    I was over at DP (Don't make fun of me please) and noticed that Uploading.com has a affiliate program that pays you $10 for 1000 downloads (unique users). Now I know its not a lot but hey for those that post via rapidshare, mediafire, etc you could make a little coinage.

    Interesting. Anyone's had any experience with this program ?

    I'm thinking along the lines of uploading some anime to torrent sites, GIVING users what they were looking for, and including a Read Me text offering some more animes, screensavers or whatever for free at Uploading.com.

    I would NEVER do that here. Any downloads I post are offered freely, with no strings attached.

    There is a file-sharing site called Ziddu that offers a "paid-to-download" type of deal, but people who download from that site have to put up with a bunch of pop-up windows, automatically loading movie previews, etc. In general, it's just a big pain-in-the-ass for the downloader. I would NEVER put the members of this forum through that . . . and when I see someone post a download here at BHW and they make it so people have to get it through Ziddu, I think it's very tacky, and not in the true spirit of sharing. It's just a trade-off by doing that. Basically what they are saying is, "Here . . . Download this wonderful file I posted and meanwhile, I'll collect my penny or whatever from you." That is what I call a cheap way of "monetizing a download". It's okay if someone does it over there at DP, because there are a lot of clueless idiots there, but to do it here is like trying to "blackhat-a-blackhatter". Most people here are wise to that type of thing, and I even if they weren't aware of it, I just simply wouldn't do it.

    That's my take on the subject.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    So what you're saying is that even if you don't have to pay for software that cost $10+ you think its unfair to deal with popups. Hmmm.

    Anyway this would be for ppl that share a lot with rapidshare, etc.

    You'd make more getting 1000 people to download something from your website with adsense or something

    To theadultsplayground:

    I am saying that I have a lot of friends here at BHW and I would never take advantage of them.

    And yes . . . I have no qualms with pirating software and ebooks. Usually, most people are relieved to find that, after they have looked at the ebook or method they have downloaded here, that it was definitely not worth the money that many of the gurus or "Warriors" were charging for it . . . and often, not worth anything near the price of a used wad of chewed gum.

    There is some good stuff here and there, but often, many of those big "launches" turn out to be a major disappointment and then, people have to jump through hoops to get a refund - IF they can get a refund.

    Why would someone try to monetize a link here? Were a community, there's experienced sharing individuals over here no need to pimp people for a penny for your shares. There's porn forums for that type of stuff, you stand making more from them, rather then trying to profit from a Blackhatter.

    guys take it easy...you might be taking it in the wrong sense....its just a method, he did'nt knew how to write it up in a way that he won't be flamed...i have seen another thread here on bhw about this method which was appreciated....now we all have to think outta box right...the guy just gave you a method, so intead of criticizing find a way with which you are comfortable...for example...download xxx videos cut em up in diff parts and then post the urls on forums related to porn....or watermark youtube and what not ....just be creative you can make $$$ with this method specially if you don't have any capital to get started with any other method which requires $$$ for you to start. Have a nice day :>
    cheers!

    My thoughts exactly... I didn't take it as a way to make money off of BHW users.

    You might try combining this method with something like linkbucks to double your income from this ;)

    BTW, is there a stats page? I've uploaded stuff and can't find a stats page. I'm wondering if they only pay for downloads generated by your referrals...

    Also, anyone been paid by them?

    You need to go to the cash page. You can get there by clicking on the Earn With Us link (if I recall correctly). From there you'll be able to find the Statistics link

    Sweet, thanks given.

    Edit:

    went and checked my stats out... $0.13 ... not bad, considering I only put one link out there, and it's only been a few hours.
