When creating a website or blog you need to have focus!
It's way too easy to go buy a domain name, throw up some content and lose complete interest in your site in a few weeks… or even days.
What's even better is that you can actually automate the full process of creating a site, doing link building and making it profitable in a short period of time.
But again… you need to know how to find your niche and why you are blogging – and how you are going to make money with it.
Below you will find five awesome niches that you can create a site around right now, then focus your efforts on ranking in the search engines to bring in quality traffic and monetize the heck out of it.
Everyone's favorite April 15th tax day is right around the corner. Millions of people are going to be paying taxes, getting money back, visiting tax filing sites and looking up what they can write off and how they can save money on their taxes.
The key point here is that everyone is going to start their search with Google. There is a massive amount of money to be made during tax season, and if you can rank in the search results and become a source for information, it's an opportunity for you to cash in year after year!
Everyone loves their mom, but people are lazy and most of us wait til the last minute to send flowers and other gifts to our beloved moms. This is bad for your wallet, but good for the online flower and mother's day gifts business. Just like tax season, it's another one of those blog niches that you can cash in on year after year.
Are you paying too much for your mortgage? Do you have a good life insurance plan? What is your credit score? The questions of personal finance go on forever. The first thing you are going to do is head over to Google when you have a financial question… not call up your accountant and insurance company. There is massive money to be made with a blog centered in the financial niche and it breaks down into so many smaller categories that it's an easy arena for you to break into.
HURRICANE / FLOOD RELIEF

Becoming an all in one resource for those in need when these time's hit will allow you to build an excellent resource for them, while also being able to monetize the site by pointing them in the right direction on the process.

Well… you were also born at some point, and millions of new children are born every few days. Mothers are flocking to the internet to find answers to the questions that have and looking for advice from other mothers. Family related topics are certainly some of the top 100 niches on the web.
