Is it possible to make a blogfarm/adfarm using only free WP blogs?

    I know WP allows you to put adsense on your blogs. Is it possible to do it entirely on free hosted blogs rather than having to buy hundreds of domain names?

    If so, will google allow it (assuming it's "legit" and not recycled or stolen content)? Is it just a matter of adding your existing adsense code into the new blogs?

    Yes it is possible, however it is difficult to setup autoblogging because very few of these hosts allow you to upload plugins...

    Agreed. If you're looking to make autoblogs for free you should use Blogger instead of Wordpress. Easier and faster as well with a much better interface and HUD.

    Ok, so blogger instead of WP.

    More questions:

    1. Does it have to be done via autoblogging?

    2. I have adsense on one site that I've been using for months. Will google be like "wtf" if they suddenly see my account pop up on 10s-100s of new websites?

    3. I am familiar with the concept of mininets, but it seems to me that if you're using blogger or that type of thing, you can't really generate many links to your other sites because Blogger and WP type blogs put all blog posts on the same page, so instead of each site having many pages, each site has essentially one (long) page with all the blog posts on it. So is there any reason to link from one adblog to the next?

    Oh I forgot to ask, do I need a separate email address for each blog? Probably not, right? I mean goog's goona know they're all mine anyway since they have the same adsense ID...

    test test and test. make sure to have multiple adsense accounts if you are going to go bold with the efforts.

    If you're using the same adsense acct id most likely your under performing blogs will cause google to smartprice all your blogs so even your decent blogs will make pennies per click.

    ^ I thought smartprice was on a per-site basis if you were getting too much non-targeted traffic.

    Ok last question before I begin:

    How are people getting multiple "pages" on their blogs? WP and company put every post on the same page, so even if you have 100 articles, your blog is still only one "page" long.

    Also, say you're blogging about Acme Widgets. Say you want a few articles on your page, like "Basics of Acme Widgets," "Which Acme Widget is right for you?" "5 things to watch out for when Widget shopping", etc. Don't you need to keep releasing content to stay on top of the SERPs? So if you keep publishing new blog posts, then your original ones with good information will be knocked down to the bottom of the page. I feel like an "article site" with each article on its own page would work 100x better, but that's not how blogger and WP work. So what's the solution here?

    Thanks.

    Oops guess I can't edit my previous post.

    Anyway, I guess this has to be done with blogger, huh, as WP.com doesn't allow adsense on their sites.

    Well Blogger limits where you are allowed to put ads (you have to use one of their "monetize" layouts. So that sucks cuz you can't get ads above the fold then.

    Any other ideas for adsense on free blogs?
