Profitable niches low competition! Get the best easily here!

If you are going to set up a website to make money, one of the keys to your success and profit is how to choose the most profitable niches low competition. What does low competition mean? That means that you are using keywords that aren’t ranked on many other websites so that when people search for them, they find you on page 1 of the search engines.

The last thing you want to do is pay money to attract people to your website! When you choose a profitable niche and accompanying keywords that aren’t ranked on other websites, you can attract people to your site without advertising. It’s called “generic” traffic, and this article, and my website, will teach you everything you need to know to successfully set up and maintain a money-making affiliate website!

What is a niche

Your niche is the subject matter of your website. It’s what your website is about. The niche you choose is extremely important. You want the following qualities for your niche:

  • It must be something you have a great interest in.
  • It must be something you know a lot about or something you want to learn all about.
  • It must be something people are searching for information on.
  • It must be something that has associated products or services that you can market and make money from.

I wrote an entire article on choosing your niche, and you can read it here:

How to know if there is low competition

In order to really know the competition of your niche, you have to have a keyword tool. There are methods to search for niche information on Google, but it is not as specific as a tool called the Jaaxy keyword research tool. Jaaxy is a product that was designed by the creators of the Wealthy Affiliate platform, which provides university online training on how to start an affiliate marketing website.

I wrote an article that explains all about finding low competition keywords. You want little competition so your website is found in the searches people make. That brings people to your website, and when people come, you have a higher chance they will buy whatever product or service you are promoting there. You can read this article to get a better understanding of exactly how the Jaaxy keyword tool will build and grow your online business. Read it here:



The title of this article is “What is the Wealthy Affiliate About?” so let’s use the formula you’ll learn in this article and see what Jaaxy has to show us about these keywords:

There is no cost at all (100% free – no credit/debit card required) for the Starter membership.

One more thing

Here is a piece of advice I share in many of my articles, and it’s worth repeating here. I want you to know that whatever niche you choose, you are going to be spending a large amount of your valuable time building your website, so you will be immersed in this niche, or topic, for a lot of your day.

Make no mistake about it, when you first begin affiliate marketing, it is time-consuming to create the necessary content to build your website to begin ranking in Google and the other search engines. The business is yours, so how fast or slow you build, how much time you spend working on it, is completely up to you. I am an extremely ambitious person, and I absolutely love researching and creating content for my sites, so I spend most of my free time creating my content. It’s my passion, and passion drives success!

The point I’m trying to make is I want you to really think about your niche long and hard. You want to create your website with a niche that you love. It will make this journey an exciting and enjoyable one. The last thing you want to do is pick some niche because you think you can make a lot of money with it, and then hate working on it because the niche really doesn’t interest you all that much.

Here’s an article I wrote that I really think you should read.



Let’s take a look at the competition for these keywords “How can I make money online.”  Here is a screen capture of the Jaaxy tool where you can see it has a low QSR (competition) well under the 300 mark, and it has 10,122 average monthly searches (you want to try to get this number over 300).  Wow, this is a good one!

Born in Texas, raised in upstate New York, I have been marketing for my entire adult life.I have decided to share all the information I have gathered on what works in affiliate marketing, and what doesn't because I want to let the world know that working online gives you the freedom to work from anywhere, and that is exactly what I do!

Starting out can be tough, I know, so I will also be sharing lots of free resources to get you going.I am dedicated to providing this information to my readers, and I hope you always feel free to reach out to me.

Thanks for visiting my page!


  1. This is excellent advice for anyone who’s not sure what niche they want to choose. I can speak from experience when I say that when you choose a niche you’re not passionate about, you’re going to burn out quickly and abandon your project altogether. 

    I did this not once, not twice and not even 3 times! I’ve done this so many times that it’s pretty embarrassing! The good news is, I eventually found a niche I am passionate about and the feeling I get when I work on creating content is unlike any feeling I’ve experienced before. I’m always excited about keyword research and creating an in-depth post about something that’s going to benefit others.

    If I had to give someone advice, it’d be to MAKE SURE the niche you’re considering forming your business around is something you more than like… you need to LOVE it because as you stated, you’re going to need to immerse yourself in the subject for a long period of time consistently. 

