    Here's what I am experimenting on (I wont tell you the niche or site urls sorry):

    I bought two domains. The first one is an old, but dropped EMD with some back-links and the second one is a completely new domain hack with 0 back-links targeting to a specific niche.

    For the first domain, I built a clean and SEO friendly website with 10 pages of unique and good quality content, targeting a CB product.

    For the second domain i built an autoblog targeting a specific niche (which is targeted to US teenagers) and connected that with twitter and some of the bookmarking sites.I am posting 3-4 times every 3-8 hours which is gets shared to twitter, facebook and the other bookmarking services i had set-up. 70% of the content is not unique, but credited and 30% of the content is translated several times to make unique ( and credited too). I am posting a lot of images and using a trendy theme ;-)

    I did no SEO for both the websites, other than submitting to google webmaster and sharing via my social accounts.


    Result:
    For the first site, only 2 urls got indexed till now , which is pretty obvious. As for the autoblog I have over 400 indexed url despite of the domain being a new one. What is more shocking though, is the twitter follower I am getting with the autoblog. I did nothing for the twitter really (no marketing software, no bulk tweets, no followers ... nothing), except for the auto-tweets.

    Guess what? I got 4390 followers (which is increasing rapidly) in 2 days after the account creation. They are 90% real followers(at-least looks like). Near about 80% of them is US based teenagers, among which almost 70% are females( i got the stats from some twitter stat site). My site is getting 150+ UVs (not bots / spiders) a day despite of being nuts in google search.I will keep you updated with any new facts, if I get any.

    I hope it helps someone :)

    Do you think the whole process can be automated?

    Using WPRobot.
    It is totally automated. I have set all the things up and I am just watching the stats.

    I see. What I meant was do you think the whole entire process can be automated. The setup and everything. I build bots. If I understood the process we could maybe work on a total turn-key system.

    Your niche must be a very popular one to be having such results. I personally had something like that on twitter too. It's getting closer to a year now and all I had was 690 followers

    If an account is 'inactive' how can they follow him? I know there is bots but he's saying a lot of his followers seem legit...

    They are not bot for sure. Some of them have started ordering amazon products. Bots don't need that right?

    UPDATE: Twitter follower didn't increase too much after that. I have started getting odd amazon sales every day :)

    Ok I am revealing the theme. I am actually using a Pinterest Like theme in Wordpress. I am not sure if that has something to do with the sales, but it looks like it is...

    Why should you care about Google? Even if your website is not in Google search results you still have your own source of traffic.

    I knew this question was coming lol. I forgot to mention that I am also getting ~200 clicks per day from Search engines too (and they are increasing). It all adds up after all. Twitter traffic is just so unreliable!
