Bloggers write whatever they like, but they make money only if the content produced by them is profitable.

They make money only if there are visitors for their niche (travel), there should be peoples who are searching on that topic.

The income of the blogger varies according to the niche of their blog.

For example, With the same number of visitors to the blog per month, the income of a food blogger differ from the income of a finance blogger.

Before you select any niche, you should keep in mind that,

Blogging is 75% writing and expressing your thoughts to the visitors with information which you knew.

And the balance 25% covers other factors like promotion. So, you should be good at writing.

An old English proverb says, “To be good at writing, you have to read a lot”.

Ok, let us dive into the topic,

1. Write down the topics which you are interested in.

First, write down all the niches you knew and interested in.

For example, I am interested in money making ways, films, Spicy recipes, music, and many others.

Nowadays, bitcoin is trending well and it’s also one of the niches, but remember, choose an evergreen topic, not a seasonal one.

Think of, whether its possible to write more blog posts approximately 50 nos, around the niche you choose.

For instance, it’s easy for me to write posts on online money making comparing to kids health issues. So, I prefer to select online money making a niche.

But if you are from the medical background you may write easily about health topics.

2. Choose the topic which has a Profitable market.

Among the written topics, do some research to select the niche, which has a profitable market.

Use google trends and keyword planner to find the most searchable words and trending search terms.

For example below snapshot shows there is a huge search volume for personal loans, which is a good sign to select.

3. Do some research on topics you cover

After exploring keyword research, check for the availability of sample sites on the same niche,

If you decide finance and personal loans as your niche, then google for a personal loan and check for any sample websites are available.

If you found low search volume and the least number of websites, its better to avoid the niche.

check for the facebook fan pages for the niche.

Search for the facebook group for the niche, Usually, the best niche will have a facebook group and fan pages with more likes.

And also, while deciding you need to consider the availability of affiliate programs, proven methods, and competitors also.
