Case Survival knife
In early 2013, I kicked off with a webinar, what has now become known as Niche Site Project 1. This case study has been one of the most popular series of posts that I have ever done on my blog only rivaled in popularity by the second Niche Site Project here.
I went through the process of finding keywords, picking a domain name (originally BestSurvivalKnifeGuide.com), and building a niche from scratch. And the best part was that I revealed everything!
Today, I want to explain why there has been a gap in the updates and to finally explain what happened to the site. The original purpose of this case study was to make it a valuable learning experience for everyone, and so I plan to reveal everything once again to hopefully help others reading this post.
Even though the site has not worked out exactly as planned, I think its still important to share the trials just as well as the victories. In fact, I’ve shared many of my “failures” in the past including: iPhone App Failure, Failed Attempt at Building a PBN, and Early Mistakes with Long Tail Pro.
As you will see below, the traffic to the site has been pretty low, BUT you will also see some VERY interesting movement over the past couple of days. Enough movement, that I will simply say there is still a ray of hope for the project after everything that has happened.
