    So I created a blog out of about 22 pages of unique content I had from one of my other sites I wasn't using.

    Within Wordpress, I setup all 22 articles to post to my blog 1 everyday for the next 22 days..until my last article. So they are all scheduled to post once for the next 22 days.

    BUT here is my problem:

    I want this thing to be on AutoPilot while I am working on bigger and better things. The only thing I want to have to do is manage and promote it a little bit here and there. I dont mind doing a lot of work upfront to last me for a while.

    Should I...

    1. Write 6 months (or whatever) worth of MY OWN UNIQUE content up front and set that content to post one new article everyday for the next 6 months.

    or...

    2. Use something like Autoblogged to grab feeds and articles for me and have them autopost?

    Obviously there is less work in option #2 but I am worried about my site getting banned from google or losing my adsense.

    If anyone has any advice they can pass along to me I am ALL EARS!! Is there anything else I should worry about with this option?

    Thanks will be given!!

    Thanks but does anyone know if any of these run the risk of getting banned or suspended from adsense or google?

    I'd say go with the autoblog that fetches content for you 'cause you don't know if all your hard work of writing your own content will pay off. It'll take too long and you'll be discouraged if you don't see quick results.

    You'll get mixed answers from people about the banning from google for duplicate content. Some believe you'll get banned some believe you won't. You'll need to do your own experimenting.

    I was doing my own stuff with Blogspot and the money is damn little for all the work. Gave up on self-posting. Go the auto way but not flood your blogs whole day.

    What does this plugin do, I usually put PLR content on my blogs and use the Unifier Plugin to make the content seem unique to the search engines.

    I think yout own uniqe content is better, but before you start writing do a keyword research for long tail keywords.

    I'm just guessing, but I think a max of 1 to 2 blogs per day is best to look "natural". Maybe one every 18 hours?

    Hey guys, this is what I've decided to do...

    1. Gather a bunch of pre written articles in my niche
    2. Spin them w/ software and a small bit manually (so they WILL be unique but it wont take me 8 yrs to write them all from scratch)
    3. Set them to autopost to my blog once per day with PLR to Wordpress

    What do you all think about that? THanks given for all your comments.

    Sounds good, would be interested in hearing about your results. Would also like to know how 'real' your articles seem cause of course some rewriters are better than others.

    If you plan to autopost articles..See to it that you dont do it at a definite regaular interval..like every 20hrs or so..

    Make it random, like sometime at the 10th hr , next 15.30 and so on.

    Zip-Poster plugin does have such a feature and can also post from files uploaaded

    Have a look at that plugin..it might fit your need

    You should find the download link on this forum

    Actually I'm about to do the same thing. My strategy is to use PLR or unique content combined with RSS feed automated post.

    I will use theme that have featured post feature, and post the PLRs in the featured post category, so the PLRs will always shown on the top of the homepage. And then RSS feed will posted under the featured post category.

    So when visitors visit my blog, they will find readable content, or even a useful content, while the spiders will be fed with regular updates from the auto post RSS feed.

    What do you guys think about this?

    Definitely go with automated posting.

    How could you even call it an autoblog if you're not going to let the thing run by itself (ie: you creating your own content)??
