Build a Blog Empire For Free - No Excuses!

PLEASE NOTE: I've added a new thread that is a follow-up to this one:

__________________________________________________ ___

Because I'm tired of hearing about how people can't make money online because they don't have any money to invest to get started, I made this quick video. This is just one of many ideas you can take action on without spending a nickel. Set up the blogs as I show, ping them, get some social bookmark links. You can set one of these up every day and do all you need to do. Set and forget in about an hour. Spend one lousy hour a day on this if you're just starting out. It's all free, and if you stick to it, you will start to see some traffic. Then it's just a matter of making money from that traffic. Stick some Adsense ads on your blogs... Clickbank if it applies.... whatever you want.

The main thing is to take action consistently. And don't bother trying to make money from these blogs right away. Just spend your time setting up as many as you can. Go back a few weeks later and add Adsense or whatever you want once they're established and maybe getting some traffic.

One final point about this... This isn't going to make you rich. Not even close. But if you do this every day for a month or two, it can easily earn you enough in passive income to pay your car payment, electricity bill, gas, etc. every month. So stop looking for reasons to fail and TAKE ACTION!!! You (yes you!) can do this.

    This is a really awesome idea..and i'm definitely going to do it right now haha I have a TON of PLR stuff that i have no use for. My only question is..would you recommend doing this for all of the articles? For example would u use all 25 articles on the blog and drip feed them for like 25 days or more? Or is there a limit.

    Also u said that you can ping them and do some bookmarking. Is that all for traffic generation? What I mean is..if you are building alot of these then you can't really focus on any real traffic generation methods right? So do you ping and bookmark every post as they are feeded through? Like do I bookmark and ping the first post..and then once the second posts I go and bookmark and ping that one? Wouldn't that get really hectic and time consuming once I have alot built?

    Please clear this up so that I can start asap. thanks for the idea :]

      You're overthinking. I know because I do it all the dang time too! Set up as many drip feed posts as you have articles in that category. If I had 10, that's how many I'd post over about 10 days. If I had 100 all about the same topic, that's how many I'd set up over that many days.

      Re: traffic, this is a numbers game and the focus needs to be on more and more blogs, not link building. Just ping and social bookmark the first post when you post it. Once Google finds your new blog, they'll come back to see if you've updated it. When they see it being updated daily, they'll get into the habit of checking and indexing your new posts regularly.

      But look, these are PLR articles that you got for free (unless you have some good paid PLR already). A lot of other people have it and it's probably all out there and already in Google's index. Don't worry about that. Put your head down and keep adding new blogs. That's where you want to spend 95% of your time. The sheer volume will start netting your some traffic and then you can go back and start monetizing that traffic.

      Keep it simple! It will work. Steady, consistent, daily action is the key.

        Curious as to how many hits folks are seeing in the Adsense account versus clicks?

        Zeuss, thank you very much for proving this info. I was completely lost in IM and was wandering from one way of making money to another.. without actually making money. I put out a single blog over 18 months ago and started seeing results about 7 months ago after monetized the blog. About 2 weeks ago I started another blog (not PLR but my passion as a real estate investor) and my Adsense hits went up quite a bit. Now thanks to you (I just saw this thread yesterday for the first time), I'm going to concentrate on blogging (PLR style) while monetizing with Adsense and adding either Amazon or Clickbank items. Thanks for all of your help!!!

    ahh I see..alright i'll set up my first blog right now. THanks alot :].
    One more question about monetization. Do you have any ideas what works best? Like since it's a blog it would probably be best to just set up a banner for any affiliate offers I have that work with it right? But should i run adsense as well? Do the two work well together?

      the best way is to test and see what is works best for your blog readers, for example try to use adsense image ads for a week and do the same with link ads for about a week and see when did u earn the most

    Well you know I'm gonna recommend Adsense. I'm all about the Adsense, ya know.

    But think about that later on. Your early goal is to do this daily until you have maybe 40-50 blogs out there. Only then would I even think about how to make money from them. Something to consider here is that if you stick Adsense up right away, you run the risk of a human editor seeing your many blogs and raising red flags. You want to show any curious eyes that these are just good old informational blogs early on.

      Now who would have guessed adsense from you :-).


      This is not limited . Think about it

      It is a adsense haven. A affiliate marketers dream. Easily build a list . did anyone say anchor text linked to your money site (100 articles


      hmmmm 200 back links 0h wait a minute times that by 50 blogs )

      Very true. I always let a new site sit for a few months before I put any AdSense on it.

    John, another good post and I see you're getting your money's worth out of Jing

    (good product and you're the one who convinced me to get it too last year) (reminds me that the license renewal is about up)

    Anyway, love your post and I too have been pushing Blogger as a quick and easy approach to getting sites up fast with very little effort.

    Adsense is a great idea but I would also add that Amazon has jumped on to Blogger too. They, Amazon, have an easy Gadget (Blogger's version of the Widget) that you can put up alnog with the Adsense.

    If you have a bunch of PLR on "gardening" then put an Amazon Gadget for "Garden Tools".

    (in the words of an audience for a Ron Popeil Ronco infomercial) "Just set it and forget it."

    It's like easy money. And money is just as good as cash these days

        Thanks, John. I just finished posting on a blogger blog, and took a break to see what was kicking around over here. Now here's something else I want to do! (Darn you, Zeus! )

        Honestly, though, this is a brilliantly simple idea. It can be especially helpful to someone just starting out.

          Don't mean to argue, but I think Zeus lives on Mount Olympics or however you spell it

          The Hades-guy is another god.

          Here's what About.com has to say about it:

          "The god Hades, son of the Titans Cronus and Rhea, received the Underworld for his realm, when his brother gods, Zeus and Poseidon, received dominion of the sky and sea.

          The Cyclops gave Hades the helmet of invisibility to help in the gods' battle with the Titans -- the titanomachy. Perseus later borrowed this helmet to decapitate Medusa.

          The name Hades means "The Invisible." The realm he rules over is also called Hades."

          With that said, I cannot help but thinking about Die Hard III, when I write "Hey Zeus" :-D

          And I guess John doesn't look Puerto Rican either.

    It's actually a boring story about my nickname. My very first computer password way back in like 1990 was Zeus66. Lame, I know. But it stuck and people have called me that ever since. Wish there was a more exciting story behind it, like being imbued with godlike powers. Alas, it is not so.

      John,

      I can relate to this...that's how I ended up with Killer Joe. I needed a handle back then and I was listening to a Benny Golson jazz standard "Killer Joe" (I love that song ) and the rest has been history since the mid '90s.

      Luckily, I recently learned how to spell my own name so I'm trying that out.

        Sorry Charles, but removing the navbar it isn't against their TOS.

        Here's what they say:

        "While we don't recommend or support the removal of the Blogger navbar,
        there is nothing in our Terms of Service that explicitly mandate its
        use."

        Here's where they say it:

        This is a great kick up the pants post for anybody who is stuck in a paralysed state of over-complicating things and not taking action.

        People think that their sites and blogs need to be perfect and they over complicate things.

        This plan is like shoving a firecracker up your behind and getting you started.

        Once it is up and running then start making it pretty and monestise it by adding images, Adsense, affiliate links etc. etc.

        The site will evolve naturally and will end up being something that you will be proud off.

        Do as Zeus says and take action.....TODAY. Get it up there and go to bed tonight proud that you have taken action.

        It all it takes is just ONE STEP to give you the momentum you need.

    As usual, the biggest obstacle is to much of thinking "how to make money" instead of doing something to make money.

    I applied the same principle and even today i profit from my 40+ sites that i built on the "1 site per day" method. And it doesn't have to be only blogs, this apply to anything. Let's face it, a *.info it's 1$ and 6$ per month unlimited domain hosting.

      Why?

      The articles aren't being added to the site in one go, they are being drip fed over a period of time (over 3 weeks if spread out by one per day).

          This is not actually true.

          Duplicate content is not really an issue.

          Some of the biggest and most popular sites on the Internet consist of a large amount of duplicate content.

          Besides, Zeus encourages you to add a new title, and if you were worried about duplicate content it would take minutes to rewrite the original first paragraph, add an introduction or a conclusion.

        The point of the post was to get people to take action and get up and running, not over complicating things.

