Top 6 niches to start profitable niche blogging


Gone are the days when blogging used to be treated just as a hobby or a part time job. These days, surprisingly, many youngsters and working folks are looking at blogging as a full time job! At least they are striving to make it their full time job! This is something positive, for the blogging scenario on a whole. For blogging to be looked upon as a source of money, it certainly must have some stuff in it. Yes, indeed, blogging can help you earn good bucks! But a lot depends on the way you monetize your blog and the niche that you choose to dive in for your blogging endeavors. This post is solely dedicated to niches, the niches that are most fertile and profitable for blogging! Do read the entire post, analyze things and select one that suits you the best!

Profitable blogging niches listed below!

Why choosing the perfect niche matters when it comes to blogging?

Blogging is not as easy as you think it to be. It is not rocket science either. It is somewhere between the above mentioned tasks! Yes, almost! Choosing a particular niche helps you focus your energy, enthusiasm and hard work towards that particular field, helping you set up an authority blog in that area. This also benefits users of search engines. They will get all required information about a niche on your blog! A win-win situation for both parties! This is what search engines like Google wants.

Selecting a niche gives you clear idea about what you have to do. It is like setting up a boundary so that you can focus your efforts on it. I’m not against the notion of operating a multi niche blog, but I must say that niche blogs are pretty easy to monetize and fun to operate, as long as you have the necessary knowledge in that field.


Profitable niches to start a blog on-

Given below is a list of some of the most rewarding niches, that can shower upon you dollars! Please note that the mode of monetization differs from niche to niche, for getting optimal results. I’ve discussed the monetization part too, along with each entry. Let us get this started! Note that the list is not ranked. It has been randomly numbered.


#1 Education Niche


Wondering why I listed it on top? Ah, it is my favorite niche, that’s why! I own and operate handful of education based blogs, some of them being micro niche blogs! Yes, blogs on niches within education niche!

I’ve already written an article about the 5 major types of blogs related to education field, that one can start and maintain effortlessly. Do give that article a read to know in detail about those kinds of rewarding blogs.

There are some micro niches within education field that are financially much rewarding. Some of those fields are- studying abroad field, student loan, student insurance etc.

The best mode to monetize education based blogs is by using AdSense ads. Since the traffic that you will be getting is going to be constituted of students, there is no need to fear about ‘ad blindness’. Ad blindness is something that the webmaster traffic shows. I’ve noticed that students tend to click on ads that are useful to them. This is when AdSense, with its targeted ads, comes handy! Believe me, CPC rates are awesome for topics like studying abroad, loans etc! A few clicks can help you earn decent bucks!

One may also make use of affiliate marketing on such blogs. Money can be made by marketing books, CDs, study material and similar stuff.


#2 Technology Niche


A solid niche, but already too saturated! The excessive saturation is the only drawback that this niche has. There are so many tech blogs out there! Every second blogger I know has one!

Despite the cut throat competition in this niche, more and more folks are jumping in and starting new tech blogs! This, I must say, is the beauty of this field! Players are willing to risk things and face the competition. This ultimately shows that this niche has lots of potential too!

Traditionally, it is AdSense that most tech bloggers rely upon, for making bucks. One may also make use of modes like affiliate sales (electronic items), CPA networks etc to make those extra bucks!


#3 Health Niche

health belly

The number of sub and micro niches that this particular field offers is insane! This field offers some of the most lucrative CPC rates when it comes to AdSense program!

The special thing about this niche is that it never runs out of steam! We all know that health is being taken care of by folks from around the world. They tend to make use of the internet to search about health issues, remedies, suggestions etc.

The point I want to prove is that search volume never goes down, when it comes to health field! Based on seasons, the search volume and traffic only increases. For example, during monsoon, people will search more about ‘monsoon healthcare tips’, ‘food tips to follow during monsoon’ etc.

Further, there are sub-niches within health field, which never runs out of steam. Some of such prominent ones are- beauty care, weight loss, liposuction, plastic surgery, ayurveda, Yoga, massage and spas etc. The list goes on folks! In short, this field is an epic one! I must also tell that CPC rates are insane for most of the above mentioned sub niches, when it comes to AdSense program!

Another advantage is that majority of the traffic will tolerate and even click on relevant ads. Unlike webmaster folks, traffic, to a large extent won’t be ‘ad blind’! Good news, isn’t it?


#4 Blogging, SEO Niches

WordPress CMS

If you ask me, I’d say that these two niches go hand in hand! One can start a single blog that deals with both these topics. If one has the right skills, he/she may even add on Internet Marketing to this list too!

When it comes to this niche, AdSense is not the preferable method to earn money. Yes, you guessed it right. In this case, most of the traffic will be constituted of webmaster folks! And like me and you, they are ‘ad blind’! Even on seeing relevant ads, they ignore those ads!

So, the best thing to do is to take on affiliate marketing campaigns, writing sponsored reviews etc. The key is to target new bloggers, who are out there learning the basics of blogging. Make sure that your blog caters to them. This way, it won’t be difficult to market your affiliate products to them and make good income in the process!

Also, you may make your blog a portfolio to showcase your knowledge and works. This way, you can attract potential clients, who will hire you for SEO works! Also, using the blog, one can sell and market own products like- E Books, Guides, Coaching programs, Consultancy service etc.


#5 Insurance and loans Niche


A very high paying niche it is. But at the same time, I would like to call it a dull niche. Maybe that’s because I don’t have much interest in this niche!

The point I want to prove is that the CPC rates associated with this niche is amazing, in most cases. So, earning using AdSense is not a bad idea after all!

But I’d also like to urge you folks to not select this niche only considering the money factor. One can easily buy a domain and start blogging on this niche. But in the long run, it is passion, interest and knowledge that matters. Without them, the blog will go from good to bad to worse!

Unless you have knowledge, don’t mind indulging in these niches. But you always have the option to hire someone for writing articles related to this field!


#6 Property information listing/Real Estate Niche

Real Estate Property

Just like the above mentioned entry, this one is high paying, but dull at the same time! Further, there are biggies already present in this niche. The SERPs will be dominated by sites like OLX!

The trick is to focus on local market. List local property and make extensive use of social media for traffic. Since the CPC rates are good, few clicks can also work wonders! The added advantage is the fact that the target audience is not ‘ad blind’ to a great extent!

That’s it, those were some high flying, high rewarding niches that I usually recommend to my readers. But folks, don’t just chase money! Only jump into a particular niche if you think you have sufficient knowledge to churn out quality articles, guides, tutorials etc. If you still want to exploit a field, consider hiring a good writer who is knowledgeable in that particular field.

    I think you’re missing a ton of solid niches geared toward women, such as, home decor, fashion, wedding, beauty, and mommy bloggers.

      Hi Corinna,

      Yes, I admit it. I missed hordes of niches geared towards women. Thanks for mentioning them here. I must also say that they are very rewarding ones too!

      I just listed some niches that I worked on or my friends worked on. That’s why I didn’t listed the ones you mentioned here.

      Thanks again for adding up more entries!
