Niche Writing Using Your College Papers

Updated on August 30, 2014
Source


Niche writing is when you write about specific topics that will have a limited audience. I never considered niche writing, however it appears I have done just that. I currently enrolled for an accounting degree and I take a lot of classes, a little over 90 credits in the last year. And with all of these classes comes loads of essays and projects, chances to learn and write about a large variety of topics that would have never interested me otherwise.


In these papers upon papers I would have to write, sometimes 8 a week. I would write on everything from polynomials expressions to cost accounting to air pollution. After 3 terms of wasted papers, I decided to publish a few, I mean why not. A lot was learned and I like to share with anyone who wants to know because knowledge can be power. It can also equal dollars, so why not make a few dollars with information you will have to research and write about anyways?


Most of the writing did not usually gain much attention, however a funny thing would happen, all of a sudden I would have several hits a day on a few for several days and then back to the straggle. You can almost tell when certain classes were on certain weeks of study because I would get heavy hits on the corresponding material. College is rough and just think of how many times you have googled something for an explanation that you could actually get. The books are stiff and sometimes confusing so sometimes reading another summation of a subject can help click in the material for a person. This is what I hope I can do for whoever those hits are come school time.


KEYWORDS


I hear a lot about keywords and there is a science of it apparently. I just use tags and keywords that I myself would use for the material or that I may have used to further my look into the subject. Write the subject shooting for an A, write to explain the subject as best as you can. Learn what you can about the subject and just write. The views come with good content and once you start getting hits from googlers, you in for good and the hits will just keep coming with no effort.

      Well Aj, I probaby could add some words... but I don't like to look back. I have not altered any of my hubs from first writing, I see it as learning and evolving. Alot of my older ones are not picked up, but surprisingly each term there is a week or two when I can tell students are googling the same questions I had. I just now started using summaries and they do seem to help, lol. I guess I am lazy, idk. I don't back link or make clicking links, or promote Hubpages. I am strictly views only. I am getting better though....er, I hope you can see a difference in my newer writings as compared to my old. When I first started writing on line I didn't even know what Word program was, lol. Thank you for taking an interest in my writing, I upload it on a public forum, so it is wide open for any and all comments/criticism. :)

      kaiyan717--nice article! Why not add 125-150 words, add a few more photos and get picked up by a search engine? Add a capsule for joining Hubpages with your link. I'm sure many college students would follow your lead and ideas. (Not that you asked for my advice or anything :o) ) Make sure you check your summary to see if it over the word limit. The first few hubs I posted in December I thought were okay. Hubpages said I was over the limit when they tweaked their editing mode last month. You might get more traffic if you check your summaries. Hope you don't mind my writing.

      I'm counting a bit on the student population as well. I'm trying to straddle the line between academics and real-world application to increase audience size. Good luck
