Which Niches Make the Most Money

If you want to build a blog you are going to need a topic to write about!

Obviously you need to be interested in your topic or else you will soon get bored of writing it. We have already discussed that the key to making money online is generating traffic to your site or blog and the key to driving traffic is content. The content you write and the frequency you update that content is crucial to the future success of your blog, therefore you need to have an interest in the topic that you are going to write about.

I'm sure that it will come as no surprise to you that Making Money Online tops the list of profitable niches.

So which Niches do make the most money? Find out below:
  1. Making Money Online.
  2. Weight Loss.
  3. Quit Smoking.
  4. Credit and Credit Repair.
  5. Weight Gain and Muscle Building.
  6. Running a Home Business.
  7. Training Pets.
  8. Learning Techniques such as Memory and Speed Reading.
  9. Learning a Language.
  10. Relationships and Divorce.
  11. Gaming such as Runscape or Warcraft.

I found this list on a blog called More Money Blog and felt that I had to share the information; it's such an important piece of information to help give an understanding of the niches that provide the most significant income to the wannabe blogger.

It is also worth noting that all of the above list provide products or information that help to solve a problem. The exception is gaming of course which is a form of entertainment.

The main issue will be that the more successful the niche the more competitive it will be, thus rendering it harder to conquer.

I am pretty sure that in order to make a significant amount of money from blogging (especially via adsense) you will need to have a number of blogs in various niches. Personally I would build one or two blogs initially, then once you can update them simply (preferably once a day) and have carried out all of the relevant SEO work required start another one. Keep doing this writing articles that will be interesting for time to come until you have a large base of blogs for readers to visit.
