    In your opinion, how many feeds are too many too handle for a reseller hosting account? I'm not too keen on getting banned and was wondering if anyone had an estimate. I'm on hostgator btw.

    I have about max 20 feeds for each of my blogs... Lets say my server feels the pain :)

    Hey funk, thanks for replying. What type of hosting do you have?

    Right now my blog is set for chron job with 25 or so feeds and seems to be doing alright. Just wonder what's going to happen when I up that to 120+

    If I stagger multiple chrons over a particular time interval, I think that would do the trick. I was planning on updating sometime this week so just trying to find out a rough number to go by.

    I use one feed for each category so if it is a broad niche like say health then there are obviously going to be a lot of feeds and fewer feeds for tighter niches.

    I tend to try and keep my blogs alive by not overdoing it and promoting them too. It really surprises me how many so called experts out there say hammer the blogs and if they get banned so what just build another.

    This seems totally stupid in my opinion. With an extra 20 mins or so per blog you can make it virtually ban proof and reap rewards from it forever.

    Personally I set up my feeds so that they don't post more than ten times per day and I have not had a blog banned or deindexed in 2 years.

    I personally wouldn't suggest going over 50 with Host Gator, get to that point, then promote you blog as much as you can and see what happens, hopefully you'll be making a nice amount of money :)

    Thanks for all the advice guys. I'm transitioning a PopUrls clone to an autoblog, so far so good. The PopUrls clone was cool but traffic is definitely harder to come by with just post title text sitting on your page, lol.
