    I hate to be a cop-out like this, but I was wondering if anyone knows of any generic websites that can make some easy money? I'm not looking to be the next digg or amazon or some shit, but I get about $350 a month from one of my jobs that I just really don't want to work at anymore, but still need that cash.

    I'm starting to think about domain squatting or shock sites :ugh: The most realistic idea I have right now is making a WoW site in some fashion since I know players would eat that shit up.

    I can get the job done by myself if I had a plan... just need that idea :o

    shock site

    to be original (if you dont want to actually create original content), you might want to make a collection of shock sites, all on different pages

    you won't make much domain squatting unless you have cash to spend

    You don't say...

    Anyway, I can give you a shove in the general direction...depending on your involvement with wow, find something involving the new add on that someone hasn't done, or has done poorly, and recreate it and promote it.

    I did very well for 6+ months after the last add on came out promoting leveling guides from clickbank. find something that THE MAJORITY of the game population will be looking for and exploit it.

    An easy way to make a money? The idea has been regurgitated plenty of times. But if you can get your domain out there and offer just a tad bit more content then existing sites, then a pornography review site will land you some cash.

    The main issue with review sites is that they're exactly review sites. People don't usually go to them unless they offer porn. If you can market a selection of TGP galleries to go along with the review I think you'll be golden.

    im in the same boat heh. I can make a website for anything, and very attractive at that (at least I think so) - I'm just lacking the knowledge of online business and lacking in the idea department.

    I'm trying to get into ebaying, but I'm not sure where to even start.

    Not actually a bad idea. I'd test it on a dummy adsense account first. (ie: one you have a friend setup who is not a comp geek. Promise him a few bucks, and you should be fine.) if he gets banned, then don't do it on your own account. If he doesn't after a month or two, might be safe to throw your true account info into it.

    Again, imountain - they offer great CPU resources due to being clustered. Jesse sent you, if you want some type of hookup.
