    Ok, for the first time since I thought about starting with IM, I started to do some CONSISTENT work, I've applied myself and I decided to start with these filehosts which seem to be very popular right now, more exclusively Filesonic and Wupload which pay about $40 for every 1000 downloads, I've been posting exactly 100 unique, medium quality posts every day on EACH of the top 20 traffic warez forums, most of this posts are about the most popular daily games/movies/tv and music warez releases.

    So we're talking about 2000 posts every day scattered amongst all these forums.

    And I sadly have to say that my expectations were in no way reached, my expectations for this was that I would have AT LEAST 10 downloads for each post, which would make me some 20.000 downloads a day, this was my minimal expectation considering the quality of my posts and the fact that I was posting on high traffic forums.

    Instead, I am getting no more than 200 downloads a day, thats 1 download for every 10 posts.

    At this point I sincerely do not understand how are there any other filesonic and wupload affiliates making over $200 a day, I'm working my ass off posting on forums, almost 6 hours a day and I'm not even making $20 a week...

    Can anyone offer advice/suggestion as to what might I be doing wrong?

    Thanks

    No, I believe the problem is the insane competition these warez forums have, for instance, on some of this forums, I post a new thread and ONLY 2 minutes later when I refresh the forum, my thread is already on the 3rd on 4th page.

    We're talking about forums that have insane traffic and thread creation, take warez-bb.org example, only in the games section alone, more than 100 threads are created every 5 minutes (that's 3 pages worth of new threads)


    And I simply lack the man power to continuously bump the threads into the first page.

    I agree with the OP. I have experienced this thing, There is intense competition and there are countless threads made every second. But yet, I did manage to make a decent money with a few uploaded files some 5-6 months back. I got a free premium membership twice and I uploaded some 50-60 porn stuff and spread in 8-10 forums and stopped, though my threads were buried I was getting regular downloads. The money I made wasn't that great but it was 15$ in the 1st month and 17$ in the second. My premium membership ended then and I stopped posting as My net is too slow to upload large files.

    about two years I was making $20 - $30 a day sharing files with uploading.com when they paid out $10 per 1000 downloads... They deleted my account out the blue though without any warning, and didn't respond to any of my emails I sent them...

    I would steer clear of ever using uploading.com. You'll spend months building a a large database of files and then suddenly they'll pull the plug on you like they did to me.... It's not a good feeling.

    FileSonic.com are generally poor for pay per download. The best way to earn with them is creating a porn blog, and doing pay per sale fixed $10... You can get like 3-5 sales a week if you're sharing high quality porn.

    hmmm... you know what you may want to go the sharecash way... just saying...

    maybe a bit different for you... and also the forums you are posting to are cutthroat.. best approuch there would be to trool on forum for a whole day and post on other poeples post and creat a thread about every other post. that way you get traffic and eyes at the same time best way would be to make sure you post in hours where the traffic to that forum is kinda slow...about what 2 in the afternoon.. that way you post has more "eyes " on it and not that many new thread poting up ....

    just a sudjestion

    Try uploading porn and make some megathreads on popular porn uploading forums. That's where the money is.

    filesonic is fast and reliable..the reason why u r not earnin is that u have to change the plan to "pay per download" by default it must be in premium affiliate!

    Does Filesonic have a limit to how much a free user can upload total? I'm at 3GB so far,and will probably be at 5GB by Monday.

    I read about uploading sometimes and what I see is that you should focus on what you are upload (try to find hot thing, thing people want and quick).
    Beside, you should focus on let say around 3 forums and build the reputation there other than 20 forums.

    I am reading these posts and what sticks out to me is you guys are doing this manually. Why don't you create a bot to do this for you? Automation make sense over here.

    NegativeCompleteness - if you are willing to download/upload and work a few hours each day i think it will be better for you to start a website/blogger blog with a certain niche in Music or something like that (i can suggest electro/dance/club/tribal etc) because :
    1) the competition is low (at least it use to be when i first started) and the traffic is higher and higher (even rap/r&b singers are making club songs/remixes)
    2) each day new songs get out (if not, at least a few remixes for sure :D )

    i was doing this way back and i was using a blogger blog. i was doing 2000 UV/day but i was interested only in the traffic BUT, from time to time, i was uploading some songs to Hotfile (1-2 times a week) and i was getting only from the downloads like 1$/each day (30$/month). the traffic was monetized with Clicksor (i didn't know about CPA etc) and i was getting like 1-2$/day (another 30-60$).

    the thing is i was only doing copy/paste work (time : like 20 min/day). but if you have time to twist a little your posts or at least just download/upload files, you will be making at least 100$/month.

    another tip : make link exchange with all the websites you can find on your niche. search website in google, locate the contact info, send an email to all of them. most of them will agree to do this (but be sure you will have at least 50 songs posted - no one will do LE with your sparkly new website :) ). the nest update you will have PR2+ (than you could send again emails to the ones that rejected you - cause now you have a quality website :D). and your posts will get indexed instant (very important in this niche)

    this kind of websites have very poor on-page SEO so you could get in front of them quite easy. Funny : i remember when i got 2 emails from the owners of 2 sites where i was copy/pasting stuff mad because i was always before them in google :p

    so if you have time to spend, this will bring you some money to start doing other things.

    hope it helps

    cheers

    This gave me some ideas. OP are you getting latest content? I recommend getting networked with some crackers or release groups. Just search and you can find them. And make the name attractive if you go BH or u can give best content with sharecash etc. Make sure your content rocks as it is important. You can also give 1 free with another. I had sucess with motivational books with free EXCELLENT BOOKS like Think and grow rich which is now in public copyright. Just use imagination. You can make decent Startup money here.

    Sorry about the format, from mobile its hard to format.

    PS:- I will give u a book that is really rare on Downloading servers. MOONLIGHTING ON THE INTERNET BY YANIK SILVER. Btw if u get a copy send me a link too.

    try the porn niche, you would get double or may be triple downloads than what you are getting now :D

    The porn niche, imo is very tricky, I browsed some porn forums and I indeed see most threads with insane view counts, but most of it is unique content, threads with duplicated content are almost worthless.

    If I could get my hand on free UNIQUE porn that would be great (and please don't suggest to make my own, that one gets old) ;)
