Making a funny images/videos website is still a good idea?

    Hello guys,

    I've been thinking to get back to make money online, and decided to open a funny website like 9gag or any other meme website.
    I will earn money via Adsense.
    I'm just wondering, does these kind of websites still succeed? I mean, if I get 100 visitors a day as a start, will I be able to make some decent income?

    Note that I will be making my own original images. Most of them will be original at least.

    What do you guys think? I will appreciate any tips as well. Also you can suggest me some wordpress plugins/whatever tips which could help me get my website to look professional.

    Thanks so much!

    -Fadi

    what is a decent income for you? $5 a day? $10? $100? $1000?

    with 100 uv a day wont make you much, not even $5 a day

    you will need to get very involve in social sites, fb, twitter, reddit, etc...

    Depends from where will you get the traffic from.
    Anyway as far as I know AdSense doesnt allow anymore websites like 9gag only with videos or photos.
    If you website is not based with content and text they will not accept you at all, or if you already have an Adsense account you will risk alot the banhammer.

    Yes sites with funny images will work anyway to get traffic and many of the sites can easily get 1k visitors a day but it depends on you how funny the images that you're going to post.

    How will you reach your audience? How "original" will your pics be? Do you really think that internet needs one more "funny pictures" site? What will you provide on your site that others don't have already? By all means, go for it but, I doubt that you'll have luck in that field. Good luck.

    (I know that you can find a lot of scripts for funny pictures sites. For WP plugins, search for image galleries or something)

    I think you can generate good $$$ with those kind of sites. I have seen people sharing a lot of those kind of pics on fb with a link to their main website. I checked with alexa and the traffic flow is decent. So i think you should try those kind of site and promote with facebook and twitter.

    It is possible to get traffic, but many people won't click on them, and you have to work a lot (finding the right images)
