Hi guys,
I hope everything is going well with you. Recently, I bought a hosting plan from namecheap and created a wordpress website in the field of fitness.
But now, I don't know what type of content I should write.
Should I research some long tail keywords at first?
I really appreciate you guys any advice.
Thanks

Will this be a general fitness site? That's a broad niche. Do you have expertise or passion in a fitness niche? You can start writing about that.

I don't know what type of content I should write
your content needs to be around keywords that...

1) have search volume
2) are easy to rank

Regarding #1 I can tell you from experience (I've done this 12-13 years ago when I've been newbie at SEO) that if you write articles on random topics, without checking if those topics are typed into google by people you're gonna end up with a huge pile of content that nobody reads. So, fire up your favorite keyword research tool, put some seed keywords in it, and let it find you some (50-100) long tail keywords that get search volume. Even if they only get 10 searches per month, it's still better (because you can rank for them faster than keywords with 2000+ monthly searches that could take you years) because...

The fitness niche is competitive, especially when you're a newbie and don't know how to approach it. This niche requires a lot of content and a decent domain authority to get on google's 1st page (where all of the traffic is), and if you don't know how to build up your domain's authority (the thing called DR that SEOs use to assess a domain's... well... authority :) ) you're gonna have a hard time ranking even for keywords that are deemed "easy" by your favorite keyword tool.

Actually, if I think better, it might be better for you to find even keywords without search volume (which are very long tails, usually, like 10-15 words long... or even question type keywords, these are also easy to rank for with the right approach). And the reason you might want to start with keywords that have no search volume is because most people don't bother with these keywords since... well... they get no traffic (although, this is not always true), and so the competition is lower for these keywords.

Like I said, find 50-100 of such long tail keywords and / or questions that are not addressed very well in google, write 50-100 words around each question (if you go the questions route), or 800-1000 words around the long tails (if there is enough info to write about, otherwise you can keep it to 500-600 words, no problem), publish those and - more importantly, and probably the hardest part - get them indexed in google and start building links to your domain's homepage to increase its authority while those 50-100 articles age and - hopefully - get some traffic after the sandbox period which, given the niche, it's more than likely to happen and can last anywhere from 3-4 months to 1 year or more.

Here's a guide to help you find good keywords to rank for:

Should I research some long tail keywords at first?
definitely! That's the best option for you as a newbie, and in a tough niche like fitness. The good news, however, is that fitness can also branch out in a ton of sub-niches, and if you do your keyword research right you're bound to find some good keywords

I start with answering the long tail question keywords in the niche. Don't overthink. Keep it simple.

As the site is new, first try to gain some authority. Start with low competitive, long-tail keywords and move on

Hi,
Before writing the content for your blog, You should know for whom you’re writing and why you’re writing.
Know your target audience. If you’re writing for people who are trying to lose weight, then prepare good content based on that. While preparing the content you should check whether that content gives a solution or information for the target audience. So try to provide useful content. If your content provides the right information, the audience may visit your blog again.
Long-tail keywords are more specific and they have low search volume. Competition is very less for these kinds of keywords. so, it could be easy to rank. Do some keyword research practices using tools and choose the relevant keyword. All the best!
