    Hey everyone,

    I could really use some help with this!

    Foreword:

    "why the hell would anyone use wordpress.com?". Here's why: Google indexes your blog in a couple of hours, and you get massive link juice from wordpress.com.

    Here's the story so far:

    A month ago I made a wordpress.com blog with 1 article and an affiliate link. It's been getting a nice amount of clicks without much work, no problem.

    Then I had an idea: I made 12 more blogs with wordpress.com - from separate gmail accounts of course. Each one took an hour to make. I used addresses like h t t p : / / 4inkjetsreview wordpress . com, and posted 1 long original high quality product review with an affiliate link on each.

    Over the course of 48 hours, I got the best and fastest click through rates I have ever had. For example, my 4inkjets page got 21 impressions and 16 affiliate clicks just 5 hours after I put it up!

    But, as i'm sure the more experienced of you will have anticipated, they've started to get taken down - 7 in the last 24 hours. They're going down in chronological order, which suggests it's an algorithmic process. I've got 5 blogs left, they're performing great and I want to save them!

    My question:

    Does anyone know exactly how wordpress goes about weeding out affiliate blogs?

    Is there a procedure I could follow to avoid getting the blogs taken down, such as using a proxy, waiting a day between making blogs, cloaking links etc.

    I know its possible because my original affiliate blog has been up for a month.

    I would really appreciate some help with this, thanks for reading.