        If you find that the blog is one that you think is going to be a moneyspinner or that you enjoy adding content to, then definitely grab a domain and host the site yourself.

        Once people get in the habit of taking action and adding content it is far easier to take the next step and invest in domain names, setting up a designated blog and creating an authority site.

        Some people are hesitant to take that initial first step.

          What is the fear? If your blog is overly promotional and it does get removed by blogger - there's no pain and you lose no money. If you are dripping articles into the blog this isn't too fast - it's consistent.

          But, Google doesn't love copied content. It's against their webmaster guidelines.
          You are interpreting that guideline incorrectly - articles are syndicated.

          Some will take this simple method and run with it and some will find all sorts of reasons not to do anything. What do you have to lose except a bit of time?

    OK, just woke up and have some thoughts on some of the worries here...

    First, thank you Gary for carrying the water on this while I slept. LOL Second, it is legitimate to worry about how Google will respond to this. That's why you don't want to try to monetize it right away. Just set each blog up and drip feed content. Then go back later and work in some ways to monetize the traffic.

    Also, try using some of the free Blogger templates you can download at Blogger Templates Many of them remove the nav bar at the top (that includes the blog reporting link) without you having to change or add anything to the template. You can see an example of one of those templates in action on the sample blog I set up for this: Camera Bags And Cases

    That blog now has 25 PLR articles set to drip feed once every day or two for the next month or so. And I will not add any Adsense or affiliate links at all until at least 3 weeks go by. You need to let them age a bit and get more content on them first. The combination of using a custom template and not trying to make money right out of the gate tends to keep you flying under their radar.

    I do highly recommend that you change at least the titles of your PLR articles before adding them. It's even a good idea to change up the articles a bit, but that does take time when you're adding several articles to each blog. Just try to introduce a small amount of difference to each before you set them up to post.

    Also, consider setting up a new gmail account every few blogs. Just keep track of which blogs are assigned to each account and you won't present such an obvious footprint. Doesn't take more than a spreadsheet or even Notepad to keep track of it.

    Finally, you can do this same thing with cheap .info domains (about $1 each) and something like HostGator's Baby hosting, which is about $10/month for unlimited domains. I have about 100 domains on one $10/month acct with HostGator and have never had any problem of any kind. Easily one of the best values on the Web.

    As Gary reminded us all - this is about taking action NOW and not overthinking it all. I"m as guilty as the next person of falling prey to "analysis paralysis." You have to kick yourself into gear and just do it. If a few blogs get flagged or even removed, so what? Keep going and don't let one thing like that get in your way. Keep putting up new blogs with this drip feed system. Keep going back to add ways to make money from them after a few weeks. There is so much PLR out there you'll never run out. Trust me on that!

        Yes, I knew there was a good chance it would get flagged as soon as I decided to use it as an example for this thread. There aren't just nice people who visit this forum. I'm sure someone here reported it. It's ok... I knew when I set it up that it was a kamikaze mission for that particular blog, most likely. Plenty more where that came from.

        And here's another thing about getting your blogs flagged. Make sure you actually check the emails you set up at gmail. You'll be alerted about the flaggings and if you respond quickly they usually leave it alone. Even if they don't, big deal. They don't take long to put up, so you just replace the ones that occasionally get taken down.

      Blogger is good, but like you state, nothing beats having your own domain and hosting account, unless you get your web hosting for free...

      Not all free web hosts are the same. You can get just about everything that Hostgator offers using a free account that is perfect for implementing this plan: Full cPanel, no ads or banners, one-click wordpress installation, etc.

      So get a free account, install WordPress with a free theme, and you'll be on your way.

      The key (as everyone has stated before but it is worth repeating) is to TAKE ACTION! No more Excuses!

      Why spend the dollar on a .info when you can do the same thing Blogger does: set up a subsite? At my host (Dreamhost), and I assume others, you can create as many subsites as you want on top of a domain for free. You just register, say, www.baldguyswithshades.com for $10 and you can quickly have cameralover.baldguyswithshades.com, bicyclerider.baldguyswithshades.com and so forth for free. You could get fancy and associate your subsites with the theme of the main domain name or pick very general domain name, as Blogger/Blogspot did.

        Yes, as was noted earlier in the thread. I knew when I created it for the example in this thread that some jack*ss here with nothing better to do would report it. No biggy. Took me all of about 30 minutes to set up.

        Difference between backlinks from the same core domain vs. a lot of different domains. If you got serious, you could set up a reseller hosting acct and pay HostGator or whoever a bit extra per domain every month to give each one a different IP.

        But did you actually watch the video and read this thread? For about the umpteenth time, this is not about a long-term job killing income. It's about a quick way to make some part-time cash for about an hour of work a day. Period. If you're really into making something like this into a full-time business model, Blogger is a bad idea and even a bunch of subdomains is only a slightly less bad idea, imo.

      Hi - I love this idea, but where can you get .info domains as cheap as that. Here in the UK they are $10 or so per year.

      Thanks for the great advice and nice simple plans. If you got a penny for every blog that got created by people after reading this post you'd be a happy man...

      Thanks again!
      How are your traffic stats? I think its great that you have built all these sites, but unless people are visiting them...

      I think what you said is the right thing to do. Pause for a few weeks and concentrate on link-building to the sites, so that they become visited. Without traffic they will just be virtual ghost-sites.

      By the way , its not my site. Nothing to do with me, but I rely on it when I create a new domain. It works a treat. Always gets me indexed v quickly without doing anything else.

        Do you need to do anything additional in the 5 windows that it pops up for you? Whenever I submit a website it closes the 5 pop ups after like 15 seconds. Just want to make sure it's working correctly.

          No. Thats all. Just enter your URL and turn off the pop up blocker until it finishes. Nothing more. Easy and it works.

        traffic is zilch......that's why I'm going to now concentrate on building links. Plus, I have no monetization in place either....it's definitely a long term project and not one that I expect to make money with even in the next six months! Long term passive, that's my goal. If I could just pay my car pmt each month by doing this it would take so much strain off!

    Allison,

    No. I've had them flagged before, but not very often. It helps I think to use one of the alternate templates as I mentioned earlier. The idea is to show them that you're not just trying to make money right off the bat, so don't put up any ads right away. And then if you use a custom template that just happens to not include the nav bar at the top, well you didn't do anything overt to remove it. It just came that way. It's when you go in with the intention of altering the templates they provide in the standard set-up that I think this may raise a flag.

      I don't know if that's not good or not, but obviously it ties all the accts to you. It's a footprint. You might try clearing your cookies, shutting down your browser, and then opening it back up before you register each gmail account. I don't believe they do phone verification every time. So you might try backing out before completing a new acct set-up and starting over. I believe I read somewhere that can work.

        Hey Zeus

        Thanks for the great info. I just signed up for Adsense. You mentioned doing a 5:1 ratio for blogs to gmail account. What about multiple Adsense accounts? Does that blog/gmail ratio hold true for that? Is there a problem having one Adsense account for all your blogs? Seems like it would be beneficial for quicker payouts.

          You'll violate Google's TOS if you try to register more than one Adsense acct, but you could get a family member or trusted friend to do it, I suppose. I haven't ever tried that, but I know others who have done it and not had any problems. I think the main thing is to hold off on adding any kind of ads to these blogs until they've had time to age and are showing more content.

          You could also just use them purely to get backlinks to your "money" sites. Never put ads on them. Just go back after they age and add links to your sites that are set up to make you money. Plenty of people do that kind of thing and then you really never have to worry about the other issues about Adsense or Blogger acct problems.

        Okay, this is for folks who don't mind doing a little work. That means actually
        writing your own articles.

        Here's the 5 cent tour of this simple system.

        1. Go to Google Trends and see what's hot in Entertainment. You want to
        pick somebody who has been around for a while (not just a new face) but
        who has something really big going on that might be going on for a while.
        Most of this will be sensationalist crap, yeah I know...leave your ego at the
        door. There is nothing wrong with talking about Britney's boobs.

        2. Set up a blog about the celebrity and follow the events on a daily basis.
        Whatever happens, report it.

        3. Mix the event stuff in with background info. Put up a list of movies
        the celeb has been in. Maybe put up some reviews. If the person is a
        musician, write some reviews on their CDs or just songs. Hey, most stuff
        is up at YouTube anyway so you don't even have to buy the damn CD.

