  • Lukasz Rogala: You are doing right thing - pages like this can be treated as a thin content. I would focus on building correct structure of optimized categories to get traffic there.

    Also as I can see you are hosting content which isn't legal to share via Internet, right? So you have two other problems - Google respecting copyrights and other services which can submit ;Legal Removal Requests.

    Thats not stable way of getting money I think. Think about building traffic other than Google Organic too (direct/social media).
  • Julio Marquez: thank you Rogala
