A micro niche website is somewhat still the same as regular websites, however, they focus on just one topic.
When we say just one topic, it means the website contains only information about it. For instance, you create a website that primarily discusses just the very specific topic of “brake pads for Toyota Prius”.
This is a micro niche site because it only provides relevant information on one specific product; it is about brake pads, and not just any brake pads, ones that are used for the Toyota Prius specifically.
Why Do You Need A Micro Niche Blog?
Thanks to all of the numerous algorithmic changes that Google made on its search engines, it is now much easier for niche websites to rank higher up in the search results as compared to the websites that are non-targeted.
This means that when you create a high-quality website that is about any topic, you have much higher chances of ranking higher in the search results compared to any of the already existing websites out there.
And more traffic means more Google AdSense revenue.
In addition, you do not have to go through all of the trouble just to keep your blog evergreen. You just need to put in a lot of work at the beginning, particularly in the creation of your content.
After that, you just have to wait for the money to come rolling in.
How to Make Your Own Successful Micro Niche Site?
Step 1 – Find Your Niche
The first, and the most important thing to do is for you to find your niche. Your niche should be about something that you are at least familiar with, and most importantly, you are comfortable writing about.
In addition, you need to think about how your niche will perform in the future; does it have potential to become popular?
Since you will be mostly making money through the use of Google AdSense, you need to choose a niche topic that is popular in the US and in the UK.
You also have to make sure that the topic has a high cost-per-click (CPC).
For instance, if you are fond of growing and taking care of succulents, you can use that as your topic. The reason I suggested that topic is because it is quite interesting, the keywords about it are not that saturated yet, and there will always be people interested in growing these plants as a hobby.
To find out the specs of your niche, like its CPC, popularity, saturation, and others, there are plenty of online tools that you can use, like Longtail Pro.
If you need to do a bit of research on effective keywords, you can use SEMrush, or other tools that work similar to it.
The great thing about SEMrush is that you can get insights from other popular websites as well; you can use this tool to check out the stats of a particular website, like what keywords it is already ranking for.
Now that you have a niche, and a couple of related keywords that you can use to optimize the website, the next logical step is to procure your own domain name.
Since you will be creating a micro niche site, you need to have your keyword inside the domain name.
You should also add a bit of flair to it by adding words like “growers”, “lovers”, “central”, “101”, and so on.
For instance, if your keyword is succulents, a good website name would be “succulentscentral.com”
Step 2 – Researching Keywords
Of all the steps involved in building a micro niche site, this probably takes much longer to finish.
However, you will find that all of the hard work you invested here will pay off someday.
You will most likely be coming up with dozens of keywords, so it is best to use a spreadsheet program so you can keep your research organized and easy to understand.
When planning your content, you need to take a couple of things into consideration, like:
- What topics would be in demand for the longest time?
- What keywords are driving the most traffic and have a respectable CPC?
To make things a bit easier, you could make a mindmap of keyword content, something that looks like an FAQ.
- What is (your chosen topic)?
- Benefits of (your chosen topic)
- How to install/use (your chosen topic)
- Important Facts about (your chosen topic)
- Why (your chosen topic) is Important
…and so on.
Once you have a basic idea on your research, you can then use SEMrush (or any similar tool) to go into more detail. As mentioned earlier, you can also use SEMrush to find out what keywords the more successful websites use, and then you can choose to use some of them yourself, or maybe an iteration of them.
Step 3 – Setting Up the Micro Niche Site
It is actually quite easy to create your own website, you just need to use any of the free blogging websites out there. Create a free account, set it up with all of the necessary plugins and themes, and then upload your first few bits of content.
Aside from the usual theme tweaking of the blog site, you can also consider the following:
- Make the SEO of the blog as perfect as you can.
- Make sure that you only upload high-quality content and do not overstuff them with keywords.
- Create a couple of YouTube videos that are related to your content and link the blog in the video descriptions. Not only will this funnel more traffic into the website, it will also create backlinks, thereby improving the site’s SEO.
- Submit your sitemap to all of the major search engines (not just Google).
- Create a logo for your website.
The idea for making a micro niche site is so you only have to work hard during the setup and launch period, and then watch as the site starts to earn money.
You do not even have to invest that much time on your brand.
The reason why micro niche websites work is because they get great internet traffic, they provide useful solutions, and they make money quickly with minimal effort.
