I recently asked leading SEO Expert Aaron Wall to write a guest article about "effective SEO / site promotion in the hyper-competitive market of travel websites".

Ironically his advice echoed the purpose of my travel site - to take the Road Less Travelled and use techniques that are obscure, niche and off the beaten track to find a successful space that hadn’t been occupied already...

PS Aaron’s guest article is published at Aaron Walls SEO Advice For Travel SitesI’m interested in hearing from Sphinners who run travel blogs/websitesWhat do you think of Aaron’s advice about "effective SEO / site promotion in the hyper-competitive market of travel websites"?Would you do the same or something different?

With an article so short, it’s hard to tell what advice he’s offering other than "climb into a tiny niche." Is there more to it?

I think that is the best strategy for hyper-niche travel sites...pick a tiny niche. Have seen it work dozens of time, and have seen hundreds of sites fail from going too broad.

A big niche can be divided into smaller niches. Using the desired high ranking keywords while building small niches can make you take over a big niche in the long run.
