tying it all together and presenting costs of what setting up an automated blog business
Automated blog content and Wordpress autoblog plugin tools are a whole new world, one that
probably has more questions than answers right now. But the fact is, very few internet
marketers are currently using these automated blog tools. As with any new te chnology, those
that get out early will have a head start on everyone else.
The following is an example of why I am so excited about setting up automated niche blogs.
Sometimes when I am doing keyword research – especially if I am drilling down as low as
possible – I often stumble across a stray keyword somehow related to the original keyword
search. This has happened more than a few times, and I always that it would be a keyword to
build a niche blog around.
But many times it’s in a niche that I do not have any personal knowledge which makes it quite
useless to me, because there is no way I can generate enough content around the keyword
(and its derivatives) to keep new and fresh content on a blog. But with an Wordpress
automated blog plugin that automatically generates content, I now am able to start a blog on
any subject that I want. I am no longer limited to just those subjects I have intitmate knowledge
of, but it can be anything. There will be many internet marketers that use these automated blog
tools to exploit micro niches within niches. All it takes is an automated tool and some good
keywords, and you can start a blog in any niche that you think will be profitable.
Now over the past years, there have been ways to automatically populate content in blogs, but
there was one major problem. Typically this content was provided via an an RSS feed from
another source. To the reader of the blog, the content becauewas keyword relevant and in
most cases presented the reader with an interesting and informed read. They may have
enjoyed the site enough to even bookmark it and come back again.
From a technical perspective, the content pages with the RSS feed typically would use one of
two methods to present the content to the page:
sources for fresh RSS content with java script feeds. Coding is very easy and all you need
is a small piece of code inserted into your your website or blog. The content was
presented from the feed each time the page was loaded.
to the search engines. So even though the content might be perfectly suited for the
targeted search term, the search engines cannot determine how to optimize your page
for that keyword phrase. The bottom line is that if you are depending on the search
engines for your traffic, every page of content on your site must be “readable” by the
search engines. Otherwise you will have a very difficult time getting ranked.
php – php is another method of inserting RSS feeds on your website or blog, but this is a
little more difficult. First, very few content sources make their content available in php
format. So if you want to use php, you have to purchase another software tool such as
RSS Ground, to convert rss feeds into php. The tools such as RSS Ground worked fine
and many marketers use a similar tool to bring content into their static web sites. The
search engines read php code as regular html, meaning that the search engines can
index your page based on the content in the article.
But the problem is, Wordpress and other blogs do not allow php content in blog posts.
So without php, the search engines cannot read the content. That removed the
possibility of using RSS as a method to populate content in an automated blog.
That’s where the new generation of automated blog tools provide their unique value. Over the
next 6 days we will share more information with you and describe how Wordpress autoblog
plugin tools will change the way you look at blogging in the niche markets.
From here you can decied to a) wait for the email series which will start tomorrow, or b) go
ahead and dig in to the information right now. All the lessons are listed below and the
information is identical to what you would receive in the emails. But be sure that you also read
the emails because there is other new and updated information that may be included.

Day 1: Automated Blog Tool Options
The Wordpress autoblog plugin market is getting ready burst wide open. There are already
several automated blog tool options to choose from and the concept is gaining steam. In this
lesson, we will do a high level review of the various options that are available.
Just as with any other niche tool that you consider, there is a wide range of options when you
start considering different automated blog tools. But there are some common denominators of
the types of things that you need to consider as you are considering which automated blog tool
is best for you. The following are a list of features that I feel are the most important:
keyword relevant content sources – The results you get from your Wordpress autoblog
plugin tool will only be as good as the sources that you can pull keyword relevant
content from. So make sure the tool you decide to purchase not only provides content
from multiple sources, but that those sources provide enough reliable content to trust.
In other words, the better automated blog tool solutions provide content from
reputable article submission directories and Web 2.0 sites like Yahoo Answers, Flickr,
YouTube, etc. The whole concept of the automated blog tool is to pull targeted keyword
content from multiple sources to satisfy both the search engines and your visitor.
monetization capabilitities – I know this should go without saying, but one of the goals
of an autoamted blog is to monetize your blog on autopilot. But believe it or not, some
of the automated blog tools do not provide monetization capability and provide article
or RSS content only. In some niches that strategy might work well. But a better solution
is to use an automated blog tool that also builds monetization content targeted at your
keyword from multiple sources such as eBay, Amazon, Clickbank, Google Adsense and
others. The value of having targeted keyword products to offer on your website means
that your visitors will find specific products for the exact keyword term they used in
their search to find your blog. That is pretty powerful.
