    So I was looking at this one site

    Code:
    h**p://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com
    and realized, people like to read random funny shit thats found on the internet. so was wondering, would something like this be a good niche? Of course wouldn't just focus on white people, but different ethnicity too, like say "things asian people do" or "how to be gangster" something along that line..

    the only thing i'm concerned with is in the long run you run out of ideas on what to post....

    That's a funny site, but it's not goign to make you money unless you get a book deal. If you want to make money blogging, stick with products or other niches with high keyword values.

    I am about to set up two autoblogs pertaining to student loan consolidation and direct loans. My question is, when trying to choose a domain I realize you want it to be keyword rich but when doing the keyword analysis, how many monthly searches is enough and but not too much. How many monthly searches for my 'domain term' should I look for and stay away from? More than 1k a month but less than 5K per month?

    it may attract a ton of visitors but the advertisers will pay low for these niche, try the ones that want banner ads or the one that pays in views rather than conversions and clicks.

    It takes a lot of $0.10 clicks to make money on a generic themed blog like that. As others have said, its better to focus on a niche that might pay some bills.

    Products people buy, and will research on the web or items with high adsense use and price.

    Before you even start to worry about whether you will run out of things to post, you should worry about whether not your niche will make you money. I can blog about anything and everything all day long, but if there is no money or very little to me made in the niche, I would rather not even start.

    Go get yourself some magazines and look through the advertisements, find some stuff that's new. You'll have less competition and it will be easier for you to start.
