Finding a site idea that has no competition but still can earn money is not easy, but not impossible either. You need to do some research and brainstorming to find a niche that suits your interests, skills, and audience needs 🤔. Here are some steps you can follow to find a good niche for your website:
- Think about your interests and passions.
What do you enjoy doing or learning about in your spare time? What are you good at or knowledgeable about? What problems or challenges do you face or solve in your personal or professional life? Write down a list of possible topics that you are passionate about and can create content for.

- Solve problems for your audience.
Once you have a list of topics, think about who your target audience is and what problems they have related to those topics. How can you help them solve those problems with your website? What value can you provide to them? What kind of content can you create that will attract and engage them?

- Carry out competitor analysis.
Use Google or other tools to see if there are any existing websites in your niche. If there are, analyze their strengths and weaknesses, their content quality and quantity, their monetization methods and income sources, their traffic sources and keywords, their backlinks and domain authority, etc. You can use tools like SEMrush, Ahrefs, etc. to get this information.
- Do keyword research.
Use tools like Google Keyword Planner, Ubersuggest, Long Tail Pro, etc. to find low-competition but high-volume keywords in your niche. These are the words or phrases that people use to search for information or solutions related to your niche. You want to find keywords that have a good balance between search demand and competition level, meaning they have enough people looking for them but not too many websites ranking for them.
- Assess your niche.
Based on your research, evaluate your niche potential and profitability.
❓ Is there enough demand and interest for your topic?
❓ Is there enough room for you to stand out from the competition?
❓ Is there enough potential to monetize your website with ads, affiliate programs, products, services, etc.?
❓ Is there enough content diversity and depth to keep your audience engaged and loyal?
- Find your unique selling point.
Once you have chosen a niche, you need to find a way to differentiate yourself from the rest of the websites in your niche.
❓ What makes you unique and valuable?
❓ What can you offer that others can’t or don’t?
❓ How can you position yourself as an authority and a leader in your niche?
❓ How can you communicate your brand identity and personality to your audience?
- Test your idea.
Before you launch your website, you need to test your idea and validate it with real people. You can do this by creating a landing page or a minimum viable product (MVP) that showcases your value proposition and asks for feedback or sign-ups from your potential audience.
You can use tools like WordPress, Wix, Squarespace, etc. to create a simple website or landing page. You can also use social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. and make a TikTok or YouTube channel to promote your idea and get feedback from people who are interested in your niche.
These are some general steps you can follow to find a good niche for your website. Of course, there is no guarantee that any niche will be successful or profitable, but following these steps will increase your chances of finding one that works for you.
