    I stumbled upon a really interesting niche phrase last week.
    I registered an EMD (exact match domain) .com yesterday.
    Google searches for the [exact]: 1300 global, 800 local (usa)

    Today I:
    • installed wordpress
    • did some very minimal on page SEO (h1 tags, alternate text on photos, that's it!)
    • loaded some free plugins
    • updated the ping list
    • posted ten backlinks by hand.
    • created some simple, keyword packed content that is relevant and useful
    • Installed a content locker for the juicy content (I use content locker pro)
    • xml sitemap submission to google, yahoo, bing
    • Added 3 offers for the content locker where incentives are allowed

    So far I've spent about an hour working on this.

    Earnings so far: 0
    Expenses so far: 10 dollars for the domain.
    (a little more for the content locker, but I already use this on dozens of other sites, and there are free alternatives, and other ways to monetize)

    I'm not expecting to make a lot of money with this.
    I am expecting to make a good thread to discourage people from coming up with more and more excuses to not work, and encourage people who are on the fence about IM.
    Even if your work is going to suck, just get to it. It will get better.

    I'll update every few days. :)

    If it's such a small niche, can you make it a case study and reveal all the statistics and the website too?

    No, I'm not going to reveal the niche or the website.
    A good lesson I learned a long time ago is to not share this kind of stuff.

    Let's face it... every last one of you is a potential competitor. :)

    Yes we are :)

    But you can share the stats of the site like position and hits?

    i will repeat my words that i usually say at such threads: i havent run yet on live succesfull folllow me thread that make profit in the end
    i made similar thread, climbed with emd to no1 and i am there for at elast 1 month, but i was not able to make Profit
    but i learned what to expect from 1000, 5000 or 10000 keywords from adsense point of view

    but i tried on client surfer friendly way with friendly ads (adsense and amazon)...perhaps its time to try something like you are trying...content locker...i am going to read about it...the ugly way :)

    You put a locker on it. Does that imply if they search the kw you are targeting, they won't find the content (that is on your site) easily on other sites?

    Do you use any tool to look for niches?

    It looks like google can see the content on the page, just not a user. The users won't be able to see the content if they don't complete the offers.

    Yes, you may.

    unfortunately, I won't answer. :)

    I will say that content locking works better where a user is desperate for an answer....

    Update...

    Mid week I went from page 3, to page 6. Now I'm on page 4. I was really pissed, because this should have been super, super easy to rank.

    I had a friend of mine google the exact keywords I'm going for, and I popped up on number one. On page one.

    Then I checked my tracking codes for this site... I've made about 30 dollars so far. :)

    I haven't added any more content, and I haven't added any more backlinks.
    I plan on branching this out to focus on other keywords, related phrases, long tail keywords, etc...
