    How do you guys make money with torrents? Is it that spam you sometimes see with RAR files being password protected and then you have to fill out a survey to get the password? Do people actually complete that stuff?

    Thanks.

    That technique is not as effective as it used to be but it still works.

    Yeah , as a newb to this , i tend to lack confidence in the survey method , seeing as : i never wanted to buy anything through a surprise guerrilla survey ,and ,nowadays ,i just immediately delete anything that i get that's locked this way.

    Apparently there are a teeny tiny amount of people that don't mind buying something in the hopes of getting a password to unzip a "free" keygen. I imagine , juveniles that have access to parents bank card?

    A more legit approach that these people use can be : just giving the desired file in the torrent , and including a text file in the download with url's promoting other ventures.

    Torrent sites themselves tend to have "low rent" looking ad banners to support their upkeep , so , i doubt any torrent sites do any sort of partner program / ad revenue sharing programs.
