SBI Day 4

by Ruth
(Australia)

 

Hi Mr. Potential,

I wonder if you can help me. I’m currently on day 4 on the SBI action guide and I have done a lot of work this week. Ten hours each day.
I have quite a clear plan of what website I want to create – but I’m unsure about my web address and if it is too broad.

The idea is to do with free accommodation whilst travelling. I have been doing House Swaps for over twenty years and in the last four years have been involved in house-siting and couch-surfing. I have lots of tips, ideas and stories to share and feel I have mapped out a pretty good plan.

When I used the Site Info tool today with my keywords I found the huge travel websites and ezine sites came up. I wonder if it will be impossible for me to compete with these site?

Many thanks

Ruth

Answer

Hello Ruth,

Yes, the travelling websites are very competitive, however, they do not focus primarily on your interest. You have a great opportunity to focus and drilldown on your topic and interest in a way that they travelling website do not. Just make sure your keywords are in demand. Make sure you evaluate what information these top competitors are and are not focusing on as it relates to your interest.

Also, as you fine tune your specific main keywords you will find other competitors that are closer to your theme. Keep you the good work and take your time. You are at a major turning point and you should not be in a hurry.

ps. Please, feel free to submit any further questions on my website’s “ask the coach” page or you you can also use the SBI forum, where there are so many others you have experiences they can share with you. You can also click here to get further support for your Site Build It questions.

All The Best!

Hi, Darryl,

Many thanks for your reply. That is very helpful.
I sent you that email in my morning and as I’m in Australia the times are very different. So I had all day to work a few things out and look at keywords do a site info search. This was very enlightening and I feel quite excited with what I found. I also read a post from ‘B’ on the SBI forum which was talking about keywords and site info together – this was really interesting as I found when a did a specific search for the type of travel and holidays I’m focusing on, the competition was quite low and the only other pages were blogs and emags.

So i’ll continue to do my research and make sure I’m on the right track. I haven’t rushed at all – I’ve been working on this for about 6 weeks. I always like time to digest information.

Many thanks again.

Ruth
