Can anyone tell me what business are working well on the web.

I want to start a website. I am really confused what to start.

I already have a website. I make a small amount of money out of it.

If we knew - we wouldnt tell you - we would do it ourselves....!

The best ways to start something that you enjoy - if you have a passion for photography - run with that - trying to just pop ideas of of thin air wont get you a winning idea - concentrating on a hobby and following what you feel is needed will be a far better place to start...

You know it of course - but on the net - give them what they want and they will come - especially if it free...

Yep, the bottom line is passion.

Lack of experience leads to -> mistakes
mistakes lead to -> experience (learn from mistakes)
experience leads to -> success

The glue that helps you persevere is passion, you need to really like what you are doing.

Sex sells!

Sex + Photography!

No, just kidding. I agree 101% with Harley and Hunter. I have seen so many people try to sell something because they think it's the "HOT" thing to sell. Most of them end up wasting their time. Or, possibly they do well at first, and lose interest later (especially with FAD items). Choose something you are passionate about, and build it up over time. Keep working at it, and hopefully it will pay off. Of course, it does help if you happen to be passionate about something that is popular on the web.

I'm not sure if this will help you with any ideas or not, but this is the top 100 list of the most popular searched products on Yahoo Shopping. Maybe you can find something here that you are also passionate about. The two numbers next to the search term is the popularity this week and the popularity last week. This isn't really a very good list, since it's more of a "What's popular NOW" list. But, here it is anyway.

Interesting problem :)
I can't understand why "all" is on second place on the list, who searches for "all"?

I got some ideas from the list, thanks 4crests.

I've done that. I think it's just coz' your cursor was in the wrong damn place.

The speed some people work - you whack your mouse up to the address bar, click, miss, start typing, and the URL you enter goes straight into Google - or whatever edit field had focus at the time.

Well that's my excuse and i'm sticking to it.
