    Back in Sept I got interested in the whole micro niche sites. I found a keyword that has 1600 exact searches a month with little competition. I bought a domain, and outsourced all my article writing and backlinking, then I just put the site all together myself. In the beginning of November my site hit top 3 positions for my 4 main keywords. Once that happened Ive making an average of $11 a day from adsense/amazon for the past 6 weeks.

    To me this just seems to good to be true. Everything Ive read on here everyone says you really have to work your ass off to make money, your going to fail over and over again before you get it right etc. I dont remember exaclty what I invested in this project, but I know it was less than $50 bucks, and I bet I dont have more than 10 hours of work put into this project. Did I just get really lucky with my keyword or is this how you do it?

    Hopefully this is how you do it. I did some more keyword research last night and bought 10 more domains with similiar stats to my first keyword. I guess this is what everyone means by "rinse and repeat"?

    Making money is not really easy. You have a good start because you found some very good keywords that gave you good results. Most people start with crappy keywords that don't bring them anything. They get frustrated and quit too soon.

    Seems you are on the right track for sure. Alot of people including myself try to find somethign that works and flip back and forth between different things trying to make money.

    I'm very guilty of this and has taken me alot longer to make good money. I'm getting there slowly though.

    If it's working for you keep doing the same thing with different niches and try to expand out testing other methods and try to scale up.

    Good luck!

    Good choice of keywords, definitely. It usually takes a couple times of falling on your face to figure out what to look for. Don't get discouraged if your next one bombs, just pick yourself up and keep trying. Also, 5 bucks says someone asks for your keywords/domains within the hour.

    Thats one thing I did spend a lot of time learning and reading about was proper keyword research. I think if you got that down everything else is a piece of cake.

    You know right now I'm making at least $5 a day on adsense. I remember just a month ago it was just 0.10 and I was excited to get to a $1.00. I owe a lot to these forums really but I'm not in the financial spot to donate yet. But I agree with OP and I can see that happening here. Never give up, keep on trying and thinking of new ideas to get your hands on some cash. We're all in this together on BHW! Good luck to anyone starting up.

    Every keyword or niche got potential, you need to find what is good for you. For example some one will go for high volume even if it will take time or money, for them such low volume keywords are not good.

    For starters people should go for small keywords, this way they have chance to get success earlier which keep motivation to continuing work...

    I think you got lucky. Things can go wrong even if you have a lot of experience and "know how"

    I stands to reason that with thousands of people building thousands of sites every day that some will make money easily and most won't. Your site is one of the fairly successful ones but it's not entirely due to luck because you did things the right way from the start. The trick now is to do it again and again but don't start thinking it will be a doddle all of the time.
