    Hey,
    We'll I was looking to explore the world of microsites but then It hit me why not go ahead and target a keyword with higher views, for this to happen I think the site would need a whole lot more pages than what a micro would have(around 3-5 I'd guess)

    So I wanted to know a few metrics from bhw members, I know you guys are super helpful (besides I think this thread might help out a host of folks puzzled with the question)

    ****Metrics****
    seot : views a top ranked website (#1 site) would get.
    seoc : basically the competition.

    My Questions : [?] (For Microniche Sites)

    1.) What Is a good seot to start up with?
    I'm currently looking for figures around 300 but Is this too competative?

    2.) What Is a good seoc?
    Looking to go with competition of less than 100000
    any opinions?

    My Questions : [?] (For Mininiche Sites)
    Basically the same questions..

    1.) What Is a good seot to start up with?


    2.) What Is a good seoc?

    3.) How many pages for a Mininiche site would be good?



    So, on a conclusion whats better mininiche or microniche? also what are the best figures to start up with?
    Also Is using different domain names based on the keyword targeted a good option or just subpages?

    I hope folks learn from this thread, It might just be really helpful to me as well as others.

    Also, looking to post regular questions through this thread for other killer members to answer out to :rolleyes:

    Thanks guys,
    I know this forum Is something special :p

    I think your thinking too hard, it doesn't matter how many pages your site has, as long as what content you have is optimized. I have single posts on sites that bring in 95% of my traffic while my other articles under perform due to under-SEO.

    Choose an uncompetitive niche and it doesn't matter how many articles, choose a competitve niche and yo'll obviously need more SEO'd articles to rank well to make some coin.

    Right, you think so?
    Coz I'v heard around these forum's that single page articles might be a little risky since the G might think of them as sp*m.

    We'll the niche I'c chosen Is competative but the keywords are more or less not.
    I got .info's as well.

    I'm doing the same thing well i think.

    I'm building a niche site/community/blog

    brandabledomain./keyword1-keyword1
    brandabledomain./keyword2-keyword2
    brandabledomain./keyword3-keyword3
    brandabledomain./keyword4-keyword4

    So I guess by doing this I can target a whole bunch of micro niches under the same niche using a brand-able domain. No matter how much traffic the micro niche keywords receive it will add up since I'm planning on doing 100's of micro niches under my niche/domain. Plus i don't have to spend $100's of dollars on domain names.

    I agree with cookiejar. I'm still on "microsites" side rather than "minisites". It's all about finding uncompetitive niches and having exact match domains when you're doing microsites.

    Honestly. I really thought about doing that, but experience says, direct domain names are a whole lot easy to rank up to.

    Of course WP :D It's the only way to go. And the Plugins make it intelligent web real-estate. Combined with some Web 2.0 Link Wheels there is no way you cannot penetrate a semi-competitive niche and paste the front page with your links.:yes(1):

    yeah thats true but once you get big I'm sure you'll rank up. plus search engine is not the only way people can find you. Twitter, facebook, youtube, its all about marketing as well to get visits.
