    Just launched my first micro niche site (mns).

    I added a total of 5 articles written by myself around the niche targeting keywords that had 2 or more PR0 comptetitors and 2 or more 0 backlinks competitors (as shown by market samurai)

    I added google sitemap plugin and submitted it to google webmaster tools.

    The theme I chose was a copy of the one on this page and I used the same ad placements except only one ad in the content and a 468 banner at end of content:
    http://www.my4hrworkweek.com/adsense-micro-niche-site-public-case-study-%E2%80%93-content-ad-placement-part-4/

    Now what are the next steps I should do to make this profitable and get ranked? Thanks for your input.

    There is no specific way to gauge how much you'll be earning from a niche site right out of the gate. If you've got immediate and high expectations then you're kidding yourself; don't do that. You'll feel worse if you set unrealistic expectations. Give it time and you'll see some kind of benefit from your hard work. Good on you for writing your own articles. Have you thought on keeping a schedule for posting articles to your website? Blog readers are a fan of consistency and over time they can become dedicated readers if the content you are posting remains true to the niche.

    Try to stay consistent with writing relevant articles. Since it doesn't look like you have too much competition, I'd say 1 article/week should suffice. Don't be alarmed if you don't see results right away.

    Getting Indexed, Slowly start Linkbuilding, maybe start off with Social Bookmarks.

    i thought the benefit of MNS sites were that you didn't need to add a lot of content to get ranked? the only problem with this niche i picked is that there are not that many keywords within it that have enough traffic to warrant writing articles for. i picked it cause the main KW gets 9,000 estimate to #1 spot in google. honestly i think i will tap out at about 7-10 articles max using the data provided by Market Samurai for good keywords.

    should i just let the site sit for a while to see if it starts getting ranked before doing anything else?

    My thoughts too.

    Last few weeks I've been researching markets/niches, and have come across some thin affiliate sites (Amazon 'sniper' sites) floating around on page one. These are simply five-page deals that have ranked.

    Gives you some hope I suppose.

    Its good to see you are taking action. I recently started my first micro niche mini authority site and I am now starting to see some better ranking and earnings. I'm going to give you a few tips that I have learned so far.

    Content is now more important than ever. Just because you are targeting a few keywords doesn't mean you dont need much content. Google finds sites with 3 pages of content and thousands of inbound links more suspicious than ever. I have added more content than some would say I need and the most recent google update did not affect me at all. I would also recommend that if you are a native english speaker you write your own content because most purchased content isn't up to par.

    In terms of ads I would put a skyscraper ad in your sidebar.

    Also work in some social signals those seemed to give me the most bang for my buck.

    Finally stick with it. It took me awile to make first page and start earning more, but it did happen.

    Reward the strong. If you do a number of MNS sites, work them up to the same 'minimum' extent (x amount of articles, x amount of quality diverse backlinks), then move on to the next. The sites that perform well or better can be the ones you enhance first, the others later, as you have time, or maybe never.

    Write a few articles and submit them to Squidoo, Ezine Articles, Tumblr, Blogger, and Amazines.
    (there are more, but that is a good start)

    Be sure to leave a link back to your site with your keyword as the link text.
    Then if you have software, backlink blast those articles that are not on your site. (listed above)
    If you don't have software, buy a few fiverr gigs of scrapebox blasts or bookmarking blasts for them.

    Keep doing that for better results, but you will see your site slowly creep up. :)

    From my (limited) experience with MNS so far, I'd recommend:

    Adding a visual hit counter to the site, something people can see where hits are coming from. this builds trust in the site. i use PulseMaps, free plugin from wordpress

    do keyword research on the #1 site for your keyword, paying attention to the % of keyword, and aim for your site to be just a smidge above (if their % is 3.5, go for 4)

    use the adwords keyword tool, do a regular broad search of your keyword, make no changes to anything, and sprinkle the first 3 results through your content.

    as anyone on BHW will tell you, build backlinks. i have been doing it manually, using google to search for blogs based on my keyword, with results from the last week. i don't bother to see if is ******** or not, just getting the "word" out. i posted to one blog that i know was nofollow, yet alexa says it's a link in.

    Yahoo Answers - find something on your keyword and make a good answer and put your url in the post and source. as long as it looks like a legit, well thought out answer, it will get by.

    don't put any affiliate links on the home page, do your best to funnel people into sub-pages.

    get google analytics running and pay close attention to keywords and adjust your tactis. also, follow visitor flow and think of how to fix drop-offs.

    submit your site to google webmaster tools.

    above all else, look at the site through unbiased eyes - if you were the average joe, would you think of clicking/buying something based on what the site shows. target your audience.

    That's all I got, hope it gives you some ideas :)

    are these supposed to be original articles for each site?
