Auto Blog System X - Anyone using it?

92 replies
I've had an email from a source with regard to Rob Benwell using "Auto Blog System X" with claims it will make thousands of dollars within days.

Has anyone bought this product or can tell me more?

I trust Rob, haven't bought any of his products but I believe he is a credible marketer. it would be good to know if it's an okay product.

Kind regards

Brian

  • I'm curious about it as well. I made a post about 2 weeks ago about Rob Benwell's other product the blogging to the bank premium blog already made and done for you and I and others haven't seen a thing happen yet. I don't know what to make of this Auto Blog System X...

    Okay, it looks like I didn't do due dilligence. Rob's name has been mooted for being a young guy making a lot of money blogging, but I hadn't heard about the issues with BTTB Premium blogs.

    I will wait to see what others have to say.

    Thank you.

    I purchased it so that I could review it. The main ebook is 60 pages long, approx 56 pages of real content which is a good amount IMO.

    The techniques are very feasible. It requires a domain and hosting, and utilizes Wordpress.

    He does recommend a few paid programs- one in particular that makes the process much easier. But it is not technically required.

    The method is borderline spammy IMO, but anyone buying a product about AUTO blogging should expect that.

    I will call BS on his scarcity limits though. He says he sold 15,000+ units of his previous product... he's publically advertising over $20k cash prizes to affiliates on this launch, and says on the sales page he's only gonna sell 250 units @ $37? I don't think so.

    Hey I'm a scarcity marketer too, but that's overkill IMO.

    Overall, I would say it's a good value at the price. If you're looking to get into auto-blogging, it's a good guide.

      I did too and honestly wish I hadn't.

      Yes, the techniques ARE feasible but that's because they've been proven to work and promoted successfully by other marketers for ages now. There is nothing new or original in this. As for requiring a domain and hosting and using Wordpress - that's pretty elementary.

      I totally agree and I would say it's totally spammy and get this - I encountered 4 - 4!!! - upsells! The first for $297, the second for $77, the 3rd for $97 and I didn't even bother checking the price of the fourth. I HATE this kind of marketing.

      Here, I totally disagree. I am sorry I purchased this but I was sucked in by the the combined claim of quick money, limited to 250 (got to be an outright lie) and the "guarantee" that if you don't make $1000 in 1 week he'll pay you $100 as well as a full refund.

      Look, your mileage may vary and it may be that I'm just in a crap mood because I'm at home sick with a virus today. You might do brilliantly with this product, but I honestly I'm very disappointed.

      If you want real value on Autoblogging look Carty's stuff HERE. Carty gives you a FREE guide and his software (which you do have to purchase) works. If you want something original and that works look at Gene Pimentel's Easy Domain Cash (which is getting results for me and where I'm currently focusing my efforts) or JDawk's Cynic Tube (I'm convinced this works and I'm starting it today) or anything by Sean Donahoe (who offers real, usable information, sometimes for free! The man is a walking goldmine of success strategies).

      Please note: I get nothing out of talking up these other products and people.

      Mods, I apologize if I've done the wrong thing here and please let me know if I've stepped out of line but I feel very strongly about this consistent offering of repackaged material sucking people in (like me! Ha!) through slick marketing. Give me honesty and integrity like those people mentioned above (and I'm sure there's more I could list - if you know of any please let others know) anyday.

      I need to lay down. The virus is really taking effect and I'm getting the shivers.

      Take care.

        But IF (and that is a HUGE if!) your autoblogs were making the kind of money that guy says he is making then who the hell cares if they tank in a couple months! Is there something unique about that guys approach to autoblogging that no one else is doing - something that is able to generate that much money?

          I think the answer is obvious. You can't compare some auto blog to Google news or Yahoo news. Google and Yahoo have "HUGE!!" amounts of unique content in other sections of their sites. Besides Yahoo and Google do it because they CAN and you CAN'T... simple as that.

          The other ones have a nice brand going for them and lots of traffic that doesn't depend on Google or Yahoo, so therefor Google gives them love.

          Some auto content site that you create from home will NEVER get the same treatment. PERIOD

            I don't think that Metacritic or Rotten Tomatoes or the hundreds of video game review aggregation sites were created in a corporate environment. Lots of them started as small projects by an individual person... likely in their home.

            You're right to say that Google and Yahoo! may not take too kindly to your auto blog or aggregator site, but that doesn't mean they all suck or the all don't work.

            That kind of blanket logic doesn't hold water because you're speaking in absolute terms - all auto blogs suck and will eventually see their traffic dry up on a long enough timeline.

            Although that might be true of some, it isn't true of all.

