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

If you’re thinking of starting a niche-less blog, consider reading my post on why your blog needs a niche. A niche will help you consolidate your audience so that you can better generate revenue and build authority with Google.

If you believe you need a niche but simply can’t think of a subject, I’ve compiled a list of 500 topic ideas that I think would work. You may want to avoid some of these topics as a new blogger as they may be extremely competitive, a YMYL niche, or simply too small (can you think of 100+ posts to write about this subject?). Be honest with yourself about your abilities as those niches will require more work and talent to be successful.

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

Bikinghobbyist, BMX
BirdwatchingBackyard birds, ducks, any other bird
BloggingYMYL-ish, CompetitiveI have first-hand experience just how competitive this niche is. It can border on YMYL at times. And it’s not a super high volume topic. There aren’t millions of bloggers out there the way there are millions of people with birds in their backyards.
Board GamesChess, party gamesMore options here than I can list. Maybe include card games.
Boating
Body Building
BooksReviews, ASOIAF theories, etc.If I were doing book reviews I’d be scared that I couldn’t outrank Amazon reviews. That said, if I could, I’d be all over this niche.
Bowling
BusinessYMYL, CompetitiveBusiness topics are going to be tough to rank for and competitive. Largely because businesses test to have websites with content on it to attract clicks, and because business topics tend to have a high monetary value.
Camping
CarsI could see how this niche could become 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. I find that StackOverflow is very beatable in the SERP and a large number of 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.
DietYMYL, Competitive, SensitiveWeight loss, diet advice, and miracle cures is probably the most YMYL and competitive topic on the Internet.
Digital MarketingYMYL, Competitive
DivorceYMYL, Sensitive
Dogs
Drawing
Drinking (homebrewing, beer, wine, liquor, partying, etc.)YMYL, SensitiveAny alcohol or drugs type content is going to be sensitive with advertisers and Google.
Electrician-ing
Embroidery
Fantasy Sports
Farming
Fashion
FirearmsYMYL, SensitiveThis is an extremely sensitive topic and advertisers may be averse to working with you. I’d be weary of entering this niche.
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
Hair Styling
Hiking
HistoryPotentially SensitiveIt could be sensitive depending on which historical topics you’re talking about. That said, I think this is a great topic because there are so many historical events out there without a ton of competition.
Hockey
Home Decoratingthemes (beach, holidays), indoor, outdoor
Home Improvement
Horses
HuntingSensitiveSensitive because there might be content that promotes firearms or that some people may see as animal abuse. Could be bad for advertisers and Google if not done tastefully.
Jewelry Making
Jogging
Karate
Kickboxing
Knitting
Law Extremely YMYLSo many different types of law, but when you Google it you almost exclusively see lawfirms come up. It’s not because Lawyers are the only people to write about these subjects. It’s because Google doesn’t want you getting advice from non-lawyers.
Lawn Care
Life Hacks
Living Abroad
Makeup
Magic
Masonry
Meditation
Mental HealthYMYL, SensitiveI’d be scared away from this niche as Google’s really not going to want to send traffic to a regular guy vs. a licensed professional.
Metal Detecting
Motorcycles
Musical Instruments (Guitar, Trombone, Piano)
Origami
Organizing
Painting
ParentingYMYL, SensitiveThere are all sorts of sensitive topics when it comes to parenting. That said, there are a lot of topics within parenting that aren’t particularly sensitive.
Personal Finance (saving money, budgeting, investing, etc.)YMYL
Pets
Photography (portraits, astrophotography, iPhone photography, etc.)
PhysicsI love this as a niche idea. I Google so many physics related topic and end up on a physics stackexchange that a good blog post could easily beat. I can’t be the only one.
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’d avoid as I suspect a lot of these sites that get people riled up are going to get blacklisted one day.
PoopYMYLJust having fun withe 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 your life than this? Be careful with topic selection here that you’re not diving into the medical aspects of it.
Racing
Real EstateYMYLHouses are a big purchase decision for people.
RelationshipsYMYL, Sensitive
ReligionYMYL, SensitiveI’m an atheist… I wouldn’t write about atheism either. Minus politics I can’t think of a topic that gets people more riled up (or joining actual cults). And so I could see a world where Google blacklists it all one day from all but the most official of sources.
Recipes
Reviews (Product X vs. Product Y, Product unboxings, game reviews)
Rock Climbing
Running
Screenwriting
Scuba Diving
SexYMYL, SensitiveVery YMYL. I’d avoid. That said, people are probably Googling it a lot. Like extremely high traffic.
Singing
Skateboarding
Skydiving
Sleepdreams, getting better sleep, etc.YMYL
Snowboarding
Soccer
Sound DesignRecording, editing, soundproofing, audio equipment, etc.
Sports Cards
Sports Team Blog dedicated to an individual team, NY Giants, Patriots, etc.
Stamp collecting
Statistics
Surfing
SurvivalYMYL-ishWeirdly I don’t think this is all that YMYL… That said, if you give somebody bad advice on how to survive. Just be careful what individual posts you choose to write.
Swimming
Taekwondo
Technology computers, smart watches, VR headsets, etc.
Tennis
TherapyYMYL, Sensitive
Toys For kids of various ages, boys, girls, adults, etc.
Travel
Ultimate Frisbee
Videography YouTubing, filming weddings, film, etc.
Video EditingFinal Cut, Premiere, etc.
Video Games
Virtual RealityI think this niche will become competitive once people realize how insane VR is. I’m trying to get into it now.
Volunteering
Water Sports Kayaking, skiing, jet skiing, tubing, wind surfing, 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.
WeddingsYMYLThis isn’t a super YMYL space, but weddings can get quite expensive, personal, and legal. So certain topics within the niche could brush up against it.
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.
