    Hi all,

    I have recently found a niche with very low competition. If I make that niche there are 100 percent chances that it will perform well in search engines. But the problem is that it is a small niche and search volume is low. if I made it I will get around 100 to 200 visits daily from search engines and other sources.

    Please guide me can I make this niche or not. If yes then what will be the best way to monetize this site to earn.

    Thanks.

    100-200 visits a day means you might convert a few people, at most. If you're just putting ads on your site or selling a cheap product, it's probably not worth your time to pursue this unless you scale it up. Also, how can we talk about monetizing an audience without even knowing the niche? The health care niche is completely different than the gambling niche, for example.

    well to monetize are you going to be selling a product on your site? if so then there ya go sell it..
    if its an informational site put adsense on it
    it really depends on the niche and without knowing it then i cant tell you exactly how to monetize.

    100-200 visits a day isnt too bad but that also depends on your niche. if your getting 100-200 visits to your website for a local doctor then its going to be great for him. but if you get 200 visits to a informational website with adsense you may make a few pennies or bucks a day, but also that depends on your niche. if you get 200 visits to a site about the best doctors in (a city) you prob gonna make more in adsense because the cpc. so there are many factors that play a role in your question.

    dont expect to make much from such low traffic but if you can make $1 a day from that site in adsense then you win. just duplicate the process if you got 100 adsense sites all making average $1 day then thats 3k per month

    if you new to the IM world id suggest you read everything you can on this site.. when i was a newbie i read bhw for 3 months straight there is so much great info here

    good luck

    at least u know not to give ur niche out lol

    what is ur experience level in IM ?

    you want to monetize it every way you can.. i would most defiantly have adsense on it but depending on what the information/niche is about you could also put some affiliate links/products on there as well.. make sure your content is not spun or copied or anything it should be high quality content so ur reader actually finds ur site useful and will provide him the information he was looking for when he begin his search and found ur site.. if you have shit content well for 1 is bad for seo and you may never rank and 2 the visitor will just leave and ur efforts of monetizing became useless and a waste of time. when trying to build a site to monetize the most important thing is to make ur site a valuable source of information or you might as well take a piss in the wind while the wind is blowing really hard toward you lol

    also nobody wants the internet full of non useful sites that are trying to make a buck. google does a good job at putting sites like that on page 200 where you will never be found. so if you provide good content and value, google will like you and so will your readers..

    if its crap google will know and you wont rank well, they can tell by looking at the time a user spends on ur site. if every visitor hits the back button within the first 5 seconds of being at your site ur not gonna make money and not gonna rank... so maybe i answered ur question..

    For getting a more deep guide I have to further define my niche.

    It is a information based niche in which I have to define the information in pictures which I have to make in paint or other program. A single post will be a picture and some text (one or two lines) below the picture.

    Also please guide me can adsense allow small text niches ?

    Thanks

    without knowing your niche there is no way of understanding who your audience is and how to reach them and see what they want from you.. you can message me on skype nethead01 also its not going to hurt to post your niche here so we can help you further,, note you can always delete off the thread after we understand what ur site is about.

    100-200 in good high converting niche is enough tomake some money
    if your niche is like "gaming" "porn" or something like that it won't even be worth your time.
