    i just launched my site www.ebooked.org and am looking for ebook authors who want to make some passive whitehat income for years to come.

    the concept of the site is simple, you will give your ebooks away for free but not before the person who wants your ebook needs to complete a gateway survey or email submit. they get a free ebook, you get some cash, everyone wins.

    what do you need to get started? a affiliate account and at least one ebook that YOU ARE THE AUTHOR OF. this is a whitehat site/concept so don't go uploading the latest "gurus" ebooks cause i'll ban you.

    how do i make money? for every 5 people who want to download your ebook, 4 of them will be shown your gateway script, and 1 of them will be shown my gateway script. you can read more about it here: http://www.ebooked.org/ebook/page/6/e-book_publishers

    This site is brand new and just launched so right now there is only a demo ebook on the site (in case you wonder why the site looks a little empty)

    If you have any questions let me know.

    Nice and creative idea. This is totally considered as whitehat...

    I would be interested in this as well. Who is better, cpa lead or adscend media? Which one has the best paying offers and is less likely to shave?

    This is a very sharp idea... are you going to limit the type of ebooks you would accept?

    For instance, I have a nice ebook I wrote on using ezine in a black hat way to generate targeted traffic.

    I am using Adscend because they have email submits. A lot of the other company's offers are these long surveys, which might pay an extra $0.50 but I think you'll have a higher conversion rate with Adscend.

    You can put any type of ebook on there, I don't care if it is blackhat.

    I've been doing something just like this for some time. It's actually a project that I've been working on in public.

    Sorry about that, but captcha is made purposely harder. I know what happens to sites with easy captchas.

    It looks like you got everything set up, but I sent you a PM to confirm.

    Keep in mind the site is brand spanking new, so I've hired two people to work on backlink building, so it may take a little time for traffic to build. But ideally the 2 minutes you spent uploading your ebook will generate somewhere in between $XXX to $XX,XXX for you over the next year.

    Can't people just upload random ebooks found online? Even if they were not the creator?

    Yes they can. In that respect it is similar like Youtube, if someone uploads a copyrighted item then upon author request it will be removed. Can't really get around that. I'm trusting people to upload only their ebooks. If I find they uploaded an ebook that they don't have authority to distribute then I will ban their account. It's not perfect but the best that can be done.

    Thanks for comment, gateways are not 100% perfect, but 99.9% of internet users will not be using firefox AND using firebug.
