    This post is just to let you know what I am doing.

    I didnt know anything about Auto blogging 3 weeks ago. I paid someone on here some $$ to create me a auto blog. Still todate I have not had any adsence clicks :( even tho yesterday I have 16 veiws, with 98 in the first 10 days of Feb.
    Expected? Who knows.

    This blog has been made all around 1 keyword. I was told it was a great keyword.

    So anyway 5 days ago I made myself an auto blog with a domain that I have had for a while. this domain had 1 page on it which really was a page to collect names for an affiliate product that is due out in a few months. No one name was collected. I thought "stuff it, I will turn it into an auto blog to learn.
    When I showed someone from here this blog they said it wasnt a very good niche to be in.. Oh well it was a test blog to learn so I wasnt worried.

    This blog as about 6 categories ( with are high searched keywords).
    I used CC to pull articles and comments.

    Well checking stats just now I find I have had 41 visits from countries like Japan, United States, Australia, Germany, Sweden, Canada, Russian Federation.
    Also have had Page impressions with 1 click of 61 cents.

    this is on day 5 only.

    SO.... creating a blog with multiple KW (KeyWords), I believe, is far better than 1 KW.

    So now I am off to find a niche with 6 or 10 good keywords to make a new blog.

    Oh and am going to add more keywords to the first blog I had made...

    SO keep going and make some blogs....

    Now I need to learn how to find the best keywords..
    Any help there??

    Yes, hello this has nothing to do with keywords.

    Did the person who set up the blog: do any SEO to it?

    Because chances are google doesnt even know that you exist. Also you should never pay for such a thing, it only take 5 minutes to set up autoblog.

    What you must do, is read the guides here, they tell you to submit blogs to RSS/Web 2.0 sites, blog directories. You must do that to get higher google rank.

    As for keywords, yes you must always do research, search the forum for tutorials.

    I've created my first autoblog in the middle of january, it was setup to learn about autobloging so I wasn't expect much traffic or revenue from it. I've made couple newbie mistakes like choosing very competitive niche. But I've ended january with 31 visits from Google and 4 or 5 adsense clicks in the 0.15-0.22$ range. I was checking my stats from february and I have already +90 visits from Google with $1.89 revenue. I've also switched today theme and added 2 more ad units so I expect that it should improve revenue. I will keep an eye on this for the next 2-3 weeks trying to improve ctr and traffic, only than I will move to creating more blogs. I think you should also concentrate on the two blogs you already have for at least couple weeks - it will help you avoid mistakes when you will be making more blogs later.

    Funny... AutoBlogs...

    I've been creating autoblogs for YEARS.. and they're difficult to get going.. but once they're getting traffic, they're golden!

    I have some getting 1000+ visits a day now, making good money not from adsense.. bah adsnse.. but from affiliate products...

    But yes autoblogs work, but they're not a set it and forget it in the begining... you need to get it established first with content, good content and lots of it.. and backlinks, lots of backlinks.

    That's the biggest problem for me, I become lazy and not want to do backlinking, but it's the only way to get a website moving.. without it you'll stay with your 20 visits a day blog..

    Good luck, it's not as easy as it seems.. but long term it's worth it! :)

    Of course it has everything to do with keywords. without keywords you dont get visits etc.
    The only seo I have done to the blog I set up is the SAME as what was done to the one I paid for. AND as I said I paid for it BECAUSE i didnt know anything. So I did learn from it and so paying for it was an investment.

    You could say dont pay for anything, however we dont all know it and learning from others whether we pay or not is a way to learn.

    If Google doesnt know my site exists, then how do I get with 98 views in the first 10 days of Feb. I never told anyone and it wasnt me that viewed them.

    Yes, Ziekak, you must learn about backlinking. You have to put hard work into them, nothing is Set and leave.

    Backlinking and SEO is hardest part, you must promote your website so that google can rank it higher.

    If you do keyword research and pick a niche where you have stable, high average searches for the keywords, and you rank page 1 for 1 of these, you will be sweet.

    EDIT2:
    Man, really you can learn by reading some tutorials here, Explaining everything step by step. It seems you havent done much SEO and just let blog do it itself by ping crawls. If you submit ur links to high PR directories, especially WEB 2.0 and Blog directories you will see BIIIIG result.

    Just for you, here is step by step what u must do:

    Go to google: sign up for google webmaster tools.
    Submit your website to Millionrss.com (instant backlinks)
    Ask questions on yahoo answers, and answer them with your link, and after 2 -3 days, pick ur answer as the best.
    Submit yuor website to Digg, Stumbleupon, facebook.
    Go to digg, find popular Diggs and put ur wbesite link in the comments.

    He means signing up to a CPA network (comission junction), they will pay you money if a custumer buys something/signs up for sumethign through your website. usualy you put up niche-related offers on your website i.e: free trial!!! And you get like 5$ per sign up.