              Ok, some of those sites are aged and grandfathered in by Google. Just like articles directories, some are grandfathered in and get great treatment from Google, there is only a handful of those. Just imagine if we all started an article directory lol Try to start one now, see how that goes for you

              There is still a way to publish auto content which is a little trick, but this is the ONLY way. First you build an authority site with great unique content and gain Google's trust. Then and ONLY then you can think of adding a section to your site with some automatic content added daily, while still adding unique content of course. That's the only way that works still but is not guaranteed either. I have seen sites stripped from page rank as soon as they start adding auto content.

              It's NOT a good business model. In fact it won't even make you substantial money before it gets removed from Google's index or penalized. The good old days when that worked are OVER.

              Seriously, build a good site that you are proud of and then maybe some time down the road you can add some auto content, but it needs to be done right and you need to keep it quiet if you do.

              Some script that you buy from WSO section or from some marketer is not going to cut it. Something like that requires custom programming and NDA signed

                    From the linked article above:
                    To create $1,000 a month income using blogs earning $1 a day (the threshold, apparently) I will need to have 143 blogs costing $1428.57 at $9.99 per cheap .com domain name. Is it possible to even set up 143 blogs in seven days?
                    Apart from confirming my stupid (5%) gullibility - has anybody any idea what I have miss read?
                    I can setup about 5 an hour if I am on a roll, but that does not include the SEO work or the linking.

                      Hi Warriors,

                      I must confess - I feel for the bait as well. But at least I got it for the $27 special when leaving the site.

                      My justification was that while I doubted to make as much as the system claims, I figured if I could even make 1/10th of that I would be happy.

                      Unfortunately, if I remember correctly you are encouraged to buy dedicated hosting for all of your blogs to mask the search engines from knowing that all of the blogs are from the same account. Additionally, the auto-blogging syndication service that he advises costs a bit of cash as well. It sounds like an interesting experiment, but one that is going to generate more expenses than revenue until you can produce enough $1 / day blogs to pay off the overhead.

                      While the overhead & time commitment have held me from actually diving in to this system I still feel as a new blogger that I got a few nuggets out of his course - namely the fact that I was unaware that you could run multiple blogs from a single integrated admin panel which is cool.

                      I thought there was some decent info, but if I could go back and decide all over again I think I would look into some of the more credible products mentioned in this thread instead.

                      Additionally, yeah - a bunch of upsells as soon as you buy the course... Wow...

                      This has been an interesting thread - it sure has uncovered some pretty serious credibility concerns as well.

                      Best wishes in your blogging & and mine (which I will likely continue to do the old fashioned way - writing my own content and posting it oftenly).

                      Don't depend on auto blog if you want to make money.

                      It's a scam.

                      I did it for 6 months last year, I think I wasted 6 months of life, thats much more expensive than any luxury car like BMW or Benz Audi....because I was wasting my life!

                      I spent $400 on building websites, most on domain names.

                      I created about 100 auto blogs.

                      I put adsense and clickbank ads on all blogs.

                      In 6 months period I made:

                      $350 from adsense, $70 from clickbank.(rough number, I can't recall exact number)

                      I actually break even.

                      If all my blogs can last for next 6 months I would make money, but...I lost:

                      I lost my adsense account.

                      Most of my domain names banned by google.

                      Most of my content banned by google.

                      I lost my traffic.

                      And most importantly, I lost 6 months of my life.


                      Its takes lot of time to create and MAINTAIN auto-blogs, believe me, it doesn't worth at all.

                      And the life of auto-blogs are short, you don't even have time to make them better.

                      And you don't even have time to PROMOTE AUTO-BLOGS.

                      It's impossible to promote 100 blogs! Even you have only one blog, you still need lot of time to make it popular.

                      It's blog man, if your blog has nothing to attract people's eye balls, how could you expect the big G google search engine machine to bring CASH COW(the visitors) to your blogs? Don't be silly!


                      And even you get 1000 visitors to your auto-blog, do they convert well? I personally did adsense arbitrage and auto-blogs using different adsense accounts.(and of course I lost both)

                      I test the CTR of 2 methods, and the adsense arbitrage gives me 15-30% of CTR, and I only got average 0.1-0.3% of CTR from auto-blogs.

                      Numbers don't lie, you can see that the visitors from auto-blogs are much much less targeted from adsense arbitrage. Its about 1/100 value. Which means if you want to make same amount of money, you might need to bring 1000 times of visitors if you use auto-blogs.

                      Is that easy?

                      Do you think it's easy to get visitors from auto-blogs? When content updated daily automatically, and then google spider will visit your blogs and index more pages, and then you get more visitors?

                      It's a theory only, in fact, google will ban your most pages, and the value of your content will be near to zero.

