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.

I'm curious...we're you updating these blogs still, or had they been sitting idle a while?

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

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!

Just my 2c.

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.

for those of you with questions about some of the things you can do with blogger this was ripped from the pages of blogger its self

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.

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.

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.

To Your Success !!

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.

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 know I'm thinking ahead to future potential, and this is

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.

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.

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.

Ok, thanks for everyone for overlooking my last post....Zeus, you said nothing about 'hit publish' first...but guess who did that instead of "Following Orders!". sheesh.

Got it, doing it and thank you again.

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.

Hi All,

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, 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.

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.

You provided some great info on ways to get started. Thanks for taking the time to share.

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".

John the Zeus Man

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!

Oh John..I did have one question for ya!

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

Cheers

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!

Thanks Lisa, I found how to do that just seconds after I posted, never occurred to me to try this before as in the past, blogging and me were worlds apart, I also stumbled on other cool features I never new wordpress offered and now I'm seeing lotsa fresh possibilities to add to what Zeus has shared here... absolutely no excuses not to be using this stuff.

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.

I can wrap my head around almost all of this but get lost when you all start talking about the gmail address thing.

Are you saying that for each blog I should set up a different gmail address? I'm going to start this TONIGHT. Can't wait.

I'm shooting for 1,000 blogs by 12/31/10.....

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!

Another quick question...just because I've had KEYWORD RESEARCH drilled into my head....at this point you are saying don't worry about keyword research....just get a related name and go for it....do I understand that correctly?
