Firstly I will be referring to Micro Niche Sites as MNS through this case study. Background Im currently building a MNS portfolio and was going to outsource everything to the service providers on BHW. But for the cost involved I thought I would be better off buying complete MNS's from the providers on BHW. Cost for the creation of 10 outsourced Niche site creation: Keyword Research: 10 x $11 = $110 Quality Content Creation decent enough for a money site: 10 per sites (100 x $5 =$500 Developer Virtual Assistant: $110 for 1 week to setup and configure all sites SEO for each site: Roughly $67 Total: $1390 As you can see it makes sense to use the MNS providers who charge from $35 to $97 depended on the number of unique articles and if SEO is included. Things to note first. I will be paying for all services out of my own pocket so if someone's service doesn't cut it I will make that clear in the case study as I have not only my time but my own money invested. I have informed all of the providers about this case study so their all on an even playing field. I have chosen the top providers based on number of positive reviews and the amount of time they have been offering their service. The Requirements: No Trademarked or Brand name in the domain We will select a specific niche if the provider allows Please see the image below for the chosen providers and the service purchased: Please note that domains and hosting is not included in these prices Links to the providers threads here on BHW msaqib_301 breakaway basstrackerboats sterday So far I have learnt that the main difference between the 4 offerings is the number of unique articles included and if you get any link building (Offsite SEO) included. The case study will be completed in two stages: Stage one - Once sites are delivered I will review the providers on the below factors. Keyword Research Site design and configuration Service provided Onsite SEO Ranking Competition Stage 2 - After 1 month i will update the thread with the serp ranking and profit margin from each site. I feel one month is the optimum time for the offsite SEO to start working and for the sites to stablize in the rankings Feel free to post comments in the thread and i will try to answer them. Also if you have any ideas or anything to add about the providers.
