About a year ago I started 10 autoblogs. Have never done any SEO on them, only linked them to a twitter account and added followers. After a while I was at about $100 a month but then got bored with them as it was alot of work adding followers etc... to every account. So stopped them, some got banned from the shared hosting for using too many resources. This was my first time so you live and you learn. Anyway a year on 1 of the autoblogs is going strong without any help from me. It's getting around 1000 hits a day and earning about $10 a day from adsense. Amazing considering I have done no SEO work on it at all. Lesson from all of this? Patience is a virtue. Plan for the long-term and not just short-term gains!
