Niche Laboratory Insights

Niche Laboratory Insights gives you a little bit of information about what other users of the Niche Laboratory are working on (without giving any secrets away).

Relative Niche Difficulty - Top Level Topics

The chart below shows the average (mean) difficulty rating that the Niche Laboratory has assigned to each job run in each of the 12 top level DMOZ categories.

The top level DMOZ Categories are: Arts, Business, Computers, Games, Health, Home, Kids and Teens, News, Recreation, Reference, Regional, Science, Shopping, Society, Sport and World.

All of these categories should be self explanatory although I'll mention that DMOZ has tended to dump any sites that's aren't primarily written in English into the World category. What does this mean for you? It means that if you're fluent in languages other than English, then don't forget there's often good money to be made by setting up non-English niche sites, as there's generally a lot less competition in the search results for non-English queries!

And if you're starting a niche site, I guess it goes without saying that your job is going to be made marginally easier if you pick a less competitive niche. However, just bear in mind that if you have a geniunely novel idea in a competitive niche then you stand to make really big money!

Personally I've tried and failed in the fiercely competitive property niche (despite having a really good idea), but I did rather better in the much less competitive online dating niche.

At the time of writing the Business and Computers niches are the least competitive according to this chart. It's a useful reminder that B2B and work-related niches can be very profitable. In 2002 I started a software business based on an idea I came across in my day job. The idea was related to building tools for automatically documenting application source code. I ended up selling hundreds of copies of my software, and for many years I was pretty much the market leader in this particular niche. I also found it was good selling to businesses because they tend to be better payers, and don't mind paying high prices if there is a good return on their investment. In my case the software I built saved companies many hours of manual labour.

Relative Niche Difficulty - Breakdown by Sub Topics

OK so this is a really long table but have a good look through as it may shed light on some undiscovered niches that are great to blog about.

This table shows the main DMOZ categories and sub-categories, plus some data associated with Niche Laboratory jobs in these categories.

The two data columns show:

  1. Difficulty: This is the average difficulty score calculated by the Niche Laboratory for keyword searches performed for this particular niche. If you're thinking of starting a blog in this niche then a lower difficulty score is better! Look for green theromometers () as these highlight topics that should be full of undiscovered niches. Red thermometers () tell you there's plenty of competition, so just be aware that to be successful in this niche you're going to have to spend a lot of money, or come up with a really nice angle on the topic. On the other hand the more difficult niches offer rich rewards to those who can get traffic in that niche, as advertisers will be queuing up to advertise on your site!
  2. Popularity: This shows how many Niche Laboratory jobs have been submitted in each topic. More hearts () = more popularity. This is a good indicator of how many Internet Marketers are active in each niche. Unsurprisingly you'll find that pets, clothing and health are particularly popular. Don't be put off by the popularity of a niche - it may also mean there's more chance of success.

Incidentially this data is constantly updated, so bookmark this page and check back from time to time.
