Edge of the Web: We define this as pages that have niche information, for example a web page written about butterfly hunting in India. There are portals or vortals that specialize in allowing specialized sites to submit. HoboTraveler.com is a travel site that seeks to find this type of information.
There is a lot of space for traffic to a site, when you do not go for the main SERPS: Search Engine Result Page Rank
Sometime the sum of 50 pages getting 5 people per month, is easier by brute force than getting 250 on one page. Generally the problem is Google Indexing, sadly the pages that do not get many searches are placed in supplemental.
