Remember when mini-sites were all the rage?

Let’s take a step back in time, rewind back to 2004, 2005, 2006 and when I got started in this crazy world of domain names – 2007. These were the times when mini-sites were all the rage. Yes – the idea was simple, or so it seemed. Buy a bunch of domain names, put a simple 5-10 page “mini-sites” on them laden with Google Adsense and sit back while you money printing machine did it’s job.

Then came Google who over the course of a couple years crushed the mini-site, which in the end was probably better for the average user searching on Google but royally sucked for those of us who were making good money with mini-sites.

All that being said, there are still mini-sites that are alive and strong today and tonight I was just thinking back to when I had a network of mini-sites, each their own little money-printing machine which in aggregate made good money and were a meaningful part of my business when I was just getting started.

In 2016 I know most mini-sites have been killed off by Google but some still survive. So I thought it would be interesting to hear from my readers – do you have mini-sites that are still making money? Comment and let your voice be heard!
