I've been thinking about building a website that isn't in the affiliate space for a while. My affiliate websites have been successful (mostly) but I wanted a change. I have also started learning programming as a hobby in my spare time. So I decided to combine the two for a potentially fun side project.

Why a movie streaming website?

I've been self-teaching Python. Bots and automation specifically. I initially became interested in the idea of automating some of my daily SEO tasks so I can spend more time away from the computer and enjoy life a little more. This coincided with niche research I was doing. I stumbled upon a few movie streaming websites that had almost no backlinks, yet they're getting millions of visitors a month. This made me curious.

I decided to build a bot that would completely automate the process of scraping movies and submitting them to a movie streaming website. Once the bot was built, there would be very little work to do.

What's the plan?

Code the bot in Python. Scrape IMDB for movies titles. Once my bot has a huge list of movie titles and IDs, scrape download links. Download the movies and upload to Openload. Create a few mirrors for each movie. Then submit these movies to a Wordpress site. Once completed, I will let the site age a little before off-page SEO. I hope to piggyback traffic from popular sites like 123movies, putlocker , gomovies etc. I might use Reddit, Facebook and Youtube to promote the site - but only if I can automate it.

What I've done so far

  • The bot is almost finished. I've enjoyed making it and it has been challenging!
  • Bought an offshore VPS for $10
  • Registered a domain for $10
I'm currently looking for a wordpress theme.

I'm well aware of the risks involved in this niche. I don't plan on letting my site get too big. I see this as an opportunity to test my programming and potentially create an automated revenue stream. If I shut it down because of pressure or if it simply doesn't generate money, I'm not bothered!
 
Hi i'm so interested in working in streaming websites, i have some beautiful wordpress templates that i can give to you to work with.
 
Many are already doing movie streaming sites how will you upload all the movies, by yourself?

My bot will automate this process. Upload to openload through FTP.

I have a Dooplay license that I’m not currently using if you’re interested (I’m not offering to sell it to you, you can take it for free to test your website before getting a license yourself)

Thanks man. I have PM'd you.

hello i'm working on a movie streaming website too, your bot will atomate the process to add the movies to wordpress too ? if that is correct, are you selling your bot too ? or is just for your personal use?

thanks in advance for the info.
 
Good Luck!
How do you plan to monetize the traffic you will get to your website? what is your revenue goal?
 
Good luck, I wouldn't recommend WordPress because it consume too much server resources especially if you start getting 100.000+ daily visitors.
