    I did a little keyword research last night and found a lot of low competition keywords that deal with odd stuff. Planning on maybe throwing up some micro niche sites, with exact url as keywords. Keywords that deal with drugs and such things. I love reading crime articles and so I think the content would flow quite nice. I don't think that adsense would allow such stuff so I'm wondering how else I can go about monetizing some of these sites. I went to some other "fringe sites" to see how they monetize their stuff and I see a lot of direct banner ads to marijuana grow material, head shops, knives etc. What are some other options because I know I can get some good traffic. Thanks. Also for my protection should I just add a disclaimer and private whois? I'm not going to tell any of the weird stuff I got for my keywords, but its pretty far out there. Very few others seem to even be touching the stuff I got picked out, maybe for good reason? I don't think Ill instruct anyone to do anything but rather give stories. I have some PDF's I collected off torrents and stuff dealing with how to make rare drugs, should I put up these sites or is it not worth getting on some type of government watch-list. And would I be liable if someone blew them self up? Apparently freedom of speech isn't so free these days. I'm not trolling btw, I see big dollar signs down the road if I can properly monetize some of these sites I have in mind since competition is null and the search volume is big. Thanks again.

    Selling drugs.

    Dude, you don't want to go down that way of the road.

    Your domain can be sieged anytime.

    Not all of it has too do with drugs. I got on google keywords and let my imagination run wild "how to drive a tank" "how to cook human flesh" "how to be a hitman" etc. Sick stuff yes, but theres not much competition like I said. Sieged by Whom?

    Seized, blocked or shut down by any number of bureaucracies. Weird doesn't have to mean topics that sound like you're advocating violent rebellion or bodily mutilation. Choose safer weirdness.

    You could use Meatheads1234 content locker pro for stuff like that.

    Nobody else would want to advertise for a site like that... make sure you are
    110% offshore and not connected to things like that.

    Drugs ? You don't want your domain to be seized up or blacklisted. Even you'll find hard your way to find hosting too.

    Once I saw a site, I won't reveal the exact keywords but for example. "Where to hire a hitman" (Once again, this is just an example), It was monetized with CPM and the whole article was trolling + disclaimers of it being ilegal. Wanna try that?
