I'd like to start a list of tips and techniques on how to generate ideas for (hopefully profitable) web site ideas. Perhaps if enough people chip in we could have a pretty good resource at our disposal.
Here are a few to start with:
1 - Modify a known success (first MySpace, then Facebook)
2 - Check Alexa Top 500 sites (alexa.com/topsites)
3 - Make a list of problems - many web sites solve some type of problem
4 - Make a list of things you love to do - hobbies, passions, etc. and focus in those areas.
5 - Check Flippa to spot hot selling web sites to see what's in demand
6 - Record all of your web site ideas somewhere
7- Ask people what kind of web site they would like to exist
8 - Google Trends - check for latest trends
9 - Check for popular Facebook groups
10 - Take note of really active forums to get ideas
Any other ideas out there? :)
