    Hey Folks,

    You know those sites you see all over the web such as calculators for car loans, mortgages, salary, converters etc.

    Are those kinds of sites good for traffic / revenue?

    I'm thinking it's mostly saturated now but I had some kind of way to find out new regulations from governments, services etc then I could be first to setup the site and get it to 1 in Google. Once it's there and popular then I guess it would be simple passive income as there would be little to no content needed on an ongoing basis.

    What do you fine fellows think?

    Cheers

    You should try. Ranking those kind of site will be hard depending on the niche, you'll be in play against huge competitors such as insurance companies.

    Cool, i'm going to make some notes now and save it as a project for later.

    There are loads of niches. I think really specific easy to use ones would be great.

    When say ranking.. you basically mean having good links and SEO so Google puts it high up? LOL I am a total n00b at the biz side of this game :D

    Wish me luck :)

    You see, a calculator itself could not be the aim. Calculator is great, as an addendum to a well developed web site. I used to try increasing ranking/traffic for a web site by calculator implementation. The site was weak itself and I failed.

    Well, the converter is great. Works fast :eek:
    But I am afraid, it is hard to commercialize its use.

    Content like this is not hard to find / create. SEO will be the problem (yes ranking). So as you say, if you're a noob, you should try and get into niche where there are less competition in order to start understanding how it works.
