Review sites are popular among bloggers. They allow people to take something that they are passionate about or something that they are knowledgeable in and talk to others about it in a detailed way. Few people write review sites simply because they love the topic. Most people do so because they see writing a review site as a way to make money. And that is respectable, especially since most people are trying to find a way to make money online.

A successful review site boils down to being able to write profitable articles that generate revenue via affiliate links. Much of this has to do with writing about topics that people are interested in reading about. With tech reviews, the idea is for the reviewer to position themselves between the individuals selling the tech item and the person buying it. Then the hope is that readers will be encouraged to purchase said piece of technology via an affiliate link that earns the reviewer a small commission. We would like to present a few tips that can help you create a successful tech review site.

1. Choose a Good Web Hosting Provider

What makes a good web hosting provider? It comes down to the three S': security, support, and speed. As your tech blog grows, you need to be able to grow your website to meet the needs of your target audience. Your hosting service needs to be flexible to adjust to demands in service.

Think about it like this, a major phone company drops a new device and your site has exclusive access to review that product before others. For a short period of time your site is going to be inundated with traffic. Once that initial burst dies down, traffic will return to normal. You need a hosting solution based on your needs at the moment.

There are a lot of hosting solutions available. Companies like BlueHost have become the standard for most people looking to start their own websites or blogs. BH can be considered the Costco of web hosting, providing pretty good value for the money.

2. Write about What You Are Passionate about

Your tech review site is going to involve writing a lot about technology. It needs to be something that you enjoy. Your site could be generalized in that you write about all things tech. However, many opt to specialize their site, writing primarily about one niche market.

In order to stay relevant, you are going to need to produce a lot of content. This means that you have to be knowledgeable on the subject so that you can speak about the subject with authority. Or at least you have to have the basic framework needed to do further investigation and then present information in a clear, concise, and accurate way. You don't need to know everything on the subject, but you should have a strong foundation on it.

You may be passionate about a number of tech-related things. If the goal is to make money, you have to make sure that your passions are also shared by others. Pick a topic that people are going to want to read about.

3. Research Your Market

This is a step that many who want to start a tech review site ignore. Reviewing the market is neither fun nor glamorous, but it is a key part of creating a successful review blog.

Some of the things that you will research include forums that people who like the topic you are reviewing visit. You will have to identify what types of advertising are going to be best for your review site. If you want to drive traffic to your site, you are going to have to dig into SEO with the goal of getting a clear picture of the keywords potential readers are going to search in order to find your site.

There are a number of paid tools that you can use. However, there are many free resources that are a good place to start until you get your feet under you. Researching the market will make the difference between a review site that you are writing just for the fun of it and one that you are writing with the goal of growing an extended readership.

4. Position Yourself As a Real Authority

The tech review market is flooded with copy and paste reviews. You read one review only to find scores of other reviews that basically say the exact same thing. How can you set yourself apart as a legitimately authoritative source of information? It has to do with more than simply writing about the latest breakthroughs. You have to show your readers that you are the type of reviewer who gets their hands dirty.

This may include you uploading videos of yourself on boxing, disassembling, and using the technology that you are reviewing. When your reviewers see this, they understand that you are not just copying from another person but that you are a true tech blogger authority.

You as a reviewer, you should have access to the latest in technology. Set yourself apart from the competition by showing your readers breakthroughs before they are available with other sources.

To be an authority, you must associate with authorities. One way that you can do this on your review is by featuring established authorities. If your review has not reached the point where you feel like you can feature expert interviews, you can at least write about people who are leaders in the field. Writing about the latest breakthroughs in technology may attract new people to your review.

You will build authority by producing steady content. Start by writing a number of evergreen blogs/reviews to get your site off the ground. Then you need to publish a consistent number of reviews every week to stay relevant.
