3. Near Me Services
In the last 2-3 years, “Near me” searches have seen exponential growth. Before I tell you more about this niche, I want to show you SEMrush data for keywords and their volume for these types of searches.
You can see there are nearly 3.4 million ‘near me’ or ‘nearby’ keywords that people are searching in Google. Hence you can understand the potential of this niche.
You will be surprised to know that there are very few websites which target this niche because people think these searches are for local service providers only.
I have worked on this niche and from my experience I can say, it’s easy to make $1000 to $5000 per month from this niche. You can obviously make money with Google AdSense but there are various “near me” services where you can promote affiliate products too.
USA is the most appropriate country to target but people from all over the world search for these keywords. You can easily find some of the best keywords from keyword research tools like Semrush.
Although you do need to write content for this niche but from my experience, you don’t have to work hard for creating content. You can easily find all the information on the ‘About Page’ and ‘FAQ page’ of the website which you are going to include in your post.
You can rank your website faster with SEO. You can use WordPress plugins like Rank Math or Yoast SEO for better on-page SEO and also create some basic backlinks for off-page SEO.
It’s a great niche. People are crazy to learn the exact words of their favourite song so they can enjoy humming it. Creating a website on lyrics could be an excellent idea. You add lyrics of old and new songs to your website.
When you create different pages for different lyrics, you just need to copy the lyrics from one website and paste it to your website.
In order to make your website different from other websites, you can add more information like name of the singer, artist, music director and other important details. You can provide lyrics in different languages, you can add images or a YouTube video or whatever so that your lyrics post looks more useful to the visitors.

Not only do quote websites receive huge traffic but I have also seen hundreds of social media pages and YouTube channels with millions of followers.

Hence you can create a website for this niche and provide contact details of all the companies in your country and all over the world.
There are dozens of websites including indiacustomercare.com that receives traffic in millions.
7. Free Converter Tool
If I just research the keyword “converter” in semrush then you can see the search volume in millions for different keywords. YouTube converter, PDF converter, MP3 converter, PNG converter and hundreds of other keywords.
If I take the example of this website smallpdf.com, you can see its traffic on SimilarWeb is more than 55 million. If I take another example of a similar website FREE PDF Convert, freepdfconvert.com then you can see its traffic is more than 4 million.
If I take an example of a website compresspng.com that just performs one single task – i.e. compressing a PNG file, then you can see 1 million monthly traffic.
There are hundreds of other similar keywords that you can research using Semrush and find a goldmine of keywords which can make you rich.
So what are you going to do in order to make money from this type of niche?
Sometimes back, I tried this niche myself and really got some good results. I hired a developer from Fiverr, paid him 400$ for developing a tool and I created a website from that tool.
Though I didn’t create any content for the site, but I had to work on SEO because the niche was a bit competitive.
After few months, I started making around 800 dollars monthly from the same website and in 6 months I sold the website for $25000.
So if you want to make money from this kind of niche, firstly you need to decide the type of file conversion tool you are going to use on your website, secondly finding best keywords that you will use to rank your website and finally hiring a developer who can create the tool or even develop the whole website.
If there is any good news or bad news, events or festivals OR if someone wants to say sorry or thank you someone, most people simply don’t know how to do it. They can’t write correct greetings to wish someone.
And most of the people who can write these greetings also want to send something special.
So they search on google for best wish messages
Like Messages for Christmas, Diwali, Birthday, Promotion, Love, Wedding, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Independence Days, Sympathy, Congratulations, Birth of a Child, Death of someone and lot more.
You can check birthdaywishes.expert receives 1.89 million monthly visits, luvze.com receives 1.26 million monthly visits. There are other hundreds of websites created on different wish messages that receives millions of visitors.
You can create a website similar to this, add different categories and 50 to 100 messages for each category.
You don’t have to copy from a single website. You can refer to as many websites as you can, and also refer to social pages like FB, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube and add more and more different messages.
If you are creative then you can write your own wish messages which makes your posts look much more original and have better chances of ranking in Google.
In my research, I found that most of these websites are making money with Google AdSense, affiliate marketing and through selling their own stuffs like bouquet, greetings and many other gifts.
This is an excellent affiliate marketing niche especially for Amazon affiliate program. You can target India, USA or any other country through this niche.
People search for prices of different products before they buy anything either online or offline. Sometimes they are looking for websites that can offer best price for a product they have finalized.
So either they search for information during their buying journey for different products or they already have finalised a product and are looking for a website that can offer the cheapest price for the product they want to buy.
You can create a website where you can answer all types of queries about product prices.
There is a great demand for digital products and services on the internet. People work hard to create training material and courses, software and tools, themes and plugins and many other digital products and services.
It takes hard work, investment and experience to create a great product. And they charge a price for creating such products.
There is no doubt that most of the people buy and use these products in a legit way. But most of the people want these products free because they can’t afford it or don’t want to pay.
So they search in google if they can download these products for free.
E.g. if someone creates a digital marketing course or a health related course or a software that can perform certain tasks, instead of buying from the author’s website, they will search in Google to find it for free.
They would use queries like these-
‘Name of the Course’ + Free
‘Name of the Course’ + Free Download
‘Name of the Tool’ + Free Download
‘Name of the Software/Tool’ + Free Download
‘Name of the Software/Tool’ + Nulled
‘Name of the Software/Tool’ + Cracked
So you can create a WordPress website on it, find all the digital products and services whom you can target through your website and create posts around these keywords.
