    Hello everyone,
    i build a simple picture autoblog according to reinsteckers thread. it took me around 6 weeks but its finally done(everything works 100% and i got a good score at page loading speed etc). Only problem is getting traffic to it since i underestimated getting followers on twitter tumbler etc :(

    So its time to grow twitter followers and hopefully get traffic to my first blog. as soon as i get some visitors and just copy my blog to the next niche and repeat the process. so far i have 3 twitter accounts: 1 blog account and 2 normal accounts. i started my first normal accounts 3 weeks ago and my autblog one 4 days ago

    Tools:
    -tweepi
    -imacros
    -Autoblog
    -buffer.com
    -grabinbox.com
    -free tweet scraper
    -excel file and trello.com

    Goals:
    5 Visitors per Day on my first autoblog and 2000 followers on all accounts

    Accounts:
    A
    Handmade, pva, daily handmade posting (1 image, 1 nice text or newslink)
    followertargets are from a US entertainment account

    B
    Handmade, pva, daily automated posting with buffer and grabinbox (i have grabinbox loaded for 1 year of tweets and load grabinbox every 10 days with pics)
    i scraped famous qutoes, music related tweets, funny tweets (removed all mentions and urls and rt)
    followertargets are from a US restaurant chain account

    C
    Handmade, pva, daily automated posting with my autoblog

    i follow and unfollow semiautomated with tweepi and imacros
    followfilters: avatar, last tweet 2 days ago, language, follow ration <100

    My numbers so far:

    Account A (LS)
    "761","2015/07/05"
    "793","2015/07/06"
    "825","2015/07/07"

    Account B (GV)
    "228","2015/07/06"
    "270","2015/07/07"

    Account C (SA)
    "14","2015/07/07"

    i want to use A and B to promote my future autoblogs aswell as use them as testplatform for other stuff

    follow/unfollwed 200 on each account
    well again i tweeked my imacro scripts. so far i do the tweepi navigation by hand and only do the real un/follow stuff via macro. today i noticed it is easy to navigate tweepi with imacros. i think soon i am able to fully automate the unfollow follow part with a single script for all accounts. (if i able to create a solid script i might get a cheap vps and let it run via taskmanager once a day)

    i tried to make a nice excel file so i have proper statistics with my raw "new followers" data but i failed. i found some options but i dont want to copypaste new data everytime

    i made a new porn twitter pva account and i feed it via a wordpress snap autoblog.
    i want to post 12 watermarked pictures a day on twitter with hastags but i DONT link to my site. i want to test how many people actually take their time to type in watermarks. i made 12 pic posts and followed 100 ppl from the same niche

    someone actually fav'ed one post on Account C (SA):D - this motivates me since its the only actual account i promot to get visitos to my website

    i came up with the idea to integrate emoticons to my posts (i know, i am a genius!¡) to make them more human like and less "i a m a r o b o t a n d i p o s t s t u f f t o t w i t t e r"

    "14","2015/07/07"

    any suggestions on my filters for my porn acc? i only want 100% active human users

    I guess I'll be the first -- good luck! You're definitely seeing growth. What is LS, GV and SA?

    Why do you want to force users to type in the URL in the watermarks? How do you envision gaining from that?

    LS GV SA are the initials of my accounts so i dont mess up when i post my data ;)
    i want to check if it is worth watermarking images since imo watermarks are ugly :X

    is there a way to rss post from lets say cnn.com with news title, post image and link to it?

    well yesterday i didnt have time to work
    today i follow/unfollwed 200 on each account again

    i was pretty happy since my google analytics showed me 50 !! visitors with only 71 followers but upon closer inspection i noticed that my site got hit by a refer spammer... 2003 called and they want their blackhat tactics back

    i got more favs retweets on my porn acc with only a few followers :(

    i came up with the idea to make a niche news account and feed it with rss from multiple news sites.
    so far i worked out ifttt.com and twitterfeed.
    problem with ifttt is that it has issues with the rss but the rss is from a major site so i am not sure who is to blame. i have no idea yet what can be wrong with a rss feed.
    twitterfeed seems nice but their website is laggy and it cant post images to twitter. i hope i get it worked out or find another service

    my adult account (D) had problems getting its pictures upload, i hope its fixed now

    i improved my imacros scripts but i have problems when i hit the twitter follow limits. tweepi sometimes lags behind if you reached the limit and still lets you follow users but then outputs the error and the site sometimes "forgets" that you reached the limits. i guess i will check followers limit on the twitterpage of each account or i have to come up with a good solution for tweepi.
    i searched for a windows vps and i may get a vps for $7-$10

    what is a good website to research twitter hastags?

