    I currently have an image hosting site that is around 4 years old. I have never spent much time marketing the site and with word of mouth there are a handful of paying users. Some of these users have thousands of images on the server and are committed to me for the long run.

    But, are there any Black hat methods of tapping into this site and earning money off their images they have placed on the server? There are thousands of accesses a day for their images. eBay is probably the most active referrer in the logs because many of the users are running auctions..

    Any ideas welcome..

    Not really but I'll keep you in mind if I change. The site makes a little money every month and I do nothing, but I think it could do much better. You would think with over 5,000 - 10,000 unique hits a day from eBay for images, I could do something with that somehow?

    What I'd do is incentives for sign-up's or make members paid for more storage. Turn it into a member site.

    Nothing like setting a trap. plus with photo storage they are bound to pay to keep there pics.
