    I was considering downloading or purchasing a website clone script of a site (Haven't decided which one yet) and was wondering if it is really worth it. Has anyone else had any success which such sites? I don't really have hundreds of dollars to hire people to build the site for me. One category I found interesting was traffic exchange sites such as addmefast.com

    Any suggestions?

    Personally I would not bother, I guess there is too much that can go wrong. Also not many people are into a copy of another website, a bit like all these Fiverr clones which nobody will ever buy from.

    Yeah I suppose that makes sense, something unique would be better for the long term after all...

    I wouldn't recommend it. When I was new in the business, I started a 9gag clone site that generated 50k and it was banned due to it being a clone.

    That's a bummer, I decided that making a website clone wouldn't be in my best interest and will try something different.

    Exact clone is a bad idea. Probably can look into scrape from multiple source + auto spinning (wp robot)

    So, it is okay to clone and add other features to sites?

    Website clone script is really good idea why because if your making website it take a lot of time so that you have to choose best clone script. Many companies are providing best clone scripts and it have a lot features basedupon your clone script. In my Experience i have purchase Nex deal Clone script it really nice. It is easy way create online business website.. This cost also very affordable.
