  • First Chapter
  • Second chapter
  • Third Chapter

Last year, I started off my career in blogging. And, throughout the time, I came across many things that awe-struck my mind. And, one of them was a "building and ranking a micro niche site".

I read few guides regarding "building a micro-niche site" however, I didn’t understand the scenario. Now, I don't know whether it was me who was dumb or the articles which didn't explain it well

Anyway, throughout the time with a lot of hustling, I learned the process, and right now micro niche sites are my main sources of income, yeah! It may sound ridiculous, but micro-niche is a beautiful way to fuel up your blogging career.

Building an authority site is comparatively tough as compared to building a micro-niche site. And, the reason is obvious behind it. Thus, building a micro-niche blog is always a good idea.

So, today I’ll burst the tips and tactics wide open so that you can fuel up your blogging career by building a micro niche site. I’ve aligned everything accordingly, as you can see in tabbed content at the top. It will both of us to stay focused.

So, let’s get into the main topic..

1

What Are Micro Niche Sites

Micro Niche sites are the sites that are solely focussed on a single keyword, sometimes even more. These sites don’t get a massive traffic however they have the tendency to generate a good amount of money with laser targeted audience.

And, the blogs that are solely focussed a micro topic tend to rank quickly on search engines because they cover only a single topic over the time. And, Google & other search engine loves it. For example,

  • Best gaming laptops
  • cat name suggestion
  • whey protein reviews
  • wifi router reviews
  • Best Dog Food

Micro Niche Sites Examples- Niche Ideas

Still, if you've got a confusion that how a micro niche site looks alike, then don't worry because I've got a list of real Amazon based niche sites. Don't think to build a niche site on the same subject since they already have established themselves as an authority and you'll have a tough time beating them in SERPs.

Why should you Build a Micro Niche Site?

There are few reasons why I love Micro-Niche sites. And, I'm alone managing 5 Micro Niche blogs and 3 of them is already ranking on the first page and 2 of them I've just launched, however, they are under top 7- Didn't work more than 5 hours on each.

1) Easy to rank on search engines than regular blogs.

2) Affiliate based blogs convert well~ If done properly.

3) Don't need huge traffic to make bucks~ It's all about targeted Audience.

4) Easy to set up, less work and quick results~ saves your time.

How To Find Profitable Keywords For Your Niche Sites

Now that you know what are micro niche websites and how do they work. It's the time to move one step ahead.

Selecting a niche/keyword is one of the crucial factors. If you choose a niche that is way competitive or has no potential, then there is no point of proceeding further.

Let me tell you; A niche site is all about the keyword/s you select. If you mess up there, then nobody can help you in any way. You'll end up making another niche site- Another One!

Yeah, you'll definitely learn something from your mistakes but what's the point of wasting few months of your life? So, stick with me and find out how you can discover profitable keywords for your next micro niche site.

Things you should consider during keyword research

Before you begin with keywords research, there are few things to keep in mind otherwise everything will be messed up & you'll have nothing in the hands.

1. Monetization Method: First of all, you need to decide what kind of niche you want to begin with. Either an Ads based micro niche site or affiliate based site.

Otherwise, you would not be able to find a niche until and unless it's your lucky day. Once you decide it, then the real process begins. I'll explain to you why I said that in the next point.

2. Keyword Intent: As I told you, You should decide what kind of monetization model your niche site will have because metrics will change according to it.

If you're going to make an affiliate based micro niche site, then even 1000 or 500 searches could be enough to earn decent money, depending on the price and commission.

However, if you want an Adsense based website, then 500 or 1000  monthly searches would not be enough until and unless you're targeting very very high CPC keyword.

So, the point is that decide your monetization model. If you're going with an affiliate, then even few searches can do the magic. On the other hand, if you want to build an Adsense based niche website, then consider at least 10,000 searches (medium or low CPC)

How To Find a Seed Keyword

Let's say I want to build an affiliate based site, alright? Then what I'll do is I'll start off with "buyer intent keywords." If you've no idea how to find seed keywords, then worry not. I'll help you out.

There are a couple of methods, but the best one that helps is "Awareness." If you know what is going on around you, then you'll be able to come up with some seed keywords. 

Start looking at the things around you and you'll wonder what the heck I was doing so far. Anyways, let's start off! Let me think about a keyword (awareness)

It took me few seconds; I decided affiliate as a monetization model. I came up with a topic/Keyword "Desk Lamps." See I did the same thing, just looking at the things around me, not boasting about myself, though!

