    I'm running version 3.3.7 with the latest version of Wordpress and I can't seem to get any articles at all...not even just using 1 keyword at a time. Does this version not work with the latest WP and if so, which version does?

    Or perhaps I'm doing something wrong????

    Try pulling in 1 article to see if that works.

    CC gives a "nothing found" if you try to get more articles than there are on
    Code:
    articlebase

    I have found that the service will stop from time to time. I am not sure if it is a temp ban on the ip or what but it does get frustrating. He said that he is going to add proxy support at some point which would be awesome. As blackhit says, have it pull one common keyword and see what results you get.

    I tried just one article per 1 keyword and still nothing. YT seems to be the only thing that's working. =(

    Just did a test on 2 installs.

    There's something wrong/changed at
    Code:
    articlesbase
    This is the error I get:

    Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: unable to connect to
    Code:
    www.articlesbase.com:80
    (Connection refused) in /home/....mydomain...../wp-includes/class-snoopy.php on line 1157

    Line 1157 says: $this->error="dns lookup failure (-4)";

    So I checked their site and found it is down.

    LOL....it's so obvious and still so easy to forget. Check the source 1st before tampering with your script.

    We'll have to wait till they're up again to be certain this was the problem.

    doesnt matter if you buy or not: articlesbase is down. They should use ezine as a source.

    Is there any application at all which takes content from article sources apart from CC? Even if its a desktop application thats fine because it cant be that hard to write a script to turn all those articles into wordpress articles.... or is there even software which does this for you?

    whether its CC or articlebase which is down, since of the beggining of the year its been so buggy that we should find a better alternative.... i feel this to the extent of learning php to write my own program

    You can just copy and paste shit manualy, and it wont take that long.

    Or you can sign up for RSS feeds from common news sources like Yahoo Base, or if you are really black hat;

    Find another BHW's member blog, and subscribe ur blog to his RSS. He will probably make like 3-4 posts a day and your blog will automatically do the same; just instlal a plugin to remove affiliate links and use ur own adsense.

    This wont work when you scale up and run 100's of blogs

    Why would you run 100's, of blogs, thats pretty silly in my opinion.

    You should focus on running a group or say 30 blogs, in an irrigated blog farming system (interlinked), and then set up 2 specific websiteson similar niches using a CMS and Your personall unique content.

    You should use the blog farm to irrgiate and send massive amount of backlinks and traffioc to these 2 websites.

    Now you will be making a steady adsense revenue from the blog famr, and some large revenue from the two websites. Include specific CPA offers on the two websites, dont spam ads on them, make them professional and unique.

    Now go to google, use the keywords for your two big websites to find competitors, contact all of them within 1-3 SEPR, ask them to link yuor website: as you are a database of formal information on the niche. (mentuon non profit organisation).

    Start promoting your two websites via backlinks everywhere yahoo etc.

    Now, as your blogs grow and grow larger, they will funnel more traffic and gain more PR, nowa after a month you will have 30 blogs, 2 quality websites and you will start generating somewhat good adsense revenue, but more importantly youll be gettign quality CPA hits and your CTR will be much higher because youll be funneled Targetted traffic.

    Or, on the other hand, you can run 100 blogs and u wotn make shit, maybe 1$ per blog in 1-2 months time. You "COULD" promote them and slightly increase profits, but thats just stupid, ytoull be doing much more work promoting 100 blogs rather than 30 blogs and 2 websites.
