    Hey guys this is just an idea and it could become autopilot.

    On Demonoid there is a user called 'Safcuk009' you've most likely heard of him, I believe he is on other torrent websites aswell, he uploads a lot of new torrents every single day, mostly good cams or dvdrips, 'Going to assume he does this on a lot of sites,' well ' Safcuk009.com ' is available, and he is quite well known, this being said...

    Maybe you could create the domain and put hosting on it and then base the site off him with all his latest uploads from all sites like maybe get an 'rss feed?' I don't actually know, just some how manage to get his new uploads every single day real time and it would update on your site, now the problem is, some sites require you to register or be signed up to actually download the file, well you could have an automatic program which would already have downloaded the new uploaded torrent and save the .torrent file, so when the user downloads it they can get it off the Safcuk009.com site instead of registering or signing into the other one.

    I don't know how you would monetize this and it's just an idea, it just seems like you would get genuine traffic off someone who is quite popular in the torrent industry.

    Advantages: Not everyone can get invited or can register on the private torrent sites since they're either closed or invites only.

    Disadvantages: Safcuk009 might change his name or just stop uploading (although he has a good reputation using that name)

    Searched in google "Safcuk009" and it come up with About 5,360,000 results (0.18 seconds).


    straight from the google adwords keyword tool, don't know how accurate this is, but whatever.

    Keyword - Safcuk009
    Global Monthly Searches - 6,600
    Local Monthly Searchs - 390
    Competition: was literally like 0.

    Let me know if you think this is a good idea or a terrible idea :(

    It's a creative idea, go for it, monetize it with CPA or content lockers. Getting the traffic is the tricky part.

    Thanks for your reply, I know absolutely nothing about coding for sites or doing what I said but I know it's possible, why I have posted it hoping someone would either help or just take it up for thereselves, this is a forum for giving I guess :)

    Hope more people have an input in this, even if it is just to criticize the idea.

    Thanks, but i'm just looking for advice or a thumbs up just for now and never know someone might just take up the domain knowing it was a good idea (maybe).

    Certain ways you could monetize it: You could have a gateway lock once a month allowing members to be able to visit the site for a month until another survey pops up or something. Once they complete a survey they're allowed to browse the site for a month.

    Nah, it could work, just whip up a nice looking automated site that scrapes that user's torrents and posts them. Then, get yourself ranking in search engines. It could definitely work.

    How would I go by making money with it though? Do any other sites do this kind of thing, obviously they wouldn't target one person, they would target big private torrent sites etc.

    Slap ads on there for some trickle income, I would also do a 1/5 random "offer page" on downloads where you do your monetization (let your mind run wild!) with a nice tiny "skip" button.

    Or, even better - I may actually do this: look at what Download.com is doing here to monetize the download: http://download.cnet.com/Trillian/3000-2150_4-10047473.html?tag=mncol;1

    (I have tons of ideas but probably shouldn't go ahead and give them away)

    This HAS been done before with aXXo, who is (was?) one of the most prolific DVD-rippers - that was monetized by charging naive users for access.

    Thanks for replying to my thread Freelapse

    Good monetizing methods, I can't bring myself to purchasing the domain though as I know absolutely nothing about SEO or anything domain related :(.
