    Hello,
    I would like to make a website. My long term goal is to make $50 a month from it, that would be amazing!!!

    But I'm not sure of what type of site to make. I DON'T want to make some shitty click bank or web site to only sell some product site.

    Oh and before we start an argument or something... I really just want to make a site that get's traffic and pays for it's self and maybe pays for my coffee :p

    Thanks :eek:

    How are we supposed to know what type of website you should make? We have no idea what your skill level is and what your preferences are. There are also so many niches, designs, and monetisation method combinations out there that it would be ridiculous to list them all here. You're going to hate me for saying this, but read the forum (I recommend the Blogging section) and test out different website ideas.

    If you still can't think of a website idea, then why not make one centred around World of Tanks. You seem to enjoy playing that game based on your statistics.

    I'm actually going to agree with you on that one, I don't see why dadangle thinks that.

    Dadangle, can you elaborate further?

    Well, it depends on your hobbies and interests. Build something that you are interested in to. If you build something you like, you won't get bored ever.

    An adsense site on something you are very familiar with is just the ticket for you.

    Pick something that interests you. Then go look for very specific things to talk about. For instance you like soda. Then go talk about all of the off brand sodas. Just look at something on your desk for inspiration. I am surprised that when I posted about random things on a blog I am making for myself for other reasons, that people click the amazon affiliate links and adsense. Not even sure why its ranking on G either. One specific post has 1 link and started ranking within the week. That particular post was to help others with a problem in my same situation. Use exact model numbers if its electronics.

    Make a "How To" website. Because it's an evergreen and ever-sought-after topic, traffic (and money) can be no problem if you do all the right things to it...

    I guess you are fluttering here.
    Same post on both forums.
    Warriorforum and blackhatworld.
    Yeah i guess you should ask one question at one place and follow the best answerer.

    Make a simple website, add content, rank it, when you start getting traffic, adsense would be the first thing to try out.

    You need to be assure what type of marketing technique do you have? Build a simple website like blog. Try to drive traffic into your blog as well. Write some useful contents onto it to attract the traffics.

    If you're just starting out then I'd probably recommend either Adsense or Amazon for your monetisation. Forget about having a great looking website as ugly ones tend to convert better (in my experience), forget about collecting email addresses for now as your time is better spent elsewhere to begin with, forget about social, forget about writing a particular length of article but rather cover a topic from start to finish. DO spend time researching your niche as this is often the make or break of any attempt to make money online.

    Those would be my words of wisdom for a newcomer to internet marketing.

    Your standards are way too low. Set yourself a higher goal, like $50 a day. It's totally doable, believe me.
