    im sitting here pondering what my next site will be
    do you guys think any of these are good: (based on originality)

    a dating site only for people under 30 (no creepy old geezers)
    OR
    a classifieds site where everything has to be under $10

    please don't steal these ideas (ill kill you)
    what do you peeps reckon? what site are you dying for someone to make?

    That first one is begging for discrimination problems.

    I have an excellent mind blowing idea which can make millions for you :) idea is develop a site which can beat Paypal..lol..dont detal my idea it is original...forgot

    I think, develop a site which can beat all the IM forums...

    If you need the original idea then you must think one yourself...

    The two ideas of yours doesnt seem to good...

    yeah, i though of that. im thinking maybe people will just browse the site looking for cheap shit to waste money on. i could even implement a shopping cart feature to make it really easy to waste their money.

    i understand that by having everything under $10 will take away a big chunk of the market, but there are so many buy/sell online sites out there that my chance of getting any of the market is slim, so if the site is different it has more of a chance of people actually using it. i dunno, just an idea?

    thanks for the feedback tho, good or bad, its appreciated

    yeah, def have to be local, like collection onyl. i wouldn't charge anything for the site, just get $ from ads. what are the chances of a CL clone taking off? there are shit loads of them and they all suck.

    Yeah just start an ads site like CL, if it catches on, expand.

    Advertise locally with flyers or something.

    With CL charging for the erotic services section, might be an opportunity to get in on that market.

    thats the angle im going for, 100% free. bumtree charges for posting jobs, my site is free. i am quite happy only earning from ads3nse. if i had half the traffic bumtree gets i would still be rich just from ads

    The blackhat thing to do would be to simply steal ads until you build up some traffic.

    Hey Eskimo -

    I applaud you for not only coming up with a few ideas, but for also having the balls it takes (around here) to ask for advice...

    I think either of these ideas could work... you just need to tweek them a bit. A dating site for those under 30 is o.k., and it already exists in one form or another... but you want to advertise and sell to these potential daters, instead of set them up in another dating program where you are paid... If it is a great site with good & unique content for the viewers, then it has potential.

    I actually thought the classified idea is not bad, but I would look the other way - Like how much do I need for each person to place their add (no matter the item cost maybe???) So, we list any item, any cost, for 30 days for $3 bucks type thing... You could also help people sell their own stuff from your classifieds by setting them up so they can list it (their sales items) on the MySpace, FaceBook or whatever... more traffic (more sellers?).

    Plus maybe you are out on Gbay making sales of their items (promoting your classified site) as well, plus maybe pushing your other (affiliate) programs from there.

    I say tweek it and get started... we all even tweek as we go sometimes, just grab an idea and start it knowing it can change direction with your research and analysis - so you already know it will morph - be ready for it as your eyes open to new ideas you hear.

    I think for some online dating fun - There should be a dating site where you can set-up your friend with a date your friends found for you online ??? Could be fun too!
    Totally, Like "The Set-up .com"
