In his post I am going to give you a few micro niche site examples. These websites are targeting a micro-topic or keyword and tend to make more money from less traffic. One reason for the same is, you get quality targeted traffic, and they convert better than untargeted traffic.
Example #1: Domain Flipping
DomainFlippingGuide.org ranks on the first page for this keyword. The site actually has a decent traffic potential.
The entire site consists of one single page, plus the basic pages like About Us, Contact Us.
Here are the SERP results:
Example #2: SSL Certificates
The website SSL for Free has only one function: To generate an SSL certificate.
Example #3: FunnelXpert.com
Yes, this site could be considered a micro niche site.
If you look at my income report, you will see that the entire blog is built around the Thrive Themes and ClickFunnels affiliate programs.
Example #4: PixieFaire
When the daughter of Cinnamon and Jason, the owners of Pixie Faire, turned six, they realized how obsesses she is with dolls and their outfits.
This lead to the start of Pixie Faire, an e-commerce site selling doll clothing patterns
But their passion goes beyond dolls and design. They’re dedicated to serving their community of amazing collectors and sewists by showcasing their work and offering a wide range of how-to projects and sewing patterns!
They also started selling online courses on knitting and sewing doll clothes, physical patterns and clothing items.
Estimated Monthly Traffic: 88K
Avg. Visit Duration 03:54
Bounce Rate 47.04%
Example #7: HostingAdvice.com
HostingAdvice.com was created by a team of real web experts who have a combined 54 years of experience in web hosting. From sites with millions of visits to small personal projects, their programmers and tech managers spend thousands of dollars monthly on a wide variety of hosting services.
It is a review site that has been built very strategically. Take a look at the menu – very obvious that a detailed keyword research was done to cover every single aspect of hosting with the top companies in that category. Each one links to a detailed review.
Estimated Monthly Traffic: 247.31K
Avg. Visit Duration 1:23
Pages per Visit: 1.52
Bounce Rate: 69.59%
Example #6: Popular sites
This may be surprising to you, but there are many popular sites that you wouldn’t think of as a micro niche site, but if you look at the narrowness of their subject, they are built on the same principle.
NameSilo.com – The only thing they focus on is domains. How micro is that? Their entire knowledge base is on that subject, detailing everything about transferring, purchasing, auctioning domains, DNS records, etc. (The same applies to other domain registrars.)
ExpiredDomains.net – They only do one thing – list expired domains and they get commissions if someone clicks on a link and registers/buys a domain.
Flippa.com – They buy & sell domains
EstiBot.com – They estimate domain value.
The difference between these popular sites and the sites in the previous section is just one thing: These sites have a crapload of backlinks and therefore they have become popular brands and attract a lot more traffic.
However in reality there isn’t any other difference.
When you start a new micro niche site, you start out in the first category and your goal is to end up in the second one.
