    I've got $10 for a domain, some great software at my disposal and the morning free so I'm going to start this case study.

    The idea is to find super micro niche EMD's with low competition, very high cpc and low searches.

    Why low searches? Because everyone ignores them, as they should. But this left me wondering, what if some of those low searched keywords have a really high cpc? You'd only need 1 click a month to make it viable. Worth a test.

    I've used Longtail Pro and Stealth Keyword Competition Analyzer to find my test keyword.

    Here are the basic details:

    Insurance Niche
    .net EMD
    6 words
    480 Global Searches
    73 Local
    cpc $86.60

    Top 10 Competition:

    5 sites with PR0
    2 sites with 0 trust flow
    9 sites with not edu/gov links
    8 sites without keyword in title/description
    6 sites with less than 10 unique referring domains

    The Site:

    Wordpress
    Responsive Theme
    5 Pages (home page rewritten from ezine article, inner pages auto spun and tidied up)
    Innerpages are sub niche of main niche (which is already micro)
    Adsense from day 1
    1 relevant image per page
    1 relevant youtube video per page
    Privacy policy
    Analytics Installed

    I have just finished the site and will send it to indexers today.

    Promotional Plan:

    GSA SERP
    GSA Captcha Breaker
    GSA Indexer
    PR1+ only
    20 links on day one with increments of 20 per day

    Current Situation:

    Google.com Rank: n/a
    SE/Social Traffic: n/a
    Other Traffic: n/a
    Earnings: n/a

    Wish me luck! I know it may seem a little pointless with such low searches but I'm intrigued as to what will happen as I chase just 1 click a month.

    this looks truly amazing to be honest, unique journey. With a couple of click a monthx10 websites it's a good, stable passive income.

    Wish you all the luck

    good luck in your case study.
    Can you please check your keyword CPC in this tool of google if you are trying to use Adsense ?
    Code:
    [URL]https://adwords.google.com/o/ContentTheme/Explorer?__c=2591012452&__u=7146272092&__o=ctt[/URL]
    It is called : Contextual targeting. sometimes, you can find keywords with high CPC (for search advertisers) but low for websites using adsense and vice versa.

    Example :
    Google Contextual targeting tool : http://i.imgur.com/1NAzLQg.png car crash lawyers $11.05 per click
    Google Keyword tool : http://i.imgur.com/Pg9zgoc.png car crash lawyers $73.70 per click

    Good luck but I also run high cpc keywords and sometimes when people click them I only get $0.70-1.00 because the ads go based on there searches, I tried turning social ect off and it still does it so unless they are searching alot for that keyword I don't think it will work too well

    Thanks. I could but 3 .com's, but the .com for this gem was gone :) I've had no trouble ranking .net in the past my others are all on page 1 so I'm not too worried.

    How many adsense blocks are you using? The key to getting a nice high CPC sometimes means only using 1 block, so only the highest paying ads are on your page...but you have to be confident your theme/placement encourages a good CTR

    Just google Godaddy coupons. They sell .coms for 2 dollars or less.
