    Hi guys

    After spending over $2000 and countless hours of my time, I have come to the point where I am totally desperate. 5 months ago I bought my first site ever (on Flippa) from some respected seller there and as a bonus he gave me the 'secret' of earning money online. Here it comes: set up 100 automated videoblogs and let them make you $1 a day, sit back, relax and watch cash flow in. He's been doing it for quite some time... he says.

    Unfortunately, complete newbie mistake of mine: I believed him. So I did as he told: set up everything with Wordpress and PHPMyVideoblog. And then the big disappointment came: all blogs are having little to no traffic. And I really mean little to no traffic: most blogs are having around 20 to 30 visitors a month (approx. 1 a day), but some have as little as 2 or 3 visitors a month. I bought some gigs on Fiverr to get some visitors, but without any luck (read: conversions). Doing SEO for 100 (low-content) websites would be way to expensive and maybe impossible to rank because of low content, so I think that is a route I cannot go. Also tried with Mass Planner and 40 social media accounts to create some buzz on social media (mainly FB group posting), but nope.... nothing or very little. Just gave up my VPS and Mass Planner last week.

    The guy that put me up to all this still answers my mails, but his advice is very vague: 'I just buy gigs from Fiverr' (but he won't tell me which ones), 'I started with 10 websites and scaled up', ... Even now I still have doubts if he is really making money this way, or if I have just been scammed...

    Well, since I have the blogs now (in 10 different niches): maybe someone can tell me if there is anything I could do with them to maybe earn some of my investment back. Any reasonable advice on how to possibly drive traffic to them is more then welcome! And don't mind to be honest: if I have been scammed and there is no way in the world I could earn with these 100 sites, you can let me know. It will prevent me of putting even more time in this project.

    Thanks in advance for your 2 cents!

    Honestly, I'd take it as a learning experience and move onto something else. Sounds like this guy was really taking advantage of you. You can use some of what you've learned (creating blogs, using massplanner, etc) and apply that to another method.

    Thanks... I was afraid of that kind of answer. I'll try to do better with another method and just disregard the blogs. What a waste... :-(
