In my post about my May goals, I mentioned that one of my goals was to explore online niche markets such as the niche of the best kinect games.
To do this, I'm creating a bunch of mini-websites on a couple of different publishing platforms, then linking them together to form a network of related sites. For example, here are some of the Squidoo sites (aka "lenses") that I've created:
Games Compatible With Kinect
Best Kinect Fitness Games
Best Kinect Dancing Games
And here are some of the HubPages sites (aka "hubs") that I've created:
Should I Get a Kinect?
Xbox Motion Sensor Controller
Xbox Kinect Requirements
The two sites are slightly different, so I use them to target slightly different types of keyword phrases. For example, HubPages is more article-based, so I use it to create sites that require mostly text. Squidoo is more module-based, so I use it to create sites in which I want to spotlight various items.
Going forward, I will continue to create sites on both Squidoo and HubPages, and perhaps branch out to other platforms. And I hope to see a return on my investment of time!
