Need some advice to get my niche

Hi,

I am newbie and learning how to get profitable niche.
I am searching 2 keywords, let say keywords A and keywords B. I am very interested with A but I noticed that this keyword has very high competition to get high rank and has many affiliate competition too. Keyword B has many traffic and low competition but I am not interested with.
So, which keyword should I take to be my niche?

thanks,
Samuel

Hi Samuel

I've tested a couple of niches using PPC and found that it is too expensive to get traffic on them. Perhaps a better strategy for these niches is to drive free traffic then receive PPC revenue using AdSense (or non Google equivalents).

When you are researching a niche you not only need lots of searches but you also need very low PPC cost if you are going to be able to get reliable traffic - which is what PPC gives you.

Please feel free to contact me if you want any more help. My site is linked below and if you register you'll go to a download page with links to my blogs, facebook, twitter etc.

Best wishes for your success

I use a free tool that helps me with my research and it is
freely available to download and will sit on your desk top.

It is completely safe and is not spyware.
I think you will like it.

On what I have seen a lot of people dont know about it.

for starters, I searched clickbank for high gravity. found that WoW was high enough, and I play so have some knowledge in the niche. This has helped since I don't have moeny for outsourcing and I am writing my own content.
After Clickbank, started looking at keywords using Traffic travis and google keyword tool. looking at google keyword tool will give you a good idea of the traffic the keywords are getting. At this stage dont wory about competition. get keywords with 1500 searches or more and start writing your articles. this is one of the stages where analasis paraplysis will stop most people from advancing. Just choose a few keywords and get something started. you can always analyze what isnt working later,
I have found it is easier to slightly change an article for different keywords later, than not making any progress at all
(excuse the horrible spelling, its been a long day)

Great answer James. Popular categories on eBay & Amazon are good too. Alexa.com has data on trends and traffic.
