    I have a niche articles website and I have purchased 12 new domain names that I plan to setup WP Blogs on and would like to feed them with the rss feed from the articles. I am trying to find other RSS feeds in my niche but I am only finding feeds with summaries. Is there a place that lists available feeds with full articles rather than summaries? Or should I just use WPOMatic for my feed and every once in a while use Caffenated Content to diversify the content? I will not be interlinking the blogs, but would I be running a risk of getting banned for duplicate content doing this or just not ranking well in the SERPS? I looked at the WriteAgain content spinner but I would like to keep the content legible.

    Any suggestions

    Using any form of feeds and copied content will always have a potential of being banned. I had a autoblog site that has been running for over 12 months with PR2, 1 post every 2 day and it just got randomly banned from G. No idea why!

    Any form of duplicate content will not do well in SERPs.

    I have now found that the best thing to do is sit down for 3 hours with a Article rewriter copy and paste in articles, rewrite them, proof read and then schedule posting. I find that within 3 hours I can do one of my sites with enough unqiue, readable content for a whole month.

    Having been looking at the whole auto blog thing for quite a time now, I have come to the conclusion that I am not going to invest my time into something that 'I believe' is a dieing option. What I mean by Dieing option, is that This is something that G is definately trying to combat and it will become harder and harder to run a long term autoblog.

    However that said, there is still money to be made running auto blogs, I am just choosing to look for something new

    With regards to FULL RSS feeds, I have been looking for them as well. At the momment I have a programmer trying to write a prototype search script that will find them. If successful, then it will be available in the BST section for a few $$ when complete :)

    Well, I too have thought about that. I originally planned on creating all into standalone article submission sites, but I simply don't have the time to run them all efficiently. But, I felt I would probably end up with the same problem anyway, b/c the authors would end up submitting duplicate articles themselves. I felt I could better run the main site had unique articles and had the blogs autopopulated based on the feeds. I planned on each blog having it's on template, etc to differentiate them some. Would like to more input from other members.

    I have several sites that use only WP-O-Matic and WP VideoTube, been running for a bit over a month, posting 1-3 posts per day and no bans yet. I think it works better with domain names that have been used before and have had legit content previously, as this is the case with my autoblog domains. Technorati even accepted 80% of them to be claimed!
    Getting 150-200 uniques daily but the AdSense CTR is crap, so I don't get much money from them.

    But it's a good method to incubate the domains, get PR, backlinks etc., and maybe flip them after a while for a higher price, or redirect the traffic to something else.

    How many articles are you able to do in that amount of time and what program are you using to assist you? I have been using Wordflood, but I still find it taking me 30-45 minutes to get an article rearranged and worded the way I want it. I am trying to get to a point where I have 5 new posts a day to the blogs and 10 or more to the article sites.

    Thus far only myself and a couple of other authors are using the site for article submissions, but it is new and hopefully that will pick up once it begins ranking better. I have just been using a "article title" search in Google to see if it has been submitted elsewhere. I guess I should subscribe to copyscape.
