In a recent post I talked about the difference between building small niche blogs or building authority blogs. Each of them has their advantages. But since the Panda update a lot of people now believe that small (thin) sites will drop down the rankings.
Well with anything I do online, I always test and try things myself to prove whether something is correct or not. So recently I started creating small niche Adsense blogs just to test whether they can make money on their own and rank like I would hope.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been making money with Adsense since 2003 but recently I have been focussing on product creation instead of building Adsense sites.
So this was a welcome change!
I built them towards the end of August and every one has made money and is ranking in the top ten of Google for their term. One makes more than $1 a day but the others are more random.
Maybe this is a temporary thing and the Panda update might affect them but to be honest, I’m not bothered! If I can make a site in 2 hours that earns money every month and is an asset I could flip for $500-$1000 then I’ll happily keep building them.
Also, I did very little promotion on these particular blogs too. Nothing like what I do for my other sites.
Now I do have authority blogs too, so I’ve got all bases covered but this was an interesting test. Actually since then I’ve created a LOT more of them and am enjoying getting back into the Adsense game again. So much so I’m creating a course on exactly what I’m doing and how I’m building these small sites and authority blogs too.
So stay tuned for that one!
I guess having more than 200,000 clicks on my Ads and some months reaching 28,000 clicks I must have done something right over the years and would love to share it with others to help them make money blogging with Adsense too.
So are 1 page blogs dead? Well no I don’t think they are.
