Many reasons exist for why you may want to consider a search engine optimization (SEO) expert to assist you and your website to gain more rankings on Google and the other search engines.
Here’s the totally free way to check your niche. Come up with several niches you’d like to explore. Then do Google searches for all of them. That will show you how many offerings there are for that search (look at the number of search engine links AND the number of pay-per-Click Webpage ads to the right). The fewer, the better. Again, tons of other affiliates selling the product could be a sign of a hot niche, so if you’re not a newbie, go ahead and give it a whirl. Otherwise, steer clear of affiliate products in niches with tons and tons of competition. Save those niches for later.