control over content – Some automated blog tools simply just dump the data into your
blog and you have very little control of how the page ends up looking when the
automated post is made. You will want control over what content to provide on your
automated pages, the order that the content is laid out, and other options that make
your blog look professional. Remember, the more content sources that use in your
automated blog the better, because the more content mixed with other content, and
the better chances you will have that the search engines will view your content as
no restrictions on blog templates – You do not want to choose a product that provides
a pre-defined set of blog templates or formats that you have to use. First, you will be
restricted on how to use your content and second, you will have a blog that looks just
like everyone else’s that uses this same tool.
keyword support – The automated blog solution you choose needs to have strong
support for how it handles input of targeted keywords. You will want to make sure that
it not only handles loading single keywords one at a time, but also that it will handle
bulk loading of keywords. The best Wordpress auto plugin tools allow for loading up to
1000 keywords in bulk which means that you could post new content every day for
years into the future.
new post scheduling – Make sure you have flexibility to schedule how often you wish to
post new content for each keyword. The better solutions provide multiple options
around this like every ‘X’ days, every ‘X’ hours, between the hours of ‘X’ and ‘Y’, etc.
Having the ability to manage the content posting for your keywords will make the blogs
look normal to the search engines instead of posting exactly at the same time every day.
search engine friendly – And last, but certainly not least, make sure the automated blog
solution you select handles the content as pure html. In other words, make sure they
don’t insert the content inside of scripts or other methods that make the content
invisible to the search engines. The goal or the end result of the automated blog is for
the “html” code of the blog to look just like it would if was written by hand. In other
words, if the search engines can read your page content, they can then index your page
for your targeted keywords. Likewise, if the search engines cannot read your page
content, you will have much more difficulty in getting a high rank position.
Tomorrow we will take a closer look at the costs of some of these tools and make our
recommendation on what we consider to be the best automated blog tool to put your business
Day 2: Content Is King
The old adage in website traffic was that “content is king”. That sounds rather simple, but it
really is one of the things that separates the high traffic websites from the lower traffic sites.
Content is why people visit a certain website, content is what the search engines rank a website
for, and the more content you have the more often that the search engines and visitors will
come back for more.
That old adage is still true today, and blogs that consistently post new content to address
popular niche markets do well. That’s where automated blog tools are great for niche markets
and can help you better position your blog for the niche market you want to target.
Depending on the automated blog solution you select, most of these tools pull content from
multiple sources. This is important for several reasons that we will discuss in detail below. You
want to make sure that the solution you select has several options including article directories,
RSS feeds, Web 2.0 sites, etc., so that you can have an abundance of content to select from that
you want into include in your blog.
For example, do you want an automated blog that just pulls in articles for your content, or do
you also want to include other information such as videos, pictures, content from Web 2.0 sites
and more. Remember, the more content you include in your automated blogs the more value
you are providing to your visitors who found your blog because they searched on a specific
term. So offering them information from multiple sources that support the keyword they
entered makes it appear that your blog article was written just for them. And you didn’t even
have to write it!
If I am a golfer looking for used golf clubs, I might do a search for Callaway X14 irons. When the
search engines return their results, I expect to find a website that provides information on
Callaway X14 irons. I don’t want to see a page about Ping putters, or Titleist wedges, I want to
see a page that provides me with information on exactly what I am searching for – Callaway X14
That’s the beauty of an automated blog, you can taylor a blog post to very specific keywords,
and the Wordpress autoblog plugin pulls content from various content sources that support
that targeted keyword. So in the above example, an automated blog might build a post for
Callaway X14 irons with the following content:
an article that talks about why someone likes their X14 irons
a YouTube video that provides some useful information about Callaway X14 irons
an eBay listing of Callaway X14 irons that are currently listed for sale
a Yahoo Answers resource box that provides the question and answers for something
that was asked related to Callaway X14 irons
listings from Amazon for products that are for sales related to the keyword
Clickbank products that are for sale related to the keyword
That’s a significant amount of content considering all you did was enter some targeted
keywords. From there, the automated blog tool will churn out content on the schedule you set
until you tell it to stop.
The good news about these Wordpress autoblog plugin tools is that they can churn out lots of
content on autopilot. Even better news is that most of them generate the keyword relevant
content and render it in html, which means that the page code looks just as it would if were
developed by hand allowing the search engines to index the content of the page.
