We’ve all done it: created a website in some niche, added content, wondered about keywords and eventually started to think about monetizing the site. It’s no wonder my sites fail to make much money or even any money – other than a few bucks from Adsense.

Imagine knowing which niche to enter, the keywords to target and even the products to promote! Wouldn’t that give you a massive advantage, while saving countless days, weeks and months creating websites that fail to bring in any real money.

If you’ve prepared to do a little research you’ll be amazed at the information successful blog and website owner share quite freely. For example, have look at the Million Dollar Blog Project leaderboard – screenshot below.

There are blogs on that leaderboard earning 3, 4 and 5 figures! Here’s some of the blogs earning 4 and 5 figures.

College Info Geek

College Info Geek is a blog that helps you be awesome at college.Going to college is like going to a baseball game. Not everyone can afford to get in, so those who are lucky enough to be there seem to have a leg up. However, after all the hotdogs, peanuts, and beer is consumed, only a few will catch a home run ball and walk out with a piece of history. The rest can comfort themselves with fond memories and a ticket stub pasted in a scrapbook somewhere.
