    Hi,

    I am trying to create a new micro niche site. I can't use Adsense as my account was banned from Google about a year ago when I didn't fully understand the rules :(
    So I am stuck with Clickbank or Amazon or CPA. I am a bit lost right now and could use some help to get me back up and working on this project. I am stuck because I don't know whether to chose on product of clickbank or multiple products, I don't know which product(s) to chose, I don't know whether to go for CPA or Amazon instead. I have Keyword Scout for keyword research. I am on a low budget. I don't understand fully about keywords, like how you can have multiple keywords or what long tail keywords are. I am really confused and this is only for keyword research! I don't know how I will cope with SEO or site building.

    Any help is really appreciated, thanks!

    Keyword research is something that confuses me a bit too at times. There's so much conflicting information out there on what to look for, what is a good keyword, how many number of searches are good etc.

    long tail keyword is like its name, its long keyword (3 words or more) but generally got less search volume but more targetted. For example: black cat food ebook instead of just, black cat

    Microniche usually how many page? If its 10 page, use 10 article, 1 article per keyword.
    The main keyword should be your domain name, if you get one, and the highest search volume.

    Sort out keywords around your clickbank product or CPA offer. Well, i am not pro, i just trying to share what i know.

    But, I don't know how we suppose to do SEO to rank 10 keywords, 1 keyword is already daunting task for this. We start with the easy keyword to the hardest keyword , or something like that ? Any expert want to help, post it below.

    i recently get into MNS dont know will be doing it in long run or not but was giving it a try.well if you want to do good keyword research u have to use more than one keyword analysis tool (like market Sumarai, Traffic travis, keyword canine, adwords keyword tool etc) and gather more data about specific keyword that u want to dominate in google.

    Some imp data u have to note from every kw tool is

    1.Number of Global Searches.
    2.Competition (i suggest go fro easy and low ones if u are new in mns).
    3.Number of overall competition in google.(by searching the exact kw or term in google with quotes for example : "low calorie diets")
    4.Google adverts Competiton (the higher the good if you are going to use adsense).

    These are some basic to look for before going for mns also check the below post if you are low on budget and want to use free adwords kw tool.

    thanks

    Thanks everyone. Ok I have decided to go with Amazon. I have a couple of keywords. I don't understand though, I have chosen a product and my keyword is my product, so do I register my domain name as my keyword(my chosen product)?

    Thanks!

    You avoid brand name domains, because if the keyword is in the trademarked product name you're in for legal trouble. If it's a review site, you're better off with a domain saying videocamreviews.com, vs. one saying SamsungModelXreviews.com.

    Thanks, so I could choose a site for example like electronicreviews.com for reviewing multiple Amazon products in the electronics section, e.g camera,tvs,etc.?
    If I did something similar to this, what would I be trying to rank, the reviews or domain name?
    Also how many keywords a review should I have?
    And how easy is it to rank these sorts of sites and do they convert?

    Thanks!

    Whatever the keyword is, it should correspond to an actual search volume demand (as in say 2,000 global or local exact searches a month, or whatever). The Google keyword tool helps you find the in-demand keywords, which may work for one product or a set of products. You are trying to rank the keyword, not the domain, although having the keyword in the domain typically helps to rank it. There should be one main keyword in an article, but a sprinkling of associated keywords help out by getting you extra traffic if they are also ranking well.

    The ease of ranking the sites depends on how may other sites are using the same keywords, and on how much quality on-page and off-site SEO you have set up. If you have done enough to get it ranked 1-3 on page 1 of the search results, project about 20% of unique visitors looking for the keyword to take a look at the site. Of that population, conservatively 1% should click through to Amazon, CB, Adsense, or whatever ad you have decently set up to monetize the MNS.

    Thanks, I have a chosen the domain and I will register it tomorrow. it isn't the product name, but it is specific to the products and it will allow me to review more than 1 product. Is wp robot a good investment for what I am doing, or will it not help?
    Sorry I am a complete noob so I am unsure what the difference between on page and off page SEO is?

    Thanks again!

    On page = Keyword in optimal places (url, title, header, in text) and other places on the site. Off page = links to your site from related sites Google thinks have good authority, or are highly ranked. WP-Robot or other autoblog tools are RISKY to use for sites if you are relying on SEO or ranking to get traffic, or on Adsense to monetize. It's best to use non-SEO methods for traffic when creating autoblogs.

    You really should download and study the free shares about MNS available on this site, or use the search button read back discussions on the subject, or else hire a consultant to step you through the site creation process if you don't want to take that much time.

    Micro Niche Site A site with 1-5 pages on it normally, abusing the power of an EMD (Exact Match Domain), simple quick, usually crappy ugly, usually only makes a few bucks a month each
