    Hi guys, I want to show and tell an extremely easy method for finding niches and ideas for your projects. You know how everyone says it?s sooo hard finding a good niche, even if you read many ways to do it (go to Amazon or eBay and look at what people search for, look at the news, Yahoo Buzz etc. and so on, blah blah).

    Now let show you the simplest way to do this. Disclaimer: I?m not inventing the wheel here, many of you will know about this, it may be already documented on the forum (too lazy to search and see :p ), but I do believe that this could be a reminder for the most experienced and a good starting point for the beginners. So, without further a due, here are the steps (I?ve made some screenshots to make it easier to understand):

    1. Start from a niche keyword, phrase, something you read on the forum and in a newspaper, or anything you can think of. In this particular case I was browsing on the web and saw an ad that or something saying: ?Find a Babysitter Now!?. So I thought let?s give it a try and searched Google for this keyword phrase.

    2. In the Google results page, look for a website that looks like a niche one (keyword in title or/and description) and, if possible, is placed fairly high in the results.

    [FONT=&quot]3. Go to that website and check it, make sure it really is a niche website[/FONT]

    [​IMG]

    4. Now comes the interesting part: go to yougetsignal.com/tools/web-sites-on-web-server/ (or just search on Google for ?reverse IP? and select any other site). Let me explain what this site does: it gives you the possibility to do a Reverse IP Lookup, that means to find other websites hosted at the same IP address as what domain you enter in the search field. And, since people making money with niche websites often use a single hosting account for their sites, this is a possible result you can get from the Reverse IP search:

    5. See what happened? YOU JUST FOUND ALL THAT GUY?S NICHE WEBSITES!!! And, since we already saw one of his sites ranking high in Google, there?s a pretty good chance he?s experienced at this, has made proper keyword research for the other websites also.


    6. Let?s search now for another good example of good niche site, from this guy?s portfolio :)

    [​IMG]


    7. Let?s pick this website above, we?ll search on Google for his keyword (which is pretty obvious):


    [​IMG]

    8. Again, another good website from this guy. But the niche might still have plenty of space, so it?s worth investigating.

    9. I think you?ve got the idea by now. When you find a feasible niche among the reverse IP results, you go ahead and investigate it, look for competition, $ value and overall potential and pick some winners out, then create yourself a niche site in that field and work on ranking it.

    I hope I was clear with the steps, again I know it?s not a fabulous innovation this system but then again I?m sure it will be useful for many. If you have any questions, I?m here.

    Yeah this is a pretty good method, unless like jason said the person is using shared hosting. However, you will still find the other websites the person hosts, just not that easily.

    Exactly, even if it's shared you still have a decent chance of finding others' niche sites and get ideas from there ;)

    This is interesting but why not just offer people a free backlink on a PR ranked site. You'll then have a list of keywords, niches, and sites to consider cpc, competitiveness, and ranking

    That's a good idea if you do have a PR ranked site, which most people just starting don't. But still, this is something worth considering if you have the means for it.

    I use spammed sites to harvest keywords, niches, and the applicable site urls, but I will also incorporate your method in the future.

    Great stuff and a nice way of thinking outside of the box!

    One method that I like to do is to pay attention to upcoming trends by staying active on various forums and browsing the magazines at the local bookstores. Often you'll see signs of "trends" before they get super popular by browsing these areas.

    For example, I found a few EMD domains of some upcoming games by simply seeing the same game mentioned on a variety of forums that I regular.

    That's a good idea, always pays to be aware of new trends before they "explode".

    This definitely can be improved with your own twists, had some nice feedback from guys who build on this and expanded it further...I'm thinking of new ways to use this, will share after finding some successful ones.

    You just saved me a lot of money. I'll buy you a beer sometime.

    Another good website to reverse engineer websites is

    Code:
    hxxp://website.informer.com
    If anybody knows of a free website that allows you to find all of the websites of an owner please share with the board. I've spent a shitload of money using domain tools for this information.