                      It's just like conversion rate of your own products, if the conversion rate is only 0.5%, and then you will need 10 times of visitors to make same amount of sales as a products has 5% conversion rate.

                      If you have trash websites like autoblogs(bring you auto-content from article dirs or some other's blogs....and at same time you need to avoid those authority websites which have real good content). You might need to create 1000 of them to make some money.

                      But the problem is they wont last, they dont even last for 6 months. Google will ban your blogs.

                      Before you make money, you got banned, and your adsens got banned.

                      Who win?

                      I guess only those people teach you do that.

                        I hate to tell you but you are not just wrong, but very wrong and the main reason I can say this is I am living proof that you can make serious money with this IF you do it the right way.

                        I have numerous members in my program right now making serious money. You don't have to believe me, all you have to do is ask them. This is not meant to be a plug for my system, but a plug for auto blogging as a whole.

                        Why?

                        Because the main limitation people have with this is knowledge and a complete understanding of how to do it right. I am not calling you a dummy, I am just saying that you didn't have someone point you in the right direction.

                        I don't try to dodge Google and I am not a "Guru". I am a regular guy who started with Blog and Ping with Auto Blogs and Blogger.com and when that Gravy Train went away I modified my approach and learned that the best way to make money with auto blogging and Google, is to give Google what it wants and when you do that, you will undoubtedly succeed.

                        The other main mistakes that people have is the perception that you can quickly create something and succeed these days. You have to create blogs that have value added content. All this means is to simply provide content in a way that gives users a resource that they can use for the automated content you are providing. Newspapers and magazine websites do this all the time by reposting news and entertainment aritcles. It is the same concept but on a broader level. You just have to be smart about it and have a solid background in what Google will and won't accept. I have found this to not be that hard.

                        There are many avenues you can take to make money online. To think you can just jump into any of them and succeed is not a good idea. To find valuable resources which will teach you how to do this and help you by answering questions is tough these days as well as it is hard to weed out the quality programs from the riff raff. I am not here to say I have the perfect answers, but I do have solutions to these problems that others may not have presented to you previously.

                        Everyone's opinion is based solely on their personal experience and I wish you had a better one. I can only say that I wish you the best in your future endeavors.

          At first I thought you must have made a typo when you included Rotten Tomatoes, but as I thought about, I realized what you were trying to say.

          I'm a fan and user of Rotten Tomatoes - I always check there before renting a movie.

          But thinking about it made the difference clear to me: a site like RT has spent a great deal of money on site design, graphics, and backend CMS. The site is carefully crafted to pull together the 'right' information in the 'right' places, giving you a "meta-site", something more than the sum of it's parts.

          And of course, sites like RT have active user communities that add a great deal of user-generated content in the form of reviews and comments.

          In some ways, this is "auto-blogging" done right, however in order to "do it right" in this manner, there is a huge upfront investment in time, effort, and expense - not at all something amenable to scale.

          Sorry about starting a new stream but I didn't spot this one.

          A short quote from the Auto Blog System X is as follows:-

          "Auto blogs are one of the most closely guarded, underground methods for traffic generation and profit
          .
          When done the right way, they work on absolute auto-pilot to feed content, traffic, and profits into your business.
          Instead of writing each individual post to your blog, auto blogs allow you to create unique content from other people's work."

          I have seen nothing in the ebook to show how unique content is created from the work of other people.

          Another matter that is very swiftly glossed over is how you are supposed to utilise a list of thousands of keywords. Bearing in mind that the publicity that introduced me to this stated that I would receive $100 if I did not make $1,000 in the first seven days (no - I didn't believe it but hoped for 5% veracity) and it took me two days to research and create my first blog using the guidelines - a huge credibility gap yawned in front of me.

          Ah, well, gullibility sells more than quality does, it seems.

        You are confused because this is not a real guide at all. It's a blueprint at best.

        For someone who claims that others can make bank and he'll stake a c-note on it, he doesn't seem to really all know too well how to set up a profitable automated blog. The guide is pure theory. He even goes back on himself to say 'maybe not use that' in his guide! I'm sorry, but if you are the expert you claim to be, you should know exactly what we should and should not use.

        He gives no real structure, order, or details; he tells you what plugins you can use and gives a brief description on them that you could find on their salespages or on the plugins' site. He doesn't tell you what to actually DO with them and how to set them up properly.

