    Want to start making niche sites and have paid someone a small amount of money to find me one.

    These are the results :

    1,300 exacts per month
    CPC of €0.59
    and the .org is available.

    (from google keyword tool)

    I don't know if I should go for it.

    What do you think ?

    If you think that there is some good money in it, buy the .org, buy the hosting, get five good articles on it and start earning.

    If you think that there is some little money in it (50$ a month) go to blogger and make a google blog in the same niche.

    Never thought about blogger to be honest.Thanks.

    I'm looking to start off with buying a decent domain and setting up a site using wordpress.

    As I said,paid someone to find a good niche but he told me a term that has 1900 exacts when it actually has 390 ! (from fiverr).

    Waste of time and money,but have rejected the work he has done so he might so another that's actually good :/

    To be honest i would not go for that keyword. You can find much... much better.

    What I do is regularly check expiring domains and recently expired and once in awhile i find a pretty sweet domain that everyone missed. Just have your google keyword tool open with "exact" searches only and start plugging in random domains that sound like they would be popular. you'll get lucky sooner or later.

    If you make a good template and get a decent CTR then it will defiently be worth it.Also you should look for books/products/cpa offers related to nichee,with that you could get some more $$$$

    junkie2 yeah might try looking at expired domains actually.

    Just want to spend a bit of money on domain/hosting etc and write a few articles to see if I can get in the top 5 results on google but can't find any niches that are good really.

    Somehow I never really understood how can anyone earn in microsites. I mean, how could it have traffic if it doesn't have enough content. Obvious newbie here.

    Think about something specific and marketable like... buy private jet, even with 1% conversion it can be interesting if you rank 1, and probably the site don't need to be a encyclopedia about airplanes.

    Yea, don't go for anything below 8-12k unless it's highly targeted traffic that you know will convert.

    I get around 180 - 250 uniques a day from a keyword ranked #1 with 18k exact searches a month. If that gives you a bit of an indication.

    Anybody can say "Stay away..." or "dive into...". It changes. One makes it a money making machine while the other gets it failed.

    You can even make money from the red spot on the nose of a pigeon.

    There is only one rule. All others are details:

    JUST WORK HARD
