    Let me start off by saying this is nothing new. This method is probably well known, I'm just giving my spin on it.

    So I started a 9gag type of site in Wordpress last week. I set it up in such a way that almost everything is automated. This isn't the topic of this thread but here's a brief overview of what I did.

    • Installed Automatic Featured Image Posts so that every image I upload is automatically made into a post. There's a setting in the plugin to make all posts into drafts. This important for the next plugin:
    • Drafts Scheduler - Automatically publishes your drafts at a predefined time, 1 every hour for example. Very useful.
    • Next I installed NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster to automatically post to my Twitter and Facebook pages every time a new post is published. See what I'm doing here. Automation for days.

    Anyways, that's how I set up the site. Now other than Facebook and Twitter, I needed other forms of traffic. Where did I look? Reddit of course.

    The problem with Reddit is that if you aren't a Grand Wizard VIP, you can only post once every age. This can be solved fairly easily though using any one of a couple different methods. The first is to use an account creator like Account Creator Extreme, or you can use TOR. For the sake of simplicity, I chose the latter.

    I simply started my TOR, made a Reddit account and posted the link to the post my image was on. Give it a stupid name like "I hate when this happens". Whatever, just make sure you post in the correct section otherwise you will be shunned for days. And that's basically it. Refresh your TOR and start again! I posted a grand total of 2 images today and 2 yesterday and I've gotten 300+ UVs from Reddit per day.

    Feel free to improve on this method, or not be lazy like me and post more than 2 images per day, your traffic is pretty much endless if you have enough good pictures to post.

    Guess everyone is busy implementing it. Is red dit under DDoS yet? :p

    On a serious note, cant imagine the amount of traffic it will get if the whole process can be automated (refreshing tor + posting). Maybe an imacros script?

    It's only been a few days dude. I haven't even bothered to check yet.

    Well there is this: http://www.blackhattoolz.com/redditbot.php
    Problem is I don't want to spend $50 on a bot for such a simple process. Not right now at least ^^ So when I have time I may just put some kind of iMacro together :)

    a big facebook page would help too.

    Is there any plugins that make each picture have its own attachment page? this will increase earnings.

    I'm in the process of building a FB page too dude, I may buy a couple big ones in the future but for now Reddit is a nice source of huge traffic with minimal effort.

    And if I understand your question correctly, Automatic Featured Image Posts does exactly that. It makes a new post for each picture that's been uploaded.

    I don't know. I've been doing them amongst multiple accounts, and I have only posted 4 links so I guess I'll see.

    Hey buddy, thanks for trying to contribute to the community and creating some value for all of us - but here is the thing, this method is so often used and far better twisted than yours (look for example at "Reinsteckers" exact same method but way more twists) so it's kinda feeling like a lazy rip-off (no offense) next time try to make it with more love and personal flavor (like own twists/ideas)

    Just my opinion don't want to be rude but I think I got a point here

    monetising will be the hard part when you have the traffic.

    Treeofl1, Will the featured image plugin allow me to post several images in one post, then when each image is clicked the user should be taken to another page with that image on it (an attachment page).

    Not without some hacking dude. The way I have it set up is so that one image is attached to one post. All the posts are displayed on the homepage and when the title is clicked, it goes to the actual post where the user can comment etc, like 9gag.

    Quick Questions, What Are The Most Type of Images Liked?
    I Think Humor Has been More Than Saturated, All The Pages have the same Jokes and Memes.
    Any Other type recommended?

    Thank you for the Great Share OP

    I used images from here: [GET] Massive Share! - Over 18,000 Viral/Funny/Meme Images
    I actually haven't seen a lot of them around the internet, so I think most of them are still fairly good to share.

    The sky is the limit though dude, you could always make your own inspirational posts or whatever you like I guess. If you feel like going through Tumblr or Pinterest you could try hairstyles or recipes or something like that I suppose.
