    I've been reading the BHW forums, and have been wanting to make a useful contribution for awhile. Micro-Niche ad-sense websites are not a bad way to start off to make some money on the internet. One thing I always dis-liked about creating them, is the research involved in creating quality content. Unique content is king, you see it written all over these forums.

    I was writing a few articles when I noticed a few of my old college essays. One was a research paper written on an important topic regarding the environment (not going in to specifics because I've used it to create a site). I loaded up the good ole' google adwords keyword tool to check competition, searches, etc and found that the keywords were paying around .80-2.50 per click, had okay competition, and a decent amount of searches per month. I then did some intitle and inurl seo searches in google and found that my keywords had good numbers.

    My essay about 3,000 words long, thats 5 + articles depending on how I decide to split up the word count / paragraphs into the articles. I can even optimize the articles for seo as needed.

    Conclusion:

    Sometimes your college essays can contain great keywords for micro-niche ad sense sites. Take the time to go through them, and you may find a few gems for easy content.

    No problem, just kinda stumbled upon the idea. All those useless research papers you had to do just became useful haha

    Darnit, after checking adwords and spyfu, it seems "Ranging and localization for Wireless Communications - Localization using Noisy Measurements" will not be a profitable niche :(

    Well at least I learned something doing my thesis..

    ....oh wait

    Yeah I did that about a year ago with 5 of my papers. They're getting decent searches for obscure subject matter. Doesn't make any cash though. Most of the traffic is probably from students doing research for their papers:)
