How to Choose a Niche for a Blog

If you go through those thousands of E-books, who claim to tell you the "secrets" on how to make a money making blog, the very one thing which is missing and with which it, it’s useless to tell the rest and that’s how to choose a niche for a blog.
How to Choose a Niche for a Blog

Ok, so, there would be three types of niche sites:

  • Authority niche site
  • Mini authority niche site
  • Mini/micro niche site

I will discuss first of and will make two follow up posts for rest of the two later.

These sites are those who are on a niche but cover many niches and topics under one site name. Example would be my site Simple soup recipes; this site covers a niche which is simple soup recipes. Soup would be an authority site, (niche: A sub topic of a main topic, specifically targeting topic to specific class of people) it is covering soup recipes for those people who want it to be simple and fast.


  • Far more visitors than the other two.
  • People are more willing to pay.
  • Credibility is way more.
  • You can diversify your income streams.
  • You are not bounded to that niche only
  • Like my soup site, I have made many sub topics of the main sub topic, like simple tomato soup recipe. What these sites do is leave a reason for a reader to bookmark the page or visit again. People probably come to know that these sites are regularly updated so they need to visit that again and again.


  • Much more time to gain trust.
  • Much more time to get good SERPS.
  • Need to be regularly updated.
  • People tend to contact more on these sites, so you also need to keep replying.
  • New is not enough, i mean to say that it’s quite common to bear a year before you think you have made it.
  • So back to my site, it’s newly established, it needs to be regularly updated, and it would require a lot of SEO optimization.

But still i haven't told you how to choose a niche for a blog. For authority niche sites I would suggest to stick with these universal, high paying and ever green niches, included is a few videos in order to order a different or more informative opinion.

Self-help: everyone wants to "THE ONE" so making people know how to be, how to enhance, how to act good type of things work really well.

Health: 20th century brought the biggest trend to follow the health, so health could be an ever green niche. My blog soup recipes are also a part of that huge industry.

make money: if you never made money please don’t try this because there a many people who are doing this and finding nothing, if you haven’t earned, this topic doesn’t need you.

Education: By far one of my hot favorites and I will go for this topic, huge turnover and if you are able to build trust then you will feel like a king.

Solving problems/ tips: This can be a mix of anything, but people use internet to solve their problems and you also do it so think about a large opportunity.

Vehicles: After i saw how big industry that is i had to put it in this list, go through this niche in detail and observe what you are missing.
