Which niche would be better for me?

I have 2 dating websites that have different niche themes and I dont know which one I should focus on that has the better potential to do well

- 1 is for mature people to date, similar to SeniorFriendFinder.com
- The other is for people who are serious about finding a committed monogamous relationship, similar to eharmony.

Theyre both great domain names, but I dont know which one I should really dive into and which one is the better niche.

Is there any way to check and compare the 2?
I would love to know their financials so I can see which has better potential lol

    hmm..that's a tough one. But I'd say to put more focus on the one similar to SeniorFriendFinder. My thoughts are that if someone is that old and looking for a g/f or b/f then s/he is pretty desperate. Therefore more sales (if they have to pay for the service) for you.

    this is the good one :
    - 1 is for mature people to date, similar to SeniorFriendFinder.com

    because it very hard to find old boy or girl..
    it very potential..

    but the second website also has potential..
    but the bigger potential is the first one...

    i think mature people have more money to spend on stuff like this, so theres more probability of sales.

    Hmm...You might want to consider methods to test the competition rather than automatically go for the domain that has the greater potential.

    If you can't beat out your competitors then all the potential in the world won't matter...

    Just a thought.

    Mature people have a better chance of successfully finding a partner than inexperienced people. This will result in better conversions on your website, i.e. more money.

    How are you marketing it? If you're article writing yourself I've found the best way is to pick the one you have more experience in or are more passionate about. If you're writing a ton of articles it will get old (no pun intended for 1st niche LOL) quick!

    If you're going another route for marketing then the above advice is great.

    On a side note I would personally pick the 2nd niche since they would be more likely to whip out their credit cards online than "seniors"... but by any means do your research and good luck to ya!

    It seems like a rather tough choice between the 2 niches. But I actually thought that the 2nd niche would be a better one to go into because this market seems to be more proactive in going online and spending some money to look for a partner.

    however, i do agree with Clickguy that you might want to consider testing the competition in each of the niches. Well, low competition, high demand = more sales. And it will be easier to establish yourself in a niche where there aren't so many competitiors.