  2. Hey Babs 🙂

    I couldn’t agree with you more about taking your time to choose a niche. It really should be about something you love and have a passion for.It’s important to get your articles ranked on the first page of Google and writing powerful and intriguing content is what will get you there. 

    With Wealthy Affiliate you are taught how to get on that first page with low hanging keywords that beat out the competition.It’s all about research and publishing helpful information for people in your niche looking to solve their problems.

    Your advice here is right on and it makes perfectly good sense to follow it once you start building your online business.Thanks for some awesome information!

  3. Wow! Some amazing suggestions and tools to help a niche topic for a new website. I really like that you’ve explained how your niche needs to be something that interests you as we will be spending a lot of time within that niche. Interesting resources about boosting a website to the front page of search engines. I will be checking out more of your articles to learn more. How did you come across finding the amazing tools you are suggesting? 

    1. When I originally decided to try to make money online, I came across the Wealthy Affiliate, and since it had a free starter membership, I thought, “why not?”  So I signed up, and I found such value in the training and set up, the support and the community, that I decided to become a premium member.  I’ve never looked back.  It’s amazing!

      – Babs

  4. I have definitely made a mistake when it comes to choosing niches that are not my passion. One thing I realized was that my lack of enthusiasm was showing up in terms of my writing and how I responded to people who commented on my articles. So I could see why you say choose a niche that you love.

    If I can also offer something, it is to not do too many niche websites at once as each one requires some amount of attention.

    1. I agree, Jessie!  I have two websites only and spend a large amount of time building content, posting articles and answering comments.  That seems plenty for me.  LOL!  Great advice!   – Babs

  5. Great suggestions and J.I.T. (Just In Time) I am revising my website and changing direction. Mainly adding a couple of topics that are not restricted from sharing on the WA blog.

    Can not agree more so about that building website will take lots and lots of time. Even wake up in the middle of night with a new concept want to put in place…LOL.

    Is very clear you have put a lot of effort into your website. One of the nicest applications of the side bar. Very attractive display rather than just a title listing.

    Best wishes as you continue WA journey

    1. Oh, thank you so much, Barry. I have put a lot of effort, and I appreciate you noticing and saying so. It has become a passion, helping others succeed, and learning so much from others in the process as well. That’s the thing about the WA community, it’s a give-and-take always for all of us, experienced and new alike. – Babs

  6. Well, there isn’t much left to say on the subject – you pretty much covered all the issues that go in choosing a niche.
    An excellent article, I don’t think you’ve missed anything.
    And I couldn’t agree more with you:
    Unless a person is passionate about his niche, I don’t see how the website will have any chance for success.
    Thanks for sharing this post!

  7. Thanks for the information, I understand perfectly well that a good and profitable niche is key and important in getting traffic to a site, thanks for the enlightment about profitable low competition niche, I will utilize this information in choosing my new niche so I Can rank well and fast on google. Thanks

    1. I am so glad you found useful information to help you in your endeavor, Clement!  Please be sure to check in and let me know how you made out!  – Babs

  8. You are so right Babs, that an aspiring marketer must find a topic they really love elaborating on. Otherwise it is a grind, along with the hours one must put in to understand the marketing aspects of a blog.

    Your article gives a good basic step by step outline of what to expect as a learning curve in writing a blog that will end up being seen on line. Your references to other related topics are apt, since when we’re beginning, we don’t know what we don’t know.

    I see from the previous comments that I am in good company with on line writers who have made some typical mistakes!

  9. wow thanks for the immersive overview of niches and low ranking keywords I was wondering if once you build traffic to your website are you able to take on higher competition keywords or is your goal to only target the low competition keywords also what do you do to research your niche and how much time do you spend on each article you write?

    1. I probably spend quite a few hours on each of my articles.  It depends on the subject.  Some of them take a long time to research.  Some I already know a lot about.  I like to add pictures and title pictures and other things, plus I link to other articles, and all that takes time.  It’s worth it to me to provide a true quality experience for my readers so they can easily get the full picture of what I’m trying to explain.  It’s the teacher in me, lol!

