    Hey all, some of you might be familiar with my first journal, which was CPA + SEO centered.
    I was able to generate revenue of +3.5k? in total from 1 site, passively (set up, did some SEO and forget it and updating you guys now and then how's it going).

    Because i'm lazy shit (sorry my french :) ), i'm now concentrating in more direct and stable traffic + more passive which grows way better than SEO in volumes.

    I'v set fanpage in this unsatured niche into facebook, currently +1100 very targeted likes which WILL buy anything related into this niche.

    I have registered into 4 social sites (more will come later when i'm not feeling lazy) which are updated using nextscript social autoposter (SNAP), i set it yesterday and did very little... today i'm seeing revenue of
    ?0.32


    I am still setting this up and getting correct plugins to work with, about that matter... i will leave a question for you guys so you can help me if you feel like it! I set this thread about my problem: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blogging/614923-scheduling-posts-live-any-plugin.html
    summarizing that thread;

    I need plugin which will catch my post going to publishing and insert scheduled time into them ON FLY, i'm using Vlads software which can post 1000's articles and images into wordpress blog, but i dont want to post them as a clump and the software doesnt support "submit as draft" function as there is this awesome tool "auto draft poster" for wordpress (plugin) which would schedule all draft posts.
    If i would have 2000 drafts waiting in my blog... used that tool to make it so that it would post 3 times a day, it would post quality content 666,6666666.... days straight! IMO that's autobloggin with QUALITY output.

    I just need to find plugin how to do that, then i would rake huge ammounts of cash for my graduation reward :D Also like in other thread, i said i would share this method when it's perfected in some degree so anyone can make some cash from it.

    If your interested in helping, i'm having a hunch that you can manipulate main structure of wordpress by going to post.php and switching with functions (switch "publish" button settings with "save draft" button) so that the software would not need any modification, just the easily modified wordpress script.


    So back to my journal, i'm currently struggling with that script, but i try to upload some content manually now and then to drive traffic, so far looking great (with even 30?ents)


    If you have questions, ask, i cant update this much now as i'm in the beginning.

    PLan is to post quality stuff semi-automatically, doing only 1-3 hours per 1 year of work and money comes in, doesnt sound bad doesnt it? haha.

    Good luck with your journey. Looks like a plan.

    Will the content be unique/spun? And how do you plan to monetize the site ?

    Thanks, it's not unique but in world of social media, unique content is not needed as it is direct traffic.
    Currently i'm monetizing wiht adsense, later on to avoid adsense ban as they tend to hit ban hammer easily after few months if you only drive social traffic... i will get geo targeted plugin which will show geo targeted CPA offers in the site, might earn even more.

    Adsense is great entry level monetizing method.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    Good luck on your journey OP. I was about to ask if the content was going to be unique instead of spun but you already answered that :p

    I contacted software maker and he said he will implement this in 2 weeks, that's great!
    I'm getting 0.32€ per click from adsense, today so far 1 click. Might get 1 click more when i'm at sleep.

    Game with autoblogs and adsense is to grow slowly, lets see! when i get needed function into tool, i will start doing more blogs so scale this up huge.

    Yesterday earnings was
    [h=2]€1.80[/h]So it starts to grow now, had good ~170 page views and it's growing steadily.
    10 times this and i almost make enough to pay the rent with just adsense income, cool aint it? even the smallest things in the world can be big things if you look at it with at different perspectives.

    It's been running now autopilot for some time and it's been changing alot, todays earnings so far:
    [h=2]€1.44[/h]Might go to +2€ maybe when i wake up.

    I just need to get more social accounts and proxies (currently running only one!) and spam this thing harder, also i need to tweak and choose better theme for my site!
    Any suggestions... 50% images so it should be theme which compliments adsense + image content aswell as articles. Any idea?

    Nah it didnt go over 2€ yesterday, stayed like that for whole day.
    Today:
    [h=2]€1.46[/h]
    Same question for today:
    I need to tweak and choose better theme for my site!
    Any suggestions... 50% images so it should be theme which compliments adsense + image content aswell as articles. Any idea?

    Currently i'm earning more than i'm investing in this (if you exclude electricity lol, it's part of rent in my contract) so there is profit margins even with low revenue stream like this.
    This is almost all passive and so far i'm seeing ~45€/month of revenue, which is good 2 cases of beer in Finland per month (24-pack costs +20€, we have most strict alcohol taxes in the world i think?)

    Looks like my proxy-hub shows this, dont know why!
    Account Credit Balance: $36.00 USD
    If i understand correctly, i have credit worth of 2 months of dedicated proxies.
    Might buy some later if pinmasters comes back from the brake.

    Did little snooping around, best themes are CTR themes but alot of people said that default wordpress theme is getting way better CTR (must be because of high image content), now i just need a proper adsense plugin and we know there is huge ammounts of them around.

    Before i go to sleep:
    [h=2]€2.67[/h]Updating to default theme was great idea IMO, i have added mailchimp subscribe form into sidebar so i can recycle some of the traffic.
    If you have dog collar site, you can offer your visitors like 5 unique dog collar DIY projects in PDF form for exchange of email information ;)

    I figured out that what would be better than giving out author accounts to most active fans so they will be main source of original material (articles), why should i do all the writing? (havent done any so far tough haha) why wouldnt i just give out permissions to those who knows thing or two about the niche i'm doing? I'm clueless but i can act like i know what i'm doing and these fans seems to swallow it like sugar coated cerial.

    My traffic has jumped right after i went to default theme, also pinterest traffic has jumped (pins have sticked and started spreading).

    I have a huntch that this is going to be authority site in not so long time, this thing is growing very fast passively.

    BOOM!
    Earnings just went:
    [h=2]€4.18[/h]You can see how steadily it grows, and it grows with good percent!
    This thing is very easy to dublicate and it wouldnt take that long to automate if my other sites would rip their content from main site with FEED.

    If i would care to be not lazy bastard, i would make 10 more sites in few days and i could see 4€ x 10 per day in a few weeks minimum, that is the power of autoblogs and social traffic.

    Doing this with copied content and adsense, isn't there a danger for having the account banned?

    Yes there is ofcourse, but if i keep this under radar (having 50% text content) i can MAYBE avoid it long enough. That's why i'm planning to give some people authority to write content on my behalf, unique content from users who know what they are talking about :)
    To reward them, they will get their names visible.

    Currently i'm not making so big that google would be obsessed with my site, they will start looking after my mischief when i make more than 500€/month.

    I think google is revaluating my CPC, i did only 0.34€ yesterday, what a bummer!

    I need good ammount of pinterest accounts to drive in more stable traffic as i'm not seeing enough traffic with only 1 account.

    Did some adsense tweaking today with Adsense Explosion plugin, also added CPA offer into sidebar to spread out revenue as much as possible.
    Before i go to sleep:
    [h=2]€1.59[/h]Currently traffic is increasing and i can see +200UV's already daily, hopefully my tweaking will reflect that traffic into revenue.
    Also i remembered that i have perfectly working pinterest accounts in my archives which i used earlier with few sites so they are well aged (over a year).
    Now i need to buy some proxies and test them out if they will login properly still.

    If someone knows trustworthy pinterest account seller, please do tell!
