    It took me all day (8 hours) to set this sob up. I added basically the zillions of plugins on this site for wordpress. This is my first autoblog and its the root blog for this domain.

    What do you guys think? Am I missing anything? Also how do I get the adsense to be targeted towards my keyword: Art? All the adsense is about earning money and joining adsense.

    Any helpful comments, insults, compliments, anything would be so very much appreciated. Thanks guys.

    Is this really your first autoblog? Why are all your posts linking to NikhilG's website?

    No i think theres something wrong with the adsense since if i click on a page for a specific article i get an ad related to arts but on the main blog listing i get all ads about blog monetization like google thinks thats what its about

    Good job on your first autoblog. I would change the adsense color scheme to blend in with the wordpress layout.

    I would add one of those translator plugins so you can appeal to non-english speakers

    two things, what plugin creates those in post links pointing to other pages on your blog?

    and second, in CC edit the post template to remove that annoying [nickname asked:] shit. it looks stupid and I finally realized I should remove it from my autoblogs as well...
    goto your CC folder, then find templates, and edit default.p.txt and remove that shit.

    hope it helps

    Nice job.

    I would put something in the About page or at least take out the generic

    message there.

    You really do need to change that blue on blue color layout. It made my eyes

    water trying to read the text. Always go with a lighter color background and

    dark text or dark background color and light text (like here at BHW).

    Yep, just have to wait for adsense to work out what your website is really about so it can display relevant ads...

    Also, you might want to try blending your ads in with the background and removing the border, they stand out a lot...

    Looks really nice but I would suggest you to change your permalinks to /%postname%/ or /%category%/%postname%/ and ad privacy policy - you can use for this privacy policy plugin for wordpress

    Here is the color of your background #2a3d5f

    I had a few of the same ideas as mentioned here already, so I won't rehash it again. I would (and do) implement 'security through obscurity'. It at least stops the average person from being nosy.

    I have made my first autoblog yesterday, just like yours . But my site is just down ,cuz my site had used too many resouce of the host - -
    And linking back to Nikhil Gupta is just because you did not change the links in the CC plugin folder.
    change the links in the folder here: Caffeinated Content Management_v.335\links\links.txt(or links1.txt) , and also you could just delete the content in the txt files
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1
