Few Tips to Choose Perfect Niche for Your Blog
Which topics are you most interested in?
If you are not interested in the niche about you’re going to start a blog then, believe me, you’re wasting your time. You can’t get success in blogging on the topic that you don’t understand. You should have good knowledge about the topic that you are going to write about in your blog. You can provide valuable information about the specific niche only if you love to read about that niche. So, first, make a list of topics that you are interested in. After making list choose the one for your new blog that you love most to write about.
For example, one of my friends has a good knowledge of fishing and food. He usually searches on Google about new food recipes. So, my friend can start a blog on the food or fishing niche. It makes no sense if he creates a blog on the health niche.
Because he is not much interested in health-related topics. If you think you can easily get information from other blogs, and then write about it in your way, then you are entirely wrong. Remember one thing you can’t beat the competitor by copying the competitor.
Choose a Long Term Niche
You should always go for a long-term niche blog. A short term niche blog or an event blog will become almost dead after the end of the event. An event niche blog will not get any traffic after the end of the event.
So, you have to drop that niche after the event. Don’t make blogs like happynewyear2016, happyvalentinesday2016 because these types of blogs have a very short life.
Try to find a niche that has long term potential like iPhone, Android OS, Windows OS, etc. A good example of a long term niche is technology. Because technology changes with time. You can write lots of information about upcoming or latest tech gadgets on your blog.
Is Your Niche Profitable?

Popularity and Competition of the Niche
If you’re blogging on a topic that has almost no readers, then it’s a waste of time again. The topic you are writing about should have readers. Otherwise, your blog is just trash. No audience means no traffic and no traffic means no money. So, find a niche that is popular or has a good amount of audience. Also, do deep research and find a niche that has low or medium competition. Because it is very easy to rank a niche that has low competition.
If you think you can even rank a high competition niche then it will be better just go for it. But it may take a very long time to rank on a high competition niche. So, don’t make a blog on the topic that everyone is searching for.
