  • Those niches can be very profitable if you achieve some good Google rankings But you can be in the best niche in the world and if you don't have a lot of traffic seeing your product / service / opportunity, you won't make that much money! I hope this answers your question

    Its a good niche to select. its a kind of a product which is always in demand.
    It also hold recurring demand. the only thing you need to concentrate upon is the promotion.

      I'm in that niche and I picked a keyword that google said is typed in 550k times a month I was even on the first page for that keyword for awhile. I think I dropped to the second page now but while I was on the first page I got no visitors. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? My website is Best Electronic Cigarette on the Web »

        Maybe its 550k broad searches per month.
        The niche is definitely profitable but like all profitable niche its a bit tough to rank high if you dont know much about seo

    Hi tish,

    Depends if you actually discover the "buying keywords" for these niches. While the niche in itself may be profitable, the keyword of choice where you go after will have a severe impact on your profitability.

    Yes it is but it also depends only how do you promote it.

    It sure could be because you are tapping into ppl who are addicted to things.

    I have an "e-cigarette" related site on page 1 of google (well, it comes and goes but mostly stays there) which brings in a few dollars (or pounds in my case) through Amazon sales.

    It is profitable overall but not tremendously so - but then it could be more profitable with more promotion.

    It's a numbers game ultimately - any niche can be profitable with definitions on what profitable means differing from person to person dependng on what they want to achive.

    It's what you're happy with I suppose.

    Yours,

    Andy.

    tish_lynn02, that niche would really depend on how you're trying to monetize it. It's not
    a niche I support, however it can be profitable done correctly.

    Tobacco and alcohol is a very broad niche.

    Have you thought of niches within that niche?
    I would brainstorm on that, then search active forums
    with a market asking for what you're offering.

    Good luck, and let me know how it turns out.
