I recently came across an idea. My idea is to build a website that provides info that will help millions of people make their decisions. Problem is, when i google this keyword, I couldn't find any "sponsored ads" on the results page. what a bummer.

Should I go on to build this website because i'm interested in this topic and earn no adsense $. Or move on to other topics?

Build for fun and traffic.
AdSense should come later.
That's what I would do, actually this is exactly what I plan to do on my next site.

I agree. Build your site for fun and because you want to turn it into a worthwhile website.

If you can add Adsense later and generate $$$, that's even better.

You can always monetise it with CPM networks.
If you got lots of visits... adsense isn't the only way to revenue.

I have a web site where the main keyword has 0 advertisers in the google results, yet it still manage to make a few bucks because of the sheer traffic and the good content. Don't overlook secondary topics that may come naturally without your planning. Of course, it does not have a great EPC, but it's still the first site I check in the morning and the last one at night because it's my favorite. I have other, more paying web sites, which feel like a lot more work because I am lukewarm to the topic. But of course, if you're trying to find THE idea that will make you a full-time adsenser, you might want to put it on hold or just work on it in your spare time.

I have a website that has 0 advertisers in the google results too, yet it still does well.

You just don't know until you try it.

If your idea is so good then I would say go for it.

The web is getting bigger and bigger and bigger.

If your idea is really good, advertisers will come and contact you on there own. You also can contact potential advertisers and sell ad space directly without adsense.

Thanks everyone for your comment. I'll have another half a year to think about this while I develop my current site.
