In this guide, I will be sharing everything you need to build a Micro-niche site, and how you can earn a great deal of money from it.

What are Micro-niche Websites?

Micro-Niche websites are the perfect way to add some extra amount of money in your monthly income.  Niche websites are specific and targeted towards a micro-topic or keyword.

These websites do not exactly get a lot of traffic but they make more money in less traffic. One reason for the same is, you get quality targeted traffic, and they convert better than un-targeted traffic.

You can use any monetization techniques like- AdSense, ShareASale, Affiliate program, CPA or use it to sell eBooks.

An example for such micro niche sites are:

  • Hostgator Coupons
  • Cydia guide
  • Buy fake iPhone

There are a lot of things to be done before making a micro-niche website.  Simply making a website on a certain keyword is not going to do well.

You have to make sure that your niche website is going to earn money as expected else there is no point of making it.

Here I am going to explain a few things that you need to do and the success of your niche website will totally depend upon it.

Building a Profitable Micro Niche Site:

Few important point that you must understood are:

  1. The Right Keyword for Domain Name
  2. Primary Keyword of Your Website
  3. Niche Website Content Strategy
  4. Monetizing the Niche Website
  5. Google Ranking of your Niche website

The Right Keyword

The first step towards a successful M-niche website lies in its domain. A niche website is going to work perfectly only when you have the right keyword in your domain name. Finding the right SEO keyword can be tricky sometimes.

However, there are a lot of things from which you can easily pickup ideas to find the right keyword. For example, you can use Google trends, Google Instant, Online Ads, Magazines. They all give a lot of ideas.

In my view, these ideas can be of two types:

  • Local 
  • Global

Local simply means country specific i.e. topic will get most of the traffic from your own Country and Global means worldwide traffic. However, being global is always the right choice. Once you get the idea, it’s time to find the right domain name for it. I suggest you to use Google AdWords keyword tool for getting the keyword ideas.

Before you start searching for keyword to find your right domain name, here are few things that you must keep in mind:

  1. Limit the Global search to around 4K i.e. 4000 searches per month.
  2. Competition should be medium or high.

Now hit the search button. You will get many keywords. Select four or five out of them and search them in Google. Check the results on the first page. If the results appear from e-commerce websites such as eBay, Amazon, then skip the keyword.

If the results have very high ranking websites skip that keyword because there is no way that you can beat those websites with a new one.

If you see mostly blogs and websites of low ranking (Few of them will always be higher but that’s not going to effect ) and they don’t match the exact keyword in their title then register the domain name for your niche website.

Primary Keyword of Your domain name 

Your domain name is the primary keyword of your website. Your whole niche website revolves around your primary keyword. You will rank higher in Google search results for your primary keyword and that’s what our target is.  Next thing that you need to do is:

Niche Website Content Strategy

Content strategy is very important in order to regularly update your niche website and to gain traffic to other articles. Now its time to create more content on your niche website. Here is how you are going to do it..

  • Search for long tail keywords related to your primary keyword.
  • Write at least 15-20 secondary articles over the next 3-4 weeks.
  • The minimum word limit of these articles should be 350-400 words. More it is, better it is.
  • Interlink the articles very well. Take advantage of plugins like Rankmath, Linkwhisper, Yoast SEO Premium.
  • Articles should be 100% original and of the best quality.

Install Editorial calendar WordPress plugin, and schedule your content for the next 1-2 months. A regular flow of the article is important, to attain the authority.

Now your micro-niche website has a primary article which is your homepage and number of secondary articles targeting long tail keywords in Google searches. You can add more articles if the websites show better traffic results.

Monetizing the Niche Website

There are various ways to monetize your niche website. You need to choose one which can give you the maximum possible revenue. I mainly use these 3 ways to monetize my niche websites:

Since we have taken CPC as a factor while planning out the content strategy, AdSense will ensure a great profit for you. In fact, if you are getting the US, UK and traffic from Canada, then money earned will be much higher.  Along with this, you can pick a few related affiliate products to promote, and this will help you to earn more with your micro niche website.

Amazon affiliate program gives 4% commission in the beginning which usually increases up to 14% with an increasing number of sales. Choose which ever you like and it’s also easy to get the affiliate account. If you don’t have one, simply sign up for the account. It’s free.

