    Ok, I have felt obligated to share, since everyone has been so awesome and helpful to me today. :) I have thought about the idea, enough I've wanted to give it a try. But... I work 7days/wk, am usually exhausted by the time I am done.

    Hope this idea helps someone.
    http://www.freemedicineprogram.org/ - At first look, this seems to be a pretty helpful site, offering to help people to get their meds affordably or free.
    I have kept an eye on this site for a while now, and have been amazed by it's simplicity, and wondered about it's effectiveness.

    This is what I mean - http://www.freemedicineprogram.org/online_application.html - When you click to signup for their program, it has never actually been accepting people. Instead what it does is offer you the page above(obviously) telling you to check out other sites for an assistance plan. Followed by Google Ads. The whole entire site is filled with Google ads. VERY targeted ones.

    I thought that simply cloning the site may not be enough. So I wondered, WHAT other things are there that people are looking for help with, or wanting for free?
    Offer them assistance, and then just give them some Google Ads? Anybody ever tried this ?

    P.S. I am SO sorry to be posting about this, if it's a BHW member's site.

    I hope if this doesn't actually help, it at least gives someone a good idea. :)

    I ran into this kind of site many times in the past. I must say this is simply awesome idea but as you have stated earlier you must have a veerry focused and targeted traffic. And most of all you must bring in a lot of warm bodies to have your adsense ads get click.

    That's not a half bad idea.. and it kind of runs like the "Paid Survey" Clickbank products out there, accept this is with free help websites.

    You offer free help to an expensive current niche let's say.. "Gas Prices?"
    And you have a section for "Lowest Gas Prices Near You" and instead the page is displayed with AdSense or perhaps re-directs them to an affiliate offer.

    A lot of people have no clue what those Google Ads even are so targeting niches outside of the IM world is easily profitable.

    Yeah, it's better to have a greenhorn internet visitors to your site so that he wouldn't know that he is already clicking your adsense ads or any other similar moneymaking programs.

    How did that site get a PR5?

    I have no idea how the site has a PR5!!! However, the way I found it... Was it was linked from a forum that discusses Overseas Pharmacies, where you can buy prescription meds. I don't know how this site was able to get a link there, but it was under
    Like Free Meds, or Prescription Help, or something. I bet it gets LOADS of visits, just from that busy forum alone!!

    coreygeer, thanks for that idea. It is a great one. A site that offers GAS help might work just as well. Have a page to sign up for their program, then offer them some ads, saying you are not accepting new members at this time. Anything like that.

    I posted this to share the idea, and hopefully help others come up with new ones. Happy this is helping the idea process. :)

    Damn, that is absolute genius. Complete with supposed stocking availability and they are grabbing email address for "discounts".

    BozoClown thanks for checking that out too, and sharing what you found. :)

    This really is an awesome site, just full of ideas. I've thought of using a clone, and just editing it a little. You know the 10% rule to keep from being sued? Well, there are plenty of great ideas here waiting to be had and used.

    Pretty good share, but like a bunch of other people stated you would have to have EXTREMELY targetted traffic. AFAIK there is no way to control adsense ads that are displayed? is there some alternative that you can choose medicines to advertise?
