Thanks for the free ad traffic and backlinks :beat4:
May I know how is it possible. I mean with which tool?
link farm evolution
care to explain???
let me know ur url and i can tell u if it was me .....
I don't mind people filling my site with content and traffic as long as I can dip my ladle in as well. I need to find a good WPMU plugin that places ads on all blogs.
there are now 2667 blogs on my WPMU site.
that's a lot.
How are you going to monetize it? adsense? isn't it is risky assuming the majority of the posts will be spam?
if adsense doesn't support duplicate content (or whatever the content is) I'll probably just insert a bunch of cpa ads or something
Go with the CPA Ads.
CTR may be a bit lower on autoblogs, but the payouts are better and you won't get your adsense account banned for crappy content. It's set and forget.
Just make sure the plugin you use does not allow the blog creator (or LFE) to add, change or delete ads.
I would also strongly suggest using something like prosper202 or hasoffers to track ad performance.
@afanasi, instead of a plugin what I did in the same situation was create a file on my main account called ads.php which I put my ad code into, and then I hard coded a php_require statement into each of the themes available to my WPMU users that forced the ads.php contents to display on all the blogs.
Doing it like that makes it easy to change the ad code any time you want or need to, and if you want to get really fancy you can set up some rotating ads or whatever in the ads.php file.
Since I run most of my ads on all my sites through a centralized OpenX installation, in my case I just put the OpenX ad delivery code into the ads.php file and that way I can manage the ads and rotations from within my OpenX admin panel.
You've got the right idea here. Most people get pissy about folks creating tons of splogs on their WPMU sites, but not me. Hit me with thousands of them, give me your free content, build backlinks for me and let me place my ads in front of traffic you send me... it's all good
any recommendations on some plugins to use to handle the ads? i'm having a rough time finding decent ones.
also, i need to figure out how to install analytics on every single blog.
I added the adsense into the template code and it worked perfectly.
OpenX? I haven't heard of that. Can that be used with regular CPA ads?
And out of curiosity -- how much traffic are you receiving from all of these splogs you have? Are you making money from ads?
I'm considering setting up another wpmu/buddypress blog network and inviting everyone to spam it as much as they want.
Check your hostings remaining bandwith and hostingspace. You can get really bad moments when you go over the limits. This means paying big checks...
If you have a bit of funds you could try some of theese plugins out:
so far the only thing that's been in the red zone has been the processes.
bandwidth is still managable. though it is steadily growing...it's getting a few hundred hits a day now.
for me personally its good if the contents are not trash but if I'm bombarded with 2k trash content thats a different story.
how old is your wpmu blog and is it hundreds of hits per day or hundreds of unique visitors?
it's probably 1 month old
and i think the number of unique visitors is currently at 180. but according to hostgator's stats it's going up almost exponentially.
i'm guessing that a certain % of those 180 visitors are some of the same people, using proxies and such.
this has only been going on for 2-3 days. so there are a few hundred new blogs every day.
