Auto Blog System X - suckered again!

10 replies
Does anybody know anything about Auto Blog System X?

My brother read the email from Tim Bekker which said $100 would be received if $1,000 was not made in 7 days. We both agreed this was typical IM hogwash but even at 5%, $50 in the first week would be acceptable.

The system by Rob Benwell seems to rely upon setting up loads of auto blogs targetting thousands of key words. I could see that several hundred such blogs earningg several dollars a day could possibly provide a return of $200,000 in a month (as claimed in Rob's sales letter) but what am I missing?

I opened a ticket in Tim Bekker's support desk 72 hours ago and one in Rob Benwells 48 hours ago but (I know, I should never believe any IMer who says he will reply in 24 hours but, sod it, I did!) to see if I was reading the ebook incorrectly (I have very bad eye-sight so it is possible) so if any Warrior has seen this system or tried it, I would like to know if I am missing something.

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 paid $27 for Benwells ebook. It does not promise to make millions with one blog. It does as you say, it requires you to set up hundreds of blogs.

    So yes, I agree, that the cost of doing so initially would be more than you would make the first month. But the system would bring $1 or more per day per blog for months to follow. I've never seen a real business where you don't have to invest something upfront in order to profit in the end.

    I've used almost all of wp plugins he recommends and they do work. I've not used them in the fashion he describes.

    I'm not validating the system, but it doesn't seem off track at first glance.

    So those are my thoughts after a quick run through the system.

    oh by the way, I do agree that RB support is slow. I've put in several tickets with them and had a tough time getting replies. I still have an open one there for a different issue.

    Have a great day

      Thanks Wayne,

      At least you have confirmed that I appear to have read the book correctly. I didn't believe that I would make the claimed $1000 in the first week and the idea of using lots of blogs (or web sites) making small amounts regularly is hardly unique.

      The idea of targetting thousands of key words is not expanded so I am wondering if his idea is that you have a separate blog for each key word or lots of posts in each blog targetting several of them?

      Never mind - maybe I should have talked my brother into the upsell but it was too expensive.

      You might not like what I say - but I believe it.
      Build it, make money, then build some more
      Some old school smarts would help - and here's to Rob Toth for his help. Bloody good stuff, even the freebies!

    About the only way to make money with autoblogs is by setting up hundreds of them. In the autoblogging game, it's strictly a numbers game. One that I was eager to try early on, because the concept is simple. The result is that I bought all of these domains and am now officially a burned out IMer.

    This sounds so spammy to me. I just feel anyone considering such a tactic has rather much given up on thinking.

      Exactly. How can 143 blogs in 7 days NOT be spam?

        They're not always spam. Look up the definition of "spam" - don't be so quick to jump to conclusions.

        Most of them simply pull content from other sources that allow such a thing through an API.

        It's not a very effective IM strategy (especially for a beginner). You will never average $1/day per site by just doing this.

        I would go with a small number of quality, non-auto content blogs.

          I would agree here. When content is pulled together correctly, from other sources, it doesn't make it spam. So flying the "spam" word around is definitely not valid. News sources, newspapers, magazines, and all sorts of information sources pull their content automatically from other sources. It's all in how you package it.

          Also, I agree this tactic is not for beginners at all. It will cost you upfront in both time and money. There is nothing easy about setting up such a system without other resources to help you. Having read through his ebook, this is not something you do in 30 minutes spare time. It takes time, and it can really produce a lot of losers.

          RB is truly an auto-blogger. In fact, I can't recall ever seeing an authority blog from him that really is useful. I believe he has said the same thing himself.

          I have never had much luck with any kind of auto blog, so I stick with the niche authority blogs and such. But I believe that is just a personal choice. Bill McRea uses autoblogging quite successfully as well. So you can't just "pooh pooh" it all away because you don't like autoblogs.

          Have a great day!

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