    I'm currently doing YT+PPD with set and forget method. Meaning...

    Create HQ videos for Hacks/Keygens, optimize them with targeting Keywords in Title, description and tags. Boosting videos with 50 views from Vagex, 10-15 likes & Favorites then just leave it to the rest.

    Do you think this method is still alive as this is 2015 and lots of old methods won't work anymore.....

    Its possible but with all the flag bots and stuff your better off making a website and ranking it in my opinion.

    Most PPD niches are easy to rank and should only take 1 month

    I have no automated tools like GSA and other IM toys to rank the sites. I'm afraid it would take ages to compete with other sites doing manual link building while they just spam 1000's backlinks to their churn and burn sites.

    I'd be interested to hear more about the whole idea of ranking in these PPD niches. Having been in the movie niche for a number of years it used to be quite easy to rank for some of the search queries used back in the day. These days though - there effectively IS NO NICHE for that. According to google there are essentially a very small handful of legitimate sites (LOL) 3-5 to be exact major players in the niche, and even they don't rank at the top on page 1 of google. What ranks there is a mix of the most recent garbage that's been added via GSA, link pyramids, craigslist, or whatever popular "footprint" is working that day.

    Isn't it exactly the same in these other niches? Hasn't google relegated the world of kids trying to pirate crap online to the least important part of their day? How exactly does one rank a site in a niche Google doesn't believe exists? Or perhaps you can at least show me a "hack" niche where Google says there is actually a player - someone who consistently ranks at the top day after day - Preferably someone who isn't doing it with GSA Ser, or Zennoposter. Frankly I'm convinced that is about all that is actually working in these niches at this time, and that includes YT - F Big G - she is a real beeyatch!

    I'm pretty sure it still works but only for some niches

    I'm sure set and forget will still work, but obviously would no where be nearly as effective as the other methods that you can use. If you don't have money to do automated SEO you can do it manually or purchase something off the BST!

    The method still works, I made $130 doing it. Granted it did take time for my videos to rank (some won't rank) and establish a routine of

    - creating 50-100 youtube accounts at a time
    - setting up a landing page
    - creating and uploading the video with links

    The problem is it takes time finding good niches that generate money. A lot of imagination is required. Also, go for white/grey niches that don't necessarily violate YT's policies. This ensures your videos won't be removed.

    There are plenty other factors that have to be looked at but most importantly patience is the number one thing. You have to be willing to wait a few months for your first download because it takes time to build up a solid network of videos.

    I have about 400 videos up and made $130, I'm sure you can do better if you do better niche research but it is a long process that you need to commit to fully maximize earnings.

    Lastly: Use your own domain for files! Never link to CPA/PPD sites as those URLs are blacklisted and will most certainly get your videos removed. Best of luck.

    The Hack and Crack niches are very saturated, try using a less popular method by making eBooks with longtail keywords and either lock them or put an optin page to have people access them.
