    Just like lots of people on this forum, I'm sick of worrying about the next Google update (yes, I know that there's a good chance of an update in the very, very near future by the way!).

    So, I'm thinking about making a new site in 2-3 months that won't depend on search engines for traffic.

    Imagine having a site that doesn't depend on search engines :cool:

    I've just made a survey that's related to this (to see if it's worth going ahead with it, although I've only asked a few simple questions to make it easy to do). If you could fill it in it'll help me decide whether to go ahead with it or not :)

    I think I know where your going with this .. but in my experience - people shopping online want the product 'yesterday'.

    But I guess it really all comes down to what your offering and how long the wait...

    Jamie you know my thoughts on this. I believe there is a market for what you want to achieve

    Thanks everyone.

    Have recently discovered that there are a good few sites doing what I want this site to do. However, most are horrible looking sites or overly complicated.

    Is it a site where you wholesale order, 100 people or so have to want it, then they all get it cheap?.

    Are you thinking about a MLM business?

    Didn't even know what that stood for before Googling it, so no :p

    Murray - not that either.

    Completed the survey mate.

    Creating a site that doesn't rely on Google absolutely is the way to go.

    Are you thinking of creating a price drop alerts service?

    Yeah it really is the way to go nowadays.

    Not going to lie, you're pretty much spot on. What do people think? Good/bad idea?

    I think it could work well with the following:

    - Amazon products where prices go up and down like a yo-yo (http://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/). However, do enough people actually know about Amazon's fluctuating prices?

    - Products that are purchased regularly such as dog food. This costs me £70 every other month so it would be great to get alerts for when it is on offer.

    - new products such as games releases and technology launches (eg next iPad).

    Would probably take a lot of effort and money to get the word out about the service.

    I agree that it would be useful for stuff you buy regularly. It's pretty much a given that tech/electronic goods drop in price over time, and plenty of sites cover that, but being able to track the price of everyday essentials could be handy.

    Thanks for the opinions :)

    Agree that it could cost a good bit to get the word out about it, but I've an idea that should help with that.

    I just need to get the money together and stuff for this, because it's not going to be cheap.
