A few of my readers might remember when I first built out a set of minisites around 6 months ago. When I returned from my camping trips I found my paypal, EPN (eBay Partner Network) and Adsense accounts with more money that I had expected. It seems that my simple 5 page or so minisites had been shown lots of love by Google.
All of the first 4 sites I built rank on the first page of google and most of them are above the fold! Traffic is up this month on average 143.5% My average PPC click is over $1 on the very few sites I run adsense on and I am on track to have a record number of clicks with my EPN and phpbay combo.
For a while I doubted the minisites as they sat on the lower pages of search engines and only earned a little bit, but now these sites that took less than 1 hour to build are sending me a few hundred dollars a month. I know a few hundred dollars may not seem like a lot but my jeep gets 11.7 mpg the way I drive. They take very little time to keep up and I am building more right now.
So be patient with your minisites mine took about 5 months to gain Googles favor. I really did not do to much besides use all in one seo plugin on them. One has to use the exact match domain and SEO becomes much easier.
