How to Use This Data

Here is more information about the columns in the tables above:

Popularity
This is a percentage scale (0: not popular, 100: very popular). Popularity is a measure of how popular this niche is with other bloggers and YouTubers. For example many people write blogs about weight loss or making money online. Comparatively few people write blogs about horse racing or goal setting. Generally speaking more popular niches have more competition, although this tends to be from other bloggers. It doesn't necessarily show how competitive the search results are for a particular niche because the search results could be dominated by major players. For example in shopping niches there may be less blogs but you'll be up against Amazon, eBay and etsy. Some niches also have few bloggers but competition from business is intense - water coolers being one such example.
Competition
This is on a percentage scale (0: no competition, 100: very competitive). This is a more general measure of how competitive a niche is. However, bear in mind that this data is more heavily biased towards competition in search results for web pages. It can be easier to get traffic on YouTube in more competitive niches, but it will still be a hard slog in competitive niches.
Potential
A niche's overall potential is rated on a percentage scale. Be aware that this scale is the inverse of the previous two, i.e. 0 is the lowest potential and 100 is for niches with the most potential. Niche potential is assessed by five different factors, two of which are popularity and potential. The other three factors are exclusively used to measure YouTube channel metrics.

What Are Good YouTube Niches?

I spent a lot of time blogging in 2009 - 2012. I used to blog in some difficult niches (business software, accountancy) and one much easier niche - relationships/dating. Although my accountancy blog received very high value clicks on CPC (cost per click) adverts, I hardly received any visitors to my blog. It was also pretty difficult writing the articles, especially as I'm not a trained accountant!

By contrast my dating blogs displayed advertising that lead to much lower CPC values per click. However, the sites received at least 10x as much traffic as my accountancy blog, and it was much easier to write the articles. In the end I decided to continue with my dating advice blogs and I let the accountancy website domain expire.

In general good YouTube niches are the same as good blogging niches - you want topics where it is easy to get traffic (viewers) and hence rack up those subscribers and watch hours.
