    I've been with PPD since November of 2012 and I've only recently joined a CPA network. When I first started PPD I never expected to make much money out of it until I woke up and found almost $700 sitting in my Fileice account balance. I actually had to slap myself to see if I'm still sleeping.

    You can check out how I did it here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ow-my-site-went-viral-making-300-700-day.html

    Am I still making that amount everyday? Nope. I got lazy after I started seeing those numbers rolling in every day, plus all the distractions around me didn't help. I didn't setup any other niches or do anymore work. I made a couple of fatal mistakes that pretty much took the niche down. I still have it up and running but it's not making as much as it used to. It was a good learning experience, it prepared me for setting up new niches and what precautions to take.

    As of now I am working with Fileice and AWM. I was contemplating whether I should just completely move to AWM because of the ability to control what offers are being displayed to the visitor. But I couldn't say goodbye to Fileice's sexy widgets. During this journey I might work with some other PPD/CPA networks as well. I've worked with Cleanfiles before and I've had some success with them so I'll be using and testing them for some niches.

    The Setup
    Old Desktop Computer Where most of the work will be done ​
    Macbook Air Lets me work while I'm on the go ​
    VPS A place to run my automated tools ​

    The Game Plan
    • [*=left]Create quality videos for all niches [*=left]Create quality landing pages [*=left]Use blogger as a test bed for new niches [*=left]If the niche is popular, invest in hosting and a domain [*=left]Create a Facebook fanpage and Twitter profile for each hosted website [*=left]Upload videos to YouTube and various other video sharing sites [*=left]Boost videos on vagex, u2bviews, etc [*=left]Order high retention views from the BST when needed [*=left]Run manual and automated SEO campaigns on websites [*=left]Order SEO campaigns from the BST when needed [*=left]Wash, rinse, repeat
    Codenames
    I will be updating the work and progress of my websites with codenames to help keep track of everything here. I won't be giving away my niches and the codenames will have no relation to the niche at all. It'll just be some random names that my head is thinking about.
    Stats
    I'll be posting my stats across all networks together for the day. For example the total that I post will be the total for Fileice and AWM combined.
    Target Date
    January 1, 2014

    Right now I have 4 sites setup, 3 that are live and 1 that is almost complete. I also have 2 sites on blogger, one that?s bringing me in some cash and the other one is pretty much dead.

    Both blogger sites have videos for them but none of my hosted sites are getting any traffic from videos, they?re all getting traffic from Google.

    What I got done

    Today I worked on another niche. I?ve gotten half way to finishing the landing page. Basically all the work I could get in for the day.

I have to build a video for this site asap and start building more backlinks again. I want that number one spot for all the keywords I'm targeting [​IMG]

    Hi there, thanks for the info. I'll be following! You mention "BST" a few times, what is this? Tried googling but I'm a noob so don't know what I'm looking for

    Good luck with the journey, wish you the best of look. You seem determined, just keep at it and spin your method with new twists until you lock in something that works real well, then just upscale it. I will look into this thread for updates from you, all the best.

    Buy Sell Trade. It's the marketplace on BHW.
    I'm using blogger as well as paid hosting.
    I ranked the sites doing my own personal SEO on them and/or with sellers from the BST.
    I give the visitors what they are looking for :)
    I'm using serpbook to track my keywords.
    Sure, my skype is: kinberrylee

    nice work man. A also experienced the same thing with adsense before my account got banned. I also learned the hard way that you should have other streams of income , so that when one falls, there are others to draw from.

    Question Kinlee,

    With your viral method, did you actually give people what they thought they were there for once they did the referrals and passed the content locker or was it just a fake file?

    Hi Kinlee,
    your earnings looks cool. Do you use real content? or some fake like keygen etc? Any tips in finding niches? I am really having hard time finding niches.
    Thanks for help :D

    Just curious what type of videos are you using? If any.

    If slide shows, do you provide your own voice over or from fiverr.

    Probably but you'll have to work twice as hard. Youtube is a great source of traffic and if you're not getting any from it you're losing leads.
    Sometimes it's better if you learn the hard way.
    Yes they do get something real. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
    Some are real, some are fake.
    If you're trying to find what niches to get into, keep up with what's trending, look around you, stay observant. Niche ideas can come from someone you're having a conversation with, pay attention to their problems or something they mention that they want. Goto popular blogs and see what they're posting about. It's not hard to find a niche, if you're having doubts about the niche and you feel that it won't make any money just go for it. Find out for yourself if it'll convert or not. Don't get paralyzed over analyzing.

    Right now only one of my niches is using a video and it's nothing but ripped footage from another video with my link to my blog on it. It's bringing in some change every day.
    I sometimes use my own voice and I have used fiverr as well. If you're targeting countries like the USA make sure your English is clear and easy to understand.

    Do you recommend any type of PPD that doesn't limit you at 600$ unless you give them tax info?

    I'm using Fileice and they never asked for anything tax info. Maybe cause I'm not from the US.
    Check out cleanfiles, I think they don't ask for any tax info but I'm not 100% sure about it.
