    And are CPA offers the only way to monetize?

    I have heard of a few people *locking* the files so they cant use them until they complete a cpa offer. Other then that im not sure how you could force them to do anything that would make you money. You just have to be careful as not to get caught ;-).

    3 USD from one person is good, if you make to do the same 100 persons you'll get 300 USD ;)

    Yeah. You take a program lots of people want, (this works even better when there's no existing crack) you make a folder called "crack" in the torrent, people download it, they open the folder and find a .txt saying "go to *** [tinyURL] for the crack"
    People follow the link, get on a sharecash for the fake crack, et voila.

    Yeah, maybe a few years ago, now it's pretty tough to make some decent money with torrents, I would focus myself on other thinks that can make you money faster and easier, and there's plenty.

    I think torrent sites are specifically for people who don't want to buy anything?

    Don't give up on torrents. It's a goldmine! You just have to think a little out-of-the-box to make it work wonders...

    I have seen several attempts to make money with torrents but they all seem to be very childish. So much so that they would not work at all.

    i would have to imagine that there are a lot of other places that people can get the software these days. It seems like everyone is handing out invites to private sites nowadays.

    I tried and failed. Found another method, never went back to trying torrents.

    In the past 2 years I have probably made almost $20,000 + from torrents with my best days being around $120 a day.

    Sadly now that has shot down to around $20/day and with the recent changes pbay have made (cannot get torrents to stick longer than an hour or so) I have found myself moving onto different things.

    With that being said there is still plenty of money to be made from torrents, just gotta think outside the box.

    Think out of the box in terms of what? Explain this to a total beginner, how do you monetize torrents?
