    I just began my first Auto, and I use CC, but I'm having a problem where in the posts, I keep getting posts with "+" (plus) signs that seem to be used to divide each word from the next, and it's an eyesore. If anyone knows a way to correct this, please share it with me.

    Also, I am having difficulty getting my adsense ads to display. If it becomes a problem with adsense over time, I will switch to a different campaign for ads. The important thing is that I can display SOMETHING. I have been spending way too much time on this AB, but I do want it to be "perfect" before I move on to the next, then I'd like to use it as a template for future AB's, so ideally, the setup will go much faster for the next sites I set up. With my current template, you can see where the ad SHOULD be located, but it doesn't show.

    BTW, if it's of any use, I am using Adsense Optimizer. Thanks.

    Is your ad+sense not displaying because it cannot make sense of your content? I had an issue before like that (not with CC tho) where the spin came out looking like hieroglyphics and it showed psas

    Can you check out my site for me? You can see where the ads should get displayed. The ones I got to display don't seem to show my pub-ID when you hover over it.

    Does anyone have any help they could offer me? I've tried different plugins to get it to work, and also, my content looks like crap. :(

    OK your site looks pretty unprofessional right now. If you started getting visitors now, all you would have is a huge bounce rate.

    First you need to make sure you do all the customization required for your theme. Things like 'Your Logo' make it look stupid. Go ahead and add a logo file, and whatever other basic customizations are needed to make the site look like a real site that someone cares about. Also turn off the Blog Roll box in the side bar and probably the meta box too. I hate that wp defaults to showing those boxes.

    You need to set up your on-page seo. Either do it manually or get a plugin. You need at least a title and description meta tags. It should be set up to use a different one for each page based on the page's content. Since your using Adsense you should also make it set the meta keywords tag also. This might help with the adsense ads not displaying if it's happening for the reason huhhuhhuh suggested.

    It might just be a problem with either the theme you're using or one of the plugins, but the content your getting sucks. I'm not sure why you're getting those plusses between the words, but it isn't like that for all the articles. Unless this is just because you already solved that problem, then you need to just find some different feeds to pull from. It make the ones your getting look like a viagra email. If the site looks like a spammers site none of the visitors will stay long enough to even see the ads. Your going to have a horrible ctr.

    Also it looks like the articles are dated about every 30 minutes or so. You really don't need that much content being added that fast. It certainly doesn't help it look like a natural site. I'd set it to post a new article no more than every 1-1/2 hours to 2 hours. I'd do it even less than that myself but if you want a lot of content then that would be sufficient.

    Here is a good article that might help give you some more ideas:

    And here's a thread on bhw that gives good instruction:

    You should also read my seo threads Basic SEO practices for newbies and SEO - Understanding the Simulation to get some ideas regarding seo.

    Good luck with your website.

    I have saved the articles on my iPhone, and I'll be reading through them while I am on the plane. I need to be at the airport literally in 45 minutes, so I have to get moving. I'll see if I can figure out how to pull data from another source when I land and get into my hotel. Also, I don't know why it's doing that either, as far as the 30 minute intervals are concerned, because I specifically set it to 7200 seconds between updates, which should put me at an even 2 hours. I almost want to use something other than Caffeinated, but the fact that I paid over $70 for it is really starting to piss me off -- when the plugin doesn't seem to be doing what I'd like for it to be doing.

    Also, about the logo situation. I'm pretty good with Microsoft Paint, but it takes me a decent amount of time to whip out a decent GFX Design, and my goal is to focus both on quality and quantity for these AutoBlogs, and spending hours in MSPaint per AutoBlog is going to eat away at the time. Does each site "NEED" to have a logo?

    Also, I know I sound completely novice, and it sucks to be like this, but as far as the meta tags and stuff goes, for some reason, all of those pages were generated on their own. I never named a single category, but different ones kept popping up. Not sure if that's how it is supposed to be or not, but it did seem strange to me.

    Anyway, I've got a lot of work to do when my plane lands, and I really need to get going.

    OH, and one more thing. The reason those + signs don't appear in some of them is because I manually went to the admin panel and edited a few posts, WHICH WOULD REALLY SUCK IF I HAD TO DO THAT FOR EVERY POST LIKE THAT -- ON EVERY AUTOBLOG. It makes me want to set " + " as an illegal word!

    Anyway, thanks for the input, and I'll definately get to work on it, immediately following the checking-in of my room.

    Well you could look in hte theme and see if you can turn off the logo.
    Or just create a generic logo that would work for all of them. Just get rid of the 'logo goes here' graphic, by either removing it or replacing it.

    If it turns out caff. theme just isn't going to work, I think both those links recommend some themes that do work well. You should be able to get most themes to work, but if you can't...

    I have done a few things to it so far, and still working on it. Hopefully soon, I can get this down to a much quicker process.
