Ok, so I set-up a domain name on Go Daddy.com.

Now I need to implement my idea and take it from there.

What do I need to do? My site will be pretty much ad revenue only, so do I need to register a business name?

If so, how do I go about doing that?

Should I also patent the idea, or write the idea out in detail and mail it to myself for legal protection?

Definitely a lot of info there, but not organized in any way, shape or form that helps.

Income would strictly be Google Ad type stuff. I won't actually be selling anything on the site.

I don't think google will pay you anything until the site is been up for 6 months, this was part of a new rule to stop the proliferation of these types of sites.

I've had adsense running on a site for one week and I'm generating revenue.

I told Kelly about this site years ago to help make money with your site.

I have about 50 domains that I have bought, tossed up some bs content, added adsense and they make money from day one.
You certainly have more experience with this than I, therefore I will defer to your experience. As I understand these were new rules implemented late 2008 for new subscribers.

You didn't have to create a business entity to take in the revenue from this site Kelly?
no. adsense will just send you a 1099. not sure how you expect to make money from a simple domain name without content, but if you somehow manage to do that, you can register it to your name.

Seems like you're kind of going in blind. I used to be there, and it took me about 4 years to finally figuring out how to monetize a website.

My advice would be to spend your next 100 days reading every single post on http://forums.digitalpoint.com/ and then form your game plan.

It will have content. The information will be pretty much user driven, I'm just providing the organization. Think Frappr or a similar website. Everything is free, but tools are provided for users to use and then all the information is organized so it can be searched.

I assume that those types of sites make their money off of the advertising, which I guess is what I'm shooting for. I'm not expecting to make it rich with the idea, but I think it would definitely become popular and generate traffic.

I'll check out those sites. Thanks Kelly!

You don't need a Site to make money on the Web i use Youtube and adsense to make it..

Youtube lets you post video's and you can add adsense to your video's..

I went from making $100.00 a month on a web site to $?00.00 using Youtube.