Heading off to Google Keyword Planner With My Seed Keyword

Now that I have a keyword in my mind thus I'm heading off to Google Webmaster. I'll plug-in my main keyword and will show you the results I've got.

Here is the result I've got for my seed keyword "Desk Lamp." It has got 33,100 searches, excellent!

micro niche site

At the same time, I clicked on "Ad Group Ideas" tab to get the list of more seed keywords. And, I got very very potential keywords with a good amount of searches. 

Here is the image from my "Ad Group Ideas" tab.

micro niche site keywords

Keyword Potential- Not All Keywords Are Productive

Like I said before, you need to understand the keyword intent, i.e., user behavior. Does people looking to buy or to learn something. Take a look at my keyword again, "Desk Lamp."

It may have got decent searches, but the competition is above 40. Therefore, it's not worth trying because we can find the potential keywords within the same niche having less competition.

And, at the same time, if you take a look at the keyword,​ it has buyer intent but limited. Because few people might be searching for desk lamp just to check the price or images and other few things, right?

To find more keywords, I plugged in the seed keyword in LongTailPro. Then I selected the maximum competition to "30" & I got pretty good numbers of profitable keywords.

Bonus: I uploaded the list of keywords along their competition (under 30). You can download them & start your affiliate based niche site today.

We need a keyword that can make people wallet out. So, to see if your keyword/s have buyer intent. You need to make some changes in the keywords.

To do so, add words like best, review, discount with your keyword, alright? Here is how you can use these keywords. Marketever has nailed it- Credit to them.

  • Best/Top Rated + Product Type
  • Cheap + Product Type
  • Quality + Product Type
  • Product Name + For Sale
  • Bargain + Product Type
  • Best + Product Type + Online
  • Best + Product Type + Review
  • Best + Product Type + Year
  • Buy + Product Type / Product Name
  • Where Can I Buy + Product Name / Product Type
  • Product Name + Vs/Or/Compared to + Product Name
  • Product Name + Review/Reviews
  • Product Name + Coupon

I did a simple research using "best" as a prefix, and I got some pretty good results. The keyword has 1000+ searches. And, the keyword has medium competition that means it can be ranked easily.

Remember that Long Tail Keywords always have more buyer intent because they are more specific. For example,

Best Computer~ Now, people might be searching this for information.

Best Gaming Computer ~ This keyword has more buyer intent because the under research is specific. The user is looking to buy the best gaming computer.

Best Gaming Computer Under 500$ ~ As you can see, this keyword has super buyer intent. The user is looking for the gaming computers under 500$ that means the user has got a budget, and he/she will make a purchase.

AdSense Based Micro Niche Sites ​

The Process is similar for AdSense based sites, but the only difference is that you don't need "Buyer Intent" in your keywords since you're not going to sell anything, right?

But at the same time, you need the good amount of searches with high CPC. And, it take efforts and patience.

Few days back, I thought to build an AdSense based niche site. Then, I searched for the "high paying AdSense keywords" & I got to know that Insurance niche pays the best for Ad clicks. Here is the infoGraphic by WordStream.

adsense niche site

Then, I picked up my seed keyword and plugged it into the LongTailPro & I found amazing keywords with less competition and way high CPC. Unfortunately, the CPC is in INR so don't get it wrong. The average CPC was around 150$. 

Isn't that amazing? Just a simple search on Google and I came across best and High CPC Keywords- Goldmine Keywords for my Adsense Niche Sites, don't they?

Here are perks of high CPC keywords~ Another one!​

Adsense micro niche site

These Keywords might not have thousands of searches, but they will get the job done to a limited audience. 

Competition To Select For A Micro Niche Website

If you're a long tail pro user, then you might know that it calculates the difficulty of a keyword from 0 to 100. The higher it is, the harder it is to rank, obviously.

People often ask what competition you prefer for your niche sites, and my answer is~ always under 30. And, you should do the same because keywords under 30 can be ranked with a new site.

This little infographic shows what's the difficulty of a keyword according to the LTP competitiveness metric.

Beginning With Your Micro Niche Site

Domain Selection For Your Niche Site- How to pick a good Domain Name?

pick a good domain for micro niche site

Now that you've your keywords in the hand. It's the time to pick a domain name & get started with your micro niche site. However, you need to pick a domain name carefully because a good domain will give you a big advantage.

