    Like the wp robot? Is a blog based on that worth anything?

    I don't know from experience but I think these shortcuts are getting harder and harder to use.

    Instead of autoblogging, curation seems to be the recommended way to go about it these days.

    Also, PLR is fine, but you should modify and even put it in different formats for the most benefit.

    They're not dead, but increasingly hard to get search engine traffic to them. High quality content and good backlinks will trump these any day of the year. Also maybe Panda hasn't killed them, however you don't know when and which Google update will! Maybe the next 'black bear' update will deindex all autoblogs, then you're screwed :-/

    My blogs, who either use PLR content or autoblogging (or sometimes both) are still doing well, but I do mix it up with quality, unique content. As long as you make sure that the quality of what you put on your site (whether it's plr or autoblogs) fits the search engines standards, you shouldn't have a problem.

    I do recommend you rewrite the PLR content though, I try to get around 30% minimum, sometimes more. With the autoblogging I check my blogs once a week or more (depending on how often a post is created) to see whether all the content that gets added really fits the niche I'm working in and if the quality is where I want it to be. I don't just let it run and forget about it.

    It is never dead until it no longer exists on the internet, but getting ranking from PLR or from auto blog content is not going to be easy anymore. You are better off putting up unique content with proper SEO.

    Thanks for all the comments, they give me a good place to go. I liked the no more than 30% plr suggestion.

    Not really. I still so many people earning lot with auto blog.
    Maybe you just need to add on more onsite and offsite SEO to help you because your competitive keywords may high .

    Autoblogging works, but like some others have said you can't just create a new blog and expect it to get amazing results right off the bat.

    If you let it post and post for a few months and get some authority then come back to it, you can definitely do some damage with it.

      I suppose, like a couple of people have alluded to, that the off-page SEO stuff is pretty much as important as the inbound, on-page material. So having the two working in tandem can still get you great results.

      Whilst I think that PLR is a great aid in content generation, perhaps people are getting a bit too lazy these days. The major work has been done by the PLR provider, but the best results can obviously be achieved by making simple adjustments and tweaks to create a unique article or post. And it doesn't even have to be a full rewrite!

      I mean, it would take a tiny bit of work but...

    You won't get any problem with PLR contents until rewrite them in own words, or you can use PLR contents as idea resources like I do how? read the PLR article, note down useful ideas you're gotten through reading, search internet & find additional contents, Build own articles around captured information.

    Thanks. I think also that Google likes richer sites with more articles. Maybe they would overlook some work that was mostly duplicated if most was original.

      They don't overlook anything. It's a script, automated program that crawls the web and decides ranking. You can rank basically anything with high quality backlinks, good branding, lots of +1s lately. However it's a lot easier to rank original, good content and will pay off in the long run very well for you.