        4. Do this for about 3 or 4 weeks WITHOUT monetizing it. Let this REALLY
        turn into an authority blog on the person. Once you see you start getting
        some traffic, THEN hit the Adsense and Amazon stuff.

        The trick is finding somebody who is popular but isn't so off the charts
        that you'll have a hard time getting traffic. Bookmarking each blog post
        will help IF you go to as many bookmarking sites as possible.

        I have quite a few of these out there and while Amazon sales are spotty
        at best, the Adsense revenue, after a while allows me to get a bank
        deposit to my account every single month.

        If you do just one of these authority blogs a week (will take about 7 hours
        to build one with enough content) at the end of a year, you will have 52
        of these suckers out there.

        Each one, after a time, SHOULD bring you at LEAST $50 a month Adsense
        income.

        Do the math.

        $50 x 52 blogs = $2,600 per year on autopilot after the first year as long
        as that celeb is still alive. And God forbid they die...well, let me put it
        this way, I have 2 celeb blogs out there for those who passed away in
        the last 2 years and they're still getting traffic every single day.

        You will never get rich doing this, but for an hour's work each day (unless
        you have something more productive to do) it's free and it will bring in
        some cash.

        John...great thread from you as usual.

          That's exactly how to think about this little scheme. It's not a "quit your job and bank millions" kind of thing. It's a way to either build your own blog network to get backlinks on demand (hint hint) or a way to get a Google paycheck (Adsense) or maybe some affiliate commissions coming your way. It's potentially one income stream among what should be several. You don't ever want to put all your eggs in one basket in your online business. Trust me on that one, as someone who watched a six-figure business evaporate quickly because I got lazy and relied too heavily on a couple of big customers. (This was several years ago but it took awhile to recover and was not a fun time in my life).

          Diversify. Set up as many little residual income streams as you can. Some of them will grow into bigger streams of income. The point is, you can do this starting RIGHT NOW without spending a penny. Invest an hour a day and do it consistently. Spend another hour on another plan. Even if you work full-time doing something else, you can find 10 hours a week to put into this and maybe one or two other ideas.

          Resolve to take action. That really is what separates the dreamers from the doers.

        Let's say you were doing this for 3 months, building 1-2 blogs each day... How much daily income do you think you could net if you had each with a relevant but non-competitive clickbank product on it?

        This is an effective strategy that I have been using for years.

        SEO tip: Keep your blog themed around one main keyword phrase and try to get a the keyword into the domain name or at least the url to help you rank for it.

      Remember that there are other places to get free email accounts other than Google. Or you can use multiple domain emails if you own a domain.

        I know, but every time I use Blogger, it says "You must have a Google Account to use Blogger".

        And it always says "Sign Into Blogger with Your Google Account".


        Is there some way to use Blogger WITHOUT a Google Account?


        If you click "Create A Blog", it takes you to the steps, and this is the first one:

        Step 1:


        Create a Google Account

        This process will create a Google account that you can use on other Google services. If you already have a Google account perhaps from Gmail, Google Groups, or Orkut, please sign in first

            The point was to not have such a massive foot print, namely that you have to verify your Google Account with a cellphone text message, well, if you have 100 Blogs and they all have to be Google Accounts/Gmail, then you have all of those blogs, even with 100 different Gmails, they are all still tied to the same phone number.

            Huge footprint.

          You are correct. I haven't set up a new Blogger account in a while and I forgot about their new-ish "one ring to bind them" rule for all Google accounts.

    In theory, Amazon associates program should be fine, they did just announce a partnership.

    Again, in theory. Google seems to be skitzo sometimes.

    Zeus, I'm pretty sure every Gmail account requires text message verification. Would be interesting if there is some sort of virtual text message phone numbers for ultra cheap?? Something.

      I've just created two new accounts in the last few hours and neither of them required any verification.

      As John (Zeus) suggested above, if they do ask for verification it's random so just back out, clear your cache and try again.

        This is a step I started last month and once I did one, it was faster than I thought. My question is for Zeus or anyone using Blogger: How do you drip feed content on it without manually doing it everyday? I tried to back-date a post and dang if it didn't post the same day anyway!

        I also have my tiny blog on my Hostgator account and scheduled posts there, but didn't see how to do it for Blogger.

        Thanks to anyone with an answer.

      I use drip feeding on all my Wordpress based websites. Really its just post-dating, which makes sense.

      Newspapers do it.

      I also mix in 2-3 short "normal" blog posts between each PLR article (I rewrite mine, takes 5-10 minutes using method from Zeus) and I think this gives the site more content and it looks more "legit" to humans. Doesn't take much extra time. Have one piece of content drop per week or so, and you could very quickly post-date an entire years worth in very little time.

        I know it has been said before but remember that you can do exactly the same drip-feed using self-hosted Wordpress. The advantage of that is that you control the whole install, so there is no way anyone can block or delete your account.

          In fact it's probably the only way to go. Keep in control and build your own network in fact you don't need to buy a domain name for every site, although highly recommended, pick a generic name for your site and then run your other sites as sub domains.

          Better to be on a sub domain of your own than "Bloggers'.

          Just my thoughts,

          The disadvantage is that it is not free.

          Money, skill, training, and experience can indeed make your blog empire better.

          But the originally presented approach works without any of those things.

    Thanks for the video... unfortunately getting a high ranking for this method would be pretty difficult, but lets say that you get 1 click per day (pretty generous in my opinion).

    For MOST topics, this will give you 5 to 15 cents (especially given that this is PLR).

    So, our income per month becomes $3.00/mo given the assumption of 10 cents per click per day for 30 days. Let's say we wanted more money than $3 (which most probably do)...

    To make $1000 extra a month, then you'd have to make roughly 333 blogs... which, given the assumption of 1/2 hour per blog, you can create 2 blogs per hour.

    so... 333 divided by 2 blogs per hour = ~167hrs to create all your blogs...divided by 40 (for a 40hr work week) is about one month to create all your blogs ... ONLY if you are working full time on creating them.

    $1000/167hrs means you are getting paid about $6/hr (below minimum wage). So while you are right you will make money by doing this method, I personally think my time is more valuable. Plus, you have to consider that after all X number of blog posts are done posting, traffic will likely decrease (and chances are your blogs will only get a few visitors anyway). Means more blog posts are needed to maintain relevance and to get in front of more people.

    My numbers of course are influenced by my assumptions, which are purposely realistic (or maybe a bit inflated)... now could there be exceptions to this? Yes, maybe. and of course I am assuming that clickbank isnt being used...

    regardless of all my rhetoric, you're right in concluding that money can be made with this method.



    SETUP = 30 minutes
    INCOME = 10 cents (assuming you get clicks from day one... which wont happen)

      That's pretty much how I came up with "Boogie Jack" 13 years ago. I donated some graphics to a public domain graphics web site and they wanted to know who to credit the content to. This was when I first came online and didn't have my own website and no plans to build one. I was listening to a blues song and one of the lines was something like, "you can sure boogie, Jack." I picked that for the name to credit the images to.

      Later I was contacted by Ziff-Davis (ZDNet now) about including the graphics on a CD book insert. Then they were used in some computer games. By the time I got around to building a website "Boogie Jack" was known and I wasn't, so I opted to get a running start and use the alias.

      ...but you can earn from those blogs month after month, so each month the hourly wage goes up. That's why I like creating information products. Each sale raises the value of the time that I spent in creating it.

      Also, if you choose your niches well, you can make more per click than the amount you used in your example.

    Yeah, I made a point of saying that this wasn't going to make anyone rich. This can easily pay a monthly bill or a car payment, though. And that's all a lot of folks who work a job are looking to do, especially in this poor economy. So no, don't look at this as a way to quit your job. But yes, it can be done 100% free (other than your time) and it can build up nicely over time if you keep at it. There are plenty of holes that can be poked through the model, but my whole reason for posting this was to give people something viable to make their first few dollars without any experience or money to invest.

