    Hi,

    Got some time on my hands and will take any help i can get as i post here. Been trying to make money online for 6months with little success as i bounce around. I started off with Adsense sites and seen some sandboxed and got ranked for a couple but they were for micro sites and only making a couple dollars a month which considering the 100hrs i put in was a crap return but hey, i learned and could probably teach someone else about it since those who can't do teach :)

    Only success i had was with content locking movie site so i'm sticking with that and trying PPD as well for games and anything else i find. I find the whole getting a niche thing mystical and i think the terminology still puts me off all this time later when i should just be thinking, i bet someone would like some advice on how to make some money and content lock that.

    I've a move to the states in 18months to help fund so anything i raise is a bonus with the added caveat that i dont spend all time online and wasting time with my young family. I'm not a poor guy by any means but having tried to spend to make money early on and getting burned cause i had no idea what i was doing then i think i'd rather only play with hard earned money i make to date.

    I'm a couple bucks short of a payout from MGCASH so that would take me to $125 as i've spent the rest and then i want to get to about $500 a month in next 6months. Would be nice to have a wage until i find a job stateside.

    Currently i promote on youtube, manually create accounts over proxies i buy and upload 5 videos. Boost these a little and then some more with usual exchange sites u2bviews,enhanceviews and vagex.

    I only got back into this last week really so 1 account a night is it and did 3 today with 15HD videos i make with movie maker.

    To date the posts were content locked and trying whole site tonight for 48hrs to see what happens. I finally found a animated gif of a media player loading which is going to be the next step. Think i get about 100 real people a day to the site right now but only like 10 click and the odd conversion with mgcash.

    PPD thing is just going to be a blogger page with header of the game, image of the game, some fake stats and a download button to link locker, see how that goes.

    Think the idea with the above two is if they make money, document it and outsource it as everyone loves to scale.

    Quick Question : Any good software for checking stats on videos other than MVB where i could import list of URLs for youtube and get a snapshot to see if they are even still up/online?

    I've a computer science degree but haven't been involved with coding much of last 8yrs apart from databases so rusty but apart from automating this based on excel or something, wouldn't know where to start.

    I also have a couple of clickbank affiliate sites in hot markets but never made any money there yet despite 1000 odd clicks to the product, broke my spirit so haven't looked at them in months. Played around with youtube comments to get visitors there, might do something on pinterest but thats down the line.

    Sorry for the rant !!

    Spent about 2 hours tonight making 10 new videos for top movies and upcoming ones, adding posts to my website and then making 2 accounts. Tried one of the accounts on a public proxy which was ok but wasted bit of time as could only do 1 movie at a time. Took the extra time to comment on the big trailers, then with second account replied with URL.

    Got about 100 visitors, 24 clicks and 3 conversions today $2.95 so only $3 for payout.

    Hope i can build some momentum but i'm not stupid, know its the weekend.

    Think i'm going to use tubenoia to check what videos stay up. Pain to track things, know most people say screw that and just move on but i'm trying to find a good formula.

    it is a good thing to do when you are beginning but after a few weeks you will have hundreds of vids and it will be impossible.... by the way: congrats for your earnings for today!!! you will have days with 0 but don't give up and you will succeed!

    Boosted Top 6 referral videos for the site with more views and comments. ( One video has grown to 30k views since i started it 2months ago, can't believe it still up and running so flooded it with likes and comments to counteract the bad ones. Created the account on a VPS i had rented for a month for $10 but let expire so cant remove comments from the vid)

    Created 10 more unique vids and manually boosted these vids over 2 new PVA accounts.
    Added views to all to get them over 300 a few comments each.

    Added 5 more posts on the website for new/top movies

    Washed the car , oh wait, that was before i started all this.

    Think that took about 90mins to do as i was manually commenting with the new accounts and subscribing to videos as well messing around. Managed to get 10people to my CPA site through comments since yesterday, thats a 500% increase lol. Onwards and upwards.

    I'm thinking about starting a group for the Internet Marketers that are under 18, seeing how many teens are starting up with Internet Marketing, and how many want to, it could turn out to be a good resource for us younger IMer's

    LOL , maybe my header was a bit mystic but i'm 31.

