Niche: Parents / Kids Tablets

This niche website takes a parents curiosity and solves it by steering them in the right direction by making recommendations based on certain criteria.

The site is segmented into different age brackets to make it easy for parents to search for the appropriate information. I think this is a great idea because parents these days have limited time so they want to find what they are looking for very quick.

What Makes this Site Awesome

  • Content is well written
  • Lots of images
  • Steers readers in the right direction

This is what you would call a ‘Hair on Fire’ niche as it addresses something that parents need quickly so they don’t have to give up their phones to their children.

The Kids Tablets with Wifi site earns income with straight affiliate links that direct readers to Amazon to make their purchase.  Most of the affiliate links on the site are from reviews for specific brands.

Although this site is simple in it’s design, the layout and navigation is great as it attracts and directs it’s audience in the right area. Readers can see product reviews based on experience, brand and riding style. This means that it can attract a variety of readers based on this criteria.

Another great feature of each review is it gives the reader a chance to leave their own review of the product. This is powered by the review plugins this is being used.

What Makes this Site Awesome

  • Reviews are in-depth
  • Uses a review plugin which has rich snippets enabled

I really like this site for it’s simple layout and and easy navigation. There is no fluff within the content and has a great infographic image which can be easily shared within social media.

How The Site Makes Money

Primarily the site’s earning are from Amazon using their affiliate program Amazon Associates. But the site was recently sold on Flippa which is a marketplace for buying and selling websites for $5,275.
