How to Rank in High-Paying YMYL Niches
If you think you're ready to play in the big leagues...
Think you’re ready to throw your hat into the ring and compete in the most lucrative affiliate niches in the world?
If so, this guide is for you.
Competitive niches include things like fitness, credit cards, loans, nutrition, legal advice, etc. If you’re a new SEO then you shouldn’t even consider starting a site in one of these niches. You’ll be competing with the sharks from day one and you have to spend a TON of money to even stand a chance.
I personally only build sites in highly competitive YMYL (Your Money, Your Life) niches because they have the most potential (but also require the most work/expertise).
If you think you have what it takes then read on to learn how to rank a site in one of these high-paying niches.
How to rank a site in a competitive niche
First things first: don’t even bother starting a YMYL site unless you already have years of experience with SEO and have at least five figures available to spend right out of the gate.
Google holds YMYL site owners to MUCH higher standards compared to other niches.
It’s obvious why.
If you give bad health, financial, or legal advice to someone it can potentially DESTROY their life. This makes Google look bad and opens them up to potential liability.
Remember that Google doesn’t care about you or your business. Google only cares about growing their ad revenue. The way they do that is by increasing the number of times people type queries into their search engine. To do this they need to deliver relevant results that keep users coming back for more.
If your site isn’t helping them grow their ad revenue by answering searchers’ queries with relevant info, they aren’t going to reward you with traffic.
In addition to meeting Google’s standards, you also have to beat out the competition. And the competition in these niches is fierce. YMYL niches pay some of the highest affiliate commissions and CPC rates in the world. EVERYONE wants a piece of the YMYL pie.
Here’s how to get it.
