Hey guys. I have been searching and surfing BHW for a while now and I have decided that making micro-niche sites will be the best way to go for me. So, with that said, I am having trouble finding a sort of definitive guide or at least some guidelines to go on, that explain what I should look for in keywords, CPC, searches per month (global or local?), related longtail keywords, and everything else. From my understanding so far, I think I need to follow these guidelines: CPC: No lower than $1.00 Searches/mo: 1000-2000 (but, global/local??) Exact matching domain, no dashes or variations 3 articles, at least 300 words each. Backlinks... but from where (after this new panda update?) Biggest question, is what TOOLS/PROGRAMS do I need? I need to start with programs available here as downloads. I cannot afford to pay anything for any programs right now, but down the line I can reinvest income if needed. I am starting out with $30. That will pay for 3 domains. My expectations are to make at least $30 per month from these 3 domains, TOTAL, not EACH. Now, I need to know HOW to research keywords specifically for my micro-niche site plan.. Say for example I want to do a micro-niche site about how to blog. Do I go to the G Keyword tool, and enter "how to blog" and pick a related keyword from the list that populates? How do I know how much competition it has? How do I research it to know if it's going to be a good keyword that I can rank easily for and get the income I want? I am just starting out with the MNS idea, so please do not flame. I am asking advice from SEASONED MNS owners, people who have experience and won't make me waste my time. I need all of the best tips you can provide. If you do NOT wnt to post tips here in fear of them being abused or saturated, please do not hesitate to take a moment and send me tips via private message. I will not release any information that you send to me via PM, as PRIVATE messages are private for a reason. I appreciate the feedback, in advance. Good advice and advice that I will follow will earn thanks and rep.
