The amount of good information online when it comes to making money online should be an encouragement. This isn’t just relegated to YouTube. There are many fantastic podcasts on niche website investing, building, and SEO that makes the best information out there available.
I live and breathe website investing, and podcasts are one way I divulge a ton of information during workouts or car rides. I’ve followed the podcasts listed below for many years now. The content and production quality are top-notch.
Let’s get into it!
Best Podcasts for Niche Website Investing That I Recommend
There are many great podcasts on self-employment, making money, and investing, but these are the best when it comes to focusing on niche websites and online income.
The well-known and respected website owned by Spencer Haws also has a very active and impressive podcast. Available across multiple platforms, including from YouTube and the website itself, most interviews from the Niche Pursuits podcast focus on getting into the details of site building, SEO, and making money online.
Spencer built his own major online business with niche websites that he built from scratch. He has bought, sold, and built many more niche sites since then while also diving into online software.
The guests come from a wide array of backgrounds and successful experiences with niche sites but they all have one thing in common: they are some of the top names in their field…or the absolute best you haven’t heard of. These different perspectives give a wealth of actionable information that I’m always excited to listen to.

Doug Cunnington Show
The Doug Cunnington Show has been a major name among the niche websites and makes money online podcasts for some time now. With well over 260 episodes and counting, this is one of the heavyweights in the niche.
Doug Cunnington was working as an SEO and online project manager for a company while building some Amazon niche sites on the side.

The Fat Stacks podcast has over 120 episodes and counting and is the podcast of a name most readers in this niche will quickly become familiar with: Jon Dykstra. Creator of the Fat Stacks course he is a true example of practicing what he preaches, and showing that no matter what else changes, creating great SEO content targeted at low competition keywords continues to work.
Jon started with niche sites all the way back in 2012 and while he comes back to hammering on good research, publish good content, and repeat, he continues to look for ways to make this classic model even more effective.
Topics range from driving social traffic consistently to add to Google search traffic, using article clusters to rank well in Google, becoming more productive, and repurposing content. This is a podcast less about interviews and more about deep diving very specific topics in the niche website building and investing field.

The Opportunity Podcast by Empire Flippers
Empire Flippers is one of the largest and most trusted brokers of niche websites. They also have a very impressive business podcast. Many of these podcasts focus on topics of use to both builders and investors. Empire Flippers are all about the business and investment side of things.
Want to know how to scale content production? Scouting and buying of profitable niche sites or your FBA business? Finding an edge over the competition when scaling up a site pre or post-sale?
Those are the types of topics that rarely get covered, and I find their episodes on these very topics extremely well done.
For individuals heavy into site flipping, or who are looking to move from creating profitable niche sites slowly to becoming more of a business, this is a podcast that will offer plenty of great information to help.

Buying Online Businesses
With over 120 episodes in the catalog, the name of this podcast explains it all. This isn’t the podcast for tips on getting the first 1,000 visitors or touching up WordPress plugins. Important topics, but the focus of the Buying Online Businesses Podcast is on the buying, selling, and flipping of online businesses of all kinds.
This podcast is the brainchild of Jaryd Krause who went a bit unconventional in his route. He didn’t start with building an online business from scratch. He bought one and made it more profitable. Then he did the same with a second business which gave him huge immediate returns.
Jaryd saw a better route through buying versus building. Focusing on those strategies and bringing in guests from different types of online businesses are the two areas where this podcast really focuses.
This works whether you’re gathering online businesses and niches sites to create passive income or looking to improve a site for flipping. Great podcast for thinking on a large scale and long-term in effective ways.

Quality Podcasts That Shut Down

The Domain Magnate Show (Shut Down)
Note: As of 2023, Domain Magnate has shut down. Their podcast is not kept up to date. -Mushfiq

That type of successful track record online is incredibly rare, and that experience shows in the quality of the Domain Magnate Show podcast. As well as the quality of the guests they bring on for episodes.