    Sort of taking the piss on the number of teenagers who make more than me. Hoping to build up a starting roll for other things as i'm sure motivation will drop after a few mass youtube bans.

    Don't give them a reason to ban you then. Keep your head high and you'll succeed, if us younger people can do it, I'm sure you can too!

    Ok, yesterday i got nothing done as i had to babysit ( can you call it that when its your own son ) and then catch up on the day job until midnight, IM was bottom of the list.

    Tonight was better and bit of grunt work was done. Got list of about 30 new movies ready to go, put 10 up on the site and made 2 videos each for 5 of them. I'm going to save 1 set for the weekend to upload.

    Created a new account and uploaded movies. Commented on some of my other movies , liked and subscribed. Went to the top trailers and pasted in links back to my videos and some direct to the site. Manually boosted the 5 videos and added views and comments from the usual suspects. Quite annoying enhanceviews only allowing 1 vid and 250 views and all the other restrictions. Couldn't manager a bunch of videos. Finding ub2views to be my favorite i think so far. Might pay 5bucks for next step in vagex.

    How many accounts do you think you should make per IP. I've paid private ones and have about 4 accounts on each now. I think i can get them swapped out, just wondering what peoples opinion were on this.

    I'll throw out a bone to anyone who reads this and maybe wants to participate in this 'saturated' market. So i usually ignore documentaries but seen the one on Obama. I've no opinion either way but i know everyone else does:) I put up a vid for the whole 2016 documentary and went to the trailers and other vids and posted links in the comments. Not sure if it was just that but went from 100visitors to 500visitors before the comments were flagged. I tihnk I also got triple the clicks on it as well if not a lot of conversion. Sitting around $2 a day this week.

    Last thing, decided to spend some balance i had at fiverr on some US PVA's. I'm only going to use these for comments through public proxies. I dont have a bot for liking up a comment and the thought of doing more than 5 myself i think i would lose the will to live. I'll see how they go and if they last. 5 conversions and they will have paid for themselves.

    No uploading of videos today but got my 100 accounts delivered. Decided to jump in so comments on public proxy to 12 videos, then back in with another account and replied to the original ones and liked/commented my own videos. Traffic has picked up anyway as i've about 50 vids online in a week.

    I'll be honest i'm nervous about posting links to my videos on the big videos will get them taken down faster but screw it , at the end of the day i'm just using it for traffic , if it goes down i'll upload another. I can't stay under the radar for ever and need to scale things up one day. Found a cheap VA for $1 a hour who could post on comments on youtube, prob a quicker return than trying to code a bot so maybe next month i'll try that and do this a bit smarter.

    Enjoy you wkd BHW !

    lost 1 account but this week made $26 and seen good increase on clicks on the site. I think putting in the effort on the posts and videos makes a real difference. Really slacked of last week as i was pretty much a stay at home dad full time and the day job so was wrecked. Should be better this week.

    Did you try messaging in youtube? You can easily try doing that with tube tool box. That might help you.

    I've never looked at tube tool box. So i sign up and then use it for one of my accounts to get a user list , send messages to them , post comments and then switch to a new channel after 3 days and do it again. Is that right?

    i'm with godaddy so fooked right now.

    So i uploaded 10 more videos over 2 new accounts. $10 at the weekend which was good.
    Had a massive job interview today with newish company which would be a huge pay rise and that went really well so hopeful for that.

    Ticking along at $2 a day on average and didnt upload anything all week. Had a couple of interviews for the new job and a job offer on Friday, 50% increase in wages !!!!!!

    So with last months earnings bought MVB, had it for 1 month previously and then cancelled. Uploaded 30vids today.

    The accounts i bought are bit annoying, need to login to each and set up channel and prefs before i can use with MVB, different location error with the proxy otherwise.

    Spent some time trying to work out how to get proxys to use with youtube accounts without paying for them. Its very frustrating trying to find the info.I've taken the proxy multiply 7 day trial to test it out. I've got scrapebox but need to work out how to use it properly for youtube proxys in the US.

    I've 4 private proxys but they wont hold up with MVB running a lot and i dont want to be buying lots of proxies until i know i'm making some half decent money.

    Any ideas/suggestions welcome. I'm regretting the title of this thread as it gets no attention :)
