I did what most of my readers have probably done…
I fell for the lure of the autoblogging sirens.
Autoblogging is a great concept.
You create a blog, you set it up with RSS feeders,
so that whenever some of your top sources of good
info in your niche posts something, your blog gets
new targeted content. You place affiliate links in
the sidebar, you use crosslinker to add links to
the keywords in your content (to your affiliate
links, of course)… and you wait for the commissions
to roll in.
wait some more…
and finally forget about that blog and go on to
What went wrong?
The blog itself is good, but the problem is the
traffic will never come from Google because
your content is already indexed somewhere
Why would someone link to your blog
if you aren’t providing original content?
I have a plan for that…
It isn’t a new plan or anything. It is called
being the curator of your very own blog
museum. You find relevant information
about your niche, and provide that info
on your blog by linking to the sources.
Want to see an example? I will be teaching
about this on Blogging With Micheal this
coming Tuesday, but you can see two
examples of blogs that are doing this:
Best Weight Loss Guide:
Check the top post, as it is using this
Webinars For Profit:
This post uses the results from a few
different searches to bring out the
most recent posts on the topic and
I tie it all together with my own info.
Notice how both of these posts are
not attempts to steal content, but
rather to borrow the credibility of the
sources. This has more unique content,
since I am tying the different posts
together with my own thoughts.
This is the NEW blog formula for
becoming the expert in your niche!
I have some tools to help you with
this, but I will talk about them more
on Tuesday. Until then, have a
great Labor Day Weekend and
catch me on Blogging With Micheal
on Tuesday at 11AM!!
To your blogging success!
