    Hey, so for anybody who hasn't read my post on the actual creation and planning process for creating this movie streaming platform, the thread can be found here:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/h...ly-automated-movie-streaming-platform.910579/

    The above thread covers pretty much everything I have planned. This journey thread will be me executing what I wrote in that thread in real-time.

    Many people messaged me to start a journey thread on this platform, and I decided it would be a good idea to not only gain a nice following, but also to be able to learn from my mistakes. I say it's good to rehash everything you've done for the day for your site, as it will allow one to figure out where they may be going wrong, or what may have caused something to go right. It is also good because you guys can learn from me and I can learn from anybody willing to offer suggestions. This may be a complete fail or a complete success - but there's only one way to find out, and that is to take action.

    So, here's my to-do list for what I want to do, and I will be going through the list slowly through the next upcoming weeks. By the end of the list, I should hit my goal swiftly.

    To-Do list:

    Configuration and Start-up Phase:

    1. Purchase VPS / Domain and load up all the custom website scripts and configure all apache/php settings.

    2. Execute scripts, and give them time to scrape the internet for movies and automatically find links and upload. Continue until 15k+ movies have been uploaded.

    3. Configure and optimize all monetization (adcash/adcenter/perinstallcash/social-locker).

    Getting Traffic Phase:

    4. Execute Youtube Commenting script to go through all videos on youtube related to movies in the site database

    5. Download mass youtube videos through a script by movie name, covering clips and trailers, and then reupload to 5 different youtube accounts, 5 videos a day with link in description to watch movie (this may end up terribly but doesn't hurt to try)

    6. Create 5 twitter accounts and set each account to automatically tweet a different movie link from the site at random, and automatically follow a certain # of people related in the movie niche

    7. Create Facebook account and new group and set account to automatically post a message regarding new movies being added to site at random

    8. Have same Facebook account automatically comment on other movie niche groups and paste links

    9. Manually comment on Movie Niche forums / IMDB forums / Submit to Indexing/Blogger sites

    10. Get a trusted backlinking service for long tail keywords for certain movies manually

    End Phase:

    11. Now, if we reach this phase, that means the website is now making at least $1k/month. Once this happens, I will simply purchase more long term keyword domains with decent exact searches in movie niche and copy/paste the database to other sites and simply start to scale up

    12. Now let's say this little movie streaming empire ends up making a decent recurring income - at this point, I want to move on to other things in Internet Marketing and don't want to be completely held up in movie niche. At this stage, I would simply sell all my sites to people who want the pre-configured sites/domains, and set up a service for people who want an automated solution and charge setup fees and then move on to other things.

    The whole purpose of this project is to learn as I go to try to market through automation, and learn cool tricks on my way there for seo, marketing, and programming. And simply gaining knowledge in what works and what doesn't when trying to gain traffic. If it doesn't work out, at the very least, I'll have learned a lot of things.

    Final comments regarding DMCA:

    Many people are concerned about it and cower in fear at the idea of getting a takedown request. I have a few people I know who deal with sites that would be the type to get DMCA takedowns. Honestly, it's not a big deal - as long as the site has a stance where it says that it would comply with DMCA if it truly came down to it, by offering a contact form and giving a clever disclaimer. If you decide to go completely off the grid with bitcoins / bitcoin mixers, VPN everything and offshore hosting - then you don't even have to worry about the complaints. I can choose to not worry because my offshore hosting service could care less about DMCA, but I will comply with all DMCA requests simply to relieve pressure. As for bitcoins - nah. A stealth paypal account will be my friend, and even if there is a money trail, it's fine as long as your site is acting within DMCA grey area. This is speaking from experience from other similar projects. If you want to be EXTRA safe though, bitcoins AND bitcoin mixers is the way to go. Many people get confused over bitcoins being anonymous - that's not true at all and I don't want to get technical about why it's not anonymous, but let's just say that every time you are transferring BTC, to always mix it afterwards using credible bitcoin mixer services.

    Thanks. As for going super stealth, it won't matter too much. I am acting within DMCA legal area even though my server is located outside of the United States completely just to be safe. Some sites like watchfree completely ignore DMCA. But some sites like hdmovieswatch follow DMCA protocol. It's a matter of what degree of blackhat do you really want to take it - and in my case, I'm allowing some breathing room for the law to remove a movie if requested.

    Nice, I read your thread about the plan, very cool for me at least. $10K a month for me is like a dream, to tell the truth, if a site no need to touch when all set, even $1K a month is damn cool, I wish I can own such sites, good luck to your journey!

    How the hell did you get php to look for movies ?

    Are you useing a archive that already got movies on ,and updating a database and moving them to there own place to rest.

    But how are you getting the movie title to no what the movie is , surly not just by the saved file name , how you doing that part very intresting .....

    Wikipedia has a large list of movies page by alphabet, I scrape each page, and then the scraper goes to IMDB and searches for each movie by name which was taken from Wikipedia - then I get all the info I need on the movie. As for the actual scraping of links for movies, I just scrape from big movie sites using clever gimmicky html/javascript to navigate their sites easy. It then downloads all their videos and uploads in my own affiliates like Openload, etc.

    How do you no where the movie are to link to????

    I love the way you think, you scrape the moves of other big movie websites and download them to your space....

    That must be some clever code mate with javascript html and php all going at once ...

    Just a lot of scraping :)
    If you were to run my script on only one console, it would add movies slowly, like 700-1000 movies an hour depending on various factors. That's why I have several consoles open running the same script, for multi-threading purposes.

    The beauty of this is once its scraped, I can just save database instance so I don't have to scrape again. The only time I'd have to scrape again is to include latest movies from time to time, and that would be very fast since it would have completed most movies that are in database already.

    Well, this can be done with any server-side web programming language/framework. Just a lot of internet research.

    Yeah. Thing is, I don't want my movie streaming sites to get TOO big. I want it to get big enough to sell or at least give me a decent monthly income. But I don't want to be making something like $100k/month from this for example - I'd rather do something more organic and less expendable. But I want to make a decent income with this while being on the down-low. But also use it as a capital for future projects.

    I 100% agree with you, here the OP is a very very clever man have to say, what he just done here just like rocket science to most people IMH, its not that easy as he told, its needs a ton of hours and nights to learn, so just respect and nothing we can replicate, sadly to say.

    Hope OP can set up a such site for me when all things got smoothly in the end, I will pay for sure, if site can earn $100 on autopilot, that would be a dream.
