Gourd Site, Painted Gourds

Well, I have a friend, my best friend actually, who steered me to my latest site. My friend's wife won a contest for designing a gourd. I was like, what's a gourd? Well it turns out its like a squash only a little different and if you dry it out, you get a hard shell that can be used for a lot of different stuff.

So my new site is Painted Gourds, but you can find Gourds listed of all different types. Gourd Dippers, Gourd Canteens, Gourd Birdhouses, Martin Gourds, you get the idea. Check it out sometime.

Money Continues to roll

As I've found more niches, the money continues to trickle in. When a domain is new, google gives it extra weight, so for a couple of weeks you rank high for great key words. The newest couple of sites are: Modern Marital Arts: Martial Arts Supplies and Equipment. Paintball Gear, just migrated from a subdomain, and American Idol Season 8 blog and store. Have fun.

New Niche Sites

So my latest sites are about Wall Dots and Digital Slr cameras. Wall dots has already produced pretty well, but the camera site has just been launched so we'll see. I'm pretty skepical as I used a different program, Store Stacker to build it. We'll see how that works, it combines Ebay, clickbank, amazon, and youtube together so I can offer content and product. We'll see.

MSN Webmaster Tools

So I stumbled on a post in the BANS forum about submitting sitemaps to MSN. I had no idea you could so I've done so with a few of my sites to see if traffic from MSN will increase. I found that my cheap used cars website is ranked fairly well, and I migrated my toddler play toys site over from a subdomain to its very own domain at

Update on sites

Well so far I am a few months into my venture into the affiliate web business and so far eBay is king. All of my commisions are through the Build a Niche Store software and I've made over $300 thus far. The pink and brown baby site is doing well and so is the blue and brown bedding site. Both are new so don't have any page rank yet, but I hope that will change. The bedding site is ranking #3 on google for the keyword, so I am very happy with that.

My first site, All Things Active just recieved a page rank of 2. I couldn't believe it. I'll continue to try to add valuable content and see where it goes. It is my first site and has contributed my most consistent traffic to date.

I also experimented with using subdomains to host new sites, I think the verdict is in: It doesn't work. Initially Google will treat the site as independent, but then it gets rolled under the parent domain and gets very little traffic. They haven't recieved any page rank because goolge feels they are just subsites under the main store, so I think I am moving towards buying a domain name for each new site.

Blue and Brown Bedding

Well, I have had quite a bit of success with Pink and Brown Baby, so I decided to try out a Blue and Brown Bedding site. I tried Pink and Brown Bedding but the URL was taken, so we'll see. Hope this "niche" works too.

Using capability of Bans V3

Well, with the introduction of Build a Niche Store V3, I am trying a new method of targeting traffic. I'm going to use the location capability to narrow the ebay results to cities and create city specific stores. At first this was a little beyond my grasp, couldn't really think of why you would want to do that, then it hit me, used cars by city. You only want to see cars near you most of the time, so the next few posts will be centered around my success, or not, of a series of car sites focusing on the major cities of the US. Attempt number 1 Atlanta Used Cars

Just as an update on other things, the traffic to most of my sites is non-existant, other than the first site, All Things Active. So I'm going to start submitting articles and adding some unique content to my other pages to try and start generating traffic, otherwise I am just wasting time. Wish me luck.