      Yes, you can go after more competitive keywords, but I never do.  I like the low-hanging fruit.  I put so much into my articles, and I want them to be read, so I would rather not fight with everyone else for readers.  That’s my personal take.  I prefer to be under the 50 mark for competition even though WA recommends staying under 100.  – Babs

  10. I see a lot of advice from both sides regarding the “Passion” point.  I agree that a topic you are wildly interested in does make life easier.  Another school of thought is that if you approach your website/blog as a business, which I see you mention often.  Without an interest, though, it can be hard to keep moving forward. 

    Great website, so informative, and I appreciate it!

  11. There are literally millions of niches out there and yes Im sure everyone is passionate about something.  Even if it is a real popular niche then you just need to learn to think outside the box.

    An example of a niche I thought I could do well with was diabetes since I have recently been diagnosed.  Well honestly in life I am working on my health and doing well.  However my website just sits there because I have no passion in writing about it.

    Take your time, do some research and pick your niche.

    This was a great article with great suggestions for tools to use.


    1. You are a testament to picking the right niche.  Motivation and passion go hand-in-hand, right?  I hope you find a niche you love, Dale!  Thanks for stopping by!  – Babs

  12. You really hit the nail on the head here. You’re absolutely right that you need to love what your write about in order to be able to create a lot of good content. I think the hard part can be to dive in and do it even if you’re not quite sure how it’s going to bring in income. So I think the two competing things in people’s minds a lot of times are: 1) Be able to write a lot, but not know what to offer people in order to make money, or 2) Have some great products to sell, but not be very interested in writing about them. The first option is the one that will keep you motivated and working on your website. So I think if Wealthy Affiliate actually helps people to make money in any niche they choose, it’s worth gold!

  13. Hi Bobs; You have given information on a very important topic: Niche. When one start into something that was never heard of in that sense, without any live coach to assist, and maybe, in a state of almost given up. 

    It can be a big challenge to make the right Choice. As well as the focus might be Anxiety. Working your Niche with Jaaxy Keywords research is a great way to get over the anxiety. 

    The two free websites are good for a start. But for success We will agree together, that focus and concistency will bring the reward that proves success.


    1. Absolutely, Dorcas!  I believe the consistency is probably one of the hardest parts for people.  They want instant results because so many crazy scam websites out there promise it.  That’s my first clue something isn’t right when they say you’ll be making $100 a day in a week.  It just doesn’t work that way!  The Wealthy Affiliate platform relieved my anxiety with starting the business because it walks you step-by-step, so it’s just the only place to start  and maintain this business!  – Babs

  14. Very interesting article Babs.  And you are so right about picking the right niche for yourself.  It was something that took me a week to do.  I had a too broad of one, and had to narrow it down, a bit.  Do you have more than 1 niche??

    Speaking of WA, if any of those leaving comments below are curious/interested in WA, they need to def try the free membership.  

    Yes, passion does drive success, I think I’ll add that to my motivation list.

    I’ll be bookmarking your awesome site, and looking forward to more articles,Laura

    1. Hey Laura!  Be sure to subscribe, and you won’t miss an article.  I have two sites.  This one to help people learn this business, and https://FountainofYouthLifesty… which focuses on health and keeping young and fit.  I love them both, and I love helping people!  Passion definitely drives success.  Thanks so much,  Babs

  15. Yes! Choose a niche you have interest in. Man, that is so key. When I first started with affiliate marketing, I just tried to go for high-priced items like cameras. The thing is, I don’t know a THING about cameras and it was so boring researching it. 

    (Of course, someone who loves cameras would do great with the topic.) 

    Guess what? Cameras are high-priced items that would make a decent amount of money But because I didn’t like researching about them, I never created content, and the stuff I DID create wasn’t good. So, I made $0 doing that. 

    Lesson learned!

    1. Yes, that is a frequent mistake marketers make.  They chase the dollars instead of the dream.  Helping people with a need in a niche you love is key to success.  Helping first, money comes after that.  I hope you love your niche(s) now!  Hopefully we can help someone else avoid this common pitfall!  – Babs
