    Hey,

    Recently I started a thread about my Little success with sharecash ( earned about $2000) .

    After that i decided to move in to proper CPA campaigning.
    I m sharing a detailed report of how my CPA campaign is going on.
    I m actually very depressed about this .
    To set this CPA campaign i worked for more then 15 hours trying to understand each and everything related to this field. but the result i m getting is not good at all.

    Here goes my method
    and my complete report


    1)Inspired by these two thread
    (a)http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/318214-method-images-my-800-day-youtube-method-twist-applied.html
    (b)http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/324074-method-how-i-made-250-two-days.html

    I planned to start a cpa campaign based on Youtube comment exploit

    2)I made a website on a carefully selected topic .

    3) i had no content locker .As i cant use gateways provided by cpa networks bcos they might not approve me of my traffic.Neither i have money to buy the top class content locker CLPrp (will buy it as soon i start getting some money again) . So following these two tutorials

    (a)http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo-tools/210109-free-cpa-gateway-content-locker-code.html
    (b)http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo-tools/223989-tutorial-free-content-locker-designed-cpa-email-submits-think-combo-bhcb-godcpa.html

    i got the code and modified and made my own content locker ( which doesnot have Geo targetting script yet . i will make it later)
    my content locker have almost all the feature a content locker should have. i will share it here after some more tweaking

    3) Now as the cpa network might have problem with the traffic so i followed this tutorial
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/319585-tut-code-how-fake-your-referer-fake-referer-any-offer-fake-referrer-script.html

    and applied it on my website.for faking referrals

    4)i m into 3 networks . i chose 1 email submit cpa offer from all 3 networks and made a whitehat website for each of them ,so that i can use that white hat website as a fake referral. If you dont know what am i talking about then read the above tutorial about faking referrals

    5)i started youtube campaigning.
    (a)I created 50 new youtube accounts ( dont ask me how. i cant share it (b) I started spamming youtube in smart way. i worked straight for 6 hours non stop .
    (c)i started getting traffic to my page
    (d)I went to sleep :)


    Today evening after Coming back from office. Here is my result

    I M UPSET :( VERY UPSET

    1) My bit.ly statistics

    [​IMG]

    As you can see.

    (a) Link 1 is my website. it got 912 hits .
    (b) Link 2 Is my First Email submit CPA offer . People clicked 120 times on it.
    (c)Link 3 is my second Email submit CPA offer . People clicked 162 times on it.
    (d)Link 4 is my Third Email submit CPA offer . People clicked 171 times on it.

    Summary: 912 peoples wants to see my website content. All found content locker in my website . Out of those 453 are desperate to see my content and click on the offer to fill it.

    Now. see the reports from my cpa networks

    For LINK 1 or cpa offer 1
    [​IMG]

    It shows only 20 clicks ?What the hell . where are others ? Bit;ly says there were 120 peoples.
    LEAD = 0 , EARNED MONEY = 0


    For link 2 or cpa offer 2
    [​IMG]

    Total click 123 , but bit.ly says : 162, All right
    Lead = 8 , EARNED MONEY = $ 6.34

    LINK 3 or cpa offer 3

    [​IMG]

    Impression (79-4) = 75 , Bit.ly says 171 , BAD BAD
    LEAD = 2 , Money earned = 2.50


    ------------------------------------------------------

    SUMMARY,

    910 peoples went to my website,
    453 peoples clicked on email submit cpa offers
    ONLY 10 CONVERSIONS

    MONEYEARNED = $8.84

    that is very little traffic if ur on top for 15 viral videos....youtube changed its code some time ago...the top comments are only visible to your ip but not to others....u can easily get 300-500 hits in 30 min from a viral video if your comment is on top...did you check if the comment is getting to top or not from behind a proxy...are u using tubenoia or doing it manually or a different bot

    I'm PRETTY sure this has to do with the country your users are from.

    For instance on your landing page did you have a geo targeting script so you only get US visitors to be able to have the link to the submit?

