As I mentioned in my previous article, The Thin Affiliate Site Experiment using Micro Niche Finder, I recently purchased Micro Niche Finder and I wanted to crank out some thin eBay sites and see if they would convert. So, in August I bought ten new domains and I cranked out 10 eBay Niche Stores using phpBay and the wordpress Search2Post plugin. I'll talk more about Search2Post in a coming post, but let me just say right now that it's seriously changed the way I create Niche sites.
My goal with these sites was to target small niches that would require NO BACKLINKS. I'm freaking tired of making backlinks for all my niche stores. I just want something I can crank out and leave it there. Sure, it's not going to make buckets of money, but as long as it makes enough money to pay for the domain registration and compensate me for my 20 minutes of time, then I'm fine. I expect all of these sites to be profitable after 2-3 months of being indexed. The best part about this strategy is that I can just rinse and repeat and not look back.
So, with the help of Micro Niche Finder, I found 10 keyword combinations that I could easily rank on with absolutely no backlinks. I put a little bit of Adsense and maybe some Amazon (using phpZon Pro) and then moved on to the next site. These sites all got indexed in late August or early September and at the end of September I've made $47.32 total on them. That averages out to 4.73 per site per month. And, keep in mind that many of these sites weren't indexed at all at the start of September. So, what we are looking at here is a worst case scenario. I fully expect these sites to make $10-15/month for quite some time with out any more support from me. So, now it's just a case of how many I can crank out. And, with a site taking me roughly 20 minutes, things are starting to look pretty sunny.
What's so great about this is that there a loads of ways to make money using Micro Niche Finder (in fact, check out these videos which shows your 5 different ways to make money), I just picked the one I was most comfortable with and went to town!
