15 “Google-Proof” Ways to Create a Quality Niche Site [Niche Affiliate Income #2]

Niche Affiliate Income

Niche Affiliate IncomeWelcome to the 2nd part of the Niche Affiliate Income Series.

Last time I answered seven questions about building niche sites.  This post will help you learn How to Stop Pandas from Playing in Your Sandbox.

As we discussed, this income model relies heavily on search engine optimization (SEO). Specifically we’re going to target Google.

Unfortunately Google constantly changes what they like and don’t like about websites. They even do frequent updates to their algorithm that weed out what they consider to be low-quality web properties.

They have updates and penalties with cutesy names like:

  • Google Slap
  • Florida Update
  • Panda Update
  • The Sandbox

I won’t go into detail about what each means.  Suffice to say, Google works hard to ensure they give the best search experience to the end user.

What does that mean to you?

You need to build websites that Google loves!

It’s important to know what they want.  That way you can prevent any sort of penalty to your niche sites.

I’ve done an exhaustive amount of research into the Google Panda update.  Plus I’ve even looked at how Google Adwords comes up with their quality score.  (In my opinion, I think these two are related.)

Bottom line is you need an “authority blogger” mentality with niche sites.  Your first concern is to create a quality web experience for the end user.  Only then should you worry about monetizing a niche site.

During my research I found fifteen ways to make Google like your site:
