Re: Choosing a niche or niches

Postby Andrea21 » Thu Aug 09, 2007 11:11 am

Hi,

Would starting a static blog or website about wild animals be a way to earn an income with adsense? For example, I'm interested enough to research and write a few articles about animals such as polar bear, elephants, and so on. I'd prefer to learn about something that I have a reasonable interest in.

First you would need to research the keywords associated with that niche. Start broad "animals" and work your way down to specifics such as "bears" and "tigers". Look at the number of searches - this will indicate the traffic potential.

Next, take the keywords you choose to work with, and type them into Google. How few/many Adwords are running for the phrases will tell you what kind of competition there is among advertisers for those keywords.

The more competition between advertisers, the higher the payout via Adsense. Little competition equals low payout.

Andrea,

By all means follow Lynn's advice, but expand on it a bit, and see how targeted you can get in wildlife. For example, you might find more uniqueness and less competition if you focused on one aspect of the animals, such as their habitat, their feeding habits, or their range.

You could even narrow that down, say, going further into range, you might discuss the changes in the animal's range over a period of time.

What she was saying is find a focus, where there is no competition, and see if you can generate some interest in that. Good luck. :-)
