The Main Differences Between a Blog And a Niche Site

By Chris Lee 68 comments

monoflat_icons_199If you read through my blogposts, you’ll notice that sometimes I refer to sites as blogs and sometimes I refer to them as niche sites.

The question I’ve been receiving quite often lately is, “What’s the difference?”

Well, there really isn’t any difference. A blog is a niche site. A niche site can be called a blog. A niche site can also be called an authority site. A blog can also be called an authority site.

Meaning there’s no difference between them besides what you choose to call them.

But for me, there’s a reason why I call some sites blogs and some sites niche sites.

This is purely based on my own way of thinking, but I’m pretty confident that you’re going to agree with my reasons why.

How To Get Powerful Backlinks From Sites That Seem Impossible To Build Links On

By Chris Lee 102 comments

monoflat_icons_124If you’re an SEO, you know that it’s almost impossible to get links on these types of websites:

  • EDU sites
  • Career sites and job boards
  • Government sites
  • Organizations
  • Leagues
  • Associations
  • Websites of big companies and corporations

They usually have massive link profiles, and getting a single link can really affect your site’s search traffic.

But it’s seemingly impossible to consistently get links from these kinds of sites, especially for free.

They have a lot of gatekeepers, there aren’t many link building opportunities, and they are very careful about who they link out to.

Well recently, I’ve been trying out something new, and it’s been working like gangbusters 🙂

And today, I’m going to do a quick write-up to teach you exactly how you can copy it for your own sites.
