    As you know HotFile has a ranking system, the higher your rank the more you earn.

    This tutorial will teach you 5 bulletproof ways to improve your rank, you'll avoid the common mistakes many uploaders make when using HotFile to earn money.

    1.
    Always try to get more downloads in total then the number of files you have uploaded, HotFile doesn't like it when you upload too many files that get barely any downloads. This is because more files = more space on their server, uploading a 700mb file that is very popular is better then uploading 10 100mb files that don't do well.

    2. Avoid uploading in parts, every downloader prefers a single download link whenever possible, this is especially true for movies. Remember you should avoid uploading too many files to HotFile whenever possible, why upload 6 parts of a movie when you can upload all of it at once and save the downloader some headache?

    3. Never ever leech the download, each file has a unique md5 and HotFile knows when the same file has been leeched and uploaded 1000 different times to their servers from different accounts. To avoid this problem you should re-rar the download, that will change the md5 and HotFile will think its a non-leeched file.

    4. Delete files that are not popular, so you've uploaded a file and it got only a few downloads? Delete it, the more useless files you have the less your rank so whenever possible clean out these "useless files".

    5. Be active! Login to HotFile often and use your HotFile account to download files whenever possible, you'll drop a rank or two if you haven't visited for weeks, even if your files are getting tons of downloads.

    Why even bother with ranks?
    Ranks were 2008 and stingy systems.

    Go with Fileserve. Idiot proof earning system that I've seen ppl racking in 100 USD/day - Probably better to earn via them than reading an eBook (that you paid 49.95 for) or a trainin course teaching you how to make 50 dollars a day.

    to be honest hotfile are scandalous... the more downloads you're giving them, the more they lower there rank...

    how do I know this?

    I was uploading files, earning, ranking well, then the more i promoted the links, the more downloads I got, the more I noticed how difficult it was to get gold ranking. My ranking dropped to silver, bronze, then copper.

    So I tried something, I left my account for 3 weeks, and guess what happened? My ranking started to rise again, even tho I wasnt uploading any new files. So, seeing that my ranking had gone up again, I started to promote those existing files (not upload new ones)... Guess what happened? My rank dropped again.

    Seems to me they want users to only earn a certain amount per day, if you're uploading lots of files and getting plenty of downloads, they drop your rank to save money. If you upload few files and get a steady stream of downloads, they rise it...

    These companies do this because they are Black Hat. The website may look nice but the people who own them do the same blackhat methods you and i do.

    There is only one way to increase your rank. Stop uploading files to hotfile and see your rank shoot up.
