If you are a blogger or an Internet savvy person, chances are you have already encountered the term NICHE. Niches are your main topic or a primary subject of your website or webpage. Say you are always writing about styles of clothes, brand of jeans, make up and other beauty products then your niche is about Fashion. To cut the story short, it is the main idea of your blog or website.[divider] [impt text="What are Micro Niches?"] The term micro niche is a bit new in the world of the Internet. Remember the previous example above. It talks about fashion which is a broad term. You can still drill down to a more specific idea such as trending men's wear, cheapest summer fashion, or even blue-colored dress. These more specific topics are what we call micro niche topics. Let's see how micro niche websites can help you rank higher in search engine results and help you market your products or services better.[divider] [impt text="Micro Niche and Internet Marketing"] General topic niches are difficult to rank in Google especially when your website is new. It is because the competition is very high as compared to specific niches. Let's have an example. try to search for it using Google search engine, there are about 1.9 billion search results. But if you try to search 'hot summer fashion for 2012', you will be getting around 98 million search results which gives a better chance for you to rank your sites. So, how are you going to get into the top 10 of the results using micro niche sites?

If you are using micro niche websites, there's a better chance that your web site or web page will rank higher than other general niche web sites or blogs.[divider] On the next article, I will be teaching you how to research micro niche topics.