        The videos are just as big a joke. They are JUST AS VAGUE, and at no point does he show a finished blog. The videos CONVENIENTLY skip over the mu-setup (because it really is a bit more difficult than the page he links to--yes, that's right, he doesn't even take the time out to tell you how to set it up yourself, he links you to a post on how to setup wp-mu in wordpress 3.0--as the page he links to does not address all the issues that can and will arise when you attempt to follow it). He also CONVENIENTLY sidesteps showing how to find a niche to start with. He gives an example he had already came up with as noted in the guide but doesn't say how he got to that example. There are a ton of ways to find good niches, and his is certainly not one of them; at least not completely--it's a step in the overall process, but by itself it will leave the novices clueless (even though he says on his salespage that you don't have to know anything to succeed with this 'guide').

        I call BS on his entire package. I bought it too under the false pretense of the 250 only sold and the $100 guarantee. I am making every attempt to follow this guide, but as it has no real direction and is as vague as can be, it has been a struggle. I feel like I have been had (again--I'm used to it with these so-called 'experts' or 'gurus') and am willing to bet that he will have a 'good reason' NOT to honor his $100 guarantee. Heck, I'd rather be proven wrong, but I just can't seem to 'follow' his mess; I simply must interject my own knowledge of the field and I think that this alone will cause him to go back on his guarantee. But folks, there is no way in God's green earth that you will make any money within 7 days ATTEMPTING to follow his 'guide'.

        Utterly disgusted.

          I just got Rob's email about Auto Blog System X and thought I'd check here and IMReportCard.com before ordering. That's now a standard practice for me before getting anything anymore as I can be an IM junkie.

          If anyone is still interested in his program, when I clicked off his sales pg I got a pg offering the program for $27.

          Also, I tried his auto blogging program which was free but like allaboutthebenjis, haven't seen any benefit from it.

              For whatever it's worth (my 2 cents that is).

              1. I have seen auto content tank sites and a few were mine. It is not the best feeling to have a site #1 and now not in the top 20 PAGES!

              2. I think we should all remember that Google doesn't care about the marketer. They care about searcher experience. They know that if they have enough searchers wanting stuff, we will trip over our (fill in the _____) to get those eyeballs on our offers. So, they cater to the searcher.
              The 800 pound Gorilla can rip your stinkin head off so why fight it when banana's are so much cheaper.

              You give the monkey the banana and you get paid....What, there's a question?

            I knew it! I have a sneaky feeling after I bought that if I click away first, the price will come down. I really don't like that kind of tactics.

            eBook has OK information, it's probably worth $27 not $37 I paid for.

            They want you to get extra stuff and let you know that's the way to make it really work! So it's not as rosy as sales copy makes it to be when you buy the eBook. I didn't fall for the upsell.

              The thing that most people get suckered into on this system and many others like it, is that they want that quick money making tool so bad that they jump in right away and buy and only realize after a month of hard work that it was for nothing.

              Auto Blogging is a science and not a quick 5 minute blast of auto content plugins that you set and forget. Google and the other top search engines have now gotten so good at weeding these crap sites out that you are just wasting time and money if you don't do it right.

              I make a lot of money auto blogging and I do it by creating value added sites that are built for the visitor, not for quick hit cash. You can do this, but you have to use SEO, Backlink Building, and focus on your content more than ever before. With my methods, you don't even think about making big money until after 2 months have passes and you have gone in and out of the Google Sandbox. You have to play this game smarter. There are no more get rich quick schemes that will last long with thousands of people doing them anymore.

              Patience and a solid plan of action is the only thing that will take you to solid monthly profits, but you also must have the knowledge to go with that and be patient enough to learn it from the right source.

              Just my 2 Cents.

    I hate courses where people are making $1k a day by selling 5 different clickbank products, and all that.

    But in every new product, they say that "See how i make 1k a day with XYZ".

    This is fake and it pisses me off because its not the truth. If you're selling a method, show how much money the specific method makes. Not how much money you make.

    Hi

    I was going to buy the offer for $27. But at the end of the day, if something is making someone hundreds of thousands of dollars then why would they offer their tried and tested system for $27? Unless the effectiveness of the system is at the end of its lifecycle I doubt if such a successful system would ever be made available at such a low price...

    If I had a tried and tested system that lets say pulled me in a monthly revenue of just $5,000, I would sell the system for $1,997 and sell just 25 copies,verify the customer and have a non-disclosure agreement so they couldn't pass on the knowledge.

    So I am always skeptical with systems that say they have earned so much money and then they come up with a price of $27 for the system. Plus, 250 copies sold at $27 is just $6,750 (less affiliate commissions). What is the point, a hard sell just for a small 4 figure revenue, unless there's something larger on the backend, there is none...

    I got an email regarding fb siphon and that guys marketing is so full of holes, inaccuracies and lies, I wouldn't part with my money for that product either.

    Just my thoughts...

