    This last week Google has banned 5 of my Pr 4 blogs for auto posting. I had these blogs running for a year straight and made good money off of them, but Google caught on and banned them all. I have seen people state that Google is cracking down on auto blogs and now I witnessed it first hand.

    I have a lot of other projects that's pulling in money so I'm still doing good, but my adsense has started to drop off. So I'm just writing this to warn everyone that if you rely on auto blogs to pay your bills it can end up hurting you at some point.

    How do you know it was auto-content, and not the fact your splogs have a footprint or are linked with the same Adsense ID?

    Good point. To tell you the truth I don't know if it was the adsense that lead them to all 5. But I can say that I have other auto blogs that have not been banned and I'm still running the same adsense Id on those as well.

    Would you mind telling us what type of autoposting you were doing? WP-Omatic or something of the like>?

    Well there no way google can know your auto post unless you posting to often or the same time or there footprints.

    What auto poster were you using and I assume the content was readable since you gained ranking ..

    The blogs were Blogger blogs. I wasn't feeding back links to these sites since before I started auto posting. All the rankings I had from them were already established like 2 years ago.

    I had a program called " Promo Arsenal " that found hundreds of deleted blogs. So I just grabbed the url's and claimed them as my own. You can't do this no more since Blogger doesn't allow you to register a url unless it was created under your account.

    So anyway some of them were like pr 4's and some were even higher. Once I grabbed all these blogs I started posting content through the rss feeds of hundreds of similar sites. I never had to back link since they were already going strong. This when on like I said for a year, and then this past week 5 of them were banned from G. I still have tons of other blogs, some set on auto posting and others I post to like once every 6 months or so.

    I never linked any of these blogs together so the only footprint would be my adsense Id. Oh and also these blogs were all under different blogger profiles, so they weren't all under the same gmail account.

    That's interesting, because i've done some testing and posted before about G footprinting networks with Adsense ID's. I know someone who seemingly had a "black" Pub-ID and most the sites it got put on went to hell, i put it on some of my stable sites and about 10 days later they fell to the #100's for the top ranking terms and traffic went down 90%.

    It didn't happen to all sites, but most of them. So it makes me wonder if they are labeling publishers "poorly performing", for instance if your Adsense account gets 1,000 clicks and zero of those clicks convert for the advertisers it just wouldn't make economic sense to rank those sites highly and send organic traffic to them.

    Afterall, the happier Advertisers are the more money they spend with Google and the more Google makes.

    Actually i got a feeling that Google start to investigate those people who has a lot of blogs with same adsense ID in it. Through adsense, Google will be able to know how many blogs or sites that person has.

    They will be suspicious if someone is able to maintenance 10 or 20 blogs with few posting everyday. When your adsense income is high enough, they will get someone to investigate your blogs. Ultimately, they will ban your adsense account w/o paying you a single cent.

    Half way true . Just kind worded evilly . Google assigns you when you get in the upper figures an Account representative . If you are doing something funny yes they will ban you. How you had it worded makes it sound like the hire the CIA to investigate you. All networks have AM's (Azoogle, Copeac , etc.etc.etc.). Google is no different they just do not waste the man power on low paying incomes . They only assign one to the heavy hitters .

    Would it help stay under the radar to have different adsense accounts under different business tax id #'s, so that each business has a limited amount of income?

    There would be to many variables to give you an exact figure. I used some good tactics to get a 13.5% ctr though. I also made sure it was within adsense TOS. One of my good blog's that was pulling in 3,000 hits a day was making money off of adsense and paydot.com products. So as long as you go into auto blogging knowing you can at anytime lose your position in G it's worth it.

    My blogs are still bringing in traffic from yahoo and other search engine but it's no where near what Google brought me.

    Update:

    It had to be my adsense pub ID. I followed all of my blogs which were deleted had my adsense ID on it. The only ones left is those that I didn't run Google ads on. Oh well live and learn!
