What is autoblogging? If you’ve been in the internet marketing field for any amount of time you’ve probably heard this word before, but that doesn’t mean that you really know what it means or what it refers to. Autoblogging is a potentially lucrative and powerful internet marketing method that involves using automatic systems and plugins to regularly update blogs. Essentially, it’s a set of systems, tools and strategies that make blogging an automatic process, allowing you to create live, monetized blogs with little to no work. Let’s go a little more in depth with this strategy to understand it better and to see what its advantages and disadvantages are.
In general, an autoblog is produced using either the blogger or WordPress blogging platforms. It is about as automated as a blog can be, though you do need to put in work for it. You still need to identify profitable keywords and niches for your blog to be based around, and you are still going to need to make the blog initially- finding and purchasing the domain, designing the blog or installing a template design for it, and hosting the site and uploading it so it’s live. You’ll also need to install and configure the plug ins that will make the whole thing run smoothly. In general, most autobloggers prefer to use the WordPress platform as it is the most powerful blogging platform out there, and it offers the most options for autoblogging.
Finding keywords and creating your blog all work pretty much the exact same way that any other monetized blog setup works. Once everything is up and running fine, you are going to install the automatic plugins that make the whole strategy work. Essentially, these plug ins will troll the internet and find content that is relevant and related to your keywords, and then it is going to post that content for you onto your blog. The plugins do all the work for you. They search through content databases, they identify relevant content according to topics, categories and keywords, and they even create the posts for you- complete with identified titles and bodies.
In general the plug ins scrape this content from the main content websites. Some of the biggest sources of autoblog content are sites that allow you to freely share the content that they post. This includes article directories like EzineArticles, as well as public directories of information like Yahoo Answers, significant forum posts, and associated content.
And that’s the end of your involvement! The best way to monetize an autoblog is to install and optimize Google AdSense for the blog, though you can also include affiliate links and the like into your site design (including, for instance, an author resource box that’s created with a plug in and adds the same resource box to the end of each of your automatically generated posts).But once you’ve chosen and implemented you monetization method and gotten your site up and running, there is nothing left for you to do- except sit back and count the money that it makes you!
