Ideas for websites. How to chose the topic for your next project


When I am reading threads on webmaster forums I often see threads about which niche is best for AdSense and about which topic should I create a website.

What I have learned in my 12 years of web development and community building is that only those projects of mine succeeded for which I am passionate about.

Granted I never really tried to create a website about a topic that I don’t know much about solely because it was a high paying niche.

But I have several websites about topics I know a lot about but I am not that passionate about. These websites don’t really grow.

But the once that I really like these are the once I am finding myself working on constantly or at least with much more consistency then those I don’t like that much.

Your opinion about a brand new site on health topics, worth it?

(written by JamesColin)

Hi, I’m thinking of doing a site similar to best reviewer (cf. my signature) but dedicated to health topics, in english, can you share with me if the CPC is good with adsense?

I’ve chosen this topic of health because it is good for what I’m looking for, mass traffic, since everyone on the internet is a living being and as such is subject to health issues.

I have no real interest in that topic other than make money from such a site, could be a problem?
