    Health and Fitness Websites

    How competitive do you think a blog or website about health and fitness would be? I'm guessing it would probably be very competitive.

    Just search it in google. For example, if you have a keyword "health" to target. Search it in google and you will find the number of competitors. Just take a look at this. It says there are 140,000,000 competitors on that keywords.

    Yea, this field is packed to the brim now. Your only hope would be to find a very specific section of fitness.

    you can choose some words as your blog's keywords, and search these keywords in Google, then you can see the number of search result in Google. compare these keywords according to their number of search result. you can get the competitiveness of these keywords.
    you can try it, hope helpful for you.

    If you can come up with a new type of health of fitness you'd have a much more successful blog.

    Hyperbolik, sure but that's a dangerous road to go down.

    One issue I have with people setting up health and well-being websites is out of the fact they simply have no idea what their talking about. When you consider starting a service do it on a subject you know a lot about and can offer something unique or relevant for the end user rather than simply focusing on the potential monetary gains. The last thing you want to do is start a website offering health or fitness advice, give someone some information which could potentially be harmful (either directly or indirectly) and consequently end up serving a jail sentence for endangering the public. It's far too risky to start a website about health and give out incorrect, outdated or pseudo-scientific information which has the potential to do some serious damage (possibly even kill someone as a result).

    To determine competition, I would check google's keyword tool, by putting in some terms related to fitness and health (even those terms themselves), see what suggestions come back. Then search for some of those keywords in google. Check the page rank of all the results that come back on page 1. If you see a number of pr 0 and 1, then competition is low.
