    Ok I will help you since I am doing the same Journey. First you need to choose whether you want to earn money on YT by commenting or by uploading and ranking videos. Each have there own advantages. I will list below the advantages of each.

    Mass Comment Spamming:

    - Easy to setup, just create a YT account and start manually commenting you link out on YT.
    - Instant traffic, no waiting around. As soon as you comment people will start going to your site. So you earn from Day 1.
    - Competition doesn't matter as the more competition the more videos you can comment on.
    - If you have the right niche then you can make $50-$100/day.
    - You can choose as many niches as you like, the more the merrier.
    - The method can be automated with a Mass Commenting bot like YT Commander.
    - There are many more advantages, but you probably get the idea :)

    Ranking Videos:

    - Ability to make more money than mass commenting. You can easily make $100+/day if you have the right niches and rank your videos well.
    - You can get even more traffic than mass commenting.
    - Relatively easy to set up. There are plenty of guides on how to rank YT Videos on this forum.
    - You can upload lots of videos. You can choose multiple niches.

    So you get the idea, both are good. But mass commenting is more for earning money straight away, whereas ranking videos takes more time to earn with but can be a lot more profitable. So choose which do you want more money now or more money later?

    Ok I will explain the basics of each method. Then you can do some research and find out even more information :)

    The idea behind the Mass Commenting method is you find a popular niche, find a niche where people want something. For example Game Beta Codes. People will complete a survey to get a Beta Code, plus there are plenty of new Xbox games. Next find videos that allow comments. Save them in a text file. Then start to type up a comment you think sounds legit. So say along the lines of:

    "Wow I got to try this game earlier and its awesome! I manage to play it earlier because I found a legit beta code. A site is giving away beta codes for free. You don't need to download anything, so no viruses! Also they work worldwide! I can't guarantee they will last much longer, so hurry up and get your beta code now from here: (Post your site link here)"

    I forgot to mention you need to create a site. It can just be some crappy landing page. I just threw one together with WordPress. It is a simple 2 page site. You can Google more on how to make sites with Wordpress. Just buy cheap hosting, I bought lifetime hosting from eBay for £2, LOL! It hasn't gone down once and its unlimited hosting!

    Also buy a cheap domain, wait for a GoDaddy discount code and get a domain for $0.99. It doesn't really have to be that much of a relevant domain, as people won't care what your site is called and you aren't trying to rank your site in Google.

    Just content lock a page on your site. You can use a content locker from your CPA Network if they give you one. If not try uLock.it :)

    Or you could buy a custom content locker like Mighty Content Locker or Content Locker Pro V2.

    At first I used AdWorkMedia's lockers then I switched MCL :)

    Once your site is set up just send the traffic over to your site, do this by what I have said above. Just comment on as many videos as possible, the more you comment on the more you will earn. Also try to spin the comment and try to use different accounts and different IP's when Mass Commenting, that way your comments will stick longer :)

    To get past YT now allowing links, I use special characters. Here is an example of what I mean:

    Most people post links like this in YT comments:

    www(dot)sitename(dot)com

    This is rubbish as people have to remove the brackets and add dots. Here is what I do:

    www.sitename.com

    Copy and Paste that in your web address bar and it will take you to a site without you having to remove anything :)

    With this Mass Commenting method you should earn straight away and you can start with no budget. Once you have earned money with this method you can begin to automate it. If you start this now I can promise you that you will earn money!

    Now moving onto the second method; Ranking Videos. This is more of a difficult task and sometimes requires an investment and a lot of time. Also videos can get removed by YT so you could end up starting again. But if you are still interested in this method then read on :)

    First you need to find a niche. Lets say we choose the Game Beta Key niche again. You will need to still have a site to do this method. Just show off your site in the video, make it about 2-3 mins long. Add voice narration if possible or just use YT music. Make the video HD. Then upload to YT. Make sure to optimize the description, title, tags, etc properly. So make sure it is all relevant to your niche. If you are unsure about how best to optimize then search this forum for guides or use your competitors for ideas :)

    Next you can either use a service like EhanceViews, Vagex or AddMeFast to get views, likes, subscriptions, favourites, etc.

    I just use Fiverr gigs for all of these. Just search Fiver for dripfeed views, likes, etc. Make sure its a dripfeed gig, this just means they spread the views out over a certain amount of time. This makes it look more natural.

    Now you can also look for YouTube SEO gigs, they will rank your video as if it was a site. This helps your video rank up in Google and YT :)

    Now just wait for the ranking to increase, just be patient. Try to upload 1-2 videos per niche. Also try to upload videos with aged YT accounts.

    If you have no start up money then go with the first method and use free hosting and and a free domain name. They are not hard to find, just search Google or on here again :)

    I hope I have helped you as much as possible, let me know if you need any more information. Also remember this; if you take action now you will be one step closer to success!

    Good Luck :D

    Yep I started out with a Weebly site. But I don't recommend using a blogging site like Weebly, as they don't allow Content Lockers. I got banned after 2 weeks for using a Content Locker and I had to start all over again.

    But yeah I don't see a problem with free hosting, just check that they allow content locking. Also make sure they allow your niche as well.

    why don't you provide some sort of a service (like article writing, graphic design, website design etc..) to make a few bucks so you can buy domain + hosting.

    Something that peaple want + Youtube Video + CPA/PPD + Domain + 1 Web Page + high retention views + enhanceviews = autopilot earnings

    Shouldn't take more than a day to set all that up and then your earnings depend on your chosen niche.

    Rinse and repeat with different niches.

    Nice! Now all you need to do is find some decent free hosting. This site offers free hosting, plus they are quite well known:

    http://www.000webhost.com/

    If you want very cheap hosting, go to eBay and type in Lifetime Hosting or Unlimited Hosting. It will come up with like $1-$5 hosting. They work pretty well and allow any sort of content. Plus its a one time payment :)

    Let me know if you need any more help with anything.

    Respect to TheMoneyWizard!

    Would like to jump in to this as well, couple of questions. How do you pick a niche? Do you use YT? Or you pick one according to your CPA network niche list?

    Hey guys, I'm quite confused. How do I get money from my own website with the mass commenting thing?

    Thanks :)

    I will give you a big clue on my niche, look for popular virtual items ;)

    I just pick any niche that I think is popular enough to get a decent about of traffic. Always find something people want, I prefer finding virtual items that people want as it is easier to convince people that you will give them this item at the end of a survey :)

    Sign up to a CPA Network. I recommend AdWorkMedia. They have their own content locker. You just choose what kind of offers you want the content locker to host, then get the content locker code and paste it into your sites code. AWM have their own WordPress plugin to simplify the process. Then just choose which page you want to content lock. Drive traffic to your site, the traffic then has to unlock the page by completing an offer. They will unlock the page if they really want the item you are offering :)


    Sorry for hijacking this thread OP.

    My favorite is is Mass uploading, I wish you all the best with this one. Make sure you got your own content locker right to scale up your income.

    Dakota, I have you hosted under my account. So, you're good on that side. You definitely need to check out that AWM content locker. I looked at it, and it will definitely make your life a lot easier. If you need some help shoot me a text. We both just started at this, so two minds are better than one.