    I guess the problem with a place like this is that there is a lot of information, but it is not easy to find. When someone comes along and asks a question etc, you get lots of people thinking they know it all and saying, "do a search for it" "Read the blogs in here", read some tutorials here"

    As kingbrend says "it's not as easy as it seems.. but long term it's worth it!"
    you hit the nail on the head. it is not easy.

    So people instead so giving dead ended advise, point people in the direction of other posts or give your way of doing it. Be helpful.

    I speak for all the noobs or newbies in here....

    Dude you are full of shit. Look at your join date and look at mine. I started autoblogging 2 weeks ago: from scratch. I went over all the tutorials on this forum, all the tips and tricks. Made a plan and executed it.

    You on the other hand, just want short cuts, you want ppl to point you to the direction. To take you by the hand and lead you there because you are too lazy to do it yourself.

    Now if you had any intellect, you wouldve search Autoblogging, and found 3 different/rescent tutorials, one of which LITELARLY takes your hand and guides you, LITELARLY the guy explain EVERY step with prescion that even a monkey can do it.

    I've been making websites for 5-6 years so building backlinks isn't the problem. I've just never had an autoblogs, so that's the area I'm trying to learn more about, to make it automated as much as possible and see what is working and what is not - to not make the sams mistakes later with other autoblogs. Sure everybody can setup hundreds of autoblogs in few hours but what is point of this if they will not get any traffic or revenue, it's better to focus on one or two first and just when you will learn and know what you are doing move to creating more.

    If you create a Autoblog from a HOST which has a site (manually that you build)
    and if the autoblog say gets some problem due to BIG G problems... does it also effect your main site in anyways??? As in cuz its the same host hosting both your sites..??

    Well what a hero you are. A newbie who knows everything. And thinks his shit don't stink.
    It appears all you do is poke shit at others for not being as superior like you.
    You are exactly the type of person I was referring to. Crawl back into your hole.

    5 minutes? Not even close. It takes 5 minutes alone to setup the install and upload the files--and heck, what about finding an appropriate or decent theme? It takes at least an hour if you know what you are doing, more if you don't. It's more than just 'install wp, install auto-content generator, install seo plugin' so it SHOULD take more time. It does have to do with keywords in the sense that you want your content to be keyword rich, and I always go the extra mile to make sure the categories are just as keyword oriented and of course the setups on the seo-side. I think the mate was moreso saying not to build a single autoblog on one primary keyword but to rather have multiple keywords.

    eta: @OP Mate, you need to really invest time in creating your autoblogs. If you are just throwing stuff up to see if it sticks, you are going to get nowhere. Now, I don't mean days on end, but a good hour or two will produce a very nice autoblog that people would hardly know is such and will produce traffic almost instantly. Search the forums and you will see many people earning within the first few days from just one blog and others that are earning nicely with their farms. I wish this subject would go under a rock so for less competition really lol. [yeh I know I posted a step by step but I clearly wasn't thinking] But really do not think that making 100+ blogs with 'more keyword categories' will do it for you lol. That my friend I believe is a fluke [it happens from time to time] =P

    What are you talking aobut? It only takes 5 minutes to set up an autblog: set up the directory on ur desktop< with all the plugins and themes in it.

    Now all u need to do *start timing":
    Install WP via CP/Upload (1 minute), upload the directory (1 minute), whilst uploading, start setting up ur blog: i.e titles, meta kw etc.

    2 minutes past:
    Enable CC and Platinum SEO plugins (free if u search forums), enable ping crawl. Enable Privacy Statement plugin.
    Go pick the theme: you should aways have themes ready, themes like ProSense and Flexibility which are integrated with adsense.

    3 minutes past:
    Cope and paste your google adsense publisher ID on the Theme Editor.

    4 Minutes past: Enable Affiliate WP, if you are doing CPA too.

    5 Minute: check ur blog front page, check no errors and everything is fine.

    Job done? Now what are you saying? Thats it, your autoblog is set up and ready to go, it will autoping google and other SE's when you post, and each time you post.

    But: as I was saying before, and you ppl didnt listen: If you want to make it big, you need to do SEO yourself, you can do this by submitting to WEB 2.0, RSS, TopSites, Link Directories, Running PRStorm moderately for referrer backlinks. Setting up a Sitemap via Sitemap XML Plugin, and uploading to google.

    As for you nonhacker, you keep saying that I am a newb, yes I am a newb on these forums. It took me 1 week of learning about autoblogigng before I could do it that efficiently. I read all the tutorials on these forums, I downloaded and tested all the plugins and in turn I saw the advantages and disadvantages in some. I might be a newb, but I take initiative to get work done.

    You on other hand, are much more older member than me, you asked a very very COMMON question, which has bene answered 1000+ times on this forum. Offcourse people told you, go search. Now dont complain about that, it is your fault alone that you are lazy. At the end of the day, you wont get anywhere unless you get off your fat ass and start doing some work.

    Theres no such thing as free money, theres work involved in everything, including searching the forums and personal research.

    your such a hero. go play somewhere else. Your like a bad smell. Maybe if we ignore you, then you will go away.
