If you are in the process of starting your own business or simply want to find a few new things to write about, it may be time to explore some popular Blog Niches.
Which subjects are most popular?
For most people, the answer is a mixture of factors. But it is certainly easier to narrow down your choices if you break them down in terms of what to do first rather than simply what to say. The most popular topics online today would be, in no particular order;
In fact, you can expand this list into numerous niches if you so choose. But in most cases, it will simply be an expansion of one or two of these initial niches. So, let’s get started!
Researching the competition.
Now that you have decided on your first niche, it’s time to do some research on how to start a blog in that topic.
What kinds of content will appeal to readers in your target niche? What kinds of offers will stand out as enticing? What kind of readers are most likely to be motivated to start reading your blog posts? This research should lead to a list of the best blog niches.
You should also consider whether those niches will be profitable enough for you to pursue, and which are familiar to you.
Researching the competition is not to be competitive, but to not bore people with the same information they have read 5 blogs ago. Try to be unique, in a way that represents who you are as a person, give your content some JAZZ, a PERSONALITY, so readers don’t think twice reading your Blog within the first paragraph.
Try using google to search for similar topics to your Niche, decide on the best format and what others ARE NOT talking about.
What to Blog about?
Stuck on what to write about? how to start or how to present? to get some ideas, it is always a good idea to use Google and search for other niches that may resemble your own.
Maybe you like writing/blogging about a particular genre. If there aren’t many blogs out there about that particular genre, you could be one of the first bloggers to start a conversation on the matter!
Most Bloggers use Ads within their blogs to bring in some steady income, pocket money for providing people with 5-10min reads on subjects they find fascinating. Chances are that you won’t make any money. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try!
Write about likes, dislikes.
For example, if you love cats, you could write articles about pet care or grooming tips. It’s your blog niche after all, so it’s your duty to find one that you will enjoy writing about. In my opinion, this is the best part about starting a blog.
After you’ve decided what to write about, you need to choose your best blog niches. Use Google’s keyword tool to find the most searched for keywords in your niche. This way, you know which blog topics are already popular.
The best blog niches are usually the most profitable as well, so you don’t have to worry about losing money doing this!
Success! Start your Blog.
Once you’ve found a few good niche ideas, you’re ready to start creating content. As I said before, you want to write about things that you are passionate about. For example, if you love pets, you could create a blog about pet care. This is probably the easiest niche to start up.
You don’t have to worry about being profitable (yet), and you don’t have to deal with Google’s Panda filter.
When you have your own blog, it won’t take long to get started. Just make sure that you set up an easy-to-use website so that your readers can find their way around easily.
If you DON’T have a website
I highly recommend using one of the best CMS platforms in today’s world, WordPress. You can easily create your Blog using the Theme templates, that will instantly provide you with a very impressive website.
Using your Blog for Passive Income
There are many free tools available for bloggers to help them build a great site. It’s worth it to take advantage of these tools!
In terms of monetization, this comes down to two main options: Google AdSense or affiliate programs. With Google AdSense, you’ll want to place relevant ads on your blog.
Finally, finding an affiliate program that is related to your niche should be easy enough. Most people go to Amazon and ClickBank, which both do really well with niche-related products.
You just need to register for each one and get an affiliate ID. That’s it! Some of the best blog themes even come with their affiliate ID already set up!
The best blog niches are those that you have a specific interest in or know something about. Be strategic in your search for keywords and you should be able to dominate your competitive niches with relative ease.
Just remember that it takes time to build your readership and your income. Building a profitable blog takes a lot of work, so don’t expect to make a million blogs in your first week! But if you stick it out, you’ll be able to build large, residual incomes!
