Best Wordpress Auto Posters and Auto Feed Stealers?

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

When it comes to auto blogging, their is no auto poster that can beat pure handmade written text, but they can however add content easily and automatically stealing feeds from whatever post you want on the internet.

In fact auto posters can be really helpful if you need to compile information fast from various sources and don’t have the time to do it. Take for instance a coupon site. You could use an auto poster to compile coupons from many different coupons, then manually go in and approve which coupons to post.

Some of the various auto posters out there, that are also free include:
Wp O Matic

WP-Venus

One of the premium auto posters I’ve been using is called MyVideoBlog and automatically takes feeds based on youtube and republishes them including the video. I’ve got my own custom templates designed to make things even more unique. Of course I go through and hand write all the posts myself for even more unique articles.

Making Money Online Without Google or Adsense?

Saturday, January 9th, 2010

Can you make a successful online business without relying on Google or using Adsense to earn profits? The answer is yes, that there are many websites making money online without relying on Google at all. In fact using Google Adsense can be stressful since your income can fluctuate daily with minimal control.

Relying on Google for traffic is a good way for users to come to your site for free, but what happens if Google changes the way it ranks your website and you lose much of your traffic. What would you do?

Though I’ve relied on Google’s search engine and their adsense system for a long time, it’s time to start thinking outside the box. There are people selling products on eBay for money, people offering services ect.

My new years resolution? Start making money with ways outside the Google stronghold!

What To Do When Banned By Google Adsense

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

It is a bad day for anyone who gets banned from Google Adsense. I’ve experienced a partial ban from Google Adsense in the past, and I know people who have gotten the full ban, meaning all their sites getting banned at once. This really takes the fun out of making websites, and it takes a huge hit to anyone’s income.

Steps to Take When Getting Banned by Google Adsense
1. Immediately sign up for other ad companies. Good places to start are infolinks, chitika, and adbrite.
2. Replace the spot where your Google Adsense ads were with ads from other companies. The longer you wait the more revenue you stand to lose.
3. Don’t Panic! Write Adsense and explain, maybe you can get your account back, but it doesn’t always happen.

Life happens and so does getting a fat ban from Google Adsense. Make sure you stay with their terms of service so you can avoid this before it happens!

Importance of Blog Design for Traffic

Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

Though you can design your blog anyway you want, blog traffic can be influenced by the actual design of your blog. Though I haven’t changed the blog design on this blog for over a year, I’ve experimented with other sites such as SampleADay.com and CanadaSamples.com and seen positive results after changing the design to something more professional.

You can win a reader over with your blog content, but to get them to continue reading, you need a blog design that doesn’t look spammy or unprofessional. By adding your own custom design, you can help make your blog design look more original and credible. On SampleADay.com I even added my own Avatar of myself for a more personal effect.

When it comes down to it, free blog templates are cheap, but they make your blog look like everyone else’s. If you are getting decent traffic, pay for a professinal design or at least design it yourself.
