Identify the area you can write amazingly on. Doesn’t matter how small it is, it’s still an information for people seeking it, how to open a campaign bottle is still a information for a person who’s has never tried doing it.
Be a little choosy while rounding off a niche. No idea is small, even if you are intending to write on “How to effectively open a campaign bottle?” just write it, it’s still an information.
If you don’t believe this, search anything on google and check the results count under the search box, you’ll be amazed to see how many people on this planet think exactly like you. There many people seeking information always, no exceptions. Analyze what other people are serving, find what they’re missing.
If you’re really a expert of that topic, you surely will find a loop hole as there always is. No one is perfect. Once you decide the content, you’ll have a clear picture of your target audience.
Research on your audience. What are they looking for, how they act to a piece of information, how to implement it and all that’s needed to establish a good ambiance with your readers.
Demographics play a super important role in connecting with readers. It’s as important as your content.
Delivering a good quality content at wrong time means nothing to reader as they already have information with them (doesn’t matter if it’s lower in quality than yours). Demographics gets you that knowledge of right time.
Before you publish your content spend time to work where your future loyal reader spend their time also find the reason why they spend their time there ? what that site serves, how they serve and how differently you can serve to your readers.
Start posting the content. But I’d advice you to create at least 20 drafts (if starting from scratch) and post it in one go. Research well and plot well.
Content is the king.
If you serve what user is looking for, you’re god to them. More users view your piece more you’ll rise in search engine ranking. There are some key points under this, let’s have look at it one by one.
Doesn’t matter if topic is same, if this was a problem then we wouldn’t see more than 1 result in search result page.
Your content within is what’ll make the difference. Once you grow, it’s highly important to be consistent in quality.
Constantly and swiftly publishing quality content is bliss.
Create quality content that is sticky enough for readers, once you scale up your sticky content will do wonders. So it’s better to do this right from day one.
Keywords are baits to search engine. Keywords if rightly used, will draw huge traffic to your site effortlessly.
Keywords are really important for blog post to get recognized.
Keywords play most important role in bringing your content to readers. As search engine does not remember the information by content, it remembers by keywords. With these reason in mind it is highly important to blend your keywords in right manner.
With right manner I mean not spamming/ stuffing your article with keywords, search engine bots would directly declare your content as spam in case keywords are over used.

Nothing’s best other than Adsense for a high traffic website. If I were to explain adsense in simple words it’d be “More traffic your site/ blog has costlier it is for an advertiser to use your blog as ad space under Google Adsense” so having a good traffic website monetized by adsense is the best decision.
This however is a step that’s applicable no where in near future if your staring from scratch. Affiliate may or may not work at high traffic website, but adsense is 100% full proof option once you have commendable traffic.
