    Over at TheProductJudge, I'm offering unlimited free professional autoblog hosting. There's no need to worry about domains, hosting, or database management. All of it is taken care of. Whether you're brand new to autoblogs or simply don't feel the need to invest, you can take advantage of my free services. Autoblogging has never been easier. At the moment I have a total of 36 wordpress themes, most of which are premium. (Custom fitting themes is time consuming. I have another 150 themes that are being added every day. Hopefully within the next week they will all be completed) I've also added some of the best autoblogging plugins, a few of which are premium as well. Simply activate and configure the plugins and you're off. For content gathering I've incldued WP Robot 2.11. We've added a few options for monitization including Adsense, Yahoo and Kontera. If you own a domain already, you can setup domain mapping.

    If there's a plugin or theme you would like to be added, let me know, and I'll do my best to find and add it. You can read our http://theproductjudge.com/faq/ for some basic answers to some common questions. All of your autoblogs are hosted on our dedicated server. There's no limit to the amount of blogs you can create. To keep our site alive the only catch is 1 ad will be placed on your blog. That's it... You can place as many more as you would like. We have found that the IP associated with our server is having trouble with Gmail. Be sure to check your spam/bulk if you can't find your confirmation email. Keep an eye out for any other announcements. Oh and if you're unsure what an Autoblog is check out our http://theproductjudge.com/2010/04/12/what-is-an-autoblog/ for a descriptive explanation.

    Tutorial on How to Create an Autoblog

    I've created this tutorial to show you exactly how I setup my personal autoblogs. Follow with me and I'll guide you to success.

    This tutorial has been brought to you by http://www.theproductjudge.com/ - Professional, Fast & Premium Autoblog hosting. You can find every plugin mentioned here plus many more! You'll also find over 50 premium themes and more being added every day. And what will this cost you? Nothing! It's 100% FREE! Enjoy!

    Creating your Autoblog
    First and for most, if you haven't already, http://www.theproductjudge.com/wp-login.php?action=register (Your user name will be the name of your first blog/subdomain) Before you can access your blog you need to verify your email address. Within just a few minutes you should receive a confirmation email. If you don't receive your email, http://theproductjudge.com/contact/ our customer support, and your account will be activated manually.

    Adjusting Autoblog Settings
    Now that you're blog has been created, login to your account VIA the admin panel. YourUserName.TheProductJudge.com/wp-admin/ Before choosing a theme or plugin you'll want to change your basic blog settings. Here's a few options I recommend. Scroll down to the "Settings" tab and click "General". First pick a tagline. This will be your site slogan. Next from the settings menu again, click "Privacy". Make sure the box is checked that reads "I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google, Bing, Technorati) and archivers". If you forget this step, your site will not be indexed! Again, remain in the settings menu and click "Permalinks". I recommend you check "Day and name" and press save. This feature will make your URL more user friendly for users and search engines.

    Theme/Pages/Links
    Now it's time to choose a theme for your autoblog. It's common to use the same theme multiple times for different blogs. Click the "Appearance" tab and click "Themes". Browse around and find a theme that fits you best. Once you've selected your theme, head over to the "Pages" tab, click "Edit" and change your About page. Typically I use a universal about me page for all of my autoblogs. Now click the "Links" tab and click "Edit". Here you can add/remove links. You'll want to get rid of some of the default links and add in any other relevant or helpful links.

    Plugins
    Now it's time to activate your plugins. The following is a list of plugins that I use and any settings that should be set. The plugins I use change as I discover new and better plugins. Browse around and find what works best for you. If you find something that we don't have, let us know, and we'll do our best to get it.

    Akismet - Enter your API key to activate this plugin. This plugin will help prevent comment spam.
    All in One Adsense and YPN - This is my favorite advertising plugin. This plugin will place your ads randomly throughout your posts. Simply add your publisher ID and change the ad colors.
    Advertising Manager - Here's another great advertising plugin. With this plugin you can setup a wide selection of ads including random CPA offers. Once you've created an ad, view your widgets panel and drag the ad to your sidebar.
    Easy Privacy Policy - This Privacy Policy is great to protect your site, looks professional, and it includes information that Adsense requires.
    Global Translator - Your visitors can be from any country. I always include this plugin on my sidebar. You can translate your entire site into another language with this plugin.
    Google XML Sitemaps - This plugin will help with Google indexing. It's a map of your site. This plugin is a must.
    Kontera ContentLink - Another great way to earn revenue is by turning random words throughout your articles into advertisements. This plugin does just that. Sign up with Kontera and enter your publisher ID in the Kontera settings.
    MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer - This plugin is a great way to spread your site amongst the internet. The more backlinks you create the better your search engine rankings will be. Run a search and look for a list of popular websites to ping.
    WP OnlyWire Auto Poster - This program has made a huge difference with backlinks. You can use onlywire to send your posts to 30 different social networks. This has created many backlinks for me and has helped tremendously with backlinking.
    Platinum SEO Pack - This plugin is another must. This plugin will allow you to create META tags to help with search engine indexing. Be sure to select appropriate keywords and a keyword rich description.
    SEO Smart Links - This program will turn random words throughout your articles into links to other articles on your blog. You can also setup specific words to link to offers or other revenue generating services. For example, if you have an iPad blog, you may want to link the word "iPad" to an email submit for a free iPad.
    SEO Super Comments - This program will generate extra pages for each comment. Users will have another page with all of their comments. This will give you more pages for search engine indexing.
    Sociable - This plugin will allow you to choose from 100+ different social networks that users can click and post to their social network site.
    StatPress Reloaded - This plugin is a must! It's filled with statistics to help you understand how your blog is performing.
    Twitter Tools - This program can bring in huge amounts of traffic. If you build a Twitter account based on a certain keyword and build a blog based on the same keyword, then post all of your updates to that Twitter account, the traffic will roll in.
    WP-PostRatings - This is a simple plugin that will allow users to rate your posts. It can help attract a users eye and give them more confidence in the article.
    WP Robot - This is one of your most important plugins. This plugin gives you the option to automatically post content from Articles, Youtube, Yahoo, RSS Feeds, and from other locations. I recommend that you post no more than 20 new articles per blog per day. Setting this plugin up is rather easy. First, change your probabilities. If you're creating a blog with only articles, change everything to 0% except for the article section. Change this to 100%. (You can change the probabilities to however you would like to depending on the content you would like) Next head over to "Options". Every source of content has options you can change. Look through it slowly the first time and choose what you would like to setup. After the first run around it'll be easy to setup future blogs. Next you'll want to add some keywords. You can add them 1 at a time or in bulk. Simply enter your keyword and select how often to post content related to that keyword. Once you've added your keyword and set the time it'll run continuously forever.
    Yet Another Related Posts Plugin - Here's another plugin I always use. This plugin will list a couple posts at the bottom of your article that are related to the current article.

