The ideal adsense niche microsite

Can anyone give me some examples of well-designed niche microsites please?

I have a one page adsense site at the moment, which I have ranked well and which is getting decent traffic, but a very low CTR of 3%.

The site is pretty plain, and content was outsourced, it's only one page and 4 paragraphs. However it is useful and easy to read information. It's just not converting well so I'd really like to see some small adsense sites..

Thanks,
Jason

      I don't do Adsense sites myself, but thought I'd offer a suggestion.

      What about adding more content? If you only have 4 paragraphs then I imagine your site must have a pretty high bounce rate.

      More quality content that engages your visitors should keep them on your page longer AND give you more Adense revenue opportunities.

      Maybe a good video will keep them on your page longer, and give the viewer that bit longer to notice the ads.

    You asked too vague a question to get a good answer. What is considereed a well-designed niche microsite? Its too subjective. Also, revealing CTR is against adsense TOS. Also, responsiveness to ads is differnt in every niche and every site so very hard to tell you waht is good and not. so you kind of have to do some trial and error. but there is lots of adsense optimised themes that boast high CTR you might give them a try. Also, many threads in this forum with people discussing how they have increased their CTR. You might give that a search.

    Why don't you go to the many people here selling micro niche sites and ask for a sample from each one?

  • You can also go to Flippa and check out some of the auctions with revenue.

    Well the ideal niche website for applying adsense, would be niches like that of celebrities, sports, fashion and so on....

    Sorry for the ambiguity of my title and OP.

    Thanks for the replies though. Was planning to just try to increase CTR as much as possible then flip the site. Might add another article or two and a video to increase the value of the site and hopefully help out with adsense.

    Thanks,
    Jason

  • MFA sites do not last... why would they? You pull in visitors who immediately leave. How does this create value for Adversiters... it doesn't! Google has a way of catching up to these sites and banning the accounts.

    You have to ask yourself if you would create the site if Adsense didn't exist, if the answer is no then you have an MFA site. And failure is right around the corner. If you are going to build something make it worth visting... them put on Adsense and you'll make money over the long haul.
