    i just setup a new tv shows website, it has around 50 shows atm and im averaging 600-1k visitors per day but i wonder how i could get tons of traffic like other sites do it..ive tried yidio,sidereel & tv duck seems those are just temporary traffic sources, im trying to build long term sustainable traffic, anybody?

    Search engine traffic, spend some time ranking for some nice long tail keywords, it doesn't take that long to see some results, I've got a couple of tv show websites myself, all bringing in a few hits a day, they just kind of sit there now though.

    Hire a freelancer to submit your episodes to yidio.com, sidereel.com, tvduck.com, tvshack.net and other such type sites.
    I get 3k visits from yidio alone.

    They probably banned your domain, have one domain banned by them too.
    Monetize it with adsense, don't use cpa gateways. Don't put ads over the episode. Don't submit same episode twice.

    I bet your website is just another free tv shows streaming site. That would be a bit hard to conquer SERPs considering your nature because then you need to put 1-2 unique paragraph in every of your web page otherwise your site might be flagged due to dupe to bigger tv shows streaming sites.

    MY advise is not to bother with this kind of site anymore.

    Google have just decided to get in on the game themselves with TV show related searches, my predicition will be that if your not one of the "legal" options your site is going to get pushed down to page 3+ in a few months time no matter how hardcore you are at SEO.

    Check out the Google Blog that went up over the weekend for more info.

    Well kinda.

    Its integrated into the main google search option, though at the moment you have to select google video search to get it up. Key being at the moment. Google own Youtube, Youtube is picking up the rights to show TV shows. Do the math.

    I did say in my opinion its not worth doing because of this....

    Again in my opinion it represents the first steps by Google to reclaim this very lucrative and very illegal portion of the internet. If you already have a successful TV site I'm not saying ditch it. I do think for a new site trying to get anywhere was already hard and Google are going to make it even harder in the months to come.

    Try scraping more TV show longtails and then building links to them. Are you doing the web 2.0 articles and then xrumering or blasting them?

    I've found that if the show is popular putting up a preview for the episode on youtube will bring in some traffic. I just put a link to the tv site in the description.
