    Would I be able to use my url with wordpress to make an autoblog? Is there a plugin I could use and will I get my adsense account banned? If you have any advice or can help me out pleas PM me.

    no, it's not a good idea to use adsense on an auto blog if you care about your account. It's only a matter of days to get you banned.

    It's а good idea іf yоu want tо make money, but remember thаt уоu'rе ripping somеоne elses work off аnd passing it оff аѕ yоur own. That's plagiarism and illegal.

    It's аlsо worth noting thаt the people whо make thesе "autoblogged" plugins sell thеm fоr extortionate prices. I personally would NOT run an autoblog, I like my content unique. If I caught ѕomeоne siphoning my articles to their autoblog and profitting from it, I'd bе sending takedown notices аnd talking to lawyers.

    That's the joke isn't it? Make plugins/programs for an oversaturated market to make money in that market? :rolleyes:

    The ironic thing about autoblogs is they're anything but auto. If you think it's a case of a plugin pulling in lots of articles, possibly spinning it and suddenly it works you couldn't be further from the truth.

    I've found that auto blogs end up causing more work than just sitting down and writing a blog with unique content. Autoblogs are a nightmare to try and rank and you're going to need to spend a lot of money on software like WPRobot or something similar and you're going to have to work twice as hard to rank it.

    By the time you've done this and spent the money you could have had someone write you some decent content and bought a backlink service on here. You can have success with an autoblog but I'm not convinced any more that they are worth the work and money.

    The main issue is marketing. IF you have the marketing power then yes.

    Autoblogs save time with site building but you still have to promote and market like a little machine :)

    Adsense tends to penalize people for non-unique content.

    ya autoblog is good idea if you have wprobot with the best spinner. Wprobot will post the content and spinner will spin the content. So Will be not so spammy in the big G eyes. And I just heard that when you post new content to your site new panda will get the new content and rank for some times and will dissapear but it will gives you some visiting to your site.

    A lot of things work including autoblogs. Eveything has its pros and cons. Reine has an awesome thread about AB ( if i rememebr correctly) and you can see that if you spare the time to create something different it will be valued. Just dont upload a couple of nulled plugins and expect the whole thing to work. Blackhat is not synonymous to being lazy and autoblogs is not an exception.

    Autoblogging was damn good. At the 1st half of 2011 I invested, say, $500 (domains) + 2 day-nights and that's it - no linking, no marketing. In a month these ABs would return investment and then kept rising, I thought I'm new millionaire, you know.
    Till the f-u-c-k-i-n-g panda came. Now since the beginning of August I dont earn a s-h-i-t.
