Niche Ideas From The DMOZ Directory

This article covers niche ideas you can find from the Dmoz Project. Dmoz or the Open Directory project was founded in 1998 and is the web’s largest human edited directory/reference site of sites. You can access the directory free of charge and the range of niches it covers is immense.

The site contains over One Million categories each of which is a possible niche market which just goes to show that there’s no danger of the world ever running out of niches as some self promoting ‘gurus’ who should know better have tried to suggest!


Like all the core niche ideas resources we use this tool is free to access. The DMOZ site is also organized like a traditional library so that it is easy to find information on a particular niche despite there being so much content.

DMOZ is organized to start with broad categories then narrows down further and further to individual niches and sites.

The categories available on DMOZ include:

  • Arts
  • Business
  • Computers
  • Games
  • Health
  • Home
  • Kids and Teens
  • News
  • Recreation
  • Reference
  • Regional
  • Science
  • Shopping
  • Society
  • Sports
  • World

To look for niche ideas all you need do is go to the DMOZ Directory via this link.

Then choose a main category like Recreation (83,000+ entries) then pick one of the sub categories such as Outdoors (14,000+ entries). You’ll then see specific niche ideas listed.


Here are a few of the niches I discovered in the ‘Outdoor’ category while browsing on DMOZ for just a few minutes:

  • Arrowhead collecting
  • Land sailing
  • Letterboxing
  • Prospecting
  • Urban Exploration
