    Sure. If you can send it traffic.

    But you could set one up for free yourself using wordpress. I could do a couple for you for $100 if you register your domains ;). I'll even host it for you.

    They could make money, but you would have to send a lot of traffic to them by paying for it.

    However if you make your own like that, with unique content, it would most likely do better.

    Reason being is that exact site is probably being sold to multiple people, so you wouldn't do good in search engine rankings, as Google is not a fan of sites that are exactly the same as other sites.

    It may not be that way, but for those types of low prices I could almost guarantee it.

    the sites content is pretty much all feeds so there is no real content. As I said, you could set up something similar, with news feeds and ebay/amazon and such pretty easily if you know what you are doing. You would be better off doing it yourself than paying that much for those.

    Or you could pay me to make you a some lol ;).

    Here is an example of the same idea: http://grandtheftautonews.com - news feed, ebay auctions and amazon widgets. I could spend more time and add more feeds and real content but you get the idea. Same thing as what you see there.

    yep, news is just a feed. Though you could manually add your own news written by yourself which is better for longer term search indexing and such.


    Right direction? Start with wordpress. Super easy to work with after you get to know the basics. TONS of free themes to give you different looks and tons free mods to add features and function.

    As far as the new feed, there are probably quite a few mods to do it. I think the one I used was smartrss or something like that. Most will just give you a module that you enter in the various feed urls you want to use. Some then require you to set up a cron job if you want it to automatically pull in feeds throughout the day. Might sound difficult but its not really and once you do it once you know how to.

    As far as monitization, tons of options. The ebay one works well with lot of types of sites and gives you an easy way to "sell" items targeted to your users. There are a couple paid mods that work directly with wordpress which make it real easy...phpbay like Browning suggested is probably best, then there is bayrss and another free one that I haven't tested yet called wordbay.

    I was actually planning to set up a "case study" to show how to make money with one along with a start to finish guide for setting up a phpbay site but haven't been able to find the time yet. Maybe soon though.
