Build mini-sites optimized for the very

I've got two of these one pagers in finnish, one up for 2 years and the other for 1 year. The first one earns about 2000 EUR per year and the second one about 800 EUR. The first one, which is a very long two-word combo domain that nobody would ever just intuitively type-in, but a highly searched term, has become somewhat famous in finland: after about a year in operation, it started receiving lots of type-ins (people tell others about it, word of mouth).
