I decided to take a look at Anime Cap. Now, if any of you remember (which you probably don't!), the guys at Anime Cap wanted to affiliate with me but then... I dunno... Mysteriously disappeared. At the time, I thought the guy was dead. Apparently he's not. Surprised?
In anycase, I dunno what I was expecting, but I came across this:
Well its been a nice run, animecap will no longer offer HD streaming for free, we are charging $2 for membership the site should be open and ready for member signups in the coming days, doing this will allocate more time to animecap, making ongoing anime episodes online faster and in the highest quality possible. please if you have any complaints contact email@example.com :D
WHAT?! Come on, Firestar. You're gonna start charging people $2 to become members of your site? Are you nuts?! The same $2 dollars people could save simply by coming here? Last I checked, I have a larger library of HD anime. Firestar only had about maybe 5 or 6 HD anime episodes when I last went to his site. That's it! Some of that stuff was old and licensed.
Firestar, here is some advice. Keep your services free, but put advertising on your site. The more hits your site gets, the more revenue you'll earn. The more revenue, the happier, right?
Speaking of which, I was thinking about doing the same thing. I really only have google ads in one area of the page. I was thinking about scattering the ads here and there. I was also thinking about investing in some unobtrusive banner ads. Ah well... We'll see what happens.
