    Hello forum, I want to share some thoughts about Adsense Micro Niches:

    1. It takes time.
    You have to wait at least 2 months to see your niche going to the first page, please don't think "is just a niche with exactly keyword domain, it should index fast" forget that stuff.

    2. Do not buy .info domains
    I prefer to buy .org instead .com or .net, just because I have see a faster result than .info I have not try other domains but do not buy .info, they sucks.

    3. Link building everyday
    Try to post comments on posts with high PR and approved they work very well.

    4. You never earn clicks if you are not in page 1.
    I have a micro niche in page 2 in rarely earn clicks, but I was in the first page position 10 for just 1 day and got 4 clics = $1.80 Just imagine if I get position 5 on the first page, I will making like $4 USD.

    5. Write blog posts.
    It doesn't matter if they are just 60 words, you have to put content, or Google will not see your page often.

    6. CPC and Searches per month are not stable
    Google Adwords is a good tool, you can even see if your keyword's CPC drop.

    7. All-In-SEO setup
    If you are using this plugin, try to use for putting a description in search results, try to put just a like and include two keywords related to your niche. In your title, just put the keyword that you are working.

    8. Social Media
    Try to use a Fan Page for your page and put some RSS thing, do it with Twitter too, Google loves that your site is in there.

    9. Use tag Read More
    Do not publish full content in your posts, that makes people forget about your Ads, use Read More.

    10. Always check you keyword position
    I'm using Opera to see my keyword position, Firefox just put my site on the first page (that's Google Technology fault).

    These things I learned, good luck. I hope be helpful!:D

    So not true. I rank #13 for some keyword that is very popular and I get adsense clicks daily! I agree, its not much compare to other sites, but never say never.

    If your visitors click on your posts, they are doing pageviews. Google likes when someone wants to read all the content (it must be cool site Google think).

    10. In firefox it mostly because of your cache that google displays your website at page 1.

    If you clean your cache with ccleaner you will see the same results as opera

    Not true. It all depends on the niche. Dunno where you got that 2 month crap from.


    I agree that com, net or org are better than info. However, that doesn´t mean info domains are worthless. A domain isn´t everything - content is. Build nice content and it doesn´t matter if you got a info-domain or a EMD.

    A high PR blog that is spammed to death is nearly useless. I only use those spammed one´s to link my web 2.0´s.

    Once again, it all depends on the niche. I´ve got sites on page two which are getting loads of traffic.

    Content is everything and G like longer high quality posts. Spamming your blog with 60 word posts will not you do any good, especially not since the visitors will not appreciate it. Remember, you are building the site for them, not Google.

    It´s the best tool out there but it still doesn´t mean it´s good. You can never trust those numbers completely, they only give u a rough estimate.
    A title should be descriptive for the visitor and hence, should not just contain the kw.


    BS

    BS again.. why do u use a browser to check your kw position? How about long tail? Use a decent software for this.

    This would be a better list..

    1. Spend time on doing proper KW-research

    2. Write quality content and fill your first page with at least 1000 words.
    Make sure to check kw density in your text and make sure it´s good.

    3. Don´t put up your adsense ads until at least a couple of weeks have passed after your site been indexed.

    4. Make sure to learn what ad positions work best (plenty of guides available)

    5. Make sure your onpage SEO is good.

    6. Learn how to perform proper white hat SEO before you start using Black Hat tactics.

    7. Make sure you don´t forget about long tail kw´s (really part of number 1)

    8. A link is a link is a link and can never hurt you. Everyone who says othervise doesn´t know what they are talking about.

    9. Make sure to follow the adsense guidelines and make sure you check it once in a while to make sure there aren´t any new one´s added.

    To many people come here to BHW whining about getting their adsense account blocked even though it´s really their own fault.

    10. Understand that you, as a beginner, will screw up from time to time. This is normal and remember that trial-and-error is the only way to learn.

    If you would have wrote something like this.. I might have thanked you and even give you rep.

    However.. nice of you to try to contribute though.

    That is just a regurgitation of what's been said on here a million times, and most of it isn't specific enough to help anyone. The OP was offering a few twists, which is important for everyone to make their sites a bit unique.

    It bloody well is important since that is basically "the method" by which you build profitable sites.

    Dunno what twists u are thinking about? Using opera to check your ranking? Claiming that it is a good think to write 60 word blog posts?

    Please inform me. What in OP´s post did you felt was valuable?

    You are right, I'm not following any guide, I wrote this from my own experience. Although, this is not a guide or tips, just what I have seen.
