    Hi all,

    I've been doing a ton of research over the past few weeks on autoblogging in this forum and others and my questions to you is:

    Is autoblogging slowly dying?

    Whether it was the last google algorythm change in feb 11 or just people have failed success it seems that this stuff was banking in 2009 and now its fizzled away.

    This topic really interests me and I have a few questions to you if you've done this before.

    1. What's the best software for feed fetching and are there any that are free?

    2. Has anyone noticed the fact that google has put the "kaibash" on their autoblog?

    3. If im dedicating approx 8 hours a day and a fast learner, would a goal of making $25 a day be out of the question.

    4. How long did it take you to start earning money autoblogging?

    5. Any MUSTS or DON'Ts that everyone should remember?

    Thanks everybody, I definately appreciate it. - I'm just sick of spending blocks of $150 dollars on software that I don't need and it turns out to be a huuuuuge pipedream and the goal seems inobtainable.

    I'm not a quitter ;)

    -J

    I'm not going to answer all your questions because I'm not into autoblogging, but from my experience any low quality content is from long time at risk of being ignored or even sandboxed by G, especially when automation is involved (spam in eyes of G).

    I must agree with thetraveller. Sadly, I tried to jump on the autoblogging bandwagon last month, but after some research at BHW and around, decided not to dedicate any time to something that Google is slapping down left and right.

    If you're such a hard worker, why not build some blogs with fresh content instead? It's a lot more work, but there's less chance of Google slapping you with that approach.

    Yes the days of lazy, narrow-minded and non-creative autobloggers are over. Fortunately it's a good thing for those autobloggers who know how to do it in a right way. For example, I really like how Panda reduced the level of competition, since 90% of shitty template-made autoblogs were knocked out from the Google SERPs.

    Autoblogging is not dead. It's just moved to another professional level. In 3 words: adapt or die

    Very good point! ha!

    I've just always built legit sites but they struggle. I do everything to promote them and it just seems the sites that have no creative touch always get ahead. Whenever I search for something now, it seems like the top ten search results are: a. non related to the keyword, b. copy - someone trying to sell a shady ebook, or c. a site that no one knows how it got to where it did.

    I guess google's kinda killing my motivation :eek:

    Google needs and appreciate unique contents, anything which is duplicated or copied from any other website will not be taken into account as Panda is strictly monitoring such contents. With auto-blogs you will not get the rank that you are targeting, its' better that you should start writing content of your own.

    I find auto sites that are custom built (not using blog/w/iki software) have a higher chance of not being slapped. Others may have different experiences.

    I would support that. I think Google does not care about HOW you are doing that but about your end result - interesting and relevant content. I've seen on this forum many complaints from the owners of UNIQUE content websites who were slapped by Panda/Google. So the key here is Quality - created manually or by autoposting - who cares.

    Autoblogs will work, nothing from the fundamental rule changed, "content is the king". This being said, find a good article spinner that will make your fetched article unique and then you'll see great results from your autoblogs.

    Always hated the idea of autoblogs. Filling the internet with fucking junk. Like it's some digital land fill.

    Fresh unique content is my main game. I wouldn't know how to spin an article if I wanted to.

    The problem is that auto-posted content is normally very low quality.