    Regards

    Or perhaps blogs installed on subdomains as subniches. That way
    you can centralise blog installation and save a huge sum of money.

    Glenn

    This would be easier to administrate ... but the author suggests using a separate domain and IP address for each blog in case of getting slapped by the SERPS. If you were on one domain (or even IP address) all of your blogs could get slapped at one time.

    It never stops to amaze me...

    Your are selling a system that made you over $200,000 in one month for $37 and you will offer a $10 discount if someone tries to exit the page... Doesn't that ring bells for you as soon as you see it?

    I don't know how he can gaurantee anyone that they will make $1000 dollars in one week and I am not sure that is even legal (if I am wrong, sorry).

    In any case, I will never buy anything that comes with such a ridiculous gaurantee. You simply can't gaurantee that. EVER!

    The 250 limit is simply a joke. You are going through all the trouble of creating a product just to make $9,250 and that is only if you sell it alone with no affiliates. Does that sound possible to anyone?

    I am so glad that the days I was suckered into buying such products are over. It is not about the money, more about the waste of time and the fact you lose focus with every new product you buy.

    Just my thoughts...

      This was mentioned by a few people and it's very true. Perhaps the system actually produced those results for them - briefly. Then when they realized the results couldn't be repeated they turned the anomoly into a USP.

      I don't know if I would release my consistantly successful techniques into the wild for any amount (excluding obviously impractical sums).

      So maybe that's where the opportunity lies for making money.. Actually having a product of your own to sell and make money.

      In the end, if you put a little time, effort and research into your online endeavors you will get something out of every product you may buy or have bought in the past. The product it self may not make you money but it may inspire you to create your own.

      It's all about taking action. I believe anyone can make money online, it really is quite simple but you do have to put in the effort and have a positive can-do attitude.

      A few years ago I had over $63,000 debt and maxed out all my credit. I had no job and literally just a few hundred bucks for the month left but I still kept a positive attitude that I could make it work. In total I spent about 6 months researching various ways of making money online, lost a bucket load of my (borrowed) money etc. however, I learned from it and stayed positive. I wrote down positive affirmations, motivational quotes and a goal sheet and placed them all around my computer desk so I would be able to see them every time I was sitting behind my computer.

      Trust me, this does miracles! Also, highlighting your goals with different colors actually helps as your brain works better when it sees color.

      In my last month of pretty much running out of ALL my money, I finally cracked the code and started making money from the internet. A few thousand at first that quickly increased to close to $100,000 per month.

      I believe it IS possible for ANYONE! Maybe not $100k in your first month but any money you can earn online is a fantastic start right?!

      All the best everyone!

      Hi, again, Jijosunny.

      That book is a piece of PLR. He didn't even claim authorship of the book, it says: "Rob Benwell presents..."

      I did learn that WP has a multisite feature.

      He claims Google won't know your sites are connected if you setup multisite WP and use domain names to each subdirectory.

      I never saw anything in the book indicating you can make $1000 in a short time frame. I guess I was supposed to create 20 blogs and sell the package for $1000. But that is only after it has a track record. hmmm.

      One of my big questions is the frequency of the content, and sometimes, the source. It mentions the sources in passing, but never the frequency of the posts.

      BTW, I just got the news that ClickBank refunded my PP today Wanna guess where from?

        I'd add my 2 cents

        Autoblogging can be but don't have to be about some scraped content or spamming blogs! There is some misinformation here.

        You CAN have an authority blog with autoblogging! Use your own articles, posts, media and post it on autopilot! How does that stand against Google and other search engines??

        Of course, you can combine and mix that content with some PLR articles (preferably edited) and add some media - like videos from YouTube.

        You'll increase user experience and provide tons of useful information on a subject. There's a difference on building an autoblog and building a blog that automates few things!

        Marian

        p.s. There are quite a few things you can do with blogs making them very useful 'autoblogs', actually very powerful stuff.

            Auto blogging as posting unique content that you have created and just scheduled to post is totally different. Auto blogging where you grab content from other sites is what I have a problem with.

            Besides anything that I don't have to do is automatic for me, that means if I hire a writer and hire someone to build links then I just created automatic site.

            The problem is with the products selling information saying that you can create a site that grabs content from somewhere else and it makes you money lol all within your first week lmao Get real!

            Mike, looks like you got it right. But I still think that a profitable auto content site needs a lot of custom programming to be done right. It needs to be a brand and provide VALUE. What newbies don't realize is that it requires bigger investment than what they are being told (lied) by some marketers out there.

      I doubt I'll get the promised 100 bucks, but my money back would be nice. I wasted an entire weekend setting up two blogs, paid for 2 domain names and haven't seen a single cent in return.

