    Hey guys,

    I currently have a music blog I'm working on. It's targetting a realitvely niche genre, and the keyword I am targetting is 8,100 global exact searches and very low competition on market samurai.

    Currently, my process is:


    • Find new songs in genre
    • Download songs, add my splash image, upload to my youtube channel
    • Bit of description and link to my music blog ("Download this here: www.xxx.xxx")
    • Music blog has all the youtube videos on, and keyword dense articles about the genre, and reviews of products related to genre. All targetting my keyword ofcourse. (going to start making articles for related keywords soon)
    I currently don't actually have any download links of the songs on my site as I dont want to get kicked from my networks. Is the best thing just to add a content locker on homepage? Or will this just put people off?


    I was going to add download links for the songs, which leads to a passworded rar file, with the password on a content locked page?But just put a dummy file and text file in the rar telling them where they can pirate the song from?

    Just looking for some advice. I know that when I rank this bog I will be able to pull in some nice traffic, just need to find out how to cash in on it.


    Any guidance greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: obviously the down side of not actually having the song in the download is people will be unlikely to return to site.

    upload newest songs to websites like filejungle - it's pay per download website (no surveys included per download link). then post your upload link to your website,so people could get newest song for free.if you have a huge traffic,you would earn some.
    Just a little idea,twist your own way.
    Hope it helps

    example: dailytunez. they are using hulkshare

    I don't know what kind of music videos you are using. But try this affiliate music program
    With my aff id: Here
    Withouth ref: Here
    Publishes music albums monthly and conversion rate is high.
    Offers free gifts to visitors. Really cool.
    If visitors choose to buy each month or just any of the time, you'll get paid plus it's 2 tier. You also get paid for sales made by refs under you.

    Try with various offers, affiliates, one that has free offers/gifts to entice visitors.
