    multiple autoblogs "attached" to one domain only? I mean, I have xpto.com domain and then I create a blog about cooking, then if I want to create another do I have to buy another domain or can I work on the same one?

    Thank you

    You can, just put it in a new subdomain or in a new folder.

    So the subdomain would be called myblog.xpto.com or if I create folder how would it be?

    Thanks

    myblog.xpto.com/
    or:
    xpto.com/folder2
    xpto.com/folder3

    Remember though subdomains are treated as separate domains when it comes to search engines.

    Leprakkhauns: Which one would you recommend...new domains or sub domains? New domains cost $7.99 or so PER A NICE .COM or so but sub domains are totally free.

    Any pros and cons here?

    .com would probably look a bit more respectable. Subdomains would cost less. Probably some SEO stuff that I don't know as well.

    .coms would be more professional looking. I use subdomains for my stuff though.

    Yes, good question.

    And Leprakkhauns so I should choose a random domain name and not one related to my blog right? Because if I wanna talk about phones the link would be phones.cooking.com right? And if it was by folders? how would it look like?

    Thank you

    Even though subs may look unprofessional, doesn't it seem its better because I can create 200 autoblogs right now about any niche.

    cooking.com/phones would be if you did a folder.

    So since I own bl0g.org, I should be good setting up bl0g.org/diabetes and have articles all about diabetes and get good $$$ from adsense once visitors starting coming, right? (Since health words are high paying)

    Home Page:
    blog.org is a really nice domain to own and to have at your disposal for creating just about any subdomain because it's so generic.

    It's with a 0, not a o though. That's not a problem, right?
