    I want to build a high traffic site. Not a blog with 10 articles and 10 visitors a day.. ;)

    Which niches do you think have a high potential for a high traffic site? Here are my ideas:

    - Funny pictures
    - Software Directory
    - Travel Reviews (?)
    - Porn.. (don't want to make a porn site) ;)

    any other ideas?

    Exactly.. I used to have a funny pics website. I could not make any real money... I could not use adsense because the pics were not mine.. in the end some picture owners sued me so I needed to close this "high traffic" project (yes it was a high traffic site) but I was stupid enough not to use offshore servers.

    All the niches you mentioned have got good amount of searches per month. You could try choosing the niche which you're most interested in and which you think would be the best for you to start with.

    If you only care about the amounts of traffic, go for the funny site and use FB for the traffic

    What's the point? The number of visitors a website has does not correlate into income earned, I prefer to invest my time into maximum ROI projects. I highly doubt a funny pictures could have a EPUV (Earnings Per Unique Visitor) of $0.80 which I currently average with my sites. Which is why I'd never even think of wasting my time with anything like that.

    If someone visits your funny picture website, doesn't mean that he is a clown. You can push anything to them if you use your brain. May be try putting in a Win iPhone or something..