    Widgets
    Next you'll want to setup your widgets. Add the Global Translator plugin and any Advertisements you've setup. You may want to add Archives, Categories and Tags as well. These will allow your users to navigate your site easier.

    Moving on to your Next Autoblog
    Now it's time to move on to another autoblog. All of your autoblogs will remain under one user account. Remain logged in to your existing blog and visit the http://www.theproductjudge.com/wp-login.php?action=register page. Continue with selecting your blog name.

    And that's all there really is to it. Rinse and repeat! After finishing one autoblog head over and finish another. The point of an autoblog is to let it run automatically. You should never have to fix it again. Leave it and move on. The larger your blog farm grows the more revenue you can produce. Your goal is to get the search engines to index your sites. By building your blogs on my free hosting service, you'll benefit from existing blogs and their page rankings. Their rankings will bring your blog to the front pages faster than any other normal site. Feel free to http://theproductjudge.com/contact/ me with any questions you may have.

    This tutorial has been brought to you by http://www.theproductjudge.com/ - Professional, Fast & Premium Autoblog hosting. You can find every plugin mentioned here plus many more! You'll also find over 50 premium themes and more being added every day. And what will this cost you? Nothing! It's 100% FREE! Enjoy!

    Please say thanks!

    Note: Your blogs are hosted on our dedicated server which costs a pretty penny every month. To keep TheProductJudge thriving, every blog will have just 1 advertisement placed above articles. No ads will appear on your homepage.

    I'm not sure why my previous thread was removed. There's nothing wrong with my site. I was inspired with an idea and pushed forward with it. Maybe you have some past issues with similar services? With each new blog 1 advertisement is placed on each post. There's nothing to be fooled by. I've mentioned it loud and clear. The sites are run on a dedicated server. I'm not using some cheap hosting to trick my users. I'm offering high speed auto blog hosting. This is a Limited Liability Corporation registered with the US Government. I paid a pretty penny to get this setup. Please refrain from mocking my services when you obviously have't done any research.

    I didn't get a chance to try this out last night but I did sign up. I found the signup process was fine (and I used a gmail account). The email just went into the spam folder.

    I'll setup a blog today and checkout the plugins.

    How? Replace your ads with his? I see the risk is there. But this free service serves a good starting ground for autoblog noobies. When they progress to the stage of making money from autoblog they will have money for their own hosting accounts.

    So it is a fair deal. I give you a no cost training facility and take over your mess when you quit. Be note that a majority of noobie autoblogs are likely be crappy which only live to consume server resources instead of contributing to money making for anyone.

    Why are you saying this? What proof do you honestly have? How do you know I'm not starting a legitimate business of my own? I've owned multiple business in my past. I'm a US citizen, not a scamming Nigerian. As mentioned a million times I've monitized my site and plan to keep the site growing. If you really believe this is an issue than how can I prove to everyone I'm here to stay?

    @OP: I don't care and I don't need to know your service is good or not. But These Dirty Tricks I knows better than you and Excuse me? I'm a project leader and I code better than you too dude. Don't think you are the only one can do this stupid thing.

    once again: Don't ever fall for these free services

    Yes you do need to know whether or not my services are good. You're making false allegations that are harmful to my business. There are no dirty tricks involved. Your status as a coder doesn't matter to me. If you fully think out a business model as an autoblog hoster you'll easily understand the possibilities if put together correctly.

    If you would read my FAQ you can see that users even have the option to remove their blogs and put it on their own hosting.

    On another note, the more popular TheProductJudge becomes the easier it will be for new blogs to become ranked. As we grow it should only continue to get easier.

    I am inclined to try this very good offer but reading from opinions here of some members made me step back a little.

    However, I am giving this free service a chance. I hope I am not creating a mistake.

    Me too. I signed up yesterday and still no activation email.

    Somewhat slack, IMHO!

    I really do appreciate it. I did my best to combat their reasoning. I understand that someone could take advantage of the situation, but that would really only take them so far. I'm in this for the long haul. Not a short bust and run.

    PM your email address. I'll get you activated right away.
    I don't. No warez or Porn is allowed. Google will ban all Adsense accounts if allowed.
