    As the title suggests, this is my exact question. I cant seem to get the answers so any advice is great.

    How do you know if the niche is profitable? I'm aiming for the amazon route of searching products but I'm not sure which product group or niche would be good.

    Do you go with a product with a lot of high search keywords related to your niche? Do you go with products youre sure has competition or low ranking competition?

    Really whats the thought process that will make you pick a product/niche to promote?
    Thanks alot!

    The best way to know is to test it. Weight loss is one of the most profitable niches out there and i've made exactly 0.00 in the niche :).

    Can i make a site around a certain niche, and rank for a few good keywords in that niche, thats usually my expectations of a site.
    You still have a few hoops to jump before you can make any cash, so just pick a few niches,
    research the products in that niche for keyword search volume. Use keywords everywhere plugin.
    You won't know till you try though, but as long as your products are in demand, and you can write good enough sales copy,
    then you could be on to a winner.

    If the product is being sold on Amazon then ideally if you're able to drive traffic to the page you should be able to convert that traffic on Amazon and make money off of it.

    I think first of all you need to make a market researh. Try to test the niche, find most popular competitors, make some analysis and then when you'll get the result in numbers - you will see is that niche is profitable or not :) That's my opinion.

    Some people go for low search volume/low competition for high priced items
    3% of $1,000 x2 is better than 5% of $50 x20

    Some people go for high volume
    3% of $50 X1,000 is better than 5% of $1,000 x5

    Some people go for a broad niche
    100,000 available products vs 100 available products

    Figure out what sort of approach you want.

    I'd target unpopular niches that are not that profitable, and you'll more likely earn some money, instead of targeting competitive niches that everyone knows are profitable. Don't take the common route. It's better to choose 10 unpopular niches as a beginner, then 1 popular niche.

    I agree with patriotnews.... it is about the strategy you choose and feel most comfortable with and where the math and roi is in your favor. As DA said, testing it with adwords is a great shortcut to understanding the potential success and then researching the competing sites will help you understand the cost to sit on top of the competing sites.

    I'm sure people will tell you there are hundreds of ways to figure this out, but you'll probably found it eventually comes down to experience.

    You could try things like the Google Keyword Tool (sorry, you'll have to google it, I can't post links yet) to see how many monthly searches a particular keyword (in this case, the main keyword(s) for your nice) are getting.
    If Google doesn't have enough data, it may (may!) not be the greatest niche. If it's getting over 500,000 monthly searches, it might (might!) be slightly more profitable

    I can also add that to ensure the product you are going to promote is selling regularly then research the amazon sales rank...certain salesrank in a niche will ensure that there are sales on amazon every day for that item.

    as example, a sales rank of an item in the amazon toys category of 10,000 and under is getting around 242 sales per month on amazon.

    historic amazon sales data can also be found for free on keepa and on camelcamelcamel

    How do you know if the niche is profitable?
    Simple.
    Any niche is profitable as long as you have the traffic..

    Traffic = $$$

    Do a lot of keyword research and go with your gut feeling.

    Niche is most important for a profitable site that need a KW research and analyse your competitors,while creating a site you need a platform for a product that white hat and black hat techniques,without a niche i don't think you can get more views and results possible,choose best niche KW after analysis and if you thought of choosing a niche where adult and weight loss works well.
