Today I’m going to show you. how I started an Adsense niche site and earned 170$/month in just two months, and also I will be sharing some guidelines on how I find and build a niche site from scratch.
I start blogging in May 2016 just by buying a domain from GoDaddy and a VPS server from Dreamhost. Without knowing and realizing how I make money and how long will it take.
At beginning; I didn’t realized that building an authority blog will take time and also I didn’t plan my income part since there are a lot of ways to earn money online. Without planning it, I just register my profitableblogging.com domain and started building an authority blog.
Within a week, I was thinking how to pay my server bills and afford my monthly expenses. I thought I should have got a shared hosting at the beginning. But even then I can able to manage my monthly expenses.
Affiliate marketing can be a good choice where I can make huge money with few sales even for that I need to rank for my target keyword, or I need to have a good number of readers. Also for paid ad, I need to spend on it.
So I make move to build an AdSense niche site. Since the AdSense niche site only needs traffic with billions of keywords, it is easy to find a high search volume keyword.
Guess what? Within a month I got my result. Now its time to writing this blog post on(09/27/2016). I’m in the first position for my target keywords, and it’s getting more than 100,000 organic clicks.
Here is my organic traffic from Jun 28 – Sep 25
It is a tech niche. Now per month I’m getting more than 100,000 organic clicks on Avg it earns 160$ per month.
I didn’t just stop here. Am searching of new ways every day on how we can maximize this revenue within few months, and I will be sharing those details in this blog post soon.
OK, we leave this story, and I will explain the steps that I follow to build a profitable Adsense niche site from scratch.
Here Are My 3-Step to Build Profitable Niche Site for AdSense
There are 3 steps to build a profitable niche for Adsense:
#1: Find niche with high search volume keywords that has bring traffic
#2: Do competitor research
#3: Improve and update the content more than your Competitor
Here’s how i did it:
First, Finding Niche with High Search Volume Keywords
- Finding Niche Site
While doing this make sure to find a niche that you are comfortable with. Since it’s hard to understand other niches, if you don’t have any idea about it.
- Keyword Research
Keyword Research for Adsense niche site is an important task.
There are few thing you need to know while selected a keyword.
If you choose a Keyword with 50,000 monthly search volume. Don’t think you can get 50,000 clicks even if you are in 1st position for that keyword.
Even I thought like that in the beginning. But after ranking here is my result.
As you can see the CTR is just 33.81%. So find high search volume keyword if you need more traffic
Here is a reference chart for the click-through rate (CTR) of organic desktop searches in Google.

Also, Search volume that you find in keyword planner includes data from different source like
- Search type ( Web, Image, and Video)
- Device (Mobile, Desktop, and Tablet)
- Even search in the Google Play Store is included in it.
Note: Check your keyword has search volume in countries like the U.S. and the U.K., etc. Because the AdSense CPC for the following country would be high.
Second, Do Competitor Research
For competitor research, I’m using Ahrefs.
I did some research for my targeted page of my competitor, and he got few authority backlinks point to that page.
Here is my competitor result.
The Above result is the new one after getting higher ranking than my competitor, the old traffic will be around 20K – 25K not sure about that. But the organic traffic shown in it is not an exact one.
Things you need to check is
- No. of. Referring domain
- Organic traffic.
#1. While checking the referring domain. Check the link quality and find is there any authority site point to it.
I found my Competitor has 2 to 3 authority backlink and other link looks link PBN backlink.
On looking at the referring domain. I thought it should make this done.
So I started link building work for 2 days. After finishing the site and content work. Now the result.
After a month I got.
And the total organic traffic for my 2 months old niche site is
As you can see it get more than 1L organic traffic.
#2: Checking the organic traffic.
Here is my Competitor organic traffic details.
The number is bit low for AdSense Niche site. But this details for one of my targeted keywords.
The reason I asked you to check the search volume in Competitor research tools is to show you the search volume that occurs in desktop and mobile.
Third, Improve and Update the Content More than Your Competitor
You probably know that Long-form content ranks higher in Google’s search results than the short-form content.
While checking my Competitor, I found that content is less than 300 words for the particular article and also the information he gave is too less.
So I Improve and update the content more than my Competitor has written.
And also I updated those details in the title
Here is an example for it.
Buffer blog post ranks in 1st position in Google search. Since it gives more list of twitter tools than other.
So it gets more CTR and user spend more time on the page. Which help you to quickly outrank your Competitor.
You can learn more this ranking factor in this video.
Now that you’ve seen my results, I’d like to hear from you.
