Thread: The Worst Niches

  1. #11
    I'm curious if anyone here has had experience with a news (aggregator?) type site, and how those do?

    I've been involved in several political based sites, and they're crap except for a couple of months every 2 years Gotta love election time, but the rest of the time it's peanuts at best.

    But I wonder if that translates across all current events/news type topics, or just politics because of the election cycles. I would think most news based topics are poor paying simply because the traffic isn't in "buying mode", so I can't see where advertisers would be paying highly for it, but I've been known to be wrong so figured I'd ask.

    Just BTW, politics has been my worst performing niche without a doubt, even with the election cycle bumps, it's never been better than break-even for my time investments.

    I built a bunch of RSS aggregator sites in 2008. They did well for a short while and then Google kicked almost all of them out of the SERPs and out of AdSense.

    One set of aggregators was for election news. It had one main aggregator and then aggregators for individual candidates on subdomains.

    Politics is a horrible niche for earning money, because so many competitors are doing it for other reasons. It's hard to compete on issues keywords against the very well funded NPO's.

    It happened again! Yesterday I got a total of 3 clicks for a total earning of 1 cent!

    I'm beating you with my proxy Akzo There, I yesterday earned a total of $0,01 for 7 clicks

    Another reason why I want to quit the proxy business, but with another 150 domains to go it would be stupid to stop at this stage..

    I dont think there is much advertisers for it. I'm seeing ads like for ebay and junk on your site. Really untargeted. I would not make such a site for earning.

    Is that site about reneassaince play dramas or movies? If you do any articles on play dramas look in Google Books there is many scanned copies of books from those periods that were published in Europe and the American colonies on dramas and there free in the public domain. Get the information straight from the source. The old books themselves! lol

    Entertainment, Music and Bollywood are the worst niche as far as my experiences are concerned, literally wasted 3 months on them.

    My worst performing subject? I've got one recipes page that has had 36,000 page views in the last 30 days and adsense is reasonably prominent - the page has made just $12

    Guess I'm pleased to hear there are other subjects doing just as badly

  9. Before you know it most niches are gonna be proclaimed "the worst"...

    Something's fishy here... Also.. how come adsense has suddenly become the measure of everything?

    If adsense doesn't work that doesn't mean something else wont, does it?
