    Hi,


    I am working as a Web Scrapper and getting job from outsourcing websites such as oDesk and eLance. I am thinking to star my website which offers web scrapping as a service.

    My oDesk profile:https://www.odesk.com/o/profiles/users/_~~5c240b684c27e40a/

    Client can directly contact to me from my website for scrapping task. But I have a question in my mind that Will I earn money from my site? and What should be the domain name of my site so I can earn more money?

    If any one of you doing same job then please guide me or suggest me about my idea.


    Thanks.

    Of course you should always have your own website with portfolios and information about the services you can provide. Provide them a link to it whenever you bid or finish a project on odesk, elance, or freelancer. Tell them, they can contact you directly for support or further updates.

    try to find a good client that can let you stick around and maintain/monitor the website. you should able to find a stable source of income

    Yes id highly recommend it, cut out the middle man (odesk) and make more bank. Also you can possible begin to rank in Google.

    You can earn money from any site; just put in enough time and effort and you'll see returns.

    Yes you will earn some coins from your site but it'll take you some time.
    You can try to get a domain or do some advertising.

    How long are you gonna wait? The best time to start is right now. Who knows when google releases another update and your


    sites are fucked.

    Keval: Start a website right away. It takes time to rank in Google. The earlier you start, the earlier you will get returns.

    Get a good SEO'd domain name with the keyword of the main service you're offering. An EMD will in all probability not be available, so try and get something close to it.
