    Hi, I just wanted to ask if ranking an upcoming niche earlier (0 searches a month) and getting into the first spot will give me some advantage when the niche is out and going viral? Will it take a lot of time before someone out ranks me?
    Thanks

    I tried something similar with upcoming movies.
    The fact is that it was SURPRISINGLY difficult - I did achieve rank 1 eventually but when regarding the amount of work and money I put into it, it sure as hell didn't prove to be profitable in my case.

    Unless your niche is "BRAND NEW" it will probably not be as easy as you reckon. Existing authority sites in the "parent" niche will often get ahead unless you spend a lot of time and money (such as I did).

    I'm getting my foot in the door of a new niche too. Well, not so new but the buzz is really starting now. Yes, I think it is a good idea to get your site in there now as the OG established site. Like it was mentioned above, I too did have to spend considerable time and money to get my site on page one for my new terms, but it will pay off several times over. I'm very glad I started now with the new niche, makes for a lot of return visits too if you're going for branding.

    When big sites start putting articles up in the niche, they can outrank you in no time.

    But don't let that put you off. If you think you have hit on a good idea, then go for it. Build a website, create a buzz about it and get a following going on social media. Best of luck.
