One month ago, I had an idea to create a website on a micro niche that is related to the area of my interest. In this series of case studies, you will witness the precise, step-by-step process for building a Niche Site from start to finish.

Picking the right niche is super important because even if you put in tons of effort and are really passionate about blogging, it can all go down the drain if you choose the wrong one. So, it’s like the starting point, and we gotta get it right.
Now, let’s talk about niche research. It’s the most important thing when it comes to websites. Why? Well, it helps you figure out who your specific target audience is and what they’re looking for. By understanding the market demand, you can create content and plan your marketing strategies strategically. It’s all about giving your audience what they want and making sure your website rocks!
Whenever you select a niche, whatever you are, whether you are an expert or Not, Something you must keep in mind when you select a niche.
- Your area of interest
- Evergreen Niche
- Micro niche
- Check niche on Google Trend (Seasonality)
- The volume of that niche
- Check Competitors

- Area Of Interest
Have you ever heard of a niche? It’s basically this super cool topic or subject that really grabs you and gets you excited to create content or work in that specific field. It’s like your personal passion that drives you to do your thing. It’s all about finding that perfect little corner where you can really shine and show off your skills and interests.
- Evergreen Niche
A niche that maintains a constant demand and possesses a consistent audience, unaffected by shifting trends or seasons.
- Micro Niche
So, check this out! I’ve found this amazing micro-niche that has a solid potential of 3%. What does that mean? Well, it means this niche has a small but super-dedicated audience. And the best part? The content you create for this niche can stay relevant and valuable for a long time. It’s like having this niche that’s all yours, with people who really care about what you do.
- Google Trend
Checking the niche on Google Trends provides valuable insights into its popularity and search trends over time, helping you gauge the level of interest and potential audience engagement.
Keep in mind that your niche is not a type of seasonality, which means your site grows when there is a season of that thing.
- Volume of Niche
A higher volume for a niche indicates a larger potential audience and greater demand for content or products within that niche.
- Greater Market Potential
- Increased Opportunities
- Competitive Advantage
- Check Competitors
Analyze the Competitors and At Least 2,3 competitors’ websites on the first page of Google with low DA.
- Number of Keywords
To find the best keywords for my website, I used the KGR (Keyword Golden Ratio) technique. This method involves identifying keywords with a good amount of search volume but low competition.
- Here are some places where you find a profitable niche
- Motion invest
- Google Suggest
In keyword research, I used a Semrush tool for finding keywords and also did manual research. My goal was to discover low-difficulty keywords with a strong likelihood of ranking well on search engine result pages (SERPs).
Domain & Hosting:
For the domain name, I opted for an exact match domain that closely aligns with the primary keyword of our niche. Having an exact match domain can enhance SEO and make it simpler for visitors to recall the website address.
I purchased the domain from Namecheap.com on May 15th.
I purchased hosting from Hostinger for my website. Hostinger offers reliable and affordable hosting plans, making them suitable for my budget and requirements. Additionally, Hostinger provides excellent performance and uptime, ensuring that my website remains accessible to visitors.
If you want to start a blog, u can use our referral link to buy hosting ismailblogger.com/hostinger.
We will install themes and plugins for free, which will reduce your cost.
After purchasing the domain, here are some points that I need to keep in mind:
- I Used hosting from Hostinger( We Already have an Enterprise account)
- I Installed the KedenceBlock theme on WordPress.
- I also installed several plugins for further optimization, such as
- Azon Press
- WWW Image Optimize,
- WP Form,
- WP Rocket
- Link whisper
- Story scrapper.io
When I select the niche which is the micro then I dive into the sub-micro niche, because the narrower your niche, the easier it will be to become an authority in it.
I work on Topical Authority because topical authority is kinda like becoming a mini-celebrity in your niche. It makes you the first port of call for information. And you know what that leads to? Trust, credibility, and search engines love authoritative content.
After finalizing the niche and domain name, I set specific expectations for the first month of my microniche website. Here are the details:
My goal is to rock the website with a whopping 300 articles in just one month. That’s right, we’re talking about 10 articles per day! And guess what? These articles will cover a whole bunch of topics that are totally relevant to our niche. The plan is to give our audience loads of value and attract a ton of traffic. We’re gonna be the go-to spot for all things related to our niche.
Let me tell you about Autoblogging.ai! It’s seriously the best AI tool out there for creating content. With Autoblogging.ai, you can say goodbye to all the manual work of writing and publishing content. It does everything for you automatically, saving you so much time and effort. You can finally focus on other essential things for your website or business while Autoblogging.ai takes care of creating and posting content. It’s seriously a game-changer.
- Copymatic is also one of the best Ai tools.
Internal Linking (inbound & outbound)
So, there’s this awesome WordPress plugin called Link Whisper that makes internal linking a breeze. It’s super handy because it analyzes your content and gives you suggestions for relevant internal links. You can choose to add these links automatically or manually, whichever works best for you.
So, I’ve been using this amazing tool called a Story Scraper for my website. What it does is it helps me create 2-3 stories every day. You won’t believe what I’m trying to achieve with this – I’m aiming to drive organic traffic to my website! Yup, that’s right. By regularly adding new stories, I’m hoping to attract more visitors to my site and boost its visibility. It’s a pretty cool strategy if you ask me!
To enhance our online presence and attract more visitors, my aim was to post some on our social media profiles, engaging with the audience and sharing valuable content related to our niche.
I’ve been using Autoblogging.ai, an AI-powered tool, to generate user-centric content on our website. My main focus is on quality rather than quantity, ensuring that our articles address specific user needs and align with their intent.
On-page SEO plays a vital role in a website. After generating the content my next aim is to focus on On-page SEO.
For image optimization, I used Canva for the featured image for our website.
Then I also used an Auto blogging tool to generate a Meta description for our website.
I used Link Whisper for internal linking to our website as I told you above why I use Link Whisper.
Creating clean and keyword-rich URLs that accurately describe the page’s content can improve search engine readability
To meet our goal of 300 articles, I published our first piece on March 16th and continued to release articles throughout the month.
I was expecting to have around 5-10 visitors per day during the initial month as I worked on spreading the word and making the website more visible. It’s all about gradually building awareness and getting people to notice the website over time.
I achieved my goal in one month.
- This is an Ahref Report that shows us the results.
- This is a Google Analytics report.
- Getting a daily visitor on our website.
- It’s a good point that we have a US visitors.
- A significant factor contributing to our success is that we have one target keyword ranking on the first page of Google.
- Consistently posting content on social media every day has a substantial impact on our website’s ranking.
Next Month’s plan:
For the next month, our goals are:
- Content Creation: I will publish 15 articles daily.
- Social Presence: I have planned to maintain a daily posting schedule on our social media profiles.
- Web stories: My plan is to add 10-plus web stories every day.
- Ranking: I aimed to rank at least most of the articles in the top three positions of SERPs.
My final thought about the case study is that Building a micro-niche website from scratch demands significant effort and patience. This case study showcased their performance, surpassing their initial goals within the first month.
My diverse SEO strategies resulted in achieving first-page rankings on Google and acquiring backlinks from authoritative websites.
Moving forward, my aim is to publish additional articles, enhance website functionality, and work on social presence, fostering continuous growth for the website.
