    Ok so this is how I set up my autoblogs:
    Blog Setup:


    I use the following plug-ins:

    Add Meta Tags
    Follow me (twitter)
    Google XML sitemaps
    Keyword statistics
    List Category Posts
    Open in New Window
    Push Press
    SEO Beast (testing)
    SEO Search Term Tagging
    SEO Smart links
    Title Tags

    I have my 336x280 adsense blocks that are text only, matching my theme, lined up next to each other at the start of all pages and posts, between my first two title variants.

    General WP Robot Setup:

    I use Wordpress Robot. I only make use of article and press release functions, and of course RSS. I will go into setting up the rss later.
    I select the top 100 keywords using google wonderwheel scraper from CRAZYFLX. Then create a WPROBOT campaign for each category, and insert these 100 keywords.
    For every category, i have a separate article, press release, and rss campaign, so 60 campaigns in total.
    I also have Youtube, Yahoo Answers comments enabled on the posts.
    In my campaigns, I have the {keyword} token inserted with the link back to the category page of each category, So it will automatically create a link the category with one of the wonderwheel keywords as the anchor text.
    Together with this I use the best spinner integrated into WPRobot to spin all articles.
    With this, I remove all links in articles, but I do add "Reuter" etc in the beginning of all articles.
    RSS
    My Rss campaigns are set up just like the rest, but I use Yahoo pipes to turn the rss description into a full story, here is what the pipe looks like, it strips out html, and authors etc...ready to be spun by TheBestSpinner

    Pages

    I have my main site divided into 20 related categories. Each category with its own page and keywords.
    For every category on my site, I have a page www.domain.com/categorykeyword, I then use WP redirect to redirect my categories to these category pages.

    I insert the "list category posts" short code on the beginning of the category page, to show the most recent posts related to the category
    I also have my title displayed 3 times on these pages, One on the top, and then twice again with some variations like "check out these <title> now" and "here is other <title> examples"

    Posts

    I also have my title displayed 3 times on these posts, but different than on the pages, One on the top, and then twice again with some variations like "newest <title> for sale" and "read more about <title> examples"
    The posts do not have the list category short code.

    Authors

    I also have a couple fake author profiles, each post links to an author, and on the author page is a short bio and then use the following code to display the posts by the author, thanks to LUCKY

    <!-- The Loop -->
    <?php query_posts($query_string.'&posts_per_page=50'); ?>
    <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    <li>
    <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: <?php the_title(); ?>">
    <?php the_title(); ?></a>,
    <?php the_time('M Y'); ?> in <?php the_category('&');?>
    </li>

    <?php endwhile; else: ?>
    <p><?php _e('No posts by this author.'); ?></p>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <!-- End Loop -->

    Marketing

    I build Xrumer links to my pages
    Currently have Extrawinner and Bigbuddy doing the seo for the site.
    I also use Ezine articles from MrE
    I am about to get the monthly linkpushes from Basstrackerboats
    Other Tips

    Every post gets tweeted automatically using wp-> twitter, I then submitted my twitter RSS to as many RSS directories as possible.

    I also set up google alerts and inserted my URL, so I get an alert every couple hours when my backlinks are picked up or my site mentioned somewhere, this way you can also keep track of seo services. I can see when my autoblog makes posts and when the links get displayed on the rss directories.

    I also inserted the code for various topblog sites, to get more exposure.

    I set each campaign to post every 4 hours, posts aren't made for all keywords all the time so it results in about 30 posts a day.

    I hoped that helped some people here, please feel free to add or correct

    Very nice post, man. Btw - which is the 'title tags' plugin. Do you mean 'titles to tags?'

    Two further questions:

    Where do you add the {keyword} token in WP robot with the link back to the category...?

    Secondly, how do you add Reuter, etc in the beginning of all articles?

    Thanks for the great post Reinie. I saw several things I will be trying on my autoblogs.

    I'm especially thankful for the pipes screenshot!

    I noticed a big drop in my best producibg autoblog a few days before the last update was announced. My other autoblogs have seemed unaffected. So far I can't tell if I was slapped after a big SB autoapprove blast or the last update.

    I also tweet each post to a niche specific twitter account, but never even thought of using my twittter RSS. I feel stupid for not thinking of that since I always make sure to submit my blog RSS feeds.

    It is actually called "SEO Title Tag", it is not automatic, so i only use it for my pages and when i make manual posts.

    1. I add it in the campaign under TEMPLATE, in the post content box... usually something like:<a href="http://www.domain.com/catkeyword">{keyword}</a>
    You can put this in between other tokens if you use say articles and pressrelease tokens, I just put it at the end

    2. I set my pipe up to keep the Reuter in there, but removing the author bio,links etc. Or you can just add it in your template if you want?

    Some of my pages fell in rankings,(probably due to scrapebox and xrumer links) but I actually got more traffic to my posts, so no overall big difference. The current site I had in mind while writing this post, is still growing in visitors, by abour 30 visitors a day...went from around few daily visitors to 1000 daily since beginning of the year

    1.Yes, wordpress robot article puller and press release scraper...also from the RSS I mentioned (Yahoo news)

    After getting the articles, it is spinned using TBS. I plan to pay manual writer real soon. I always say start black hat to get the ball rolling, then go whitehat for long term.

    2.I currently only have three such sites, each such site makes around $80 daily with a very steady grow in visitors.

    Posts get indexed within a few hours, and I currently have around 3k pages indexed per site, just checked this particular site and it had visitors entering through 10,651 different keywords.

    I see what your saying, the 30 posts a day is around 1.5 articles a day per category.

    Do you also use WPRoboot?
    What kind of content do you use?

    I did not mention Global Translator, since I am having some issues with it and Google Sitemap Generated activated at the same time, but try it if you don't have GSMG
