Which of these two ideas would you choose?

Hey all,

I have a couple ideas, which I'd love to make a site about, and I'm trying to decide which to do first.

Here's what I've found when researching my ideas:

Idea #1 - 116,000 current sites with 13 Adsense advertisers with max bids in the range of .05 through .60

Idea #2 - 12,500,000 current sites with 33 Adsense advertisers in the range of .05 through 5.00

Idea #1 seems the easiest since it appears to have very little competition but with only 13 advertisers, maybe it's not a good idea. #2 has a good amount of advertisers and bids but with over 12million sites already out there this seems to no longer qualify as a niche.

With your experience, which would you choose?

I would instead look for a niche with 13 sites and 116k advertisers.

BTW I don't think there are really 12.5 million sites about one topic, probably you are looking at search results.

Humble,

I like them both the same which is why at this point I'm trying to go by the numbers. :)

Hobbs,

Yes, search results was it. I thought that meant actual sites. Oh well, haha.

As for the 13 sites 116k advertisers, I know you're playing around but are you implying that ideally a site should have search results MUCH lower than what I posted with Advertisers MUCH higher? Or were you just having fun? As you can tell, I'm new to this. hah

Yes Soma,
I meant that I wouldn't enter a niche that has only 13 or 33 advertisers, think big then scale down as reality hits you, think quality as HB implied, which only comes with love. And yes, I am having lots of fun ;-)

Wow, really, 33 adverstisers is too litte? haha, man I thought that was a lot. Shows what I know. Is there another tool to use besides the Yahoo Search Marketing Bid tool?

how do you find out how many adsense advertisers there are for a given niche?

Soma, if you like both niches you should make both websites!
You only have to decide wiche one you are going to make first.
I would start with the more easy and common topic. If it is easy to write your content there is more time left to concentrate on ad format, ad placement, ad color, etcetera. You know, all the Adsense stuff...

How can you find out how many advertisers any given 'site' (or subject) has? Just curious. But even if you could, this is surely something that changes from day to day or month to month so it is not a very useful guideline.

Humble, you're right about doing both websites right now I'm just trying to figure out which first. But your post makes sense and after thinking about it all afternoon, taking into considerations the posts in this thread I've decided on which one I'll do. :)

John and Jean,

My initial post was probably innacurate. I don't know for sure how many Adsense advertisers there are for each subject I just know how many advertisers were reported with the Yahoo bid tool. The bid tool link can be found on the right side of this page:

Try Google AdWords Keyword Tool
[adwords.google.com...]

and check the bids for your keywords
