Thanks to Springer, who shared the following link in another thread about minisites, which I thought was worth more attention/ discussion. The link is from a forum principally about internet marketing 6 Months Later: $300 Daily w/Adsense (Lessons Learned) The author of the post 'shares' his blueprint for minisite success. I thought it was very interesting, but at 32 pages long it took me a few evenings to get through it. Its well worth the read and I think a lot of forum members will be encouraged by it. In broad terms the post proposes............ 1.) pick a niche that is not over exploited, but has reasonable search traffic 2.) build a simple minisite, with up to 20 pages about the topic and monetise with Adsense 3.) write articles and submit them to article databases such as Go Articles with author link back to site 4.) keep at it until the site ranks well, i.e. first few top spots in Google for that keyword Move on to the next domain and start again. Anything from 25 - 100 sites in exploitable niches means you can give up your day job. Obviously there is more to it, but for those of us that have been developing sites for a while, there is not that much more to it. Its a very time consuming strategy, and many people have argued in other forums that spending the same length of time on a smaller number of authority sites may be more profitable. Has anyone else read the thread? What do you think?
