Greetings fellow entrepreneurs, I'm so glad this forum exists, because I feel so totally alone in my quest to make a living in the online world. That being said, I have been studying the PL course for about 2 months now and am getting more knowledgeable, but many questions have arisen which I hope someone can help me with. One of my interests is music and guitar playing. I think ideas in the air don't mean much, so I will talk freely. If I'm researching niches under "guitar" I get fairly high search volume, and saturated advertiser competition. That's a good thing from what I know about adsense revenues being higher. If I do a search on Google for "guitar" it comes back with 222,000,000 hits! I would say that was an incredibly popular keyword. Now to add another term to "guitar" in the plnrc in search of a unique niche, I get low to moderate search volume and NO advertiser competition. That means that adsense ads on my blog and/or website aren't gonna be paying enough to make it worthwhile. Am I getting confused on this? I mean high search volume and high competition is great for adsense revenue, but how the heck do I get traffic to MY site with so many guitar-based sites? Let's say I decided to set up a blog around a niche that had some search volume, but little-no ad competition. Not only would I have a hard time writing daily articles based on that tiny niche, but how would the adsense ads be relevant to the topic? I mean if it were the "Hungarian minor mode guitar excellence blog" what relevant adsense ads could there be to possibly generate income? If I decided to go with a blog built around guitar study/lessons/theory, etc., like so many other sites, could I ever get it high enough in the search results to see any adsense revenue? It feels like a catch 22. If I find a niche with search volume, it looks like I would have to exploit it with a potentially expensive Adwords campaign instead of Adsense, 'cause the low competition means low commissions. Yes or no? I've got lots of time on my hands and I'm bursting with enthusiasm, but it's frustrating not to know how to proceed. Can anybody help me get this clear in my head?
