    I'm working with micro niche sites since 6 months. Now have 23 micro niche sites.

    I was updating them with new content with no order...

    1. At first I was adding new posts almost every day (2-3 micro niche sites) with 350 word post, but each week I was buying new sites, new domains and making new content for them. So I stopped adding new content, too tired and boring. (All originall content written by me)

    2. When reached 10-14 micro niche sites I was like LOL no way to update them constantly, what I did was update them for first week or two weeks with pages and posts, then stop updating. The results: great... until they drop rankings on google.

    3. Now I'm on 20-23 micro niche sites, thats a LOT for me, now I'm updating them with new content like 1 time per month, some of them (higher revenue) more constantly (3 times) . But that's a lot too!!! I'm not a writer!!! I don't want to write such amount of posts is incredible boring.

    4. This month, at 1 Nov. I decided to write a lot of post, I say to myself, come on, it's money to your pocket. So I design a Super SEO Boost Plan.
    This plan is like this: choose 3 websites, this 3 websites i'm going to boost in rankings, how? Updating them with new content each 3 days and buying SEO packages at black hat world to improve SERP for 1 month, for the next month I will choose other websites. The rest of websites (NON SEO Boost websites) will be updated with one post per 10 days.

    But the month still not over and I'm already tired of this method. I'm not buying more domains, because it means fore work.

    My new method is to update each website each 10 days BUT, I'm not sure that this is the best option...

    DETAILS:
    -1 Website is making 4?/day (before 20?/day, dropped ranking)
    -2-3 making 1?/day
    -8-11 of them making .25?/day
    -The rest 0?/day

    I don't want to lose ranking any more, because of that I need to add fresh new content to keep and improve rankings. I was making like 27?/day and dropped to 7?/day.

    So here goes the question:
    What are you do to update with new content your site?
    Most of you have +100 micro niche sites, can you share some tips?
    How you get backlinks, period-amount relation.

    I need some organization TIPS to manage over 100 Micro Niche Sites.

    BHW already help me a lot, hope to find some new good tips, thanks to all!

    You should add a few bookmarks to each post you make...
    (personal opinion)... If you use wordpress you can use a ping.fm plugin or something alike...

    I think you need to make a plan.

    If you have limited time/funds, then identify 1 or 2 sites that have potential and that you can monetize the best. Most of your time should be spent on these.

    The other sites could be updated once a week/month. If you're using Word Press, then you can schedule adding content at regular intervals.

    This is exactly why I prefer building authority sites rather than individual micro niche sites.

    Great idea for Backlinking! Didn't know about ping.fm great tool, now I'm downloading a Plugin that upload new post automatically.

    Thanks!

    And I also added some new ping list or update services to get some more auto backlinks and auto ping.

    Yeah exactly, this is my opinion also.
    I have about 25 MNS and it's very hard to control all of them all the time.

    Now i started with 2 authority sites and if i manage them good probably i will sell these MNS

    Ping.fm plugin no longer works, others plugins don't works too. OnlyWire works but need to pay each month.

    Witch I did is adding some websites to the updates service:

    I have one authority site too (tutorials), want to make another one soon about health.
    Don't need plugin. Wordpress let you schedule your post. I'm doing this also to organize my posts.

    I already made lots of plans, all of them boring for me and with a lot of work.

    If you check out unique article wizard website, you can subscribe for them to send you unique articles by email from a niche of your choice. Or check out another service thats just been launched where you pay $47 a month and you get 2 completley unique articles a day with the keywords you choose. If your sites are growing then why not invest money in unique content for it grow more. What are you using to monetize your sites?

    My NEW plan to update content for my 20 MNS is this:

    Day 1: Write 20 articles (1 article per website) (200-250 word)
    Day 2: Write 20 articles (1 article per website) (200-250 word)
    Day 3: Write 20 articles (1 article per website) (200-250 word)
    Day 4: Schedule article publishing in wordpress each 10 days for each website (1 month duration)
    Day 5,6 and 7: Write 20 SEO Target (+350 word content with images and videos) articles using Google tool External to get more visits and clicks. Schedule in wordpress.
    Day 8: Buy 3 cheap $5-$10 seo boost, directory or bookmark service to improve SERP of three of my websites. (Change every month)
    Day 9 to 30: Nothing, rest, search for new making money opportunities, sunbathe...


