    I want to create lots of autoblogs. Is it a waste of time doing it on these sites?

    Wordpress will probably ban you (= your blog gets deleted), and people have had mixed success avoiding blog deletion with blogger. The problem with these two is that you don't actually own your URL; your blog is part of someone else's massive property.

    With .info you actually own the domain, so you at least don't have to worry about your blog ceasing to exist because some putz considered it spam. The downside is that some say it's harder to rank a .info than the other major TLDs. This last part is controversial - some say it's no harder than ranking anything else.

    I'd go with .info over the others simply because then the domain is yours. Whether it's a waste of time is apparently down to your SEO skills.

    Thanks. So is there anything actually wrong with .info domains apart from supposedly being harder to rank? Every Autoblogging book I've read has said to get .com domains all the way, but when you want lots of autoblogs this gets very expensive. Has anybody made autoblogs on .info and other such domains? What's your success been like?

    If you have the money, going for .com, .org, or .net(in that order) will give me you a little more ranking boost in the SERPs. Not to mention they sell much easier and for a higher price if you flip them.

    With that said, there is nothing really wrong with .info domains specifically, and they do have their time and place. They are cheap and they get the job done. It helps to think your auto-blog strategy through before buying up your domains.
