    I have 3 autoblogs, in average 4 days old.
    Each has 500+ backlinks till now accordingly to SEOQuake, 40 indexed pages, in total 500 posted pages, domains are semi-optimized, with good trafficpotentials, .coms.... SEO plugins installed etc.

    And I have absolutely no traffic. Zero.
    I am not sure where to go from here...

    I mostly care about organic traffic.. but... nadda....

    Can anybody help please? I want to keep working on it, and setup new blogs... But I wonder if I do something wrong....

    well... doesn't 500 links in 4 days sound suspicious to you? How many real websites get those kinds of backlinks in such a short period of time?

    are they trying to hit certain keywords? Are the keywords in the domain? Do your backlinks have anchor text?

    I assumed that the blogs are with fresh content less than 4 days old. If not, then you would not expect any traffic in such a short amount of time.

    It takes time Bro. just continue bookmarks and submit your blogs in many online directories.

    so, from your experience, with autoblogged content... when is it realistic to expect some traffic.
    I use wp-o-matic for content, and WP unique to uniquify it.
    500 backlinks suspicious? well, i am not deindexed, the blog appears in seach engines with indexed pages... right?

    I've been fooling with some autoblogs and even brand new ones I can get at least some clicks for almost immediately. Even follow through clicks over to places like Amazon. How? Twitter.

    Take a look at shezblog from a search here on BHW. Basically just hook up that autoblog to a twitter account and start making some friends over at twitter. And it might even be pretty nicely targeted if you do it right.

    it is hooked to twitter, but i don't care about random traffic.
    i care only about organic traffic that matches the content. and i just don't understand why it's not happening for indexed pages... some log tail keywords i would assume should have driven traffic already...

    any other experiences? timing for organic traffic...

    wank content / wrong keywords.

    Well from what you posted I don't see why you would think you would be getting any organic traffic in 3 days just because you blasted out a some links. Getting pages indexed is nothing. Where are you ranked for your keyword/s? If you aren't on the first page you won't get squat in that short of a time frame. You need to do more promotion in the first stage for an autoblog. The less you do.....the longer it will take! There are plenty of methods such a Shezboy's or Earnsethemmingway's that if you do them properly will give your autoblog a nice kick in the ass to get it started. Twitter traffic is only "Random" if you don't know what you're doing. Also what is the "Quality" of your backlinks? It takes me about 3 weeks to start to see steady organic traffic for my autoblogs. Either way it takes time, be patient and do a little more promo and be sure to track everything you do. You will see results :)

    i hear you...
    but could you please explain how promo through twitter (Shezboy's? can effect ranking of my keywords at all?
    Earnsethemmingway's method - as well. Reddit vote down competitors and up your blogs - how can they effect organic ranking? yes, they will bring some traffic, which would be irrelevant for my conversion goal. Someone might like the title or the photo, but they didn't try to find my CPA offers ($1000 price) that I build blogs for.

    I have no intentions to monetize with Adsence, so that's why random traffic is no value at all. Only people who search for keywords would be buyers for my services and CPA offers.

    so, yes, i want to keep doing the work, i just need to understand methods that will contribute to organic traffic, the other is irrelevant in my case.

    ok, let's say I sell some expensive solution against depression. How on the earth can i find people on twitter that suffer form depression? they will not have any synonymous of the work in their twitter account name, and probably don't post that to their feeds.... They just quietly suffer and search Google...

    Yes, I do autopost in a Twitter account and some people here and there ad me as their friends.
    But who would one follow to build targeted friend list on Twitter for something like that?
    I somehow don't see it.

    So, I believe there are other methods that are more relevant (I posted comments on do-follow blogs relevant to the subject - that's where many links come from, the rest is just from whois kinda sites - junk really just to add value to overall SEO)

    I am yet to do social bookmarking with Onlywire (created all accounts, but OnlyWire installation seems to require Java 1 or whatever and my antivirus is not happy to download it :) )

    Really? Go do a phrase search for "I'm depressed" on twitter. Sure some of those folks are teens getting over a breakup, but I'm pretty sure there's a percentage of folks in that group that actually mean it and would probably enjoy finding someone following them who had tips to make them feel better.

    "I think I'm depressed, I just don't want to admit it to myself."

    "Wow. for the silliest reason I'm depressed. I really need to talk to someone to take my mind off this. DAMN IT. :,("

    "God! These results eat me. I'm depressed. I'm crying myself to sleep. But can't sleep"

    4 days is not enough time.. wait a month until your pages start to rank and you will see organic traffic

    Look at the numbers -
    Almost 90% of search engine traffic goes to the websites on the first page
    42% goes to the number one spot
    25% goes to number 2
    15% goes to number 3
    all the way down to the 10th spot on the first page that gets 3%

    So what place on the first page of google is your autoblog on? After 3 or 4 days I would think it's not there. Which means you are fighting for around 10% of the traffic left. That remaining 10% is distributed among the rest of the pages. If you want instant results you're better off going with a different method, like PPC. Autoblogging is a long term strategy. It takes TIME! There is no magic, people will find you eventually.

    I think may be it's because i didn't submit site maps to search engines? But honestly i can't figure out how to verify submission with Google. Where do I put that Google code in Wordpress without digging into the code?

    Where are your sites ranking on google. If they are buried on page 10 you won't see much traffic? How much competition do your keywords have?
