Post Is there a future without paying file hosts?
Lets face it once the attention turns away from megaupload it's safe to assume any file host with a pay program is in for a visit from the net nazis. Indeed most reputable hosts are already suspending or doing away with payments altogether so IF paying file hosts are a thing of the past will we see a resurgence in paying image and streaming video hosts. Or will they simply be in line for legal action too?

We all know that even with apps to upload images and videos it can be a more time consuming proccess than just uploading a single zip to a few paying hosts to provide multiple links in a post. A set of 100+ pics in a post also loads slowly and looks shit so what are the options for us?

Do we go affiliate and just use free galleries and videos from paysites? Can you really make money from that without 100's of automated blogs circle jerking millions of visitors a month until they get bored and either close their browser or sign up out of frustration?

Can we make a site profitable using non paying file hosts and rely on advertising?

Do we make the content ourselfs becoming the copyright owners and most likely spend most of our time sending out DMCA notices?

Is there another option?

Maybe the future is to have our own file hosts, and them not offering affiliate options, something like that ?
I imagine a future in which half of your shares are free, while the other half is premium members only.... Have it in intermission with sponsored galleries, something like that...

We could always host the stuff and charge a fee. sort of pay per view.

Me, on my blog, I'm VERY seriously considering creating my own file host, only to serve my own uploads to my own visitors, closed to other uploaders, not announcing any money sharing, and with a clear policy to remove all reported contents.

With hopes to make premium sales of course.

starting our own filehosts is looking more and more like a necessity and should be simple enough but what complicates things is the need for payment handlers to deal with premiums.

And Daniel, seriously man, if you are going to start a new site just to get the rewards from file/image hosts then just forget it.
How many times have we seen hosts just shutting down and leaving us hanging?

The whole game is getting the traffic. Once you have that, the income from adverstizing networks and affiliates will be your main thing and file/imagehosts rewards just a bonus.

Your first AND last priority is to bring in the traffic to your site. As long as we provide porn for free (non paysite) THE ONLY WAY WE MAKE MONEY IS THROUGH THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC.

i have 3 sites that i earn money from. one makes me money from advertising and some affiliate links. i host all my own pics with ads on each page like any other image hoster. one was a porn file sharing site.. i am not sure if i am going to continue this site with all the shit that's going on. lastly is a TGP kind of site that has all affiliate links and galleries. of those 3 sites, i think my earnings are inversely proportionate to the amount of effort i place on them. that is, i work the hardest on the first and the least on the last.. but i make the most off the last and the least off the first. i guess i am doing this wrong :laugh: it is time to reconsider what i am doing i guess.

See the problem with hosting our own files is that we become completely responcible for what we host meaning DMCA notices will soon turn into law suits.

As for relying on imagehosts? Well it's a possible option in the very short term until things become more stable but you're right cooper image hosts simply go away overnight. You're also right in that it's all about the traffic however no content = poor traffic as who in their right mind is going to visit a blank site? Which in my mind brings me back to affiliate sites with those shit free galleries and videos? :cry:


How about using free hosts but using Usercah like redirects? Put an advert banner at the top of a download page or something? I used something like that for a while on my blogs and it was a an ok earner. Hell didn't the owner of UC sell his site for $500.000 or something? So it worked for him.

Believe or not Daniel, as far as I know, we are ALL doing the wrong thing when it comes to earning.
It is exactly those "affiliate sites with those shit free galleries and videos" and no real free porn at all that make the most money.

Think of it, if a visitor comes to a site like most of our blogs where he can find free porn as much as he wants, why the hell would he click on ads and pay for some adult site membership (Which is basically how we make money from the blogs)?

We are going about this the wrong fucking way: The less free porn on your site, the more money you make from your traffic :roll:

But less free porn on our sites means less returning visitors and I always liked those few loyal nuts who kept leaving comments on my former blogs :(

Still the more I research and think about this the more I think affiliate blogging is the only way to go. From a legal pov I suppose it means few if any problems and no mass link changes and post deletions every year or two like many webmasters are having to do now.
