    Have a content locking site that ranks? Want to make more money with almost no extra effort? Follow the guidelines below. No single guideline will result in an epic earnings increase, but if you implement all of them, you can easily increase your earnings by 10%+, maybe more if your current site sucks.


    Steal the Best “Verification” Script You Can Find

    Most content lockers rely on some sort of “human verification” script. If you look around at the most popular content locking keywords you’ll find some pretty sexy scripts.

    A big thank you to the people who originally paid for these scripts to be made! We can steal them for ourselves with a nifty little tool called HTTrack. You can download an entire website with the tool, which means we can download the entire content locking path of the sexy site, make some edits, and re-upload it on our site to use for ourselves.

    The vast majority of the time these “scripts” are just a few different HTML/CSS tricks, so if you steal it with HTTrack, you’ll get it to work on your site pretty easily. It’s not like there is a complicated backend that you can’t access. Almost all of the time it is just HTML/CSS and if there are any libraries used they are usually basic JS ones - and they’ll be downloaded with HTTrack anyways if they aren’t pulled from an external source automatically.

    You will have to do some modifications to the script once you download it to make it work for your site in particular. Every script will be different so I can’t tell you exactly what those changes are. Just download HTTrack, find a good locker, download it, and start messing around with the files to make the changes you need to (use control + F to search for text to replace, and Inspect Element in Chrome to see where image locations are), then upload it to your site and you’re done.

    You can also pay someone to make you a completely unique sexy content locker script, but stealing them is cheaper.


    Make Your Above-The-Fold Official & Attractive

    At the start all you need on your ranked page is a button that goes to your script folder. But, if your site doesn’t look official, that is going to make a certain number of people bounce right away. Only the dumbest of the dumb will fall for a crappy content locking site. If you make it look a little better, you can nab some conversions from people who would usually ignore you.

    Pay a designer to make you a neat above-the-fold design, or do it yourself. Just make it look unique and not like an ordinary website does at the top. Make it look like an interface for a script. I like a big image to the left, a headline on the right with 2-3 sentences of subheadline explanation, then a big button to go to the script. Nothing fancy, but not just a button either.

    If you do that your bounce rate and CTR to the script will decrease and increase respectively by quite a bit.


    Put Effort Into Your Locker Copy

    Just like your design, your copy matters. Bad copy will only attract the dumb of the dumb. Good copy, again, can nab some people who might not otherwise convert.

    Take 10 minutes to write some really convincing copy for your locker. At the very least, proofread your copy so that you don’t have errors. When I’m looking at competitors I see people making spelling and grammar errors in the instructions all of the time - periods between punctuation, incorrect plurals, etc.

    Everyone who can potentially convert is reading these instructions, and a single mistake or non-persuasive line can get them to not convert. Just make your copy sound somewhat official and you will convert better.


    Make Your Sitelinks Legit

    Most people won’t look at anything but the homepage and the script page. But some will. If you have an FAQ and About section, some people will go there before trying to locker. It won’t be a large percentage - maybe 1% to 5% of visitors. But hey, a 1% to 5% earnings increase is worth a couple minutes of work.

    Go to your sitelink pages and format them well with decent copy. You don’t need to, of course. Content locking sites convert with almost anything. But better copy on sitelink pages can only help you convert a higher number of visitors.


    Cycle Content Locker Codes Between Different Networks

    This one is obvious, but split test different content locking network codes with a simple PHP script. Let them run for a month equally and see which one performs the best. Then, switch to that one full-time. If your earnings start to fall on the chosen network at any time, do another test to confirm that it is still the most profitable.

    A lot of the time, it won’t be.


    Add Some Copywriting To Your Meta Tags

    Your meta title is usually your keyword. But you can insert some nice stop words that help with CTR from the SERPs without messing up your on-site SEO.

    Words like safe, free, instant, and easy should all be considered.

    Make sure you have a neat, to-the-point, and persuasive meta description, too. A good description can pull the searcher to click on your site if he or she isn’t convinced by just the headline. Being #1 doesn’t guarantee that you will get the click - just a higher percentage of clicks. Even if you are #1 you should still be using good copy in both your meta title and description.

    Sometimes Google will give you whatever meta tag it thinks is best, but some of the time you can manipulate your meta tag to increase your CTR. As long as you don’t make it too crazy Google probably won’t replace it is what I’ve found.

    This guideline becomes most effective when you are competing with other identical sites in the SERPs for a competitive keyword. But it still helps with non-competitive keywords.


    Make Locker CSS Match Site/Brand CSS

    Last but not least, do not use the default design that your CPA network gives you. Use the content locker tool to make the colors match up with the colors of your site. The colors of your site should match the colors of whatever your content locker is based around - e.g. if it’s based on a game, use the same colors as the game’s logo. If you make the colors synchronized across the board you will subconsciously convey an “official” vibe to the visitor. Shit, a lot of non-tech-savvy visitors won’t even realize that you’re not the official company if your colors are on point...

    None of the above tips will double your earnings instantly. Or they shouldn’t, unless your site is a pile of crap. They are all small improvements. But if you make them all, or at least a few of them, you will likely find that your earnings increase by 10% or more - and the above improvements take an afternoon at most to implement if you focus. It’s worth it.

    If you have a content locking site, go now and try one or a few, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the results.

    Nice, but why steal others stuff instead of learning to create your own?

    You could do that too, however this guide does not have a moral compass, so I mentioned both HTTrack and creating your own. :)
