Alright, so we need to change the design. I'm cool with that. Is wordpress really the way to go vs a cms like joomla?

I think I've got a decent microniche with a fair amount of searches and a great paying area.

Re: My website ownership experience

I've no idea about CMS to be honest someone else here will know better than me. I don't think it should matter than much but the WP ones are more popular (popular = more resources for you).

Which CMS you choose generally isnt affected by what you want your site to look like. Wordpress is a fantastic way to start a small site that isnt generating revenue yet IMO. There are full fledged businesses that run on Wordpress as well but it will be heavily modified at that point.

Re: My website ownership experience

Here's a pretty good series of pie charts that says a lot about the different cms's.

http://trends.builtwith.com/cms

Basically, wordpress is easiest to use, has lots of built in features, readily available themes and plugins and therefore has the lion's share of the whole market.

But there are clearly reasons that highly trafficked and more advanced sites use Drupal and to a lesser extent Joomla (v. v. little personal experience with these, but the trend seems pretty clear).

Re: My website ownership experience

Anyone have any thoughts on the new TKA 2.0 methodology? They encourage going for more difficult niches, and targeting long tails so that you have a chance vs. the bigger players. A few I found that seem to satisfy their criteria for advertiser competition are forex, online business, and travel. However, when I looked into the long tails for online business, even those seem extremely competitive to rank for. Any thoughts?

Re: My website ownership experience

Hey,

I'm looking for a writer (preferrably from England, due to time zones), who knows the poker world and can rewrite some of our content and also write newsposts etc. We are a website with lots of potential so this might be a pretty good opportunity. Please let me know if you would like this job or know anyone who would like to be part of this. Just shoot me a PM!

Re: My website ownership experience

Hey that's a great article really enjoyed that one. Our title is 'Make Games with Construct - Scirra.com', would you suggest we try longer truncated ones? I was under the assumption smaller precise titles would carry more impact

Re: My website ownership experience

Ebay is in a unique position as one of the most well linked sites on the web they are ranking those terms because of their immense overall domain authority. I think targeting highly relevant term is often ideal for a website like yours but it varies, I was able to apply it to one domain with good results thus far but I also didnt have great highly targeted terms I could get either with that domain.
