Can We Really Use Blog Automation?
What do we really mean when we talk about Blog Automation because it covers a lot of ground,first there are a number of products that literally automate the whole process,they are effectively affiliate blog sites and are a good thing in the sense that they require very little work but a bad thing in that they are quite grey to black hat in how they work although some would argue about that
So if Blog Automation is that simple why doesn’t everybody stop all the lengthy process of researching and developing posts and just do this instead? well our reasons for blogging are many and varied from purely financial reasons to that which I think many fall into which is a desire to create an income combined with a desire to educate and inform
I dont know about you but much as Blog Automation fascinates me I would get no real pride in just putting up a bunch of sites that I had no real part in developing or building a relationships with the people coming to them,now to quote Michael Gerber when talking about testing when he says who cares why it works (take the money and run) it works, that may be true but there is the question of ethics as well
When I say that Blog Automation in the sense of self generating blogs is black hat what do I mean? well the fact that you need to host them on a different server to your main sites,that you need to put them in clusters of no more than 20 to 30 at a time and that you need to buy the domains in lots of different names to me looks at least a bit grey,you are trying to stop google seeing what you are up to
Now the arguement is this, each Blog Automation site brings in $5-$500 Dollars a month and that you can create these sites in 20 minutes flat,if we do the math it sounds like a no brainer, maybe Michael Gerber was right, Bye! only joking!
Won’t Blog Automation Get Me Banned?
But and I think it’s a big but after all this work your efforts at Blog Automation could well be banned and all that hard work wiped out in an instant, it’s not my place to judge but I think you should be aware of the dangers
Okay Tony we hear what your saying now just show us the Blog Automation sites,you can keep your moral stuff we just want the money, well okay let’s look at a couple of these sites that have been promoted in the last few weeks, one openly as an automated blogging site and one being sold as an instant traffic solution
I wrote about the first one on my blog on the 20th September this year http://tiny.cc/lgw9p in some detail, basically it brings in all the content, all the supporting affiliate advertising and I would have to say having looked at one previously far from looking like a quick lash up they are highly professional in appearance and importantly very readable,have a look here http://tiny.cc/jxqm6 Blog Automation is coming of age
Thw second one I was more cautious of, primarily because it masked what it was but went down the tried and tested Clickbank route of Clickbank Affiliate Marketer raids Clickbank with secret software that rakes in $45,833.37 monthly maybe a touch optomistic but it is actually a Blog Automation plugin that does what we described above, I shared this on Twitter a while ago,go here to take a look http://tiny.cc/ixkum the starting price is lower but with upsells it goes up
So Is There A More Open Form Of Blog Automation?
Well yes there is,later on this week I am going to give away a report on the 100 best plugins to use on your blog,this will not be some backdoor upsell, the report is free and all the plugins listed are free, how you might be wondering does this help with Blog Automation well as you will see they either talk you through the steps to doing a particular task or in the case of many they actually perform the task for you
Now there are some great Blog Automation paid plugins for tasks such as social bookmarking,rss feeds,creating secure paypal download areas and frankly dozens more, in the end they are a time verses money case as I have covered before and time is money,pure and simple
What is the best paid Blog Automation plugin, the one that really does what it says on the tin, I would have to say one that actually tells you what you need to do to your blog posts to get them to rank highly in the search engines, it is simple but brilliant and comes highly recommended,I use it on every post I put up now http://tiny.cc/0d9bg I did a post on it amongst other things on the 19th July this year if you want to take a look http://tiny.cc/a11bs
So clearly a topic we could talk on for days,there are dozens if not hundreds of plugins, tools and software programs to help you automate and you must do it as much as possible,so go and try Blog Automation
