    I just recently got into autoblogging and today I had my first $20.00 Adsense day!

    I have 3 blogs, and I'm really pleased with the results.

    I've been told by a friend that my results are above average for just starting 2 weeks ago.

    I just wanted to share a little of my system in the hopes that it may help others.

    Website:

    I use Wordpress for all of my autoblogs. It's the only choice as far as I'm concerned. The SEO is so much easier than static websites and they are easy to edit.

    Articles:

    I only use 2 sources for my articles.

    The first is a plug-in called Unique Article Wizard. This will give you high quality articles that are screened by human mods. The second is a site called Free Traffic System.

    Free Traffic System is an awesome article marketing site where you can submit articles with 2 backlinks and get them posted to up to 30 Wordpress blogs.

    On the other hand, you can also submit your blog and get free articles posted to your blog. Again, these are high quality articles screened by human editors. Both services are free and they run on autopilot.

    I belive that the quality of the articles and the fact that the whole article is posted instead of an excerpt is helping my SEO, as I have already seen some organic search engine traffic (not much, but the blogs are only 2 weeks old).

    Now, in order to get accepted to Free Traffic System you'll have to have 8 or 10 articles on your blog already, so post some of your old articles or PLR to get started.

    Now for plug-ins:

    1. Onlywire Autposter: This is a biggie. I have a premium Onlywire account (only $3.95 per month-well worth it), but you don't need one. This is bringing in at least 40-50 uniques per day already (mostly from Facxebook and Delicious). The key is to get accounts at all 43 bookmarking services for max traffic.

    2. WP KeywordLink: This is an awesome plug-in. It allows you to set up affiliate links with certain keywords, and it will automatically insert affiliate links where the keywords are in the blog posts. I've had 2 Clickbank sales from this already. I recommend you set up a redirect to cloak the affiliate links. I picked 5 good products that related to my niches and set up 5 keywords for each.

    3. Google Analyticator: Obviously you'll want to know where your traffic is coming from and how much.

    4. XML Sitemap: Helps all of your posts get indexed quick.

    5. Contextual Related Posts - Interlinks your posts for SEO.

    6. Sexy Bookmarks - Awesoem plug-in so others can share your posts.

    7. CommentLuv - Helps attract comments.

    Theme:

    I use a very simple and easily customizable Adsense theme. You can also put Clickbank hop ads in easily if you aren't into Adsense. I shared the pack of 30 themes that I work from here on the forum, and here's the thread:

    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/templates-themes/231503-get-30-nice-adsense-wp-themes-very-customizable.html
    Now, the themes aren't the greatest looking, but they are attractive and you can easily customize the header with Gimp. They are really great for newbies.

    I hope I've helped. My Adsense revenue has steadily been rising, and today it hit the $20 plateau. The past week it's been steadily rising $1-$3 per day.

    Also, you'll want to pick a niche that has high paying keywords. I'm not going to reveal the niches I'm using, but you can find some good ones that don't have a ton of competition if you do a little good old fashioned keyword research.

    It's important to note that I have not done anything for traffic or backlinks except Onlywire. If I put some SEO in like Scrapebox or something I could probably do a lot better, but the idea is to not work and set up more blogs. My goal is for each blog to make $10 per day on it's own with very little maintenance. All I want to have to do with these is go in and delete the spam comments from time to time.

    If anyone has any questions, feel free to PM me.

    So with autoblogs, how do you get the articles to be unique? If you're using a plug in that gives you articles, it means someone else has used them? Isn't this bad if google sees your content is not unique?

    cjmo75,

    Congrats for hitting $20 a day with Adsense.

    You have mentioned onlywire, when it makes autoposts to 43 to bookmarking sites,
    many times it(Onlywire) failed with few sites to make autopost, then still you
    reccomand Onlywire?

    How many articles do you set to publish on blog daily from UAV & Free traffic system?

    Thanks for sharing your method.

    Great results after just two weeks.

    The plugins you use are fairly standard so I'm figuring your niches must be exceptional.

    Ummm. No, that's absolutely not true.

    I'm not going to post a picture proof, because those can just be altered and it proves nothing. However, yesterday my eCPM was $65.87 and I earned $22.50 on 18 clicks. That's an average of $1.25 per click. I had 342 total page impressions for a 5.26% CTR. There were 108 total visitors from 18 different sources. If you compare page views to vistors, you can see that people are looking at more than one page. Average time on the site is 3 minutes and 42 seconds. That's a good indication that the better quality articles are making a difference.

