Using WordPress autoblog plugins used to be a truly easy way to generate some online income easily and fast. However recently search engines like Google made serious steps against these auto blogs. Nowadays it is not easy to get good ranks for shorter keywords, although I believe that optimizing autopilot websites for long tail keywords can be still effective and much easier than writing long posts.
On top of that, these sorts of autopost plugins are getting better and better. I mean, they can get content from much more resources, the generated posts are unique, and there are many extra solutions that help to get better results.
Last, but not least beside search engines, there are many other free ways to get targeted traffic such as setting a Facebook page or group, Twitter or social bookmarking. So autoblogging still works if you do it on the right way.
On the other hand, there are many other ways to use autoblog plugins besides building niche websites or sites for PPC ads. Here, I would like to show you some alternative ways to use them.
Typically, if we have an unused domain, we park it on our hosting account or via domain parking services that usually give just half of the income. Setting up a blog on that domain instead of parking can be much more profitable since many products can be promoted and the whole thing is set and forget. I think using a WordPress autoblog plugin for an unused domain is the best solution.
Using for Link Building
If you have an automated website with relevant content to your main website you can add anchor text links pointing to your main website, money making website. Or you can even syndicate your blog posts. Though, these may be not the most powerful links, but can help better ranks in search engines. To get the most from this technique use private domain for your autoblog and the it must be on a different IP.
This way you can set up your own blog network with 10 – 15 or more sites easily that are relevant to your main website.
Sell Affiliate Products
Since Google does not like affiliate marketing websites, it is worth considering to set up an autoblog promoting only affiliate products and another blog having well-written, optimized, unique and very informative posts.
The second “optimized blog” will contain posts that are loved by search engines and gets great amount of free, targeted traffic and contains links pointing to the automated website with thousands of related products. Since the “optimized blog” does not contain any affiliate links, it will be certainly SEO friendly. So simply we have a blog to get targeted visitors and another website where they can get products they are really interested in. This may be a hard and lengthy task, but I think it is effective. Mainly, the harder work is to create the optimized site since the autoblog with even thousands of relevant products can be set up in short time.
All in all, there are many alternatives to use WordPress autoblog plugins for SEO and internet marketing purposes.
