    Hi guys,

    I'm not new at all at BHW but I was just wondering how do you guys find a profitable niche. Do you use a structured way to find a profitable niche? Or do you have other ways to find your niche? What software do you use to find competitor level etc.?

    I'm wondering what steps you take before you finally register the domain name and starting business.

    I'm really struggling to find good profitable niches..

    Nick

    Keyword research added with common sense will give you that idea. Also, it will take some failures before you become expert at this.

    Keyword research, competitor analysis, monetization ideas etc do help a great deal.

    Look for something that is everygreen, such as baby stollers = people are always having kids.
    Or
    Look for something you have an interest / passion in, such as a sport.


    Use Keysearch ( or a similar tool ) then Ahrefs to check competitiors.


    Or easiest option is buy a keyword service from on here, guys like @hacko , @Jayder offer such services

    One of the hardest parts is finding something that has volume (popularity) that isn't over-saturated. And even then, some niches convert at lower levels than others... making volume relative. And some niches dry up over time, like Pokemon Go did last year.

    Another hurdle is finding something where you can sell with good margins, and then finding a reliable source for your inventory.

    And after ALL that... making sure you can either rank in that niche organically for SEO or afford to bid in it for PPC.

    It isn't easy.

    Google Trends,News Sites are your best friend.You can also look in offline shops and see what they are selling that will give some ideas.

    Thank you all for your answers. Your information is powerfull, but I am also wondering which steps you take literally to find a niche. Or is it just a thought?

    Can be everything profitable, as far as you find a good and reliable advertiser and/or network.
    But I would say, check the most trending keywords (the last 7 days) on Google trends. Don't forget to target a country !

    Easiest way would be to fiind tons of niches on Flippa. Use SEO tools like ahrefs and semrush to deep research the competition and find profitable keywords.

    I think common sense taking big part to chose profitable niches! though you'll never know which one! you have to test it by yourself, after test! you will know profitable or not!

    personally adwords are profitable niches :) but of course not for everyone! ;)

    PS: watch forum! you'll see interesting phenomena! find solution! and voile! you got money ;)

    Any niche can be profitable. What's your experience and background, let's start with that.

    Walk around your town. Ask a simple survey to as many people as possible. Ask questions such as what is the last thing they bought online? What item they want to buy but hard to get? What item in their wish list and many more. Sort the data you get according to gender, age, purchasing power etc..

    Maybe you can get hidden gems there. After completed the survey give them small gift or tokens. Usually i give them a coupon with discount to purchase anything on my site.

    If you are into Adsense, any profitable niche is good for you.

    ask for pbn samples from lots of sellers and go through the links on their pages. You'll always outrank them as they are using public pbn's.
