    Alright so CB is letting me back in now. Also it looks like all my accounts are still up and running. I think the key here is to make sure the account doesn't upload on multiple proxies. To ensure that I just delete the account after each upload round as long as it has uploaded some videos.

    For those asking for screenshots, here's a screen of my hops vs my order form impressions since I started uploading CB videos.

    The first sale has been made!

    Well, it finally happened. The first sale. It's for a really low paying offer, $12, but still, better than nothing. More importantly it brings some hope that this can actually work. I've been working at CB for almost a month now so this is really awesome to see.

    Last night I also fired up GSA and made a quick campaign for a video. Probably going to setup a couple more campaigns today for other videos as well.

    Anyway, that's all the news for now! Hopefully this doesn't get refunded haha.

    Cheers,

    Automated accounts keep getting deleted. I assume it's for obvious reasons like using the account on multiple ips and the fact that I can't seem to get CCleaner to work properly with MVB Pro. I think the only reasonable thing to do right now is put in the hard work. Eventually I think I might try to make an account creator. Unfortunately it will have to use an actual browser which is a little depressing, but I'll just have to get my bot to work with CCleaner I suppose. Basically I want my bot to just take a list of proxies and try to make an account without phone verification. When it does it would then upload 100 videos to that account and then it would never be accessed again. Just like what I was doing with Azure. The only problem is that I highly doubt public proxies could achieve this. Anyway I'm rambling again.

    Today I think I'm going to get back to work and upload some videos manually. Those accounts stick and that's what I want. There's really no sense to upload videos just to have them taken down 24 hours later.

    In other news, hops are down big time. Down from around 150 to only 34 hops yesterday. Today is really slow too. Perhaps the potential bot clicks have just stopped. Anyway, time to get some work done.

    Cheers,

    Hey guys. Been away for a few days but I'm back now. I realized last night that I can probably upload 1000 videos manually everyday. I really don't know why I haven't been doing that. I've been doing these CB videos for a month now and only have 3k videos up. That's pretty sad. Once I have the time I'm going to try to upload 1k videos everyday.

    In other news, the first sale was refunded. Boo. Oh well, it's still proof that sales can be made with this method. I'm going to continue scaling and see what happens.

    Not much else to say right now.

    Cheers,
    xxf8xx

    Support and very interested. I've not travelled much and it's also a life goal for me. Good luck.

    Back to work!

    So I kind of realized I was jumping the gun about uploading 1k videos everyday. It's doable, but not really plausible. For now I'm going to shoot for 500 videos/day and then see where that takes me. I have all day today so I might be able to surpass 500 but we'll see what happens I guess.

    All for now.

    Cheers,

    Timing myself today, it took about 4 hours to get 500 videos up. It would probably take me roughly 7-8 hours to get 1k online in a day. I'm not too sure how many more I'll be uploading today, but after the next set of 100 videos goes online I'll be past the 4k videos online mark. Can't wait to see that hit 10k, and possibly even 100k some day.

    I'm back! Yesterday I only had time to upload 300 videos so today I need to upload 700. I have already uploaded 200 so I have 500 to go. Today I've been thinking about automation again. I decided what I want to do is to write a program that will use a browser control to create VMs for me on my azure account. Each VM will use a custom made Windows installation that has some kind of proxy service installed right from the get-go. The bot will then use the ip of the new vm to create an account and start uploading 100 videos from a giant pool of videos I will have loaded in. It will then destroy the VM, create a new one, and repeat the process. It's a pretty elaborate project and I have no idea if I will be able to make it work, but hopefully I will have some time to try some things out soon, beginning with testing proxy software.

    Anyway, I have tons of work to do today, beginning with uploading these 500 videos. After that I have some fire wood that needs to be chopped up and a kitchen to clean. If there's any time after that I'm going to start working on finding some kind of proxy software. I'm looking into AnalogX right now which seems pretty straightforward and simple.

    All for now.

    Cheers,

    Spent the past couple of hours trying to login to Azure programmatically without a browser and failed. Decided to see if there is an API and MY GOD there is. I should be easily able to create/delete VMs programmatically now. I really didn't expect there to be an API for something like this but I guess from now on I'll always check for an API and possibly save myself hours of trouble.

    Ok. So today I kind of had an epiphany. I've been grinding CB and YT for a month now to no avail. What I really want to do now is try and revive my membership site. I'm going to do that by using some laser targeted fb ads. The plan is to scrape UIDs of users that are actively commenting/liking posts on pages in my niche, and then only showing ads to those people. Today I setup a test ad so far only targeting 2400 people and the results are really good so far. My ad has reached 66 people and 5 people have clicked through. Total cost was only 4 cents for 5 clicks so this looks pretty promising. CTR is is the double digits! Obviously it's pretty soon to judge how it will turn out but so far so good. I'm going to setup some more ads today and see what happens.

    As far as CB and YT goes I think I'm just going to coast along with the amount of videos I have up right now. It's really just not something I want to continue doing. It's super boring and repetitive and not showing any promising results.

    Anyway, that's all for now.

    Cheers,
    xxf8xx

    Got one free signup on my membership site yesterday. No paid ones yet though. We'll see what happens today.

    2 more free signups from the Facebook ad campaign. Just wanted to post a screenshot of the stats since I think they're pretty good. I'm only paying 1-2 CENTS per website click. Right now they are just hitting my homepage, but I would like to tweak my membership page a bit so they can see part of the content they are actually looking for, but to get the rest they need to signup for the paid membership.

    Anyway, here's the screenshot:

    Ok. aMember integrates into Wordpress quite nicely and it was incredibly simple to lock specific content. The only problem is that I have to go through every single post and do it. Ugh. A little annoying but it should hopefully increase conversions.

    EDIT: Got my main ad fully setup.Users are getting redirected right to the content they are looking for but the important content is locked with a message saying they need to be a paid member. On top of this, I got a plugin to display messages to users from Facebook. The message just gives the Facebook users a coupon code to get their first month for only 99 cents. Hopefully all of this will make conversions skyrocket!

    I'm also scraping more UIDs for a big sub-niche. SLF is taking all day to scrape. It'll be awesome if this sub-niche can get me a ton of UIDs though.

    Great ideas! I am sure that you will make it. Just make sure that you have enough content for them, something like a month of reading (50-100 articles related to your niche).

    Or at least this is how I see it.
    I will be following you!

    Pretty interesting, I will take a look at this.
