You’ve done some market research, created a blog and announced it to the world through Web 2.0 sites and social bookmarking techniques. But, are you getting any traffic?

Before you spend too much time on your niche, you want to make sure you’ve got enough traffic coming to your blog. One gage to test your niche potential is your results after you’ve had 200 unique visitors. If you have not had 200 visitors, look to where you are ranked in Google for both broad match (keyword phrase without quotes) and phrase match (keyword phrase within quotes). It may be that you are not ranked high enough in the search engines to receive at least 200 visitors yet.

If you’ve had 200 unique visitors, check Google analytics to determine how long it took. Next, determine if you sold anything. If so, you’re on the right track. If not, swap in a new affiliate product. The ultimate goal is to get 200 visitors a day and convert at least one of those visitors.

By the way, if you happen to be number one in broad match and you’re not getting traffic, you may want to try something different like target a new keyword phrase.

Once you’ve analyzed your results to date, don’t spin your wheels. Determine whether to move forward with your chosen niche or abandoned it and select a new one.
