    Hello. I've been observing this forum(section) for a while.
    I have read you need to set up twitter account and get some rss feeds some keyword plugins and thats it...
    But I still have some questions, for example everyone seems to use wordpress. Is it possible(and suggested?) to do this with free-host etc. or should I buy host, if I should buy host which hosting I should choose ? I read I need quite big cpu for that bot stuff.
    So here is my questions,
    Were should I buy host?
    And most important question is, which I cant seem to find in any guides(except few link) where do you guys get that RSS address ? I mean you basically copy-paste a article right? Where you copy them from ? also how do you get hit anyway, I mean isnt the site that have original article becomes first result, then how do you get hits?
    And also what niche site means ?

    Thanks.

    I'm a newbie too, but I gotta agree with the others. If you don't know what "niche site" means, you should do a lot more research so you can understand what it is you want to do.

    only similar question I had with OP was if you could use wordpress on a freehosting site, but I doubt it. Im doing other things to earn a little bit till I can buy hosting and a domain.

    Yes, you can use WP on free hosts, but be prepared to deal with downage or account closings. A niche site is a site on a specific topic. When you set up your WP site, you can then get your sites rss feed from the rss insignia.

    Okay, try not to be mean here. You need use Google to search for RSS feeds it's real simple. Free hosting you get what you pay for it'll suck so forget it you need to use money to make money remember that.

    There are all kinds of article posters for WordPress there's WordPress robot there's RSS feed poster and that one will even spin the articles it brings to you if you buy the Pro version.

    There is count was articles written by me and 100 other people that tell you step-by-step how to do what you ask. You need to read a lot more.

    my 2¢

    no freehosts

    godaddy hosts is relatively cheap for starting and experimenting.. cheap experimenting definably beats expensive hosts for starting out...

    WordPress rss fees are at youdomain.com/rss/ ... so just add "rss/" to the end and youll have the link to the rss page...

    twitter rss backlinks they are all important but for dead zero starting first consetrate on making some quality content .. so find a subject you like and start writing content ... even if your first blog has low $$ value writing about stuff you like will give you a chance to get used to writing stuff people will read/share ... and even if your first topic has little to no marketability you can still use it to leach traffic over to a future site and/or use it as a portfolio site...

    oh and bhw .. and google are your friends read read read and youll start to get it ... good luck...

    no seriously, except niche site every question is pretty ok newbie questions.
    Thank you guys.
    You mean full with pro ?

    Btw, I get some plugin names and learned some stuff meanwhile. now the question is, which host I should buy from ? godaddy or hostgator ? Prices are pretty same and so. (also please tell me which package I should buy as a beginner, there is 6$/mo and 10$/mo ones and goes on...)

    It all seems very overwhelming at first. Luckily, it costs nothing to try and fail. I taught myself how to design and navigate blogger and wordpress and continue learning new things everyday.

    The first step is content. Choosing a niche (topic), setting up a blog and posting unique/relevant content regularly. Monetize with Amazon, Adsense or another program.

    Next would be promotion. Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, relevant forums and other sites are great for this.