This point cannot be overemphasized. If you are considering any automated blog tool, the
starting point of your decision process is how does the page code get presented. I don’t care if a
product has the slickest interface, generates the most content from the most sources and is
heads above all the competitors in everything it does. But if it does not produce html code that
a) is readable by the search engines, and b) is generated in a way that it looks natural to the
search engines, nothing else matters.
The key to success in building automated blogs is automatically generating content that can be
indexed by the search engines. If you follow our keyword evaluation and selection process (20-
15-50 rule) you will be basing your automated blog on a list of keyword phrases that get a
certain level of traffic with a certain level of competition. The goal is to find a group of under
utilized keywords that you can target. Because they are under utilized you should have a
relatively easy job of getting high ranking for these keywords, and you should be able to drive
traffic from the search engines.
Another point to consider in regard to the search engines is duplicate content. Although you
will be pulling content from other sources that has already been indexed on other pages,
because you will be building pages of other content mashed together, none of yourpages will
have the exact same content that the original pages have. For example, the article directory
that the article is pulled from will not have the Amazon ads, the eBay ads, the Clickbank ads,
the Yahoo Answers information, etc. It is almost mathematically impossible that another page
anywhere else on the internet could have the same combination of content that is
automatically generated by an autoblogging tool. That’s why including as much content as
possible on a page is desired, as it just makes it that more difficult to get caught in a duplicate
The whole point of using a Wordpress autoblog plugin for automated blogs is to build a blog on
autopilot for the niches that you want to target. These niche blogs should be “set and go”,
requiring very little effort to market and promote. If you are careful in the selection of your
targeted keywords and make sure that they meet the 20-15-50 rule, your automated blog will
be highly optimized for those targeted keywords. It would almost be impossible for the search
engines to not recognize your blog for the keywords that you are targeting because of the
volume of content that you will be able to generate.
I know this all sounds too good to be true, but it’s really simple. Before you begin setting up the
automated blog you will do your keyword research for the niche market you are targeting.
During this process you generate 15+ keywords that each get 20-150 searches per day, but are
under utilized and do not have much competition. These are the keywords that you will use to
generate your automated blog.
Depending on the niche you choose, you may end up with more or less targeted keywords, but
either way you will be automatically generating content on a consistent basis that is specifically
targeted at those specific keywords. Over time the search engines will drive your blog up in the
rankings because it continually sees fresh new content around the keyword phrases you have
Day 3: Monetizing Your Automated Blog
One of the beautiful things about automated blog tools is not just the the ability to
automatically insert content. That’s obviously very important because that is probably the
primary reason you are interested in these tools. You either do not have the time, or you do not
have the depth of knowledge to post new blog content on a consistent basis in the niche you
want to target.
Most experts say that you need to post new content at least 3-4 times per week to have the
search engines crawling your site. To put it another way, if the search engines crawl your site
and do not see any new content they may start waiting longer in between crawls. What this
means is that it will take longer for your pages to be indexed, but there’s also another
underlying problem. If the search engines do not view your site important enough to not crawl
more than every week or so, how are they ever going to view your site important enough to
give you good page ranking?
But the other wonderful thing about automated blogs is the ability to post “monetization”
content that is also keyword relevant. In other words, if your niche is in “dog training”, you
want to sell items that are targeted at people looking for dog training products. If one of your
targeted keywords that you want to create posts on is “dog training collars”, you want to have
dog training collars to sell on your page.
Now let’s be reasonable and set expectations right from the start. There may be some niches or
some products when you get down to a granular level that these automated tools just will not
find the exact product. For example if your keyword was “red dog training collars”, there may
or may not be products that have that keyword in their description. But in many cases, these
tools will return products that very closely match the targeted keyword.
So what types of monetization content should you be looking for in an automated blog tool?
The following is a summary of what most of the current products offer, but none of the tools I
researched provided all of these. But this list sort of represents the average of what
monetization methods should be present:
In reality, the list of how you could possibly monetize an automated blog is endless. In the
future it is easy to imagine that any affiliate program would offer a web service where all you
need is an API ID similar to Flickr or Yahoo Answers. In this example, it might be possible one
day to pull monetization content in from a large number of affiliate sources.
The following are examples of some of the other affiliate programs I would like to see
supported by Wordpress autoblog plugin tools which would take the concept of monetizing
automated blogs even further:
Commission Junction, Linkshare and other large affiliate sites
Paydotcom, RegNow and other similar affiliate programs for electronic distribution of
software, ebooks, etc.