      Thank you Zeus!! This is something I will definitely have to try out. I like the idea that this can be done 100% FREE.
      Earning dollors in South Africa or even the UAE (where I am now) is always good, so even a few $100 per month is well worth any effort

      I may be wrong about this because it's been awhile since I checked it, but I believe there's a limit of 50 posts that can be scheduled through Blogger. So if you have more than 50 articles on a subject... make 2 blogs!

    This is an excellent thread. I am just getting started on line and am looking for ways to make some income. After reading the comments and watching the video my only question is "Could you make it any easier?"

    And for all those out there who are worried about Google pulling your blog, life can be a bit unfair especially when someone else wants to control it for you. Just pick yourself up and start again. Yes you lost what you had but, you still have the knowledge - use it.

    Has anyone done this for several years, making at least six figures a year?

    I'm asking since by trying to be 'clever' you can never build a business. The posts are all based on using PLR content, posting them on free or nearly free blogs. Then using some techniques to get indexed in Google fast.

    Then I see Steven talking about "authority sites". A site without truly unique content and without a decent business plan will never become and stay an authority site. Simply because the whole 'money making technique' is based on building content as fast as possible.

    Don't get me wrong, building a site fast is good. But tricking the search engines and re-using old content is not. In the long run, you'll lose from real businesses!

      Blogger is getting tough on blogs they don't like.

      It might be upsetting to do all this daily and have them deleted.

      Why not a real blog you own and good keyword based content for one hour a day? This is the way to build a long lasting real business. It gives you lots of future options too.

      In my opinion, the longer term money is in building your own hosted blogs with domains that you own. That way you own the content and only you can pull the plug. Plus, as the domains and sites age, they are virtual real estate that you can sell on flippa or whatever site marketplace exists at that time.

      The blogger tip is a good way to get started - I think Zeus' main point was to get people to take action, so if you take away the obstacles of paying for a domain and hosting and just getting in the habit of putting up the articles, then it makes the transition to the next step easier.

      I have some blogs that received two months worth of posts in 2007 and they are still crawled weekly by Googlebot, so if I put any links on them, they'll get cached within a week - that's the kind of indexing and linking power you can build over time.

      Domains are cheap. Hosting is cheap. Google has free keyword research tools. The only thing stopping you is you.

        I totally agree... but listen, if people want to do the Blogger thing, so be it. No harm, no foul. But if anyone is on the fence and has just a little bit of cash that can be used to setup their own sites, it's worth it.

        What's weird is I was just searching through some offers and found this blog network that presumably sold for around $1,500 ::
        http://www.warriorforum.com/complete...logs-sale.html

        If you build 70 blogger hosted blogs, what happens if you want to cash out? I guess you could sell the username/passwords and the e-mail address account that's connected to the blogs... but wow, that just seems a lot like building a sand castle 20 feet from the ocean with high tide approaching.

        But yeah, people who are dead broke and totally desperate to try something might as well go the Blogger route, it's better than nothing. It looks like there are a lot of really broke people who this thread is helping, and that's a good thing.

    What are the limits on my Blogger account?



    We try to give you a lot of room to play here on Blogger, so you'll see that a lot of the important "limits" here aren't really very limiting. But just in case you were wondering, here is some information about about what a single Blogger account will hold.
    Number of Blogs: You can have as many blogs as you like on one account.
    Number of Posts: There is no limit on the number of posts you can have on one blog. They will all be saved on your account (unless you manually delete them) regardless of whether you are publishing archives or not.
    Size of Posts: Individual posts do not have a specific size limit, but very large posts may run you up against the page size limit. (See the next item.)
    Size of Pages: Individual pages (the main page of your blog, or your archive pages) are limited to 1 MB in size. This will allow for a few hundred pages of text, but it may be a problem if you are listing hundreds of posts on the front page of your blog. If you hit this limit, you will see an error message saying "006 Please contact Blogger Support." You can get around this error by lowering the number of posts on your main page, which will have the added benefit of making your page load faster as well.
    Number of Comments: A post can have any number of comments. As with archived posts, if you choose to hide comments on your blog, all pre-existing comments will remain saved on your account.
    Number of Pictures: Up to 1 GB of total storage, shared with Picasa Web
    Size of Pictures: If you are posting pictures through Blogger Mobile there is a limit of 250K per picture.
    Team Members: There is a limit of 100 members per blog.
    Number of Labels: Up to 2000 unique labels per blog and 20 per post.
    Blog Description: Limited to 500 characters, with no HTML. Adding additional characters or HTML may cause it to revert to a previous setting.
    "About Me" Profile Information: Maximum of 1,200 characters.
    Profile Interests and Favorites: Maximum of 2,000 characters in each field




    for those that are worried about content read this from blogger Content Policy

    I have been doing what zeus has spelled out here for some time now and not once have i ever had a problem. i have a crazy amount of blogs at blogger all of them have adsense and some have amazon.

      So look the short and skinny of it is this Quit making excuses and get off your leather Butt and do it.
      nothing worse than a kill joy


      This is the important part:

      Spam: Spam takes several forms in Blogger, all of which can result in deletion of your account or blog. Some examples include creating blogs designed to drive traffic to your site or to move it up in search listings and posting comments on other people's blogs just to promote your site or product.

    Hi John,

    Congratulations and thank you for such a nice and useful post.

    Wow, even after mentioning this is not a huge money-making venture and not to get caught-up in the details, so many people cannot seem to get past their fears and just do it.

    Really who cares if Blogger removes your blog? The person who made their main site on Blogger and lost it made a mistake. Think of sites such as blogger, squidoo, hub pages, etc as throw-aways.

    Make your blogs quick, don't spend too much time on them. Use the power of back-linking to your other properties.

    The main idea is quit over analyzing and do something. Really John lays out the simplest plan I think I know of. If you can't do this, what really can you do?

    Here is a very simple 2 hours/day plan:

    Pop-out 5 of these a day for 20 days. Then go back and add your adsense and link wheels for the next 10 days. In one month you will have 100 blogs ready to make money. After that move on to something more challenging or keep at it - either way you've done something that should give some accomplishment and give you some gas money.

    Justin, your #'s are flawed. These blogs will be making money month after month, not just one time. I have simple sites that I created 2 years ago that used to make me $100/month, now down to $30-$40 per month (these are not on blogger, but still should work the same) . After a while you start to lose ranking bu not updating or other people simply making better sites that beat you out.

    But using your example $3/month/site is for the first month
    Then repeat, build 333 more site and now you make $2000 on month 2
    Repeat and now you make $3000 month 3
    See where this is going? After a year you make $12,000 per month.

    While that looks good on paper, numbers like that NEVER work, traffic starts to dwindle. Some sites simply never get enough traffic, etc. But you will average a good number.

    If you're really that worried over losing some of these free blogs, then invest a tiny amount of money and do it on your own properties. Go get .info domains for under a buck each, set up unlimited hosting for about $10/month, and do this exact same process using a WP installation on your own domain. You're looking at a layout of less than $40 each month for a site a day. WP has many plug-ins to do exactly what Blogger does in terms of drip feeding content.

    So pay about $35-$40 per month and set it up this way. Consider the cost as a kind of insurance policy. You probably spend more each month on coffee.

    But really, if you take the suggestions I and others have made here in this thread, your risks are minimal that Blogger will take anything down. Use a custom (and free) Blogger template each time and don't start posting links to your money sites or Adsense ads or anything like that until the blog has aged awhile. I've not ever had a problem when I follow this plan. Not once. So take it or leave it.

      John,

      I was outlining a plan to use your suggestions with a few twists of my own (I always have to add something...lol) and I was calculating domain costs. I can't believe I didn't think of using a cheap .info domain! I wouldn't use .info for my real money sites but they'd be perfect for this.

      Glad I came back to this thread now

    I'd like to also add, that if you run out of PLR content for a particular blog, you can syndicate articles from article directories. Just be sure you keep the bio box intact. You can change up the content by adding an introductory paragraph before you post the article, such as, I really like this article I think the author did a good job of pointing out X, Y, and Z, etc...

    If you use ezinearticles for content keep in mind you're not allowed to change the title of the article. Also they have limitations on how many articles you can reprint:
    "you may not reprint more than 250 articles per year (10 sites x 25 articles reprinted per domain)."

    If you use 25 articles over 10 of these blogs that's almost a month's worth of free content for 10 blogs. You can use other article directories just be sure to check out their terms of service.

