How to find good Autoblogging Niches

When creating a new autoblog the topic and keywords you choose is one of the most important things which will determine wether it will fail or become successful.  When you choose your niche too broad your autoblog won’t be able to compete with the many normal sites for that topic and thus not rank well in search engines, if on the other hand your topic is too specific your blog might rank well but still get no traffic as barely anyone searches for its keywords.

Because of that you should be looking for…

  • … Keywords that are not very competitive, meaning there are not too many sites out there targeting the keyword and thus it will be easier for your autoblog to rank well for it.
  • … Keywords that at the same time get a good amount of searches regularly. Generally you should be only looking at keywords that get at least a few hundreds searches per day or otherwise it won’t be worth it to build an autoblog around that niche.

Those two are the most important characteristics of a good autoblogging topic, but there are more you should at least consider:

  • Is there a product for the keyword? If there are products for your autoblogging niche you can earn additional revenue by using affiliate programs like eBay, Clickbank and Amazon.
  • Is there enough content? You should check the sources WP Robot gets it content from to see if there is enough available for an autoblog. You can do that by searching for the keyword on Youtube,, Yahoo Answers, etc
  • Do you know something about the topic? Of course, you want to build an autoblog, so this is no requirement, still it can help if you know a little bit about the topic yourself so you can for example sprinkle in some unique content as I have recommended here.

Generally autoblogging keywords which fulfill those requirements are so called long-tail keywords, which simply means multi-phrase seach queries instead of single words. For example “list of low interest credit cards” would be a long-tail keyword while “credit cards” is not. Why to target those probably makes sense to you: Since they are more specific the competition for them is of course much smaller than regular keywords.  Still, there are also many bad long-tail keywords around because the competition for them is either still too high to compete with an autoblog or because their search volume is simply too low.

So now we are back at the original question: How to find good long-tail keywords for autoblogging?

Generally you can find nearly all information you need by searching Google itself or using the free Google AdWords keyword tool. More specifically you should check the following:

  1. Search the AdWords keyword tool for the search volume of your keyword.
  2. Search Google for “allinanchor: keyword“. This shows you how many backlinks there are with exactly “keyword” as anchor text. The less the better of course. What is good depends a little on how much the keyword is searched for but generally I try to aim for keywords with less than a 100,000 results here.
  3. Search Google for “allintitle: keyword“. Same like point 2, just with the page title this time. Again, you want keywords with a small number of results here.

Now, researching all this manually for many different keywords is very time consuming, which is why there are many different programs and services out there automating or simplifying this process. I would recomment you to look into one of these. They are usually not free but if used correctly you will make back your investment quickly.

The software I use for this is called Micro Niche Finder, which does a very good job in my opionion and is not that expensive as well. Basically you can input any general keyword and MNF will then return more specific long-tail keywords related to it and also allow you to show all the metrics I was talking about above.

Don’t use .info Domains for Autoblogs!

With .info domains being available for barely more than a dollar it is tempting to use them for your autoblogs, especially if you are planning to set up many of them. Still, I would always recomment you to go with .com or .net domains, even when autoblogging, because the few more bucks you have to spend will usually always pay back in the long run. Two good reasons:

  • Higher resale value: If you ever plan to sell one of the blogs you build having it on a .com domain will usually get you much more interest than a .info domain. And the difference you will earn from the sale will surely be higher than the $5 the .com domain was costing over the .info!
  • Easier expanding: Say you autoblog becomes so successful you decide at some point to convert it into a “regular” website. If the blog is sitting on a .info domain now you are more or less stuck with it with all the disadvantages that go with it, like less type-in or direct traffic.

Many people also argue that Google is automatically devalueing .info sites because they are often used by spammers but I would not give too much on that argument as it makes no sense for Google to rank sites for their domain extension (i.e. over their content). Still, don`t make the mistake and try to safe money in the wrong place.

Some General Autoblogging Tips

If you want to use WP Robot to create autoblogs here are some general tips and advice you might want to keep in mind. Those are mostly things I discovered myself and stuff based on my experience, no rules set in stone. As always the best advice I can give you to test different things yourself!

  1. Don’t overdo it! Don’t try to create a hugh autoblog about every possible topic with thousands of posts added to it. Generally those autoblog monsters will be marked as spam by Google quickly and not rank for any of their topics/keywords. Instead: Build small and targeted niche autoblogs around a number of popular long tail keywords. I have explained how to find good niches for autoblogging in a separate post.
  2. Add some unique content. Some people might think this defeats the purpose of an autoblog as you have to actually work and write unique content. While this might be party true you have to remember that the number 1 goal of autoblogging is to appear as a valid website of good quality on your topic. Sprinkling unique content into your automatic blogs can help you with that, especially in the eyes of Google. And I am not even necesarily talking about writing full posts about your blog’s topic: Why not add a keyword-rich introductory paragraph to your template? Or a small “about” page? All that won’t take you much time but might improve the results of your autoblog by much.
  3. Add value to your autoposts. This one goes hand in hand with the last point: Try to add value to your autoposts for your visitors wherever you can. An easy example would be a related posts plugin for WordPress but there is much more you could do, for example parsing related RSS feeds, twitter content, etc. Be creative!
  4. Mix as much different content as you can! I just told you about adding value to your autoblogs and aggregating content from different sources about one topic is actually already a form of doing that. This is probably why autoblogs with diverse content are generally doing much better than those that, say, just contain hundreds of Amazon product.
  5. Promote your autoblogs. Many people seem to create automatic weblogs and then expect them to miracuosly become popular. That’s not how it works: Just like any website autoblogs have to be promoted in order to attract visitors.
