    My main autoblog which was getting near 2K visitors a day is now getting 1000 to 1200 visitors a day. I was gone for 7 days and just came back from vacation to find out earnings dropped from $60-$80 to $20 a day. It is a autoblog on a drug fetching only yahoo answers mostly.

    Any explanation?

    Auto blogs strong as ever, possible big G has had a bit of a tidy up on spammy content but your blog is still live and making some dough so it clearly still works, i'm sure it will pick up again

    with the last G updated, haven't autoblogs become a waste of time? most of them either pull in duplicate content or spin content and make it nearly unreadable to the human mind.

    You'd be better of spending time building a couple of authority sites in niches and build them out into full websites pull big traffic and big sales.

    You may have a little bit more trouble with ranking them as quickly, but autoblogs are still quite profitable.

    Autoblogs are only dead if you make them. Keep it alive, and you'll survive.

    What do you mean, add more twitter feeds? How would this help?

    It would help by increasing traffic without the need for Google.

    Just setup a few more twitter accounts. Only follow people that are targeted to your niche. Use twitter feed of dlvr it to feed your autoblogs to twitter.

    I have an autoblog that Google will not even index that gets killer traffic from Bing, AOL and Twitter... So no they are not dead...

    You just have to feed them other ways to get traffic.

    Also submit all the rss feeds to as many places as you can. Not just the main rss feed,but all of them each category on your blog has its own feed. Then you can take all those feeds an mix them and resubmit.. It works for me.
