Pat started setting up his niche site for his niche site duel.

He used WordPress hosted by his favorite hosting company including four plugins:

  • The All in One SEO Pack allows to optimize the site for search engines (SEO) e.g. by setting page titles, descriptions and keywords.
  • Google XML Sitemaps generates sitemaps which are provided to all “major” search engines for their indexing process.
  • Syon Policy provided templates for legal privacy policies … but is not available anymore via the WordPress repository …
  • The Google Analyticator provides an interface to Google Analytics to track what’s going on.

As theme, he used one available for free …

Concerning monetization he contacted (will contact?) the site owners of online courses for his niche whether affiliate programs are available. For now (back then) he used Google AdSense.

He did (will) write the content for his niche site himself and came up with a list of questions, concerns and topics he wanted (wants) to write about …

He also presented a new tool to investigate keyword questions, which does not seem to exist any more in 2014 …

Smart Passive Income #246 – Recap Webinar

Pat recaps his experience from his first webinar.

  • Pat liked the tool/service he used -> GoToWebinar … note it’s an affiliate link 😉
  • back then (June 2010) … GoToWebinar … was not that awesome for Macs (it is by now)
  • … not everybody who registers, does actually participate … to maximize the number of participants, send reminders, define a fixed time for your webinar (including time zone), don’t let them know that there will be replays (should you plan to run replays) …
  • make sure your your audio is perfect (note telephone quality is NOT perfect!) …
  • limit the time of the webinar (3 hours is bad, 1 hour might still be bad, be short and concise)…
  • present the webinar in advance to a friend …
  • prepare a printout/handout in advance …
  • involve your participants …
  • expect problems …
  • have fun!

Smart Passive Income #188 to #190 – Affiliate Link & Spam & Domain Names

Following the same scheme as before, Pat places a little bit of personal information (he is still moving and cannot see another can of paint …), and “by the way” places another affiliate link … with an additional goody – a free ebook …

… he is complaining about spam mails … well yes, there are spam filters to cope with that, instead of whining …

… he advises on choosing the perfect domain name:

  • use your own server space, instead of free sites (well, that’s not actually about domain names?) … could it be to just place a little affiliate link again 😉
  • use sensible keywords
  • don’t use numbers
  • don’t use confusing or easily misspelled words
  • don’t use trademarks, you don’t own
