    I'm fairly new here but I have dabbled in internet marketing the past few years. I like to think I know a decent amount about the business, since I do a lot of IM-specific writing for clients through my freelancing, but I've decided I'd like to see how a more "set it and forget it" type of website package can perform.

    Micro niche sites were pretty popular a few years ago, but people say they can still be profitable. My guess is that yes, they still can be profitable, but I'd like to know to what extent. This is why I'm creating this journey/case study to answer these questions:

    1. Are micro niche sites profitable?
    2. How profitable can they potentially be?
    3. How easy is it to flip an MNS?
    4. Where can you find the best value for your money?

    In order to answer these questions, I figure I will buy some for myself and see what works!

    I've picked 4 providers on here to supply me with these sites.
    20 websites from here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...icro-nich-sites-top-quality-only-30-a-16.html

    13 sites from here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-search-engine-optimization-guide-hurry.html

    5 sites from here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ro-niche-adsense-websites-all-cpc-2-a-20.html

    1 site from here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ngine-optimization-cheapest-yet-powerful.html

    39 websites total. These will be spread over 4 different hosts for about $5/month/host. The total cost of all 39 sites will end up being around $750. Domains will cost around $6/each (possibly less with a good coupon) for ~$234, bringing the grand total to just under $1000 up front, and $20/month in hosting fees.

    My main focus is going to be first on the suppliers, then on the websites themselves.

    I will be providing my input for the suppliers based on:

    1. How well they communicate.
    2. If work will be done when they say it will be done.
    3. Quality of work done when the sites are delivered.

    Input for the websites will be based on:

    1. How easily they rank.
    2. Average earnings per click
    3. Total monthly earnings
    4. Overall number of visitors
    5. Ease of flipping

    A few of the things I plan on doing with all of the websites include editing the content myself so that it is in perfect English, adding an ad platform, and building 1-2 social backlinks per site. Anything I do SEO-wise for one, I will do for all of them as long as this study is ongoing.

    At some point, probably in a few months, I'm going to wrap up the study with some final thoughts and all of the hard numbers. When that happens, I'll probably still give sporadic reports about how the websites I decide to keep are faring. My ultimate goal isn't to sell every website, it's to keep the very profitable ones for myself, if any of the sites become extremely profitable.

    Thank you both!

    I've ordered the 20 and 13 site packages already, still waiting to get in touch with the other suppliers.

    Just ordered the 1 site package. Once I get the 5 site package, I'll update this with delivery dates.

    For one site is only one keywords or more? How much you anticipate that you will earn on the one site?

    Good Luck with your journey WritersBlok! :eek: anyways, you should try 1 niche per seller. Don't purchase in bulk or you'll end up losing money.

    I bought one of the pack from one of them. I would not say which, unless u go digging into my profile.

    I will say it again. Unless you know what you're dealing with, it's not gonna go anywhere.

    One of them you listed gave me a bunch of crappy domains and niche, and turns out they were dropped EMD. He even gave domains that are brand name related which will get you in trouble.

    It would be better if you just build the site yourself and buy just the keywords and articles. That way you have more control over what niche to choose and quality of articles.

    Good intentions OP, but I think it would be better if you started this thread after you get the sites.
    When the providers see this thread, they will put in extra effort just to come out as the best in this study.
    Good luck for your journey.

    OP, that is a very dumb move you made. You haven't even calculated the cost of ranking them on Google. And even if they do promise you they will help you rank too, you'd have to wait for few months 6-8. You'd be silly to think they will do proper SEO for you too. Very very dumb move. If I were you, I'd use that money to build an authority website instead, get some top notch articles and just focus on one. Good luck.

    You should have bought just 1 of each first, saw how they ranked then tested different seo on each.

    I think the idea of comparing the provides is very good, yet the setup is rather questionable? What if 10 out of 20 of supplier 1 will make you money, and the "single" site of the last supplier does not end up making money, what would your conclusion be? Additionally, some providers seem to be offering different monetization methods than others. Will the monetization method be the same for all of the sites?

    Regardless of what I, and other members have mentioned above, I am still very interested to see how this pans out, and can't wait for the result. Good luck man!:banana:
