Posted On // Leave a Comment


In this rapidly growing web world, it’s necessary to choose the right niche for your website or you may end up abandoning your website in the middle. Choosing the niche for your blog or website can be a tough job if you don’t know what factors you need to consider. It’s also very important to choose your niche wisely. In this article, I will share my insights on choosing the best niche that suits you.

Creating a successful website and managing it can be a time consuming and hard process. If you want to start a new website and administer it, you’ll need to find what your true passion is. With a passion for your niche, you can create wonders on your website and you can learn new things as well.

Many people try to get rich by creating a website. 99% of the people who try to make money through the Internet fail. Let me tell you one thing – success doesn’t come overnight. It takes dedication and hard work to be successful in one field. You won’t make money by reading some eBook on making money online. Creating websites and managing it requires a lot of time. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, you’ll certainly get bored and abandon it at some point of time. It’s to be kept in mind that you need to choose a niche that will keep your website alive for many years.

Grab a pen and piece of paper. Try to brainstorm various ideas about your new website. 

Ask these questions to yourself:
What topic do I love the most?
In which field am I considered an expert?
On what topics would I like to read on?
What is my true passion?
You’ll be able to find a few topics that you’re interested in.

If you’ve completed the first part, you certainly will have some ideas on what field to get started. Now it’s the time to start researching on the topics that you’ve noted down in the first step. You just need a web browser and Google for this. You probably will find something about that on the Internet. Yeah, many people thought about this before you. Don’t worry, there are millions of websites on the Internet. It’s okay to have some sites as competitors so that you can improve. You can’t start a website on a topic that nobody has ever heard of and The best for the research are review and web 2.0 sites like Ukritic which can give an idea and help in choosing the perfect niche.

Now you have some basic ideas, did some research. Now you have three or four niches that you’re passionate about. If you’re choosing a broad niche, then you may need to face some troubles later. Suppose you chose “Life” as your niche.  You will then have a lot of topics to write on. But your artilces will not be connected together and you will have to face troubles in ranking well in search engines. But it doesn’t mean that you have to narrow down your niche too much. It may be easy to rank for, but you will not get much traffic for this because there are lesser number of people who are interested in your niche.

It’s highly important to know whether your niche is profitable or not. Niches like health and insurance are highly profitable but they’re highly competitive as well. Now what? Google Adwords Keyword Tool is your friend. Find a niche with good amount of CPC, (preferrably greater than 1$). Analyze the competition of your niche using tools like Market Samurai (free trial available) and Rank Tracker  (free trial available).

Choose your niche wisely. It may take a long time to select your niche. But the time you spent on choosing it is not wasted. That time’s worth it. Don’t try to create a website for making money. Let creating a website be your primary aim. Content is secondary and money will follow. Just make sure you enjoy the process of creating awesome content, success is yours.
