    Hi folks,

    Autoblog has become a HOT topic nowadays, I too jumped on the bandwagon, hoping to look for some money to fund my new house. Anyways, after a week of trying out autoblogging, I would like to summarise what I gained so far:

    Day 1 - 2: Installed wordpress, and other necessary plugins, looked and applied a nice and simple wp theme, and customised whatever required to make my first autoblog unique and nice.

    Day 3: Final touch up on the design, and started fetching and posting rss feed from sources of my choice. I made it a rule of thumb to post a max of 5 posts day. Meaning, I published a post every 4 hrs and 48 mins.

    Day 4: Continued posting but still disallowing search engines from knowing my blog. And, at the same time, trying to make the design perfect. I'm a perfectionist btw. I can proudly say that my autoblog even looks nicer than techchuck and mashget, and it loads even faster than any of them.

    Day 5: Unlocked my blog so that search engines could start finding my blog. I submitted to ONE social bookmarking site only, and got my blog indexed in less than 3 hours.

    Day 6: Total of 11 pages were indexed, including sitemap and privacy policy. Started inserting 2 adbrite ads and Infolinks (in single post page). I didn't wanna risk using adsense, and I've been making good money from my white hat blogs. And, continued my 5 posts/day strategy.

    Day 7: 10 out of 11 indexed pages were deindexed from google, and left one at the time of this writing. Earning = $0.00 with total visitors of <50.

    So, it seems like my autoblog is being deindexed by uncle G. And I feel demotivated. Should I continue what I've been doing OR 'cut loss' and get back to white hat? I'm fxcked.

    When I read the title I thought you will be saying here that you are making $*** with your autoblog, lol.
    I really don't understand why you locked your content from search engines? Maybe that's a wrong step.
    And don't try to be a perfectionist when it comes to autoblogs, just put a simple decent theme and you're ready to go. Don't lose too much time on design and stuff that doesn't really matter.

    It's only 1 day since your content was indexed then dropped from Google... I'd give it another week to see if they return... sometimes rankings for new sites tend to fluctuate a bit.

    I have no idea why I did the locking and unlocking. :p I can't, I can't simply make an ugly site and run. A better looking site normally makes readers stay longer which means higher CTR. I don't know maybe I'm wrong.
    So what should we do now?
    I think I'll give it another month to see if they do return, hope everything turns out nicely and profitable.
    Certainly, join my mailing list and purchase my ebook titled "How to get your blog indexed and deindexed by google in 2 days" - $97 please.
    Why don't you change your name? :D
