how to find niche for blogging

Step 1) Decide your niche(topic)

Before you start a blog make sure to stick with a particular topic based on your interest and also that has enough searches on the internet.

The first step is to Decide a niche (topic) for your blog; Either you are building a free or a professional blog.

Based on experience, my recommendation for you is to start a blog on such a topic in which you have good knowledge & experience.

Even with a little bit of knowledge on any specific topic, you can start, as with time you can gain more knowledge and can expertise in your niche.

For example: if you are good at recipe making & have enough knowledge about it then you can start a cooking blog on which you can share content related to recipes only.

If you will start a blog on a topic about which you are unfamiliar then you will get stuck, because you will not have knowledge about that topic & it will take a long time.

At first, you will need to gain a lot of knowledge on that topic, So make a smart decision that will not feel you regret in future.

Deciding a niche is a crucial part & for that focus on the below points.

Ask these questions to yourself.

  • Does my niche (topic) is searchable?? (Are people searching about the topic which I am going to select?)
  • Do I have enough knowledge about that topic?? (If you have a little bit of knowledge about the topic then also don’t worry you can start it, just you need to start gaining more knowledge on it by consuming books, and watching videos related to that topic)
  • Competition: How much is the competition of that niche (topic) {you can use keywords research tools to find the competition of that topic)
  • Your interest: After all your interest matters a lot. You must select a topic based on your interest on which you can write for a long time.
  • Profitability: How much the topic is profitable?  

Just take a pen and paper & note down the topics in which you are most interested & then perform these 3 tasks.

  1. Find search volume: you must first know about the search volume of the topic, which means how much people are searching about that topic on google – you can use the free keyword research tool ubersuggest

If your topic has a good search volume then it is well & good.

2. Competition: you need to check the competition of that topic & for that, you can also use some free keyword research tools.

If your topic will have low competition then it is good to go with & if it has high competition then don’t worry about it because you can even write high-quality content & can outrank your competitors.

3. Find CPC(cost per click)– This is the most important metric that you must check before you select any topic for blogging, it is profitability.

Go with a high CPC(cost per click), if you found a topic with 0 CPC then don’t go with that because that will not give you any High return in the future.

You can use free tools to check that also.

Here Is how you can do that.

For example, I decided on a niche(topic): fitness

Now I will go to the free tool Ubersuggest & will search the term “fitness” as shown below in the figure

Domain name means a website address, for example, my blog name is jitenbloggingtips.com & hosting means servers where website data & files are stored, both plays an major role in blog creation.

Getting started with free blogging platforms is quite easy, they offer free hosting and their sub-domain that you can use and can start, but the drawback is here that you don’t even own your blog and can’t add more functions that pull you back in many aspects.

Now let me walk you through the steps on how to build a blog professionally using WordPress software.

Step 3How to start a WordPress blog

Here are simple steps:

  • Buy domain & hosting
  • Installing WordPress (popular software )

How to start a blog and make money in India

Starting a Self-hosted WordPress blog is not as complicated as it looks, just you need to know how to start it correctly without messing up.

Below are straightforward steps to build it within 10-15 minutes.

To build it you need hosting, a domain name, and the internet connection that you use daily.

There are plenty of hosting providers out there in the market but to run your blog smoothly you need to buy hosting from a trusted & reputed company.

Before you buy a domain name & hosting you must keep some below-given points in mind. (Note: many hosting provides a free domain name for 1 year with their hosting plan that can save your money on domain name)

Important point before you buy a Domain name
  • Choose a clear & short name– People will recognize your blog online through a domain name, for example just have a look at my domain name, and what you observe?? Something Related to blogging, isn’t it?? but it looks a little long naa, but IT makes sense, am I right??

Make sure that your domain name looks meaningful and having a short and clear name will help people in remembrance of your blog address online easily.

  • Include keywords: Try to make your domain name relevant to your niche(topic) because that will help you in better ranking as well in google.

  I have included the main keyword “blogging” in my domain name & I have added the keyword blogging because my niche (topic) is blogging & you must also do the same with your domain name.

  • Go for .com – .Com is A Top-level domain and it is related to people’s psychology, just think while searching any website, what comes to your mind is .com right?? for example, amazon.com, canva.com, jitenbloggingtips.com.

Another benefit is you can target your blog globally using the .com domain, but if you only want to target a specific country audience then you can purchase a country-specific domain, for example, .in for India, .us for the United States.

  • Don’t include a brand name– Always remember not to include any brand name in your domain name, as it can put you in trouble.

Points to keep in mind before buying Hosting

  1. Hey Jiten,

    That’s nicely put . Truly now Indians also have started blogging and started earning good money. Its just that we started late.

    But better late than never

    It’s nice that you included the micro-blogging sites like Linkedin too!!!

  2. The word ‘No Experience’ you used in the title tempted me to read the blog post. It’s out of the box thinking. Blogging definitely needs no experience in the past but dedication and interest in learning new skills are what make people successful bloggers.
