Today I have a simple, yet useful tip for all of you internet writers. This tip will be very useful for everyone, especially for Triond (or similar website) writers.

After more than year of writing at various websites I noticed that it’s very important to find your own niche.
Various categories are of different level of popularity in various pay-to write websites. For instance if you’re writing for Triond, you know that health articles are both popular and high payed. The same thing can be said about celebrity articles. It’s always a good thing to choose a popular category.

Another important thing when choosing a category is the competition. Almost every article website has a top 10 articles tab, where you can find the best articles of all the categories. I’ve noticed, that if your article is among any of the top 10 lists your viewership increases dramatically. So it’s always a good idea to choose a category, where the competition is not so stiff. That way you will get listed among the top 10 articles easier, and consequently you will get more views.

It is needles to say, that sometimes you just have to stick to the current internet fashions. For instance, now is the new year time, which usually means that articles about new year are very popular, thus it’s a nice idea to write something about 2011. Of course that doesn’t mean that you have to start writing only about new year, but a couple of nice articles will do just fine.

You can find what’s popular in many different ways. First of all, read the internet news and follow the most popular websites. Also you might want to use some kind of a key-word tool (like Google key-word tool) – a program, which let’s you find out the monthly number of searches for a specific key-word.

Finally, it’s important to stick to one category, because by sticking to it you’ll become a better writer, you will find your niche and naturally the internet traffic will come to your website, blog or Triond.

You can find Google key-word search here.
