    Hey,
    I'm starting a journey in IM and I think I might've found a niche I'd like to make my own.

    The thing is, I don't know how narrow a niche can be to still be profitable with hosting and domain costs in mind?
    The main keyword (the dotc0m) domain is bought (and apparently being auctioned out for like $3k) but the n3t and 0rg ones are free for grabs.

    The keyword has 3000 monthly searches global and low competition..

    I'm looking to make money via adsense and PPC, is this niche way too thin?


    Love, bajs123

    It is too small when the time and money you spend are not worth the money you will make. It is up to you to decide whether or not the investment is worth it for you.

    3000 monthly searches is ok if there is money to be made in the niche, what does the cpc stat look like?

    And I have to say this; you registered in 2008, what on earth took you so long? :D

    3000 monthly searches is enough, if the competition is low then go for it.

    A niche is too small when you have a five year old BHW account and you only thought of 5 posts to share with us during all that time ;)

    Forgot my pw.

    What CPC stat are you talking about? I have the keyword planner up and I don't know what I should be looking for.