Google Ranking of Your Niche Website

Google rolled out exact match domain penalty some time back, and it was targeted to penalize micro-niche Website with low-quality content. In our case, we are not building a low-quality website, rather we are building the profitable high-quality micro niche website. We have already done most of the task by writing quality content. Now, focus on improving the SEO of your micro-niche blog. Here are two guides, which will help you:

As you have a domain name with your primary keyword in it, It will give you a boost to rank up in Google quickly. Secondly, secondary articles will get traffic for long tail keywords. You will soon see some starting traffic on your website. Initially, no backlinks are required for the niche website because it’s targeted and specific. Having the primary keyword in the domain name has its own advantages and it’s one of them.

Now, to further boost the ranking of your Website, here are a few things that you could do:

Visit websites of the same niche as yourself and comment on something useful related to the blog post. Comment on at least 20-25 websites over 1-2 weeks. It will give generate some backlinks for your niche website helping it to rank better and get more traffic.

Conclusion: Your rank and traffic will get better over time. The niche website will generate more revenue in less traffic as the chosen keyword has a high CPC as already explained. You will also get much other long tail keyword traffic.

Niche website will also get few sales if you monetized with affiliate accounts. So if you are planning to make one or if you are already working on a niche website, do share your experience right here.

    1. Go for it. It’s really beneficial. Few people in my circle are making more money through Micro Niche sites than their main websites.

  2. Hi Satyendra

    Is Micro Niche Sites are long game is they are not affected by Google updates ( Google panda , penguin ) ?

    hi satyendra…nice post…i had heard earlier of micro-niche websites…a friend of mine on facebook is making a lot of money primarily due to these kind of websites…i think i will give it a try in the near future…but creating one requires a lot of research as you explained but in the end it all finally pays off! πŸ™‚

  4. Nice Post Satyendra. I was looking forward to start micro niche site for web hosting products. But I think that its better to monetise micro niche sites with direct ads and affiliate marketing rather than Adsense.

  5. Hi Satyendra,

    You have written a really resourceful article here. I had to get it bookmarked for future references. Its pretty hard to get the required info when required and you have covered the most information to give anyone’s research a guide and keep them in the track. However I was wondering why you forgot to use a gravtar for yourself.

  12. Wonderful post and yes niche sites are great and quick way to make money once your blog lands on the first page of google you will see the magic if you have non technical blog readers then best choice is using google adsense you can make lots of money, I have done it in the past and now I am working on my niche sites if it ranks well I can make handsome amount of money, I cannot disclose the domain name ( personal choice ) but I will definitely have success.

  13. Ayush Chandra

    This is a perfect strategy to start a micro niche blog, really thankful to you for sharing this whole plan. After doing keyword research on more relevant topics, i was surprised to see the large amount of searches for them. What’s better than to convert visitors into customers, and work less & earn extra dollars for a period of time.

  14. what about the domain name? someone told me that he get the domain name for micro niche for few days only, what does that mean?
    for eg. is it possible to get a mother’s day related domain right before mother’s day for few days only?
    if not then what will be use of that micro niche domain name when the topic will fade away?

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      @Vaibhav
      What you are talking about is Event blogging, which is a different concept. It’s like blogging for a particular season, and after that your blog is gone.

  15. Google adsense poilcy requires that site must be atleast 6 months old. On these new micro-niche sites, how soon can we place ads -6 months or earlier?

    1. jagmeet singh

      Sapna g if you have non hosted adsense account then you can place ads on your any site no age limit for this ok..

  16. Hello harsh!
    Good post.Presently I am working on a micro-niche site and let’s see what works and what does not.

  17. Hello Satyendra!! First of all I would like to tell you that have written a detailed article, thanx for it… I have heard from one of my friend that micro niche sites are different from event sites, can you please elaborate the difference and what is the estimate age of these sites in terms of earning??

  18. Hai, Satyendra Pandey, your idea is too good. I have some questions for you about the selection of domain names. For making micro niches is it necessary to buy new domain name? or Can i use sub-domain of my blog? If I use sub domain what are the pros and cons? can you please mention which good….
