    Don't bother. They do get lots of traffic but they don't convert well :(

    I have one, and it's been up for almost a year. I get lots of traffic but I don't make much money from it. I've even tried the gateway approach too. Booooooo.

    This would be good with popunders...

    What are those WP plugins and how do we find videos?

    Thank

    Have a look on DP, I got a database of tv shows with three updates for $5 or something...

    The links expire quickly though, and the shows get flagged and deleted.

    This is really a noob question.

    Read the following thread to know more about the abbreviation used on BHW.(I think you know what BHW is:D)

    Video sites are profitable, you just need to learn how to promote them right. I made $1k from one site in a month without spending a cent on advertising. The main reason people don't make money from video sites is because they buy a db from DP but they don't promote it precisely enough and just promote it on a larger scale. Is it better to promote single movies/tv series as you will get more targeted traffic :)

    I used to have a bunch of watch tv show/movie online sites. I would get the videos from hulu.com or megavideo.com or take it from other sites. I had adsense which would get a few clicks, but i made the most with zango and cpalead.

    Yea Zango is getting saturated now. My ratio was 1:9 on watchgossipgirl dot com but now it's around 1:20. CPA Lead is sort of the same. Back in the day it was extremely easy to make $150 a day but now its hard enough to make 1/3 of that :(

    I did this quite a while ago. The problem with using gateways is that sites like nabolister and sidereel all just ban your site instantly. So then your left with a few shittier sites and SEO to bring in the majority of the traffic.

    Atm im promoting a movie site on a broad scale with CPA offer banners. It doesnt make much, maybe 2 - 3 dollars if im lucky. But it grows by itself. With no gateways you get a shit tonne of natural links and return visitors.

    I just hit the 42k/day visitors mark on my movie site just yesterday. Weekend traffic is always the best for me. Brought in about $170 yesterday. I have only Adbrite ads, Clickbank, and CPM banner. Don't ever use Zango or CPAleads gateway, they'll just make your traffic drop.

    Could you do this:

    • Go to a torrent tracker
    • Download Episodes of a show or whole movies even
    • Get offshore hosting (can be pretty cheap)
    • Get a domain from DomainsByProxy
    • Install WP
    • Upload vids to YouKu.com or another video hosting website that ignores DMCA notices [ideas?] (or even host the vids yourself)
    • Go from there?

    Would this work?

    Offshore hosting provider E.g.:
    Code:
    http://www.serverfly.com/offshore-web-hosting.htm
    Completely Anonymous domain registrar E.g.:
    Code:
    http://www.katzglobal.com/hosting/offshore-domain-whois.html
