I need to choose a simple online business that will make me rich. What sort of business do you recommend?
Have any of you ever pursued an online business? If yes, what did you sell and did you meet with much success? Did you need to invest much?
Any relevant input is appreciated.

Thanks.

I think the biggest online money spinners are porn, crime and spam. Which appeals the most?

I understand how one earn from porn but how is it possible to earn from crime (Is it like to give an online assignment to kill somebody?) and spam?

Well I was thinking like perhaps a search engine submission and reporting service, where we can do mass submissions and also promise them to keep their page rank in top 5 I dont know what this would entail, I think besides keywords embedded in appropriate html tags it would also be hit count, so I would then have to learn about all those 'get paid for clicking' ads I see all over to see how that works.

This does seem like alot of research work. Would porno be any easier to setup? I would love to get into porn. Has anyone dabbled in a porn website before?

I think by 'crime' he means sites like torrent sites or file sharing or file sharing search sites. I spend alot of time on these on the weekends for movies and stuff(no not those kind)

Corner the market on raw materials, and you've got something to leverage. You might consider selling zeros and ones in bulk. Especially ones.

fyi post of this type gets purged from DZone (as an example)
So:
1) there are already of people doing it
2) it isn't popular
3) If you're not sure what is involved, you're already way behind.

For 'crime' I was thinking more like 'money mule'/key logger like stuff. I guess something virus/trojan/application related.

I've been down that road. I know it's
glamorous and the parties are great, but you'll end up spending every
dollar you make on jewelry and skintight pants.
