There is billions of websites across the web and many have been around for years. Everyone out there is trying to Make Money Online so if you would like a chance then you must come up with something that has not been done over and over. This may sound easy, but to tell you the truth with the amount of websites and online businesses out there you will find coming up with something completely original will be nearly impossible. What you will need to do if you want success is come up with something that is “Original Enough”. You may think that this is not necessary you can come up with an idea completely original. It is possible, but to test go to Google and begin putting titles for your ideas. With over one trillion URL’s indexed coming up with something that has never been done is quite unlikely.
What I recommend doing is finding a niche (topic) that you enjoy and begin doing research online. This is where you will need to look and find if there is any small spot that you could fill with a website. Perhaps you know something on a topic that the majority does not and it is needed within the niche. When creating the site you will probably use some ideas that others have already had and this is fine as long as the majority of your website is original. If your audience can find your content elsewhere then you will have a difficult time making your online business successful. Original content is the cornerstone of Free Web Traffic and should be created as often as possible. The more pages filled with quality content you create the more presence you will have in Google and within your niche. If your audience wants to know about internet marketing then having a fresh new article on internet marketing never seen before every day would probably be enough to keep them coming back for more.
The final thought i would like to leave you with is sometimes you will need to mesh already used ideas to come up with your big original idea. If you look at some of the major websites such as twitter and facebook whose owners have made millions there websites are not completely original. They have been seen before. All these guys did was tweak some social networking ideas adding and meshing the end result was a hybrid which surpassed its competition. Repeating what these guys did is nearly impossible to the same extent, but should be looked at when needing that original idea. Take something that is old and worn out then remake it adding and meshing till you find your site become something that has not been seen before.
