    When building micro niche websites, how much traffic do you aim for? I guess you mainly aim to profit, but you must have a rough number of visitors you'd like to aim for.
    How much? 50 daily? 100? 300? 500?

    With micro niche sites if you are getting 50 really targeted visitors that would be awesome, they will surely clic your links. How are you trying to monetize the site? adsense?
    I´m getting 10 targeted visitors to two of my micro niche sites and getting like 1-5 clics per day.

    It really depends on the niche and the product you are promoting. If you're promoting high ticket items, it may not be as popular and therefore will get less clicks due to less overall traffic.

    Not sure how I'm gonna monetize it yet.
    I'm making numerous websites, some aren't targeted, but easy to get a good ranking.
    I have a main site I have had for 10+ years and probably going to try and send traffic to that website. I'm going to interlink them, just hope I don't get banned for it.

    Right. That's what I've normally shot for. LOCAL EXACT is even better.

    What I ended up with is another matter. One of my "successful" micro niche sites would typically get 150 solid uniques a day on average. Typically I would end up with 20-30 a day for a "normal" site. (all based around the 3,000 exact matches level - results vary depending on the competition.)

    As long as you have an exact match domain, it'll rank no matter what on Bing. At least SOMETHING will dribble in and pay for the registration and hosting.

    My answer would be as many as possible. In a micro niche very targeted hits will be very profitable. I have found that if someone goes on a micro niche blog and is well targeted they usually are looking to buy something if not on their first visit soon. Develop your audience and the sales just come!

    When I first started, I disregarded anything below 80 searches a day. Anyone who has done the 30DC/Challenge will know of the criteria they use and it's perfect for beginners.

    These days, I target every single keyword in my niche regardless of search volume because in my experience, data is more a guide than proof positive of the traffic you will receive.

    You also need to factor in the intent behind the search. Some low volume search phrases convert extremely well, some high volume searches don't convert at all.

    For example, I have a page dedicated to a search term that according to Google, gets 11 exact searches/month and I typically receive 5-6 visits/month (I am ranked first but below an Adwords block). This is a product review search and my affiliate pays $84 per sale. I have an article as well as a video that reviews the product. I have sold at least 1 per month from this low volume but highly converting search phrase.

    Another thing you need to take into account is how the search phrase or keyword is trending as well as the broader market it belongs too.

    For example, let's say we have a keyword that receives 100 searches per day. Using Google Insights, we can check the history of this keyword and see if the keyword and broader market it belongs to is trending upwards or downwards. This works well with low volume keywords as well because you can tell if it's going to grow over the next few years or if it's losing search volume year on year.
