Is Autoblogging Really Dead? That’s a tricky question. If you are interested in SEO you probably have been reading about Google updating their algorithms lately? It’s for real and it will without doubt make life harder for content farms, auto blogs and other SEO attempts where internet marketers are trying to rank in search engines without spending time on producing decent quality content. Autoblogging as a concept has in many ways been abused by affiliate marketers trying to capture clicks on Google and it is the reason for Googles frontal attack. However autoblogging may not be bad in any case and there certainly are valuable autoblogging use cases. The question I hear a lot right now is – will Google “Let” me rank well with autoblogging going forward or do I need to change strategies?
Is Autoblogging dead? Yes I believe it is – in the original form, but is it possible to do well if you build value added blogs that run on Autopilot instead? In my opinion good unique content is what matters – now more than ever!
If you rely on search engine traffic the key to success is to work together with Google. That’s why I have to say that I’m a little skeptic when I hear about value added blogs on Autopilot instead of autoblogging. Why? Because if you do want your sites to Rank in Google on page one, you have to work with Google and give Google what they want – is that possible if your content is a mix of RSS feeds created on autopilot?
I have to say honestly though. I ‘m not really into autoblogging myself because I like unique content, but the idea of putting some of the tasks on autopilot if it’s possible is fine with me. You see as a blogger it can be pretty hard to keep up with the publishing schedule! Please share with us in a comment what your opinion on this is? Is these ideas about value added autoblogging in some way what most bloggers already do anyway when they research new content or is it just an advanced and automated way of borrowing elements others bloggers work?
If you are planning on building a business based on blogging and look into autoblogging as a way to speed up the process and keep you from working late nights I recommend that you carefully consider the consequences, pros and cons etc. I found a serious online training course teaching blogging in general and then in detail how to put some of the tasks on autopilot. I this this training is different from most of the stuff found in this category – more serious and really comprehensive and I’m personally going though all of the material right now and thought I would share some highlights with you.
The Auto Blog Blueprint 3.0 – is this valued autoblogging?
The course has focus on high quality blog content on autopilot and how to monetize it. It is well structured in modules and steps with video lessons and text explaining everything in detail. It’s called The Auto Blog Blueprint 3.0 by Mike Johnson and it’s currently having more than 3000 members. I was surprised to see so many people in the forum – it is a quite popular topic I guess.
Mike has managed to take autoblogging to the next level, as he likes to say in his Sales Copy – and I would not disagree that he did a really good job. Unfortunately it is a rather expensive course offered as a one time price of 97$, but you get over 40 Step by Step Videos and Tutorials and a blueprint showing you how to earn a lot more than you will spend buying the product. What I found when going through Mike’s Course was that it is a well organized out and comprehensive collection of Step by Step tutorials and information on how to build a blogs, automate content delivery, drive traffic etc. Again this is only interesting for you if you believe autoblogging is worth investigating.
Module 1 focus on niche research, choosing domain and hosting, but before you go into action you will have to develop a “Plan of action” and a strategy for your auto blog business. Mike tells you that, while going through the process of niche research, the intent is to not only identify a niche to build a blog with, it is also to identify ways to monetize and considering what kind of content/categories the blog can be built upon. It is a nice module even if you planning on blogging the ordinary way.
In this module Mike focus is on defining your SEO “Plan of action” for your Blog. You will also setup your first auto blog and make it ready for action. This includes blog install, basic settings, base plugins, themes and essential pages on your blog.
Module 3 focus on continuing your SEO “Plan of action” and how to put your strategy into action by adding content and monetization tools to your blogs. The module contains Mikes knowledge about indexing & classification, tagging, advanced plugins, advanced monetization, and of cause auto blogging techniques.
In this module you will focus is on completing the SEO “Plan of action”, and putting the finishing touches on your Strategy. There is at the same time focus on moving on from auto blog Number #1, to auto blog Number #2, and how to get continuous success. You will get introduced to SEO Back linking techniques and get a blueprint on how to get traffic from Social Media sites.