    Lastly, don't forget you can use some YouTube videos for content too. Just post a video and make comments about the video using related keywords. This is also a free and easy way to get content.

    Along those same lines, if you want to put a little bit of extra effort into it, turn your PLR articles into Video Articles (Don't do this with other people's articles it's against TOS only your PLR or your own written articles) and submit them to YouTube. You'll get some free traffic and backlinks by putting your URL in your video description from YouTube by doing this.

      From all i know some of our affiliates (for another program, this one is new) utilize exactly that.

      If you don't mind me asking. If your suggestion is followed 100% (1 hour a day) what do you estimate traffic can be
      - in 3 months
      - 6 months
      - 1 year

      ..if keywords research is done properly and on-page SEO is considered?
      It really depends heavily on your keyword choices if you're talking about search engine traffic. I would definitely do some for every niche you put up a blog about so you're targeting the best phrases (search volume and low competition). Just alter the PLR you use to include the best phrases.

      No way to estimate traffic without knowing keywords and search volumes and competition analysis.

      Please note: these are only extra steps I would take if my goal was to spend a lot of time on this to build into a bigger income stream. For what I focused on in the video, it's too much work per blog. Just keep it simple and fast, as shown.

      if one doesn't care about Adsense but wants to market their own product (with their own spinned content) does Blogger let you include URLs'?
      Yes. but be careful. Don't put any links on your blogs for a few weeks. It'll help you avoid scrutiny and spam take-downs. The percentages drop way down when you wait and go back later to monetize or put in links to your money sites.

      Yes, I figured it would happen because I made this thread and referenced it. No biggy. And that's kind of the point! So you lose a blog now and then. What are you out? Maybe a couple hours of your time setting it up. Plenty more where that came from. PLR is basically inexhaustible.

    I am doing this for my PLR...Many thanks for the kick in the backside!

    I use PingMyBlog.com to get the blogs known and indexed, not associated with them in anyway, just found them very easy to use.

    Hope this helps.

      Yes, that's my advice. You'll be under the most scrutiny early on, so you want to show any prying eyes that it's just a blog about whatever. You're not trying to get links or make money. I usually wait at least 3 weeks and then go back and add some links or maybe Adsense. And even then, sometimes you'll get flagged and lose a blog. Don't let that bother you. Keep adding and don't look back. Seriously, if you just did one of these a day for a couple of months, you'd have a lot of blogs out there aging and some traffic starting to build up. Just don't get too greedy right away and you should be fine. Use them to build up some Adsense or Amazon or other sources of income. You can also use them to point links to your "money" sites for higher rankings. If you treat this as a business asset and not a "get rich quick" scheme, you'll be fine.

        As far as the navbar is concerned, google hints that it is a good thing to leave it on your blog. But, it looks like it is better to remove it just so it is not so easy for someone to come along and click the magic little button "report abuse".

      thx John in all seriousness. I just started with internet marketing and I poured all my time into 2 websites I have up and running. Yet recently I thought how beneficial it would be to have multiple websites/blogs on many different topics! I was focusing so much on the 2 niche's I was in, in getting those 2 sites/blogs ranked and hitting my head against the wall. You simple idea and video shook me loose again thanks so much! I do feel now that you have to spread yourself out rather then focus on one topic..because that one topic with drive you into a huge rut sometimes!

      be good!

        When you go back and setup your social bookmarking etc...do you go heavy on each blog you make?? Just thinking about that makes my head hurt your thoughts? Do you use speific web 2.0 sites only? What are your thoughts on growing traffic to each of your blogs, as in the best way having so many blogs out and about?

    just a heads up for those trying this i have set up 42 blogs using this model. all of them are working great. i thought i would let you know that out of all my niches and topics that the divorce niche is by far my highest performer! 300 unique hits to the blog the day i set it up. also when socially bookmarking your site do one at a time. when i first set it up i mark it with stumbleupon then i wait a few days and mark it with Digg ect. anyway i know its taboo to disclose a profitable niche but in this case i dont feel there is any harm in it.
    when setting up your blogs be sure to attach analytics to it and track your high preformers. that way you can cultivate them and not waste time on the lame ducks.
    like i said i have 42 of them set up with more added daily. out of the 42 i have 12 that i consider good performers and between those 12 im averaging 8 to 10 dollars a day in adsense and amazon.
    also if you find a profitable niche thats performing well dont be afraid to create more then one blog on the subject. as i stated the divorce niche is blowing the others out of the water and i plan on adding five more in that same niche.
    for those of you using adsense with blogger dont waste your time with the image ads they have a poor click thru rate also be sure and set up the ads to appear between posts not on the side.
    just saying this blooging idea works and pays. not a lot but if you work it you can have an semi auto-pilot rev stream.....

    Zeus, that's an absolutely brilliant, quick and easy-to-follow tutorial.

    That vid goes straight on blog for newbies, some oldies will learn from it too.

    I wonder how would you drip feed with wordpress? I'm thinking of setting up an autoresponder to do that, but perhaps there are other better ways or is it not possible?

    Edit: Duh, I found how to do that with wordpress like 10 seconds after I typed that question... a totally homer simpson kodak moment for the archives there Just goes to show what you can discover if you only OPEN your eyes and ears and shut your gub

      With WordPress, you'd simply post your articles to publish at a date in the future. So you could post ten articles, but change the publish dates so that they all go "live" a day or two apart. If you need help with this, just let me know!

    You guys are rocking this simple little method! I'm getting PM's out the wazoo from people doing it who aren't posting here, too! I dig it. This stuff does not have to be complicated or time consuming unless you make it that way.

    Go for numbers with this model. Don't get hung up on dotting all the i's and crossing the t's. Just set one up a day. Use free PLR. At most, change the titles for each post a bit so the URLs are unique (Blogger and WP put the post title in the URL). Then maybe add a sentence or two at the beginning to make them a bit more unique. But that's not even necessary, really. I say go for speed and more blogs. I think that wins in the long run.

    Seriously, shoot for 350 blogs in one year. That's a little less than one per day. Once you get this down, that's like an hour a day. Get on a schedule to go back to each one after it's been published for a minimum of 3 weeks and put up some Adsense or Amazon (they have a blogger widget plug-in now), or just some links back to your sites that make you money so they rise in the rankings.

    Heck, you could even make money with these blogs by selling links on them to other marketers! Let that possibility swim around in your brain a little. See the potential?

    I 100% agree with Zeus on this. Pick a niche and take action!

    It's way to easy to get lost in information overload. Start moving and move everyday.

    Some of my earlier blogs took 6 months to start consistently paying off with affiliate products, but adsense was faster. 2-3 months.

    i just wanted to say that i personally dont link any of my blogger blogs to any other sites on the web and because of that im comfortable with putting in my amazon links in from the start i add adsense a week or so later. without linking the sites to others on the web I avoid any red flags and blogger doesnt view my blogs as spam at all. there are a few i set up fully with amazon and google from the start and have had no problems but do so at your own risk.

      honestly i think the whole gmail debate is simple paranoia. i have nearly 50 blogs on one account and i have no issues. as long as your not spamming your blogs youll be fine with one gmail account. and honestly i guess this is the way i look at it. if blogger was going to punish you for using adsense and amazon on your blog why would they make it available in such a quick and easy format?
      i think most people that are worried about having their accounts banned are either planning on or doing things above and beyond this concept that violate the blogger TOS.
      the way Zeuss has laid it out in no way shape or form violates the blogger TOS. so imho there must be something else going on with those folks that are having issues with banning.


      side note with adsense and blogger : be sure to activate the adsense for feeds feature!

    as far as picking a niche i wanted to add that i have taken the shotgun approach to this. you can find thousands of PLR pack and they are broken up into folders based on subject right now at last cound i had well over 800 folders. what I do is each folder is a blog i create. the best part is i set the blogs up and i pay my 12 year old son $10 a week to copy and paste the content and schedule them to post. I go back later and add the amazon links to them before they post. just dont over think the process the formula is simple create blog , post content , sociallly bookmark, ping site , repeat!

