    I wonder if there are some experienced autobloggers on here, not newbies... or curious like me.

    So, unless you make a living from autoblogs, please do not participate with smart ass comments lol

    Ok, so my question is - what are your tools (and methods, but mostly tools) to drive traffic to your autoblogs.

    If i setup 10 autoblogs and get each to 10K unique a day, which is feasible if you have right tools and approach, then life is good.

    Is anybody getting this traffic? If so, care to share?

    I use:

    Wordpress with :

    WP-Robot
    TweetMe
    Sexybookmarks
    AllInOne SEO
    Auto Tweet


    Then i have twitter profiles set up. When my blog makes a post, i have a PHP script running on a server that fires off to auto-retweet anything my main blog twitter tweets. It takes 100 accounts and randomly selects 25 to retweet the tweet.

    I use social oomph to set up my accounts with twitter, so they auto follow, send messages to new followers etc, etc.

    I have a few facebook accounts (all female) that i use to occasionally update their status' with links etc, but found twitter to have a better return on clicks.

    Thats the basic setup. There are loads of useful threads here about autoblogs, my first autoblog was set up on the back of the thread about copying a website like techchunk, that was about a year or so ago. Now i have 15 autoblogs, a couple I've abandoned over the year but they are still running. My impressions are 4,000 - 6,000 a month.

    10k uniques per day to an autoblog??? more like a few dozen to a few hundred if you know what you are doing and only here and there you'll get a blog reaching a few k

    as for tools - I rely mostly on se traffic, so I don't use any tools to drive traffic - when the year passes the blogs that get google love stay and the remaining domains are let go

    the most important part for me is getting the content and this is something I won't discuss

    btw I have a few hundred sites, most of them (auto)blogs and quite a few handwritten

    for now I am just playing with few autoblogs i setup to test the process... on newdetails.info.
    So, it seems he did setup those plugins... But it seems you have some additional script running?

    Ya, i read all the threads but i ma not a programmer, so some lingo is hard to digest, not to mention - couldn't setup on my own. And hiring someone to setup for me 100 blogs is a bitch.

    I used to use blogs organizer, but now I use only wordpress (Google loves WP) - as soon as I have enough content I simply install wordpress say on 10 blogs and then "inject" the content into the databases - this way you can drop a few thousand posts at once if you want to, schedule them and forget about the blogs


    don't worry that much about the tools though, do a few blogs by hand and if it works find a way to automate whatever you are doing and if you can't you'll always find people who can do it for you

    no, i have done my share of by hand. I am done with it :)

    hpv, doesn't seem like yours are autoblogs. "as soon as i have enough content"... I am feeding my autoblogs with content automatically with WP robot with an articles rewriter (that does a lousy job, let's face it - my blogs have some strangge accent lol good thing i do too.. )

    ok, more traffic insights would be appreciated. anyone?

    On a thread I saw earlier on this site a guy was getting like 20k a to an auto blog but that was because he got accepted to Google News. He said he had some posts on the blog with original content and once he got accepted to Google he went automated.

    Not working very well for me.
    I use WP with:
    WP-robot
    WP super cache
    XML Sitemap
    Wordtwit
    useful 404's
    Old post promoter
    KB robot

    I have a PHP script rewriting the article. I have each post twitted every time. I have a php script getting the amazon product for sale in the article if any. If nothing on amazon, I have it from ebay. I have permalink set on %postname%. I have a youtube video randomly every 5 posts.

    I have them since a while but no traffic, no sales, no adsense results...

    Well, no working very well for me...

    nufaman, you are very helpful. I am such an idiot and i couldn't come up with this brilliant ideas to search treads lol

    do you remember that thread, spsfinest? i have a few original blogs, 100% quality unbique content, but i am getting about 100 uniques a day. Those i wouldn't touch with autoblogs...
    would love to read that thread, but to get accepted by Goog News you have to have news related blog and meet other creteria?

    accordingly to what i've found ht.p://www.pluginhq.com/how-to-get-in-google-news-and-receive-8000-visitors-for-one-article/

