I am having a hard time starting here.
I have purchased a great course that is a long term strategy by Chris Lee (RankXL is the course), and I am a little worried about the niche I want to pick.
Specifically for me it is the fat loss and diet niche with a focus on what is known as intermittent fasting.
I understand the argument is that you should just GO FOR IT and build pillar posts and an authority site not a small niche site, and this is a HUGE niche, but I am still being a little worried about picking this niche.
There are smaller ones, and I am sure I could make a small niche site and do okay, but I am 100% knowledgeable, dialed in and passionate about this one and that is why I am thinking it is a good one for ME, you know?
RankXL has you picking keywords with LOTS of search volume so picking something very specific is not in the spirit or main idea of the course. My terms get upwards of 400,000+ searches a month which works for building content rich posts around.
I am still wondering if it is too competitive.
What is your take?