Google Affiliate and other similarly large affiliate programs
CPA companies and other cost per click affiliate sites
… the list is endless, and with today’s technology it should be as easy plugging in an
The impact of providing products for sale that are keyword relevant for a search that leads to
your website will bring great value to your visitor. Not only will the visitor be pleased that they
found a website that provides the content they want, but they will also be presented with
products that are similarly related to their search term. This is very powerful and in many cases
the impulse of doing a search and finding a page that was targeted precisely for that search will
lead to a sale right on the spot.
One thing some people tend to overlook when considering how to monetize an automated
blog, is that you can still monetize your blog the same way as you always did before. Because
most of the automated blog tools allow you to choose the Wordpress theme you want to use,
you will still have complete control on the type of content that you can place in the sidebar
widgets or other places in your blog that you can monetize.
For example, on my automated blogs I continue to use ads from other affiliate programs to
complement the automatic content that is being generated. So in my previous golf example, if
my keyword is Callaway X14 irons, I could still place other ads in my sidebar widgets for
golfsmith.com, or golfballs.com or any other relevant affiliate products that complement the
A big part of why you want a monetization module in your blog is to obviously find a way to
earn money from your blog. But you also need to consider that mixing in the monetization
content from eBay, Amazon, Clickbank and other affiliate sites, along with the content from
articles, Yahoo Answers, etc., provides a unique page that the search engines will index as
So besides making money, the monetization content helps generate the fresh, new and unique
content that keeps my blog ranked high for the keywords I want to target. And all I have to do is
find those keywords and insert them into my automated blog tool.
Day 4: The 20-15-50 Rule For Keywords
So here we are, arguably the most most important and strategic element of building your
automated blog empire – identifying your targeted keywords. Why is this so important? Well
there are any number of reasons, some of which we will address in this article. But the key
thing to remember is that these are the keywords that your automated tool will build content
around. Whether it’s five words, or fifty words, they represent the content that the automated
blog tools will generate.
There are several elements to consider when selecting your targeted keywords:
how relevant are they to the niche you want to target
how competitive are they and how hard it will be to get page one ranking
how much content is available from article and RSS sources that you can pull from
what are the monetization options for your blog
To me, finding keyword phrases to target for my niche websites is probably the most fun part of
the business. I guess the reason I like it so much is I love figuring out how other people use the
search engines when they do searches. I am on a continual quest to learn how to “beat” the
search engines by finding the keyword phrases that yield good traffic but are not very
competitive. Understanding how the search engines work and how people interact with them
will certainly improve your chances to succeed in search engine marketing.
It’s time for a disclaimer. I am writing this automated blog primer with the assumption that
everyone who moves forward will be using Market Samurai as your keyword generation tool. If
you do not have this product, I highly recommend that you at least try out the 12-day Market
Samurai free trial so you can see firsthand why it is loved by so many people. It is well worth
the $97 that you will pay for the full product.
But back to the automated blog and how you should approach your keyword research. Market
Samurai keyword research allows you to start with a single keyword phrase and start your
search. Each search brings back around 200 items from the Google search database and you
can filter out keywords that you don’t want to track, add other keywords that you want to
include, and define positive / negative keywords.
So as you are considering a niche market to pursue, you might enter a general keyword phrase
like “dog training”. Market Samurai will then present you a list of roughly 200 keyword phrases
that closely match the “dog training” keyword and you can start the process of finding the best
keyword phrases for your blog.
After you have finished using Market Samurai to generate the keywords through the search
function, you can now run the analyze function to get detailed data about your targeted
keywords. The analyze keyword function brings back detailed data about each keyword,
including the following:
organic info – includes number of total searches, projected number of clicks, trends and
adwords data – includes adwords traffic, click through rate, and cost per click
competition – provides data on how many websites have that keyword, how many have
the keyword in the title tag, and cost per click competition info
commerciality – I have never seen this type of information before, but it measures the
commerciality of the keyword – the value of the adword and the value of having #1
position in Google
I normally go through the keyword list at this point and start filtering out keywords that don’t
meet a minimum traffic level, or maybe to remove those that have too high a competition from
other web pages. The goal at this point is to narrow the list and identify the best key word
phrases to pursue. And especially if I am trying to dive down into a niche I start to explore this
initial keyword phrase as far as I go.
And this is where it gets really exciting. Market Samurai provides the ability to drill down on any
keyword and start the process over again. So after it goes out to Google and returns the initial
200 keyword, you can click on one of the keywords to drill down further. So many times I will
start with a single keyword and within an hour I might have identified a list of really good,
competitive (meaning I can get good page ranking) keywords that I then start to target.
