    I think this should be posted in a different section. But I feel like you need this to be answered so I'll give it a shot.

    What are you passionate about? Is it traveling, is it a Chinese recipe site or a healthy food recipes? What are you willing to write and research about for at least an hour a day everyday until you reach your goal? Who are the competitors in your space? What are they doing to be successful? How are they getting traffic? How are they keeping traffic? What does the market want? What is a gap that your competitors are not doing that you could fill? What are the main keywords you should be targeting? What are the long tails you should be targeting?

    Those are the questions you should be asking yourself. In your research you should find those answers and sometimes those answers you may not like, but that is why you research first. You say you have researched but you have not given us any numbers to go off yet you are asking us what is the most popular/difficult/profitable. The answer is that it depends a lot on what you target, who your competitors are and your own dedication to working on the site.

    Put simply I feel that you lack clarity, you lack a clear direction of what you want to achieve and even the method for it. That's what is causing your indecisiveness on what niche you want to go after. I am pretty sure you thought process is "how do I make money, I'll build a website and throw up adsense YAY! Easy money!" and while that can be true for some it depends a lot on luck and more so on a lot of research. That's not necessarily a bad thing because a lot of people start off like that. But the difference between someone who will succeed and someone who won't are the ones who have the dedication and decisiveness to get those answers and create something they are passionate about.

    Hmm rereading a lot of what I wrote I sound like a bit of a douche. That is obviously not my intention, I just hope you are able to take something from this post to use for your site. If you take anything please take the questions, expand upon them and answer them yourself.
