What is the Key to Any Successful Adsense Campaign?  Finding the Right Keywords!

In this post we are going to briefly discuss how you can build simple 4-5 page microsites and use them to make money with Adsense by using proper Keyword Research techniques.

If you are like me, I have always put off doing keyword research because I never fully understood it.  The tools that are available to you (free or paid) have always seemed to have huge discrepancies even when researching the exact same term.

The problem is, if you are looking to drive traffic through organic search,  you have to get this part correct or you are wasting your time. Before we get into details about keyword research let’s take a quick look what a microsite is and how you will monetize it:

  • Revenue is generated on a per impression or a per click basis