      It will help, but it's time consuming if you do KW research correctly. You could do that and just put up fewer blogs. In the long run, it will produce good results, no doubt. But I would suggest just naming your blog with the main keyword for that niche if you're not a fast researcher. You do want related words in the domain - like digitalcameracases.blogspot.com - for example. That will help it rank for the term "digital camera cases." But don't spend much time on finding keywords if you aren't already good (and fast) at it.

    I think one gmail acct per blogger blog is overkill. I would suggest one gmail for every 4-5 blogs and you'll be fine. There aren't a lot of people (non-marketers) who would set up more blogs than that at blogger for themselves under one acct, so mimic that general rule. It'll save you some time to put up more blogs.

    1,000 in 9 months??? YOU CAN DO IT! But man, you're gonna need a long vacation after you do all that work, man.

      just a tip for you to speed up the blog building process:

      because your post dating the blogs content only post 10 articles to start with. then set one day a week aside to load content into your blogs. be sure and ping them on this day. (pinging them daily can have an adverse effect)

      what i do is i create 10 to 20 blogs all at once then load the content. its fast and easy and doing it this way breaks up the tasks so its not so boring.

      1000 blogs are do-able just do 10 a day for the next 100 days. easy money

    I know you're recommending doing this with Blogger, but can't it work just as well with Wordpress? I have lots of WP blogs already set up, and could add more content before monetizing them, yes?

    wow, I thought the first blog was easy to set up so are we suppose to ping daily? I mean the sites aren't heard to set up on there. I got the adsense and amazon deal, even though the adsense wont do me any good since they rejected me i am not sure if it was for a payment or what. Any other advise besides amazon and adsense???

      Ok, so i started doing this the other day, got a few blogs done, and submitted a few articles to ezine articles. But as i was expecting Ezine wouldnt let me submit them due to it already being posted. So, i tampered around with each paragraph until it was happy letting me submit it. I did this for about 5-6 blogs, and now a week later i have been informed that my ezine account has been suspended for trying to post duplicated content.

      If i cannot post PLR articles on ezine, where am i supposed to get my traffic from?

        Write unique articles for EZA.

        Use the google keyword tool to find long tail keyword phrases in the niche that receive some (but not a ton) of traffic. Try to get those phrases as the title of your blog post. Note: As your blog's domain builds up authority, you can target higher traffic phrases. Don't try to be too greedy to start.

          Yes, but the whole idea of this post was about numbers, not quality unique content. If recently did a golfing blog, now i know nothing about golf so obviously it was all PLR articles. Now when it comes to making an article on ezine, my two choices are either posting a re-written PLR article (Which i did, but obviously not re-written enough as it caused my account to get suspended) or writing my own article. Now if i were to write my own article about a subject i know nothing about obviously i would come across as a bit of an idiot, and theres no way anyone would want to follow any links i put in the resource box.

          I could research the subject enough to at least bluff my way through an article, but that defeats the idea of this post. I am just skeptical of the idea that you will get clicks from google, when surely you will be so far down in the listings for pretty much any keyword.

    Yeah, I would never recommend using PLR at EZA. I know nothing I posted or mentioned in the video said anything about using PLR for that purpose. You always want to submit unique content there, or at the very least heavily rewritten stuff so it's basically original. Sorry about your luck with that. You get your traffic from search engines. With all the content you're publishing on your blogs, you'll start getting some traffic through various long-tail keyword searches.

    this is great, but Google is known to delete people's blogs, especially if you're an affiliate and ty to sell something. Maybe adsense is the way to go since adsense makes google money, so there might be a higher chance your blogs survive

    Alright without sounding too much of a newbie, well let me ask the noobie question anyway lol when you want to get traffic to your site, exactly what do you do to make that happen? I know ya'll got some good suggestions. I understand search engines but how are we getting the search engines to look at our sites?

    One of the ways you can get the Search Engines to look at your sites is to add a signature to your WF profile, which of course links to your site/blogs/pages etc. Take a look at Zeus66 signature under his post or for that matter mine.

    OK, so let me make sure that I understand this correctly on how to go about doing this properly, and perhaps you can correct me in any areas that I am incorrect on.

    1) Create Blog on blogger.com
    Only make 3-4 blogs per gmail account. This means that you will have to
    have several different gmail accounts in order to be a success with this.
    2) Find 10 or more PLR Articles and Post them on a blog.
    3) Ping first post only of each new blog.
    4) Return to blog and PRE Post the rest of your articles so that you have a
    new post on that blog everyday.
    5) Repeat this blog building process 40-50 times.
    6) After blogs are indexed, then you will return and start to monetize.

    How does this process look? Am I correct on all this? Also, when I monetize I am using AdWords correct? Can I use 1 (one) AdWords account for ALL my Blogger blogs, even though I will have SEVERAL different gmail accounts?

    Thanks!

        As I was saying in an earlier post , if you get free hosting with byethost.com, you do not need your own domain, as you can use some of their domains and your site becomes a sub-domain. This is free of charge and you get a few to choose from.

        As there seems to be no 'juice' received from .blogspot.com, I can not see why this would be 'seo harmful' to do. In fact it could be helpful in a way as you will get your exact keywords in the URL.

    Hmm... I might just be insane. Zeus, I gotta admit, you have me intrigued with the potential for this one. And I'm spending the summer going overboard on work, so what's one more project to juggle?

    1000 blogs this summer? The beginning of April to the end of August gives me 20 weeks. 50 blogs per week, one Gmail account for every 50 blogs... that's about eight per day, give or take a few. And I tend to spend three or four hours every night writing fiction with a partner, so I need an activity just like this to keep me entertained in between posts. This could work out very, very well... or fail horribly. I'm contemplating starting a blog: "The 1,000-Blog Marathon" or something like that.

    ...or maybe I just need to go to bed and wait until I see this post in the stone-cold light of day. Either way, I'll throw it out there.

      If you are afraid of that then you can always spin the articles and change little bit of the content. There you go.... now you can easily put adsense.
      you can even sell any PLR ebook(this will add value to your blog).

      I just re-read the Adsense policies, just to be sure, but there isn't any policy requiring unique content. It can't violate copyright rules but as long as you own the rights to publish the content, you're fine.

      Think about it for a minute. If there was a policy of using only unique content, there wouldn't be as many article directories as there are. Almost all of them have Adsense on them and they are full of non-unique content.

      That's a good question. You can adapt this idea to any free blogging system that allows for easy auto-posting. I believe Tumblr fits that criteria. I'm sure there are many others. If anyone knows of others, post them here to help out those who are interested in this. Speed is important here, so it needs to be blog systems that you can schedule posts for publishing at a later date automatically.

        You can use ping.fm to post the content out to multiple micro-blogs and blogs. One way to do this is to set up one blog to receive the articles and set ping.fm to grab the rss feed of those articles and push them out through all of the blogging and micro-blogging sites that you set up in your dashboards.

      That's gonna vary a lot from blog to blog. The more content you feed it, the more chances you'll get some traffic from searches. You could do some social bookmarks and even set up Twitter accounts for more traffic, but that's a bigger time investment of course. I'd probably spend that time setting up more blogs and not worry about the traffic to any single blog.

          The blogs will often rank eventually. Not usually right out of the gate, but as they age and you add more content, they'll start to rank for less competitive search terms. That's why you want more and more out there working for you.

        Some (newbie) questions:

        Couldn't this be done with a personally owned domain and having WordPress setup for multiple blogs?

        Isn't the only real advantage to Blogger is that it gets indexed faster? If you are going for long term drip income then does it matter if it takes 2 minutes to get indexed or 2 weeks?

        Finally, could you do this same process but instead of using PLR you would skim content off of EZA or other free article directories? From what I have seen (in my limited experience) most articles on EZA aren't being copied to many other sites so you won't have too much duplication to worry about. Of course you would have the authors own links to compete with, but many of them are buried at the bottom of the article. Is there anything in the EZA TOS preventing someone from inserting their adsense/amazon ads right in the middle of the article?

          I've got a project in the works called The Zombie Companion which covers this... along with some interesting twists and turns.

          There are good points and bad points to this approach, the major bad one being that your horde inevitably makes up the overwhelming majority of activity on the site. You're not mixing your blogs up with the hundreds of thousands of blogs already up on a major "Web 2.0" service, where they're a small minority.