  • Branded Domain Name
  • Exact Match Domain Name

If you're a newbie blogger, it might get tough for you to pick a right domain name and also might get tough to differentiate between those highlighted terms.

Branded Domain Name​

As term coins, A branded domain name is a domain that used to brand the business. For example, you can take my own site ShouterBuzz, does it has a particular meaning or it a word from a dictionary?

`The answer is a simple NO. I used this domain name to build a brand. This domain has a meaning, but it's not exactly an official word. I used this domain just to build a brand.

Exact Match Domain Name (EMD)

As term says, It's a domain that based on particular keyword and has a meaning. These domains are brandable however they have a specific meaning. These domains speak what a website is about. For example,

  • Bestphotoeditortool
  • Bestandroidgames
  • Bloggingtips
  • Hairdryerreview

 What Type of Domain You Should Pick For Your Niche Site?

The answer is quite evident, Exact Match Domain Name. However, few SEO Gurus might not agree, but that's a topic for another day.

Always include your keywords in the domain name. It will give you an edge, and your ranking will improve significantly. For example, If my keyword is "Best Desk Lamp" then I'll pick a domain name like bestdesklamp.com/ or in other extensions.

If the exact domain name is not available, then I'll add some words to the domain, it could be anything like ibestdesklamp or bestdeskslamp

When you pick an EMD, it gives you a big time advantage. I always pick an EMD and without doing nothing my domain name, i.e., targeted keyword makes it to the Top 10 Google SERP (Search Engine Ranking Position).

The answer is simple. Your domain name should have the keyword, so Google can understand what is your site all about. So, always pick an EMD.

Preferred Extensions For Domain Name

.com .net and .org. If your Micro Niche site is a country specific, then you can go with a local extension that gives you an added advantage. For example, if you're targeting the UK, then you can go with co.uk

Where to Register The Domain?

Once you've decided the domain name, you can register your domain name at Godaddy or NameCheap. I never been a customer of NameCheap but I'll be using them soon.

Else you can go for Bluehost; It will give you a free domain name for a year if you buy hosting from them. And, their hosting service is one of the best so you can save some buck with Bluehost.

Writing a Static HomePage- The Untold Trick to Rank A Micro Niche Site

After setting up the site, it's time to post related articles?

-No.

The first thing you need to do is write a page covering the main keyword and set it as an homepage. It gives a huge boost to your Google SERP.

If you're going to promote a product, then you need to write a very qualitative homepage to get better conversion rate. 

How to Write Static Home Page That Converts

Write an article with at least 2000 words. But it can vary niche to niche. I've a niche where I wrote 3500 words, and I also have a niche that has 1000 words.

The more you will write the better it will be especially if it is an affiliate based micro niche site.

Extend the length of the page to improve the ranking.  According to SerpIq research, the average length of an article that ranks on Google is 2400+ words. Thus, be more specific in your article for better ranking.

And, add images and video in the article, if possible.

article length

Writing SEO Friendly Articles For Your Niche Site

Before I begin, Remember that the same process will apply for your static home page.

Proper Formatting of Articles- Make it Readable!

  • Breakdown into the paragraphs
  • A paragraph should not have more than 4 lines
  • Proper Use of Heading Tags
  • Usage of Media in your content

Usage of Keywords in The Article

  • Add your keyword in the slug- For example, If your targeted keyword is "Best-Speaks-For-Car," then use the exact keyword in URL, neither short nor long. 
  • ​Use the keyword in body, and maintain the density around 1%.

Writing Quality Article- Special Tips For Affiliate Based Niche Blogs

  • Proofread your Article. Don't make grammatical mistakes in the articles. It will kill your conversion rate. So, make sure you don't make any grammatical mistake and always proofread your articles before publishing.

Personally, I use Grammarly ​to proofread my articles. Check My Grammarly Reviews Here.

  • Add Pros and Cons while reviewing the product. If you're just writing good sides of products, then it will limit down your conversion rate.
  • Do use table system. Dom Well from HumanProofDesigns increased the conversion rate upto 300% by using the table on his Amazon based Niche site.

Writing Relevant Articles~ How to Find Keywords

A micro niche site generally contains 10-15 articles or sometimes even less. You can write on relevant topics & keep on interlinking to your homepage with main anchor text but make sure you also diversify it with LSI Keywords.

You can find related keywords by plugging in your main keyword in LongTailPro or Google Adwords or also in Ubersuggest.

