    I have some old blogs in wordpress for just about any subject you can think of, I think over 90.. They all have their own good domain name & are all hosted on the same Hostgator account. How can I make some sort of automated way to get them making money? I was thinking of changing them from a blog to just a "One Page Landing" page or something similar and putting a Clickbank product on the front page. So then it just becomes a matter of finding traffic and not worrying about adding content or maintain this many websites. Anyway, I would appreciate some ideas... what would you do? The renewal cost is too much now and I need to get something happening soon. The more I keep them the more it's costing me but each year is harder and harder to let them go as some are over 8 years old while the majority are over 5 years old. None have much traffic and lately no income so I need to figure out some method.

    You should be getting traffic on a few of them, sell the ones that aren't working.

    Try some different methods described here, and divide the sites into 10 methods, that 9 sites per method, you should learn something from that.

    Clickbank/amazon/facebook landing page/ youtube cpa/ some examples

    If you would be interested in a JV let me know, this is something I would be interested in.

    As far as advice goes:

    These are aged domains with linked content right? You could easily put in a clickbank product on each post, or an amazon product on each post. You could convert them all into a generic landing page thats easy to edit and offer a clickbank product. You could even try sourcing some products from alibaba and selling your own products from the landing page.

    I guess it depends on what the niche is or what the majority of the websites are. After that it's just SEO and marketing. Google adwords would be my suggestion.

    Best of luck!

    thanks guys, some very good ideas so far. one question to ask as I'm not sure about this..... If I change them into a one page landing page should I leave the blog and rest of the site up? I don't know why they never get much traffic, a couple get a little more than the others? Anyway, I think I know how to get traffic to them now after spending a lot of time on BHW lately but I want to have them all ready to sell things etc before I do that .... I spent a couple of months last year putting nice templates on each one and basically spending a day on each one making them into a quite good active website. Each one I got fresh and what I thought was original content coming in each day from a guest post network called MyBlogGuest. But After 6 weeks I gave up as it was a lot of work having to approve the articles each day and publish them etc but the main reason I gave up on that is that it made no difference and I got hardly any extra traffic from all that new fresh content. So I just gave up on Google and that is why I would prefer to find an automated way to run them or turn them into a landing page or another idea like selling amazon products or something and then I can just work on getting traffic which I'm getting much better at now after reading stuff here on BHW. I do especially like the idea about trying 10 blogs per method, so splitting them up and testing various methods seems a good idea. Also, the good thing is most have domain names that are good to sell products like Luxury-Products dot com etc (that is not my domain but most have similar shopping type keyword domain names).

    I would suggest taking your highest traffic blogs (Maybe nail down your blogs to ten) focus on them and then start them generating revenue through adsense, clickbank or Amazon.

    As to your question about keeping the blogs and having a generic landing page selling a product, I think this is a good idea. As you said all the content on the blogs are unique that's good. You could potentially turn them into an autoblog in the same niche. Google doesn't really value copied articles however it will look like you have a lot of content and you already have the unique content from before.

    As for easy SEO you could simply have a backlink loop between your websites within the same niche.

    Example:

    Shoe Store -> Blog about shoes -> blog about cleaning shoes -> Shoe Store.

    As you can see each website links to eachother and then back to the beginning, this is called one way backlinks, its good to keep them one way and not link back. (Shoe store links to blog about shoes but blog about shoes doesn't link back).

    Anyway I think I'm getting off topic, once you've got those ten generating revenue just copy the same scheme to your other blogs and you could have a good profitable blog chain.

    If you still need help I wouldn't have a problem helping you on skype. Just PM me your add.

    Hope I helped :)
