Although weird niches are great for making micro-niche websites, they're also good in the real world as well.
I've made a significant amount of money from weird niches. I did well with software for making cardboard cutouts.
I was in a couple of micro-niches within the dating niche. Some (well many) people thought my niches were too weird for words. But I have a stack of cash to prove that these niches weren't really that weird! In fact they were gigantically popular and at one stage propelled me to $1000+ a month earnings from AdSense.
More recently I am finding some awesome off-the-wall clothing niches. I've not made any money yet - but that will come once I start monetising my sites. I like the clothing niche because there is an abundance of niches, keywords AND people are looking to spend money.
I am finding all the good clothing micro-niches by setting up a broad focussed clothing site then scanning my Google Search Console for any interesting keywords that pop up in the Search Analytics reports.
Don't rely 100% on online research though - explore other media as well.
Last night I was watching a news story about a guy making good money from death masks. These are commissioned by the friends and family of recently deceased people. They're basically just masks made from casts of dead peoples' heads. Originally made popular by historical figures, now they're much more affordable, and gaining in popularity too.
Come to think of it, finding things celebs spend $$$$$'s on is also a good niche in itself. Inevitably non-celebs will want to follow where celebs lead.
Well I hope that's got some of your brain cells whiring into activity. Now rack your brains to see if you can think of something weird you could blog about.

Been around since 2009 means you've had so much experience in this space. I'm really considering expanding into promoting products in other niches using paid ads but my limitation is that I don't know how to speak a second language.
I agree with you that low gravity shouldn't be a criterion for selecting products to promote as there are some uncompetitive products with very low gravity. I'll like to add some characteristics of products you shouldn't promote:
1. Clickbank products that have (external) ads on their sales page
2. Products with buy buttons that do not go to the Clickbank order page
3. Products that exaggerate their promises, especially financial promises. Promises like these will lead to high refund rates (most MMO products have refund rates over 20% in fact).
4. Unresponsive vendors. Before starting to promote a product, ALWAYS contact the vendor (ask for a review copy, or ask a question about the product, or just introduce yourself). If you get no reply within 48hours do NOT promote the product.
Recently, I came across a course created by Clickbank's current #1 affiliate that claims to teach people how to drive traffic to Clickbank offers using Facebook Ads. I've seen some good reviews and positive testimonies online about the course. Here's one https://abayomioloyede.com/commission-hero-review/
What do you think about the course?
