Keyword Targeting on Niche Sites for AdSense Income

What about niche sites to generate AdSense income? How much can you make?

Niche sites are small sites -- 5 to 10+ pages -- targeting just one keyword (key phrase).

The idea is that with a niche site, you can more easily get on the first SERP page -- even the #1 position -- for the keyword you are targeting.

It's better to be on the first page of SERP results for a moderately competitive key phrase rather than on the 10th page for a highly competitive keyword.

You want to look for a balance of potential searches for your keyword and the number of competitors.
