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.

getting started

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:

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.

Module 2:

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:

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.

Module 4:

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.

Hi Marc

I think I understand how you are feeling. The thing is that we can spend tons of hours building our online business, but there’s no guaranties that we will succeed. I have learned that there is no easy ways to big pay checks – besides good luck in gambling. You have to follow a good strategy and use the right tools – and keep doing it. I have a quote I like – can’t remember who said it, but anyway it is something like this -” you have to work for a period of time like other people don’t want to – to be able to live like most people can’t for the rest of your life.”

I don’t know “ACC plan”, but I have a membership at ABB 3.0. They have a good and active forum with daily activity and there is a well explained and proven strategy you can follow. They combine unique content with automated content and say that a new blog need to have more unique to survive in Google. Also I think you need more sources than Yahoo Answers and that you need to combine the sources. I bought ABB and kept it after the 60 day guarantee.
Let me know how your doing 😉

Andy,
Thanks for picking up the phone. I am currently following the ACC plan. But being a newbie I am having a hard time getting everything finetuned. Also, I wonder if Yahoo answers has the kind of quality content that I want for my visitors. I am getting a little impatient because except for the Auto content answers and Auto content video I am have trouble with getting some support. I haven’t even monetized my blog yet.
I simply do not have the time to spend writing enough articles and posts to keep a blog alive and fresh. Is Mike’s ABB program about a lot of writing or does he include in the program methods for drip feeding high quality content pulled from elswhere on the web?
I have not yet had a chance to interact on the ABB forum because I am not a member. But I would think about investing some of my precious capital If I could be sure of the level and support and how active the forum is.
I would love to be able to remove some of these trash programs on my hard drive and focus on just one program.

Thanks

Marc

I am sure that auto-blogging in one form or another will be around for a long time. I am experimenting with one myself right now. I do think that value should be a part of the content. The owner of the blog needs to spend some time moderating and answering comments and making sure the quality of the content is there before it is published.
A truly professional auto -blog should be a place where visitors can learn and teach through their comments and the affiliate side should be targeted to the keywords and the purpose of the blog. That combination will make that auto-blog a valuable web presence.
PS: warning if you go and look at my autoblog you will find a real mess. I am still a newbie and trying to follow the ACC plan. I am currently waiting for answers to a couple of problems I am having.
Thanks for the opportunity

Hi Cowboy
Nice to hear your voice here. I totally agree with you – we only want quality content! And I think you’re right about some auto blogs need to be more critical and that it pays back to focus on quality rather than on quantity. What tool are you using ?

Hi stargaterich
Thanks for sharing your good advise on this topic. It’s a interesting strategy to mix auto blog content with unique content which also is the method Mike from ABB 3.0 is using to work together with Google for better ranking. Do you know this new advanced auto blogging tool that has just been released? http://wpturbo.com/117.html

Wow, WPTurbo is a great autoblogging tool indeed!. This piece of software is definite a cut above the rest in terms of features such as multiple sources for content extraction. I like the fact that more sources are added and you can write in to request for new source of contents. I think this tool is going to be a winner and will give the rest of the competing tools a run for its money. Cheers.

I just purchased the software it is relatively easy but I am a newbie to all of this and I was curious what other programs are like and what Auto Blog Blueprint was. I will have to check out your article thank you.

I think Google’s recent algorithm change on duplicate content or rather the publishing of content from another website is in the best interest of users. Having said that , my personal opinion is that I don’t think Google’s action will ever render autoblogging become total useless. The reason being that Goggle’s is not going to ban or remove account of those found to publish duplicate contents. Apart from the impact and effect of page ranking , it is up to the perogative of Internet and online business marketers as to how they want to leverage on autoblogging. The best method that I found is to implement a hybrid strategy where unique contents are intermix with autoblog content.
I have used unique article wizard, autoblog samurai and multipress wordpress plug-in. When these autoblogging tools are utilized together in conjunction with unique contents, the results are significant improvement in traffic ranking as well as increase productivity.

I have to agree people are making money with it and it is not stopping anytime soon. How does this software compare to Autoblog Samurai??

Hi Lisa
Thanks for your comment. The Auto Blog Blueprint is not a auto blog software like Autoblog Samurai or WP Robot, but a blueprint of how to succeed with auto blogs in 2011. I’m not familiar with Autoblog Samurai, but I’ve posted an article about WP Robot some month ago – you should check it out. If you are into starting an auto blog you will need an auto blog software. There are some free options you can chose from, but I’m not really an expert here as I’m not yet working on auto blogs myself. What is your experience?

Lets be honest and admit auto-blogged affiliate sites make the Internet a less happy place.

I have to agree with you on this one Robbie! Unfortunately people are still making money this way… and then it is not going away really soon…
