What You Think?
« on: March 10, 2015, 08:12:14 AM »
When I started my Online adventure I found a very good teacher who taught me what is Niche and Niche Market and how to produce a niche website. Under his guidance I develop my first niche website namely, "Stuhrling Watch Review".

I put all my efforts into it from writing to tweaking the tags/keywords read all sort of SEO tricks and tips to increase my Google Adsense earnings which worked in the beginning but after a while the pace of earnings start decreasing and I tried everything but nothing is happening.

I put amazone gadget as well to earn some affiliation commissions but I can't understand what is wrong with me or my contents?. I am working on my site more than 3 years now. My site ranking seems to me (Just ME :D) is good and my several keywords rank my site in google top 10 but.............?

I need guidance from my seniors, please guide me what is wrong with my site? or what I am doing wrong?

Looking for your Replies.

Thanks in advance

Not sure who taught you niche marketing but I would be very wary of using a trademarked name as part of your domain name.  They could easily sue you.

The name of your site is stuhrling watch reviews but you review other brands of watches.  Sends a mix message to me.

I would have had a generic named site which includes the words watchreviews in it vice having a name brand in your domain name.  Its like having a site with the word ebay in it like I did...I got a cease and desist email from their lawyers. (I was getting traffic to my site)

That's just my opinion.

Where to begin?

1) To me this just looks like another who cares built for adsense site. Is anyone *really* going to go there and read any of the "reviews". I doubt it. It just looks spammy to me. There are millions of sites out there just like it. To make things worse I'm greeted by a huge Digital Marketer banner ad right at the top of your site (it's Adsense so it will vary by visitor).

2) Sorry but it's clear English is not your first language. The spelling and grammar is horrendous. I couldn't make it through a paragraph without spazzing out.  ;;:B If you want it to work you'll need someone to proof read it - all of it.  :shocked2:

3) Have to agree with Jerome on the domain. Any time Stuhrling wants to they can pull the rug out from under you. Do you have the funds to defend a copyright/trademark violation lawsuit? They could even get ICANN to take the domain from you and give it to them. It's happened a lot of times in the past. If it was a PR8 site I guarantee you they would. To them it's insignificant I'm sure.

4) There is nothing exciting about the design at all. I would expect a much more elegant and eye-popping design for a review site of high-end anything. I think it would be clear to most that this is simply a Google bait site.

5) 3 years is a LOT of time to invest to get your site to a PR1. You should easily be a 5 or 6 with that much time and that narrow of a focus (although as Jerome notes you review lots more than what the domain suggests). I'd say Google has figured out what your site is and is penalizing it heavily.

6) When the first couple of sentences of one of your posts is "Join the crowd! Watches have become one of the most popular online purchases." - you've lost me. Watches are dieing a horrible and violent death. Don't try to BS me into thinking that they're that popular. I'm sure hamster cages are more "popular" online than watches. I'm a prime watch customer (I'm old enough to remember them well and I can afford to buy pretty much whatever I want) and I haven't owned one for 20 years or more. Cell phone - hello!

Sorry I don't have anything positive to say. I just can't find anything. Tough love.....

Good luck.
