    Which is more profittable? A normal blog which I manually update content myself or an autopilot blog?

    I think they can both be equally profitable.

    I personally prefer a normal blog rather than an autoblog, but it's all up to you man. Just don't start ONE autoblog and expect to make much money with it :)

    I am more positive towards the idea of a normal blog as well. Do you get your blog hosted? Or do you use those free ones?

    ill go for autoblogs , as it is set and forget it . You can create autoblogs really fast and more blogs = more niches = more chances to get traffic = more money :)

    This answer depends on so many factors. It is not just as simple as one is better than the other.

    They both can make money, and both can rank well.

    You can also combine them. If you have a good niche, you can use the UAW plugin to fetch articles and combine them with your manual postings. Works pretty good. This way there is no need to worry about new content all the time.

    I have all 3: autoblogs, normal blogs, and a combination of the 2 blogs. I make money from all 3.

    you could write all the posts yourself and then make it drip content thus making it an AUTOBLOG BLOG! lol but seriously the only difference between the 2 is content and time put in. Id suggest doing a lot of autoblogs with good content on drip feed for about 3-5 daily posts.

    hi
    i have both and both are new blogs.
    I feel autoblogs are better idea.
    Why because you add more content easily.. and without even giving any time for content u can use ur time for backlink building .. and other kind of promotions..

    but i am trying different things... auto blogs and now looking to build video blog also..


    I would also suggest that own domain name and paid hosting are much better option then free host.. free subdomain blog..
    i have spent good amount of time with those..

    I dont know but my manual blog on own domain gets indexed fast... and gets better ranking then manual blogger blog.. and traffic is much better as compared to blogger blog...

    so now i go for hosted blog with my own domain name
    more of my auto blogs.. and few of my manual blog.
    ( i dont know how many many blogs i can create and update daily i am slow with my manual blogs)
    but auto blogs are updated daily...

    i also liked this mixed idea thing and i am going to try that also..

    another thing hit and try... try auto blog it wont cost u anythign except domain name and if u can host another site in same hsoting account .... get another domain anme for manual blog ....will only cost u domain name charges...

    ^^ There's no such thing as "best" as it's all subjective and depends on what you want, specifically.

    As you're askin gthat go and try out something like wp-omatic to see what it does and how it could be better.

    I have been reading & researching on autoblogs and it kind of got interested. Will research more before I take the plunge! Are all plugins available mostly for free or do they come with a price?

    There are plenty of plugins:


    1. CC
    2. Autoblogged
    3. Wp-o-matic
    4. Feedpress
    5. UAW
    6. WP-Robot
    7. etc.............
    Depends on what you want. UAW is full articles, but can be generic topics. A mix of a few are also good.

    How do you guys ensure that the niche you gonna do is not already saturated and is the gaming industry saturated assuming I wanna start an gaming news autoblog?

    You can start and manage more autoblogs than you can regular blogs; however, your regular blog will also be more appealing to advertise on and likely get you more traffic if you know what you're doing.

    If you're good at blogging, you should do a normal blog. If you don't have time to update a blog (or just stink at it) go autoblog. Not a knock to autobloggers, just how I learned it. Still need to experiment more with autoblogs myself.

    It's pretty risky to post even 15-20 legit blog posts in a day.