Let's say, my targeted keyword is best folding bike, then I'll simply put in my main keyword in the Keyword Planner & collect the similar keywords.

Remember, these keywords not only help you to support overall site but if you rank them (that you will eventually happen) your site will start generating passive income.

See, just a simple search and I got a lot of keywords to write about. You can check the competition manually, but if you're a newbie, then a tool like LongTailPro is a goldmine. It will not only give you list of related keywords, but you can also find keywords with less competition.

I'm not biased about LongTailPro but let me tell you If I had have not this tool I wouldn't have come across such awesome keywords.

​There were hundreds of keywords within the same topic. I can simply write on them and when they will start ranking I'll start making big MONEY!

The article is getting really long, so I'm not going to write every single aspect of writing an SEO friendly article. I've already written a comprehensive guide on it, just read it.

​Finding Niche or Seed Keywords~ 2 Other Methods

That being said, There are many methods out there on the market that can help you to find a niche but, in the end, it's all about your awareness. If your mind is still stuck in tech & SEO niche, then you might end up wasting hours without finding a keyword.

So, here I'm sharing other methods that will help you to find keywords.

1. Go to Amazon.com. Click on department section. Now, you can see a  huge list of keywords in front of you, ain't it?

Just pick the niche that your're comfortable with and start deploying keywords.

2. Go to Flippa.com & start exploring the sites that are being auctioned there. Notice down the sites having exact match domain. If those sites are being sold or getting sold at high price, then you can try out your hand within the same niche.

You can select the options accordingly to get a more relevant result on Flippa. Here is what I generally use.

High CPC AdSense Based Niche Sites~ Keywords Revealed!

That being said, to build an AdSense Based micro niche site you need to get into the professional niches like trading, forexinsurance, and finance

​You can find unlimited untapped keywords. Like I said, I found some keywords having CPC as high as 200$. However, don't expect the same CPC because revenue is always shared between Google, Publisher, and Advertiser.

But I can assure you that you can get normal CPC between 2 to 10$ which is the best CPC you can ever get.

Let's assume that you make a micro niche site that gets at least 5,000 traffic a month, and you get Avg CTR of 2 (my average CTR is 5) with 2$ CPC, then you'll earn this much according to my calculations.

Do let me know if I made any mistakes because I suck at Maths, still.

high cpc monthly income

As you can see you will make $6.64$ daily and around 200$ a month just for 5,000 visitors and believe me, traffic can be increased over the time with efforts.

For me, My AdSense site has average CTR of 5 if applied to the given equation I'll make more money than that. So, if you're looking to Increase AdSense CTR & CPC, then you can read my article on it.

Here is the list of High CPC keywords & along with that also an example of High CPC based micro niche sites.

Ranking A Micro Niche Site

Now, we are at the third part of the "Building & Ranking a Niche Site." This step involves off-page stuff.

This is the same process I follow to give a boost to my niche sites, and you can do the same.

However, in the beginning, days, try to squeeze the ranking with on-page alone and when you make it to the top 7 page or so, then you can start following this process for maximum benefit, i.e., for boost in ranking.

Social Signals~ Easiest Way To Get Social Signals [No Shit]​

We know that social signals give a definite boost to ranking, and every SEO consultant suggests the same thing. But, how one is supposed to get social signals without revealing his niche site.

Sounds legit, right?

You & I is not supposed to share the link of our niche site with anybody else. When I talk about social signals, I'm talking about Google+ & Twitter.

And, we all know that one can't simply get Google likes from Google communities because it's way hard, and doesn't worth all the efforts we put in, right?

So, here is the trick to get social Signals on your niche site.

1. Register an account on KingdomLikes.com . It's a social like and share-based site and being a blogger we can use this site for our purposes. 

2. From there, you've to like the social stuff of the audience who is running their accounts and campaigns there. And, in the return, you will get the points for completing the task. 6, 7, 8, 10 points depending on each task.

You can select any platform like youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram​, and Google +

Here is an example from one of my Kingdom account.​

social signal for micro niche site

3. For every 50 clicks a day you'll get added bonus of 250 points.

​4. After collecting some points, you can add your own page in the kingdom likes to get the social signals.

There are several networks, you can choose any one of them, but I prefer Google+ over ​all networks. 

Here is the process to start your own campaign for niche site project​

Click on Add page button to begin the process.

Type: Select what kind of signals you need. Like, you can select Google+ likes & shares.

Countries: You can get country specific signals by choosing a specific country.

