    Requires massive online storage, very costly, too crowded niche, established names get all the traffic, etc....just some of the reasons nobody's creating download sites anymore.

    while you can just hide the download location crowded is a reson you will get no traffic. Although i have seen sites flipping at $3000 easily. Dunno how these guys ramp up so much traffic and adsense clicks.

    Storage Space + B/W = High Operational Costs.

    If the traffic drops then so does the service.

    It is a highly competitive niche that requires large start up cost with hosting and is typically a target for copyright infringement charges.
