I currently have 5 autoblogs.
I have not made much BUT my twitter accounts are lacking. I simply dont have a ton of fallowers, I request 50-150 a day. I hear of others requesting much higher with no problems at all.
If i can get traffic, im sure I will start to make some green.
How are you targeting your followers?
What Twitter software are you using?
You need to try and get in the minds of the people who you think will be interested in your sites.
For example, if you had a site advertising weight loss products you could target people who have included in their tweet:
"really could do with shedding a few pounds"
"I feel so fat"
You get the idea.
yea, im using tweet attacks free edition, trying to get my hands on the unlimited version; the free edition only allows me to use 5 accounts.
I do target my fallowers. Generally to the keyword, not a phrase.
Can I find somewhere a working free version of tweetatacks? I have a huge website with 200 subdomains getting 0 visitors daily and is up 2 months does someone has any suggestion for me how to aproach this ? Thanks in advance
Yea, you can pay for it. Come on guys. People spend money to make good products. Don't screw them.
It's all down to finances.
There's a free version of Tweet Attacks which (I think) can handle 5 Twitter accounts.
Assuming you have 1 Twitter account per each blog, then maybe pick your 5 most important blogs and work with those to begin with?
Then when you can see things starting to happen positively, you could either speculate to accumulate by purchasing the full version or wait until you have the money to reinvest back into the software.
My next plan is to move Tweet Adder onto a VPS so I can have it do all the follow/unfollow 24 hours a day and don't need the computer on.
I'm not sure what the recommended max number Twitter accounts to be running per IP is, but even if it's 1:1 ratio, I could gradually get more IPs as an add-on with the VPS for each extra account.
I'm currently using tweet adder w/ the version that allows for 5 accts, and while it seems great for just 5, it also seems like it might be inferior to "Attack". The biggest issue is that to "grow" 5 accounts takes a heck of a long time. Yea, it's money, but I'd rather start 25 new accounts than 5.
As for VPS, didn't even look into that option. Does Atacks not have it as an option?
As for IPs, it's largely a question of how much activity per acct. Right now I have five "quality" accts that I'm growing slowly and some are only partial auto. So, I never do one action more than once a day for all five it's it's done over 50 times. That could be suspititious. But once they all have over 500 followers, I'll have to get seperate IPs.
Very true about accounts taking a long time to take off.
You're looking at a few weeks before you can realistically expect them to have 2000 followers, unless it's a very popular subject who think of you as an authority figure in that field.
A good idea is for new accounts, creating an RSS alert on Google News and then use TwitterFeed to grab the updates and add them your Twitter account tweets.
This will mean whilst your building up your followers, your Twitter account will publish news on that subject and then link to the source.. this could be a newspaper or website, it'll be updates and won't need a website/blog for the time being. I'm pretty sure a new Twitter account which hardly ever tweets, raises a flag.
Then, when the Twitter account has a decent amount of followers (say at least 700+) you could then create the blogs... it just means your Twitter accounts are building whilst you work your way through creating blogs, as Twitter accounts are quicker to set up than a nice professional looking blog.
One of the few downsides to Tweet Adder and that's if you're using public proxies, you need to set each account up every time you load the software up. If the proxies are dead or can't be accessed then TAdder will return an error you need to try again with that account.
This means at the start of the day, it could take 20 minutes to get 20 accounts up and running, before you leave it... but if all those public proxies die, Tweet Adder looks like it's following and unfollowing (as in the numbers go up and down), but the account actually isn't. Not sure what happens in this situation on Tweet Attacks - does it alert you that all proxies are dead?
That's why I'm using my main, most popular blog and T account on my home IP address.
I hope that makes sense
Awesome post. The more I read from multiple forums, the more questions I have. I plan to scale all this pretty big, so I want to start with that in mind.
