    nah. but thanks.
    I haven't heard of anyone making a lot of bucks from it.
    And I'm talking about $200 + a day at least.
    Is anyone here making that much?

    I understand it can take some time but still its pathetic how little some are satisfied to get. And don't even ramp it up or something.

    I don't know where this TechChuck blog comes from, but people talk about it a lot. Well wouldn't it be more effective to create a niche blog with cpa offers and such?

    I don't see how TechChuck can make much cash. Just some adsense ads and such.

    Sometimes I want to rank for keywords in a particular niche. But I don't want to use article directories. So what I'm thinking of doing is getting an autoblog instead of a blog just so it updates daily and when I want to rank for a keyword I have found / chosen in that niche I submit to that autoblog my own keyword-optimized article.

    I think that would work.

    edit: just wondering, how many autoblogs do you have?

    It's a matter of numbers with auto-blogs and most look at it thinking unless they make a certain amount of money, usuaully too high, it's not worth it. You only need to cover your expenses and make a few bucks more per domain. Actually, only 1 more dollar is a profit, right?

    And then do that over and over, lots of times. We're talking thousands of times.

    I recommend limiting what you pay out, eg... I made my own article spinner with Excel, so my only expense is domain reg/renewal and I have a monthly expense for se nuke. Get use to using php and hacking the install script, much faster than fantasitco once you can dump all your plugins and content in a single DUMP. The auto-blog game is speed and automation.

    I'm happy with a blog making 10 bucks a month. I can do that all day long. A good system should allow you to get blogs up fast with the necessary plugins you need and content. It's a trade off, how much time do you spend on a blog, what you have to do to them and then cut them loose.

    I dont buy the field with get flooded. I have seen no decrease in my ability to find markets.

    Also...think of all the bans and babs sites that get delisted? Just waiting for you to pick up the slack. Avoid using blatant rinse and repeat systems that thousands are using making it easy for google to grab the footprint and ban.

    good luck my friend.

    There are different formulas for earning an income online. Autoblogging is one. However, one should get used to the idea that IM is not a static venture. One should expect to change as their market changes. If you use autoblogging as a tool to earn income then you may see this income fluctuate greatly as the search engines and users deal with your content.

    NO ONE can predict how much YOU will make. That is up to you...the more money you make the more 'skin' you'll want to put in the game.

    One thing is sure...someone is making $200 or more a day. There are many who are making more. But there are TONS who don't make a penny.

    I think you maybe over-simplifying what will be required of you to make the amount of money you desire. I would think "what are the steps to making $1 a day?" then scale it up...and diversify.

    Original content that answers whatever brought people to your site will benefit you better than duplicate content/rewritten content using some kind of plug-in.

    There are plenty of people that will write articles for you with keywords and create backlinks/submit to directories take advantage of that if you want things done fast.

    Ok I will start with the possitive feedback...

    I'm not going to say how many autoblogs I have but it is growing at about 2-5 a day. I see results instantly and each blog is making about $1 dollar a day... (over a period of 1month) so it could mean I get no Adsense clicks but make a $30 sale from an affiliate within that whole month.

    Now I am here telling you that I am making money with Autoblogs and each blog is making about $1 or more a day.

    Autoblogs will be banned at some point or another unless you mix in unique content. Creating a blog with complete unique content will help you a lot more in the long term, as you won't have to pay for new domains. Outsource writing if you dont wanna do it and you'll earn some decent cash with any blog.

    I've been making money with autoblogs for years now.

    I don't make much with adsense that's for sure, but I make good money promoting different products as an affiliate.

    The thing I like about Autoblogs is the amount of different ways you can make money with them.

    I found collecting emails and promoting products overtime has been the most successful.

    The money is in the list.. and autoblogs make list. :)

    This has been said and said over a period of years. But to be honest its not going to happen. The key to success is to make your blog EPIC, and not to just wip up a shitty splog. This is what will ban you...

    Unless you do stuff wrong and go about it the wrong way you will get your ass served.

    It seems that everyone worries about getting banned at some point. Here is my strategy: create autoblogs to you hearts desire but use the funds to drive projects that do not pay out right away. So, while you are receiving income from PPC, use that $$$ to invest in your CPA/WH sites. Have articles written, pay someone to help you with pagerank and search submissions...just work smarter not harder. Also, you can use the AB income to buy ads for your CPA sites...see you can Rob Pete to pay Paul.
