    First of all I want to say that I followed blackhatworld for months, I've learned some good things, tried some strategies that I found here on the forums but some of them just didn't work for me.


    Today I want to share with you a method that finally worked for me and helped me to make my first 860$.


    Prerequisites:
    • 25$ to start,
    • Some development skills (not necessarily because I'm planning to share the scripts that I used in blackhatworld for the ones who are interested)
    The idea is to sell traffic to people trying to beautify their sites statistics.


    How I proceeded:


    Downloaded a web automation tool called selenium (open source) (I chose selenium over other automated tools because found it's the most powerful and easy the use. it invokes Firefox which gives a true experience and avoid detecting the tool as a bot).

    I created a profile on Firefox, added random agent spoofing extension that creates a random profile for Firefox when you start it(for example it will be detected as opera running on windows then the next time chrome on windows then IOS, then chrome on android, etc.)


    Next step : how to generate the traffic:

    This was the tricky part, as I needed a rotating proxy that gives you new IP address each request mainly from USA, GB and Europe and as I didn't have much money to invest, I Had to find a cheap proxy service that is suitable to my needs.

    I found several providers like https://proxymesh.com/ and http://psproxies.com/
    Both of them have big number of IP addresses and provided rotating proxies

    I went with the second one because:
    • They have a good discount of 70%, I bough their 200T offer (normally for 85$ but with the discount it's 25.5$)
    • Proxymesh limits you to 280 IP addresses per day while psproxies.com do not limit the use of the proxies so it's better for me.

    Development and launch of the service :

    I developed a small python script in 20 minutes that invokes selenium and configure it to use the proxy.
    I proposed the service "Bring almost human traffic to website for one week" in several platforms such as peopleperhour.com and fiverr.com I explained perfectly what I propose (no cheating, no selling automated traffic as genuine traffic, no AD clicking, no youtube video views, etc). And I started receiving requests :) I made 45 sells for 19$ each.


    conculsion:

    Finally I think that I found what works for me which is selling services based on scripts that I develop.
    The best part is that all of it is running on autopilot, i only have to run the script.
    I'm planning to extend the functionalities so if you guys have any ideas for such service. Please share them as I'm planning to launch the tools for free in the forum.


    Attached you can find a proof

    Knowing how to code has always been a money maker for those who know their onions :)

    @OP you did a great job! Brilliantly done and I'm pretty sure you'll be earning thousands with this in no distant time. And before some people come here and try to copy exactly what the OP did, my advice is to find what works for you because not everybody will be successful using this method. Good luck!

    You could properly code this in PHP or some other language and have it run on a server and scale it up massively :p Just throwing an idea out here

    Do you think that the automation can be done through WinAutomation, Ubot and maybe iMacros? I'm kinda allergic on coding...

    I think so, you can automate with any peice of software you like, I tested phantomjs also, but I prefer selenium because it's opensource and easy to use and I'm used to it.

    Are you multi threading or multi processing? Or you just make a request on selenium one time and you just rotate the proxies and the user agents? Just get requesting isnt enough to add views?

    The first version I have was not multi threaded, now, I'm changing it to support multi threading. I don't manage the rotation of the proxy, psproxies.com provided rotating proxies, so I put my Ip:port in the script and each request I make with selenium they route me through one of their exit servers.

    Thanks mate. I'm extremely good on selenium and I can write very complex scripts. I was searching for a trick like this for a long time. I'm going to try this method with my own script and it works with me. Any other advice please?

    They provide unlimited bandiwdth and they say that they have 6000+ proxy server worldwide. the good thing is that all their plan give you access to all the exit servers. the limitation is the number of simultanous threads. in my case I bought 200 threads to test. when I scale this up I will buy more maybe.

    Good job OP. I have a better way to do it with what i already have. I could even delivery traffic from google to their site instead direct traffic :)
