Setup Autoblog? 101


 
nick8609 Autoblogging can of course be one of the most lucrative strategies to promoting your products, sites, and services.  But, when it comes to the mechanics of how to setup an autoblog, things can get tricky.  To clarify the basics of setting up an autoblog, I will go through what is needed and the easiest steps you can take to go about launching these sites.
Things to Get:
1.)Hosting account
2.)Good Domain
3.)Wordpress
These are the basic resources to start setting up the autoblogging process, and of course things will get more complex later down the line.
It’s also important to get a good hosting company, such as BlueHost or Hostgator that can typically offer a large amount of bandwith and unlimited amount of domains that can run under their shared plans.  These usually run under about $10/month, and that’s important especially if you plan to run hundreds of autoblogs.
A good domain is vital for any site, and this includes autoblogs.  Picking up a name that has a good keyword volume and picking those up in other extensions are good ways of keeping this part cheap and effective.  
After getting your domain and hosting, next its time to setup the autoblog itself.  This is where Wordpress comes in.  Wordpress is so commonly known for blogs that hosting companies like Hostgator even have an automated Wordpress install on the control panel of the hosting account.  But, another way to get Wordpress is to go to Wordpress.org and install the script.  The process is fairly simple since it involves following easy to follow instructions that are given in plain English.  There are plugins in there as well, and these extra plugins could enhance the blog and help search engines find the blog a lot faster.  The site is:  wordpress.org/extend/plugins.
Plugins:
1.)One SEO Pack
2.)XML
3.)Sitemaps and Twitter Poster

After the domain, hosting account, and Wordpress setup is completed, the last basic step is to start importing RSS feeds. Since autoblogging revolves around the concept of automated content updates, the RSS feeds is possibly the most crucial step, and if done wrong will send the entire process crumbling.  A good way to get good RSS feeds is to do it the long way; about 1 hour of research or so.  
The RSS feeds search should begin in Google with the desired targeted keywords in the search.  In contrary to popular opinion the pages that you should look for are the ones furthest back, and not the first two pages, that is because most of the sites in the back have quality content that is frequently updated.
Monetization; the final part to bringing an autoblog to life, is simple. The easiest way of doing this is by placing good converting Google adsense banners on the pages.

In conclusion, this is a brief summary and  ‘how-to’ on setting up an autoblog.  With education and a clear methodology autoblogs can provide an effective avenue of profit.
