    Hello people,

    Can some one make a prognose of this how it will be look like after some days,months,years. And if Im going the wrong way please tell me how to correct.

    Short story:

    Alexarank from 7 to 8 mil.
    (news) Blogsite: 138 categories, +- 1600 postst which all are backdated till 4 years ago. And also has 148 subdomain blogsites. The blogsite including categories, post-pages and all the subdomains are fully loaded with Adsense ads, amazon products, Clickbank products. And this everything are niche related. Have been commenting with SB public proxies. And bookmark posters and also twitter manualy. But I am not getting any visitors at all and I have made 0,03 cents till now. Im lost I dont know where the problem is. Can someone help me please?

    Same story but Long version that could help others:

    I've been reading and reading for a very long time on this amazing forum on everything related to make money online. Days passed and I was getting more enthousiasted to start with autoblogging. I will trie to explain everything clearly so this thread could help others that can see them self in here too.

    I toke a VPS hosting just because the more freedom you will get. Then I bought a domain ( NEWS related ) because you can make a huge site of it and installed it on the hosting this took me 3 days. Waiting for aprovements and payment transfers etc. Then I installed wordpress from the cpanel which is a easy task. After that I had an empty blog site where I could see a structure. I choosed a simple theme and went for it. After having that basement I started making categories which I have now 138, and I added +-1600 copyscape passed articles with comments and I've created 148 autoblogs every categorie page, mainpage, postpage, subdomain blogs are fully loaded with adsense ads amazone ads and product aff. links, clickbank aff links all related to the keywords used (I have been doing this all with an amazing program but with a tuff price tagged to it (for me what it can all do is worth the money because I saved lots but lots of time with this tool but also with this tool I had to do manualy things to correct the programs mistakes. For that part you can choose to do it manualy all on your own which will take you lots of times I think 4-6 months or using programs, or outsource the work(investing money) and using usefull free WP plugins that are almost always on the blog threads here people recommend. Like Ultimate SEO, statpress, onlywire that alouds you to do with just few clicks some bookmark postings of the posts on your website. Next to this I used to spend time on twitter methods also explained in details in this forum. I also bought Scrabebox and tried to use it with lots of methods talked on this forum too. So to reach what you just read it costed me 6 hours a day after my daily 9-5 job. And as a total newbie to this I think for the second time I will set this up it will take me 50% of the time. Before I forget additional investments I've made was buying 1000 backlinks from people selling on this forums too. And I setted up cron jobs so the blog and all subblogs are getting updated 2 times a week with 5 new post with articles, youtube videos, amazon+clickbank ads

    This is it for now.

    I am not happy with the results that are: $ 0.00 amazon, $ 0.00 clickbank, $ 0,03 cents adsense. And for sure comparing it to all my efforts (lots of hours) and money invested (+-800 dollars)

    I see this forum as my only way to come out of this lose of money. Hope to have some nice shares here on how to go further now. Just continue like this and it will be allright or just quit and accept the lose or take action on some suggestions you will bring. Im curious. Thanks in advance for reactions!

    ( dont know if Im aloud to put the websites adress on here so we will see )

    wow you do it big man i am not a autoblog guy but it seems you just need to do some PROPER SEO or you are competing in highly competitive niches especially if you are paying someone to do 1000backlinks......with SEO its constant link building so you can just buy 1K and then stop it needs to happen over and over read up on SEO on the forums there are tons of tips out there and if you are struggling sell off some of your autoblogs then ionno how much you'll get for them tho.

    Don't you mention about your "keyword research"? It seems that you don't know how to have a good starting point. :)
    Anyway, don't give up....

    wooww amazing very fast replays. I would like to sell some autoblogs since what I have seen on the flippa site but are you telling me to sell the subdomains ? I wouldn't know how to do that. Is that possible if the subdomains are just flysubdomains in the database?

    Does also someone have other suggestions which I can do to make some money with the tools I have at the moment?

    I didn't really do for the main domainname because my plan was to add lots different categories. And those 148 are some recommended keywords I used for the categories.

    autoblogging is a numbers game
    you need lots of different domains
    all with different keywords
    and you automate every thing

    some domains will return $ others will give you $0
    some will get banned and dropout of big g index

    My statpress plugin shows me 1000 visitors daily which some are from a service I paid to get traffic I guess like 80% so real visitors would be like 200 that arent converting for nothing. And Also statpress shows me Im having 1400 page impressions daily.

    It looks like autoblogging works real slow, but I can see that after 7 months the earnings increased a bit for me, so same thing may happen to you.
    I think the result we got is coz we move to the wrong direction.
    Going to choose new keywords and play again autoblog game.

    what kind of money amount on earnings are you talking about after 7 months?
    And can you compare your website with mine? I cant imagine paying 50 dolllars a month for 7 months will be 350dollars more + 800 dollars would be 1150 dollars does someone think I can get a breakeven point and so when?

    I mean buy more domains --- if big g bans your domain it will also ban your 148 subdomain

    so your are better having having 148 .info (they cost about $1 each) domains

    than 1 .com with 148 subdomains for autoblogs ----
    autoblogs get banned because it junk information, or you build too many page per day-- or too many backlinks --- or big g does some sort of cleanup --- so if big g does not like the site-- it de-indexs the whole site

    off page seo = linkbuilding
    Sounds like you're on the right track though. I like how you chose to go big and add 100+ subdomains lol. Are these for related niches?
    As for the initial keyword research.. I wouldn't worry much about that if it's an autoblog. Your content comes from article directories and those articles will usually be optimized for certain "well-researched" keyphrases.
    What you have to do is keep optimizing the ad positioning and what not, keep building links, but most importantly have patience and let it grow.
    Focus your efforts on something else and before you know it this site will have gained so much seo value that your posts will get indexed and ranking almost instantly (given you've played all your cards right).
    Also consider expanding to more domains on different c-class ip's because in case this domain gets google fucked all the subdomains go down with it.

    I would spin some of these articles and mass post it to the articles sites with you links included. That's for a start. Yeah, and I hope that you've done the keyword research right.

    I can make 200 subdomain sites complete with adsense ads amazon ads clickbank aff links all related to the keywords of the subdomains. Do you know what is a safe amount to create per day?
    And how about creating categories? I have the same power as domain names?
    And how can you see it coming if google is going to ban your site? they start banning the adsense account or ?

How do you mean create more links? just buy 100k backlinks offer or what?

    Well, it's a shame for me to tell you, but after 7 months from 2 sites I earned 20 USD! Do you think it's okay?
