@blogmen mind sharing what kind of url slugs are you using for your articles?

I am under the impression this might affect indexing somehow. Trying to do some tests.

Nice journey and i hope you can keep up with it. Too bad there has been deindexing on your sites.

I'm having a inspiration on trying this kind but with AI generated content. Currently i'm working with python + gpt2 libraries and i'm having readable content regarding given word or sentence.

Also yesterday i managed to put together basic working script for it. I gave it 4 heading from where the first is always title and H1, rest are H2. It will generate content from the headings and will output these to html file that will be generated. As i read the about the cloaker it probably would not pass manual check but works for crawler. I have very little experience yet but i know there are also some paid services but those costs way too much for now.

With good cloaker redirecting to offer would probably be better than trying to work with ads. As with relevant keyword and offer the conversion can happen :)
But the next thing for me is automating this. From keyword getting related keywords, questions and seed words that will do the content generation. I also noticed that if i generate text from same text it will do duplicate content so i also would need to randomize variables little so even with same seed text it would generate different kind of text.

I've checked gpt-2 and I don't think it makes enough sense. Not for readers and not for ad platforms to approve (nor manual reviews).

Maybe you found a niche+template that gives decent results with gpt-2.

Let me know if you can get accepted by an ad network.

If not, might as well use gibberish + redirect.

Btw, my content is getting reindexed. Got 200 indexed pages for site 2 and 70 for site 3.

Good to hear those are getting indexed again. Are you getting clicks from serp?

The AI generated text currently is like from a novel. Couldn't use as product description but i think gpt-2 should be able to produce description like text. I can later give example from it. I left it generate bigger text to see what it looks like. Generating 5x 500 word texts takes about 5-10mins. It was set to do 5x 2500 word texts.

I think i have access to atleast 2 ad network. Can't remember the name of the other one. Then i have access to multiple affiliate offers. I haven't chosen any niche yet as i just randomly picked one and looked up 3 related heading texts to test generator.

I don't have domain for this but i would pick expired one that's niche relevant. Not big expense if i get domain for few euros and then use same hosting i have for other site.

Yes, clicks are back too.

Exactly. It can write a fantasy story, but even then, there would be weird stuff like the knight/hero dies in battle and then reappears in the next paragraph as if nothing happened.

Ad networks I meant adsense, ezoic and the typical display ads platforms.

Btw why you not using gpt-3? See niffo's reply in case you missed it.
If you want to kickstart the indexing
Thanks for your suggestion, I'm aware of Google API and GSC. But indexing is not an issue, it's reindexing related to google dance and indexers have no power over it.

Too new thing for me. Didn't know that gpt-3 is publicly available. I will try if i manage to get that working.

I have access to atleast 2 different ad display networks that i could use. Not in adsense or ezoic.

After testing the gpt-j-6B i think i don't have good enough computer to use this. I'm constantly getting not enough memory error. I have 16gb in total, about 13gb unused when i tested it. If goes full in seconds and after few minutes code crashes. Also 980ti vram is not enough to do cuda work. So.. back to gpt-2 i guess if i stick with it. I also was surprised that the gpt-j-6B required 25gb file to be downloaded.

Small update (dance isn't over)

Site 1: Back at index 7, although I received 1 click today.

Site 2: Back at index 10, no clicks.

Site 3: Index 120, I got the first click today.

Ok, so, let's get some input.

My case: 2 pages indexed(homepage, category page). GSC reports no clicks. Some stats plugin reports ~40-60 visitors from google daily.

Earnings from Adsterra back that info up. However, nothing indexed when I check with site:

Any similar experiences?

Also, on this note, I'm using Adsterra at the moment. Making around $0.7 from roughly 200UV/day. 99% are from google, bing, duckduckgo, yahoo search, ecosia, aol, etc.

Can you guys recommend a better ad network? I'm currently using 3 banners + popunder.

L.E. Content is just a bunch of meta descriptions + some links. So... not entirely garbage, but nothing of value.
