    I have heard a number of people say that Autoblogging is dead.:(
    The blogs I have made are making a little money, but I wonder if it's
    a dead end.

    Any thoughts?

    I think it is dead, because Google is becoming smarter, it isnt 2005 anymore, the internet and SE have evolved, and yes there are a view that make some beer money with it, but i really doubt it will be anything significant.

    Yes, it's true...

    No need anymore to invest time and money in them.

    Before Google gets down on you better delete all the autoblogs you have AND DON'T MAKE NEW ONES!!!

    I want to repeat that DON'T MAKE NEW ONES!!!

    I will sacrifice myself and keep my blogs up just to be an example of the wrath of Google's Hammer....

    Auto blogs are great concept, lazy way to make money you set it up, press one button and relax, Honestly I think those days are gone. IM marketing is getting more competative and with depression on our hands, people are trying everythg. Now days to be Authority figure in IM you have to think outside of box, you have to jump on new trends and always diversify your earnings. YOu know the saying dont invent the wheel, well it is wron YOu need to invent a new wheel, that will be only way to make money online. Also dont be affraid to loose money, we have too loose money to make money!

    So when people say stuff it is believed? I should probably organize a propaganda ring to keep people conditioned and conforming with my desires, whiles I rake in the change. :D

    I dont think anything can be dead.

    If something dies out just do it differently.

    use some other methods of monetizing, cloaking, popin, generate your content differently, promote differently.

    sell posts with links on your blogs, dont just do what everyone else is doing, and it will never die.


    but by all means, DONT BUILD ANY!!!

    I wont mind at all. As a matter of fact I might think about this for the next 15 minutes and come back and delete this post.

    Nothing is dead. People do this all the time "Seo is dead", "Blogs are dead", "Bla bla bla is dead". Oh, alright, if you say so, less competition for me.

    I think it is more the case that they are becoming more challenging! With more and more out there and the SE knowing more about them, it will become more of a challenge to achieve anything like what was happening 4 years ago.

    Maybe as iamsgf said, it will just get more difficult.

    Look at backlinking. Some years ago link farms were a great way to increase your SERPs. Now they are not, so now you have to get better links.

    Same with blogging.

    It's certainly not dead, hell, I still make a bit of money off some crappy autoblogs I'd set up years back. Not a lot of money, but for the work involved, good enough.

    Read my lips.
    "Internet Is Dead".
    There's too many competitions in the form of milions in numbers & in the next few years it will be billions of competitions.

    You are so right :p

    Now do me a favor and post this in every possible forum and site.
    Scare everyone so in the upcoming months and years me and the other few strong warriors will survive and dominate everything while the weak and useless are gone :D

    Fear is for the weak, you can deal with the competition, if you are afraid it means you are lazy and want everything to be easy, you won't make big cash, EVER.