    followed 200 on Account A and B, C and D i went for 500 because i want to reach the 2000 follower limit soon.

    tweepi "bot" is making some progress but im still not satisfied and i cant have it run yet full auto
    rss, referspam problems persist aswell :( i found a "wp pipes" its works like yahoo pipes - maybe i can fix the iftt problem with it, something like buggyrss -> working RSS -> iftt -> twitter

    my testrss twitter acc got likes and favs and a follower :cool: i guess im onto something
    my porn acc has a nice follow ratio :)

    followed 200 on Account A and B, C and D i went for 500 again

    i got a vps and tested my macros via task scheduler for A and B and they seemed to work. if they still do tomorrow im happy

    on my porn account i had a major hickup -> i suddenly posted 12x random stuff and no porn! i was pretty confused and checked my wp blog and it seems i posted some random posts 5 days ago. pretty strange...

    my news account idea matured. instead of ifttt and twitterfeed i use dlrv.it now. its pretty solid and has lots of options.
    i found a affiliate site in this niche and they have a twitter account where they post offers! i only need to copy their tweets and replace the link with my reflink! easy as it gets :D i also noticed dlrv.it can post to facebook aswell so i will start a facebook page too. anyone got knowledge on how to grow a fb page without spending money on fb ads?

    i will be offline for 5 or 6 day and i hope i can get my scripts 100% working on my vps until then, so i can grow followers on autopilot

    no stats today since my stats script runs on the vps now and its scheduled for tomorrow

    My first visitor from twitter to my autoblog :) (i bet it was a mobile user and he misclicked :p)
    today i didnt do much besides hoping my scripts are stable and my task scheduler settings are good.
    2 scripts ran on the vps and it seems it works out :)

    again followed 200 and 500 so now im on the max on all accounts and now im only able to follow unfollow 200 ppl per day. i also refilled my autoblogs with pictures so they dont run dry

    i created my news account and let it rest till i come back - the newstest account runs smooth but i failed to retweet my money tweets. twitterfeed to rss failed me :(

    when i come back i improve my scripts so i can randomly rt and like.
    i have a good feeling about my "news tweets" idea since its the only one where i see a way to monetize it. who knows maybe i can add a "earned today" line to my twitter numbers in 30 days.



    Account A (LS) i reached 50% of my goal!

    I am not being rude but why do it this way when you can just use long tail keywords and get thousands of traffic a day......

    dont get me wrong ,having any social media followers to spam is always good but I fort you wanted grate huge traffic daily but i think it a long term project you can re use traffic from your bot.

    i no that over 300.000 social media followers = roughly the Adsense £25 a day in cash from spamming the users every 3 days with new products.((with product sales looking at £75 a day all in, even that a struggle

    I no the earnings are small but that it auto but adsence only

    dont no what you expect with 10.000 followers only....

    the average social media player on here goes for the 1 million mark before even sending any product posting( just to give you a idea in stats))

    unfortuntly building Followers with social media is so time consuming.

    hey guys my journey is not dead but there is not much happening at the moment and i dont want to post stats everyday ;)

    short recap what happend the last days
    -bot is properly running and i gain followers everyday
    -my news twitt account is not live yet since i have not figured out how to insert my own aff link into tweets. it is possible with dlvr.it but i dont know how to replace bla.com with blo.com (replacing "car" with "elefant" is working)
    -alone with my testing tweets and rss to twitter stuff i got 150 cookies for my aff site. i hope i will be successful with it :)
    -porn account still gains way more followers than the others
    -"money" autoblog doenst get much twitter visits :( so far only about 10 total hits
    -i have seen an account which does "if you like rain sunshine retweet and if you like rain fav" tweets and has around 500 to 1500 retweets per tweet with 150k followers - i think i will implement this aswell to gain more coverage

    -bot is still fine :cool:
    -i finished my news account and made a macro on my vps (although i didnt fix the dlvr issues yet). I will start with small follow unfollow numbers
    - since i will be off for another week i loaded all accounts with pics and i hope nothing goes wrong until i come back :)
    -news account posts all have ...#niche at the end and i hope this will drive in some followers. it tweets every 60 min a max of 4 tweets - reflink once a day
    -i am moving towards the 2k mark for some accounts but im nowhere near earing a single cent :(
    -when i come back i will replace keywords with hastags like: * Dow up 0.02 pct, S&P unchanged, #Nasdaq up 0.38 pct
