You will discover profitable niches in under 10 minutes, guaranteed. And best of all, at this stage, thinking is not required. Just follow the steps :-).

1. We will rely on Wikipedia, but you don't need to go there right now.

2. We will use a very convenient service, provided by Google, which allows you to automatically extract keywords from almost any web page. Go to Google AdWords:Keyword Tool and click on the "Site Related Keyword".

3. Click "Get keywords" and wait for results.

4. When results appear, sort them by the "Estimated Avg. CPC" column and scroll down, looking for any high-paying keyword.

5. Here's what I found. "Accused priests" - average CPC at almost $10! Sounds interesting. Let's investigate it further.

6. Intuition tells me that it will be probably a very, very narrow niche, but it still may be profitable. Let's go to the trusted Wordtracker - one of the best keyword research tools out there.

A quick search brought me the following results:


Wow! It seems that the subject is hot - almost 350 predicted searches per day!
