    I need some advice/comments on this site I recently made using WPMU:

    The sites have:

    Been Online ~ 1 month
    Daily Uniques ~ 15 visitors

    The marketing method I am using is WP AmaNiche (automated Amazon content scraping to posts) and Peerfly ads (on right sidebar).

    I simply want to monetize these sites and looking to optimize my methods.

    I already know that the domains I picked have broad keywords and not targeted. The SEO questions I had is how I can get them to rank faster. Should I just focus on throwing unique content on there for now? Social bookmarking? Blasts?

    I don't mind negative critiques as long as they're informative and on point.

    get some more unique content on there and get some good backlinks.

    to get traffic maybe think about creating some blog posts relating to your niche and posting it on some social networks.

    a good example of this is okcupid and their "stats" posts with catchy titles that pull in the traffic.

    also personally i wouldn't include social bookmarking on the home page, stick it on the post pages only.

    In my experience, you will not see much traffic until the auto-blog is 2 to 3 months old.

    My blogs usually start off with 0 to 10 UVs the first several weeks. By week 6 they start to take off slowly.

    If you have a good niche you could see 500 to 1K UVs daily.

    One of my best blogs (about 1K UVs after 3 months) performed so badly the first 6 weeks I almost deleted it. One day it took off and has be my best money maker to date.

    My advice, be patient. :)

    Look pretty good. But what do you make money on? Its looks like you just have some books reviews and no ads or anything.

    New autoblogs generally do not receive much traffic until their authority has been established. This happens in 2-3 months. After that you will see your work paying off
