    thanks AutoBlogger.

    actually my autoblog is semi-automatic. a plugin fetches all relevant news from google news and saves them into drafts.

    then i edit the drafts to publish them.

    i think semi-auto is better than auto because we dont want crap posts.

    the site looks great.. just two small suggestions.. I may be nit-picking but here goes
    Try adding a "more" at the end of summary of articles at home page..
    Try moving the navigation at top with all the car brands below the header.. It looks a bit tucked away in a corner..
    otherwise.. really good blog.. keep up the good work and keep us posted.. :)

    I love the design, looks very professional. Some PR too which always helps.

    The only thing I noticed was lack of monetization - why not add adsense just below the header? Or EPN would work a treat if you have an account.

    Looks good though :)

    This is a very nice blog. How are you planning to monotize it? It looks very professional and saught after. Keep up the good work. The best autoblog ive got is a warez blog on a free host lol.

    1. the "more" has been added
    2. i want the googlebot to read those keywords first when they crawl my site. so at first i put them at the most top. but to think there's no difference to move it a bit below, i follow your suggestion

    i think too much ads is not good for CTR


    for now, by using adsense


    autoblogged plugin fetches the news. i re-edit the title and post, and add a custom field named "keywords" relevant to the title.

    for example a post titled "this is a cool semi-autoblog", the keyword custom field = autoblog

    after i publish the post, a php code will fetch some images from flickr/photobucket and put some URLS of the images into custom fields.



    i believe BHW forumers can help you :)

    images are auto generated.

    what do i do everyday is, re-edit the drafts (auto-fetches from google news) and post them. thats all

    there is no plugin. i write some php codes by myself to automate them all but the only thing i need to do is to manually click 'publish' on each drafts that i want to publish everyday. (this is to avoid crap posts)

    i notice that you sell autoblogs. can we co-operate to make money in any way? :)

    i dont know how to make it better. exhausted of idea.

    and i also dont know how to monetize it. i got very little traffic per day. this is due to bad webhosting, always down (3ix dot org is a stupid company). g00gle dont like website that is not at least 99.9% up.
