    I'm thinking about building a site which will help me to make some small money daily,10-20 would be enough for me.
    I will deal with the problem like building the site itself,domain and etc,but the problem is I know absolutely nothing about how to earn money from the sites.
    I know adsense but how much effort and traffic will be enough to generate that money?
    What kind of site should I build,what isn't too much saturated?That first question bothers me more,is it worse building a site today if it is not going to be the next amazon?
    Would be thankful if you'd posted your knowledge and experience about this

    Right now i must admit that it's really, really hard to build something brand new and make it big !

    But you know what ? Don't restrain yourself, go for it but take it as a long term project.
    So in a way, create the site and develop it here and there while you work on something that brings cash right now (or almost)
    Also, it depends on the niche you are working on.
    If you can, tell us a little bit more about it without revealing everything of course.

    Cheers

    He already did that "I will deal with the problem like building the site itself,domain and etc"

    Hey OP,

    Try first with youtube videos and monetize them. And then if you have traffic to your videos you can try to make your own membership website.

    Learn how to do keyword research. If you can learn how to find profitable keywords through analysing traffic stats, CPCs and analysing the competition you can know if a niche is oversaturated.

    Check out this amazing thread bluematter did.

    Make a site about something you are knowledgeable about and run adsence on it. Depending on the keyword of course, but 2000 uniques a month can make you $100 for that month.

    No matter what you know, someone wants to know it too.

    yea go with a niche that you have decent knowledge in already so that your time isn't spent on doing research for content.
    You def don't need to make a site like amazon to make money.
    if you have no knowledge of affiliate sales then maybe start off with just adsense
