    Hello BHW,

    I'm starting my own blog and have found a good domainname (EMD). The only thing is is that the Google searches are very low (100 - 1k), but the content will be very good. It'll be about starting your own business (in Dutch). I'm not planning on doing any SEO, just through social media, forums and maybe Reddit. I want to monetize it through AdSense. What do you guys think of this?

    Also, my other idea is to start a website on net worths of famous people. What do you guys think of this? I'm afraid of getting sued by the people I'll list.

    It won't matter the monthly searches of your domain

    Rethink your monetization strategy. Adsense will simply make you a slave content producer for Google.

    I want to start a blog, but I don't really see other monetization methods in my niche. Maybe native ads / popup ads, is that better?

    You can sell direct. Reach out to potential advertisers and sell banners for monthly rates.

    Right now Adsense is literally the worst monetization strategy.

    Thank you for your advice.

    Just one question though: what do you guys think of my website idea? I want to start a website where I'll put the net worth of a lot of famous people. Can I get sued for this?

    Google adsense stopped accepting people in the "making money" niche since that niche is extremely saturated so like @bartosimpsonio said you have to find a new monetization strategy

    Well what's the source for your data? Surely you're getting it from somewhere cuz you don't have your own financial investigation team (do you?).

    So you gotta check with the data source whether you're allowed to re publish it.

    I assume he'll work on the traffic before trying to monetize the site. Adsense would pay pennies anyway.
