Step 1 - Finding Your Niche

So the first thing you need to do before you can start building a site is to decide on what niche you are going to target. This might be easy as you may already own a business or you might have clients who need more leads. 

If your niche is not already picked out for  you then some things you need to consider include:

  • Does the search have Commercial Intent? – are there ads on the first page
  • Is the Search Volume high or is it a high value service or item?
  • Is there a number of businesses offering the service?
  • How competitive is it and what is your SEO skill level?

Check out the videos below to see how I pick a niche and the check how competitive it is so I know whether it is worth going after.

Step 2 - Domain And Hosting

You might already have your domain name and hosting account but if not then the following will help you.

Domain Name: Picking your domain name will depend on what you are planning. If you are building a Brand then you will need to buy fresh domains using your brand name. If you are going for the more Exact or Partial Match Domains (EMD/PMD) then you might be able to find an expired one on expireddomains.net and use it. The majority of local niche expired domains will be fine and you should be ok, but be aware some may have penalties and will never rank.

To buy an expired or new domain I always use Namecheap

Hosting: With Magic Page Plugin you get free hosting so simply sign up at magicpagehost.com and use the coupon code that you received when you bought MPP. Watch the 3 videos at the bottom of the page for how to set up your hosting and install WordPress.

Plugins: Once you have WordPress installed you need to install the Magic age plugin and a few others. Plugins I use include:

  • Magic Page Plugin
  • Classic Editor
  • Elementor
  • Formidable Forms
  • Ithemes Security

Once you have the Magic Page Plugin Installed you can pick from one of the Free Templates and use it to build your basic pages.
