This should not be a hard decision – simply choose a niche that you want to target. If you were going to target the weight loss industry, you would use something like “Easy Weight Loss”. Before starting a blog, if you know the subject you want to write about, go to Google Keyword Tool. Type in the whole title and see what keyswords are the most searched.
This is one of the most popular niches and hardest to get into. The word “weight” has over 45million searches around the globe each month but even a higher amount of searches is carried out on the word “fitness”. Over 55.6 million search for that word globally each month. This should give you some idea how important to use the correct keywords in your blog.
Whatever title you pick, it must be interesting so as to catch the visitors’ attention. There are several ways you can do this but you should try and keep the majority of what you write on your blog, relevant to the URL.
What you need is good quality, unique content and pick about 5-10 top key words and use them with a density of approximately 3-5% throughout your blog. I prefer to stay around the 3-4% because remember you title is also counted because it has your key words in it also.
There are several free blogging platforms but most marketers prefer to use WordPress on Cpanel and purchase their own domain name. A few of the more popular free sites are WordPress.com, Blogger or Blogspot (this is part of Google), Hub pages, Weebly, Scribd and Squidoo. Squidoo, however, does not call anything posted on the site a post; instead it is known as a lens.
Most of these free sites are similar but please when you go to each one, read their terms of service because in that respect they are not the same. If you violate their terms of service, you may be given a warning to fix the breach within 24-48 hours. They will tell you what you have done incorrectly and if you do not fix it at best your blog or post will not appear and at worst, you can be banned from every using that platform again.
