A few years ago I’ve made a lot of money from developing micro niche blogs and targeting long tail keywords that nobody targeted.
I simply used to develop a lot of content, rank for top 3 positions for every keyword in that micro niche (usually no more then 30) and just living off Google Adsense as well as selling dofollow links or even banners (if I had enough traffic).
As soon as I started losing ranks I would flip the website and sell it to someone else. It was a good system. I used to host my entire web sites on the blogspot platform but having implemented my own custom domains like .com, .net or .info so I virtually paid nothing for hosting, I was hosted by Google. Made things a lot easier when I finally sold the website, I just had to transfer the domain to a new owner and make someone else administrator on the blog’s blogspot account.
Recently I’ve tried doing the same thing all over again. Found a micro-niche on health. My wife had some problems I won’t get into right now, but lets she is good now and I’ve learned a lot of stuff about her problem.
I’ve searched online and found very little information on this subject, all of it scattered on multiple websites. So I decided to re-implement one of my old micro niche blog techniques all over again. Things, I’ve added a few great articles, much bigger than my competition and I never made it past page 2. Were these techniques over-used and now Google doesn’t rank them good anymore or what?
Do you think I should create even more content and invest even more time? Does it all worth it in the end? I think the average monthly searches for all the keywords I can rank for is about 1000 searches. That leaves me with about 300 potential visits per month…
What do you think?
