When last we left in Update 9, I announced at the end of the post that I had just launched a brand new niche website. This one was going to micro-niche site meaning that it will have less than 10 pages of content. I’ve read a number of stories now about people who have created such sites and been able to make $100 or so per month from them. Plus 10 pages of content is extremely easy to create, upload, and then build links back to. Seems like a sure-thing, right?
And so how’s that going? Terrible! … and I’m happy with that. Yeah, you read that correctly. I’m okay with NS3 performing terribly (for now) because I’m still getting a lot of value out the experiment. Here are the reasons why and what I plan to do about it:
I’m pleased to inform everyone that things are still going pretty well for my small niche website portfolio. To quickly recap my last update, I had just revealed my second niche site launch (called NS2), provided a full run-down of all the activities and links I built to it, and then gladly reported that it was already ranking No. 4 in the Google search results for the exact match keyword.
Well, another month has passed and I have some more developments to share. First I am going to compare NS2 to the achievements of my first niche site (NS1), and then give some critiques for both. And if you stick around long enough, I’ve also got another surprise for you…
I’ve got some terrific news: My new niche website (NS2) is currently ranking on the first page of Google at #4 for my main target keyword!
Believe it or not, this comes as a great accomplishment to me because it means that all the tricks and things I learned through the first niche site do in fact work! This is also very exciting news to me because if I consider how much my first niche site (NS1) makes in terms of a modest residual income every month from the advertising, I now just DOUBLED my income potential! Can you imagine how much money I could be making after experiencing success with perhaps 5 of these types of sites? The possibilities are endless!
If you’ve noticed a slow down on the posting frequency here at My Money Design, first let me apologize. I don’t value my readers any less. No, instead something big has been happening behind the scenes. I gave myself a deadline of the end of June to launch my next niche website.
And you know what? I did it!
Unfortunately after many attempts, my niche website has still not broken into the ultra competitive Top 10 in the Google search engine results (SERP) for my main keyword. While some may call that a disappointment (since the goal for most money earning sites is to make it to No. 1 and start generating revenue), I’m not completely sure that all hope is lost just yet. I have noticed a few very interesting things that put a little bit of sunshine over my situation. Let’s take a look at them:
