    Working with autoblogs is getting harder and harder with search engines getting smarter and smarter at filtering the quality sites from bad sites. I would keep working on building more links and possibly considering a shift to better quality content - either more heavily spinned or original content.

    Adsense can work well with Auto Blogs unless/until Google blacklist your website. They might not ban your account, but Adsense simply won't be shown on that website.

    Twitter works well at getting the traffic to your site, but not yet found a great way of earning big money from these type of blogs.

    specially when you are running a site which is 'new', avoid robots and autoblogs stuff, post original content and focus on seo and keywords being starter, good luck :)

    I have about 100 autoblog sites using wp-robot on all and wp-unique on some. My experience is that google hates these sites. A year ago they did ok for placement but now almost all are way off the first page. I have had much better luck with all original content sites; even sites with only 5 - 7 pages of unique content. These are the only types of sites I am building now and they all perform much better than the autoblogs. In addition to not performing well on search I also have to constantly deal with blog owners complaining about me stealing their content. Apparently it only takes one complaint to godaddy before they will shut down your server. I had one server suspended b/c of one complaint. The server had 40 sites on it so they all went down until I made the changes to remove the content in question. This took about 3 days before everything was back up and running. Needless to say it was a pain in my a55.

    I had a complaint from one site, even though I was linking back to them with Source: at the bottom.

    The hosts are run by pretty sound people though and when I said it was simply an aggregator, the chap I was mailing agreed with me, but said if the content author wants it off, that's the end of it.

    No action was taken, I just removed that source from WP Robot and carried on with the rest that I had.

    I'm just tweeting offers mixed with news now.

    So it's now:
    Twitter > News / Product Offers as before it was Twitter > Blog with News > Product Offers

    I've found that autoblogs with adsense don't preform very well. I started using them as lead generation pushing to a squeeze page and then hitting them with an offer. I've made quite a bit of money. Close to $50k in the past six months from this method.

    I don't think working with autoblogs is becoming hard. I think their purpose is become different. Instead of using them for Adsense try other techniques with them.


    Try doing lead gen or pushing all your traffic to a CPA offer.

    I create autoblog networks (anywhere from 5 to 50 domains) with all brand new domains and found that autoblogs work very well. Not for adsense but for lead generation and pushing to a CPA offer.

    I've had this happen and my host sent the warning email to an old email address. Completely shut me down. I just deleted the post instead of fighting it even though you can talk about any trademarked work as fair use. It just wasn't worth it.

    Tweeting all your posts is a good method to make your autoblog appear less spammy. Shows the big G you are getting traffic from a range of sources. Not just focusing on organic traffic.

    Well I'm not actually using one of my blogs now. I'm sending them to newspaper sites for news and then every 1-2 hours plugging a product on the same niche.

    Not making a great deal, probs £1-2 a day perhaps.

    Not had any luck at all with CPA offers, but admit I've perhaps not tried enough of them.

    But I'm finding most are targeted to USA traffic, whereas most of mine is UK.

    CPA Offers for UK teens/younger adults may work.

    For all blogs, or just from one. For one, with no work involved, that would be very interesting :)

    definitely not what it used to be. if you want to continue with that method, i say you have to create a whole lot of them. what you can do it check up on what's trending daily and capitalize on the market while it's hot..rinse and repeat

    Well that's actually bypassing the blog and instead just doing:
    Twitter > News + Amazon Product Links.

    I grab RSS Feeds from news sites related to the subject my Twitter account is on and every 1-2 hours plug a product. I have about 20 products and Tweet Adder tweets one of them. I then track which products are selling and remove ones that aren't and add new ones.

    I'm also earning £50 a month simply for tweeting for a website. When they make a new post, I tweet their update. It's all run automatically, so the £50 more than pays for my VPS which is about £26 a month. Not bad to say it's all automated - I just need to scale it up.

    I do not promote ANY offers VIA Twitter. Only trying to get traffic from there to the blog and then letting the blog do all the work. I'm only saying this as an FYI and what is working for me and what I have extensively tested for my clients as well.

    With respect, it's not much info for me as I'm doing better without the blog than with it.

    You'd have to tell me more about your 'extensive tests' for me to learn anything - Like what kind of things sell for you.

    Autoblogs performs well on my side, even with adsense.
    The fact is that you can't totally rely on the software for your posts.
    I mean, you can't leave the wprobot, for example, to make all the work and you are completely blind on the kind of posts it makes every day.
    You should manually check every post, adjust it and then send to the blog engine for scheduling. I know this requires work, but this is what works now with autoblog

    my 2 cents :)

    Try this with a network of 50 autoblogs, posting 10-20 posts a day... kinda takes the fun out of autoblogs, no?
