    Hello,

    Im starting a gaming channel because im getting enough of worrying that my PPD videos will get deleted.

    What should I do to get started? I think I should add hr views and likes. I will comment to videos about that same game. So do u guys think I need hr views and likes, or should I try "legit" ways?

    And btw, 75% of my watchers will download my files, this time no PPD, now adfly.

    What you think?

    Monetizing your channel with adfly just sucks. Mark my words. You won't earn enough money with them.

    With 15,000 clicks to my PPD website link I make roughly US $ 520. But with 15,000 clicks to an adfly link I would make only US $ 7.5. So why the hell would a sane person monetize with adfly?

    Well lets make this clear... I will make minecraft (surprise!!!) videos with custom maps. Videos will be over 20min long and people can also download my map. I will get my money from adsense, adfly is just extra. Almost all minecraft makers use adfly, they get over 200k daily clickd with it. And hey this will be just hobby.

    I already play daily 2h, so why not make some extra money with it :)
    Now im again thinking "why did I open this thread..."

    What a load of rubbish. Maybe the small, boring little channels but a majority of the larger channels will not touch adfly.
    Love to know where you get these figures from or are you simply pulling them out of you arse?

    Well usually all mods, maps and texture packs have adfly link. In their videos or their forum posts. Those threads have over 500k views too.

    No need to be harsh now everyone.
    Keep Adsense #1 in priorities and you'll do well, of course monetizing by sending traffic to your blog can enhance your profits too. You must offer something of course.
    Unless you are truly launching a gaming channel as in "pewdiepie" status, where you're focusing on popularity and fame. That's saturated to high Heaven though.

    Hey could someone reply to these questions:
    1. Then what you guys suggest me to use for download links? No ppd, im looking to get fans, not haters.
    2. Should I create new account or use my 3 year old channel without videos?

    Get MediaFire premium account for $5/month and you will get direct download links (hotlinks) to the content. Otherwise if you want free storage without direct links you can still go for MediaFire or Mega.
    Use the 3 year old account as long as it is named appropriately, or the name can be changed. If not, just create a new account.