    I'm pretty sure that submit is for US only, so that would explain why you have many clicks but not many show up on the CPA Network

    Not bad, but keep on working and experimenting!

    Btw, random YT traffic quality is not as high converting all the time :) Not Targeted, will get low conversions.

    Thanks for the input. i know m not using geo targetting for now as i dont have a proper content locker. i will have to code my own :( .
    still as per bit.ly stats around 50% of visitors are US.
    i guess i better find better cpa networks

    Your missing the point of youtube - its abt niches - NICHES - Target specific Niches - Dont just comment on every video - Find videos related to a NICHE!!!!!!!!!!!

    It sounds like you had somewhat unrealistic expectations. Regarding your "missing" traffic, the member above has correctly identified the source of your loss. The offers you have at the networks are specific for US traffic, but bit.ly tracks it all, so unless your network automatically redirects international traffic somewhere else, then you simple lose a click, and your users see "This offer is not available in your area," or similar.

    Some have said that youtube is about niches, which is definitely true, and you would do well to highly target the comments you made to match both your niche, and the video you are commenting on.

    Overall the missing element for you has been scale, and getting your comments to the top. You are competing for some of this comment space against people who are using automated tools. It is somewhat unrealistic to expect to do better than them unless you innovate your process a bit. There are sometimes ways to accomplish big things with less work.

    If you had a consistent method for getting your comments to the top of the comment pile, then you could effectively evaluate this type of campaign. Until you achieve scale of 1000+ hits per day to your offers don't take any of the information as gospel.

    In my opinion, if you keep working at this you will find the time investment is well worth it. 15 hours to make $6-$10 may seem like a big amount, but you are over the hump my friend. The hardest money to make online is the first money. Now that you know how to make it - you can tweak and improve your methods until you achieve your goals.

    Solve your bottlenecks in your model, and the floodgates of cash will open. Good luck.

    Also. bit.ly gives you country wide stats.
    Check the analytics link on the top and you will find out how many of these clicks were from US IPs.

    I think the major problem is that you use shitty cpa networks or the network number 2 looks bad. you should go with maxbounty or some other that pay like 1.2$-1.8 each offer..

    Get youtube partnership and use link in video (annotation). This will gain effect!

    OK, TIme for some Updates

    Here is what my results till now.

    I have modified my Content locker and included geo targeting script . (however i have cpa offers for very limited amount of countries)

    Anyway here the screen shots

    1) My total Bit. ly clicks

    [​IMG]


    As you can see most At second position the country is INDIA .and i have no email submits for them so those visitors will never convert :(
    same with MALASIA and PHILIPINS ...No offers for them

    2)Hits on my Main money sites and my cpa offers

    [​IMG]

    Total hits on my main money site : 3866
    and rest of the links are my cpa offers on the content locker

    3)MY EARNINGS

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    TOATL EARNED SO FAR = 15.90 + 37.19 = 53.09
    IN TODAY 9 DAYS .. Nothing compared to what i expected :(

    I m noticing that lot of peoples are applying the same method as my .as i have seen their comments and videos. i just hope that youtube doesnt quickly take any action to make this impossible :)


    My Plans :

    AS my own content locker is not proving very efficient and its taking a lot of time to manage. i m going to take loan from a friend and buy content locker CLPro soon

    ALso planning to buy 10-20 private proxies to avoid quick bann from youtube.



    Please give me some advise and suggestions :)

    using private proxies & use them for YT will be good. also try to buy some likes & comments for your YT videos, you know the best place for that(fiverr) also try to increase your views. in that manner you will gain more leads.

    keep update daily. really happy about your attempts. Don't give up.
    Good luck bro

    Cheers :chef2:

    I read some of your post with a lot of interest!

    what i like best is your tenacity and the will to keep trying. Honestly i dont know why i followed several of your posts after reading one of them. even a pro can sometimes use some enthusiasm

    carry on this way and i am sure you'll be 100x better than a lot of people around here... who read but dont do anything about it. or are not willing to stick it out.

    A++

    Thanks + Rep given :)
