    Hello all,

    This is my first post.I've been a lurker for awhile here and on some other forums, but can't seem to get my question(s) answered.I've even tried Google.
    Here is the scenario:

    I have 17 domains purchased last year to be used for Bans sites.I haven't done a thing with them and did not like the Bans script because I couldn't custoimise them to my liking.

    Now I'm using wordpress and trying to do this on my own from research.I want these to be autoblogs after some setup.

    What I'd like to do, is use Caffeinated Content for news & video, phpbay pro for Ebay ads.And I pretty much understand had to do this.

    I guess my biggest question is about article places, ie Ezine articles and others.What is the best way to use articles from these places? Of course you keep author info intact, correct? Is there a penalty from Google?Should these articles be changed? And then I've heard of a uniquefier WP plugin.Should I use this plugin with the articles?

    Please don't bash me:eek:. I just want to get these sites done and at least paying for their hosting fee.So that I can move on to other projects.
    And eventually I don't have a problem writing my own articles for these sites.

    Just looking for a fast way to slam out 17 blogs so I can move on...

    Any tips or advice would be really appreciated.

    Deanna

    1 Start today !
    2 download the free 15 day trial of power article rewriter
    3 then find an article for site 1 from ezine articles change about 30% using par and then its your own content really easy and quick - post it
    4 then same for site 2
    5 and so on through all 17
    Day 2

    lots easier now you can start at 3
    and by day 15 you will have plenty of pages on each site
    and at any stage you can throw in cc if thats what you are planning on
    Or you can fall into the trap that most of us do or have done and thats to just read everything thats posted in here and then realise our spare time for the day has gone and we are no further forward in reality.
    Dont get me wrong the info on here is invaluable but only if you act on it :biggthump

    Like boro says, yes start today! Take action, implement. Research is only the first step.

    There shouldn't be a penalty for using duplicate content. But it is generally better overall to have your content mostly unique.

    There are a couple of huge threads in this board which outline in depth on how to start your autoblogs. One of them is by NikhilG. Do a search.

    Ezinearticles is prob the best place to get content from, goarticles is also another good one.

    There are a load of rewriters available, prob the best 2 (from what I've read)are power article rewriter and unique article wizard.

    But, you have to start now.. get out of the analysis paralysis trap, I was caught there for ages.. now I only view articles and BHW whilst at work lol

    Thanks everyone. That's exactly how I feel-paralyzed, info overload, perfectionistic.

    Start and get something finished-that will be me.

    Again thanks,

    What are you using the Articles for? Are you trying to attract spiders to you phpbay pro auctions? Or.... something else.

    Spend a good bit of time on your first Blog. Then when you think you are done, spend another 2 hours tweaking it. After you have a basic format down FTP copy your website, erase your WP-CONFIG file and upload to the new domains.

    I believe that the uniquefier WP plugin screws up PHP pro. If I'm wrong on that, can someone please correct me. I wouldn't sweat duplicate content. Just don't duplicate content on your site and you will be fine.

    Hi Predayshus,

    I am just trying to get these blogs populated with content so I will have at least accomplished something.

    I want to move on to other projects.:D

    So you think articles would be okay to use for this purpose?

    Articles work fine. As a matter a fact, you definitely need to have some content surrounding your auctions. G will delist your sites if you don't. Problem is.. unless you do it right ;) you're going to be doing a hella-lot of work by hand. The copying and pasting will drive you nuts. Heck even the defining the tag will get out of hand quickly. Make sure this

    Code:
    <?php
    $keyword = the_title("", "", false);
    $text .= '[phpbay]' . $keyword . ', "", "", ""[/phpbay]';
    echo phpBayPro($text); 
    ?>
    Finds its way into your theme. Like I said before, make sure you have a solid format before you go to blog number 2. After you set it, don't change it. The last thing you want is a bunch of half assed blogs with 99% of your traffic <5 secs.

    Hi Predayshus,

    Could you take a newbie by the hand and explain a little more.

    Put the code you mentioned into my theme. I see it is php.

    So do I copy the code into the theme template somewhere? And do I add anything where the quotes are?

    Please advise,

    Deanna

    Yes, I would put it in your theme's Single.php. Your format, that will decide what you put into the quotes.

    I'd recommend you make use of the PHPbay widget as well. :)

    This post kinda spoke to me because I'm in the same boat as the thread poster. However, I have managed to get a few sites up but adsense is pennys and I'm feeling like my niches isnt lucrative enough. I would like to get into associated content but I think I made a huge mistake. I was following the thread by SHAQ and he said to get it from pirate bay. SO I went to pirate bay but I had to pay fee of about $38. This allowed me access to files and I got 360Pro. Now I dont even know which file is the right one when I search. I need help on this please. Whats the size of the file? Some vary. One is about 100K and others are < 3K. Please help me with this mess.
