Hi everyone .I've recently joined BHW forum in the pursuit of IM and have read many articles . Lets get to the point. My story:I've made a MNS related to health niche in DEC 15 end,before knowing BHW and what to say ?I made a mistake while choosing keywords because when searching for the keyword in Google ,it will show most of the results as authority sites(Authoritynutrition,webmd,livestrong,organicfacts etc.) on the first page .My website currently has 5 posts and zero traffic even though all the links are indexed.It is not ranking anywhere in the top 10 pages . The mistake I made was not checking the first SERP. During keyword research I just saw the low comp keywords and 1.5$ish CPC and around 1-5 million search results.I feel like an idiot right now. The below phrase is very much applicable to me . I wanted to clarify a few doubts about Micro niche sites.(Not in context with my website,I want to know in general) -Do they still work in 2016? If yes then -What is the average time required to start seeing your income? -How many articles are required to rank your site in the SERPs?.(I know there are many sellers here on this forum offering MNS packages with 2 or 3 articles.) -Besides adsense what are the alternative monetization options ? -(Ultra noob question) Why are keywords with high competition and high search volume generally not chosen when building an adsense monetized MNS? -Is it possible for a MNS to outrank an authority site for the 1st rank or atleast 2nd or 3rd? -How many backlinks on an average are required to have your site ranking on the first page? -What are the valuable investments for MNS? besides domain and hosting Thank you in advance.
