This is description of a business model that's actually in use.
- Create cheap 1-day account at porn site
- Hide the credentials behind a number of look-at-this-ad-before-getting-redirected URLs
- SEO for $pornsite password $date
People don't want to pay for porn sites but are willing to jump through many hoops to get to login data for those sites for free.
Major pay-for-porn sites provide kind of "trial" accounts that cost 1 or 2 US$ and give you (mostly) the same access that normal accounts have.
They are valid for one or two days and automatically get converted into normal pay-per-month accounts if they are not cancelled at at the right time.
Why 1-day accounts?
Many people will try to access the porn site with the account's username and password. The following issues will arise:
- Sites have limits for the number of IPs that may log in per account. So after a time, the account will automatically get locked.
- Funny people will change the account's password, locking others out.
Those issues still exist for 1-day accounts, but are of much less impact.
A new 1-day account every day makes it work for much more people, keeping your reputation.
Use virtual/disposible/one-time credit cards so porn sites cannot lock you out because you buy test accounts every day with the same credit card, and many people (IPs) try to access them.
The business plan is to earn money by combining 1 day accounts and link locking.
To maximize profit, link locks are chained several times: Link 1 opens access to link 2, link 2 opens link 3...
The main task is to find the sweet spot in the chain at which people stop clicking before getting the credentials. It will damage your reputation if the account details are locked behind that spot.
An example found in the wild web:
- 4 chained link locks that open access to a pastebin-with-captcha URL.
- Pastebin contains link to another chain of 4 link locks, which finally lead to the pastebin-with-captcha that contains the porn site account information.
The pastebin-with-captcha in the middle is to prevent the user from thinking that they are locked in a loop and give up.
One link locker site listed 6.6 US$ for 1000 views if they are from US-american viewers, and 2 US$ for 1000 views from german viewers. Prices got as low as 0.48 US$ for viewers from Tunisia.
Chaining the links multiplies the earnings, but not linear: People will stop clicking links after their personal bullshit limit.
If we take the combination example and assume that 500 people click through to the credentials in one day, and assume an average price of 2 US$ per 1000 views, then we would earn 500 views * 8 / 1000 views * 2 US$ = 8 US$.
We spent 1 US$ for the account, which leaves us 7 US$ per day.
To increase the number of views, more people need to click the links. This means search engine optimization, which costs, and maybe posting advertisements in search engines, which also cost.
- Money is lost if accounts are not cancelled in time
