    Set it up and got indexed by Google. Any comments or suggestions? Anything I should improve on? Using AutoBlogged with a free theme.

    Targeting bl0g.org towards things related to blogging.

    Congrats on your 1dt autoblog. Looks very clean, doesn't look automated at first glance, which is good. I recommend you place large square ads inside your post instead on the sidebar, experimenting has shown me that ALL of my clicks where from 300 x 250 square ads inside a post.

    I tried your suggestion, but it was sticking out of the page by a bit. Any other possible recommendations on that? Or anything else?

    Don't stream from that RSS feed, it's cutting 90% of the info - you won't get indexed like this.

    I think it's clean and tidy, I like the look of it. I personally use Artisteer to create blogger templates for my autoblogs.

    Recently I've been using the blogger platform more than Wordpress with a free autoblog script I found on here.

    The only things I would suggest are renaming your "uncategorized" category to something like "general" and maybe changing the colour of the adsense background to blend in with your page and get rid of the adsense border. I think the suggestion by adamnemo about the 300 x 250 ads is a good idea too.

    you have got a nice autoblog man. And the coolest thing is your name. bl0g.org. hahaha.

    Ya as previous poster said change your uncategorized category to general. Also try showing some related posts at the end of each post.

    You can also use "no follow external link" plugin to hoard page rank on your blogs. It might not be of any great help but hey it never hurts.

    Very nice. I'm in the process of starting my own autoblog and realize how hard it is going to be to get one that is good and makes sense. What are you using to pull in content? Right now I'm not getting along with Caffeinated Content... it's not even pulling in English articles!

    Are you sure, your are using it the right way? I am using cc3.35 and it works like charm. I fetch up the articles, Yahoo answers and videos for one year in one go. What cud be easier than this? If you are getting any error msg then post it, some body might be able to help you.

    Thanks.

    How would I add more images (and were talking in posts, right?)

    The feeds I get it from don't have that many images (if any) in their posts. Any idea

    Your autoblog's, looking really good, if you want to pull FULL articles, use http://www.thefreedepot.com/ it wont work for ALL rss feeds but about 85% should be good(test it out)

    Hope this helps

    blend the google ad above the posts [background=#EEEEEE link=#003366], better meta information, either prefix all your posts with 'blogger' or something blog related or change your permalinks or categories ['general' is not a necessary kw in your links], add vids/images [something to PULL the readers in...it's a little bland right now]...it's nice; play around with the ad sizes though--those banners look nice and all but the blocks sometimes better ct


    drive traffic. that's all you really need to do if you are going on adsense alone, but i'd recommend adding amazon too. amazon pages and posts and banners; will earn you more.
