Well, I'm new to blogging and earning money online, in which I'm interested right now. I tried using blackhat ways to earn money online (using a blog). I downloaded articles and used an article spinner for that. But my published contents are still detected as duplicate content and was blocked for adsense, and I think my blog will be blocked in the future for violating Google TOS. So I need help, from now on, since Google Panda has arrived, I want to do blogging in whitehat ways. I have read some of the posts here. My question to begin is, how do you find niches that are sure to hit in the SERPs without using backlinks? Edit: I'm still not in the proper age(that means I'm below 18) so I can't sign up from any Payment processors (like Paypal) And I'm not from the US also. My plan is making a good blog, good niche and original good content, so that I won't induce the traffic (like paying for traffic provider sites) then I would put ads there (with an ad provider) and let the money stay there until I'm 18 and ready to receive that money. I'm a student, so I'm doing this for my studies. I don't spend so much time on the internet, because I am only borrowing a laptop and internet connection. Is anyone here going to help?
