    I posted this in another thread, but it was suggested to put it in it's own thread so I took the advice and here it is.

    I'm looking to put together the ULTIMATE blueprint for making money on autopilot with blogs. I know that sounds very generic and vague, but let me explain.

    I've been curious about this for some time now too. I'm looking to diversify my income, and am very interested in creating a network of auto-posting blogs for either linking purposes or Adsense/affiliate purposes because it really seems to fit in well with my overall business model.

    Throughout all my forum reading, ebook buying and reading, etc I haven't seen one cohesive BLUEPRINT for doing all of what I mention. (a footprint-free blueprint)

    I know it would probably be a great product, but I think with all the great minds we have here we can create a great step-by-step system for accomplishing this sort of autopilot income.

    Not looking really for mass-generated, duplicate content (from same RSS feeds) or gibberish blogs. More Gray hat than anything.

    The system I want to create MUST be:
    *Scalable
    *Automated
    *Broken down into easy steps so inexperienced workers/outsourcers can easily be trained via video and PDF to do the setting up and the work that can't be 100% automated.
    *Practical- not 1000 blogs in 1 day...trying to be "natural"
    *Longevity
    *Can be a mix between black hat splogs, never meant to be seen by humans, which support the more grey/white hat "money sites"

    Blogs that are created easily, look nice, leave no footprints.

    This means not putting adsense on most of them since you'd be letting google in on all the sites you own obviously.

    From what I gather, these would be in the automation toolkit: (Everyone might have preferences to alternative software, but I'm just looking to make sure the basic functions are covered)

    *RSS2Blog for auto-posting content.
    *WPMassInstaller for creating many blogs.
    *AutoSocialPoster/RSS Bookmarker to bookmark each post, getting backlinks and possibly some traffic
    *Some mass account manager to monitor everything in 1 place

    Content Sources:
    *RSS feeds for RSS2Blog (have to be randomized, synonomized, rewritten, something...)
    *Article Directories (scraped w/ orwell pro, rewritten by outsourcer or content solution-type product, imported into an RSS feed to drip into your blogs)
    *Original, written by outsourcers (ehhh)
    *Generated Crap/Markov Black hat "spider food" for later seperate "support sites"

    Linking: without links, no traffic or rankings. Million methods here of course...but for more "natural" methods...
    *Signing up for multiple web 2.0 sites (Squidoo, Tumblr, Hubpages, Clearblogs, etc) posting backlinks to blogs (SE Nuke, etc)
    *Social bookmarking via AutoSocialPoster/RSS bookmarker, other software tools too
    *Blog network services
    *Article submission (UAW)
    *Blog Comments
    *PR's
    *Manual 1-way Directory submission (cheap and effective)

    Later On:
    *Split testing Adsense with CPA, affiliate links, other contextual, etc.
    *Support money sites with BlackHat stuff...search engine cloaker sites on multiple IPs with advanced plug-ins.

    For sites in the same niche, all different IPs if we are linking them together.

    This brings me to the point of what the blog network is for:

    1) that a whole network of blogs could be themed just to boost rankings for your clean white-hat money sites, and aren't monitized at all. They are ONLY for backlinks. So, Markov content might be ok on these types of blogs, but I think human-readable content is still better if it can be created cheaply and quickly.

    2) the blogs could just be there own sites, monitized directly and not really there as part of any "support network"

    What do you guys think...suggestions, additions?

    I'm just having trouble wrapping my head around all the different options, techniques, plug-ins. I know there are 1000 ways to do it, but like I said, I have yet to find ONE resource that shows a complete step-by-step blueprint for creating an automated income stream this way. There are a lot of newbie-type ebooks for people who would rather spend time than spend money. I am at the point where I'd rather spend money (on outsourcers, content writers, programs, plugins, etc) and keep my time to focus on other things.

    I'm open to paying for training, systems, software, support, or partnering up with people....

    This isn't meant to neglect newbies, I just feel there is plenty of material online to help get your feet wet, but not a lot of matieral for more experiened marketers to "take it to the next level" and really scale up.

    thanks

    just forgot to mention, you can use re-written PLR articles for your money-making sites. besides, established PLR normally come with blog networks too which can be used to increase PR for your blog network. article underground is one of them....

    yea I was a member of AU a while back, it was pretty good...just took a lot of time at the time, so I quit it. I guess I should re-visit it since a lot of the grunt work can be outsourced. if anything, it would just be another tool in the arsenal.

    the only thing about rewritting PLR is it either takes a lot of time or can be costly when you are looking to scale really big. that's why I'm kind of leaning towards using RSS feeds as primary content for the blog networks. however to avoid dup content and footprints, you really need to have a lot of rss feeds, randomized, mashed up, and even maybe rewritten a bit (such as with synonymizer plugin)

    surprised there hasn't been more responses yet...hopefully this topic isn't over a lot of peoples heads here

    Yeah this would be pretty good, as for me im big on step by step instructions...everything i do i write my own personal step by step manual for my own continuity...i dont wanna forget something.. like for everything i do online i have a manual that i personally made for my own 411 (how to make quick blogger niche sites, using squiddoo, how to use BMD, i even wrote down the complete steps i use when im looking for stocks to invest in.hehe)

    with that being said i have really been interested in using blogs for backlinks..i mean it is basically a link farm but my whole problem is that im clueless as to how i would do this without getting caught and banned.. thats why i just do not understand "bloggergenerator" at all. the whole proxy, coivering your footprints, different ip's and all that is just way over my head. but i would love to test and learn you can om me with anymore info you have or future development i guess you can say im in.

    Is this plan of attack still going for you, or were you trying to have someone do it for you while you rake in the $$. This was an interesting post, however no one really was down for it, and you have 8 total posts.
