Is Swimming a good affiliate niche?

Before getting to the list of the best affiliate programs for swimming related niches, let us first look at the potential for swimming as a niche, as this can give some idea of the earning potential.

An easy way to get a quick idea is to use Google trends, which show the interest on Google for specific search terms over the past year.

Here is a screen shot of how the trends look for the search term swimming in the US.

The yearly interest in swimming on Google in the US.

In the US it is clear to see that swimming is more popular at certain times of the year. Seasonal niche can still have a lot of potential. Especially if you also remember that seasons are different in different countries, and your website can get visitors from all over the world.

So I did a search for swimming on Google trends again, but this time for Australia.

The Google trend for swimming in Australia.

As you can see, it looks very different. It actually has the most interest at the times when it has the least interest in the US.

So from this we can learn that there is in general a big interest in swimming on Google, and people are searching for it a lot, and if you do not only target one country, you can avoid seasonal fluctuations.

Also, this is just the trend for the term “swimming” itself. There are many sub terms that you can also look into. But the niche as such definitely has potential.

How is the competition in the swimming niche?

So it is now clear that swimming has potential as an affiliate niche. But the competition of course also plays a part for how easy or hard it will be to become successful in this niche.

So let us look a bit at the competition and examples of potential keywords to target to have the best chance.

To to do this I have used my favorite keyword research tool Jaaxy. I first did a search for the general term “swimming gear”

Keyword examples for swimming gear.

Jaaxy now gives me data not just for that term but also a lot of other suggestions. What we now want to look at is the Avg, which is the average monthly searches for this term, and QSR which is the quoted search results (in other words the competition).

The monthly searches should preferably be at least close to 100 and the QSR preferably below 100, if it is a new website. If you have a website that has existed for longer, you can also go for more competitive words, as your website has more authority.

100 as monthly average searches might not sound like a lot, but you will not only rank for this specific term, but potentially also hundreds of others, if you write quality content. And a low competition keyword is easier to rank, but can potentially still bring in thousands of visits.

The image above already shows some great ideas and potential keywords. And if we look more into it, we can come up with hundreds of more potential keywords with a good amount of traffic and low competition.

Let me give you one more example.

Swimwear keyword examples and ideas.

Here I did a search for “affordable swimwear”. Again a lot of great keyword ideas come up, and these are just examples. There are many more. Just use your imagination and a great keyword research tool.

Ideas for further keywords you can look into are professional swimwear, swimming gear for men/women/children/dogs, specific brands, cheap swimming gear, swimwear online, etc.

There are many angles for the swimming niche, so just be creative. As you can see, you should not be worried about it being too competitive a niche. There are plenty of low competition and great keywords you can find in this niche.
