    I have noticed this method starting to decline so I thought ill share it with you guys so hopefully one of you will twist and carry the flag ;)

    Basically this is NOT rocket science but it does end up being a pain in the arse after a while so I decided to close the sites and keep the Google cheque!

    What you need:

    1: Ability to install wordpress and a host
    2: A domain
    3: I had great success with the theme Elements of SEO 1.2 which you can get here http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/elements-of-seo

    Anyway, first I set up the wordpress and set it to allow everyone to sign up and post as a author

    I then set up these plugins :

    404-to-start so I can delete crap posts without the worry of 404 pages as this redirects the page to root

    Quick Cache - Self Explanatory

    Recapture - Slows the posts down

    SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2 - Turn of the linking thing though

    Best adsense

    WP Mass Category Creator - I took the categories from ezine and dumped them into this plug in (this was made by Scripteen on here)

    and the normal stuff like sitemap blah blah

    Anyway fast forward!

    Adsense set up : I made sure I have a adsense block showing twice in the post, one under the first paragraph and one just above the last paragraph, I also had a single adsense block on right hand side, I think this is sidebar 1 on the theme!

    I took the time to make the ads look nice with the site!! This is the key!

    Once I have set everything up I simply added the domain to article marketing robot and let you guys do the work!

    The first month was a few hundred dollars and this month has already hit that target but its now starting to drop!

    This all sounds easy but it gets tricky and I got a warning from Google adsense about linking to copyrighted content!

    To protect my adsense account I simply used a plugin called WP No External Links that stripped out all external links and then installed a plug in called Word Replacer and WordSpinner and told it to change any posts with the words "watch season" or "watch series" to something else, this helps you stay under that google radar!

    Traffic is 1k-4k daily and makes $x-$xx daily but this is dropping hence me now moving on!

    The good thing about this is that you guys do all the backlinking for me, I didn't have to do a single thing to it after being installed!!

    I hope one of you guys can twist this and carry on ;)

    edit: I have just scrapped all of the emails from the authors and about to send a couple of CB offers to see how that turns out but I close the lid! Might as well hey?

    This is great advice.

    If you said you are moving on, I would be interested in purchasing your site.

    Maybe that is why you hurt your adsense earnings? People do article marketing for the links, when you go stripping them out, they stop submitting to your domain, stop building backlinks to it and therefore, traffic slows down. I could be wrong though but I love the idea and I'm going to use it in the near future for a project I got going on.

    Nah with amr it just tells authors if the article is live no if it's linked ;)

    I know that most of you won't bother to run the article through a link checker and you kept linking because you saw a live post not a live link, i just played the game

    I think it was a combo of panda, a manual adsense review and me not being arsed

    The site was a test for a coupe of things and wasn't built to make money but when I noticed it did, I simply rinsed it

    Well you used to be able to add your own to public lists but now you can't ;)

    My current suggestion would bring loads of work for someone else so Ill leave you to work it out!

    Lovely..

    But tell me - Didn't AMR blasts kill your bandwidth?
    How can you block it? Once you are in you get hundreds and thousands of submissions per day... It kills your host very quickly doesn't it?

    Were you on a shared host?

    I like the idea... Wish the AMR thing still worked. There has to be something to replace it.

    Nice.. Sharing! :)

    I think one can scale this up and add their site not only to AMR but also to article marketing automation, unique article wizard, and many other article marketing services that allow people to submit their sites for receiving articles.

    I was thinking of a list of sites or places or services that would allow article writers to submit articles to our article sites.

    Are maybe a list of article software companies that would add our sites into the directory of sites to submit too. :)

    Not sure if I am making sense here. If not just disregard... I might need more coffee. LOL :)
