    Question The next big thing....

    There seem to be phases with lots of similar sites all being created around the same theme...

    First it was Amazon AWS Sites

    Second MSN Emoticon Sites

    Thirdly Free Image Hosting

    There were of course a few "meso" and "whatsmyip" sites.

    Is anyone willing to speculate about the next big theme?

    This isn't for people to jump on the band waggon, but I think it will be interesting to see everyone's ideas.

    Yep, I'm trying to launch one myself to take advantage of these high CPA payouts.

    Totally, I'll also be trying my hand at one of these.

    I think new trends will be dictated by the CPA networks. If you could direct some real targeted traffic to a landing page or little information site, you could come away with alot of money.

    Whatever it is, I'll be sure to jump on as well, as long as there's minimal startup costs like those types you listed above. It's a heck of a lot easier copying successful methods than coming up with your own. The fun is in improving and outcompeting those that came before you.

    I'm leaning toward aggregation sites like an Amazon AWS Site selling Free Image Hosting for MSN Emoticon Sites...

    Don't forget the original "site everyone built".. the "webmaster resource" site. You all do remember the domain of Matt's site that became SitePoint?
