    Hello,

    This was pretty much my first journey,
    (was) because I am moving on to a new one.
    This project is composed of 2 parts bots and website each one is hosted in its own vps
    Database used is Mongodb which is blazing fast (hosted with website)
    One of the unique features of my website is the multilang, I can pretty much add any language in just 2 clicks (not right to left ones cuz still need to modify the template for those)

    The website uses PHP Symfony and docker (very fast setup) freeflix.to
    The bots uses Node Js (Oclif cli)

    - Sync movies from Popcorn Time api
    - Sync Aka's (also known as) from IMDB
    - Sync movies actors/crew/productions companies /translations... from TMDB
    - Download movie torrents (very smart) If there is an mkv file it extract audio/subtitles (to be uploaded separately)
    - Download subtitles of supported languages from opensubtitles and Yify subs (also smart) check if sub is not corrupted and if the language that the api says is really in the sub (saves a lot of trouble)
    - Translate subtitles of not found sub languages
    - Translate movies synopsis if there isn't any from TMDB
    - Uploads movies and subtitles to video providers currently supported rapidvideo, openload, streamango
    - Replace subtitles that were reported (only admin can do that)
    - Check links that were blacklisted by Google and replaces them
    - Website Optimized for natural SEO

    So these are the working functionalities
    My todo list had more than 25 other items that i was still planning to add

    But you might ask ? Why give up after all this work
    Well, To be honest I didn't spend that much time on it
    Also some of the reasons that i gave up on this niche

    • Can't use Adsense (the other ads companies are shit), <- this is pretty much the biggest reason
    • I knew that this niche was not a long term thing, so i felt like i was wasting my time
    • Website got blocked on some countries (i could make another domain)
    • Law ...


    I first month i got ~5K users daily (users not pageview)
    Now pretty much ~1K users daily
    If anyone is planning on starting on this niche, hope you learn something from this thread

    Cool, very smart. Is that 5k all google traffic and did you do any link building? Was the domain brand new? How many pages/movies did you have on the site after the first month?

    Never paid for any ads or backlinks
    ~35% direct, ~50% organic, rest is referral and social (people sharing the website),
    The domain was used by someone 1 year before i bought it (didn't know that when i bought it)
    ~5-6K movies in the first month

    How long did it take you to create your bot?
