I have currently have 3 domains and one of those has a few subdomains as spin-off sites.. I realize niche sites are a hard sell overall, but I am trying to figure out the best coarse of action to build an audiance for my websites. And I realize there is no one sure fire solution.
As part of my hosting package through bluehost, Atracta SEO is one of the features and I have been utilizing that as it states it will help build a larger audience. The only thing increasing on most of the sites is the influx of spammers to the forum(s).
Back in the day (about 10-12 years ago) when I launched the first site, there was a pretty good following, due to a number of issues the site ended up offline for a while, and when I was able to get things in order and relaunch the site the original domain was in limbo so I purchase a new, but similar domain name. Once I was able to get the original domain sorted out I linked that to the new hosting account via masking, so when you type in http://www.myoringaldomain.org the address actually shows the new domain. I don't know at this point if it would have been better to have the original domain go to a seperate folder/page and state that the domain has changed with a link to the new domain.
I am trying to figure out a better way to promote my site on limited funds without going the spamming route...
