    So one day I thought of this idea and I'll probably never get around to trying it out so I might as well tell someone I guess. Maybe people already do this but here it is anyway.

    So you make an image hosting site. Then to get traffic you go to the Digg images section and post in the comments mirrors to images...that just happen to be hosted on your image hosting site! So when the original image host goes down people look and see yours conveniently in the comments!

    Maybe it wouldn't even work but yeah there it is. :p

    I guess it would work if images that would be quickly removed from the origianl image host.. Nice idea, but have came across any images that have been removed or the original host has gone down..

    Really? I've come across numerous images that had gone down. Maybe things have changed though, I haven't been digging much in the past months.

    What you need to do is find which ones get removed the quickest and give it a try... Let us know how you get on...

    Im sure its going to be porn pics and the likes.

    I wasn't planning on trying it, that's why I posted this. :p Don't really feel like making an image site.

    I didn't mean images getting removed from anywhere, just when the original image's server can't handle the traffic and crashes. Happens sometimes if it isn't a big site.

    Just a thought: What if you find that there are a lot of nude lady pics that get banned or removed, what you could is pretend to be the person saying you had the pic removed because of copyright violation, then add your link to the post with the same pic(s) but also adding a your affiliate link to AFF for those who want to see more... :)

    You could pretend to be the person regardless of if the pic was removed or is still visable...

    Wow, that is a whole new level to this! :p I never really thought of the fact that some pictures might be removed cause of their content. I was just thinking about servers going down.

    The aff link is a nice touch too. I was just thinking Adsense or some CPM on the image site.

    yeah, you could do that, but you would need to find something that gets 1000's visits a day, and the off chance that the original pic host goes down, then you got to think about how oftern that might happen, then how many people would actually look through the posts and like your link.... I think its a long shot which probs wont work to well for the time and effort you put into finding popular posts...

    I would say, go give it a try see what happens. You could think of these ideas and do nothing, but taking action is the way forward... Your on th right tracks for doing something a little out side the box, but take a few more steps out and give it a shot, i would like to hear how you got on..

    One problem I thought of though is getting a high place in the comments on a popular story. Most people probably wouldn't see the mirror unless you're one of the first comments on the story. Would have to be able to pick out the good ones or something and comment on them early.
