    Hey guys I've basically been a lurker on this forum since December and at the start end of April/start of May I started my first autoblog. I just let it sit till now to let it update its blogposts on its own. However, i'm only getting about 5 visitors per week. I'm just looking for some general tips and guidelines to help me through, anything from layout tips, how to drive traffic, to dealing with my server, webhost, etc... As of now i've refrained from putting adsense on just yet. I dont want my site to get sandboxed? Please excuse my noob-ness.

    Adsense won't get you sandboxed, build backlinks, rank for keywords, use twitter to drive direct traffic.

    Use adsense on the left of the site above the fold. Use a bigger ad box and make sure the colors of the add is the same as the text on your site.

    start building backlinks and posting in forums. What about monetization? adsense will not be enough. What other plans do you have? You could also add an autoresponder (mail chimp is free to start) and start building a list for this niche.

    Good luck!

    The template looks good but you don't have seo friendly (website/the-keyword-to-promote) URLs, you might want to fix that. WP should provide an automatic way to do it or search for "seo friendly url .htaccess" with the big g... HTH

    I'm no autoblog-wiz but I think you should promote some good relevant cpa offers. There are a lot of high paying cpa offers in your niche so it might be a good idea. Idk just a thought.

    hi, just checked out your site. you need to promote the site more often. you can use twitter, social bookmarking, etc.. use correct plugin to support the promotion.

    Well it appears that you have a really good start to me. Everything looks really nice. Maybe just throw up some adsense and relevant CPA offers then start promoting.

    A question to all: I just started my first few autoblogs now also, how often should I set WP robot to post? I have it for every 6 hours right now, but I'm afraid that's too much.
