    Hey,

    Does anyone knows www.oneclickmoviez.com?

    I want to create a site like that but only difference is that I would be linking to the torrents of the movies stored on another site like www.thepiratebay.se or www.kickasstorrents.com.

    Is there anything legal I should know? Could I get in bad trouble?

    I mean I'm not hosting anything at all, I'm just gonna redirect to the files that's stored on another site which isn't mine.

    With the site I would add some pop ups, so I can get some money from it.

    Thanks,
    Sedoc94

    Nope, I've done that in the past(had a similar idea)..But I did not really profit much infact practically nothing as sites like piratebay are way too popular what's the point?

    The point is making some money, as I would really do some serious SEO work on it.

    If I can get 5000 visits a day, I would consider it a succesful site, especially if it's going to pay for itself.

    It's not even really about money, it's also about me scripting and managing my own website for the first time.

    definitely better ways to make some money if you are going to put serious seo into it -as far as legal matters you are safe as long as you stay small but once you grow large it doesn't matter if you are breaking any laws or not - they will come after you
