You are reading the third post of my Micro Niche Site Challenge. The first was to find your niche, shows how to build a website with WordPress. How to Creating High-Quality Content Site: Makes Money.
Creating high-quality content is crucial for sites that make money, because all sites that make money must be ranked high in Google and have a good SEO strategy.
I’m going to explain how you structure your content very effectively for your website to rank. There are several criteria and methods that you can use to facilitate the creation of content. This is what all money-making sites have in common: they rank well for their target keywords and get free traffic from search engines.
We will target only one keyword per page. In this way, we guarantee that the pages of our niche site do not compete with each other, but provide complete information on the subject we have chosen. So reading topic How to Creating High-Quality Content Site: Makes Money.
Keyword density on income-generating sites
When I say “target only one keyword”, I mean that the text will contain a specific keyword at a certain density. Keyword density describes how often a keyword is mentioned on a website. For example, if I write 500 words and the keyword appears 5 times, I have a keyword density of 1%.
It is very important to keep an eye on keyword density as Google uses it to measure the relevance of websites. Obviously, if a website contains your keyword, it could provide useful information on the subject and, therefore, Google will take it into account in the ranking.
But please don’t make the mistake and fill the text with keywords! A keyword density of 1% to 3% is what I use on my sites. If you mention your keyword too often, Google will treat the website as spam! Google searches for natural structured texts and these texts do not use specific keywords again and again.
Finding the right balance for keyword density is a secret for all money-making sites, especially for niche sites.
Write for humans!
This brings us to the next point. You don’t write text from niche sites for search engines, you write text for humans! Do you know what all money-making sites have in common? It doesn’t matter if they are monetized with Adsense, offering services or selling products – they bring value to the reader.
To me, this is the hardest part when creating a niche site. You need to achieve a certain keyword density, but you also need to make sure that the text looks natural and provides useful information to the reader.
The reason why your text should be of high quality is pretty obvious. People will leave your site directly when the content on your niche site does not help them. They won’t even click on your ads, but will return directly to the Search Engine Results (SERP) page. Google tracks the time difference between people opening your site from SERP and people leaving your site to SERP.
If everyone leaves your site quickly, this could have negative consequences for your ranking.
Otherwise, when you provide useful information on your niche site, people share your site and recommend it to others. Virality can be a huge boost for your website, so you need to make sure people like your content!
Content Types of Niche Sites
How to Creating High-Quality Content Site: Makes Money. But what specific types of content can you create to fill your niche site, attract search engines, and get your visitors to like your site?
There are many types of content, some are easy to create while others require a lot of preparation. If you check out some of the more popular money-making sites, like Smart Passive Income, Social Triggers or Niche Pursuits, you’ll find a lot of content.
Guides and tutorials
People love how-to guides. and tutorials. And it’s quite human, because guides and tutorials allow people to reach goals without having to think for themselves. This is why guides and tutorials are a great form of content to publish on niche sites.
To publish a successful guide or tutorial, you should be aware of the problem your visitor is facing. Make sure you understand your player’s current situation, as this is the starting point for your tutorial.
You can then go through each step that your reader must follow to follow your guide. Take care of and answer every question that may arise.
Explain the steps in great detail so that people really understand what you want them to do.
Give your guide to people with a level of experience in your field comparable to your reader’s knowledge. It’s a good way to make sure your guide is understandable and that it really takes your reader where you want them to go.
Explaining difficult or diffuse problems is a good way to succeed in your niche site.
This is mainly due to the fact that complex problems are sometimes good targets for niche sites in terms of search volume and competition. People interested in a complex subject are generally very passionate about it and therefore interested in sharing knowledge related to the issue. Almost all of the money-making sites benefit in particular from content sharing, as this is what makes them spread around the world.
When you are able to explain the problem in a way that makes it understandable for people

SEO with WordPress
SEO is the foundation for the success of sites that make money. They all rank high in Google and they all have decent traffic.
To ensure that your niche site has good on-site SEO, you can install the free WordPress SEO plugin by YoaST.
This plugin allows you to analyze your content directly while you write it. It guides you through the most important aspects of site referencing like keyword density, title and description tags, links, images and all the other necessary information.
Don’t worry, it’s very simple to use. Here are some screenshots, showing the analysis of the message you are reading at the moment.
This page shows you the general parameters of the plugin. The box appears directly in the publication editor and updates while you write. You can define the keyword focus, which is the keyword for which your publication should rank. YoaST then analyzes your content, title and meta description. I have hidden the preview of my code snippet and my focus keyword, but the green statistics tell you how often my keyword appears on my page and in the most relevant places for SEO.
If certain conditions are not met, you will see that the small circles turn red. It’s a fairly simple way to measure how well you’ve optimized your content. The sites that earn the most money will have an SEO score like this site, probably even better. Although SEO is only one part (the others are conversion rate, customer targeting, user experience, etc.) of the process, it is quite important.
The Page Analysis tab shows you very detailed information about your page. You see that I have a keyword density of 0.76%, which means that I should try to add the keyword more often. But if I can’t figure out how to add the keyword without making the text difficult to read, I won’t – I write for humans, not for search engines!
This site is the main reason why I like this plugin. You don’t need to remember all of these SEO aspects, the plugin does it for you. At first, I didn’t even know these factors existed. I just installed the YoaST SEO plugin and it showed me everything I needed to take care of.
And now I get over 300 visitors a day to this blog. And probably 60% comes directly from the search engines.
These are the two pages of the YoaST plugin that I use. It has more functions, but I don’t know them currently, so I’ll explain them to you later.
