    Anyone know which are the highest and lowest traffic niche sites?

    From my own stats I’m seeing ToughNickel and Bellatory do pretty well while Letterpile and Delishably get much less traffic, though it could just be me.

      Owlcation and Spinditty are best for me.

        Owlcation, Ballatory, Paired Life. I think it depends on one's articles. We would need hubpages to tell us which site did the most traffic, and it's not likely they would tell us.

      The majority of my articles are on either Spinditty or ReelRundown. My Spinditty stuff generally does better than my RR stuff.

      I'd tell you my Spinditty stuff outdoes everything else I've done, and that would be true, but I've also been mostly focused very specifically on that niche, and am probably more qualified in that than in any other. So I'm not sure my answer is very helpful. You should definitely go for whatever it is which excites you the most, but you should probably do the most work where you're both enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

      Dengarden seems pretty good too.

      I guess you want to know which niche sites are best, not best for each person who posts here. You can get numbers from several sources. Here are some posted by similarweb.com:

      Owlcation is at the top: 6.11 million page views per month
      levelskip                        3.99
      reelrundown                  3.41
      pethelpful                      2.92
      dengarden                     2.89
      spinditty                         2.67
      toughnickel                    2.06
      bellatory                         1.78

      There are other sites I did not look up but I think they are rated lower than these.

          I cannot vouch for the veracity of those numbers but they look reasonable. Even with those numbers, be sure to concentrate on a site that you know a lot about, even if it is one of those with less traffic.
          Glad I could help.

        That's interesting that the highest performing niche site is owlcation.  My owlcation hubs are my worst performers.  I can vouch for Dengarden being a middling performer.  Almost all of my hubs are on Dengarden and most are just middling performers.  Thankfully a few are superstars and keep the $$ rolling in.

          I would be very hesitant about writing any articles based on these numbers. If you were to get a lot of traffic from Dengarden it would be a lot better than a little from Owlcation, right?
          All of my articles are on Pethelpful. The only thing I could publish on Bellatory would be a satire.

            I write what I know most about which is gardening.  A few of my hubs that I consider gardening related, the HP editors have felt belong on other niche sites so I have a few hubs on Owlcation, Holidappy and Delishably.

      Numbers aren't everything if you are interested in earnings, however. There are many topics where you can get a lot of views and earn next to nothing, and others where you get less views but earn more.

        Very true!

          Mr. Goodman is a wise old timer around these parts. Before you get caught up in more complicated things, make certain you're formatting your pages to be as visually appealing as possible.

          Probably the single best thing I have learned about writing and publishing things online is you have to break up the text into lots of very small paragraphs.

          Big honkin chunks of text make the person trying to read your page lose interest. It's hard to keep reading when you lose your place due to a gigantic honkin glob of text.

          The text could be the most fantastic text in the history of text. Doesn't matter. Break up them paragraphs into small chunks. I like three sentence chunks, myself, but if three looks too small for a paragraph, I could do more for a chunk.

            Great advice! I do find myself throwing out massive paragraphs. Not really SEO or reader friendly I suppose.

            It took me a long time to realize that. I had to make much shorter paragraphs, people don't have the attention spans to read long ones.

        Are you talking about Amazon sales or CPM for a particular subject? Since HP pays by number of impressions, numbers are important here.
        (And, when numbers go down, so do Amazon sales: not everyone is going to by, so if 10,000 people read your article a day there are a lot more sales than if 1000 people read your article per day.)

          Right. Still new without that sweet snowball of traffic rolling. I’ve got a few Amazon links sprinkled in there. Maybe someday someone will use one. : )
