How much can you REALLY make auto blogging? The Question Finally Answered I've seen far too many "how much can you make" topics in the Blogging section, a few days back, in the ************ IRC channel (#MakeCash), randomly a user came on (Forgot who, sorry!) and asked this question, me and another active user of the IRC channel (Sorry, forgot again!) answered the question and got into a small conoversation about the income from auto blogs. Before I even begin to factor in on your earnings with auto blogs, one of the main factors to your earnings, are niche and income method, I seem to think that far too many people ask the question about auto blogs, but really, there is hardly any differnce in auto blogs and normal blogs, at least there shouldn't be. Sometimes it can be a lot easier to find a good traffic source, if you know how to earn from your niche, certain niches will earn more easily then others. I know I'm not going into much detail yet, but trust me on this one. While I was researching auto blogging myself (Before I wrote this thread) I came across http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blogging/71968-autoblogs-what-you-might-missing-320-mo-1-autoblog.html topic, which was quite a interesting read. Same blog, same month, huge earning differnce. $6.70 (Something like that) Cooking stuffing $321.98 So that is something major to factor in, now obviously the amazon earnings are from cooking stuffing, which I am not going to go into now, but you really need to think a lot about if your going to start cooking stuffing, you can cookie stuff most things. Simple example, if you were running a blog based on web hosting, cookie stuff major web hosts, such as HostGator. I'm not going to go into it much more from there, but don't forget, nothings stopping you cookie stuff 100+ sites/at once (At least I don't think there is?) Okay great, income sources are out of the way, that was pretty simple, but not we move on to "auto blogs", I've seen a load of topics / posts on here from members saying/thinking you can simply set up a auto blog and it will generate traffic and the whole process takes a few hours if that, okay you can, but your really not going to be making decent income from that! If you don't already know, traffic is money, targetted traffic is better money, that applies to pretty much everything internet marketing. Setting up the auto blog is pretty simple when you understand how everything works, not going to go into it in this topic, but if you want to use adsence, you need unique content, so remember that! Once you've got content, thats great, but you can't do anything without traffic, so of course you need to factor that in. Sure you can automate traffic, I'm not going to lie, if you know how to promote on Twitter (Really isn't that hard) you can easily promote all your new posts on Twitter, if you go into in a bit more depth, you can promote all your posts on Twitter and get 24/7 traffic, you can even use software like HummingBird to get large amounts of targetted followers. Your not going to be getting decent income from Twitter traffic, yeah it's probably good traffic to cookie stuff, but it's not going to get you many clicks, so you really want to get traffic from social bookmarking websites, which can you semi-automate with OnlyWire and similar applications. The real money comes from traffic from search engines, if you want to get traffic from Google etc. You need to focous on SEO, link building, link wheels, etc. Sure you can automate this from out sourcing, heck you can fully automate it with the right start up money, software like xRumer, pro blog commenters and so on. So overall, making $1 per day on a single auto blog is totally possible, but honestly, your not going to be able to set up 1 auto blog, earning $1.00 a day in a hour, simply because its not going to have a load of traffic, you can out source everything you need to do by the way. When you set up a a auto blog, it should look pretty much like a normal blog, if it doesn't, then it's pointless, so just like running a normal blog, you need to do certain things to get traffic, improve rankings and just improve the blog. - Link building -- Link Wheels -- Blog commenting --- Blog commenter pro / whatever it's called. -- Forum postings --- xRumer Just all the general SEO stuff you'd do to any normal blog, without this, your blog is NOT going to be making $1+/per day stableably. Seeing as I just spent god knows how long writing this topic, it would be nice to see a decrease in the number of topics asking this bloody question, the answer is this, if you spend time on your auto blogs and build up links etc. You can make $xx/day/per blog and $x,xxx/month without any problems. Infact it would be possible to make $xx,xxxx/month with auto blogs with some time and effort. If you spend hardly any time working on you blogs, you'll be lucky to make $x/month.
