    Hey all,

    I have got couple of ideas to start a website of my own. I really need help from you guys in terms of letting me understand which all things should I really take care of? How should I start doing a research on the idea?

    Thanks as always

    The two most important things for finding a niche to write in:

    >Keyword Research (how much traffic those search terms get.)
    >Competition (how many other sites are competing with you for those keywords and how hard they will be to beat.)

      And once you've got keywords and competition figured out, then you have to decide how to monitize -- adsense, affiliate marketing (and what type).

    One frequent business goal is to increase market share. There are three logical ways to capture a greater market share:
    (1) Secure more business from existing customers
    (2) Enter new markets
    (3) Penetrate existing markets to a greater extent

    Thanks to all and thanks to HP... smile

    I will work out to improve my knowledge on keyword research and competition. Finding a niche, is what I find a little difficult. Any suggestions... ??

    The honest answer is that there is no way to know that. If you understand a valid long-tail strategy, the keyword tools don't work. The keyword tool is also backward looking and won't pick up new trends.