    When you do the proper research and find a great paying keyword that's not hard to get good search engines rankings for, that equals cash.

    Again, I have found a great keywords for two of my blogs that is already bringing organic search engine traffic.

    I'm not going to reveal what they are, that would be foolish. All I'm going to say about it is that they are not hard to find if you know how to do simple keyword research.

    As far as articles, each blog is receiving 15-20 articles per day (400-600 words average) from the 2 sources.

    As far as the duplicate content issue, I'd say 95% of autoblogs are duplicate content and there are no penalties for it. That's a myth.

    Well, I know one of my niches is definitely a winner. One is internet marketing and one is get your ex back, and those are fairly standard. However, the blog that's bringin in 50% of the revenue and traffic is the other one, which I'd rather not disclose. I think I hit a gusher with that one.

    Also, I've put 2 opt-in forms on each blog and they have been bringing me a few leads. Not many, but some.

    Sure, they are autoblogs, but my idea is to provide a good looking blog with decent content. I spent some time looking at the average autoblog before I started this, and mostly they are pretty crappy. The majority of them don't have the full post, and many only have an excerpt.

    I feel you have to look past the Adsense revenue. Sure, that's what you're in it for, but you also need to take advantage of all of the other benefits the blog can provide, like leads and Clickbank revenue.

    The keyword plug-in I'm using is probably my favorite. It automatically inserts affiliate links into the post, and I've changed the link color so they stand out from other links. I think this has resulted in several extra clicks. Hey, if they don't want to leave via an Adsense ad, why not have them leave via an affiliate link? Either way, it's win-win for me.

    Nice results there. Have you done any other SEO or backlinks building on the sites? Are the domains exact matches?

    very nice method.
    do you do onpage optimization of every blog post as well by adding high paying adsense keywords in each one of them?

    Great to see. I am also making a semi-autoblog. Just spend some hours to inserting 50 articles and other things to post on my blog for the rest of the week. Just using different publish times. After that I spend most of the time building links and submit my articles links to socialbookmarks etc. update my rss feed. And so on. Already have a Twitter plugin that post an update automaticly to my account when I published a new article/post.

    Good luck, and keep hitting more keywords or make more blogs.
    Quality over Quantity I prefer ;)

    Hi

    As I know the UAW and free traffic system, You have to leave the links back to the original article.

    Does this harm for the seo ?


    thank you

    Onlywire works fine for me. You have to make sure you download the submitter.

    Right now, Onlywire is only failing at Digg, Stumble Upon, and Propeller.

    I know they are 3 biggies, but I've contacted them and they assure me they are working to correct this.

    They said that these 3 services are trying to prevent them for submitting but that they are close to a fix.

    Otherwise, I've had no problems.

    Most of my traffic is coming from Delicious, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Plurk, Newsvine, Mister Wong, and Google.

    I have not done any other on page SEO.

    I'm not a pro, and don't know a ton about SEO. Just the basics.

    I'm totally new at this. I just looked at other autoblogs and thought about what I didn't want to do.

    One was have blogs with just the title and excerpt of an article and no way to read the whole thing.

    When I found an articvle I wanted to read, and it was an autoblog and I had to keep looking, that used to get me pissed and I would backclick rather than click an ad.

    If you provide the people with what they are looking for, and place the ads in the "hot spots" in the posts like Adsense recommends, they are much more apt to leave via an ad once they have read what they are looking for.

    This was my theory, and so far it's working as I can see from my time on site stats and page views per visitor.

    I can't stress enought he importance of the keyword and competitiveness of the niche.

    I have found a real good one, and it wasn't hard to do.

    There are tons of gemsout there if you klnow how to find them. It's really not that hard.

    Start by researching the top paying Adsense keywords, then use the Google Adwords keyword tool to determine two things:

    How many times it and keywords related to it are searched, and the competition (how many people are advertising with the keyword).

    Then, you need to literally search your keywords and look at the sites that are ranking on page 1. Check them out and se what they are doing and then mimic it. Copy their keywords. Just look through the site and it won't be hard to tell what keywords they are using.

    View the source and see if you can see their title and H1 tags.

    Write all of those down and focus your articles around those keywords.

    I guarantee you the top sites in almost any niche will be Wordpress sites or some other type of blog.

    The sitemap is very important. All 3 of my blogs were indexed in less than 24 hours.
