    i finally managed to set up my first autoblog. it took me a LOT more time than expected since i had to rely on google alerts. StumbleUpon wasn't working for me :( (still isn't. always takes me to recipe sites instead of tech sites)

    i dont have any ads there yet. in fact i am thinking of keeping it ad free and instead stuffing every dude who comes there. i needed some suggestions on what is better, but i suppose i can't discuss it here tho coz of the BHW rules. :eek:

    tell me what you think of it :
    Code:
    http://technologyngadgets.info/
    and don't afraid to go there coz it is still clean. haven't done anything to it yet :) no st*ffing.

    now all i have to do i put in a rediit/digg/buzz button to get some social traffic. and will be looking for other forms of traffic as well.

    let's see how it goes. maybe my beginner's luck will continue (have had a lot of it so far in my other ventures)

    and before i sign off, a huge thanks to BHW, and esp. ernestheming way for his detailed autoblog guide. really love you guys [​IMG]

    Make sure you put an .index.html file in you plugin and themes folder if you don't want anyone snooping around to see what tools you are using :p

    It's not working yet...

    Just checked:
    http://technologyngadgets.info/wp-content/plugins/

    Got:
    Index of /wp-content/plugins

    * Parent Directory
    * .index.html
    * akismet/
    * pingfix.php
    * simplepie-core/
    * sitemap-generator/
    * wp-o-matic/
    * wp-super-cache/

    Just correct the filename from:
    .index.html
    to:
    index.html

    and it will work...

    It's good and minimal - but maybe just toooo minimal - needs something else there - but not too much or it'd be cluttered....

    @niggles:thanks for visiting. i just made $5 from scamming another visitor.....

    lol just kiddin. i wish i knew how to do it that simply :D
    thanks for the comment.

    i will be editing the theme tonight or tomorrow morning so that the categories are on top where currently the pages are seen.
    will be adding a reddit/digg button to every post.
    will probably add some ads (adbrite. dont wanna risk adsense) if my other plan doesn't succeed.

    hope it will look better then.

    Hey PM maybe we could be buddies I'm just starting my way in this world too. I'm going to start trying and autoblogging so, but I only see me making money through probably st*ffing, I can't figure out any other ways since I'm assuming affiliates ect all frown upon autoblogs and its pretty easy to be pointed out?

    wow viriato !! i wish this stupid thanks button could be hit more than once...i would be clicking it for the next 20 mins :eek:
    the ping i used looks like a little baby compared to this mammoth! and thanks for the two plug ins as well

    do u have any idea about my other query: adding thumbnails on the homepage? :D

    (i am talking about something like this:
    www.laymanhack.c0m
    that is my other, legitimate, blog)

    EDIT: didnt find anything for privacy policy on the site u mentioned. got a few other good plugins from the other site. :)

    Dont forget to use the pinglist with a proper plugin like:
    Code:
    http://www.maxblogpress.com/
    Privacy plugin:
    Code:
    http://www.synclastic.com/plugins/privacy-policy/
    Not a clue on a plugin for thumbnails, i've one blog that uses a theme that grab a thumbail for each category, just google "mimbo download" - mimbo it's the name of the theme

    @viriato: isn't it enough to just put the list in the "writing" setting in wordpress? checking out the privacy policy policy plug-in

    will use the mimbo theme for my next autoblog i guess

    @black&red: the blog is as old as this thread....less than 24 hurs :p how much traffic do u think it is pulling in?lol

    I'd give it about 40-120 visits. At least that is what my blog's usually get in first day.

    well, to be honest i haven't dugg/reddit any post yet. will start doing that once i am convinced that the autoblog is complete, and functional. and there are no hitches watsoever

    once that is done, i start digging and submitting to reddit, buzzing up on yahoo and furling to see what works best. then i download all the plugins into one folder on my PC so i can mass-upload for my future blogs ;)

    right now i am on my way to add the duplicate posts plugin and the privacy policy plug in
