    How do you find the perfect niche to write about?

    Are there any tools you use to determine the traffic a certain niche could bring before you write about the topic? I'm really interested in natural wellness and medicinal herbs but I can't seem to find that perfect topic that has not been covered yet. Any suggestions on how I should go about researching niches?

    I've written an article on niche picking which may help you out quite a bit. Roughly you'll want to see how much competition as well as popularity amongst the general public a particular niche has, but the article has much more detail and other adivise, making it a great read if you have the time.

    Most likely just about every topic has been covered, but it is important to write about what you know and give it your personal touch.  You may have experiences to share that others who write about the same topic do not, and that is what makes the difference.

      Thank you! I beginning to see that everything has been covered but there is the rare occasion where I know more than the article provides. I will definitely start relying more on my personal experiences.

    Focus on what you're already good at or what really interests you. People prefer to read something new and get real insights into how something works, or how to do something better. Even if your interests are out of the ordinary, the results can be astounding. The more helpful your content is, the better the outcome.

      djdaniel, thank you for you insights! I believe that I'm going to start writing more hubs based on my personal experiences.

    The only way to find the perfect niche to write about is to write and write about anything that you fancy writing. When you have written a lot, you will naturally find the answer to the question.

    Every topic under the sun has been worked to death. Ralph Waldo Emerson said: "If a man has good corn or wood, or boards, or pigs, to sell, or can make better chairs or knives, crucibles or church organs, than anybody else, you will find a broad hard-beaten road to his house, though it be in the woods."

    Marketers, however, will tell you that what Emerson said is not true. You need to have great marketing skills. So, coming back to your poser, it's not what you write but how well you market them. Yet, great marketing alone will not help, if you have a lousy product or a badly-written hub. You need both to succeed.

      As always a worth reading answer from you Walterpoon, you are right apart from the niche we have to focus on marketing it well, it is perhaps in the ratio of 80:20 where 80% is marketing and 20% article writing, i believe it in this way

      Younghopes, you are right. 80% is marketing. In fact, a mediocre product can become a bestseller with good marketing. And an excellent product can only have mediocre sales with poor marketing. Is that not why marketers are paid so well?

      WalterPoon, thank you for your amazing comment! I believe that I really need to work on marketing more. It is (I believe) my weakest point!

    Traffic and niche topic to me are not related in the sense that I go by the amount of traffic to find my niche. My niche topic was mainly determined because of the mental illness I have.

    I'm passionate about it and use all of my writing skills to approach this topic in a purely personal way mixed with tips and tricks on how to handle Bipolar Disorder.

    There are many Hubs on this but I found a way to write about it differently. Traffic is low on my Hubs but that has to do with my lack of interest in SEO and backlinking. My comments say enough though and that's what I'm here for:-)

      Escobana, thank you! I shall try to find a different take on subjects that I already have knowledge of.
