    First off I'm sorry if you are fed up of journals however following Wendettas success and drive I want to replicate it with a different method.

    I was going to write this as a retrospective journal and post it once I?ve completed the challenge, however I think it might be beneficial for myself and others if this is posted as it happens.

    What I intend to do

    I have set myself the challenge of making $50 a day from microniche sites. Some people say they are dead, and from my little experience I have to say otherwise. I will be researching all the keywords myself. I intend to target a KW with at least 1k US monthly searches, but it must have the scope for some longtails so taking 10 pages of content the monthly search volume will be in excess of 3k searches.

    I will then write the articles myself! I know outsourcing is key in making money effectively but first off I want to master micro niches. I have experience in SEO and can rank websites but microniches so far I think are slightly different. Some keywords that would work well for authority sites don?t work so much for microniches.

    How long will it take to do it?

    Time is money, I don?t want to set an estimate that is simply unreachable as I thoroughly intend on hitting this target. So far I?ve built 3 websites (last week), to test the water so to speak. Site 1 is ranking in position 4 for main KW and in position 7 for 4 others and another 4 kw?s in top 20. I am currently doing my second and last linkbuilding campaign so I can leave it drip to #1. This will leave me with 3200 exact searches per month targeted with a $2.2 average CPC and medium adwords competition. Assuming ranking in top 5 average within 3 months and a 1.5% ctr I estimate this site to earn $13 dollars a month. If however I hit the top 2 I estimate the earnings to be $40 a month. (Earnings via adsenseflippers niche profit calculator)

    So quite a rough estimate and only time will tell if those figures are anything to go by but by those numbers I need a hundred sites of that stature if I rank top 5, if I rank top 2 which is what I really am aiming for then 38 sites.

    So this is basically the route I?m taking probably producing 3-5 sites a week. Putting me on track for Christmas 2012. On a sidenote you may think 1 site of 10 pages with 400 word articles takes a while, well it doesn?t if you know how to type. I can do 400 word articles in 10-15 mins that are of reasonable-good quality. It simply takes me 15 minutes of surfing to acquire the knowledge I need then I am away. So that?s 2 and a half hours a day writing. Then 1 hour to setup the website and then another 2 hours setting up the link building campaign. 5 and a half hours a day not totally unreasonable. Once I do see returns and my method is working naturally I will outsource some of this and increase site production.

    So yeah that?s my plan, I intend to update this thread 2-3 times a week. I have my plan sorted out, I?ve done enough reading on BHW and have my SEO strategies sorted. I hope you find this journal as motivating as I do.

    So DAY 1 ? Invested: Hosting $8
    3 Domains all .coms $30
    Earn?t: $0 Adsense was put on at the time of writing this post.

    Back to writing 5 more posts for my next site and then some more KW research.

    Cheers, Cecle.

    The way i do these is to research like im gonna build an auth site then break it down into 30-40 MNS sites with the usual 1k and min $1.00 cpc {i get some real nice KW's this way}
    since there are all somewhat related gathering material to write articles is much faster.

    keep your spirit, even if you don't see the result coming in a week or two. i think for 10 pages is better to schedule your post, like one in 3 days, make it natural. do BL things after index. i ever make mistake by do BL thing right away after the site lives and not being index yet. and it makes others so hard. always keep spirit.

    Good luck, I've got 10 MNS up and running, did them all within a weeks time, so this is the second week. I can already see results so I know this is profitable, rankings and traffic are everything. It looks like we're doing everything almost identically. Both typing up 400 word articles and doing roughly 3-5 sites a week (I had originally planned to do 10 a week but...gets tiring without outsourcing anything). Ranking MNS is pretty easy, I've had sites get indexed and rank in the top 10 in less than an hour.

    I'll be following this, should help to keep me motivated.

    OP, this is what I am looking to do at the moment as well. Would it be possible to ask for your skype or msn etc to have a quick chat? I can't PM as I'm a new member, but I would like to pick your mind for five minutes if you dont mind

    Besides the fact it's a MNS with an EMD and the content is all SEO optimized properly I really just do the basics, a little social bookmark submitting and an article submission or two. Not all that much. I've never had a problem ranking a micro niche site doing just this.

    But in the game of MNS it's all about keyword research (which is good and bad, you pick a good keyword your set, pick a bad one and you failed from the start). You need to make sure the competition for your site is basically non-existent (that is, if you want to rank quickly).

    Hi, I will follow your progress, its something I have always wanted to do but never had the balls to do it because of all those adsense ban stories.. i bottled out and stuck at 1 semi authority site. Maybe your journey will convince me otherwise ;)

    Good luck.

    Sounds like an interesting approach I will keep that in mind
    Yeah I don't just throw 10 posts on the site, add 3 then drip the rest.
    Yeah I also wanted to do more but I want to keep the quality very high. Yeah ranking is easy as but some KW's I want to go for are medium comp which requires abit more but it's all part of the experiment to find the perfect micro niche formula.

    I was wondering what peoples experiences are like with 'how to' micro niche sites.

    Quick earnings update got my first click of $.70 onwards and upwards!

    Cheers, Cecle.

    This is good. I just started two micro niche sites myself, so I'm interested to see how you do. Good luck :)

    Great thread! I am looking forward to hear from you more! I am also planning to set up more micro niche sites to increase some earnings. But as I see it takes some time to get back the investment :p

    I'm following this thread....would you be willing to explain a little bit about how you do your keyword research? That's the biggest hurdle I have.