You don’t need to work hard writing these posts as you can get the best details from the author’s website of that digital product.
Now the most important thing – you don’t need to provide this for free on your website. You can join affiliate programs of these products and services and link it from your posts.
Can you believe, so many people are going to buy this from your website even if they are looking for free. It is because they really need this product and when they fail to get it free, they are just willing to buy it.
If you want to increase your conversion rate, you can write something convincing and offer them a discounted price with a coupon if available.
For example, you can check this website codelab.mrpdude.com which is based on a similar niche but only for one particular software i.e. Free WordPress themes
11. Forms, Templates & Samples
Do you know there is a huge search for downloading Forms, Templates and Samples. Before I tell you more about this niche, I want to show you the search volumes of these keywords on SEMrush.
So you can understand the potential of this niche. It’s easy to create content for these keywords. You can find many templates and samples that you can reuse on your website or hire someone from Fiverr to create the same.
You can use Google AdSense as well as affiliate programs on the same website. You will find affiliate programs for many of these keywords.
Moreover, for many of these keywords you can rank your website in Google with just on-page SEO. Because these keywords have very little competition.
But there are many other keywords, where good SEO is required.
12. Essays & Speeches
Essay writing is an important part of school education. Not only in schools, essay writing is very important for many other careers.
Many people search for essays and speeches on the internet.
Like. Essays on Independence day, teachers day, essay on saving water, trees or environment.
In the same way, people search for speeches when they get elected to give a speech on an occasion.
There are many websites on this niche that receives huge traffic. There is not much competition for this niche and it’s also easy to create content for it.
And if you are an essay writer, you can create a page where you can provide customized essay service and charge a good amount of money for writing an essay.
13. Train PNR Status / Flight Status
Millions of people around the world travel by air and train. Most of the people check their pnr status frequently before actual traveling date.
E.g. in India, people usually don’t get a confirmed train ticket and they can’t travel without a confirmed ticket. So they keep on checking their PNR status.
You can see the volume of the PNR status keywords.
Though, actual status is available on the official railway website but you can also create a PNR status website and add the same tracking software in your website.
You can hire a developer from Fiverr to develop a WordPreso plugin and use that plugin on your home page. You need to create a request on Fiverr so that Fiverr sellers who can develop this plugin can reply to your request. You can hire the best developer who can develop it for less than 50 dollars.
There are millions of people around the world who are passionate about poems and shayaris. They regularly read different poems and shayaris and enjoy.
You can create websites on poems and shayaris for famous poets and shayars. You can ask people to contribute poems and shayaris to your website or if this is your hobby, you can show your poems to the world so that people can enjoy reading it.
16. Amazon Review Websites
This is an excellent way to make money through Amazon affiliate program. There are more than 10 million products listed on Amazon and you can provide reviews for many of these products on your website.
People try to find actual reviews of a product before they purchase it from Amazon.
Would you trust me, if I say, there are thousands of Amazon products that have very less competition or almost zero in Google. You can create a review website for different products, provide an amazon affiliate link in your posts and easily rank on Google.
I make 6 figure income from a review website. You too, can make good money from a review website.
There are 155,000+ Pin Codes in India and over 41000+ zip codes in the United States. Similarly you can check for the same in your country.
Millions of people around the world daily search for PIN codes or Zip codes or similar codes. It’s a super easy niche for any given country.
You can create a website on this topic and make some cool money with Google AdSense.
When I was doing my research on where you can get a free list of Pin codes and zip codes, I found out that most websites are charging 30$ to 100$ for the databases specially US zip codes.
But I managed to find it free for you. You can check this on Google or you can request this through comment.
It’s not necessary that you have to target your own country. You can create a website on USA zip code from India and on Indian Pin Codes from USA or any other country.
18. Stock, Commodity & Currency Rates
People who are interested in share market, forex trading and commodity trading regularly search for prices of different stocks, currencies, and commodities.
There are dozens of commodities like gold, silver, copper, crude oil and lot more.
There are total 180 currencies in the world.
And as of June 2020, there are 630,000 tradable companies in the world.
You can see the potential of this niche.
Even if you create a website on a single commodity like gold or silver or a single pair of currency like dollar to INR or dollar to pound then you can generate a decent income.
In my research I have found that there are many websites like goldpriceindia.com, goldsrate.com, livepriceofgold.com, dollarrupee.in, where quality of their content is not that good and also SEO is subpar but still they manage to get good traffic.
19. Event Blogging
Event websites are also a great way to make money with Google AdSense and sometimes with Amazon affiliate program.
Here you create a website with few pages on a single event. Events such as Festivals like Christmas and Diwali, Tomatina, important days like new year, valentine’s day, black friday, independence days or sports like Cricket & Football, Award ceremonies, movie releases or even any latest trend.
You won’t believe it but you can get traffic in millions during an event week. Like if you create a website on valentine’s day, you will receive a huge traffic from 7th Feb through 15th Feb.
You will not get much traffic for the rest of the year but who cares if you can make thousands of dollars in just 7 days.
And yes, an event website requires much lower maintenance. You can create 10-15 websites on different events and make money as and when events come. You can buy Bluehost unlimited websites plan for the same.
You can make money with Google AdSense but you can also promote Amazon products for most of the events because during some of the events people are excited to buy new products.
