    Interesting niche-finding technique
    I came across this neat little article over at SEOProToolz today and thought it was worth sharing: Profitable niches in under 10 minutes.

    Does anyone else rely on Wikipedia or something similar to find profitable niches? Last week I blogged about using Yahoo Buzz to do just that, but I hadn't thought of Wikipedia. Very cool!

    Wonder how long that technique will last, before we're swamped with ten thousand "accused priests" like sites on the web..

    I'm going to start bastardizing the sea turtle population. Gotta make a buck somehow. How about Sea Horses that rape and the victims that don't tell?

    Every time I see posts like this, I get an urge to build sites around high-CPC keywords. Then I think about it, realize that it will provide no value to the customers, and talk myself out of it. If you can make money providing value or make money without providing value, why would you choose to do the latter?

    Techniques like this can be used to build no-content MFA sites, but theres no rule that you HAVE to use them to build no-content MFA sites.
    Maybe youre already building a site, sometimes it helps to fine tune the keywords.

    Well I don't know about USING Wiki but I have noticed that at least one of my sites has been mentioned in an ontopic wiki article (I wont say wich one) and it really helped my traffic.

    Replacing "Wiki" with my site lets google remove half the hay from the stack to reveal several needles.

    Nice!

    The author's chosen niche topics are indeed questionable. LOL. And Michael, I agree that it would be tough to provide much value on a topic like "accused priests"!

    Just thought the idea of using Wikipedia for inspiration was neat.
