The first time I heard of niche websites and authority websites concepts was when I earned money with affiliate marketing many years ago. At that time, I & many other publishers earned $ 1000 / month with only one site as affiliate for Amazon. In this blog, I will show you some niche websites examples & authority websites examples.
Simply said, Niche websites is a small niche site built & developed in a process from year to year and generating sustainable profits. It is like a growing business, and if it grows, it will become an authority site.
Authority Site is a Niche site that has been developed on a larger scale and within a certain amount of time, exactly with its “authority” name.
So who do business & make money online should choose the niche site / authority site to develop and what should be noted? I will start first by show you some niche site & authority site examples.
To make it easier to use, I will show you some examples.
Katom is a niche site example in cooking and kitchen equipment.
You can see that the niche site hits a market that seemed small, but the demand is extremely large. And this website was built up to make money with niches usually for:
- Business if there are products / services
- Making money with affiliate marketing without products / services
- Making money in any way by developing website: Shorten links, adsense, …
Similar to Niche site, but the authority site will be a larger site. It is developed on a relatively broad theme.
Such authority site for health, sports, hunting, fashion, beauty, …
For example :
Smarthome is a niche site example about home facilities.
Smartertravel is is a niche site example about tourism:
Authority site vs Nichesite:
Which form is more difficult?
The key difference between the nichesite & authority site is: Nichesite develops a small niche with promoting a mainstream product group, and the authority site is a huge market.
In terms of difficulty-ease, of course a small niche is easier, both in understanding knowledge and implementing content. However, in the long term, a big market will be extremely profitable.
Niche site can also be said to be a “mini model” of authority sites. That is, a authority site can be developed from a rising nichesite.
Once you have a Niche generated income, you can develop it wider, share more knowledge, more categories (But must be on the same market), after a time it will become a authority site.
Thus, its authority site is a bit “heavy” and “overly” compared to newcomers in many respects: Knowledge, time, resources & especially capital for the site. However, it brings good income so it attracts many business people & MMO to learn to deploy.
I know a lot of people with income of $ 5000 / month or more with this form. Of course passive.
If you want to get started, I still recommend building a website about a small niche first (Nichesite), then developing the following authority site. Note to name the website or domain to name the brand name, not named after the small niche.
Advantage & potential when making money with Authority site
Google Ads, Facebook Ads or other types of Ads are more expensive and account problems occur constantly. And the marketing trend is still Omni channel.
Nichesite & Authority Site is an “inevitable” trend for anyone online. Here are the main reasons why this website building is always a sustainable way for anyone.
If you have enthusiasm, any Nicheite or authority site will grow through this month, the more traffic you have, the more customers you will have.
Simply, if there is quality content that incorporates good SEO plans, many important keywords appear in the top Google, which will attract more visitors every day.
As such, the higher the number of hits, the more customers will buy your product (Of course, there must be a keyword research step from the beginning).
Resell sites at high prices
When you have developed your site for a while and generate profits. If you want to sell to collect a capital department as another site. You can sell it for x10, x20 or more compared to the monthly profit.
Take a look at the websites that are sold on Flippa, you can see there are a lot of examples ofAuthority sites that are sold at super-large prices, from $500k to millions of dollars.
The explanation is quite simple. Many individuals, teams or companies have great resources and financial resources, they hunt & buy niche site, site authority for continued development & optimization.
They find built-in sites that have a lot of content, have income, and implement many methods to increase their profit per month quickly.
No need to create your own products
If you have a product / service to do business, developing nichesite or site authority is extremely convenient.
But you can even bring in good returns if you follow another direction: Affiliate marketing. This form is super popular in the world.
You just need to promote products to others to bring about profits. As for customer care, shipping or supporting product buyers, you don’t need to care.

Enhance personal experience
To complete an authority site, you have to go through a lot of different steps, such as making websites, researching keywords, building content, presenting website layouts, SEO keywords, optimizing profits, …
If you are really passionate and serious about your work, your marketing skills, business experience or affiliate marketing will increase rapidly every day.
Make use of Adsense or PPC Network
If you build websites with good traffic, in addition to affiliate marketing, Google Adsense or other PPC Networks is also a good way to get more money to support the site.
Especially international sites, advertising clicks will bring you very good revenue.
It is not necessary to place Google Adsense ads, any PPC Network gives you better revenue per click, you just choose that ad network.
Because there are so many niche networks created, those niche content sites will bring in better returns, which can cost up to a few dollars per click for competitive niche.
Mantitlement, an example of authority sites that places ads as a second revenue source:
However, you should consider carefully. Because for blogs that host owners who promote high commission products, or self-employed. Placing ads will easily lead to competitors advertising right on your site or it may cause confusion for readers.
Passive income & freedom
What do you think if someday you are comfortable traveling with friends or coffee with your partner, because your site or authority site is an automated customer search engine.
A lot of my friends works remotely and travel full time because they own a niche site and the authority site that brings high and stable income.

Passion, technology & Digital Marketing skills.
After reading the above content, I affirm that there are a lot of people who want to find out and start searching for a certain niche, build a nichesite and then develop a authority site.
However, I affirm, only 1 very small percentage can be done. The rest will give up, 3 main reasons are:
- Not enough perseverance, passion to pursue
- Technology skills are too weak
- No knowledge of Digital Marketing
If you feel disgusted when you have to sit at the computer, feel that building a website is something that makes you angry. I recommend you give up your dream of building a nichesite or authority site.
Because you will be in 80% of those who fail with this form.
If you have no passion from the beginning but think about your career, learn to love these jobs.
Failure will come to you not only once, but many times. If there is no passion and love in the work, your will will be broken.
Build 1 website and follow free traffic as a process. You can’t do it for a few months and want it to create a sustainable income for you.
If in the first few months there is income, is it just an “unsustainable” income & partly thanks to luck. In order to get better results, you need to be persistent. But perseverance & seriousness will stem from your passion.
It will be difficult to do everything online when your technology skills are not much. Many people don’t know how to use basic Word or Excel.
While website making requires you to master a higher level of technology. It is not difficult, but it is really troublesome for many people to hear about hosting, server, domain, …
Many people find it difficult to register online accounts. Not to mention this, there must be a lot of touches and other support software.
So if you want to step into this field, it’s a good idea to know how to use the computer fluently, as quickly as possible.
In addition, you need to have the “Self-learn” skill when encountering any operational difficulties, almost all of which are available online, do not depend on anyone.
Knowledge of Digital Marketing.
Creating a website is easy, almost everyone can do it, but how to make the website bring income, bring more customers, not everyone knows how to do.
Marketing 4.0 is no longer simply posting products to hope for some luck. The battle for marketing has no room for people who lack knowledge.
With Nichesite or Authority site, you need to go through 2 main steps:
- Create content: Bring value to the reader
- Content marketing: Turn readers into customers.
Capital & steps for implementation.
If you work in the international market, the Nichesite or Authority Site requires you to have a lot of initial capital (~ $ 500).
In addition to buying hosting, domain names, hiring articles, … you still need a lot of capital to “feed the site” every month. You need more paid tools and services to make it faster for your site to be on top the search engine. When and only if your site gets to the top of the search engines, will you get income.
You can do it faster with a lot of work or effort to invest more articles. The website may begin to bring about the first revenue around the 5th and 6th months.
Once you have the income and your optimization to replicate x2, x3 will become easier. Because basically, you know how to do it right.
Developing Niche or affiliate authority site is long-term, so you don’t need to rush. But if the product / service you are trading has a high profit, you can use Google Ads to promote the process and bring immediate results.
