    Well...Several months ago I bought around 100 domains for an instagram project. It is over now and 100 domains are staying idle.

    So I decided to make them alive. Here is my simple plan:

    1- Wordpress will be installed on all those domains.
    2- They will be monetized using adsense, clickbank and/or amazon.
    3- They will be hosted on 60 different IPs (I have got a seo hosting account with 60 IPs)

    Follow me. I will update this thread frequently. Let's see if they will make money.

    Thanks.

    Around $400 for domains (I can buy any domain from netfirms for $4.95). And $25 for hosting (I got it through a black friday deal).

    If you don't plan to interlink them or link all of them to one site then using seo hosting is a waste of money and might flag the sites as google put some watch dogs on the ips used by seo hosting companies.

    Thanks Scripteen. I did not buy SEO hosting for this project and it is damn cheap ($25/month for 60 IPs). So no worries.

    All 100 sites will be wordpress autoblogs. I will use wprobot and blogsense to populate the content.

    To install blogs, setup plugins, make fine-tunings, I have hired 3 VAs for one month. After that, only one VA will be enough to manage blogs.

    I'm interested in seeing how this goes. Autoblogs are one of the few things I've never touched. I wasn't in IM during the autoblog boom and pretty much figured it had died off due to the recent updates.

    I have seen newbs time and again say that want a 100 blogs that will make $1 and give up quick because it's too much work but I have seen enough of your posts I think you'll follow through, good test on autoblogs at the least.

    Thanks for all replies. I need to make clear some points here:

    1- I have got around 100 domains.
    2- They are mostly .com domains (70 COM and 30 INFO)
    3- Domain names are related with making money online (because of our insta project which is over now)
    4- They will expire in 8 months and now all of them are idle.
    5- I will install wordpress on all domains
    6- I do not have time to fill them with quality content.
    7- Thus, all sites will be autoblogs.
    8- I will use wprobot and blogsense as autoblog tools.
    9- Youtube, yahoo news, yahoo answers, rss and articles will be used as content source.
    10- None of those sites will be in english. Rather, I will use German language.
    11- I will use semrush and google keyword tool to extract keywords for each blog.
    12- Domain name and site content will be unrelated. For example, I will install a beauty autoblog on a domain about making money online. (please don't laugh lol...:) - PS: I have lots of experiences on this subject)
    13- Having domain/site names in english and content in german may produce negative results. I am aware of that.
    14- I have hired (for the first month) 3 VAs to setup blogs, plugins, fix issues and fine-tune sites.
    15- I bought sick network to manage all blogs from a central locations. More details will come later.
    16- The total cost of this journey will be around $2500.
    17 - I may totally fail, this journey can be a disaster or it may bring some money. I do not care much.
    18 - Wish me luck for this odd journey...

    I am not linking anything to anything...

    Mate, are you stoned lol? How can this thread teach you a lot to make quick cash? I haven't even started it yet. Are these words all from a template that you use for all people? Because they never fit for me.:)

    Noticed that also Edgmatch? The journey has just begun and already he's learnd a lot. I counted 19 threads where he posted the exact same text. Like he's trying to rack up his post count. Dude, say something motivating to OP so he can be successful and along the way we can learn from his success and failures.
    Not flaming the poor guy, just reporting an observation.


    On a more positive note, Edgematch, I wish you all success. You have a lot of work ahead of you setting up your 100 sites. Please keep us posted so that we may learn along with you. Thanks for sharing you journey.