          Don't bother going through BTTB for support or refunds, go straight to clickbank and use their refunding system as the guarantee comes from them, as long as you have your clickbank receipt number and its within 60 das, you should have no problems

              Thanks for report, and his stuff is definitely poorly organized, I bought his early version of blogging to the bank two years ago, and it was a mess.

    Time for a little self scrutiny: If I have to come HERE to find out WHAT a product is before I buy it, then it's probably no good. And there are so many products out there that that it's best to respect the proababilities.

    Try this: Look at again at the Auto Blog System X sales page and video. Now compare it to Market Warrior, Speed PPC, and Artisteer sites (none of these products are perfect, but they are very good!). Their sites tell you WHAT the product is.

    As Warriors we need to master the yin and the yang of marketing - sure pressure stacking landing pages WORK (scarcity, 'proof', pressure stacking etc.), but in general they are not needed for high value products - and I mean value, not price. There are some folks who combine both approaches...but there are usually substitute products you can get for a lot less money.

    I do think that the scarcitry tactic used on the salespage is total BS and if he keeps to the guarantee I will buy for $27 to get $100 back.

    Looking at the spam comments on my blog at least 50% are all promoting this site, so I think that tells you everything you need to know about the system.

    All the best blogs have askimet installed as standard, so yes the tactics may generate lots of traffic, but the quality is going to be questionable and like anything automated once lots of people start using it then it's going to lose it's power.

    Lastly is it possible to email anyone at clickbank and ask them why they allowed a product they knew would sell more than 250 units to have such BS on the page. The same goes for all the exit pop-ups that people are using.

    There is one thing good on all of this BS, the wp bot is actually pretty good, it has help me to keep my site live mixing articles with videos and amazon offers and my own content in one post (that is what make the content unique).

    Analyzing the refund offer it says, and I quote "I Also GUARANTEE That If You Run With This Strategy YOU’LL Be Able To Make At The Very Least $1,000 By This Time Next Week… Again, If You Prove Me Wrong I’ll Send You $100!"

    So if you prove them that you bought the domain through his godaddy link (cha-ching! commission), and the $100 month hostgator hosting through his link (cha-ching! again...) and the software he recommends ("cha-ching! cha-ching!) it didn't work for you he give you $100 back, guess how much he made in commissions.

    The upsell from the ready made auto blog is BS, never get word of them after 12 days, so I refund them (lately I'm becoming a serial refunder, I'm getting a bad reputation on clickbank because of this kind of guys!).

      I noticed that two things happened, he put Blogging to the Bank back on bloggingtothebank.com and he closed the support desk for SystemX.

      I'm So Confident Auto Blog System X Will Work For You I'll Even Bet $100 On It... If You Don't Make $1,000 In The Next 7 Days Then I'll Give You $100 Out Of My Own Pocket... You Can't Lose!

      I don't know what he did to make $4k in his first month, but based on the numbers in the course, it took a miracle, or one huge investment.

      "I like to keep any site that can average $1 per day."
      "since I'm able to create hundreds of auto blogs quickly and easily without much of an investment beyond the time it takes to build them..."
      (concerning Hostgator account) "...meaning each site needs to make about $3 per month for you to break even (not including domain registration costs)."
      "Only use .com domains."
      "I can think of better ways to spend my time than logging into 300 different admin panels..."
      "if most sites sell for $50 each..."
      "20 site package = $1,000"
      Bad sites need to make $3/month so there is a minimum.
      The most he mentions for good sites is $3/day. Sell the duds for 6-12 times the monthly income, which it will not have in 7 days, but then you need to sell 20 sites for $50 each.
      Godaddy .com domains are 10.69 each, plus .40 ICANN fee. so they are now $11 each. He says he can produce hundreds quickly. No time frame, but we are talking about blogs making $3-$5 per day, so 1000/5 = 200 / 6 = 33.33, or 34 sites must be created your first day AND produce an average of $5.00 per day for the remaining 6 days. 33 X 11 = $363 in domain names alone!

      Unless you outsource the work, you cannot produce that many sites with all the details listed in the course in seven days.

      He does talk about monetizing with CPA offers, which might outperform Adsense. But, setting up hundreds of .com websites at $11 each very quickly is beyond the scope of most of his buyers.

      Then again, he doesn't claim authorship of the book, either. So he didn't make a dime doing things this way.

      As for his guarantee for $100, I think next week I'll ask the support desk about how to qualify for it.

    I have identified three levels of auto-blogging. Here they are:
    Assisted AutoBlogging, Semi-AutoBlogging, and Full-AutoBlogging (what is taught in System X.)

