    Hello learned BHW members!

    My name is Jack and I am a student from Dublin, studying commerce in France and i am a self-confessed noob. Now i dont want to sound too naive in my topic so i will keep it short.

    I heard recently about autoblogs and have read some fantastic methods in this section about autoblogging.
    Then, to get started my friend told me that I need to buy a domain in order to utilise tools such as W-P-omatic etc, so I did. But now i am confused. I have bought my domain and hosting but i want to know if it is necessary to now build my own site before starting autoblogs.
    Or can somebody outline (In pre-school noob detail if possible) the steps required for me to simply start up an autoblog from my domain. I know Ernests' fantastic post deals with some very early set up for autoblogs but me and some other newbies here who i have been chatting with are still wondering what to do next and are lost.

    If any legendary BHW members could offer a step by step guide from after the domain is bought until the blogs are an autopilot I and the others would be greatly appreciative.

    I hope this post is not too ignorant.

    Yours

    Jack

    starting an auto blog is not much of a problem with tools like
    cc.
    also there are various tools for wordpress that will help
    you make your website content unique .

    But my suggestion is that you should pay someone to write articles for
    you (1$ each), while you go creating backlinks and seo'ing .
    Also if you seriously wanna make money , create a pdf file ,
    call it an e-book, give for free , asking people to sign up .
    they sign up and get your ideas for free along with an affiliate
    link of yours , so that u make money .
    There are hundreds of websites out there that send 10,000
    targetted traffic for only 20$ , check them out as well .

    make sure you get as much as leads as possible , cos then
    u can trouble them once in a while .

    So now you have your next level auto blog as well as
    a niche blog that collects email addresses .

    most people coming would either click on your adsense ads or
    altest give you their email addresses , enough of cash for you .

    hit thanks if liked my help .

    Ok. I'll try to help.

    After you got your domain, here are the next steps:
    1. get yourself a hosting for that domain
    2. now change the DNS address of your domain to the DNS address of your new hosting
    3. it's usually taking up to 24 hours before your domain pointed to your hosting (this depends on which hosting company that you use, it will vary).
    4. after your domain is live (you can open it in your browser), you need to go to CPANEL (http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel) (you will get this from your hosting provider), you need to install WORDPRESS by using FANTASTICO installer, fill in the required details (username and password), and then install the WORDPRESS.
    5. you can also install WORDPRESS using manual method, but it's recommended to use FANTASTICO as you say that you're a newbie.
    6. Now you need to enter FILE MANAGER inside CPANEL, and then find directory where you have installed your WORDPRESS, if you've installed it on root folder then open "/public_html/wp-content/plugins", after that upload all the required plugins that you need (such as WP O MATIC, sitemap generator, super cache, ping tool, adsense manager, etc)..after that extract the plugin one by one.
    7. After you have installed WORDPRESS, your next step is to login to WORDPRESS ADMIN AREA (the address is usually on this format http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin <<< given that you installed WORDPRESS on root folder
    8. insert the required username and password, after successfully login, click "PLUGINS" button, you will see all of your plugins here (that you have previously upload and ectract)..then you need to activate each required plugins. Note: you can also use this "http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin/plugins.php" in case you're confused on where the "PLUGINS" button is.
    9. Then click "SETTINGS" button (http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin/options-general.php), and setting up your plugins. First plugin that you need to configure is WP-O-MATIC.
    10. SETTING UP WP-O-MATIC= follow the 4 steps that you're required to complete (first just click that "simplepie" link, this will show you whether your hosting is compatible with WP-O-MATIC or not, if yes, then go to next step which is "configuring your time"..I'm from indonesia, so it's UTC+7..figure this on your own. Next step is "creating campaign", this is just naming your campaign. Then "adding feeds" to your campaign (read more details on finding feeds at Ernests' fantastic post). As far as I remember, your done.
    11. Then configure other plugins which in my opinion is easy as long as you can read and understand english.

    That's all from me, sorry if it's not good and if there are any mistakes.

    Thanks.

    p.s. to change "theme/template" of your wordpress you need to upload your template first on "/public_html/wp-content/plugins" then extract it, after that login to your WORDPRESS ADMIN AREA, click the "DESIGN" button and then click "THEMEs" button, choose your desired template/theme, wait for it to give preview and the click on "activate theme" or "activate theme's name".

    as far as I remember, WP-O-MATIC is not compatible with the new WORDPRESS 2.7

    http://www.yourdomain.com <<< where "yourdomain" you change it to your actual domain..also don't forget to look for the .com and change it if your domain is using .info / .net or other extension.
