150+ Niche Site Blogging Ideas (Easy To Read Table)

Your blog needs a niche because it will help you build topical authority in Google and sell a product to your entire audience.

But, many bloggers have a hard time choosing a niche. So I’ve compiled a list of 500 topic ideas that I think might work. Some topics in the list are extremely competitive or a YMYL niche that may not be too difficult for new bloggers. So be honest with yourself about your abilities before choosing one of those topics.

Listed alphabetically, sub-niches in the 2nd column, and whether I think it’s YMYL in the 3rd. I hope this helps you to generate ideas!

BloggingYMYL-ish, CompetitiveI have first-hand experience with just how competitive this niche is. It can border on YMYL at times. And it’s not a super high volume topic.
Board GamesChess, party gamesMore options here than I can list. Maybe include card games.
Boating
Body Building
BooksReviews, ASOIAF theories, etc.I’d be scared that I couldn’t outrank Amazon if I were doing book reviews. That said, if I could, I’d be all over this niche.
Bowling
BusinessYMYL, CompetitiveBusiness topics will be competitive. Businesses have the monetary incentive, funds, and authority to go after every click.
Camping
CarsThis niche is news-y, competitive, and YMYL. But I think there’s a way to stick to post topics that steer clear of that if you’re smart about it.
Cats
CelebritiesCompetitive, News, SensitiveI try to avoid news-like blog posts because traffic fades with time. I also try to avoid writing about individual people because of potential defamation problems.
Cheerleading
ChessLow VolumeAs popular as Chess is worldwide (and as much as I love it). I”m not sure how often I Google chess-related topics.
CodingHTML, JavaScript, CSS, Hello World, Python, C#, Swift, etc.I LOVE coding as a topic. StackOverflow is very beatable in the SERP, and many people Google these subjects.
Cooking
Comedy
Concrete
Crafts (wreath making, glass blowing, candle making, soap making, etc.)
Crochet
Crossfit
CryptocurrencyYMYL, Sensitive
Dance
Dating (for men, for women, online, etc.)YMYL, SensitiveI think there are ways to make this work. But, have to be careful with topic selection.

Fencing
Fish
Fishing
Football
Gambling (sports, horses, etc.)YMYL, SensitiveI think I’d be worried about having a gambling blog and getting Google traffic. Even if I were just discussing theory etc.
GardeningEvery type of plant imaginable, indoor gardening, planting trees
Golfingmini golf, for pros, kids, hobby
Graphic Design
Green Livingzero waste, zero carbon
Gymnastics

Hockey
Home Decoratingthemes (beach, holidays), indoor, outdoor
Home Improvement
Horses
HuntingSensitiveSensitive because there might be content promoting firearms, or some people may see it as animal abuse. It could be bad for advertisers and Google if not done tastefully.
Jewelry Making
Jogging
Karate
Kickboxing

Law Extremely YMYLWhen you Google law subjects, you’ll usually only see law firms in the results. Google doesn’t want you getting legal advice from non-lawyers.
Lawn Care
Life Hacks
Living Abroad

Metal Detecting
Motorcycles
Musical Instruments (Guitar, Trombone, Piano)

Personal Finance (saving money, budgeting, investing, etc.)YMYL
Pets
Photography (portraits, astrophotography, iPhone photography, etc.)

Plants house plants, outdoor plants, etc.
Plumbing
Podcasting
Poetry Writing
Poker
PoliticsYMYL, SensitiveAt least in the US, discussing politics is getting crazier year over year. I suspect many politics sites will get blocked someday.
PoopYMYLJust having fun with this one. Except yeah, people probably type all sorts of questions into Google about poop. Some of which could venture into a YMYL space.
Pottery
PregnancyYMYL, SensitiveI mean, what’s more YMYL than this? Be careful you’re not diving into the medical aspects of this niche.
Racing
Real EstateYMYLHouses are a big purchase decision for people.
RelationshipsYMYL, Sensitive
ReligionYMYL, SensitiveMinus politics, I can’t think of a topic that gets people more riled up (or causes them to join a cult). I’d be worried about Google being really careful on this subject and not sending my new site any traffic.
Recipes
Reviews (Product X vs. Product Y, Product unboxings, game reviews)
Rock Climbing
Running
Screenwriting

Volunteering
Water Sports Kayaking, skiing, jet skiing, tubing, windsurfing, etc.
WeatherNews, CompetitiveThere are non-news weather posts you could write. But, they’re likely to be competitive. I’d steer clear of this one.
WeddingsYMYLWeddings can get expensive, personal, and legal. So certain topics within the niche could be YMYL.
Welding
Wildlife
Woodworking
Yoga regular, aerial, for beginners, men, women, athletes, etc.

Note: None of these niches are guaranteed to succeed. Nor are they my endorsement of them. Just a list of ideas to help get you started.
