Choose A Niche For Your Blog – The Niche That YOU Will Dominate
Some Questions To Help You Choose The Right Niche
- The most important question you have to ask yourself is this: What are you passionate about?
It’ll be very hard for you to write regularly and authoritatively and be a go-to industry expert on a topic you don’t really care about. Passion tends to make the difference between amazing success and quiet failure.
- Do you intend to make money with this blog? Would you like it to be your primary income source?
This makes a big difference. If so, you’ll have to choose a nice that is not overly crowded. Regardless of the crowding, you’ll need to research your niche thoroughly and develop your own value proposition.
Research Your Niche And Learn The Landscape
Find the popular blogs and websites in your niche, study them closely, and visit them regularly.
Get to know the authors and regular contributors. Comment on these blogs regularly so they can get to know you too.
Find The Right Keywords To Target With Your Blog
Once you choose your niche, it’s crucial to find just the right keywords to target. This is a delicate balance between finding keywords that get enough search traffic and keywords that don’t have too much competition.
Don’t wait until your blog starts getting popular to figure out which keywords to target, or you’ll waste a lot of time and effort and end up starting from scratch.
It’s far better to spend the time upfront.
