Do micro niche websites still rank? Well, that is a great question and one that I intend to answer by actually trying it for myself. So, if you are wanting to know how to build a micro niche website, follow along with me while we find out together.
A short while ago, I saw a niche case study in which a guy called Jay created a really thin affiliate site that ended up ranking number 1 in Google and earning him quite a lot of money. He’s number 1 for the term “football snack helmets”, as you can see here:
This seems ridiculous because if you look at the website there’s really not much content on there at all:
There’s just a bunch of thin pages about the various team snack helmets. Then there’s only one blog post from right at the beginning, and it’s not even a particularly long blog post.
But I thought that Exact Match Domains were a thing of the past. Surely this website can’t be ranking just because it has the keyword in the domain?
So I recently asked the question on in the Search Engine Optimization classroom on Wealthy Affiliate:
As you can see, it caused quite a stir, as it ended up getting 82 comments. Kyle, one of the owners of Wealthy Affiliate, even got involved. His view was that micro niche websites like this could still rank.
It even caused him to write a blog post addressing this and the wider issues:
As you can see, a lot of people clicked “Like” for that. So this was a HUGE conversation.
And it got me thinking, maybe I could create my own micro niche sites like this. So that’s what I have set out to do, and I have decided to document the process. I am going to be creating a series of training videos that will follow me as I go through the process of researching, creating, and developing my own micro niche website.
Take a look:

You can even give me suggestions or ask questions. We can learn how to build a micro niche website together.
All the best,
