Smart way to update your Minisites


I found that a lot of people are using minisites about different topics to make money with adsense and other programs. Lot of webmasters feel that they should have a lot of sites in different niches to get a decent income without much trouble.

What are minisites? They are small sites with information about a topic and the subjects around it written with SEO in mind to obtain high results for a set of keywords to bring in traffic.

If you are looking for information on how to make a profitable niche blog yourself visit my friend – Derek Beau who is currently running a case study on how this can be done. But of course only after you are done with this post! 😉

I have a mini site on the recently famous disease at my place Kerala, India called Chikungunya fever. I was bent on updating it frequently with some news, views and trivial things on the disease as they happen. I am using Google Alerts for this purpose, which is a really helpful tool to keep track of news, search engine results and other information which will be sent you by email as they happen or as a digest in the time interval you specify.

So whenever the fever breaks in any part of the world, I get an email which I can use as the source of data for a blog post. Also, if you are too lazy, you can setup a comprehensive email to blog post feature and use that email to create an alert. Smaaart Way! 😈 This way you have a site that auto updates itself with news as it happens!!!

So, do you use this or any other sites for that matter to keep yourself updated?
