Hello. Just for learning I want to try to build an autoblog, sharing my posts on facebook through iftt and throwing some cash on facebook ads...
So I'm building an auto blog in the news site. I read to monetize this kind of websites the best way is to use Adsense but there are high risk of getting banned. While I never had an adsense account, I'm not feeling okay in throwing away my google account just for testing. So may you please suggest me some monetization method for me please? Do Amazon allow to publish links in autocontents websites? If not, what should I choose?

    Dont do an autoblog. If you want to blog, start a blog around a particular interest where your targeted prospects are easily accessible. Autoblogs were a fad in the past. Now they have no power in the realm of online marketing. Either make your blog your primary money getter via CPA, or use it to build an audience and fan base to help promote a product of some sort.

    I recommend that you start a real blog, not an autoblog. You need 100% original content in order to rank in the search engines. Google and other search engines do not like duplicate content and you would probably be banned from Google Adsense if you place ads on an autoblog.

    Hi Hafu,

    Buy your domain and hosting, get on Wordpress.org and learn blogging from pros.

    Practice writing daily in a Word document. Create helpful content. Build friendships by promoting leaders in your niche.

    This is how to do blogging effectively and you'll also enjoy the ride, having fun.

    Auto blogging is definitely dead and buried buddy.

    The only way to make an autoblog work is if the reader can't tell it's an autoblog, and very few are capable of pulling that off. Most would-be autobloggers are looking for something they set and forget, and that doesn't work.

    At best, you might get by with what I call a semi-autoblog, where you invest time in moderating what your software pulls in.

    That's just the mechanical aspect of autoblogging. Since most all autoblogs are scrape and repost from RSS feeds, you definitely stand to run into problems with copyright infringement. Piss off the wrong people, and losing an Adsense account will be the least of your worries.

    I go for semi-autoblog. Full autoblogs (set and forget) are useless.

    You can go for a software that helps to build your blog quickly, but you have to check your content and make it good for the reader
