I have built a search engine and directory. The search engine will scoop up anything from the net, but i just want the directory hot have travel or sailing sites on them.
The idea is that it is almost impossible to compete with the larger search engine, so i build a on to target a niche market.
Is this a feasible option, can one go up againt the larger engine and become a destination site for those searches you do on travel etc.
The trouble is i find it all too easy to click into the Google toolbar and type in my request without even thinking about more specialised sites that will cater for a more relevant search. If i do this then i guess millions of other people do it too. So is there any market for niche directories.
How can i promote this? any suggestions welcome.
