how to find niche for blogging

Step 1) Decide your niche(topic)

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

Based on my experience I recommend you to start a blog on such a topic in which you have good knowledge & experience.

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 need to gain a lot of knowledge on that topic. So why not start a blog on a topic in which you have good knowledge & experience.

Deciding a niche is a crucial part & for that read, the below points very carefully

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 about that topic by reading books, 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 longer time.
  • Profitability: How much the topic is profitable?  

Just take a pen and paper & note down the topics which you are more interested in & then do these 3 things

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

If your topic has 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 keywords 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 also outrank your competitors.

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

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

You can use free tools to check that also.

Here I will show you how to do that exactly.

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

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

How to start a blog and make money in india

To start a professional blog you need to buy your own domain & hosting.

There are lots of hosting providers available 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)

Points in keep in mind before buying a Domain name
  • Choose a clear & short name– You must choose a short & clear domain name, as people will recognize your blog through that domain name.
  • Include keywords: try to include main keyword in your domain name. For Example: you can have a look at my domain name it is jitenbloggingtips.com.

  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. (it is also good from an SEO(search engine optimization) point of view)

Include the main keyword related to your niche (topic) that you have selected for blogging.

  • Go for .com – if you want to target audience all over the world then you must buy .com extension but if you want to target only specific country audience then you can select domain extension as per your requirement. For example: If you want to target Indian audience then you can buy .in domain extension.
  • 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
  • Trusted hosting provider
  • Quality hosting
  •  Support
  • Up time
