    I have a question for the experienced auto bloggers out there. On average how many posts per day did you do (what is the most you could get away with posting) without being marked as a splog?

    Thinking as a publisher, I would say three per day is enough. But I would vary the wordcount of each post and/or the type of post (e.g., about a person, about a thing, about an event, etc.) so the publication will not look boring. Or maybe, I can schedule a type of post on Mondays, another type on Tuesdays, and so on.

    Anyway, I haven't done it yet, but I think this is how I will solve the problem/issue.

    I would agree, 3 is plenty. I've done 1 a day and had no problem with ranking.

    If you're using some good plugins to handle your blog, I think 5-10 posts a day is not a problem. Try some good seo and rewriting plugins

    Ditto, I think 2/3 per day is enough. I publish twice a day on my autoblog. I read on an old thread that there will be no benefits in rankings between 1 post/day and say 10posts/day

    Still thinking as a publisher, if you generate 5-10 or even more articles per day, it's better to keep them in your inventory and ready for publishing. All you have to do is queue them and post them in advance (i.e., a future date). This way you have a full publishing calendar.

    If you still have more than enough, you can spread them out between 2 or more blogs.

    10 post per day after 2 hours. But ping SEs only 2 times not the 10 times.

    I actually dont understand how we can just post 2-3 posts a day and expect to make even a few cents a day from adsense. I have some autoblogs, a few covering general topics which makes 10 posts and 4-5 videos a day and I get about 70-80 visitors daily and it makes me around 20 cents a day. Not much but I wonder how much traffic you would get if u make only 2-3 posts and how many clicks that would generate..
    I just checked TechChuck.com and it has about 19 posts for today, 23rd oct.

    This is why you should have quite a few autoblogs.

    Plus, you still need some pretty good topics.

    Of course, look at EZA. They pump out how many articles a day with no issues. Use the blog as an article directory.

    This is my logic. The number of posts accumulates every day. At 3 posts per day, that's 21 posts per week. In a month, that's a total of 90 posts. So, technically, the reader/visitor still has a lot of posts to read on any given day.

    And now for the kinds of visitors. There are two. New visitors and regular visitors. Frankly, the new visitors have no idea how many new posts you add per day. Since they probably got there from the Google search page, they probably will be hitting an old post on a topic they searched. So, the new visitors will be saturating their senses by clicking one post after another. At this point, put yourself in the shoes of your reader, do you care if the post is very old? Would you be constantly looking at the date of posting? I don't think so. I know I don't.

    And now for your regular visitors. We still need to qualify regulars. Is your blog their only source of information? How much time do they have to read your posts? If I have 3 new posts at 500 words per post, that's 1,500 words or roughly two A4 pages of new information. It will probably take me about 5 minutes to read. Anything longer and I'll buy a book or download an ebook.

    And now for the ads. My logic is that the ads change every day and this is true even for a single post. So, each day the reader who keeps coming back sees something different. Whether you have 3 new posts per day or more, the number of advertising slots is fixed. So, there's practically no difference.

    Of course, this logic fails if you have some kind of news blog where people absolutely need to see new stuff and lots of them. But then again, I don't have much knowledge nor opinion on this highly competitive type of blog with highly perishable content.

    After reflecting on this issue, my final answer is a total wordcount of 1,500 per day per blog. At 500 words per post, that's three posts per day. Any higher and it seems too costly for a blog even if it's an autoblog.

    Since I am planning to maintain several blogs on various topics, I think it is a prudent policy to just have about 1,500 words of new content per day per blog. By the way, I think there's a better chance of increased readership and/or unique visitors if there are several blogs.

    Concerning time. In my experience, time is directly proportional to the number of items that need to be processed. In my case, I estimate that I need about 20 minutes of editing time per post. That's about an hour per day per blog. Any higher and the cost becomes prohibitive.

    if the domain is new, something natural, less than 5 posts per day, if the domain has some age, you can post more

    with some old domains i have been posting more than 30 posts per day without problem, but something, try to avoid to ping too often, use a plugin to control that, or those sites you pinging could ban you

    in fact think that if you don't ping all the new posts, is like if you weren't posting them, so you could be sending 100 new posts a day but ping only 2 or 3, this option could be also an option

    Each of my autoblogs has about 5-6 feeds it pulls from, and I have them on a 24 hour rotation, so at most I can pull 5-6 a day, but it usually ends up being 2-3
