    Hey guys,
    I searched on Google for GTA 5 Beta, and clicked on the top ranked website [can't post links yet just search yourself].
    This is a PERFECT website to study for Blackhat marketing. It's obviously fake however it is really convincing.
    Whoever made it threw some screenshots together and made it look somewhat legit and then ranked it on Google.
    This could be a really good niche... creating a "beta download" website and having users fill out a survey or some other CPA.
    Any thoughts? Anyone have any experience with something along these lines?
    Good luck and keep it blackhat!

    another way u could monetise this is by creating YT vids of upcoming games....u basically print out the game cover like lets say its for xbox...u print the cover then take out the cover of an old game from the plastic case....then put in the one u downloaded from like IGN...u then post on YT that u work at like EA and u got it early or it got leaked...some mumbo jumbo like that...after that make some YT vids showing guys ur giving it away or some shit like that...slap some cpa offers or something like that on the give away site and ul definately get some good mullah:cool:

    LOL easier to monetize to rank and then point to a machinima of you for that game. Now I know I won't be searching Google anytime soon for information on any upcoming games.

    Yes, it is really convincing, but it's not easy for newbie to make site like this one.
    Furthermore the fact,that there isn't any beta game make people angry and in future they will probably avoid those sites especially with survey, so it's shortterm strategy.

    No offers were available in my area, so I just ripped the content locker off the site with Chrome's element inspector.

    Clicking around doesn't get me any downloads. Not that I was expecting an actual GTA V beta or anything like that...

    But what do people get once they've completed an offer??

    Of course it is a good niche, not just upcoming video games, Movies are much likely the same.

    I used to do that for new games on yt. The danger is, the closer to release date you get the companies go a bit mad and start taking down your vids with copyright bans.

    You can definitely make money with this, but it won't make you a millionaire.

    Niche idea? Its common sense. All new releases whether it be games, books, movies, songs can be used to make money but there are already thousands of people who do this, its pointless unless you get in extremely early for instance you mentioned GTA 5 soon as Rockstar announced they were making a new game you can guarantee someone did something along these lines.

    Nothing. Its called fake content and it is not allowed by most CPA networks. Also its killing the content locking as a method, becaus the victims will not complete an offer ever again.
