    Hi there,

    I'm planning to set up an autoblog, but before I start I want to do some research.

    This is the plan:
    -autoblog with relevant content about a niche (in Dutch). Max 10 articles a day. Want to have little work on this part. Just posting rss feed (different sources) as concepts. If the post is interesting then publicate. Don't really care about duplicate content.

    -forum (bbpress)
    Create a community with people who will discuss on forum and underneath the blogs.

    -No adwords/adsense. Want to build a community. (when the community is there I want to advertise my shop here but not for the first months).

    1) Will this be a problem for google? Don't wanna get sandboxed or something. The community is why this site will be interesting for the visitors. Planning to use wprobot. Do I have to 'hide' this plugin? And if yes, how?

    2) Can you advice on a theme? A paid theme is no problem. Budget ~$100. Kewords: magazine, professional, conveniently arranged, images next to home post (also for a bit older public from 30 - 60 years of age).

    3) Other tips?

    I like WPRobot as a great autoblogging plugin it offers the most variety of content source options. I am not a fan of unreviewed content which only leads to a junk site that offers no value to the visitor.

    Although I am new to internet marketing most of the time Google sees that you are making several posts a day and knows that it is not humanly possible you bring the red flag to your account. You really just need 2-3 good posts a day then start marketing the site.
