    Hi all,

    I know from my own experience that sites like Softonic, Softpedia, Soft32 or CNET (i´ve worked at one of them) are making millions each year from Adsense just by offering software downloads, thousands each day. I would like to launch a similar website based on some scripts like Esoftscript or Pad Site Scripts, but i´m afraid that Google hardly will rank my website because all the content is identical with the one from other sites that use the same scripts. I also have some original ideas to give the site my own touch but i´m not a developer and i guess a developer will ask me lots of money to put my ideas on practice.

    So my question is, do you think it´s possible to have any success launching a new software downloads website based on Esoftscript or any other script in the Era of the App Stores? Softonic and CNET are ranked in the first places like for all possible apps when you want to download them through Google, and I guess that it would be pretty hard to be ranked even on the second page. That´s why I wanted to hear what you guys think. Also, is there any other script or cmd better tha Esoftscript?

    I appreciate all the answers.

    Who cares if its identical apps, the descriptions will be different, no?
    Spin them or hire someone to rewrite them.
    Plan to have a good antivirus spidering your database as well.

    Bundle your downloader with toolbars.

    Well i don't think you will be able to make it. Its way hard to make competition to those sites you already mentioned. But you can always try i would love to see your progress and i bookmarked this thread.

    Seems as a nice idea and may be work. Just if you set the paid programs and licenced and cracked versions that might not work.
