    If I had a niche involving downloading free software (not porn or virus) I was wondering what the best way to monetize that would be?

    I've attempted some of the survey-to-download websites, but they're bullshit and no one does them. I got plenty of clicks, but no downloads.

    Are there websites that just pay for users to click download? I don't think many people will be buying premium accounts to downloads, which is another option to monetize downloads.

    Thanks in advance

    Try to put a local content locker on your download pages.

    Hi,

    There are a download sites that pay per 1000 downloads, which don't have surveys. The rates are fairly low, but better than ****** ect...

    Here is a list of sites that pay per download:

    if you have lots of clicks and users want downloads then surveys should work
