On my site, I’ve included content about well-known people in myniche (1960s women’s fashion), such as fashion designers andmodels. I’m now worried that the posts (which focus on what theydid during the 1960s) are a bit too much like the information foundon authority sites such as Wikipedia and are not ranking as well (if at all!) onsearch engines because of this.

Would it be better for me to (say) write a review of the celebrity's biography/autobiography or a film about them than to write contentwhich will more likely than not be competing with the content onauthority sites?

One good strategy would be to write specific things about a person. Instead of a general bio, write about what topics people are interested in. Instead of "about person XYZ", write

why did person XYZ get divorced from her husband
did person XYZ go to jail?
what are the best movies from person xyz
...etc

you can find what people are searching for using this technique:

I never thought about writing more specifically about the person before in case I didn't end up with anything! I'll check out the video about the Alphabet Soup Technique and see what other people are interested in. Thanks for the advice!

I don't believe that the is anything terribly wrong with what you are doing. You could do some research and try to find some more obscure facts about those you write about (Jackie Kennedy did blah, blah, blah) and incorporate some of that into your articles.

You could also possible write about some lesser known or at least some that are less written about and you can become the authority.

Good Luck. Have a Blessed Day

I have written some content about less well-known people, but I was just worried about writing about the really famous ones. Thanks so much for the reassurance!
