Earning money online is possible if you dedicate yourself to your goal. Earning an income certainly isn’t easy, you have to force yourself to take action.

My 25x Keywords:
Okay here comes the fun part. The keywords i am targeting and why i am targeting these keywords. I am taking a shot gun approach towards my keyword research. Why? Because there are too much uncertainties in niche sites. You never know what you will get out of it. These are the reasons why i am taking a shot gun approach:
Account for losers.
80% of your sites might be losers and not earning money at all. This is a fact based on my experience and what i heard from other niche site creators.
The site may be relatively easy to rank but the CPC is so low that you are making a few cents a click.
Google algorithm update.
The biggest niche site killer. You might be making $100 today and make $0.01 cent tomorrow just because your website just tanked from a google update. This is harsh reality for niche site creators, the key is to never give up!
Time to reveal my 25x research keywords!

Quick summary of columns above.
Site Number: Numbering system for the site
Main keyword: Main keyword that i am targeting (does not include the secondary keywords)
Domain: The domain for the site. Mainly PMD or EMD
Local month searches: Search volume per month for the Keyword
CPC: Cost per click
KC: Keyword Competitiveness as founded in Longtail Pro platinum
Rank: Site Ranking in Google as of 3rd Nov 2013
NR: not ranked
As you can see above, some of the sites has started rank without building any links at all! Some of the sites is already ranking in top 20 – 30s. This is the result of a good keyword research. You don’t need to build any links at all if you did your keyword right. Likewise, if you start link building from your private blog network, it will help tremendously for ranking.
I deliberately try not to link my domains here, but if you highlight copy and paste and go to the URL, you can see how i setup my micro niche sites live. The sites are simple wordpress 5 articles setup, 400-500 words, all unique content. 1 page targeting Main Keyword, and 4 other page targeting the secondary keywords.
Analyzing Competition on Long Tail Platinum
I am not going into details of how and why I chose my keywords. Sometimes even though the KC value in longtail platinum gives a high value like 40+ , i still like to go for it because i see a weak point or i feel that i can outrank the top 10 results. Some guidelines for choosing good keywords:
- Low KC value in Long tail Platinum
- Micro Niche Sites ranking in the top 10 results
- No exact match domains in the Top 10
- Low quality content in the top 10 results
- Yahoo answers /hubpages
- Youtube channel ranking
- Pin interest page ranking.
- Low link juice on the top 10 sites
- Relative new sites ranking (check this on site age)
- High search volume but low CPC or Low search volume but high CPC
Link building from Private blog network is the next stage. I will showing you how I link build from my 21x PBN for these 25 micro niche sites.
