    Hi,

    I have been working on a blog farm for some time ( i ll post the results in 10-15 days once its up and ready) and i am struck at this point.

    Before you go on reading the post further , i want to tell you, this blog farm is not black hat. I didnt create it with some software or content scraper.

    This farm i am building basically for link juice benifits and will be basically whitehat/gray hat with bit of automation where ever possible.

    But the content is not spinned but copied from somewhere.

    Now the question is
    How do i track all the blogs in the farm ???

    If i install all the blogs ( i have currently 25 , will increase to 100) in a single Google Analytics account , then its easy to detect that its a blog farm.

    Its getting difficult for me to insert the Google Analytics code into each of these blogs.

    Is there any solution ?? not necessarily complete automation, even the partially helpful tools will be great.:)

    Yeh, don't go near GA... Try
    Code:
    Woopra.com
    It's a free site stats software, still in beta though. It allows you to install a wordpress plugin that compiles all your traffic data. Check it out

    yup.. i have checked that already. Infact everything that was available on the net though google search.

    first : Woopra is still in beta, i dont know when my sites will be approved. Again, because this is blog farm, they might think i am spamming and may disapprove.

    2nd : even if they approve, i still need to install the code on the blogs. This code will give clear tracks to google that all the blogs in the blog farm are pointed to same woopra script.

    So the problem is not solved. It looks like any code that i might insert will lead to a single account:confused:.

    Simple don't use analytics. I really don't get why people use it at all, anyway you can use statcounter.com Its free.
