When I first created my autoblog thread, I made it concise while still trying to be vague. Numerous reasons, but the more important one being I couldn't risk some dingdong duping my blogs and competing for my traffic. =P But throughout the thread I kept getting questions and concerns that started to concern me. I didn't know why my blogs had not been killed by Google or why my host was not concerned with the quantity of autoblogs I had running. But then again, I never really cared to think about it because I had no reason to! Other concerns about further monetizing my blogs made me wonder if I could do that too. So then I took some time to think about the issues for a second.....and got nothing. =D Well, not true-- I did start adding affiliate links/banners to my blogs and csing a few of the more popular ones adsense-wise and notice some nice change in my clickbank account. Ok. Good job. So you can monetize these further, but what about Google and your host down your neck? I was thinking about it until the other day when I went to set up another one of these blogs. I went to my cpanel, was scrolling down to the Fantastico to install WP, and then I noticed the lil notification of how many processes I had running at that particular time. At that obscure time of the night, it was something like 7 of 25 and I thought 'hmmmm....'. Perhaps my host is ok with my setups because I don't have too many processes running at once. I specifically set my autoblogs up to where they do not directly conflict with each other too often so they are basically not all posting at one time. No matter what interval you choose, they will always collide so that is why I try to keep a reasonable number of blogs on one host at a time as well. So like my setup would be: autoblog1: post content every 11 hours [humanized]/vids every 22, 23, and 24 hours [humanized] autoblog2: post content every 10 hours [humanized]/vids every 25, 26, and 27 hours [humanized] autoblog3: post content every 9 hours [humanized]/vids every 12, 13, and 14 hours [humanized] autoblog4: post content every 8 hours [humanized]/vids every 15, 16, and 17 hours [humanized] autoblog5: post content every 7 hours [humanized]/vids every 18, 19, and 20 hours [humanized] autoblog6: post content every 5 hours [humanized]/vids every 28, 29, and 30 hours [humanized] autoblogs7: post content every 6 hours [humanized]/vids every 31, 32, and 33 hours [humanized] autoblog8: post content every 7 hours [humanized]/vids every 34, 35, and 36 hours [humanized] autoblog9: post content every 8 hours [humanized]/vids every 37, 38, and 39 hours [humanized] autoblog10: post content every 9 hours [humanized]/vids every 21, 31, and 11 hours [humanized] If you notice the numbers I chose, I chose them because they allow for less conflicts with the other times and still require a lot of time between posting before posts are made to make it even more natural. Of course, humanizing the posting. And allowing for the fact that plugins like the UAW plugin do not allow you to post time intervals and can post at anytime another blog is posting. But what I do even further than that outline I provided there is mix it up. So blog 10 doesn't really have to post 9 hours and then 21, 31, and 11. It could post every 8 hours with 37, 21, and 12 hour intervals too; so long as I use the numbers the specified number of times, I haven't run into any hardships. It'd just be a long long time before all the blogs post at the same time. =D [I'm not gonna do the math--I'm just gonna assume the inevitable and make precautions for it as it comes.] For Google, I go in monthly and change the swap around the intervals on the blogs. =D I'm still seeing adsense earnings, but on the advice of all of ya'll, I looked into monetizing the blogs further and am also seeing earnings via clickbank. I did not change my theme on already built blogs to adsense ready themes, but experimented with them on another niche. Now perhaps it is because I have to wait again another month or so as I did with the others to see earnings, but at least with the others I was getting random clicks here and there. I get less visitors to the adsense invaded theme, and my bounce rate is much higher (89.6% range as opposed to the 72.2% range I see on the ones I took the time to make look natural). I used the same plugins and even added additional content posting plugins to assure more variety of content and it gets about 1/3 less traffic than the other blogs. Perhaps I should test it out with the niches I already have and see if it is just a wrong niche, but I wasn't really motivated by the results to do that. =D Anyhow, I see lots of people are looking into autoblogs and I still advocate them heavily for anyone just starting out because of their hands-off earning potentials, but wanted to make sure that you all were thinking about everything involved. It DOES take time to set them up, but it is time well invested if you can start driving traffic to them. I mean if you are going to be around here not getting paid to do anything, you may as well be using free means of driving traffic to your blogs. I'm not the expert at all, but just thought I'd let you guys know what my thoughts on the hosting and Google matter was. Perhaps I am wrong, but I still have not felt the Google hammer or been contacted by my hosts. And I've been getting paid so I'm straight (though not literally....=P)!