    Why 3 cheap services?
    My revenue right now is 200€/month, I spend 36€ for VPS witch contains all my websites + 20€ for SEO services + buying 2 new domains + some extra, total spend 70-100€.

    My Tip to write articles much faster:
    With this tip I write any article (200-250 word in 5 min). To do that I use windows voice recognition, works great, better than expected.

    Then I just search for a blog related to my niche and read it changing some words, phrases...etc. Its really fast, some of the times I say one word and windows voice write another, but no problem, it's well written so google doesn't care.

    For 20 MNS is fine... but for 50 or 100 MNS?
    The answer is outsource article writing, here in Spain I offer only 0.20€ for a 350 word article and a lot of people accept, and quality is great.

    But if I pay others to write articles, do seo + buying domains, vps maintenance my earnings become 20€/month, so for now i'm not going to outsource the writing.


    I'm going to do this plan until I make some good money (800-1200€) with 30-35 websites 1.20€/per website per day, then change the plan with Powerful seo packages and outsourcing writing.

    Keep sharing your tips!

    The problem is that my sites are in Spanish :(
    Anyway 47$ is a huge investment for me, almost 20% of all my revenue.
    And this service is for one website only, but I need to take the money from more of them.

    To use this type of service I need a +800?/month earnings.

    your micro sites are a business. %20 a month of your earnings should go to furthering your business. IMHO

    1. Aren't authority sites supposed to be updated with new content on the same frequency basis?
    2. How many posts -and what length- would you say you need to publish every week to maintain the position of your authority site in search rankings? (I refer to "week" as I think 1 post a week is enough for most micro niche sites, given they struggle in way less competitive markets than authority sites)
    3. Do you think authority sites are for newbies?
    It would be great to know the point of view from those running both authority and micro niche sites, as I'm afraid every newbie who lands to IM is going the micro niche road based on unrealistic expectations.

    Would you mind to share where on Earth you find great quality 350-words articles in spanish for 0.20??

    No offense. It's just it amazes me how cheap you buy and find this info useful for future multilingual projects (Obviously, I don't expect you to share your "sources" if they are scarce; just in case there were plenty of fish at that marketplace).

    --------------------------------------
    On a side note, I don't know whether this software works fine in spanish or not, but everybody is talking about Dragon Naturally Speaking as the best software for voice recognition. You may want to give it a go.

    Thanks for sharing!
    About 20% a month... there is no problem by spending 20% or even 50% of my total earnings for investment BUT i'm not going to spend 20% to boost 5% of my sites, I want to spend 20% and Boost 20% or more of my MNS.

    Example:
    I make 100$/month with 20 websites
    Want to invest 20% of my earnings witch is 20$
    If I do like you say, I would investing 20$ to boost only 1 website, this is it,
    if I get 100$ per 20 website, 1 of them is making 5$ a month, boosting 1 5$/month website. And what happend with the rest 19? And if a make 2 new website/month its no way to boost them all.

    What I do is 21$/3=7$
    Buy 3 7$ SEO services, one for each website.
    Create 2 new MNS each month
    And the next month buy 3 services for another 3 websites.
    By the time I'm going to invest 20? (26$) for SEO + VPS + new domains... almost 100? witch is almost 50% of all my earnings.

    To find this writers I do not search at writing agencies. What I do is search at forums/free article directory websites/personal blogs/warez forums... all kind of sites where people wirte a lot for free, most of them write great.

    Then I contact one of them and say that I'm going to pay them if he/she write me articles related to some niches:
    2 articles about travel
    3 about finance
    1 about...

    Each day he must send me one article (or two if he want), and at the end of the month I will pay 0.20? per approved article (unique and +350 word).
    So if he writes 29 articles I will pay him 0?, if he writes 30 I will pay 6?.

    Most of people that I contact at forums say:
    "Ohhhh no way, it's not gona pay just for write"
    "What??? Pay for writing, are you sirious?"
    "Get money by writing, it's impossible to get money so easy"
    ...But in spanish

    You say that when you don't add new content your earnings drop. Do you really need this much new content to rank?
    I don't understand this idea.

    I don't need much content but I have lots of micro niche sites, and growing, need a strategy to upload them all constantly to not drop in ranks.

    Also I don't want to work to much, want to update them all with the minimum effort.

    And I want to improve SERP of all MNS by adding backlinks and making seo target posts.

    All this things with a master plan to work 2h a day for 10 days in a month and make a constant adsense earning +1500?/month.
