In searching for another niche to work in, I decided to take a different approach to my usual and look for ones which have shown growth for the last 4 years as my starting point.
So I headed over to Google Insights, pulled up every niche and noted
(a) The % growth over the last 4 years
(b) If the trend was up/down or flat over the last few years (did it by eye)
Ran the report on global trends and used the Jan 2010 numbers for the % movement.
Please note, as we are part way through January, the numbers will have changed a little by the time you look at them on Google Insights.
There are about 600 niches in total.
It has provided useful for me and someone else on the forum may have an interest also.
Since I've been lurking here for a while and learned so much from the generosity of others, feels like its time to give some back.
So attached is an excel spreadsheet of the results.
I hope some of you find it interesting.