Title: You can give title to you campaign. I choose site name and post name to remember the campaigns.

Total & Daily Click: You can set the limit if you want to spend specific points on campaigns.

CPC: You can select the cost per click for your campaigns where the minimum is 4 & maximum is 10. You can select the one accordingly. Remember, higher the CPC more the click on your link and faster the process.

social signals

You can keep an eye on your campaigns through "My Sites" section. Here is an image from my dashboard.

social signals for micro niche site

Thus using this process you can get a ton of social signals direct to your site and it will definitely help you to boost the ranking.

Backlink Strategy~ Sweet & Simple

Web 2.0 Properties: For me, Web 2.0 linking strategy has been very effective. It's one of the best ways to build quality backlinks to your site. 

You should respect the authority of web 2.0s site. I've one site that I ranked alone with links from few web2.0s. All of them were having PA 30+ . Thus, it gave an immense boost to my niche site.

Let’s say you’ve 10 web 2.0s and each web2.0 has a PA of 30 and, then you pass a backlink to your money site from those 10 web2.0s, then the ranking of your site will skyrocket.

​Must Read: List of Web 2.0 Properties & How to use them Effectively

Comment Links: Once my site makes it to the top 3 pages I give a boost to the ranking by commenting on relevant sites. 

I don't care the fact about no-follow or do-follow tags because diversification is important to save yourself from the penalty. And, no-follow comments still help to improve the ranking.

Forum Links: Forum is one of the best places to build anchor text based backlinks. However, I see, newbie bloggers often suck at it because they are unable to find a forum for backlinking.

Let's say you have a niche site in a health niche. What you've to do is type in Google "Health Related Forums" & then join them one by one. If out of 10 forums 3 forums allow you to have signature backlinks, then you will have three high-quality backlinks pointing back to your niche site.

Profile, Video Sharing, Document Sharing Backlinks

To diversify my links, I build profile links, video sharing site links, document sharing site links and much more. They not only to improve the ranking but also save you from the penalty.

​Here is the list of 21 Authority Links By Online Dimes

My Results With The Same Process

Though I'm still learning & experimenting the things still, I managed to get traffic to my niche blogs. Here are the attachments from my niche sites. There is a bug in webmaster right now so ignore that blank space.

Hi DEEPAK RANA,
You have mentioned some of the very good points for building and make money from a niche website. But, no matter how much traffic a Micro website is receiving, if the monetization method is chosen carefully, one can’t earn good money from it. I also request you to share some blog monetization methods among us.

Do you recommend Amazon over CPA networks such as Offervault or ClickBank? What’s your opinion on using a parasite 2.0 site for micro niches rather than launching a new wp site?

Reply
    Deepak Rana - August 7, 2015

    1) It’s depends on the niche of a micro-niche blog.
    For example- If your website niche is dog-food then you can sell those products by reviewing them.
    But in Case if you have blog on topic like free-recharge-tricks then CPA networks work better.

    2) For me launching a new wp site is a better choice.

Hi Deepak,
Long but yet to the point article. You have covered A to Z points of Building a profitable micro-niche sites.

I had a doubt about Kingdom likes. I have tried that service in past. Didn’t work that well. As you suggested, I’ll give it one more try.
Can you suggest other methods for getting social shares apart from point based systems?

Punit Mahajan

    Deepak Rana - May 26, 2016

    Hello, Punit, Glad that you liked the article. As of now, Kindom Likes is working well. Apart from that, to be honest, it’s little hard to get google+ votes, but still you can join some communities and then post there an image along with your web-page or link to home page. So, whenever people from community gives like to the image it will also be counted as upvote from Google.

Hi Deepak,

A nice and detailed guide on micro niche sites. I have been into adsense based sites but yet to try Amazon niche sites. I am finding it difficult to switch to Amazon based websites.

Is there any detailed guide on how you select Amazon keywords? What things you keep in mind while finalizing the niche?

    Yeah, it’s definitely a good idea to build an micro niche site on an expired domain. But, make sure the domain is relevant to the niche and links pointing to that domain should be relevant too. And, also make sure to check the Domain history with waybackmachine.

