Thinking about making another Adsense website?
no inspiration

I am thinking about making another Adsense website (currently I only have one).

However, I am in a big trouble as I absolutely don't have any idea what kind kind of website should I create.

I am interested in day trading stocks and currencies and that kind of stuff, and I already have website focused on this topic. I don't want to have two websites focused on the same topic.

Can you give me some suggestions as to what topic(s) might be interesting to focus on?

Anything that interests you. Without interest there's no way the site will work.

I am interested in many things, but currently I have no inspiration.

I would like to hear your suggestion and possibly discover a new topic that will gain my interest.

How about one about stock market daytrading and another about commodity daytrading?

Similar subject but diverse markets and techniques. Good to have more than 1 site especially since the trader keywords pay so good.

Gay parades, Dantol. Didn't you have a few posts on those?

My experience is that adding new pages to an existing site brings much faster AdSense revenue than creating a new one. A new site has first to find its place in the SERPs, you have to define a layout, etc. etc. Lots of work and you may have to wait months or longer before money starts to come. Pages on an established site start generating money from day zero.

Also, pages on an established site about a topic that interests the publisher are more likely to be of value to users and search engines than pages on a "made for AdSense" site. In the long run, focusing on what you like and know should be more profitable than competing with a zillion other opportunists who want to milk the AdSense cow while they can.

I could write a few pages on 'How To Start Over After Losing everything while day trading' :(

Will Intel ever come back?

Interesting idea. Maybe I could make one website focusing entirely on Stock/Forex/Commodities news? Hmmm.... That could work.

Gay parades, Dantol. Didn't you have a few posts on those?

Althought I am not a homosexual, I fully support liberalism and liberal (progressive, open-minded) ideas. However, I am not ready for actively promoting gay rights over the internet. In fact, I am not ready to promote any ideology on the internet. I am also vegetarian and believe in animal rights. Should I make another website about animal rights? Quite frankly, no. I don't see much value in forcing people to convert to my ideas. I am interested in promoting something in which people are already interested in (aka: something with business sense).

Pages on an established site start generating money from day zero.

The problem with my current website is that only 1 page has been spidered by Google (MSN spidered 556 pages of my webite, Yahoo over 200 pages). I don't get any visitors from Google and we all know that Google search engine is #1. Another problem is that I am not 100% satisfied with the current layout of my website. It's not perfect, and I want my website to be perfect (I know it sounds awful to hear this, but I am perfectionist, especially when it comes to web design).

Exactly.

Sorry, I don't quite understand your question.

Absolutely.. and there are other reasons for this as well.

Something you like and have knowledge of will be much easier for you to build. If you like it, your interest will stay high and your ability to create content will be enhanced.

I have a dozen half finished projects that I've now abandoned and will never pick back up again simply because "inspiration" hit and it seemed like a good idea at the time. They were things I really had no interest in though and the inspiration faded quickly.

I can't even make a site anymore unless I'm getting paid for it or it's something I like. I wish it was otherwise but it's something I've learned about myself the hard way...

Problem is Dantol - if you don't really have any ideas then you're already up against it.

Taking the time to build a site and write content about something you know about requires a huge amount of discipline (for me at least). I know from experience that trying something your not really interested in can be torture.

Could you not build a microsite focussing on one aspect of your main site in very very minute detail. Chances are that in researching for the site you may even learn something new yourself - and if you provide very detailed info for those that are interested then everyone's a winner...

Dantol, there is nothing wrong with promoting what you belive in over the internet. You are not necessarily trying to convert people to your position but rather trying to get them to think and consider other opinions. The internet is a great place for that. It isn't all about commerce.

I am not 100% against it, as I am already working on a layout for my new site.

Yes, exactly. That is why I am trying to find something that will gain focus of my attention.

That could work. I will think about it, thank you for your suggestions.

Yes, but I would still like to get paid for endless hours that I invest in my website. I mean, it's not all about money, but when you work in an office (like me) for a minimum wage with bunch of idiots, life just doesn't get any harder.

True, there is nothing worse than working with idiots. And I no longer work in an office. I work by the pool with my laptop, thanks to AdSense and other online ventures, so I will be quiet now :o)

Ok - give us a list of the things you're interested in - and perhaps that'll help us come up with an "angle" on one or more of them.

Personally, I have a lot more ideas for great websites than I'll ever get time to do. There are quite a few gaps in the market still out there.

Yep,
There is nothing like good old procrastenation for getting the job done. hehe.

Guilty of the ssame thing. Got a great site planned that will probably be a killer affiliate site, spent 2 weeks trying to come up with a design that I can live with...then I try to start writing it and suddenly I remember that one of my other sites need some content to reinforce and tie in some earlier pages and I am off in that direction.

Definition of
Procrastenation: The fear of starting something new that you know will make your eyeballs feel like they are falling out of your head.

Haven't decided yet if I will put adsense on it. Hmmmmmm

I came up with the idea of this particular site as it is something I am forever researching for myself and since I know quite a bit about it I can see that 90% of the sites are so full of total bull that after a few words I move on. Plus the site designs are awful too. I even have books of reference on it dating way back.

One of those headslapping ideas, LOL, that was right in front of you and you couldn't see it.

Hope you get a headslapper too....:-)

How about a site or addition to your existing site focusing on the many different charting aspects of trading. Maybe a section that covers the many guru's and their respective approaches might be interesting as well. Some of my sites are so niche specific that it's hard to expand them at all. A day trading or stock trading site though has endless possibilities for expansion etc.

Dantol,

Ask yourself:

A. What have I been trying to get information on recently?

B. Do the sites you went to have anything new to offer, or just a rehash of case studies, ect.?

C. Are there ANY that you would consider an "authority" site on the subject?

D. Are there any worth bookmarking?

That should give you a starting point. Anything from designing a better site to changing the baby...what interests YOU that you have googled recently that was NOT web related.

Good luck,

Ann
