I made my first $ with the 10 Micro Niche Sites that I currently run. They used to earn me about $100 a month on Adsense. It's been about a year since I started them, and profits have dropped to only $30 a month because I haven't been doing SEO on them. Before MNS, I tried a couple offline methods, ewhore methods, and some bittorrent methods. My problem was expecting to make money quickly with little work, so I'd try one method, be disappointed, and move on to the next method. Still am disappointed at my current MNS, but I am earning something, so I should really work to build those and increase my earnings there. Once they start bringing in some good, steady cash, I think I might try my hand at Youtube methods.
