But if you are starting a blog for a business purpose then it is very important to do some research for the selection of a niche for your blog. If you have decided on your business category then choose your business subject as your blog/website niche. For the business purpose you should also consider the following points about your niche:
- Search volume
- CPC (Cost per Click)
- Competition Level
- Target Country and Language
Yes, it is very important to research the above point before choosing a niche for your business blog. A short overview of the above points are given below:
Search Volume: Search Volume tells you how many people are searching for the topic in that area/country. It is a very important point to understand before you start a business blog. For example, if you choose a niche that has a very low search volume or only a few people are interested in that topic then visitors on your blog will be very few. But if you choose a niche for which search volume is very high then it is a chance that your blog will be visited by many people.
Cost per Click (CPC): CPC stands for Cost per Click. Consider this points also while selecting niche for your business blog.
Competition Level: There is some niche for which search volume and CPC both are very high. At the same time, many publishers are also working on the same niche. Therefore it is very important to choose a niche for your business blog which have low or medium competition level. However, you can choose a high competition level niche also but you have to work very hard to come to the top page in the google search.
Target Country and Language is also very important for your business blog. Choose the niche of your business blog according to your target country and language. For example, if you start a blog in Hindi then it will be more popular in North India in comparison to South India or the rest of the world. But if you choose English as your blog language then it would be read worldwide because English is spoken worldwide.
