    Well, I have been in the IM world for just under a year. And have made just a couple thousand dollars using various techniques. I strayed away from adsense because I had no clue of how to find my own niches and keywords.

    But tonight I have found a simple way to find a niche, so I am going to make a return to adsense. It may not be a niche I am interested in, but a niche none the less. Here is how I find the MOST RELEVANT niches.


    1. Go to google and paste this into the search bar
      Code:
      allinurl:wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/wpgroho.js
    2. Click "Show search tools" on the left-hand side of the google nav bar
      • Search by "Past month"
      • Search by "Sorted by date"
    3. You now have a list of all IMs who rely on the above plugin to run their micro-niche site
    4. Once you click on the site, go to their top-level domain
    5. Find out what their niche is and steal their keywords
    Note: The above can also be done by placing the following search term into google
    Code:
    allinurl:wp-content/themes/ctr-theme/ctr/subthemes/
    So there you have it. This is the EASIEST way to find niche sites that use adsense and a way to steal/find keywords WITHOUT paying for a program. I have other methods that do NOT involve searching through directories, but I'll keep that to myself for now.

    I will be releasing more search queries like the ones above that return more results within the next week. So stay TUNED =)

    I still can't figure out how to do it. FML. I can't even do the very basics of IM. :-(

    Not sure if I'm doing this right but I think I am...

    The niches I'm finding are "Vintage Australian toys and ice creams", generic iphone news sites and a site called "CouponDad" rofl...

    Not sure these are the greatest niches out there. Thanks for the share though glad it's working for you.

    This is what I have. Keep in mind, I'm a total dumbass. I'm trying to find keywords for authentic wholesale designer brands. (I'm not even sure what a "keyword" is.)

    This is what I got:

    Thanks man. I have a list of plugins and mods I am working on to figure out which ones show the best search results. The above 2 are okay, but they are really meant to get you thinking on how to find a niche. I'll release another G search query that generates MORE results later this week. If I haven't posted new searches by Friday, someone send me a PM and I'll post them.

    This type of searching isn't meant for find specific niches or keywords. It is meant to find what other IMs are doing with their niches. Once you find a site littered with adsense, you can take it and run with the wind. Steal their niche, investigate their keywords, and then do it better

    That is just from those search queries. I have others that return more results. I am just waiting to release them. Think of it as a preview of things to come. The next search query I release will contain much larger results.

    Can't be to shady if the only tool you need is google.

    Guys these are just google footprints to find out which sites use specific plugins and themes such as CTR Theme (designed for microniche sites)

    It is a good way to see what other's keywords and domains are but then you'll need to outrank these people - basically become their competition. For those of you who already use Jetpack and CTR Theme and don't want to show up in these results and risk getting your niche "stolen" just add the files you don't want exposed in your robots file like this:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: wp-content/plugins/

    Still, it is a pretty cool trick to get quick results on relevant sites/keywords. Thanks for the share.

    No problem. But I have a method does NOT involve the use of exploring wp-contents to find out what plugins they use =) Which I will probably be keeping to myself :cool: Having "moderate" hacking skills helps, learned to hack before I knew you could make money online lol

    It does NOT have to be those plugins, those are just some I took from my list. Find the most popular plugins IMs use, and input them into your search. It is pretty much reverse engineering a niche that you didn't know existed, and from there taking that sites keywords for your own use.
