    Is it possible to rank a mns JUST by adding content to it over and over again and nothing else? Since google loves unqiue conent, what would be wrong with that? Ife seen people stating they have had succes with it on quite a few threads. Wouldn't that be getting "organic traffic"?

    Also what are you thoughts on monetizing a mns with an affiliate product or CB product instead of adsense? If you were going after a low comp keyword with say about 5000 exact a month, do you think its worth it? Or is this more along the lines of a CB review site?

    How long in general would it take to rank a mns at number 1 for about 5000 exact? What has been your experience with ranking them? Thanks.

    I'm ranking a 2000 exact MNS with only content, no linkbuilding done to it whatsoever, it actually shot up after penguin to #3.

    how are you monetizing it? Is your CTR or sales rate good? Also how long did it take to rank #3?

    It doesn't hurt creating a few backlinks. But try it and let us know the results.

    How much content do you have? How often do you update it?

    I am currently ranking #3 on a MNS with only offsite SEO and only the basic WordPress install running on the site itself.

    You can do it both ways...the best way is to focus on a mixture.

    i had a site where i did 1 only 1 backlink which i randomly found a place to place.. other than that i makde a crap youtube video about it, shot it up with buy traffic and made a couple of forum threads about it eg"check out my new site ".

    now the site is ranking for multiple keywords in mulitple search engines. its getting traffic for main keyword and is gainging orgain google traffic like 50 hits in a day, dont know how many where from youtube, forums or google. but it shows you just with googd content and a signle youtune video with 1 backlink, how much i managed to reach.

    in short words, i achiewved all that without even starting any seo or promotion . LOl

    Content and backlink combination is best. But I never ranked any MNS without backlinking though.

    Adsense, and the CTR is like 2-3%. I've had the site since November, and it never really left the first page after about a week, it did take until penguin before it hit #3 though.

    It's got I think 6 articles, it started with 5, a couple of months ago I added one, and that's about it. I've been meaning to add another one, but I've been keeping busy.

    Good back linking will never hurt you. If you are adding content and dripping in some varied, quality links then you will rank top 3 for a mns. I've ranked niche sites just off content but saw them dissapear once I laid off on adding content.

    Micro niche sites are not works of art they are just delivery devices for small profits. Add content if you can but use the tools and back link

    site will only rank for low competition kw, keep adding contents means you are going to rank a bunch of long tails, that's a little help for ranking main keyword. updating content without backlinking is not brilliant though
