For Example – If I make a list of my 10 favorite things that I would love to do OR I have knowledge about are –
- Video Games
- Basket Ball
- Digital Education
- Computer language
I will suggest you to not include such things like making money online, how to create a website, blogging etc. in your list. Mostly newbies start teaching “How to make money online” even if they didn’t earn a single dime ever. If you are a newbie then please choose a niche in which you were very much interested before you met the word “Blogging” because once you start to blog, you’ll fall in love with it.
Let’s Suppose I love Video Games and will love to teach it to others and share my expertise about it. Your mind should be able to generate new Ideas for your Blog. Now, Video games is the main category but if you want better and fast results then I will recommend you to make your blog more specific in your niche, choose a sub category instead.
For example – I choose “First Person Shooting games” as my niche instead of just “Video Games”.
Now we have our Niche and it’s time to choose the right keyword for our domain. Using right keyword in your domain name lets you boost your search engine rankings very fast and makes it very specific in search results.
You can use “Google Keyword tool” to search for the right keywords for your niche.
