    I wouldn't try blogging about all these topics on one blog, if your goal is ranking. You'll never achieve topical relevance as these are difference niches. If you're just posting content to post, then you could go with a Brandable domain name that leaves the niche choice open.

    Thanks for responding, sorry I should have explained myself better. I want to get into blogging as a career move for monetizing. I won't be writing blogs containing more than one niche, This which you wrote [thanks] is what I need I think "then you could go with a Brandable domain name that leaves the niche choice open". Thing is, I am having trouble coming up with a name, can anyone here give me just one example of a name which might covers different niches just so I will have an idea of what to think about to come up with some names please?

    Think of names like Google or Yahoo, it doesn't convey that it's a search engine by the name, it could cover any topic/niche.

    Your experiences are in about all top competitive niches, so think something different because if you will think about music then domain will be related to music, same like health and others niches ....... So i think you should choose domain like ... Whatwant, whatlooking, Getallsolution etc. something like this, so you can add all types of blog there.
    Its just my suggestion ... dont take it seriously ... if looking good then can follow or leave because i am not expert of multi niches blog :D:D

    Thank you, will do. Is there an option to "like" posts here? Not noticing any icons for it in these posts/threads.

    What would be the reason for doing so vs a general branding name?

    General branding is slightly difficult to rank for in google etc searches. Not impossible, only slightly more difficult. A blog/website specific to a niche has slightly better chances of ranking in that niche.

    I'd just make a new website for each of them unless you want to handicap yourself in terms of SEO.

    Crawlers will look at your site and say 'Oh, this is what this site is about'.

    But when your site is about a lot of things, there's a possibility that the AI can get confused or miss the point of what your blog is about (not to mention your readers). For example, talking about mental health and music equipment don't really go hand-in-hand. And in fact will just dilute your message. It's a lot better to silo each niche into their own domain so SEO crawlers can understand what your website's about and give it a better authority on that topic.

    Don't get me wrong: you can have a single website for music-ecommerce-mental disorders and still get ranked highly, but you'd only do it not because your SEO is good or because your keywords are aligned (they won't be, by definition) -- you'd get ranked high by driving viral traffic through social media or ads and you'd have to write such amazing content in every single category that your average engagement time is much longer than your competitors, who are probably almost all 100% focused on a single niche on their keyword. Other words, you'd succeed IN SPITE of terrible SEO and just handicapping yourself severely for no reason.

    But if it's just a hobbyist site and you have no plans to monetize it, then it kind of doesn't matter how you organize it and you should just do the thing that makes you the most happy.

    I think this is great advice, thank you very much! Looking at some of the top bloggers who monetize they are all only one niche.