          Instead, you're creating what amounts to a blog slum, which can theoretically cause a "bad neighbourhood" determination that may cascade into every domain on the same IP.

          There's a certain concern - which I must stress has no solid evidence to back it up - that doing this can put your AdSense account and all your Google accounts at serious risk, in addition to slaughtering your page rank and SERP positions. This is purely theory.

          We haven't done enough testing on this, but there's a body of research from the autoblogging and backlinking crowd which seems to indicate that the risks of this are significantly higher. I've been looking at ways to diminish or even eliminate that risk.

          And, again, I can't emphasise enough that this is essentially "the boogeyman" and not some real-world danger that we know is out there causing problems. This is just something we're worrying about.

      This is not a viable long-term big money idea. Please remember that. This is for some extra cash every month to pay a bill or two. Some blogs you set up will never get much traffic. Some will do better. That's why this is a numbers game. Don't get caught up caring about how any individual blog performs. Just concentrate on adding more blogs with drip-fed content and get them indexed by Google by ping'ing and maybe adding a social bookmark or two to the homepage. Then move on. Go back a few weeks later and add in the links or Adsense. Work out a schedule. If you just keep going, some of the blogs will start to make you money. It's inevitable. But don't expect to quit a job with this. It's not about that. It's just for people who want a bit more coming in every month without the hassles and expense of domain registration, web hosting, and all the rest. This is simple, fast, and works... but you have to avoid overthinking. Just do what I showed in the video and keep going.

        Thank you for the empty platitude.

        TAKE ACTION, TAKE ACTION TAKE ACTION! Did you come up with that yourself?

        You know some of us have a bit of self-knowledge and understand what we need to do to get the most out of ourselves.

        I have found that if I start the day with something really simple I can warm up my brain. Within half an hour I'm ready to get really stuck in.

        That's just the way it works for me.

    Hey Zeus66,

    thanks a lot for this post, got me movtivated

    I have a question, do you recommend doing this with a wordpress site? Will the site have a harder time getting ranked good because its less favored as opposed to a blogger site?

    And someone was talking about duplicate content. My site phonerumors.net has 100% duplicate content from feeds, and it still ranks 1-4 in google search for "phone rumors" (the position changes a little once in a while).

    Thanks

        You may risk your Blogger blog (I don't know their TOS) but there is nothing in the Adsense TOS prohibiting duplicate content so your statement is wrong.

        Have you seen the article directories? Full of duplicate content and they have Adsense galore (many of them).

        Mostly a load of rubbish. Blogger has zero in its TOS about using duplicate content (defined as content appearing on other sites): Blogger: Content Policy

        Being flagged is not the same as losing a blog or your account. Respond to the flagging by using the form they provide and then it's usually just a matter of a few days and they'll release the hold and you're good to go again.

        This is completely and blatantly untrue. Dupe content has absolutely nothing to do with any of Adsense's TOS.

    Thanks to Zeus66 for putting this up (and also Kyhell for some great insights). Excellent thread.

    I am currently autoblogging away using Carty's fabulous software (See previous posts ) and must say I prefer the security of self hosted Wordpress to the often bizzare attitude of the big G.

    Using byethost.com (free and ad-free hosting) and fantastico, setting this up using WP is as cheap and almost as quick & easy as blogger blogs IMO. Worth the extra bit of fiddling about for the security of knowing that if one of these blogs somehow becomes a cash cow, it can not be taken from you down the road.

      This may sound like a dumb question, but after you apply for adsense..how do you get approved? My blogger blogs dont get that much traffic so Google says i need to get more traffic. How much traffic do you need to get approved? Do you just use your adsense account from a site with enough traffic that got approved already???

      I am going with 3 blogs per email address and I have started 9 blogs thus far. I am taking it a step further and doing a little bit of keyword research so it is easier for my pages to rank.

      My eventual goal is try and squeeze $2-$3 a day out of these blogs, which would give me about $20 a day. Also for those are are worried blogger will delete your blog I think I figured out a workaround. DO NOT LINK OUT for any reason. If you are going to put products up there you should find them in Amazon...

      I will be posting Youtube videos, but unless it is through advertising there will be zero links to any outside webpages.

        Thanks for sharing mainstream!

        I am doing 5 blogs per blogger account. I created an email address with "001" at the end of my first email and "002" as my second and so on. Then I created a list in a spread sheet with all my blogs under each account and when they were created so I know when to go back and monetize them.

        So far I have about 15 blogs in about 3 days period.

        How soon are you going to monetize?

          I am going to wait for the pages to get indexed. As of today they haven't yet, and I submitted to Digg etc and it didn't seem to work. Once the pages get indexed I will be developing a small backlink strategy and then I am going to monetize with Adsense and Amazon.

          The problem I am having is I am keep flip flopping in my head whether I want to just go out an buy some .info domains and run this on wordpress. And its not because I'm afraid Google will pull my stuff, I am worried that it won't rank as well in the SE's.

          Just a little update on my progress thus far.

          I've put up 16 different blogs since 3/29 on 8 different gmail accounts. I'm trying to pick generic gmail accounts so that I can eventually put 20-50 blogs under each account.

          I created a spreadsheet with spaces for 1000 blogs. I'm going LIMITED keyword research. i

          I did add adsense to my oldest blogs today and submitted my RSS feed through my RSS bot software. I'm only going to add adsense when they are at least 3 days old and maybe not even that soon on some of them.

          After about 2-3 weeks I might go in on some of the older blogs and add some Amazon links but right now I'm just concentrating on my goal of 1000 blogs.

          One thing to make sure you do is to put google analytics tracking in. That way once you get all your blogs up and running you can see which ones are getting some traffic and you can try to boost those a little bit.

          Let's see 16 down and only 984 more to go :0)

            So it just dawned on me that if you could just garner $.25 from those blogs a day you would make $250 daily. A freaking QUARTER is all you need to make, which for most smaller niches is only 1 click a day per site.

        Why is it bad to have outbound links?

        I already happened to have an older blogger blog (1 month) which has one outbound affiliate link on every post.

        Is that bad? Could that 1 blog pose a danger to the other ones I've created?

          Seems to me that the blogs get termed if Google feels you are using the site to drive traffic to an outside source. So I eliminated this from my game plan. I am sure you could probably get away with it, but the bottom line is I do not want to look like spam. If you look like spam your done, or so it seems.

      Yeah I wrote my own articles as well. I am sure it would be much faster if I just used other content, but I am using this as an exercise in fine tuning my writing and story telling skills (I want to work in entertainment, and IM is just a means to an end for me).

      It takes a little more time of course, but I am benefiting from the work both personally and professionally.

    I'm posting 50 blogs per email address. Absolutely no links anywhere else, except for the Amazon links if I decide to monetize that way. I have a spreadsheet to track my blog names, URLs, dates published, Gmail accounts, and whether or not they are monetized yet. I'll go back and monetize in three weeks. Also, I've been removing the navbar from the top of all the blogs so competitors don't flag me from pettiness.

    I have 40 completed so far. 4% of the way there.

    Hey guys,

    would be great if someone could help me with these questions before I continue making blogs.

    Would you recommend me using a self hosted wordpress blog instead of blogger? I know how to use the SEO plugins and all that stuff but I'm not sure if the sites would benefit more from using Blogger.

    If I use blogger, should I use the .blogspot domain or my own. I'm curious because if you google "make money online" you see that the #1 site is Make Money Online , so not sure if that site is benefitting from the google domain.

    And lastly, if I use my own domain with blogger can I just sign up with "kljdfslkd.blogspot.com" as I'll be using my own domain later on?

    Thanks for the help

    Thanks Zeus, great video. I have two questions. 1. When to expect profit from following your system? and 2. What is the average income from one blog per day?

    Hi john,
    thanks for the post. I have one adsense ac. I use it with my 2 blogger account. I think adsense can be used with multiple gmail account what do you think.

      What do you think to use free domain like co.cc ?

    I tried this. Three blogs and three days later I woke up to see that my whole Google account had been suspended. Might be coincidence. Might not be. Just a word of warning.

      Hmm... Were there any outbound links on the blogs, or mentions of affiliate links, etc?

        Why are links to a website for example so bad as I see many blogs with external links?

