    Exclamation Your Top Moneymaking Site - Autopilot or Manual?
    Even if you base your sites on datafeed and put your sites on autopilot, you still have to make them unique to make them your moneymaking sites. So you have 2 choices - either add that uniqueness on autopilot or do it manually? Which works for you

    1. Autopilot type - with unique value added on autopilot too

    2. Manual type - where you have to keep on adding something unique manually to make it stand out from the rest.

    So what is your top moneymaking site type? Just your number one site which makes you the most money[img]images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't do anything on autopilot.
    How can I achieve a unique feel on autopilot?

    I have an automated solution, but it certainly wasn't easy to develop. I like to put my uniqueness in my code by offering mechanisms that no other site offers. Google uses an automated solution, and it works so well that they've succeeded immensely. So you can go either way depending on your strong points.

    I also want to add that there is no true autopilot. Even when you use automation you still need to maintain your code and ensure everything is operating properly. And when customers contact you, you need to be able to help them. You really won't do well if you don't at least maintain your sites.

    You are obviously at a level where you code very well.

    Some of us are newbies at coding PHP etc...

    So, all votes indicate that I'll have to put in a lot of hours to add value to the sites.
    Thanks everyone for the votes

    Autopilot all the way. I have sites that integrate dozens of datafeeds and update themselves while I sleep
    They perform a routine that makes the description text unique and can even be set to change the css file to change the look and feel of the site each day if I want.
    For several months now I have had a programmer on my staff and that is proving to be a great investment.

    Is it an either or proposition? We have a lot of our site on autopilot but add stuff, too.

    Add Uniqueness then upload = AutoPilot for several weeks...
    Then
    Update adding more Uniqueness = AutoPilot for several more weeks...

    REPEAT....REPEAT....REPEAT....REPEAT....REPEAT....

    I agree with SNIB.. nothing is ever "REALLY" on autopilot.... it just seems that way after several weeks of doing nothing to a site...
