    I am not asking for keywords, I am good enough at finding them that in any niche I will be able to find enough keywords to bring a website to a couple thousand views a day.

    I want to know what your ideas on topics are.

    I currently have a small authority website on dogs where I get about 800 views a day that I am growing, should I try to keep in the same niche and have 2 pet authority sites, or should I move away and try a new niche?

    If you think I should try a new one, can you guys just toss out some ideas.

    ie, automotive, gardening, camping, etc.

    Are you making money off those 800 views a day?

    If you enjoy what you are currently doing, keep at it. 800 views a day is a pretty nice number to be honest. Scale it up!

    I am making money, but ATM it only a couple bucks a day. I can really only scale my current site to about 1500 unique hits a day until I am going for keywords that only get 100 searches a month..

    I would really like to find a niche where I would be forced to do some research for each article, and I would learn stuff at the same time.

    Take risk's, if you FAIL at a certain niche then learn from it :)

    Don't know until you try a new niche!

    You want to target keywords that only get 100 searches a month? I always find picking a niche dificult as well. Just rememeber, it will be easier if it is something you enjoy writing and researching about.

    no I DONT want to target them as they would take over a year to generate the amount I spend on them...
    I was saying that my current site can only double, after that it will be staying stagnant.
