Are you looking for some niche market to create a site about? Are you learning the basics of SEO (Search Engine Optimization)? Well, then combine the two and help out the world... 

I've spent some time trying to figure out the basics of SEO and what it means. I've seen posts about making your content "search engine friendly" and didn't have a clue what the hell they meant. Google searches turn up a gazillion results and most of it is over marketed crap.

Do me and every other "newbie" out there a favor... Create a simple site that explains the basics of search engine optimization.

Why? Because the world needs it!
How? Hell, use some cheap host and open source content management.
What to include? The basics... like:
- Linikable titles
- Pictures have relevant alternate text
- The content includes the key words (but not too often)
- Content pages actually have relevant page titles and not some database driven item # designation
- etc...

How are you going to make any money?

Use the normal approach and include some AdWord links (or YPN)
Get some of these professional SEO people to buy cheap banner links.

This isn't meant to let you retire on the Riveria... but could complement whatever other income you are making.
