What topics should be prevented?
So, we've talked about what you can and should film on your YouTube channel. Now a word or two about the topics you should avoid.
- Overheated. On YouTube, there are areas on which many people have already expressed their opinions—for example, cooking. If you make your first video on how to make borscht, it will be at the back of the universe because there are already their stars and their leaders on this topic. If you do decide to go in that direction, you'll need to do something special.
- Non-monetizable content. If you're planning to make money from your channel, monetising it is something you should think about long before putting the camera on. Simply ask yourself: what kind of product will viewers want to buy from me, which can help you earn from different affiliate programs? There are several ways to generate income from your channel: YouTube advertising and selling a course. Some niches are easy to monetise - gadget reviews - and others that are very difficult—for example, a channel about poetry.
- Too wide or too narrow. This parameter plays a very crucial role in finding your audience. "All in a row recipes" seems to be a vast topic. However, if you make a "Quick Recipes for the Bachelor" video, you will advance much faster. Simultaneously, the subject should not be too specific, as you will be exhausted too quickly, and the audience will be significantly reduced.
What are the most popular topics on YouTube?
It is now clear that the most popular topics on YouTube today are not the best choice for a beginner. Such topics are overheated, and too much has been filmed about them.
No, this is not a blacklist of ideas; however, here, you should find a special sub-topic to come out on top or something creative and very engaging to gain subscribers.
74.Unboxing and reviews
Niches with the growing popularity
So which is the best and most profitable channel to create on YouTube? The answer is growing in popularity. These topics are interesting, but not many people have made videos on them.
81.About language and linguistics
83.A channel for school subjects, be it maths, physics, chemistry, which explains the most difficult questions on the subject and helps to prepare for the exams.
84.An educational channel for adults, for example, in English.
85.For younger schoolchildren, where school subjects are explained easily and playfully.
86.Parent education, where you could talk about the school curriculum's nuances, how to help your child master subjects, family education, and other issues that link parent and school.
Psychology and career guidance
Queries such as "psychologist", "depression", and "psychosomatic" are also on the rise, suggesting a promising niche. However, remember that Google has already imposed a strict policy on sites with medical information. That means YouTube is next in line. If you are a certified specialist in the field or work only with such specialists, make such a channel to avoid getting banned.
87.Family Psychology, covering issues of family relationships.
88.Child and adolescent psychology, where parents could find answers about relationships with their children.
89.Vocational guidance - where you can tell how to find your vocation, how to choose your dream job, how to fulfil yourself.
90.About professions- where you can talk about people with unusual occupations.
Other growing niches

95.Teaching photography and videography
100.About your profession
How do you evaluate an idea for popularity?
If you care about whether or not you are watched, be sure to assess your niche's popularity before you start filming. You can use Google Trends to examine several topics.
Google Trends is a tool that will not show you the absolute number of impressions, but the trend: permanent, seasonal, gaining popularity or "dead" topics so that you expect right numbers.
