IMDB SCRAPER – WORDPRESS IMPORTER – MAGNET CRAWLER
This is a wordpress theme! (UPG1) Upload it to a clean wordpress installation with no posts and follow instructions in the theme’s control panel.
What is special with this theme ? It spiders IMDB and get lots of information, thumbnails etc as posts.
You can see an example here : onlinemovies.pw
- You can change the logo at : wp-content/themes/upg1/logo.png
- You should enter your own “add this” code at line 12 of file wp-content/themes/upg1/header.php
- To fill your site with information from IMDB you need to set a cron job to run at regular intervals (or run it manually). The script that fills the database is at : wp-content/themes/upg1/cron/enter.php . The easies way would be to just setup a “web cron” using a website such as : easycron.com. This way you can just call http://yoursite.com/wp-content/themes/upg1/cron/enter.php and you are done!
- You need to edit line 63 and 70 of single-post.php with your affiliate codes
- Remove all widgets, leave only the categories one!
- Rename the Uncategorized category to All
This will work on any enviroment. I have run it on mutliple server versions on digital droplets on digital ocean and worked fine. If you receive an error about curl_opt and open base dirs, make sure your php.ini does not limit your base dir to anything (open_basedir = none)
- Traffic : Create a youtube account and then fill it with trailers using a service like video swipper(amazing traffic)
- A great affiliate program with the best conversion ratio for this kind of websites : Affbeat (about 24$ per refferal, conversion rate about 1/1000 !!!!!
- You can host your site on digital ocean , just fire a wordpress droplet for 10$ a month. Then enable supercache and cloudflare. With this configuration you will be able to to withstand about 500 concurrent users easy!
