Low Competition, High Payout Steemit Categories for 2017-12-19

If you’re looking for post ideas, it’s good to look for primary post tags that pay well,
but don’t have that many other posts that will compete with your post.

That way, your post ranks higher (and for a longer time).

Of course, you want to make sure your post is a good fit with the category tag before posting.

I’ve split these tags into two sets, each sorted by

  • Total posts in the category (under 500, 500-999)
  • Average SBD/Post as % of the overall median
  • Minimum 125% of median SBD/post (61.65 SBD/post)

< 500 posts
