After I recently launched the most powerful Auto Blogging Software, there had been a lot of requests on the best practices and usage on the software to make more money from automated blogs safely. So here it is.
First of all, automated blogs are just like regular blogs and the only difference is you don’t need to take the pain in updating content regularly and the auto blogging software will grab content from various other websites you specify and posts them to your blog.
It might sound as “stealing content” but it becomes completely ethical when you give a link-back to the original article which the software can handle easily.
Where to start:
As every business begins with a keyword research, you don’t need to get deep into this. Just find a keyword that has some decent competition going around. You can find broad niches too and then split them into sub-niches on different sub-domains or different blogger blogs interlinked to each other.
For self-hosted WordPress type blogs, I would suggest having not more than 5-7 sub-domains and for Blogger.com, don’t have more than 5-7 blogs on one Google account. You can easily sign-up for another Google account from a different computer and have another set of blogs in it. The reason for not having more than 7 blogs is because it raises red-light in common sense as a normal person cannot have more than 5 blogs updated regularly and may lead to deletion of blogs.
I have around 5 blogs on each account and a total of 7 accounts all going well over 6 months without any problems so far. I don’t anticipate any either as I’m on the safer side by using different themes for different blogs or I try to make them look as genuine as possible.
For WordPress, I always use the unlimited hosting plan from HostGator as they’re the cheapest or at least worth for the price. I can host unlimited domains in one single account and they also have the best support team by far. Been using them for years and never had any issues. If you don’t have an account with them yet, I strongly recommend you get one. You can use my affiliate link to sign-up and get your first month hosting completely free!
Ok, so once you have an hosting account ready, start building blogs. For WordPress, choose a decent domain name with main keywords in the name and set it up with Hostgator. Use Fantastico to install WordPress. Then apply your favorite theme, install popular plug-ins, insert Adsense code and so on. I usually have them all in one package so right after I install a blog; I upload the package and enable them immediately from WordPress backend.
For free Blogger.com, creating a new blog is just as easy as clicking 4 or 5 buttons and you’re done. I recommend having an equal number of WordPress blogs and free Blogger.com blogs.
Setting Up The Software:
Okay, so once the blog is built, you’re going to find the source websites from where the content will be grabbed. Just do a simple Google search for your niche and you will find some top websites that have their content updated regularly. Grab their RSS feed URL and add it to the software. Likewise, repeat with other websites too. You can also read my short article on how to find feed sources for your blog.
I would recommend adding 3-5 feed sources for each blog you create.
So till now, you must have spent about 15 minutes in creating the blog and half hour to find feed sources and setting up the software. So roughly in less than an hour, you have a blog ready which can be updated regularly on a single click from the software.
Everyday you’re going to repeat the process and build more blogs. Don’t build more than one blog each day as it is easier to stay on track this way. Also, for the remaining time, focus on getting traffic to your blog.
Once a while, do some link-building, social book marking and this should be enough. I usually out-source this task but for the beginning you can do it yourself. Once a blog gets indexed and gets a steady amount of traffic, you can forget it for a couple of months. Later re-do the same link building and sorts to keep it alive in search engines but the content that gets updated regularly by the software should be enough for standing up in the search engines by itself.
You should always focus on building more blogs. It is very easy to make $1 per day from one blog. If you have 50 blogs, it is $50 per day. Don’t just forget these blogs after creating and setting them up. Once a while do some link-building and social bookmarking as there is no point in having a blog without traffic.
You can use the single Adsense account for all your blogs in the empire. But when you’re blog count increases over 50 or when you start making over 100 per day on one Adsense account, I would suggest you apply for another one in a different name. Not mandatory but just to be on the safe side. You can then split the blogs between each account.
Always go with the best placements of Adsense. There are already a few High Adsense CTR themes available for download but they all don’t look good and makes it obvious as a MFA (Made For Adsense) type of website which Google won’t like much.
In my opinion, every theme is a High CTR theme and it depends on the way you place the ads. For example, place a large rectangular block of ad (336×280) just below the title and a banner styled (468×60) ad at the end of the content. And always choose to display “Text Only” ads so no image ads are shown. This has worked best for me.
Always focus on building more blogs. Don’t put all the eggs in one basket. Split all your blogs into different accounts and different platforms. And to every blog you build, don’t forget to do some promotion like link building and social bookmarking once a while. Once in 3 months should also be fine.
Always set the blogs to be updated with not more than 5 posts per day. You can easily set this in the software. Split each post with interval of 60 minutes or even more and they will get scheduled to be published on future time automatically.
Look out for more niches. Rinse and repeat the process. Closely watch the stats. If performance or visitors to any blog decreases, it’s time to do some social bookmarking. Stay tuned for more.
