    I was thinking about ranking business sites and renting them out. What are some highly profitable local businesses that would be good to go after?
    Web design seems too much competition and they somewhat know SEO. Lawyers, dentist? What else?

    look at yodel That;s basically what they do. They go out and build a site then rent it to a local business. If they stop paying then they go and sell it to another company.
