Health and Wellness
Doctors make a heaps of money for a reason. Healthcare is one of the most fundamental aspects of our civilization. Everyone wants to be healthy and wants to do something for their health. Except few idiots, but you can’t do much about them. The main thing however, is that there’s a rising interest in health, fitness and wellbeing in general. People from all around the world are always searching for solutions regarding their physical health issues, mental health issues, for losing weight or leading a healthier lifestyle in general.
As you have already seen in mainstream media and everywhere around you, everyone wants to be fit. Being muscular, energetic and putting in a lot of work and education to make it happen is the new thing. But you can’t be producing uninformative content in these niches. You at least have to put plenty of research into producing valuable content for them or have a medical background. This is very important for building trust and gaining backlinks from similar blogs. If you have knowledge and experience in these topics, than you’re pretty much already rich. Health is a really wide topic, so you’re pretty likely to find something that suits you well.
Tips for health and fitness have a really high pay on Google. Advice within these topics are quite expensive in real life, which is why people come to the internet to get it. Hiring a fitness consultant or trainer to give you a training plan is pretty expensive by the hour. Which only makes this niche better.

Some of them cost up to hundreds of dollars, which can make you plenty of cash if you promote or sell them. Most people put health first so there are plenty of big spenders.
People can’t hold out without romance for too long and they’re always looking to get better at it. They are constantly getting together and going through breakups. They make huge emotional investments and need quite a bit of empowerment in order to keep themselves on the right track to a healthy relationship. Being good to a partner requires quite a bit of attention and breaking up comes with quite a bit of pain that people want relief from. So most of them are always looking to supplement themselves with quality thoughts and that’s when you come into play.
But the relationship topic doesn’t end with romance. You can write about how one can establish a better relationship with their boss, their spouse or a stranger on the street. People are also eager to know what others think and how they can make a good first impression.
All of these will also add up to how quickly a person can get laid. A lot of people want to know more about relationships to be better at dating
Relationships have many aspects from body language to understanding how the human psyche functions. So, as long as there are humans on the planet, there will be relationships and plenty of reasons to talk about them.
IT, Technology, SEO and Social Media
About 38% of searches on the web are tech-related. Everything is influenced by technology and we have more and more gadgets to run around with every year. Which is why people want these things to make useful contribution to their lives and make it much easier. They already have PCs, tablets and phones, which come with plenty of issues that you can provide solutions to. Troubleshooting computer errors attracts a lot of attention and you can make good money if your content is useful.
In the tech niche, you’re best off with at least some level of experience, but it you can do well without it too. This is due to the fact that most people are interested in understanding a product from a user experience standpoint. They always want to read a couple of reviews of the product they’re looking to buy. So writing product reviews and including their affiliate links is also a pretty sweet deal and has made billions for reviewers all over the internet.
You can blog on a specific software such as Android or Windows. Or approach technology from your own unique perspective. You can write about the latest technologies that will hit the market, or about software you find useful to certain individuals. It’s always useful to talk about new tricks and features a software or social media platform offers.
SEO and blogging are also important topics with plenty of people searching for them. Social media has also became a topic for many professionals, because it has created the most awesome marketing tool for them. The market is already full with people writing about search engine optimization, social media marketing and creating a blog quickly and easily. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for more. Just keep in mind that you have to offer some kind of unique value within your content to be successful.
I shouldn’t leave out that if you have any web development knowledge, than it’s smart to share it. But there, just like in the rest of the market, the scene is pretty full.

Insurance, Forex, Cryptography and Finance
Insurance is one of the most expensive, high paying AdSense and affiliate niches. Which is why there is plenty of competition for it, but if you sell even one product, there’s a huge commission coming your way. Some CPC ads in the insurance niche give you $30 for a single click. While some affiliate commissions can make about $200 +, so I don’t have to stress the fact that it’s a lucrative niche.
But since there’s a lot of money involved in insurances, it requires a lot of knowledge and understanding as well. If you have a basic understanding and an interest in insurance, you can start a blog on life insurance or car insurance.
Forex is a similar high paying niche. I don’t know much about it, because I and numbers aren’t friends, but if you like trading and know a lot about it, sharing some tips would definitely get you the money. There are plenty of expensive courses and useful information you can sell.
Cryptography is also booming with more crypto currencies hitting the world. There are at least 10 relevant crypto currencies on the market right now, with Bitcoin and Ethereum being the most popular. If you’re interested in investing into these currencies or do some mining yourself, it would be smart to start a blog on the topic.
Although these are really high paying niches, you don’t have to be an expert in insurance or an investor. Money, just like all the other topics, can be approached from various angles. You can write budget plans for house wives or useful budgeting tips for college students. If there’s a problem you know how to solve, then go out and solve it!