    Assisted AutoBlogging: Basically, this is like the drip feed that comes with WP. You enter 52 articles and drip feed them one per week for a year. Site author has to keep this site updated periodically.

    Semi-AutoBlogging: Caffeinated Content does this. It retrieves a number of posts and schedules them out over a long period of time. This site also needs periodic management.

    Full-AutoBlog: WP Robot and Mage can be set to retrieve material and post it as often as desired. Left alone, it will theoretically work forever.

    From what I have read, semi-autoblogging works best when content is hand massaged and time released.

    One other semi-autoblogging system I have is interesting in that it does not use any WP plugins. The general idea is that you setup an email account to receive articles every day. You massage the articles to clean them up and forward them to an email account that has filters in it. These filters look for keywords and forward the email again, to each of your blogs that uses that keyword. So two articles come in and you clean them up and adjust the keywords a bit. Then you forward the message to another email account. This account sends the first message to, say five different blogs based on keywords found. The second message is sent to two of the same blogs the first one was sent to and to three different blogs because of slightly different keyword selections.

    I started to try this method, but I failed to get the configuration of my Linux email clients to cooperate.

      If there is one thing for sure! No one will do work for you and all things that are automated the searchengines don´´t like.
      Do some more work and then create great blogs or websites for sale. Write an ebook and make some money with real work.
      The thing search engines don't like is mechanized trickery. If you can create a blog that pulls content from other sites legally, and it becomes legitimately popular so that it draws visitor who link back to it because they like it, the search engines will rank it high. If you try to convince the search engines that your site is alive and active with visitors when it is not, you are trying to trick the SEs. This is called "Black Hat." SEs don't like black hat.

      The first "IM Course" I took taught how to setup a site that stole RSS feeds and published them on blogger fully automated. The key tool shut down while I was creating my first site. I have the tools for that now, but I don't consider that an appropriate tactic any longer. There are legitimate sources of content that can be acquired by email, RSS feed, and by downloading from certain sites.

      I just discovered FaceBook Groups. One of the groups I visited has hundreds of posts on the 'wall'. The owner of the group only posted two posts in the last four to five weeks. The rest of the activity is handled by the members. That is a good example of one form of automated site. And, yes, others are doing the work and the owner does not pay them.

      I have only two autoblogs right now, and they are both duds, but they both paid for two years of their expenses the first year so I am keeping them around for now. All of the books I have read about autoblogging depend on lots of sites being setup and lots of sites failing, but like System X, they suggest selling the duds and continually replacing them. A couple of the courses have said they compared fully automated blogs with hand-massaged automated blogs. That means you manually screen and touch up the content before allowing it to be published. These sites tend to do much better than fully automated blogs, and their automation is less obvious to the search engines.

      Before I encountered this one, not one course I have seen ever said to expect more that $3-$4/day from any blog but you might experience an exceptional blog that may make twice that. They all teach to count on keeping blogs making over $1/day and selling those that make less.

      Someone else in this thread said it as well, but one of the biggest things I learned about "Automated Income" for Internet marketing is that it means that someONE else does the work instead of you!

      To maximize the effect of autoblogging, one needs to do some maintenance to the sites. It may be to constantly build new ones, or to perk up those making money. That service can be outsourced.

      One blogger claims he makes his wealth by having nearly 1000 sites producing an average of $3/day each. For $3000 per day, I can outsource a lot of maintenance and new site building. But, not today. I am afraid I will have to build up to that.

      Is Autoblogging secure income? Not unless you can use it to build a list. When that happens, it will exponentially increase its value. In the meantime, it is another job, but it can eventually pay better than most other jobs.

      FWIW

      It is safer to unsubscribe from everyone than to be subscribed to one bad one.

      Actually, the only "good" product is the one you actually work! Nothing else matters so there are no other good products. When you purchase a product, if the emails don't offer supporting information to that product, then unsubscribe from it.

      If you don't have a product, look here: Full Case Study
      It is a Warrior Forum product for FREE. It closely resembles Mike Filsaime and Chris Farrell's current product launch, and it is FREE!

      It has a good outline and when you have questions, you just ask them on that thread. You'll get answers and if you stick with it and ignore the nay-sayers, you will eventually succeed. Free product, Free coaching, Excelent advice. What else could you ask for?

      Fire all the pushers! ... uh, gurus and start making money!

    This is the information age equivalent of being a "snake oil salesman". I think it's disgusting that clickbank doesn't police operators like this somewhat more diligently. I've already posted a support ticket to ask how I claim my guarantee - but I don't hold much hope for that - I'll post an update here if anything does happen.

    For anyone giving consideration to purchasing this product - forget it.

