i think your previous ideas for hackomania was gud but need something change like the outllok and the level of the hacking tasks that u supplied there. n if you manage all that in a proper way then you can develop the best site....
That Google employee might not understand the difference between hacking and cracking. Programmers used to be called "hackers" in the earlier days of computing because they "hack code". Richard Stallman of the Free Software Foundation, among many others in the Free Open Source Software community still use use the words "hackers" and "hacking" when referring to people writing programs, modifying source code etc.
Google might perhaps reconsider if the site makes it explicitly clear that "hack" doesn't refer to illegal cracking and whatnot.. although that would probably filter out things like iPhone and iPad jailbreaks..
This kind of site,has to be secure,because it was be bad publicity if you start a site like that and some script kiddie takes it down...(I use to do these sort of things back in the days,taking down "hacker" forums )

currently my aim was not to create whole site which will be non breakable by 90% but i am thinking of working a website / blog which will give a glimpse of a topic on security and then will explain / showcase the same concept through games.
and ya i do agree the security should be high, very high.
Go ahead and build a site that provides tutorials on ethical hacking, that way you wont have a problem with google ads as your site is not hacking but rather countering it.

I think your best bet would be just doing an extensive keyword research for the subject of "hacking" (just make sure it's nothing illegal) and then creating content optimized for those keywords, if you do this well and rank high for the selected keywords you can make some nice money.
I'd say go to a couple places for content idea, you're going to want to somehow get ahold of issues of 2600 Magazine (the Hacker Quarterly), & you should have knowledge on like the history & everything about *what hacking is*...for example, a lot of high school kids & young college kids (when I was in college a few years back) & there were these few kids that singled me out specifically because I always wore T-Shirts like Homer Simpson's Head with the Intel Inside logo on his head & I'd wear stuff like polo shirts that said things like Microsoft, Oracle, you know, standard software & computer kinda stuff & I wear like hats that have the same thing going on (tech stuff & tech company names) & I have a 2600 hat & these 2 guys would always be like "I'm a Hacker" & I'd look at them & be like "oh are you?!?" & they'd ask me what my 2600 hat meant...& I'd tell them, 2600 is a hacker magazine, you can get it at book stores like Barnes & Noble & stuff like that & I remember 1 time one of them asked me, what's the significance of the number "2600"? & I explained...2600 is the frequency of the tone that AT&T, or Bell (not sure which) used to control their telephone long distance switching...
