    I've decided to make a Jorunal for my Autoblogs. I was going to keep it to myself, but decided to post it up here, as it may help some of you. I'm pretty new to this, so maybe we can all learn :D

    Anyway -

    I have about 20 Autoblogs, but most likely going to delete all but 2 for now. (I've been trying different things, and think I may have found the best way for ME)

    Autoblogs v1
    I bought an e-book on how to make money with Adsense for Domains, and started using that guide, but changed it to make it Adsense for Content. It's taken me about 10 days to get indexed on most of them, while some are STILL not indexed.

    Then I found this great site and spent my 2 days off doing nothing but READING. Trust me, I've read hundreds of threads on here :D

    I then added a theme for each of my autoblogs. (Some crappy free ones) And that's where they sit now.

    Autoblogs v2.

    Like I said, I've been doing alot of reading here, and pretty much took a little from everyone, and mixed them together and also went my own way a tad.

    I've created 2 Autoblogs yesterday (2-14-2010) and they are BOTH indexed by g00gle!!! That was FAST!

    Plugins:
    All In One SEO Pack
    G00gle Sitemap Generator
    Do-Follow
    StatPress
    Twitter Tools
    WP DB Backup
    SpamFree
    WP-Videotube
    WP-Robot


    I'm using the above Plugins on my 2 newest Autoblogs, which seem to really be doing well!

    Today (2-15-2010)
    Autoblog 1:
    Visitors 46
    Pageviews 91
    Spiders 139
    Feeds 2
    Indexed 98

    Autoblog 2:
    Visitors 48
    Pageviews 117
    Spiders 101
    Feeds 6
    Indexed 14

    Adsense - 3 clicks ($0.16) <-- lol, BUT, they've only been up for a matter of hours)

    =======

    Why I think Autoblogs v2 is more successful then Autoblogs v1:

    On v2, I bought a .info domain, rather then the free co.cc domains I was using
    On v2, I've STUFFED LOTS of keywords into each site
    On v2, I've added a nice Ping List
    On v2, I've spent a LONG time on customizing each theme. (lots of Photoshop)
    On v2, Statblasted over 2,000 sites for Backlinks (don't think it actually helped...but yeah)
    On v2, Used a site found on BHW to submit my site to 700+ URL's for backlinks (It helped!)
    On v2, Created Twitter Account for each site, Installed and Activated "Twitter Tools", and have it "Tweet" all my blog posts. Already have followers on my BRAND NEW Twitter account.

    I think that's about it for now.

    If anyone has any questions or suggestions, please let me know. I'm thinking about updating everyday, if RL permits :D

    Thanks for reading.

    congrats on getting off the ground, now you just need to keep at it until you find the best way that works for you and then scale it up :)

    Congrats on taking action and detailing it here for others to learn and benefit from. The post I made about autoblogs was just that, I took what I learned here and applied it - now I too am sharing with others what I learned here.

    That's what makes BHW such a cool place.

    Kudos to you Humanseed

    Looks like my visitors are coming from Twitter, my other sites (which is weird because I don't have links to each other) and some backlinks

    I'll update numbers later on.

    Weird. :-/

    I have much less pages from Autoblog 2 indexed today, then I did yesterday. 44 yesterday, down to 13 today. :(

    Also, most of those hits are from spiders, and ping back from other sites I think. Because my g00gle Adsense account shows less then 50 page impressions. ugh...

    Sucks, because Ive been spending around 3-4 hours setting up EACH blog, and although its WAY to soon to get discouraged, but gee....

    12-16 hours and still only the 3 clicks from the first day of my journal, for only $0.16. Ouch

    My twitter accounts are getting more and more followers. (not a mad amount but I'd say probably about 10 a day) but no clicks.

    I'll keep working.

    Hi Humanseed,

    I read back through your posts but didn't see it mentioned (prob missed it) are your posts being Tweeted to your Twitter accounts?

    If so, what kind of follower numbers have you got? How often to you post? Or how many posts do you make in a day?

    0.16 for AdSense, yeah, that's never gonna pay the bills but how much AdSense have you got on the blog?

    Yeah, I'm using my Twitter accounts.

    They were BRAND new twitters though, and like I said, I'm slowly getting followers. (about 10 a day, spread out to all 4 twitters)

    I have on average, 4 categories, and i have wp-robot posting on each one, as well as WP-videotube posting on each one. I didn't want a TON each day, but I'd guess like maybe 8+ a day.

    I know it's only day 3 for my new strategy, but all together, I've had 4 clicks.

    3 for $0.16 and 1 for $1.86.

    OK, as your twitter accounts grow then so will the traffic too (obvious I know) and if you post more as they grow then you'll reach a larger proportion of those total followers which should lead to higher AdSense earnings.

    You can also experiment with diff ad blocks and placements too.

    Just carry on like your going, it usually takes a couple of months before a autoblog will take off, remember it's not something you can just leave easily, you should do some keyword research and start trying to rank for some long-tail keywords, these are the keywords which are going to bring you in the traffic, I've found after ranking for a few keywords, my blogs also rank for other long-tail keywords, without me doing anything, so I'm getting even more traffic, from even more keywords, which is pretty darn good. :)

    make sure you have webmasters tools for your blogs, take a look at where your blog ranks for some long tail keywords, or use analytics and see what keywords are bringing people to your sites, i guarentee most of them will be long tail keywords, then start doing some backlinking based on those keywords...make sense???
