Comment on WordPress Autoblog Plugins by SEO Gold Coast Services.

I see you do WordPress autoblogs.

After your last comment (the one starting “123 blogs operating on autopilot” I realised we weren’t 100 miles from using similar SEO techniques :-)

I did find a couple of your sites (found your Twitter account) and saw you have a nofollow attribute on your home page link from what I assume is your main site.

Might be an oversight on your part (I still have pages with nofollow dotted around from when Google respected the original reason for nofollow). Using nofollow is a LOT worse than noindex.

I’ve recently started looking into WordPress autoblog plugins, known about auto-blogging for years but most of the software wasn’t very good and autoblogs do tend to be downgraded over time (used to get tens of thousands of visitors a day to Amazon thin affiliate sites which are not unlike autoblogs on autopilot: thin/duplicate content which Google hates).

I’m curious are you offering another WordPress autoblog plugin or only explaining how to use current autoblog plugins effectively?

Did look at one of your autoblog test sites, saw a lot of nofollow links. I guess you don’t agree nofollow deletes link benefit (see the Matt Cutts quote in one of the earlier comments)?

I’ve been playing around with a popular autoblog WordPress plugin (it also uses nofollow affiliate links) and made myself an SEO’d version of the plugin and an edited version of my Talian SEO theme for that autoblog plugin that hides the affiliate links rather than nofollow’s them (all the autoblog plugins I’ve looked at use nofollow on affiliate links).

Been a few years since I put effort into trying to make money from thin content sites, so running new tests on both autoblogs and thin affiliate sites, the latter are slightly older tests (~3 months old) and aren’t doing too bad considering they are thin content and took an hour or two to create each: with 24 thin affiliate sites, made over $150 from AdSense last week and a little less from affiliate sales (roughly $10 per site per week in total). I expect they’ll all be seriously downgraded long term, but for something that takes an hour or two to create it’s easy money ($500 per site per year IF they last a year before the inevitable Google downgrade).

My test autoblogs aren’t very old and taking my time adding the content (well below 10 posts per site per day) so don’t expect results for a few more months at least.
