Reverse engineer the SERPs for content ideas ⚡

A simple process I've been playing around with to find niche relevant competitors + keywords
Let's say we want to build a cluster around the keyword:

*project management best practices*

Google the term + scrape the top ranking URLs.

Use this if you want:
Now copy each of the domains and add them to Ahrefs Content Gap:
Now filter results:

* Volume: Minimum 100
* KD: Max 20
* Include: add your broad KW (project management in this example)

(☝️ adjust these according to your site/niche/preference)
You now have a list of niche relevant terms.

Go through the list and pick out keywords you can create content around.

Here’s some examples:

Use the terms here to find MORE niche relevant competitors + keywords...

...rinse and repeat until you have a massive content plan.

Niche selection vs analysis paralysis, it's a fine line.

To avoid procrastinating when building content sites, I use a *very* simple checklist before I do anything.
My philosophy for building content sites:

Niche sites are places to experiment + generate additional income. I don't want to spend all my time building, managing or putting all my eggs in one basket.

I want to front load content, get it ranked, revisit + improve.
So based on that, here are the things I look for when deciding to build out a site.

How to find easy to rank keywords (based on domain age)
The premise of this method is simple:

Find young websites ranking for terms you want to rank for.

If a new-ish site with low authority can rank for a KW, so can do too with a more established site (probably).
1. Get URLs

Google a keyword you want to rank for.

Update search settings to show 100 results

Copy all page URLs

AI content + display ads = 💰❓

Is this a profitable way to monetize niche sites? Here are my thoughts on whether AI content get you:

1️⃣ Traffic
2️⃣ Rankings
3️⃣ $$$
I've played around with AI content a little bit. I'm going to highlight ONE page I created with it.

What you need to know:

* published on 26th July
* 1100 words
* low comp keyword in low comp niche
* published on established site
* no links built
1️⃣ Traffic

So far, just that article has gained 278 pageviews. Ok numbers but nothing amazing.

So YES, AI content *can* generate traffic ✅ Image
