    The method is a "set and forget" once completed. It involves some research and moderate patience in the movie site niche.

    *Warning* This is a blackhat method, and I do not guarantee that your CPA account will not be banned. I take no responsibility for your actions. This method is purely for educational purposes.


    Requirements:
    Hosting
    A new domain
    CPA Account
    Cakeslice (Standalone version works fine)
    Time
    SEO (The amount of SEO depends on the size of your new competitor)

    The process:

    1. Research movie sites that DO NOT hold rights to the movies listed on their site that has medium traffic. You can tell that they do not hold rights by checking out their footer text, it will say something along these lines "moviesitenamehere.com provides links to other sites on the internet and doesn't host any files itself"

    2. Buy a domain that is very closely related to theirs (or a typo domain)

    2a. For Example, you find "MovieSite.com" that you want to take traffic from, so buy a domain like "Movie-site.com" "MovieSiteX.com" "MovieSite1.com" "Movie-Sites.com". I've noticed it doesn't hurt to add X,Y,1,-,S in the domain.

    3. Once your domain is purchased, set up a movie site script, which are piss easy to find online via nulled script sites.

    4. Your script will usually have preloaded images for movie files, even though the movie files are NOT hosted on your server. So, that being said, on the home page of your new movie site script, when a movie thumbnail is clicked, it will go to a 404 page. (Will explain how you will monetize the 404 traffic.)

    5. Create an html page on your server in your movie sites root, call it "confirm.htm"

    6. Now, go to your favorite CPA network and choose a good Email submit offer (Preferably in the movie niche, or media niche, so hopefully some of it will convert for the advertisers, lol)

    7. Now, take your offers URL, open up cakeslice, and iframe ONLY the email field and the submit button.

    8. Now go back to the file you created on your server "confirm.htm", you should already have your cakeslice code, and your confirm.htm file should look something like this (After you've added YOUR cakeslice code):

    Code:
    <br />
    <br />
    <br />
    <b><center>Submit your email address below and press enter to unlock this movie. Helps prevent server overload.</b>
    <div style="overflow: hidden; width: 325px; height: 50px; position: relative;" id="i_div">
    <iframe name="i_frame" src="[B]Your affiliate URL will be here[/B]" style="border: 0pt none ; left: -600px; top: -233px; position: absolute; width: 1600px; height: 576px;" scrolling="no"></iframe></div></center>
    *This is obviously a super simple page, and can be worked up nicer ultimately meaning higher conversions, but this is for demonstration purposes only*


    **IMPORTANT NOTE: After you've gotten your cakeslice code, replace your affiliate URL with a shortened No-referer URL from hxxp://referer.us, so if affiliate managers ask, you can say it was email traffic and you were using 3rd party tracking. **

    9. Now that you have your movie script set up, you are going to want to redirect your 404 traffic to your "confirm.htm" page where your visitors will submit their email via your Cakeslice iframe'd offer. To do this, you will need to edit your .htaccess file, here is the code that you must insert into your .htaccess file. Change the URL to yours obviously.

    Code:
    ErrorDocument 404 http://www.your-URL-here.com/confirm.htm
    
    10. On site SEO - Simple, copy your competitors Title, description, and keywords. If they have their URL in any of those, just change it to yours.

    11. Off site SEO - Doesn't take much if you target a medium sized movie site you want to compete with. 100-400 quality backlinks from some decent AA lists should do it. (Maybe less depending)

    12. On the footer of your movie script, don't forget to add a disclaimer for legal reasons, put in small font:

    Code:
    Your-MovieSite-URL.com does not actually host videos, nor links to 3rd party sites. It's purely for display
    Or something along those lines.


    As far as my personal experience with this method, I do not use well known CPA networks, I stick with the smaller ones.
    It was actually an accident when falling into this method, didn't intend for it to play out this way, but now I just let those sites sit there and collect cash.

    I have yet to be banned from any of the CPA networks involved, though I'm sure the conversions are low for the advertisers, it hasn't stopped 6+ months of being paid while using this method. (Again, not guaranteeing you won't be banned)

    Don't forget to switch up your email submit every so often.


    I am almost certain I was vague on a few things, or left something out, so if you have any questions, just post them here and I'll try my best to get to them. I wrote this extremely quickly, so it's a little sloppy.

    You could use wordpress and just have your thumbnails or links direct to your confirm.htm page on your server.

    This method can be used for a lot of different niches, could also be content locked, but I've not had much success with it.

    Will this actually work nowadays? Most people use icefilms which has full-length movies and don't require any surveys, also totally free. People even advertise it on twitt3r.

    So: would people finish your e-mail submit to potentially watch a free movie, knowing that there's another site who gives them that opportunity for free without having to do anything?

    I'm not bashing your method, I'm just curious wheter or not you can really compete with free sites that have 100k+ active links to all movies and tv-shows ever made.

    It's hard to dumb it down and explain in simplistic terms.

    Basically you're pretending to be another site via a typo domain. Getting their traffic via typo, and ranking for their similar keywords. These sites will obviously not be HUGE movie sites as that would take a lot more work to rank.

    It's really a simple concept. You're just getting a little chunk of some other sites traffic.

    have you tried referer.us "Referrer spoofer" inside a frame? I know the hiding referrer works but I have this doubt.

    I have not tried spoofing the referrer. Never had to.

    As long as it's blanked, you should be fine.

    Make sure to talk to your AM and feed them bullshit that it's a list you're mailing the offer to, and using 3rd party tracking.

    Super easy.
