    Since I started I've been going after 20 page niche sites about bird houses, and counter tops hahah is this NOT what to do? I see these guys going after debt consolidation etc, theres so much competition there, I always go for "kitchen sink paint" etc .....

    Am I wrong on this? yeah I'm getting no visitors either soo... I think these topics are not good for mini-sites.. anyone else in these fields??

    "Bird bath pond soap" etc hahahahh

    It's a workable method but you have to be able to build and promote a LOT of different sites in different niches at once to make decent money.

    Also I'm not a huge fan of selling physical goods because international shipping is a real issue. That's what I like about products with digital delivery - you can sell to anyone, anywhere.

    I agree with Autumn, although I'm new to IM the one thing that turns me off about micro niches is the need to manage large amounts of sites. Just write unique, high quality content and try to become the authority on the subject. Focus on one high traffic keyword per site and it's easy enough to rank as long as you check your competition.

    I gotta say I prefer physical goods more than digital. I'm quicker to buy physical items than an eBook or a piece of software.

    Just make sure you do your keyword research first and go for the buyer keywords to base tiny niche sites around. No use in building a tiny niche site when BUYERS are not searching for the niche.
