    Hey guys :)

    During the last 8~ months I have been working on a side project niche site, I've put up around 1 hour every weekend to post 1-2 articles,
    most of them are 90% generated via a software I've written after choosing my own style.
    I bought a couple of articles from textbroker to keep the overall level high, and with no promotion / marketing or additional costs
    it made me an average of 50$ / mo, last month being the biggest (probably Christmas) with 133$.

    A week ago I have decided to try my luck with a fully automated site, I have forked and improved my software
    to auto generate and post the articles for me.
    This week it has published around 50 articles and its ongoing.

    In this journey I will share relevant analytic stats and revenues, and see if there's any potential to this method.

    What I've done so far:
    - Got domain, set up wordpress w/ a free theme and plugins
    - Modified some plugins to work with the software
    - Added google analytics
    - Submitted to index site in relevant search engines
    - Added to webmaster tools
    - Set up my software to publish an article once in a couple of hours

    Current stats:
    0 sales
    Around 50 articles published
    18 indexed

    Let's do this !

    Hi! dany, Good luck for your journey. Here, I can see already you published 50 articles and earned $50+$133 from the site. I think your steps are so much strategic. Carry on guys, You will receive a good day. What about your next plan?

    Hey SEMWORLD,
    My average 50$ and 133 figures I've mentioned was from my other site (which is still kicking and already made me like 15$ in the last 3 days)

    Based on my experience with the previous site - I build the current one, which hasn't made a sell yet.

    Stats:
    Around 70 articles published
    27 indexed still
    8 visitors from organic search (this month)
    0 sales

    I'm hoping that in the upcoming two months I'll see some sales and better ranking.

    Great day everyone !

    Sprechend, MisterF - It's a software I have built on my own, based on my experience with my previous site.
    The content is well formatted, easy on the eye, and extremely relevant for buyers :)
    It proved itself quite well with my previous site, and hopefully now, with some improvements I've made
    which made this fully autopilot - it can scale ever better (think 5, 10, 50 sites parallel)

    This thread will be the judge of it

    I've done quite a lot with auto generated content. If its not human readable Google will give you a "pure spam" penalty eventually. I say eventually because I've found sites with under 1000 views per day tend to last a while. Over 1000 tend to be slapped pretty quick. Also not sure what Amazon thinks of auto generated content?
