    Here's a simple method that I think have been posted before.. this one has a few twists tho. And you can earn way more than $100/week with this if you give it some time.

    What you need
    - a blog
    - accounts at various bookmarking sites
    - cpalead account
    - a few minutes free each day

    The method is basically this: You post tv show episodes on your blog, and people have to complete an offer in the cpalead gateway to get access. For each person that fills out a survey in the cpalead gateway, you get $0.5-$2.

    What episodes do I post on my blog?
    Head over to piratebay or some similar torrent site and find the "tv shows" category. Keep posting all episodes that are in the "top 100" list. These episodes are searched for in google right now, so lets take advantage of that.

    Where can I find episodes to post on my blog?
    I use youku dot com
    Example search on youku: "Prison.Break.S04E19"
    You then click on the video, and copy the embed code:
    [​IMG]
    Copy that code, and make a new post in your blog.

    What does my blog post look like?
    Lets start with the post titles.. I've found that the format below works best and ranks for the most kind of keywords (people use funny keywords when looking for tv shows online):
    Prison Break S04E19 Full Episode | Watch Prison Break Season 4 Episode 19 Online Free
    So that's your title.. As for the rest of the post, I just copy and paste the title on the first line of the post, and then paste the code from youku. No more is needed.

    Cool, but how do I get traffic?
    Spam bookmarking sites with keywords like "watch prison break s05e19 online", or "prison break full episode s04e19". these kinds of keywords have close to no competition so you'll rank with just links from bookmarking sites.

    -----------------

    Suggestions
    - Use a tool for the bookmarking.. Could save you a lot of time
    - Do things in this order: Pick episode in piratebay, check if its posted on youku, then post it on your blog.
    - Have a .txt file where you keep track of the various series and when the next episode comes out, as well as which episodes you've already posted.

    I guess that's it.. I made my first "real" money doing what I'v described above.

    I guess this is really scalable too, no reason you couldn't do this for hundreds of episodes.

    Nice share man.

    What? How?

    True.. And if you've been doing it for a while, you're ranking for tons of keywords.. Traffic only gets bigger and bigger.

    I know, and I said that above..

    Wrong...

    A blog post I posted earlier today is now on the top spot for a "watch prison break s04e18 online"-type of keyword.. All I did was adding my post in various social bookmarketing sites. anyone can start doing this with immediate success.

    Where do you host your site? Seems like my hosting finally want me to politely 'gtfo' or move such sites from main server.

    Yea, this still works, has been working since months. Been able to rack up far more than 100 bucks a day. Use brain and twist a little. Easy money, that said.

    I didn't think about embedding them, Saves you a lot of bandwidth. To save even more bandwidth you could not even put any video at all just put a torrent or a rapidshare link. And say there Ipod and PSP format, that way you don't have to worry about the whole hosting problem. I think ill try this, this weekend.

    I don't understand this part:
    "The method is basically this: You post tv show episodes on your blog, and people have to complete an offer in the cpalead gateway to get access. For each person that fills out a survey in the cpalead gateway, you get $0.5-$2."

    How you create a gateway that they have to fill out to get access?

    Thanks for any help!

    CPALead has a premium content gateway. Or you can make yourself one and use different offers from other network and cut their [cpalead] share. There was a thread about it recently, search.

    Most hosting are douche err, I mean touchy about copyrighted material linking, too. A DMCA or Disclaimer on visible place on the site will save you lot of headache. Funny enough, I've plenty of blogger blogs with embedded videos and they were never flagged or shutdown [note: I had disclaimer].

    Hostgator..

    Yeah, but I don't think cpalead would like that.. It takes like 30 seconds to find the episode on youku anyway.

    Register with cpalead, create a new gateway in your account, and then add that code to header.php in wordpress. (The way the cpalead gateway works is that you add a code to your site, and then everyone who comes to your site has to fill out an offer in order to see the site.)

    I'd also like to know.. Would be a good thing to have just in case.

    I don't know.. You aren't hosting the videos on your site, so idk.. What's the chance of them checking your site anyway?

    I wrote it myself. Nothing complicated or too 'legal' speech. It just need to make some points clear that (a) You're hosting none of the video (b) You embed the videos from third party sites (c) Therefore any violation by third party site, the owner of this blog can't be liable. (d) You're not responsible for user-submitted content (e) For any removal of content, please forward an email to [myawesomenessemail] (f) Any copyrighted material that is being posted is a property of original copyright holder. (g) Lastly, making it clear that you're merely a "index".

    Point (c), yes, say that you allow user to submit content.

    Good luck mate, make sure you be ready to get booted anytime, and keep another host information as backup - unless you somehow block the complaints to reach hostgator. Hosting don't give a shit about such sites, they just get too paranoid of legal notices, if received. And hostgator is one of them.

    Yes, you can. Reasons to not use blogger? Well, it may affect your conversion rate.