So what is the definition of a good keyword phrase? I apply something called the 20-15-50 rule
which is a formula that I apply to make my final keyword selection. This 20-15-50 rule typically
provides me with more keywords than I can use. Here is what each of those numbers mean:
20 – I am looking for keywords that have a minimum of 20 keyword searches a day. Now
obviously, I want keywords that get a lot more than 20, but that is the low threshold
that I set – nothing less than 20 searches per day makes my short list of keywords to
15 – This is a phrase-to-broad ratio (PBR) which is a metric provided by Market Samurai
that identifies how often that keyword is searched. For example, it measures how many
times someone might search for “red dog training collars” vs. “dog training collars red”.
The impact is that if the PBR gets much lower than 15 the keyword may be a great
keyword, but given that it is not searched in that word order, it could impact the overall
effectiveness of that keyword.
50 – This number represents how much competition there is for the keyword and the 50
represents that filter out any keyword that has more than 50,000 competing pages.
Now if you know anything about search engines, this is a very, very low number for
search competition. The intent is to target a keyword that does not have a lot of
Now you might wonder how many keywords you can find using this method. In a recent search
project, I started off with women’s shoes as my primary keyword, and about four hours later, I
had almost 100 keywords that I would classify as good, if not great keywords.
So imagine if you find 50 keywords that get on average 40 searches per day that you can get
high ranking for. In fact, some of these will even be easy to get #1 position, because many times
you will find very good keywords that do not have any page optimized for that keyword phrase.
These keywords are the golden nuggets that you can target to optimize to start driving traffic to
As your site gets more pages indexed and ranked, you can start going after more competitive
keywords. So maybe you move the numbers up to 50-15-100 to represent minimum of 50
searches per day, 15% PBR and 100,000 competitive sites. This will open up a whole new list of
words that you can then target.
The two key points to remember from this lesson are:
keywords are the key, single, most important aspect of internet marketing, and
especially if you are using automated blog tools
you need a good keyword tool like Market Samurai to help you select your keywords, or
you have very little chance of success
In this whole series of lessons, there are only two products that you will hear me say that need
to purchase for starting automated blogs. The first is the automated blog tool that we have
talked about so far, which I will provide more information on various options and offer my
opinion on which tool I think is best. The second is a good keyword tool and Market Samurai is
simply the best.
I’ve often said, internet marketing is not hard, but you have to work hard to be successful. You
also have to work smart, and in this lesson I wanted to point out the importance of a good
keyword strategy and inform you that Market Samurai is very important to your success.
Next lesson we will start discussing what it’s like under the cover of an automated blog solution
and how you go about getting it set up.
Day 5: Wordpress Autoblog Plugin Selection
Today is the day that you actually take your first steps in implementing a network of automated
blogs. If you have made it through the lessons this far, it is safe to assume that you must be
interested in setting up multiple niche market blogs with the automated content populated by
a Wordpress autoblog plugin.
In previous lessons we discussed the value of these automated blog tools and how they will
allow you to extend your reach by setting up blogs that automatically get updated with content
on a consistent basis. As with any other technology you buy, there are a wide range of options
to select from when you are looking at for an automated blog tool.
There is also a wide discrepancy in functionality that these products provide. I looked high and
low for automated blog tools which provided a set of functionality that I predefined, and
believe that I have been able to find every possible automated blog tool that exists today. The
criteria that I wanted was:
multiple content sources including article content and RSS feeds
monetization content from multiple sources
content that is search engine friendly and readable as standard html
ability to mix and match content within a single blog post
ability to mix and match monetization sources in one blog
ability to set different schedules for content to be generated for each one of the
ability to randomize the timing of the posts on the scheduled day so that it leaves a
small footprint for the search engines to see a pattern of automated content being
easy to use and require very little effort to get started
an unlimited license to use on multiple blogs
not restricted to any pre-defined Wordpress templates so I can use niche market
not restricted on other Wordpress plugins that I could use in the blog
a forum of users to lean on for support, and a support team that responds to issues
So it was with this list of criteria that I started my search. Now the reason I did such an
extensive search is because I was looking for an automated blog platform for my own business.
