    Hello everyone, I am starting a new movie website and I am having a few questions. I see a lot of people everywhere having trouble monetizing this types of websites, based on your opinions, are these websites still monetizable without cpa locks? I want to avoid cpa locks because I wanted to build a website that focused mostly on the userbase.

    Are they monetizable withing the 300-600 viewers per day range? The main keyword I am targeting has 3k monthly unique views, but I am making youtube videos and quality links that will help me increase traffic ( I started the website yesterday and already got to 100 viewers per day), I am aiming to get into around 600 views per day and then move onto other projects, do you think this will bring decent profits (5-10$ daily would be enough).

    Is sharing torrent links in a website illegal? I know streaming and direct downloads within the website is illegal, but what if I only provide torrent links? From what I know the worst it can happen is for someone to tell me to cease the website, am I wrong? Should I abbandon the movie niche?

    I think I know who you are talking about. If it is the same person, he is making that money through content lock which is not really what I wanted to go for, of course if there is no other way to effectively monetize the website I will end up changing routes and going for content lock, otherwise I wanted to know other methods.

    Plus, want to make sure it is legal to share torrent links and host nothing on the website.

    I'm thanking and reping everyone that answered my questions. Thank you all. One last thing, I heard they are shuting down a lot of sites in the movie niche, any tips to avoid being shut down? Will using only torrent links make me immune to being shut down? What should my unique visitor range be to keep on the safe side? Is it safe to build a facebook page and get high subscribers?

    Whether they can shut you down or not depends on the law of the country your server is in. Try to get a server in countries like Sweden or Canada or somewhere the copyright laws of these movies wont affect you.
    By the way, if you put torrent links on your site, you might lose some users eventually because they will learn about the torrents and not come back the next time to your site. If you have some money to spend, talk to the hosting Piratebay is hosted on.

    This keeps getting better, yesterday (third day) got to 190 visitors. Today it seems like I will have even more, bought a facebook like pop today that got me 5 likes already in a couple of hours. Will be building more videos today and hopefully get some decent traffic.

    Btw, website has started to display for the main keyword, it's at 10th atm, hopefully I get to top 3# by the end of the next month.

    Been trying to find websites to partner up with but most high pr websites I find have spammy links that will probably penalize them by the next algo update, if anyone has a website in the movie niche and is looking for link exchaning pm me.

    My website reached 300 visitors per day, I'm thinking of starting the monetization. What do you guys suggest? Anyone making decent earnings in this niche with a specific affiliate?

    Off topic question - are you streaming new movies or the movies for which the DVDs have come out?
