    So I am asking this question because I was in warez area for 3-4 years. I had DLE (datalife engine) script and offering cracked software and links to filesharing services.... Filesharing blogs was very good at this time. Rapidshare.com was at 12th alexa.com position so this is 2010-2011 year

    Now I want to make something similar but different.. I don't want to link to filesharing services. I want to link to filehippo.com download.cnet.com brothersoft.com softpedia.com. Will this a be problem???

    I will put google adsense on that website and earn money if that is possible.

    I remember days when someone post Photoshop cracked version on my website. It was getting good traffic from google.
    So I will make WP blog, Make categories post photos screenshot of software and put link to other website where people can download that software

    Is this good???

    Sure it is, as long as you get proper content and good number of visitors.

    If you want to offer less competitive download directory features you could easily seap through as the only one doing it with foreign niches.

    Other than that just do your research properly and yes it would work.

    So wait...would this be kind of the same as, for example, linking to software on cnet or sourceforge from an adsense blog? Or what about downloading the freeware, promoting it then file-locking it?