Achintam karmakar - June 27, 2016

May be this the best and detailed article I read so far.I mean its is explained so nicely even the off topics too.Frankly speaking this stood to be my best article I read till date.
But the questions which I have are:
•Sometime we don’t get EMD with .com .net .org or popular extension because most of them are already booked so what I think is taking two keyword and adding them up bcoz it stuff your domain with more keyword which help in easy ranking of your website.I prefer this because i don’t think that Buying EMD without popular extension works(.tk .xyz .online .masti thus can never work like .com .in .net or .org)……So what’s your opinion on this?
•Some types of niches like whatsapp status or like this , their you can’t produce your own content.Bcoz its something impossible.So how to manage ranking here by writing an article from 5-6article parts.???
•Does web directories help as equal as other from of making backlinks?(because till now I preferred web directories backlink)
•Should we blindly go with keyword having low competition and high searches.Or something else we should see?(am taking about Google keyword Planner tool)
•Staying in India its quite hard to get high CPC clicks because if u see high bids then also what type of ads AdWords is placing in your website you never know,it may be of 0.1$ or even 0.05$ CPC also.So at this point of stage do you really think decent traffic (for example:-5000per month can work,as u said)can bring around 200$ sum per month(approximately)?
•As a newbie if we don’t have much fund to invest then what if we choose blogspot instead of WordPress then if we earn good then we can think of migrating to WordPress…what say?

Sry deepak I know u r thinking that this boy have so many queries.Uff…Sry to distrub you..But this were the doubt always have in my mind.Kindly if u clear those then it would be a great help for me.. Thanking You,
Achintam karmakar
Again I shall say it was the best article i read till date😃!!!

Reply
    Deepak Rana - June 27, 2016

    Hello, Achintam. Glad to know that you loved the article. Now, let me answer your queries:
    1. If major extensions are not available for EMD, then we can join some keywords together or simply you can put words like the, and I, S in the domain. For example, if whatsappimages not available, then I’ll pick something like the WhatsAppimages, iwhatsappimages, and something like that.

    2. It is not like that you are going to copy the whole article. For example, you can copy status from 5 different sites ranking for the keyword you are targeting, then be replacing few words with synonyms. And, optimize them the similar way for SEO.

    3. Web directories do help for sure. However, you should also focus on all type of backlinks like web2.0, comment, profile, guest posting (If possible)

    4. If a keyword has high search volume and less competition, then it’s definitely a GO-TO keyword. However, you should also check for CPC of that keyword, if Adsense based. And, the competition shown by Keyword planner is for advertisers not for bloggers so don’t get confused.

    5. You can target global niches having a good volume from both Tier1 & Tier2 countries.

    6. Blogger is not bad at all. It is an excellent platform. WordPress is easier to use and have better UI that’s it, but blogger isn’t bad at all. You can earn the same amount of money from Blogger as well.

What a super guide! I don’t know how many sites you have, but it sounds like you are doing quite well.

My question is this: How many articles does each site contain? 15?
How often do you add new content to these sites?

Reply

    Hey, Lorraine. Good to see you here. Articles varies according to the potential. If there are few potential and relevant keywords, then around 10 otherwise you can scale it up with numbers of article like an authority site.

That was a really great article on niche site building. I basically will be just starting out blogging so initially to save on costs, I just plan to use Google Keywords planner Tool for SEO instead of Long Tail Pro, although I’ll definitely be using it later from my profits in the future. So, considering two scenarios if I wish to focus on building two sites parallelly – one is a Micro Niche site for Affiliate products(Where less number of visitors per month can help bringing in some good affiliate commissions as you’ve stated) as well as an Adsense based High CPC based site, then what should be the range (eg. 500-1000 in terms of daily/monthly searches) for a particular keyword (whether a short one or a long one) to think upon building up a micro niche site using them?

Reply
    Deepak Rana - August 19, 2016

    Hey, Sagar. It’s a good idea to work on two sites. For adsense niche site, I’ve already specified in the article. You can go with minimum 30k/monthly searches, but the numbers can vary acc. the the cpc. Keep visiting.

I am trying to start this from the past 4 to 5 month, but I don’t know how to structurize my Micro Niche Blog.But somehow I have to start this, and I have a huge number of topics on which I can start micro niche base sites, and after reading your post, I am thinking to start ASAP because after one try I will understand what should I do not do this in my 2nd Micro Blog.
Like my website URL so insurancefreepolicycom and I have to rank insurance free Policy, so I have to setup simple page and assign a home to that Page then fill with Content and Publish on it after publishing the leading article I have to post Pillars article which can boost my main article according to On The Page Perspective (Internal Linking to Main Article) social signals will boost me in start then will use other off the page tactics.
