    I've made a little bit of money in IM thanks to BHW. Some CPA methods brought in a little cash, but not too much. FB ads and article marketing CB products worked, but I feel it's time I devote myself to an authority website as it seems a lot of people are making great money with these. I started thinking I would make a few MNS, but while doing my keyword research I found a list of 9 keywords within the same niche, ranging from 1,300 to 12,100 exact local monthly searches, with CPC ranging from 0.30-0.82, and very little competition. So I've decided to try out authority sites. monetize with adsense and maybe CB. There is only 1 CB product that I found within this niche, and the landing page looks a little spammy, so I might not even do that.

    This will be my start. Along with this authority site, I found another list of 7 KW with ELMS ranging 1,300-6,600 and CPC 0.45-0.96, with little competition. More competition than the 1st niche, but still not too much. So after I get the first site established I will work on this second niche.

    I also have a list of about 10-15 KW that would be good for MNS, so I might start a few of them, but they wont be the primary focus. Buying domain and hosting for authority site 1. Wish me luck guys ;)

    Got the domain and hosting today.
    KW phrase, lets say it's xxxyyy, I got xxx-yyy.org. Best I could do. xxxyyy.com is on page 1 of Google, #5 on the page, and according to majestic only has 3 backlinks from 2 different domains. This KW phrases gets 9,900 exact local monthly searches and a CPC of 0.41, so I'm really excited that my competition is so low. :D
    Outsourced some articles today, I should have them in the next day or so. Then I'll start posting and building backlinks. Manually at first, but I might end up buying a linking package. Anyone have any recommendations for that?
