    Hi,

    I just had someone who create a micro niche site for me.

    Exact keyword is 580 (global searches), 480 (local searches) - CPC is 1.81185258 U.S. dollars

    Currently, i am ranked at page 9.

    I am wondering if the amount of revenue that i can gain is worth it if i invested $$ to pump seo to make the site page # (top 5)

    Any insights from experienced gurus?

    I am not sure, you can make much money from the seo site. 580 global searches is very low. You can make at most around 5-10$ per month.

    Are you just looking to invest time and money for a site which makes 5-10$ per month?

    might be worth getting no hands seo and just putting it in that and leaving it going since it will probably not be too hard to rank, then u can use it on other sites too

    It is hard to say not knowing what your competitions SEO looks like. Do they have a lot of backlinks and on site seo?

    Without knowing that I would recommend you do some seo yourself and see if it gets you moving. Start by making sure your on site seo is good. Then do some social bookmarking and some article writtings with your site in the authors box. That might get you moving some to see how tough the competition really is.

    Always try doing some seo yourself even if you think you don't have a chance. You never know those leading the niche right now may get hit with the next update and then you move right on up there.

    Just my thoughts on it.

    the first rule of thumb for Imers is not to invest and try to do everything yourself till you get a good cash flow. If you invest you will be lazy forever. You are saying people did a website for you, you just check ranking and thats it now you wanna hire more people to do seo for you. Do things yourself!!!!

    You shouldn't need to invest anything at all. Get yourself searching for high page rank blogs/posts and get manually commenting on sites that are related to your niche. Best way to get some serp boost and it cost's nothing.

    Don't worry about the searches, if you got your site earning $5-$!0 a month from that keyword alone, you then can target other smaller related keywords and start building it up even further, end of the day it all adds up, a site earning $100 a month from 50 keyword rankings would fetch you $1500 from flippa. so it's all worth it.

    Hi, by investment i meant investing time too. If i were to invest my time in enhancing it, will it be better to target another keyword and niche? aren't that be better?

    The main reason why people bother with mns sites is because it should be easy to rank. Shouldn't take much effort to get to the top 5 and probably will only make a few quid but that's why people that specialise in mns sites have hundreds of them.

    I think you should better concentrate on another site. This one seems to be a bit less profitable.

    Actually it will vary with your earning sources. If you want to use adsense then your revenue will not be so good. but if you can sell some related things then you can really get good benefit. because the visitors that you will get are really targeted. and you can drive them to your affiliate link easily.
    thanks

    What is the source for your 480 local searches? Does the kw have a geographical location in it, i.e. "Wisconsin Cheese"?

    The CPC is low, the volume is low and I wonder what the competition is like.

    I wouldn't invest much money in it, it doesn't have many searches. Do as someone else in this thread said and let No Hands SEO take care of it.

    Also it depends on the niche, if it's product based and you've got your affiliate links up you could make a bit of money. You probably won't make much off adsense ads alone.

    Hopefully you didn't pay too much for the site, usually MNS services offer at least 1-2k searches. If I were you I'd study the one you have now, and learn to make your own instead of buying them.

    If you are investing your time into it, it MIGHT be worth it.

    Personally, I find it better to concentrate on keywords with at least 1000 local searches, its just more payoff for you.
