Never put all your virtual eggs in one digital basket….

*Please note* This was originally written for another site in September 2013 – but the message still holds true today so sharing it on this site for you all…

For anyone that makes niche sites you will know that there are certain niches that pay well and convert real good… one of these with quite a lot of dedicated networks and offers is the Health niche.

It can be a pretty cut-throat area if you get into some of the more competitive parts of the niche but as with most big niches there are so many small parts making up the whole that if you find that awesome keyword or killer sub niche you really can earn big from this area.

Several of my sites are in this field and they do well, and new stuff comes out all the time which you can jump on… but that isn’t the point of this post.

Like I say, this niche can be very profitable and there is one particular site (not mine unfortunately!) that did it VERY well, focusing on a lot of buyer keywords and loads of products on the one site, very much an authority, and (I expect as I have no way of knowing for sure) earning some big money from the offers it promotes.

Want this sort of thing sent straight to your inbox? Just add your email at the bottom of the page!

But… just this week it seems that the entire site has fallen out of the Google Index… this doesn’t mean the site has gone, it just means as far as Google is concerned it doesn’t exist any more… and as much as we hate to be a slave to the Big G it’s just TOO big to ignore when it comes to getting traffic to your offers so this must have hurt…

I’m sure they are still getting traffic from the other search engines, they may have adverts they are paying for out there as well, so it won’t be dead in the water, plus I am sure someone with that sort of site has more than one…┬ábut they will have taken a major hit for sure.

This isn’t to scare you, or to start some silly rumour about Google being out to get all affiliates, plus no-one apart from the owner (and maybe not even them!) will have the full story as to what happened but it does smack this point home…

– the same thing happened to me in 2011 and I have built it back up from nothing to be full time again today, but it isn’t fun when you realise it has all just gone…

So make sure you don’t have all your faith in one site, one client, one method… diversify and then if something like this happens to you then, sure, you’ll be pissed off, but you’ll be able to carry on and see what didn’t get affected and make more of that…

So don’t put all your virtual eggs in one digital basket… ’cause if you drop it… you could be making nothing more than digital omelettes for a while…

Have an awesome day people!
