So Many Great Pet Blog Ideas So Little Time
That brings us to the end of our look into some great Micro Niche ideas for your pet website. There’s no doubt that I’ve missed tons of potential Micro Niche ideas.
Every species or breed you could build a website around a specific issue that that breeder species might have.
The thing you need to be careful of when choosing a Micro Niche is not to get too small.
Yes, you want to get small with your Niche to avoid a lot of the bigger competition, but you don’t want to go too small that you sap all the traffic potential of your blog.
And keep in mind. That micromanage describes your content, not your website. So if you start a blog in the dog clothes micro-niche, that is simply a category on your website as long as you plan ahead and don’t pigeonhole your domain name.
You can always expand out into the larger Niche whenever you need to. And even into the large industry niches if you put enough time and content into a.
Just because you started as a dog clothing blog doesn’t mean that one day you can be a full-fledged pet blog that deals with Health Care for pets and pet food and any other aspect of owning a pet that you can think of.
That’s going to take a lot of work and it’s probably going to take a team of writers to build that much content.
It’s always possible and it’s something that you might keep in mind when deciding on what to name your website and how to build the content around your website.
I always suggest building your content in categories so that when you do expand you have everything neat and tidy and ready to go when you start to build for bigger things.
The way to think of it these days is each category can be its own Micro Niche and you build each one of these micro-niches as large as you want and then move on to another related micro-niche.
That is all that I have for you today. I hope you’ve enjoyed the read and I hope you found some useful information here.
