    Well I started off my eventual blog farm with an autoblog in the health area (weight loss, acai). I was approved to a CPA that offers a couple trials with good payouts.

    6 days ago I launched, have up 21 articles now including some videos from CC.

    I used NikHilG's great autoblog plugins post to get me started.

    I update 1-2x per day. 1-3 posts each time. I ping the site only 1x per day from pingler

    I went and used fast blog finder to grab some ******** blogs in my niche. Posted about 20 comments, then I used comment kahuna and did about another 30, mixed do/no follow (a link is a link, many people say). I did searches for CommentLuv, KeywordLuv and other variations to bring more ******** result ratios.

    In my comments, I used something like. "Wow, I've been searching the internet for some information like this for a new site I'm starting next week. Do you mind if I post it on my site with a link back here? Feel free to email me to let me know! Thanks"

    Although slightly obvious, it's longer then most spam, I avoided leaving a link in the actual comment text, and just used the Name field for anchor text. I've recieved multiple emails confirming I could use the material for my new site. In the meantime they normally check out my current blog themselves. (A visitor is a visitor, right?)

    As of right now the site is FINALLY getting indexed by G (only 4 pages) and I don't rank yet for the keyword I chose. Yahoo has about the same amount of pages, I figure I'll start pulling ranking when the other pages get indexed.

    I get about 70 spider hits per day, 40 Visitors, 65 Page views, and 5 feeds. Currently I think many of the "visitors" are just spiders being counted wrong (but I could be mistaken).

    I have no adsense on the page yet, simply waiting to be indexed and see traffic near 100/day.

    I promote a free trial CPA with $30-$35/payout exactly matching the blog niche. I'll be happy with 1-2 sign-ups per month. Think that's a reasonable goal?

    Today, I decided to give prstorm a try. Extracted 1000 of my own addresses. Did a 20% run @ 1 hit per url w/ 40 threads. (That's about 200)

    I plan to use prstorm about 1x per week, per autoblog, hitting about 200 sites each time. I'm hoping to get 10-20 backlinks per week from this (think that's reasonable?)

    Any other suggestions on giving it a healthy boost?

    should I bother doing anything more or just sit back and hope for the best? After adding adsense of course. The articles aren't unique btw (they are from CC using one of the rewrite templates). We'll see if I get google slapped.

    I figure if I combined everything into a checklist that I did, I could do a new autoblog in about 1.5hrs (set-up, configure, starter articles, 40+ do follow comments, 200 prstorm hits). Curious if you think I should add anything to the list to increase it's chance of success.

    I used a subdomain for this, on my VPS, since I'm testing. If this blog can make 1 sign-up per 30 days, then I'll be estatic and spend a weekend launching 30 more of them, promoting all the same way. I just want to make sure I have a complete line of steps to take on the promotional side of it without missing anything.

    Is there a working auto bookmarking script for wordpress? Nulled?

    Dude, I'd sit back on it for awhile, let the auto portion of the blog do it's work. Give it a week or so and check in to let things run.

    As for a bookmarking script Socialize it Pro is a good source.

    Best of Luck to You!

    That is good work and looks like you are really organised with this, i am doing some auto blogs as a side project but early stages like yourself. I quite like the visitor is a visitor part by inviting bloggers to your site.
