hey everyone I’m Neil Patel and I’m here for a Q&A Thursday’s I’m also here with Adam from viewership and today we’re gonna be going over a question that you guys are constantly asking and we’re gonna help you solve it in today’s video so what’s the question Adam we’ve been getting a ton of questions about finding a niche of your blog so this one is from party k– saw and this is started blogging 2 years ago it’s still not able to find the perfect niche I don’t know what to do Adam your first blog was on relationships and you end up loving it right and you still like relationships but what are you more passionate about these days viewership calm and you know YouTube marketing okay so what most people don’t realize in blogging when it comes to finding a niche it’s not just about finding something that you’re passionate about in the short run it’s also what you’re passionate in the long run sure Adams still passionate about dating but he’s more passionate about marketing right so really think about what you love before you go out there and you create a blog it’s not about hey I’m gonna do this for five years or two years and see what happens make sure we’ll do it for the next 10 20 years and if you’re not make sure you have a team that’s gonna carry it over and help push it forward even when you’re not there but the first step is passion if you’re not passion about something you’re not gonna block consistently like having those like sleepless nights you can’t stop thinking about it yeah of your life type passion dude you created the new site viewership yeah and when we were hanging out last time you’re like dude I want to get to a hundred thousand visitors a month right and you email me questions all the time you ask my team questions why is that you love it it’s all I think about you eat sleep drink it like that’s all you think about when you’re starting your new yes right that’s the passion yeah so now that you got your passion out if well if you don’t know it try like 10 20 things you may not figure out what your passion is but you’ll figure out really fast what you don’t like and when you find out what you don’t like it’ll help you go into a direction of what you like and that’s how you should we focus on passion wise the next thing you need to know is not everything is about passion there’s some topics out there that just don’t monetize wall dating it monetizes some what well but what’s a palma dating you need a lot of traffic to make money a lot of traffic yes and you know I know your passion about it but you could’ve avoided picking a topic that you need a lot of traffic for if you use Google Keyword planner at the beginning Google Google Keyword planner would have told you what keywords in your space are how much volume and how much those clicks are worth when something gets a ton of clicks and the cost per click is really high now you’re in a money industry right so you can’t just be passionate like that’s an necessity no matter what it also has to make money if your passion never makes money you’re out of luck what are you gonna do you’re gonna end up getting a job and doing something that you hate and we like screw this yeah but the first step is picking some of your passion about – it needs to make money 3 it needs to have volume you can use ubersuggest and you can type in keywords it’ll show you all related keywords within your industry the search volume the cost per click and you can use Google Trends to type in a keyword to see if it’s on an upward movement or downward movement because the last thing you want to do is pick a keyword or an industry in which it’s dying in popularity and then less and less people are gonna talk about it so in five years you’re gonna be out of a blog or no one’s gonna be reading it right but that’s a strategy like it sounds like you know the old model of like the about com where it’s about all differently not working no it doesn’t work anymore so it’s not about blogging on ten different things Google had a hunk update called hummingbird awhile ago and with this update it was all about female D and topics they’d rather have a niche website that’s super authoritative and thorough on one topic such as presidents of the United States or pizza right and a specific niche and know everything about that versus a website that covers everything under the Sun like the about Calm ignores the Baucom you were just discussing it when you do a google search you see them everywhere these days nope exactly yeah yeah they had to pivot pretty hard and figure out individual niche sites yes wikipedia is one of the only ones that has done well but wikipedia has super thorough content on everything and that’s a keeper contents not thorough you won’t do well in any niche right do you remember the day that hummingbird hummingbird went through it’s not like the JFK assassination for SEO and I don’t remember the day because it didn’t really affect me Wow alright cuz I’ve only been blogging about marketing so I never had the problem writing on ten different things and I go super in-depth on my content just because I love it Wow okay there you have it
