    I've got an extra $15000 on my bank account. Unfortunately my yearly interest is actually lower than the yearly inflation. Meaning, I'm actually losing money by not doing anything with them. Therefore I'm wondering how you guys are investing your money. I'm looking for at least a 6% yearly return.

    I don't have interest enough to learn about stocks and funds so that's a big no.

    I've tried some PPC before but ended up paying more than I made so I'm not keen about continuing with it. Instead I'm thinking about possibilites with my blog. Unfortunately I can't really come up with any ideas on how to invest the money in my blog and get something back. I have few visitors, no product and I'm not keen about promoting others products in the long run. Link building is obvious but I've done my fair share and decided to leave it behind me due to several bad experiences (filter, penalties, etc). I want this blog to last.

    Any suggestions?

    I'd buy profitable/established websites and try to grow them further.

    If you tried PPC, you actually made it much further than most beginners. Having an ad that breaks even or even loses some money is actually only 1 stage before you made a ton of money. It only means that you haven't tried hard enough to split test more ads/offers and optimize your campaigns.
    If your PPC campaigns don't get any leads that's one thing. But if you truly were close to breaking even, you should have put in more effort and I am 100% sure, that you would have succeeded. PPC is actually much easier than SEO. It makes perfect sense, it's logical, you can test things fast, and everything can be tracked and measured and scaled up. If I were you, I would use some money to tap into FB PPC;)

    Not sure what state OP is in but you can take this idea and go a step further. You can find a partner and open a gold buying biz in the mall, they pay 50% of the value so buying $1000 in gold in a day will return you $2000. The downside most states have a "hold period" meaning you cannot resell the gold for a week or more. So I am not certain $15k will sustain you, but if you can gathr another $15k you might have enough to open a small kiosk in the mall and make $$$.

    Adwords (Online) or Gold/Silver (Offline). Or a mix of both (buy gold/silver with adwords profits).

    Of course Adwords has a huge learning curve that costs money while buying/selling Gold and Silver is way easier.

    This question is getting asked so often now, and I will always give the same answer. Someone always comes along and thinks that just because they have more money than the last guy that asked the question, he's going to get a better answer. In my opinion, you are way better off learning what is profitable for YOU, and then invest. A lot of people say buy websites that already earn, but even that takes some studying to weed out the scammers and determine which kind of site will even work for you. But anyway, not trying to sound like a dick, but if you have to ask the question of what to do with your money, it's probably better off staying in the bank account.

    A good wine portfolio appreciates 10-16% a year.

    Hatch a website.. Set a plan, (This is what I have seen a friend of mine do) He basically has come to the idea that he wanted to see what would happen if he hatched a website, in a popular niche that is growing heavily due to financial & economic times. He is doing well but here is a mind map for you.

    Set aside 6 months of bills away. So, like.. $5,000 dollars and use that for living expenses.

    Take $7,000, savings..

    $3,000 towards development. Add to QUALITY CONTENT and back linking.

    Invest in some methods. Get a social circle going. I recommend an micro niche, where its still competitive but not as competitive as the main niche. Sub niche is what I am trying to say.

    Ask LOTS of questions. Start a business offline and do outsourcing.

    Hone your skills. Make it something you get paid for.

    One word... Diversify.

    If you want to mess around with websites, put a little aside for that.
    Maybe invest in bonds or a mutual fund.
    Gold is always a solid investment.
    Maybe start an eCommerce dropship company.
    Like cars? Buy 'em, fix 'em, sell 'em. (this is what I would do.)

    You may be tempted to throw it all into one idea and hope for a huge return. It could pay off in the end, but you could also be sitting there in the end twiddling your thumbs wondering what went wrong.
