    Hello I am new to the forum and have found info and posts here very helpful. This is my first post and I don't know if this exact method has been covered or not but it has made me $100+ a day for the past few days that I have tried it and I'd like to share.

    This is a Youtube method with a little twist.

    For those of you that live in the US may know that there was a huge UFC heavyweight bout this past weekend, Brock Lesnar vs Randy Couture. I figured that there would be a lot of traffic searching for this video for free. I simply found a photo of Brock Lesnar during one of his fights and used Windows Movie Maker to watermark the image.

    I made the video about 2min long. The thumbnail showed the still image obviously so that people will think that it is the actual fight. The watermark read "View the full fight @ mywebsite.com" Of course in my info I had the my website link. It went something like this:

    hxxp://mywebsite.c0m visit link to view full fight of Brock Lesnar vs Randy Couture high quality.

    Title was Brock Lesnar vs Randy Couture FULL FIGHT

    OK now the tricky part on mywebsite.com I built a simple page with an image of a video player as if it was an embedded video. The title of the page was Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Couture FULL FIGHT. I put other info on the page to make it look legit like views: 4848 below the view image left different comments ex. Thanks for the full fight/ Brock is an animal etc. Just to add to the legit feel of the video page.

    Right above the video image and the are the words "Click video to play" The video image is actually a hyperlink to those in window popups. The popup has a message "Sorry you need to install this toolbar to view this video" the word toolbar is hyperlinked to my aff program. I get a couple bucks for every download. Do to the high volume of searches for the fight this has been working very well for me.

    Now you don't have to necessarily wait for big events for this to be profitable there are events every week. You could upload trailers of new movie releases and use the same method. Also you do not need to use a toolbar you could change the popup to read "Please submit your email here inorder to view video" or zipcode or whatever.

    Also to boost your conversions if you have youtube commenting capabilities comment your video with comments like Thanks for the video/Wow thank for the complete xxwhateverxx etc. People will jump on the bandwagon and increase your conversions.

    That may just work. I would love to see Fedor vs Brock but I know not to download the toolbar when I can't view the video :p

    I came across this when I was looking to see the Joe Calzaghe fight, quite annoying looking for it. But you could definitely link this with actually watching the fight if you can stream it. I had a site that streamed big sporting events either on cable, SKY or PPV - if I find it again i'll let ya'll know.

    Haha this method was actually sold at a certain Dumb People forum. It's a great method. Use it for other videos as well. full movies, tv episodes, etc.

    Glad you guys like it. Here's another addition to the method that I tried and worked well. I went to gamespot site viewed the new release section for PC games. Tomb Raider, Need for Speed, Left 4 Dead all broke this week for PC.

    Just download the game trailers watermark with link as above. You just need to modify the landing page a bit. Download the FULL VERSION of Left for Dead click here to download. Ofcourse leave fake encouraging comments and something like File uploaded by: Mr.X and This file has been downloaded: 99999 times.

    You know kids out there looking to view the trailer saving up their pennies to buy the newest game release will jump at the chance to download the game for free.

    AAaaaAAH I have 10 crackwhores and 3 children someone HELP ME PLEASE! :D

    Just out of curiosity how do you actually create your landing page? The page you set up to be the fake one? Is this easily done without any knowledge of web design?

    thanks

    This is some great info. A nice variation on an established method. I haven't come up with any great twists on existing methods like this yet, but when I do you can be sure I'll post them here. Thanks for this!

    Does YouTube remove videos like this eventually? Not that it matters because they probably get most of their traffic in the first week or two/when the "event" (in this case the fight) is hot news, but I'm just curious.

    Do you leave commenting enabled on the Youtube video, because wouldn't you think people would start blasting you in the comments saying how your link is a waste of time, bogus, don't bother clicking, etc. ??

    Do you auto-comment it for a page or 2 and then disable commenting? Can you do that even?

    I'm sure there's plenty of people who won't even read the comments and will just go straight to your link. But a lot of people do read 'em and if they're right below the video saying "Don't click this link - it's a scam!" then that might hurt your traffic big time.

    just curious...
