    Building in a saturated market?

    Unfortunately the niches I am good at writing on are in the saturated areas. You know, weight loss, tech, video games, etc. Is it worthwhile to even attempt to venture into these areas? Would I get any traffic or adsense earnings? What are your experiences with making a website in a saturated area?

    If it's really your thing, than you should give it a try. I'm sure that if it's written well and you do a lot to get it to the top, it might become a success

    Ofcourse it will has a lot of work, but that's why you should find things that aren't spoken about yet in those niches

    If this is where your passion is, I would stick to those niches but would look much further into those niches. It is only the top of those niches that is saturated. The further you go into niches, the less demand but also less competition you will have.
    My strategy is to get established somewhere down the tail -so to speak- and then work my way up.

    If you really have knowledge in an area then you can afford to be very specific and get some really targeted keyword traffic

    Agreed, if you have the passion and knowledge for a particular niche stick with it. Upgrade your writing skills, keep current and be aware of techniques to make your articles rank well in search engines

    Tech and game niches are popular. Sure they are crowded but that's where the money is. Find some topics that are not well covered. Tech is always changing some you should be able to find a toehold somewhere.

    Good idea. I have one going that I have yet to really start posting for, but I think it will work out quite well. Thanks.
