    Got some spare cash and thinking of simply throwing up a long tail keyword domain with a 1 page 100% unique content to see what happens. I'm monetizing with amazon, maybe a product keyword.

    I usually go for competitive terms but I see no reason not to give this a try.

    Well ranking for a long tail is usually quite easy. But i'm just curious if there is anyone using this as their main method of making sales.

    I still see 1 page websites and most of them are in page 2 or 3 with 10 links going into them. The domain is exactly the same keyword which is what is ranking them.

    Here are some 1 page domains I have ranked, most with no links coming in, or barely any.

    Site1 no links 5,400 exact searches, ranks 28.
    Site2 few hundred links 880 exact searches, bit of competition as it's a targeted keyword. Ranks #3

    Actually realized I have too much to sit here and post each one.
    I have 52 one page EMD in the top 30 of google.
    About 65 in the top 50. Ten more in the top 500.
    Then about 50 more EMD that are not ranked.
    10 in the top 10.
    Some in the top 30 have no links and were never pinged or anything.
    Most with about 5-10 links.
    Searches range from 880 to 5000 per month.

    I have one EMD witha bout 800 searches per month that's targeted and a bit of competition. It has been one page for about a year now and I added three more pages hoping it would improve rank, but it's been a month now and no change. That keyword is stuck on #5.

    Attached a screen of first bit of sites just for proof, stupid thing resized the pic so uploaded it.

    Are they product keywords for amazon?

    If not then what are you monetizing with?

    Some are product keywords, some are just phrases, similar to the potato site above.
    Worked out a deal with a company, and they are paying me 35cents per click I send them. So I just link to them. They actually paid me $10 per site I put up too, so covered my cost of the domain. There are 120 total.

    I should add, I don't care too much about these sites. It's just a small project. They are on 6 different hosting IPs.

    I have another 110 domains that I am actually developing, and putting up 4-5 pages of unique content, then will link to money site. They really could be just 1 page sites, but I don't want google to frown upon it for being one page and linking to my money site.