I had played around with niche markets for several years using some eBay tools which have
been profitable from the very beginning. I had been thinking about other niches that I wanted
to target but I wanted something other than eBay content. So I started looking to see what type
of new tools were available and did an extensive search on every angle possible to find these
After several days of extensive searching, I was actually quite pleased with the number of tools
that I found. The following is a list of several automated blog options that I feel are worth
consideration, but there are probably other tools also available, so my apologies if I missed any
that should have been included. I have also listed what I perceive to be the strengths and
weaknesses of each, although I have more knowledge about some of them than I do the others:
WP Mage – This is clearly the cadillac of the group, but you better have deep pockets
and be willing to make a financial investment of well over $1000. I have not ever used
this product but what I have been able to discover through my research is that it
appears to be a very full featured product. However, in the WP Mage training videos
that I discovered during my research, it also appears that WP Mage is quite complicated
to use because of the many, many options that you have to consider. For me, I just
could not afford to the take the chance with $1000+ to see if it might work. And the
other important thing to consider, is that WP Mage is currently closed to new members.
So even if I wanted to spend my money with them, it appears that I could not join.
Autoblogged – This solution was a very close second for me because I like some of their
content options. But unfortunately it does not offer any automated monetization
features. Since monetization is such a critical aspect of an automated blog, there is no
way I could give up that capability. It’s too bad, and I would hope they add monetization
features in the future because the rest of their solution is very nice.
PowerAutoblog Cash Generator – This product looks very good from the sales page, but
there are just too many things I could not verify. One of my biggest concerns is how this
solution handles the content – in other words, is it readable by the search engines. Also,
the other concern was I could not determine where they pull their article content from –
and as a reminder, an automated blog tool is only as good as the content it provides. In
the end, there were just too many questions even though the price is lower than other
Wordpress Autoblogger – This product also looks good, but I could say the same thing as
I did about PowerAutoBlog above. There were just too many unknowns, and there
doesn’t seem to be a community of users that I could find. Also, this one point scared
me off – they provide a set of pre-defined templates with pre-installed plugins. While
this approach may be good for the very beginner, I did not want an autoblog solution
that I could not have control over the look and feel, the plugins, etc.
WP Robot – I saved this one until the last for a reason – this is the Wordpress autoblog
plugin tool I decided to purchase as my automated blog tool. This product is very early
in its development cycle yet and admittedly is still a little rough around the edges. But
WP Robot has a couple of things going for it that I think will prove out to be the winner
in this space:
1. A very attractive price point that is based on which modules you want to
purchase. They even have a free module that offers basic functionality. I decide d
to buy the “full elite” version because I want to have as much automated
content as possible. If you purchase all modules, the total price is just $165 one
time and this price provides an unlimited license to use on as many blogs as you
2. WP Robot presents the content in pure html, meaning that the pages look just
like they would if you had hand coded and wrote the content yourself. This
provides the capability for the search engines to crawl your site and treat it as
unique content. I cannot over emphasize how important this is to your long term
success as an automated blogger.
In the first few days of owning WP Robot, I set up a couple of new blogs, and added the
plugin to a couple of existing blogs that I was struggling to write content. On a separate
news blog that I have, I set up WP Robot to post hourly updates from several news
sources through RSS feeds. I am already seeing better traffic results because my blog
has more new, fresh and original content that my visitors can find through the search
I realize that internet marketers get deluged daily with “can’t miss” offers, or products that will
make you a gazillion dollars on autopilot. I’m not making those claims because I don’t know
what niche you plan on pursuing. But I can tell you without a doubt that if you are looking for
an automated blog tool that populates keyword relevant article and monetization content, WP
Robot is a product you should look at more closely. I believe the people that jump on this
product early will be able to dominate whatever niche they want to target.
Day 6: Tying It All Togther
OK, you have made it to the last day of the lesson. I hope you have found this information to be
useful and that you have found some things that you can use in the future.
In today’s lesson I want to tie everything together and leave you with a list of what you need to
get started, and provide some information on other resource tools that are available.
The following list describes exactly what you need to get started. If you are already in the
internet marketing business you more than likely already have #1 and #2, and maybe even #3.
1. domain name – If you don’t already have a domain name, you can purchase one at
GoDaddy.com, the best place on the internet to purchase your domain names. You can
purchase a domain name for $10.95 per year.
2. hosting account – You will also need a hosting account, one of the favorite hosting
providers for internet marketers is Host Gator. You can get a shared hosting account for
as low as $4.95 per month.
3. keyword generator tool – Some of you have probably already invested in a keyword
tool, and maybe some of you are using free tools. But without a doubt, the most
important tool you need to be successful in internet marketing – and especially to be
successful with automated blogs – is a good keyword generator tool. Our favorite –
HANDS DOWN and there’s not even a close second – is Market Samurai. Please refer to
