    Hi all,
    I've been reading a lot about auto blogging over the last few days and thought I'd create my own mix and get a few blogs rolling to see where I could take it.

    I made sure that everything I'm using is self contained within Wordpress. So if I were to choose a new tool that would help it would be a Wordpress plugin with settings that could be edited within Wordpress.

    First of all I bought the following tools which I need to accomplish my goals:

    VPS
    Domain names - keyword in URL
    Dripable
    Onlywire
    Maxblogpress *****
    WPSynIT PRO-NUKE
    Wp Robot 3

    I'm using Wordpress self hosted with the following Wordpress plugins

    Chap Secure Login
    CPU Load
    Disqus
    Geo Mark
    Like
    Google analytics for Wordpress
    Login Lockdown
    Onlywire (official)
    Statpress
    Tweetbacks
    Wordpress SEO - Yoast
    WP Ezine Articles
    Wp Smush it
    WPSynIT
    XML Sitemap Feed

    Extras

    Clickbank account
    Social accounts


    Process

    So here goes, this is what I've been doing.

    First of all I went over to trust Google Keyword Tool (formerly keyword tool external) and found a keyword particular to the niche I wanted to fulfil. So for example if I wanted to create a site to do with Wordpress, I would pop 'Wordpress' into keyword tool and then then get a keyword with low competition and buy the domain which contained this keyword. For example 'wordpressthemes' (just for example)

    I've not got a folder on my desktop which has got Wordpress install files with all the necassary plugins that I need already downloaded and in this folder also for easy uploading.

    Next thing is to setup hosting and get the WP database live - out of scope of this post. I'm sure we all know how to do this!

    Now I want to focus on just a few plugins as the majority of the security, analytics ones are mandatory and not what this post is about.

    So now that I've got my site setup and installed I can start thinking about putting content on it.

    I'm using WP Robot to grab keyword rich content from various sources (this plugin offers about 20 different offerings such as Youtube commenting, article posting things like that. I got the top 10 that I could afford as it's quite expensive at $169 for all packages)

    With this plugin I'm pulling in one new piece on content to my blog every couple of hours.

    Now here comes the cool part, thanks for sticking with me!

    Maxbobpress ***** - This tool seems really cool. What it does it it adds an affiliate link behind any keyword in your copy that you want. So for example if I'm going for my Wordpress orientated autoblog, then I would create an affiliate link for a high gravity product which is relevant to Wordpress. I now add my affil link to ***** so that each keyword I specify, ie. Wordpress, wordpress tools throughout the copy get highlighted and linked to my affil link. The best thing of this tool is yet to come. You can cloak your affiliate link so that the affiliate link appears as a folder on your domain name ie. /wordpress so the user feels that they have not left your site.

    This is pretty naughty but cool none the less.

    Another great tool is WPSynIT PRO-NUKE which I've gone for quite a good package.

    It costs $50 p/m and is very clever. It automatically posts every new post that is created on your site to delicious, tumblr, and about another 30 sites including WP dirs and many others. So in short, you get about 50 brand new links per per that you create.

    So in short, what I've got is a keyword rich Wordpress blog which pulls in automatic content, (dupe) adds affil links, cloaks the affil links and pings all kinds of sites, creating links for each new post all on fully AUTO!

    Pretty cool right?

    My questions are:

    What do you think of this process?
    Could it be streamlined or expanded?
    All of these tools can be used on unlimited websites so I can create as many blogs as I want.
    Would google be a little annoyed with the IP address that hosts these sites?
    Would it be a good idea to host all these sites on different IPs?

    Thanks again!

    Thanks dude. How would I expand it? Buy 100 domains across different IPs and get some cheap labour to rinse and repeat?

    your setup looks good, just make sure it works before expanding, and that you are actually profiting.

    Then outsource the whole thing to expand

    Sorry all, one last question. How many visits do you think I should be going for per month for the test site?

    Woah Woah Woah.... slow down.. Thats not the smartest thing to do... Spending $500-600 before even starting!! Keep your costs low!

    That is why we introduced the idea of autoblogging on free web 2.0 properties so that the cost is only $0.09 per month per blog! Control your costs or this would turn into a horror story faster than you can imagine!

    Keep posting frequency upto 5 posts per 24 hour. And when it comes to autoblogging, it is a number game. Spend maximum time in Keyword Research.

    Good Luck :)

    I achieved a great about 100 visits p/d by doing next to nothing. But my bus model was to make money from affil rather than CPC because Chikita ads looks rubbish and they get no clicks.. Over my 15 sites I was getting about 100 hops p/d. So close, but yet so far!

    Yesterday I decided to re activate my accounts. I've got 20 now I think. For each I'm in the process of creating a twitter account and getting the blog feed going through Twitterfeed.

    In 1/2 day yesterday I got 200 hops, but nothing even close to a sale.

    What I'm going to do is spend some time over the next month putting some really nice templates on the sites. I have a couple of paid ones, so I might just alternate between the two across the 20 sites so they look good.. I think the trick is to make the sites look as fac as possible.

    This is a good plan - as far as I am concerned, clickbank vendors can say they have a good sales page, but you really have to upsell on a landing page of your own. I mean, really sell it to them to the point where they go from your lander to the product page and don't even read about the product, just look right away for the "buy now" button.

    Thanks guys. I've decided that I'm going to keep this thread open and update regularly to show what's been going on because I am genuinely doing all this work myself.

    So I'm just having a quick look at my Clickbank analytics for this month so far. For the first couple of weeks I was avereraging about 50 hops per day. Yesterday, I received 181, which is a significant increase in only a couple of weeks. The issue is that there have only been 5 order form impressions over the entire month and no sales. Pretty pants right?

    I remember running a similar affiliate strategy a couple of years ago using the infamous Twitter money making machine (or whatever it was called). I created multiple Twitter accounts, set feeds to just chuck in affiliate links to the accounts and auto follow all kinds of people using the 'churn' system to build followers. I remember seeing similar sorts of stats for this back in the day, it was all about getting an insame amount of hops for very little sales, but it did quite well making a couple of hundred $ p/m before Twitter changed their TOS and all my accounts got banned. No harm done.

    I think the next course of action would be to tweak the sites. I'm going to make the designs more 'trust worthy' and make them look like real sites. I have to say they look a little spammy at the moment. I'm confident that 'trust' is key in this environment, and then when I have the trust, then the conversions will follow.

    Thanks for reading.
