Auto-blogging or something else ?

22 replies
Hey, Recently i've been trying some premium methods someone gave me.. One of those was auto-blogging and even though i'm not expecting much. I decided to make 10 sites.

But now i'm kinda lost. You have to know i'm from belgium so my native language is Dutch which means less competition or well that is what people have told me.

I was thinking about starting a Travel blog but i rather do something i can count on So if there is any sugestions ? My budget at this moment = 0 But all i have i'll save for traffic

    ET,

    Don't believe everything you hear . . . auto-blogging is not a premium method . . . in fact, it is a very poor choice, IMO, for making money online. Who wants to read auto blogs? No one. Will they bring you high quality traffic or valuable backlinks? No. Go online and read what Google says about auto-generated content and linking within private networks.

    Auto blogging is something that won't make you profitable for the long haul. Like Steve said, who wants to read an auto-blog? How can you make an authority site out of this? And what kind of personality will your content have? I think you should consider another business/marketing model.

    Why 10? Maybe, 100 sites?
    Just kidding.
    Auto-blogging works pretty well back in 2008. Now it's a waste of time. Create one website, develop, promote, and you'll succeed. If you have no money to invest, start a free website with wordpress.com, or Blogspot.

    Maybe it's time to build those sites up a bit and then sell the domains. Try to get backlinks to them first. Easier said than done, of course.

    Exclusive Tshirts,

    I agree with Steve autoblogging or auto-anything for that matter is not a good choice. The internet is looking for fresh content and it is best if you are creating it on your media of preference.

    In my opinion the 3 best social sites to generate traffic are Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Video is king, so you want to be using video.

    Some other pointers: the best markets are English speaking countries with money, otherwise known as Top Tier markets (United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand). That being said you are best to use English. Don't worry if it's not your primary language, some of the top marketers do not speak English as their primary language.

    Autoblogging is definitely not the way to go. Google won't even index pages generated by autoblogs.
    Generally speaking blogging is a long term strategy to build your business.

    These days YouTube marketing and facebook (video) marketing seem to be the most effective strategies to build your audience

    Create your Brand on socialMedia ( facebook :-) and so on ) and destroy your competition...

    yep make $5K - $10K per month like us without auto-blogging, it is not good today as it was years ago (believe me).

    Like others has said, auto-blogging is not a great choice.

    However, a better choice for you would be pick a niche you know something about--and stick to that.

    Put up a site, it does not have to be massive, gradually add pages, and get out there on social media and just be helpful--give people good advice.

    Follow the big players in your niche.

    In general, just help people out--and keep promoting your site.

    After you get going and get comfortable, you can start building a list from the traffic you are getting to the site.

    Say a weekly newsletter or free report.

    But, do this gradually, do not go crazy, and then get burned out.

    Hope this helps.

    Auto blogging serves only as tier 2 Seo layer for 2.0 website, as backlink

    This is probably not the answer you want to hear but I would stay away from auto blogging. It's not a good long term strategy.

    IMO your better off just doing the blogging on your own. You'll get better results.

    Gonna have to go with Steve here. 6 years ago I sold a WSO to help people the first time autoblogging died. It has not been reincarnated yet.

    Before going for auto blogging, consider and think what will be alternative if:
    Your Subject Trends Out of Favor?
    Your Keywords Change?
    Your RSS Feeds Outrank Your Site?
    The Feed Articles are Syndicated to Sites That Outrank Yours?
    Google Changes Their Algorithms?

    It used to be a good strategy a few years ago. Now it's a complete waste of time.