        Do you have to constantly add content to the blogs indefinately. I mean if you set 50 articles over 50 days what happens to the blogs after that? do you then have to upload another 50 days worth so each blog will "always" have content added whilst they are still live!?

        How is an adsense account created, and is there an issue if you have many blogs with many different gmail accounts?

        Thanks if anyone can answer my questions.

      That is definitely one way of looking at it. However, I have taken these steps even further by doing keyword research. This way it is easier to rank for my keywords. My goal is to make a solid $2-$3 a day from these blogs.

      I am up to 12, but 9 of them are small niches while the others are quite large. We'll see what happens in May!

          Any idea how to fix this? I've change the cname to google's server but maybe I need to change the name servers too... Anyone know?


          And here's a tip for everyone:

          Go to Layout -> Edit HTML, then find the line
          Code:
          <b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>
          Under that line add your meta tags formated like this:
          Code:
          <meta content='DESCRIPTION HERE' name='description'/>
          <meta content='KEYWORDS HERE' name='keywords'/>
          So it will look like this:
          Code:
          <b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>
          <meta content='DESCRIPTION HERE' name='description'/>
          <meta content='KEYWORDS HERE' name='keywords'/>
          I also like to add these tags as they make sure that search engines index your site and only use the description you entered and not a description from your sites content:

          Code:
          <meta content='index,follow' name='robots'/>
          <meta content='noodp,noydir' name='robots'/>
          Oh and I've noticed that blogs using domains get indexed faster so you might want to consider using a domain. Plus something to keep in mind... if your dont use a custom domain and your site gets suspended then you loose the PR you had on that domain as well. If you use your own then you'll still have the PR on your domain at least.

      Mainstreet-I've got 37 blogs up and running so far with 0 traffic, although I'm not surprised at that. Are you submitting your sites or doing any type of promotion or just merely setting up the sites?

        I seem to be getting about 3 or 4 daily visits. I set up analytics and it is showing that blogger.com is referring my blogs. Not sure how that all pieces together quite yet.

        I only have 12 blogs or so, and nine have completely original content. I did keyword research for the 9 and the last 3 are very general and use the free PLR content. I will update everyone as to my progress reading those.

        I am wondering what is going to happen once I monetize with adsense, as I only have one account but I have three blogger accounts. I hope this doesn't throw up a red flag -- but only time will tell.

        Still haven't been indexed and I've tried pinging, submitting to digg and mixx, as well as already starting my backlinking strategy. Love to hear what other people are doing.

            I'm not sure how to make this any clearer... this is not a model to follow to make that kind of money. Target a monthly bill or a car payment. Beyond that and I think you're putting too much hope in this.

              I agree. My goal is to simply make $2-$3 a blog. Having 9 blogs targeted in certain niches I am looking at roughly $18 a day from all nine if I have done my research correctly.

              $18 a day x 30 days is $540 which is more than enough to help me cover a couple of bills and maybe even a Vegas vacation later this year! I am doing this in tangent with my main money making website.

              I am certainly not going become a millionaire from these efforts, but I am new to IM so I am getting juiced into this world by using a free blogger account. I would rather make my seo mistakes doing this, and then apply what I learn to my "hosted" account.

              Honestly, its all a numbers game, so if you want to quit your job with this method you are going to need to make A LOT of blogs.

              So long as I can finally kick-start my online career I am happy with that much...for now, I am not expecting the Earth but $100 will allow me to get a couple of domains with enough to hire writers or maybe a couple of years of unlimited hosting on hostgator...it all helps

    I set up a wordpress blog and have a few more in the making that I am more interested in using it for backlinks than anything else at this moment.

    I understand what backlinks are but what confuses me is seeing talk of a blog being considered spam in ways when it's used to primarily get links to another site but I took spam as getting hit with stuff you are not interested in or did not sign up for. But how does that apply to a website that you can see what's there and if you don't like it,leave? Or does that "spam guilty" rule only apply to free sites and not self hosted ones

      Honestly I feel everyone is coming up with a billion and a half reasons why this shouldn't or can't work. If one does proper KW research and does the proper SEO these pages have just as much chance of making cash from adsense and/or amazon as any other page.

      If you desperately need traffic to your blogs before they rank throw up some ads on Project Wonderful. But by taking Zeus' idea here and further implementing some KW research I am finding niche's to create blogs for that I believe will rank well.

      Even if I made a combined $10 a day from my blogs, thats $300 a month and more than enough to cover my car payment!

        This is exactly right. Do you know what prevents most people from ever earning a substantial amount of money online? It's not lack of ideas. It's not lack of knowledge. It's not lack of desire. It's failure to take action.

        Stop finding flaws in this (and other things you come across), and start trying some of these ideas out. And I mean REALLY try them out. Don't half-ass it. Don't start and then move on to something else. Dig in and really follow all the way through.

        Are you possibly going to lose some of your blogs? Yes. So what? Keep going. Don't try to make money from them right off the bat. Go back to ones you set up a month later and start working on putting up ads or backlinks to your money sites, etc. Take a longer view of this.

        And above all - forget making this a full-time business. This is a way to make a car payment or pay one of your bigger monthly bills. It's not a job quitting scheme.

        Run with it! Stop poking holes in it. Even if you fail at it, you'll learn some good things to use in your next attempt at something. I've been a full-time Internet Marketer since 1997. Guess what? I've failed a BUNCH of times. Get used to your fair share. Just resolve to keep going until you hit on a success, then build on it.

    Hmm, I've revised my plans. I was going to do 1000 blogs in 100 days, but I realized that I should probably test first. So I'm going to make 100 blogs (I'm already halfway there), then monetize with Adsense and wait a bit to see what happens. (I'll report back here if I have success.)

    In the meantime, I might do similar blogs with unique content to see how the two stack up.

    After 7 days I have 40 blogs up and running. Analytics installed on all of them. 0 to 1 visitors to each. Monetization only added to the 3 oldest blogs.

    I'm considering building 50 at time, building backlinks by spinning the articles and posting them on ezine articles and a few other methods, adding some monetization, and then moving on to another 50, lather, rise and repeat.

    My concern is that some of my blogs only have 10 articles on them. If I wait for 3 weeks, add monetization, I'm still not going to be getting any traffic because I don't have fresh content to draw the search engines in.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on that?

      My concern is that some of my blogs only have 10 articles on them. If I wait for 3 weeks, add monetization, I'm still not going to be getting any traffic because I don't have fresh content to draw the search engines in.

      Does anyone have any thoughts on that?
      For my sites I have staggered the release dates of my posts. Most of my blogs are posting 3 days a week - Mon, Wed, Fri. I have two others that are releasing content on Tue & Thur.

        That's a great idea and I think I will start doing the same thing. That will spread my content out a bit. I also bought an autoblogging software over at the WF that I think will also help with this problem.

          So if I understand that software correctly it extracts news and content from RSS feeds and then compiles them into a post, which has already been scheduled by you?

          Alternately, I feel that because I'm doing some KW research and finding some real small niches I believe after the first month I will be going to a once a week posting schedule. The next month I will be moving to a twice a month posting schedule.

    I have been complaining about not making money online and this thread just came at the right time. Having gone through it, i got a fresh motivation to have something done. Between yesterday and now, i have been able to work on 5 blogs. I added them on Google Webmasters, and ping each and every one of them with Pingler (a pinging service website). So I will like to know if i am doing the right thing. Responses will be appreciated.

    This looks amazing, but am I missing something?
    When I search for "PLR articles" I only find sites where I have to pay or where I have to join or just crazy horrible advert blocking sites.
    Any tips?

      Typically you have to (A) pay for them upfront, (B) pay for them on a subscription basis or, (C) get them as a bonus for buying a product or joining an email list. You can find some oldie moldy PLR articles around in some free sites though.

      Search for "Free PLR Articles" So what if you have to "join" to get 'em? If you want to do this, you have to give a little here and there.

      One site I signed up with puts out about 200 new PLR Articles every month!

    UPDATE: The blog I mentioned in the OP here is now back. If you just respond to the flagging in a timely manner, they almost always reinstate your blog. So don't get too upset if you do find some of your blogs getting flagged. Remain calm and take the steps they tell you to take and you'll be good to go again within a few days.
