    Hi

    I've been a member here for a while and have made money from PPD, Clickbank, and affiliate marketing thanks to this forum. This is a bit different as I am trying to set up a source of income that I can "set and forget". My goal for this journey will not be to make a certain amount of money as autoblogs have to grow before any money is made. My progress will be tracked by the amount of traffic my blogs get and I will not even monetize the blogs until I start bringing in a decent amount of traffic. These autoblogs will be created using this method: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...oblog-social-media-passive-income-system.html

    All credits for that method go to reinstecker.

    Let's get started.


    Plan
    • Buy hosting
    • Buy domain
    • Setup first autoblog
    • Setup social accounts related to first autoblog
    • Continue setting up as many autoblogs as possible
    • Get a decent amount of traffic
    • Monetize
    • $$$$$$$$
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    Day 1

    To get this journey started I bought the "Personal Class" linux hosting from arvixe.com which is the same hosting from the method I linked to in the post above. If you are going to use Arvixe like me, you can use this coupon: 20OFFINVOICE to get a 20% discount on your first invoice. I bought 1-year hosting for $48 using the coupon above. The hosting came with a domain so I also took care of that. I have installed wordpress on a subdomain (to avoid having to buy multiple domains) and have installed all the plugins listed in the method to which I posted a link above. Here is the list of the plugins:
    - Watermark my Image
    - Auto Post Thumbnail
    - FeedWordPress
    - 404 simple redirect
    - Google Analyticator
    - Open in New Window Plugin
    - Seo friendly Images
    - WP Super Cache
    - Simple Google Sitemap XML
    - Wordfence Security
    - Limit Login Attempts
    - Acurax on Click Popunder
    - Nextscripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster

    I still need to set them all up but they are installed. Hopefully I have this autoblog up and running by tomorrow.

    Day 2

    I finished setting up my first autoblog along with the social accounts yesterday. Below is the traffic I have gotten. 84% of it is from StumbleUpon so if you are thinking of doing this, make sure you don't forget to use StumbleUpon!

    Yes, I am pretty much doing exactly reinstecker's method. I will be setting up as many blogs as possible under my main domain. I am hoping to have at least 5 setup by the end of the month.

    Day 3

    Got a few more visitors to my site today:
    a701b7cc07c77f3f169c9d90a5d1593a.png

    Here's what I did today:

    • Found 5 new niches
    • Created the corresponding subdomains
    • Installed wordpress on all the subdomains
    • Found RSS feeds to provide content for 2 of the five niches
    • Bought 5 PVA Facebook accounts from fbfbfb in order to create a Facebook page and start getting some Facebook traffic to my blog (still waiting to get them)

    I'm hoping to find RSS feeds for the rest tomorrow and setup the autoblogs. Once that's done I'll still need to get the social accounts setup. I'll probably have to buy some proxies to do that. I'm hoping to get these 5 blogs done by the end of the month and maybe more.

    May I know the niche you are working and have you added the adsense code as well ?

    I hope my journey will motivate you to get started and take action!

    Thanks!

    I was already asked this. Please re read the thread. When you find the niche, you will realize I cannot use AdSense for it

    Thanks, I'm actually surprised so many people are interested in a journey that seems so "boring".

    I'm also done with setting up Twitter, Tumblr, and Stumbleupon for my first blog so I hope to see some traffic coming in pretty soon!

    I remember seeing that method awhile back. I'm glad someone is taking action on it. Good luck on the journey!