Some questions that I think will clear things up for a lot of people:]
If you're going to work with, say, 20 T accts you need private proxies. Expensive, but necessary for TA and 20. However, I also see that TA can be run off a VPS. I don't know how that's done and will read more here. BUT if one were to set up blogs on 5 VPS accts, perhaps with 3 different hosts, that would solve having to pay for private proxies. You're going through different IPs that both host your blogs and let you run instances of TA. Also don't know if TA license allows this. Might not be allowed off of one license.
Also, I'm now trying to understand if tweet adder and TA is from the same company? And there is another app. which ties in, TA2 which is mainly for creating 100s or 1000s of accounts. Are people using any of these 3 apps together?
As for tweet adder and proxies, not really necessary. I'm using the same IP for 4 T accounts. However, my activity on each is not that heavy. If I were doing a lot of auto stuff from tweet adder, I'd have to consider private proxies. In general, from past experience, I don't like public proxies. Time consuming and also they could raise a flag. So I'm staying away from the completely. Either way, pay to play by spend some good coin on multiple VPS or private proxies which will NOT go down during the day. If you use public and they fail during the day, yea it will stop running unless you're keeping an eye on it and keep putting new publics in.
I like your rss idea. Seems like there are a lot of ways to get readable even useful content, and that's not as much of a challenge right now. I've been doing my own tweets through tweet adder and importing from a text file, but it's cumbersome.
Feedback welcomed and I hope I help others a bit.
The way I see it, public proxies are your best bet if your finances don't allow you to invest in VPS and Private Proxies - or; in my case, you're wanting to be into some profit to then reinvest into these.
I'm not sure if Tweet Attacks auto changes IP if the one it's using, suddenly dies. If it doesn't, then it should.
As for your 4 T accounts on a single IP. I seem to remember that 3 is the recommended maximum, but don't quote me on that. I've read 1 poster running 2, pretty heavily, but really, if a blog is making you money it needs to be on a single IP - with 3-4 accounts running, if they haven't yet taken off. That way, if anything bad was to happen, you wouldn't have lost any coinage. As soon as they do take off; perhaps over 2000 followers(?), then move them to a private proxy.
I guess it's a case of finding some great value Private Proxies which can be trusted and/or VPS as with VPS it allows you to set it up on the server and then shut your computer down and it let it run 24/7.
I agree with all you are saying. I think people ask the "now many on one IP" and it's just not that simple. Depends on how "aggressive" you're using TA for example for each acct. I'm using twitter adder for 3 weeks-- don't know who that hell owns that app.-- and haven't had problems, but I'm really be pretty hands on with the 4 accts.
Will be getting TA soon.
With regards to Tweet Attacks vs Tweet Adder I think Tweet Adder wins hands down if you're building up your followers list.
I just need to now really scale up the amount of blogs I run and how many Twitter accounts as a handful really isn't enough.
How is everyone getting on with this method?
I must say overall this is certainly no money spinner, especially if you only do the Amazon + Adsense as covered in the earlier versions about 12 months ago.
The blogs that are doing well for me are the ones that I'm semi-automating and making sure the content is right.
For a start with WP Robot, I never bothered with the Article module. Both options often display chracters which shouldn't be there.
I have a Twitter account with over 2000 followers and it brings in about 10 visits to the blog a day. It's on a popular subject, but youtube clips simply don't seem to work at all.
What's everybody else's experience with this? Is anybody using anything else for content other than Amazon and Youtube? I think those 2 together look very automated personally so there must be better ways.
A lot of the Shezblogs that I've found (and I've found a lot), have been left and not been updated for months. The Twitter accounts connected to the sites have nothing more than 1000 visitors, so whoever made all these decided it wasn't worth sticking with.
The only 2 I'm really bothering with have over 14,000 Twitter followers but it's a very popular subject with lots of content to include, ignoring Amazon automated listings and Youtube.
Muchacho, any news? How are youdoing with this methodat the present? Are you still doing it?
I have 2 websites which I'm carrying on with, but not created any more.
The are both semi-automated, but the Twitter accounts are always growing via Tweet Adder.
