    Heyya..I am devilived, i have been a user of this forum for about a few years now.I have not posted or contributed much to this forum but i reckon its high time now. I received my university graduation letter a few days ago, but the thing is that i don't want a regular day job. I feel its boring and its not well paid. In the country where i live, a graduate level day job at accenture would start at about $650 monthly. :yield:

    Even though i don't want a regular job, i guess for now i will have to find one, need to pay a few bills and rent.

    So, basically right now i am looking to have a full time job + part time IMer. Once i hit my target of $109.12 (? 81.1), i will leave my regular job.

    I will use this thread to keep account of what i am doing and obviously it will help me to stay focussed.

    Here is where i am with IM:

    I already have a domain name, hosting, some programming skills ( wordpress + php )

    I posted a few articles in july 2012 on that particular domain(using wordpress) and it brought me about
    ?110 for that month. i got lazy and did not post any more articles after that. But i have been getting about ?30 each month since then. The thing is that, posting requires me to go through a lot of website, find content/images and rewriting.

    A few days earlier, i decided to code a scraper and an autoposter for wordpress. i use simple html dom and XML-RPC Wordpress Api. It worked out for me, i add about 50 posts of content with image and video per day. The content gets indexed on the same day.
    Here is the code for autoposting to wordpress. it has helped me a lot, so i am sharing it with you. If you need help about it, just hit me with a pm - i'll try to reply to everyone.

    Code:

    credits for this code :
    hxxp://www.wprecipes.com/post-on-your-wordpress-blog-using-php

    Since then my adsense earning has increased to about
    ?10 per day and number of unique visitors has increased by 5 times.

    so for this month my adsense earning is
    ?86.78

    Today's earning so far is
    ?11.90


    My long term plan is to build an authority website. i had a look at xfactor threads and all of this 3 books along with a thread here, from a user hotboy i think (he had thousands of minisites)?? i know the third xfactor ebook is crap but i feel motivated to work on an authority website. I already have an account with linkshare, shareasale & cj. i want to give affiliate marketing a try on my authority website. Right now i am customizing a wordpress theme to be used on my authority website. Once complete, i will start writing articles. Once i have about 20 articles written, i will buy a domain name for my authority website and go online!

    Well i guess that's it. Needless to say, english is not my native language .. so bear with me.

    $109.12 == (€ 81.1)



    109.12 $ x 30 = $3237.6 which in my currency will be equal to 100,000

    So you've written a script to automatically rewrite articles by replacing a few words? I'm curious, are you targeting specific keywords; what kind of rankings are you currently seeing? Any #1, etc?
    If you truly are just doing a str_replace(); on all of your articles, this isn't genuinely unique content (which I assumed wouldn't rank very well). Since you're gaining visitors, though (and you said all of your new posts get indexed very quickly), there must be something you are doing well.

    Thanks for your time! :)

    PS: Have you thought about implementing any kind of content spinning/spintax, or anything of the sort? Or is your technique somehow focused on replacing the certain strings, etc. Is the idea more geared towards volume/quantity - post tons of articles in an automated way and get quick traffic?

    Best,

    As i said its not original content, i am using str_replace to only replace a few words. I target spefic words using str_replace, i look around for good sources of contents and i modify the scraper accordingly.

    Actually I am scraping from another wordpress blog, the owner has a plugin i think that displays the search terms that users have used to land on that specific page. I scrape the content along with these words ( i used these particular words as tags on my blog) and i use str_replace to modify the tags a bit.

    And i forgot to mention, its a 5 year old domain - pr 2 , sometimes it drops to pr 1. It did not have any content for about a year or so, it still didnt lose its pr.
