    Hi all,

    I wanted to share some basic info for those just starting out about the some of the cool benefits of blogspot.

    1. Quick adsense approval if you apply within your blogspot account.

    2. You will be heavily scraped. This will help you get other sites you want to get indexed fairly quickly. Just post some basic content and toss in a link to a site you want indexed or have a small boost in SERPS and you are golden.

    3. PR. My blogspot is absolute crap, makes no sense and it is a PR2.
    This gives me a little bit of link juice. Sites I link to get indexed in google 24-72 hours, no sandboxing.

    These are just a few of the benefits, if you do not have a blogspot account yet, set up 1 or a few, toss up some articles or youtube vids. Every once in a while, toss up some fresh content and let the sites age. You will have your own quick indexing network with very little effort and like I said, the sites can be absolute crap and you will still benefit from them.

    Interesting idea. I can see this being developed into a script to automate mass Adsense account creation, each tied to an automatically created,populated blogspot account.

    I've had a couple blogspots in the past but they've always been abandoned.

    I also have a blogspot account with PR5 before. The sad thing was I was doing paid reviews at that time. Fortunately, I also raked in a sizeable amount of moolah to pay for my personal needs because of those blogs. But when Big G unleashed its fury and up in arms against the mercenary bloggers OUCH! all my blog's PR conked out.

    It seems to me that it should not be counted on for the long term. A great short term opportunity I'm sure.

    they usually lock your blog if they suspect your blog to a SPAM blog, or someone reports that it's a SPAM blog. the easiest way to avoid this is to have your blog empire spread across multiple accounts, and remove the blogger NAV BAR from your blog's template.

    newbie question here ... how does the default nav bar affect the likelihood of your blog being flagged/removed?

    just curious.

    Maybe 5 to 6 blogs per account would be a safe play?
