    Hi, I'm no expert in the world of autoblogging but I came up with an interesting (at least I think so) idea.
    From what I've read online, everyone who makes autoblogs uses some plugins that extract content from other blogs' feeds. As I said I'm no expert at all, but the first doubt that came to my mind is: doesn't Google penalize you for duplicate content? (I assume not, since everyone is doing autoblogs, but a clear answer to this question would be appreciated)... Also, is there a risk of getting banned from AdSense?
    My idea is the following:
    - Create a blog
    - Scrape articles from other blogs in the same niche that are in ANOTHER LANGUAGE
    - Use google translator to translate to your language: google translator seems quite improved from the last time I used it. I tried it yesterday and it just missed some words/sentences... so it's quite fine.
    - Upload new articles to your blog.

    What do you think about this? Of course I could implement a way of automating (almost) everything and this would solve the duplicate content problem (unless somebody is using google translator and uploading raw articles to his blog from the same blog you use :D) and so the chance of getting banned from adsense...
    Any opinion is very appreciated, especially from somebody who has some experience in this field. Thanks :)

    Yes that could work, but the translating would just be plain awful.
    But except for autoblogging plugins, there are also rewriting plugins, like Wordpress Rewrite X.XX that if integrated with WPRobot can post tons of rewritten unique articles totally automated.

    They work with English blog only, am I right?
    Anyway, do somebody knows the answers to the questions:
    1) do you get penalized by Google?
    2) do you get banned from AdSense?

    Ah ok.. so pratically this can already be done, not a new idea at all :D
