Hello Warriors!

So I run a small company and had some money (not alot) to invest so I decided to start investing into some passive income ventures. You have to speculate to accumulate right? So after some research I decided that it would be best to hire someone instead of doing it myself because I am quite a busy person.

I'm sure some of you have been looked at the classified area and there are many companies selling microniche webites. They all make great promises but which one is the best? So I decided to put them to the test.

This is my journal and so I can look back and see which one was the best. Ofcourse the best one will be receiving more of my money for future investments.

Here is what I bought

Baby Package (5 sites) @ $140
(Username: Aryan)
http://www.warriorforum.com/complete...ws-inside.html

Shark Package (6 sites) @ $180
(Username: entri3)
http://www.warriorforum.com/complete...promotion.html

3 sites + 1 free one @ $297 (Username: DavidParnell)
http://www.warriorforum.com/complete...potential.html

5 sites @ $350 (Username: ebizpromo)
http://www.warriorforum.com/complete...0-ranking.html

25 sites @ $649 but I will only compare the Top 5 Sites (5 sites @ $150) for the sake of this contest (Username: sterday)

      Excellent thread Wallace. I look forward to reading about how it goes for you. I wish more people would do this and give totally honest feedback about their experiences.

      I looked into some of these micro niche packages a while back but the examples were all trademark/copyright infringement which put me off. Haven´t looked at them again since then but would like to start an adsense portfolio as currently all my sites are geared around lead generation which is very hands on and time consuming (although very profitable.)

      You should get a blog up and running about it. They become very popular and can be monetized if you have enough readers. There is one I started reading a while back about two internet marketers who have been incredibly successful. There is no bull**** at all. No hype -. nothing. Just an honest breakdown of what they have tried, whats worked for them and what hasn't. They don´t update it much these days but have a read through their blog posts for ideas - I found it VERY inspirational!

    andy that is a GREAT IDEA!!! as long as I post the earnings without the CTR and Clicks I won't be violating The Big G's TOS right?

  • Profile picture of the author andyintheworld
    I think that's the rules - yeah.

    If any of these packages work well, I´ll maybe buy some myself. I have a lump of cash sitting waiting to be invested too! Just don´t have time to fling sites up myself anymore so need to outsource most things now.

    People appreciate honestly - and its in short supply when it comes to internet marketing!!!

    Anybody have any good suggestions for organizing these providers. For example can I set a channel for Provide A and then have his sites in a sub channel?

    I contacted other providers so I might spend more than $1500, but my goal is to recoup my investment within 5 months. Especially after reading their pitches it seems possible...

    Hey, thanks for starting this thread - it's actually reminded me that it's about time I outsourced some site building. I can do it all myself, and have done many times, but just have no TIME. However, if someone has a good service, with well-researched niches and half-decent content (which I can possibly improve on), I can handle the SEO side of things and get the things ranking. So I will definitely be interested to hear your results, although I am sure all these warriors provide a great service (hey, they are probably outsourcing most of it too, let's not forget!)

    This is awesome I just bought Aryan baby package and I think I will try others too. thanks a lot.

    However, I want to warn everyone who plan to integrate your MNS with web Analytics and web Master tools. I read on some posts and experience myself that Google will use them monitor your MNS as result my sites traffic suddenly drop 70% after I remove them from my sites I don't know it relevant or not but becareful mates. I'm very sad now.

    I'm starting to receiving some keywords and nice looking EDM's...but I see a few ones that are trademarked, is this ok? my gut feeling tells me its not...

      Sigh... I dunno - it's an easy way to get a lot of untapped niches and EMDs, but I don't like it (even though I have a few myself). For one thing, you COULD get in trouble from a manufacturer, though you could search here Chilling Effects Clearinghouse: Search the Database to see if the particular manufacturer has a history of serving C&Ds - many do not, you would be surprised.

      But the other thing that concerns me with these is that they are not very evergreen. I mean, products come and go, some of them only have a lifecycle of a year at most. When I go to the trouble of building and ranking a site I want it to keep bringing me the same level of sales years down the line, you know what I mean...

      Can anyone tell me if the sites the different services build are based on wordpress or just html templates?

        I think they all pretty much use Wordpress. I wouldn't really want to buy a site that wasn't, most people want to be able to expand the site later.

    great link! I have been running some searches and have already found some C&D's...another thing is I run an authority site and someone registered an .net and it really ticked me off so it would almost be a given of a MNS had a trademarked name in the domain...

    wwallace1 from what you know from all providers, how many pageviews a day we should expect from a miro niche site. mind is around 40views/day after 6 weeks online.

    We've been doing the niche site thing for the past 6 months and have had some pretty strong results. We just broke $100 in a day for the first time yesterday (Woo-Hoo!) and are averaging around $84/day for June so far.

    We give away our process and our thoughts on our site:
    AdSense Flippers | AdSense Sites | Micro Websites | Selling Sites | Internet Businesses For Sale

    It's interesting as we get further into this...there are SOOO many people making virtually nothing with AdSense and it sounds a bit discouraging, but the deeper we go the more we're able to find people with sites describing their experiences that are doing quite well. We give income reports on our site to show you exactly how much we're making, how we're making it, etc. and there are others that do this as well.

    Best of luck!

    entri3 told me about G's Algorithm change that says all articles should be 600-800 words but his WSO only provides them of 300 words. So he wants me to pay more...but I feel like this is an upsell and not fair to the other WSO's competing. Any thoughts anybody?

      Point 1 :- 300+ content is enough to rank the site if its theme based content and unique with supporting articles.

      Point 2 :- if he things there should be 500 words article needed then he should have added that in the package before because last google algo was changed in starting feb its not a new update.

      so i think service provider has to be transparent .

    Best of luck! Keep a budget for linkbuilding and content creation as well. It'll help your sites in the long run and you'll be sure to recoup that investment! Otherwise the sites may not get very far.

    Can't wait to read more! Let us know of the progress.

    Looks like a nice review thread. I bought Micro Niche Sites from few above sellers. I rate Sterday (Buy money making Micro Niche Adsense Websites from Professional Site Builders.) as #1. He rocks at other forums too.

    Can you please update the current progress?