      As the problem grows, and it always does, Clickbank will eventually start policing itself better when someone gets too high a return rate.

      One of the problems I have heard about from other marketers is that 1/2 of all their products sold are never OPENED! One of the multi-millionaire marketers says he buys every product from anyone who makes a certain level of income so he can see what they are doing and to possibly extract one small nugget from the course. Most of the courses sit around 6 months or longer before he gets to them. (don't remember who, but I think it was in a Frank Kern video)

        I don't know your experience, but I can't say there is nothing you can get from the course that might be worth the money.

        However, the marketing of the course makes it prime candidate for the FTC to move in for the kill! Personally, I did not find anything in the course that would suggest that I could make immediate income.

I was about to go for this course but then I came across this thread by chance which saved me a lot of frustration, wastage of time apart from the investment part of it.

    Just for fun...

    I bought Auto Blog System X yesterday..I skipped all the upsells naturally.

    IMO: Quite a lot of it is very vague to say the least and what is the point of saying something then in the next breath retracting it..silly!

    If it is meant to be a blueprint then, it simply is not because there are quite a few confusing statements ( probably done on purpose to help sell the upsell so to speak) such as..set up either sub-domain or sub-directory..sitemaps etc..confuse the visitor so they quickly leave your site via an offer..The report contradicts itself in several places and you will need to use your own common sense at all times..

    This being said, for me personally I found a lot of value in parts e.g. the plugins recommended and the WP-MU so, I don't feel the money was badly spent.

    Having just got back from 3 weeks holiday, I used Carty's Auto Blogging system to feed about 50 blogs while away however, checking today, most of the content was missed schedule, this morning had to go find a plug in to cure this problem, kind of defeated the object..

    Currently I'm experimenting with hosted auto blogs useing the following systems:-

    Simple adsense theme + Carty's software + WP Unique

    Posts are a mixture of Ezine, Amazon RS, CB and my original initial posts set with custom post order..to date, I've had an increase in AdSense revenue so it so far looks promising..time will tell.

    Lastly in the report Rob mentions flipping blogs which are not making money..and move on to another project..I think a lot of marketers hang on to duds waiting forever to see if they come good..so again not a bad bit of advice..

    In conclusion: I don't regret buying it.. yet lol..

What I dnt get is why well known IM'ers like Russell Brunson, Matt Bacak, and a few others I cant recall at the moment... are promoting his products. You'd think they'd be more careful with their list. I've already began optin put of some of these IM'ers list.

    Never promote a product you know wont do well/haven't applied the strategies or concepts your self.

    I bought auto blog X about a month, mainly due to the fact it was recommended by someone who i trust, however, after reading the system which seems very plausible but at times has you making changes to your wp-config.php (no problem), but what I did find frustrating was when I did have a problem, you just do not get any support from BTTB, and when I did get a reply to a ticket i posted it gave me instructions on how to claim a refund, very un-usual, that was also tied in to getting millions of emails promoting 1 product or another every day OTT in my opinion.

    With all that said, i am unable to set up the network, with all the plugins that are recommended, the plugins activate in the primary domain but not in the sub-domain, even though my admin panel for the primary tells me its updating the network, and all is done

      Was your problem related to Wordpress or the actual product you bought?

      I wouldn't expect Rob or his staff to assist you with a Wordpress related problem, that's what the Wordpress support forums and the Wordpress community are for.

      With all that said, i am unable to set up the network, with all the plugins that are recommended, the plugins activate in the primary domain but not in the sub-domain, even though my admin panel for the primary tells me its updating the network, and all is done
      Do you use the latest WordPress release (3.0.1)?

    autoblogging works and will always do. I want to know how many are implementing Yahoo! pipes for autoblogging. Its an awesome tool . Do use it if you havent. You can get truly unique content using it like google new does.

    Regards,

    Good luck with getting your $100 Buck - I tried that too but when I took them task I was given the cold shoulder - in my opinion it's this sort of marketing that the feds should climb into - It's complete BS!

    My personal opinion is anything "Auto" is not going to (1) produce a website of value, (2) perform in the search engines and (3) Convert the traffic. If neither of those happen, then what is the point?

    So that averages to about $10 a subdomain? If you don't mind me asking, how long did it take you to make that $1000?

      HI, I have a about 50% of my auto blogs doing great in the search engines..You can still provide value if you pull your content from a good source though, there are a lot of factors to consider...

      Such as, age of the domain, the niche, the competition the keywords you rank for etc..it's endless...

      Some people can hit the big money with one blog so you do have a valid point about "auto blogging"..a lot depends on how you set up your business in the first place..just my opinion.

      Anyway, well done that man to make 1k is very good now go forth and multiply
