    Popular categories (ads you see frequently on the Internet such as: health, beauty, dating, and how to make money) tend to be very saturated. You can also tell how competitive a niche is by using Adwords' Keyword Planner or the research tool from Bing Adcenter.

    You need to find your compromise between niche(s) with as low results as possible in SERP and as high amount of searching as possible.

    If you see for your keywords on google that displays a lot of ads and in the first results are big players then this isnt good for you :)

    Niche becomes competitive when people willing to spend more money on it by thinking of getting it back twice.

    To check competition you need to check common keywords for that
    industry and see how competitive Google says they are and how many
    people search for those keywords.