    How to Get in Google News

    There are multiple ways to get in Google News, and I'm going to highlight some of them below.
    News Website
    First of all, there are some technical requirements you need to meet in order to be accepted, Barry Schwartz covers them excellently.
    Secondly, you actually have to run a news website then make a ‘request' for acceptance, according to Google News' Daniel Meredith. I do recall Danny Sullivan stating that Search Engine Land was included automatically without him having to do anything though.
    Meredith also stated that the main things the team looks for before including a site are:
    Original content
    Multiple Authors
    Proper Attribution
    Response time (website speed)
    You may need to request to be included multiple times which was the case of Search Engine Roundtable and is probably the same for most publications. I was quite surprised about the fact that numbers need to be in a URL which you will find in the technical requirements.
    Paid Press Release
    Thankfully, just because you don't write a daily news source, it doesn't mean that you can't be indexed in Google news.
    Multiple websites such as PRWeb allow you to send out a paid press release that is likely to be picked up by the news source (and others) and get as many eyeballs as possible on your content.
    Make sure your press release has main keywords in the title and also includes them in the copy. Theres some other great information about this over at Web Pro News.
    While I'm not saying you should buy a press release about the term Facebook, it is interesting to note the volume of traffic the blended results are sending to individual articles. Can you think of any other high volume keywords that have blended news results near the top of the listing?

    newkid... you are my man!

    ok, don't go anywhere, we need to talk lol

    so, help me to understand that:
    - is you nice adult that it's so traffic rich? lol

    ok, real questions:
    - how long did it take to your blogs to get to these numbers?
    - how did you promote them? it's not just plugins, is it?
    - why do people recommend less plugins? i didn't read those threads yet.
    - and how long would it take for you to setup another blog from scratch? (why aren't you adding more, if you don't mind me asking this personal question... does it take a lot of time for you to promote/maintain those 2)?
    - how often does your blog updates new posts for each source/keyword?

    ya, i know... so many questions...

    please stay on the thread, we are going to have a serious talk here lol

    hey observer, do you know how "autoblog" threads there are on BHW? since you dont know where and how to search, let me do it for you:

    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/search.php?searchid=9402238
    Why dont you try that instead of making the 242nd thread about autoblog?
    Thanks for your time.

    @ observer, See nahid thread.. he has directed you to search for this term and there are plenty of information available here. Believe me there are more than your appetite... I have learnt most of the stuff from these threads only.. but I applied some other twist becoz I do not blv in getting 100/200 visitors a day..

    Coming bk to ur ques:

    - how long did it take to your blogs to get to these numbers? - It took me 4 months to get into this number.. but yes the statistics started right after a month of set up. Right from one wk, I started getting 100-200 visitor and all of a sudden it jumped to 1000... and then never stopped...

    - how did you promote them? it's not just plugins, is it?: I do not promote.. But I do use SB, linkwheel and my own tool once in a while to let google understand what my website is speaking about... you can search my another thread.. I listed that steps in basics
    - why do people recommend less plugins? i didn't read those threads yet: Plugins are nothing but php and execution gives load to the server... IN turn your website becomes slow and google does not love slow responded website :D

    - and how long would it take for you to setup another blog from scratch? (why aren't you adding more, if you don't mind me asking this personal question... does it take a lot of time for you to promote/maintain those 2)? I am not so efficient.. any other guy in place of me can do the same work in 1 day but I take 3-4 days to set up. And I have a diversified interest.... Does not want to limit myself just into autoblog... i m also a service provider, I am into CPA// so what all i can do...

    - how often does your blog updates new posts for each source/keyword?: Dont ask me... you will go mad... I have seen the days posting 600 posts in a day in one blog;;;

    so, you are a rule breakers... I like that... lol

    could you please refer me to relevant threads as you seem to participated in at least 100. :)

    so, if I remove your own tool out of scene and use the rest, would the remaining formula be sufficient for you t0 get at least 50% of existing traffic for the same blogs?
    ya, i know, probably a lame question, but i don't know much about all your tricks, guys... learning...
    also, what is SB?

    Here is my thread, if you want to apply. Though the result varies... it works good to me always

    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/168728-how-i-ranked-top-10-google-3-days.html
    SB is nothing but social bookmarking

    btw.. you desired to have 100000 unique per month initially... now u want to have 50% of mine mean 500000.... 5 times more:boxing:

    The trick is the traffic always will be.Even if you are running a autoblog put some original content on it.Talk to the people who are visiting your site.There are literally thousands of ways to generate this kind of traffic.

    I don't believe in "if you build it they will come". Knowing that there is 10000 methods doesn't help. You really need to know what works the best for others and apply... unless you want to reinvent wheels. i don't.
