    Ok, so in one of my file hosting accounts every month (depositfiles) I see a few guys who are making crazy $$$ in a very short period of time off of downloads.
    (Take a look at the attachment)

    I'm wondering :

    1) Are these just bullshit stats created by the company itself???

    2) Outsourcing of some kind?

    Anyone know :confused:

    HOW THE HELL ARE THESE GUYS DOING THIS?

    Well that's a guess, but maybe some guys with some well ranked TV Shows websites offering direct download for last shows each week.

    those stats are for real
    it can be done with auto-posting bots, a large network where you post your links and an insane amount of post
    i guess depositfiles is not banned from anywhere (not like sharecash), just imagine: you can post your links literally anywhere on the net (adult forums, imageboards, warez forums, 0day warez sites)

    Those figures are kind of despressing if thats the best they can do. 4k? I dont call that a crazy amount of money. 44k or 400k or something is crazy amounts. But 4k well ill stay in my own niche any day.

    yea, it's not a crazy amount, if you think about how much you can make if you use networks other than pay per download sites
    but it's a quite good amount, if you're only seeing the fact they're doing this with a pay per download site, because you can tell a rough estimate how much traffic they're sending towards their download links, if you know the rates of the pay per download sites
    are they wasting their traffic and leaving money on the table? most likely
    are they happy with this amount? i guess so...
    they're doing this because it's a very convenient way of earning good money (if you have the tools & sites) without the hassle of CPA networks, redirects, faking the referers, dmr, TOSs and such

    Ok perhaps, I may have gone a little overboard with the term 'crazy'
    But for the 'work' I would imagine that goes into this $4500 a month simply from distributing links on autopost i'm sure aint bad at all

    I used to do this with hotffile. I could make 10$ a day easy with just uploading 5 files. I wasn't targetting warez, but more adult clips. I have an auto bot that posts to over 250 forums that I collected. Now if you make multiple accounts and upload more, you could be making a lot. This is mostly semi automated too because I would use a server to download/upload at amazing speeds. I uploaded only 5 files a day because some places ban you for spamming too much

    automation of every possible step and throwing up tons and tons and tons of downloads and links. If your slurping down every movie, tv show and cd that comes out and reupping multiple times at very fast speeds then you will make tons of money.

    My best method is creating fake program and ringtones and then upload to youtube, metacafe... through tubemogul.
    I made consistenly over $20 every month with just 2 videos (then i stopped as problem with the site i worked with).
    If I would have spent a full month, four figures is doable.

    It's called mass marketing. Come on people, it's the basis of IM itself.

    How can we reach the most amount of customers? Post on many sites.
    What sites do we post to? Those that get a lot of traffic.
    What sites get a lot of traffic? Major video sites, authority forums, article directories.

    Use automated software if you have it, or sites like TubeMogul or hire someone to upload them manually.

    Is that a monthly stat? I earned bigger than those guys few months back with megavideo/megaupload before the point system was changed last february. I earned like 50k - 100k points a day (100k points = $100 + 1 year premium, 1000k points is = $1500 + lifetime premium)

    And everything is automated and I only use 2 websites to submit my links tvshack.net (now tvshack.cc) and surfthechannel.com
