    Using a couple of scripts found on here I put together a rather shoddy site which lets people search for torrents or rapidshare/megaupload etc sites. The site is http://www.search-download.co.uk and at the moment I just have adsense (not a good idea I know). It wasn't really generating that much traffic (10 uv's a day), up until a few days ago when I found a nice sustainable source and now getting 300-500 daily uv's. Anyway, what do you think would be the best method to make the most money? Adbrite, affiliate, cs, cb, no idea really....if it helps the source of traffic is basically people who have never used torrents, and I expect are not that web savvy - so should be easy to market to!

    Also, in general is it best to promote using a single method, or multiple? I want to keep the site relatively clean, so would prefer to use only 1 or 2 methods at a time.

    Try the blackhat code breaker (search it), that might get some members mad though. Also, I see alot of usenext ads on those type of sites, try signing up for their program. I'm pretty sure theres a thread just like this a few down, check that out too :)

    ok thanks, i'm sure codebreaker would work, but I want people to come back and actually use it, spread the word etc. I'm sure 95% will be put off by having to fill something in, but hey, it's worth a test i suppose!

    OK so I added the c.p.al33d gateway, and here are the stats so far, after a week or so:

    Clicks: 107
    Leads:13
    EPC: $0.07
    Ratio: 12%
    Total: $7

    Been running adsense at the same time and here are the stats for the last 7 days:
    Impressions: 5620
    Clicks: 48
    Earnings: £6.22

    So that works out about $2.50 a day... we all have to start somewhere right! Seen a bit of a drop in UV's, but it seems that people are coming back so the majority are not put off too much by the gateway.
