    Now I'm sure this is going to get the attention of a few people, after all, we're all alike in the sense that we all want to prosper.


    I've been doing IM for quite some time now and have taken advantage a particular niche that has turned out to be relatively lucrative. With the money from this project, I'm planning on scaling this a bit more (obviously)

    I'm sitting on a single term, low competition, KW with over 6.1mil monthly global and monthly local searches.

    Basically what I'm doing is opening up the room for ideas on what YOU would do with something like that..

    Did you make sure to check the "Exact Match" box?

    If that's the exact number of searches, I'd setup a site in the given niche, monetize it, seo it, and bank. <-- Pretty much everyone would do that would they not? Without knowing the niche we can't exactly give you custom tailored advice, which it seems you're asking for.

    Not exactly gold mine, but real estate and maybe some water.

    6.1 mil monthly, I think you have it set to broad match there. Still it could be worthwhile but I would do a bit more research just to make sure.

    Other than that, it depends on the keyword/niche on how you are going to monetize but the_demon has the right idea

    Sounds too good to be true......The only way you will know if its a goldmine is to get to work and start trying to tap it for all its worth.

    Here's what I would do;

    Give my head a shake.
    Go back into adwords and check the 'exact' results for the keyword
    See the 6.1m turn to >1000
    Cry a little, learn from the experience and move on.

    1)Set up popup form to collect email addresses after 24 seconds.
    2)Have email form on sidebar.
    3)Don't have a ton of banners but 2 or 4 that rotate
    4)Make a page/post for every unique keyword, no dupe shit as far as synonym
    5)DON'T sell on every page but 1 link below fold is cool. Also signup form at end of post is encouraged.
    6)Do it 3-4 pages/day
    7)???
    8) Profit.
