    Hello everyone,

    I've been scraping a lot of keywords lately and most of them get 100-500 exact searches a month. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do with them?

    I'm considering grinding it out and making hundreds of websites using free hosting and free domains. If I go this route, how should I monetize? Clickbank, CPA, Adsense, or something else?

    Not afraid to work hard on this at all, I know they will pay off. 100-500 exact searches a month is not bad when you're ranking for hundreds of websites.

    It's not necessary to always go after the big fish, remember.

    If the keywords are targeted like: Weight loss pills then you can use clickbank products as pills with a mix of Adsense... If you have more technology & software you can use CPA (fake Download buttons, etc...) also with adsense...

    But try to rank your website for more than 1 keyword each, but free domains... you should use blogger instead... free hosting & domains aren't liked by google.

    The only time I would ever go after low paying keywords is if it's for some kind of product where I'll get a decent commission after people visit my related website. Adsense isn't really worth it in this case unless you've got one main site & you're simply adding in these keywords via articles & whatnot.

    True they are at a disadvantage in the search engines. I believe because the subdomain is treated like a different website so every time you get a backlink to your subdomain you're giving some link juice to the free host itself. But you can still rank high for them, I've seen it.

    After more thought I will probably buy a VPS and just build my own subdomain system so I can keep all my link juice :D

    Still interested in hearing more ideas for monetizing, thanks!

    Well I have a lot of free time right now. So I'm building an empire. It's a huge waste of time working on ranking just one site at a time. And it's another huge waste of time investing all your energy and thought into only one site at a time.

    That's just my opinion though in the fast moving, vastly changing world of internet. You have to be adaptable, jump on working opportunities and discard whatever is not working for you. Not having all your eggs in one basket is not just a cliche here :p

    Ok here is what I would do.
    Put them all in market samurai,set competition to less than 100000,set seo traffic to more then 20/day,set to search type to exact,make PBR 10%.

    I was exactly the same thinking with you and found your thread , even when I am writing this post , my KW search tool is open in background.:) The main problem is nowadays it is so time consuming to find some good Kws with high search volume..Earlier I was never looking exact local seacrhs under < 4000-5000 now I am ready to accept even 1900 Exact / month , but I think people are buying crazy even I see those 1900 are also not avaible :)..

    My idea is digging more / specificly and as you said buying .com domains for some good KWs even under 1000.. I believe also if KW is good you can win more than .com reg fee for one year..(I am planning to use adsense )..

    Hey etrader you should do what I'm doing and rank on free-hosts first for these low searches. Simply because a lot of them could bunk and then you're down domain and hosting costs. My plan will utilize free hosting and take advantage of their free subdomain. If I find something that's profitable I'm going to take it over with paid domains but otherwise it's just testing.
