That’s the idea.
I’m seeing this as a hobby (for someone else), a pleasant way to fill one’s hour or two per day, simply summarizing the content of these clickbait sites, with no aim to make a lot of money, just to provide a public service. “Clickbaitsafelysummarized.com” or something more mellifluous, telling folks that they can read all the “promoted” or “learn more” crap with none of the drawbacks.
The only thing that I can imagine would be actionable legally (?) would be if the clickbait sites would be able to show that you’re harming them by costing them viewers, which of course is your intent. Don’t know that that’s a crime, or who they would make the case to, but it’s definitely malicious.
People have been telling me that it would land me in the red, but how much expense could there possibly be, even if I don’t run ads at all? What would a domain name run me, annually? Not too much.
As for my time–well, I’d be doing this as a hobby, so if it fills a few hours a week, that’s kind of what I’m shooting for. How much time would it take to read a few websites, digest them, write a summary?
