My Experience with Auto Blog Syndicate

My Experience with Auto Blog SyndicateUpdated:  Feb 28

Jan 31 2010

Purchased Auto Blog Sydicate $37

Ignored Upsell #1 Collection of Sydicated secrets  $197.00  IF you say no they will knock $100 off making it $97.00

I purchased Upsell #2   20 killer “Syndicate Cash System” sites

Ignored Upsell #3 advanced training videos $97.00.  $47 if you say no.

Got the welcome email with login screen URL but no user name or password

I sent email to support

1-Feb ____________________________________

Support requested my click bank receipts so they could get me ny user name and pass word.  I sent them immediately

2-Feb ____________________________________

I received my password and login name

Systems Set Up

– log into the software enter one keyword
– add a few more keywords to the list (1 or 2 your first time)
– click on Review Posts.
– this is the main component of the Auto Blog Syndicate software. This is where you choose your content
– pick one of your keywords from the drop down box and allow plenty of time for the page to load up
– the softawre will AUTOMATICALLY fetch a range of content from various sources, including text and video
– you need to do is pick the articles that you’d like on your site by ticking the box next to them
– when done, click “Add Selected” to add the articles to the queue
– when satisfied with your content, hit “Finish” to go to the review stage and then launch your site.

You are now pushed to get hosting from Host Jester (which for a single domain costs $10.95 month (not cheap) plus the $10.95 to register your domain name

no help on selecting a domain name that would be SEO friendly

no help on selecting a WordPress template that would help your results

once your done with this you go no where, you are left with a bank screen. I tired loading my site but its not yet available.

As for my 20 sites I purchased in the upsell

You get files to upload on a site you need to set up.  Again you need to select a domain name, purchase the domain, get hosting, load wordpress, load the content that was sent to you from Auto Blog Syndicate and I have no idea where the traffic is going to come from.

One hitch … at one point in the poorly written installation documentation you are told to modify a file called “generate-import.bat”.  The direction show it opened in a DOS window (black window with green print). For those too young to know DOS, is short for “Disk Operating System”, it dominated the IBM PC compatible market between 1981 and 1995.

So I send another email to support.

END OF DAY 2 TOTAL MONEY MADE =ZERO

END OF DAY 13 TOTAL MONEY MADE  … wait for it  …..     ZERO

14-Feb    TOTAL MONEY MADE  …..     ZERO

15-Feb    __________________________________

Neither site are getting automatic blog updates, sent in support request.

ABS Sales Page said ” Everyday your blogs get updated with more content.  Search engines quickly rank your blogs because they are updated frequently with relevant content”

Also … both sites offer a list building form that promises a “news letter” or “tips”.   I have asked support where that content is suppose to come from.

SO FAR  A.B.S. appears to be some ready made sites (and not that great).  That is it!

No traffic !  When I inquired about the Targeted Traffic discussed in the sales literature I got this response. “It will take some time for your site to get indexed.”

They force you to use HostJester hosting which I can’t cancel for a refund.

TOTAL MONEY MADE  …..     ZERO

16-Feb    __________________________________

Main site blog content no longer showing on site

No response from support

TOTAL MONEY MADE  …..     ZERO

17-Feb    __________________________________

IF I’M RIGHT AND ALL WE ARE DONG IS PAYING ABS FOR SOME NICHE SITES AND WAITING FOR FREE TRAFFIC THEN WE’LL REQUEST A REFUND. I have plenty of sites already that I work hard to drive traffic to I don’t need to ABS for more of the same.

TOTAL MONEY MADE  …..     ZERO

23-Feb    __________________________________

I have had several emails into Support as well as Sales and Tom Lucas for over a week now with no response.  My sites are not seeing any traffic, my main site has had no “automatic blogs posted”,  and ABS apparently does not provide the News Letter or Tips that the list building portion of the software says will be delivered.

I have until March 3rd before HostJester sends me my monthly bill for $7.95
If I don’t see any income before that I will request a refund.

TOTAL MONEY MADE  …..     wait for it   ….    ZERO, NADA, ZILCH, NOT A RED CENT

23-Feb    __________________________________

After daily requests for support with no answers

and having gotten no traffic to the Auto Blog Syndicate Sites

and having made no money I requested a refund today

BOTTOM LINE IN MY OPINION AUTO BLOG SYNDICATE IS A SCAM
