    Is it still profitable for new bloggers stating a fresh blog on already saturated niche?

    Yes, if you know what to do after and if you have good budget to go head2head with your competitors.

    Although saturated, the potential to generate money from that niche should never be diminished, as there will always be advertisers or other online business that specifically wants business from that niche, and they are willing to pay money for those specific traffic.
    For instance, Adsense income has in fact increased over time, as more advertisers are going online and they all want that specific piece of pie, and with more people paying for those traffic, that would simply drive the cost higher. Cost higher = better income for you.
    Not sure about starting a fresh new blog, as most things now depends on the authority of the site. So getting something that already has authority, or good authority links pointing to it, or has good amount of social signals, those would definitely be in the limelight and easier to dominate that niche.

    It is but you need to do hard work to find good niche with less competition and earning potential.

    It is better to focus on easy to rank keywords. Smart work will give more returns in less effort.

    A saturated niche means more competition.
    A saturated niche also usually means more people looking for it.
    Doing a "build it and they will come" plan for the blog will net you $0 +/- $50.
    You want to go after a saturated market? Build a plan, build a strong stable of keywords/content. Read plenty here to build your game plan.

    A saturated niche also means it works but yeah besides SEO you need to be active a LOT on SM.

    It is still profitable if you offer exceptional content. You would have to make yourself noticed in the sea of bloggers that have already established a name in the blogging world. It may be tough, and it may take time and money, but I don't see why it shouldn't be profitable.

    Why not? Blogging is always working.
    We have to maintain the blog properly so before start blogging, learn about that and then start your blogging carreer.

    The more niche is saturated it means there a lot of money to be made.

    Blogging is always was profitable and it will stay the same way for a long time.

    It depends on the niche and how you monetize if you will only monetize with Google Adsense or another ad network it might not be so great, but if you do affiliate marketing, well you can earn a lot of money from it.

    This scenario is kind of harsh. Maybe try lesser saturated niches if you're just starting.

    Blogging has become less something that you do on its own, and more as an addendum to something else. Like having another product or niche, and then writing a blog to increase SEO for that service/niche.

    Of course, blogging is something that will never be out of business.

    That being said, the road ahead is tough these days. Unlike the past, it's a bit difficult to survive the pre-profit days.

    But, worth a shot any day of the week because if you pursue there is no telling how far you can go with your blogging pursuit.

    Yes of course, according to the niche that you choose and based on your site SEO(both ON page and OFF page SEO). If you don't have enough knowledge of the site SEO, better to hire an expert to maintain your website SEO. If you did all well, your website will meet a great revenue and make your pocket full of money. ;)
