginning November 1st

Hi everyone!

 

Based on the interest posted in this thread http://yakezie.com/forums/blog…..ite-mahem/

I am formally challenging you to a duel!

 

You can join with a new site only. Here are the rules, mostly based on nichesiteduel.com

 

1) No backlinking or other 'promotion' until the challenge officially begins on November 1st in your local time zone. You can begin putting up content and linking within only.

2) No paid advertising allowed

3) No advertising in the forums (you can link/talk about it on your site though)

 

That's pretty much it. Make sure to install G Analytics as soon as possible. Whoever can get their site ranked in number 1 for their desired keyword the fastest wins.

 

 

Honorable mentions will include

Most Traffic

Most long tail keywords

Most Income

 

Are you in?

I am interested, but I don't know if I have what it takes… meaning, I am starting a niche site, but I can't afford to hire someone to crank out the material needed for the niche site and that means I will be taking my time to put out quality material.

 

I'm taking a slow and steady approach… :)

Just jump right in! I put up some rewritten material from one of my popular posts and I am paying 5 bucks for 2 general articles that I can doctor up.

Check out Fiverr.com. I've used it lots for one of my other sites.

Alighty, I'm in!  I have to think about what to do. 

 

And 20sFinance, dude, I am as cheap as they come.  I won't be hiring anyone either.  So spend the money on a domain and throw it under your current hosting and do it yourself like I will!

 

I'm psyched!!!  Oh and everyone else, you're going down.

I'm digging my way out of some serious debt at

Sounds good to me. One last point I forgot to mention. We will be using Scroogle.org to determine the rank unless someone has a better way.

Alright.  Sandy talked me into it.  I'm doing NaNoWriMo too, but I'm still gonna whup her!!!  ;)  Besides, I've got a bit of free time starting in November, so should be able to squeeze this in too.

Another rule suggestion:  keywords have to have at least 1000  global exact searches per month.

 

Otherwise, I could take #1 for "naked elf playing electric guitar in the shower while gnomes throw money" in 2 days.

Well that sounds like an interesting site idea anyway…

I'd join, but only if I can use the site I created just a few weeks ago.  It has exactly 0 visitors, and Latisha is the only one who found it somehow (stalker…).

I'd like to join too.  I was already planning on getting my niche site up in November.

 

Also Beating Broke mentioned doing NaNoWriMo. I'm going to be doing that as well. If there are others here doing it maybe we can start a thread to keep each other accountable.

Pardon the dumb question.  What is NaNoWriMo? 

It's so not fair if you have a site already built!  I have to choose a subject, get the domain, build, etc.  But it's okay.  I'll still win!

Yeah, I'm still working on a subject as well.  Had one, but the closest domain wasn't very close at all, so didn't want to go with it.  Now, I'm back to brainstorming!

 

NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month.  It happens every November.  Basically, you take the month and write 50,000 words of a novel.  There's more to it than that, but that's the basics of it. here's the website http://www.nanowrimo.org

awesome idea.  no way I can be ready in 2 days.  i'll build a niche site but it will take time to design, plan, write …

LIL' SPF (in addition to increased chores + making sure Mrs. SPF has what she needs) is taking a lot of time.  Priorities.
