So two years ago I asked google what it wants and google said authority sites. Which is great for you as jet packs give you a great advantage(I wish there was something like it when I first started out) I have been in the muscle building field for over 2 years now and although there is a lot of money to be made in this niche you need to have a target audiance muscle building or buliding muscle is to broad a term and you will be up against the big boys who google loves. What I hit on was targeting a age group so I could follow everything bodybuilding.com or muscle and strength do but target my articles and videos at that age group.People need to trust you before they buy from you or bookmark you. After two years and only the last year making money the one thing I have learnt is that google loves authority sites google loves seeing you on social media;(reason being if you are in it just for money you will get fed up posting and pinning after a while) it shows you are serious. The reason I talk about google a lot is that unless you have a lot of money you need to stay on googles side to make money. One little tip to get good backlinks which google will reward you is if you are not on pinterest join it, when you write a article put a high quality photo in there then either pin it on to a popular board or create your own and google will rank it high in there searches. At the moment pinterest is a do follow site and google loves it. I have about 30 articles on pinterest and I get a lot of traffic from pinterest and ranked well in google. just be careful to only put high quality photos which relate to the article and do not spam I have over 400 articles but only put 10% on pinterest. Another bit of advcle whatever niche you are in is listen to a lot of webiners there is some great advice for free(just leave before the hard sell) Good luck its hard work but nothing like getting a email from paypal to make you feel better.. Not sure if I can leave my details here but if anyone needs some advive feel free to ask

If you are not on google+ i recommend you join as well. As stated before you are in a good place to learn as there are a lot of good people on here.
The #1 way to do Market Research right now is using social sites, in my opinion. (Other than spending tons of money conducting surveys and running focus groups.)
I didn't say anything about getting traffic.
I am talking about getting conversions.
You do want to use slang words (not vulgar/curse words), if you learn the language you can make that extra connection with your prospects, instead of saying "Stop your cat from scratching furniture" like a robot, you'd say something like "Finally get peace of mind knowing that your little ball-of-fur won't claw your furniture while you sleep".
I agree, building a relationship with your visitors is key, people buy from people not websites, so why not try and talk to them like a friend would in their language, building that connection.
In order to figure out what the problems you need to solve even are, you need to do the research to discover them and so using social sites like say Amazon reviews and forums like the OP will be doing, will help you do just that.
Writing quality content based on problems discussed on top forums and giving solutions to those problems on your site sounds like a good plan, go for it Praveen.
P.S. Praveen, Just test it dude.

Always make me laugh when people say this is the number one way of doing something. The reason 97% of people fail online is so called experts telling them this is the number one way to do something. I have learnt over the 7 years what might have worked in the past might not work in the future. You need to keep your eyes and ears open for new ideas. I have done the above and yes do get traffic but I get more traffic from pinterest. Would I say is the number one way of doing it. No. Try lots of things what works in one niche might not work in another. I get my traffic from lots of different sources I do not have a. NUMBER ONE way and neither should you if you want to succed in business. So ending with when the next guru tells you this is the NUMBER ONE way of doing something ask them how much they are charging. NEVER EVER use slang words you do not no who will be offended buy them. One little thing to add in the fitness field (as this is the niche the question was about) it rare people buy the first time they come to your site. They are looking for infomation about a problem if you can solve that problem then next time they have the same problem they will come back to you. I find a lot of my sales come a week or two after they have visted my site. Help people and the money will follow.

What should be at the heart of every piece of content all of us here produce. Find the problems that people are talking about (using forums and social sites), then write content based on a targeted keyword (to get search engine traffic too).
Of course, good writing like this will take time, so just get started and revise as you go along.

Is this just a high ranke website ?
