    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for your replies everyone. :)

    Hope this helps people selling content on DP -
    I was going through all articles sold last year (2013) at the content marketplace in 'Buy, Sell or Trade' section. (https://forums.digitalpoint.com/forums/content.76/)
    What I conclude is that content in the following genres was sold the most:

    • Health (Weight Loss/Gain, Fitness, Exercise, Diet Planning, Food and Nutrition etc)
    • Beauty (Skin Care, Hair Care, Cosmetics etc)
    • Finance (Credit Cards, Debt Management, Loans, Insurance etc)
    • Business and Money-Making (Start your own business, Working at home etc)
    • Internet and Online Business (Web Hosting, Servers, Running an online business etc)
    • Online Marketing (SEO, Blogging etc)
    • Mobiles and Mobile Apps (Smartphones, Android, Blackberry, iPhones and iPads etc)
    • Home Improvement (Home Decor, Interior Design/Decoration etc)

    Mostly relates with new trends and unique quality. In these days hosting articles are on top. Try them.

    I've also had a lot of success with IM/SEO/tech topics, however if you can write GOOD articles on Health topics, you're set - there's little competition and lots of buyers. Sadly, they're all gone from DP because of the low (or should I say, abysmal) quality of such articles...

    That's true wanderinglex47. As I have observed, the articles that were sold the most on DP in 2013 were from the Health genre.
    Thanks for your input.:)

    IMO cosmetics and loans articles sells very well, but there is big competition, everybody write about it

    Articles related to bodybuilding and losing weight always sell well, and there is a never ending demand for them. There is also a large demand for internet marketing articles. There is a lot of established writers and competition, so you need to be really good to write in these niches.

    Thanks for your inputs Robinox, MorbidTaz17 and Sarah Davis.:) Competition is undoubtedly very fierce for popular and in-demand niches as IM, Business, Health etc.

    Depends. But I've always found health and dating to be fast sellers.

    Is there a way to find bestselling and most popular topics using Google Keyword Planner Tool and/or Google Trends? If there are any specific tools you can use for this, can someone suggest a few?

    'Pet' is a very popular niche, no doubt. But I am not sure if it is the MOST popular or bestselling one. I have not seen a lot of pet related content being bought or sold here at DP and other marketplaces, especially when it is compared with top-selling niches such as IM, health, finance, business, mobiles etc.
    Thanks for your input though.:)

    Do you know how big is the dog niche alone? I've been in the content business for over 5 years now and have written literrally thousands of articles in a wide variety of niches and after the obvious niches such as finance and IM, pets have been a recurring topic for me.

    That's great. If the 'pet' niche is so popular and in demand, I would like to write for it. At least I will try. Unfortunately, till now I haven't come across any clients who have a big need for pet related content. But surely I am going to hunt for a few.
    Thanks again.:)

    I think it's a good niche if you love animals, especially if you offer something unique. When I was looking for dog-related content on DP, it seemed like quite a few writers were rewriting PLR articles. I'm not positive about that, but the titles looked so similar. @ContentMaestro - I think I'm going to start writing too. I did get that transcriptionist job, and was working on it all day. I probably sound crazy, but it was just kind of boring. Bad audio too! While I was pulling my hair out, I thought of a plan. I think I'm just going to start selling articles here. One way I could be unique is to try to focus on things I know about and take pictures for the article. I could give them rights to the images that go with it. That might sell!?
