    I have the ability to generate 250+ articles daily comparing US Universities. 300 to 500 words. All written by current US college kids. Can push this number up to 500 articles per day if required.

    2 possible use cases to make some moolah:
    1. I could build a school comparison website and keep adding my content there. Rank it over time. Make some money off affiliate links, client partnerships with schools, etc.
      1. Time investment will be serious
      2. Investment will be significant to build good UI + edit content + find relevant pictures + build traffic + establish partnerships
      3. Returns could be good, but will take time to start coming in.
    2. I could sell the content right off the bat as a Content Stream per se. I would break it up into 2 quality grades:
      1. Unedited Content: Will have a few grammatical errors, typos and bad punctuation. What you see is what you get. You sign up for the daily stream of content and you get 250+ Unedited articles daily at ~$1.50 per article. No ability to pick and choose.
      2. Edited Content: Only the grammatical errors, typos, punctuation will be cleaned up and relevant Creative Commons picture will be added. Crux of the content written by US college students will remain as is. Examples included in link below to give better idea of what I can do. Will price it at ~$3.00 per article. Once again you are buying the stream. No choice.
        1. Time investment minimal
        2. Investment minimal
        3. Returns possibly lesser than Option 1
        4. Have to find a regular buyer willing to pay $10,000+ per month. This could prove to be challenging.

    My question the BHW forum: What should I do?!??

    I have quickly added a few samples here to give you a better idea of exactly what I have on me:

    Thanks for your help!

    I dream of having that much content flowing on a daily basis lmao! It's an SEO's wet dream!

    Build website + Blog + Social the f&ck out of it + 250 articles a day = Easy link building & one kick ass website

    The student niche is full of opportunities not just with companies but the universities themselves. If the USA system is anything like the UK one they'll pay to get traffic / referrals in the run up to open days and clearing / adjustments. Then add student bank accounts, offers, insurance deals blah blah...

    It's a pretty lucrative sector if you have the content to push out there...

    I'm pretty sure I read that universities are some of the highest PPC account spenders, as high as some large corporations - something to think about.

    By the way, if you choose to go down this route, are any of the articles UK based or about UK universities? I'd be more than happy to talk about a rev share or JV and help you head up the website on this side of the pond.

    IMHO you're about to become rich, don't sell the content, use it yourself!

    Thank you. Not being from an SEO background, that was the kind of confidence vote I needed. Unfortunately, I only have access to US universities. Thanks a ton again.

    The best option is the first one. Build a website with those articles and grow it into an authority site. Do some link outreach and write some killer articles that get noticed. You may even get links from edu sites and major news sites if it grows into a true authority site. You are only limited by your imagination.
