Free Auto Blogger / Autoblogger Plugins Using RSS For WordPress Sites

Auto blogging can mean a few closely related but distinct things. 

  • It could be that you have a blog and just want relevant content regularly added but don’t want to have to write it and post it yourself.
  • Or it could be that you have several sites that you want to post the same thing too but only from one place.  Content Syndication is a term I apply n these cases.
  • Finally, you may want to blog about automobiles, this article isn’t for you.

The good news is that this page covers the first two aspects of auto blogging and we’re going to cover how you can accomplish this free.  (Unless you want our help implementing it then it’s free after the setup)

There are more ways that auto blogging can be used and if you have a different scenario you’re welcome to let me know and I’ll see what I can come up with for you.  Pop over to the contact page and share your auto blogging need.

With the two use cases described above you’ll need slightly different processes but you can achieve these and if needed we can do it for you.  

I say process because these are actually a somewhat complicated series of events that might require the use of two or more tools we’ll discuss shortly.

Auto Blogging Use Case 1:

You have a blog and want it to automatically post relevant content that you don’t have to write.   

It’s important to post new content for your site regularly.  I recommend to my clients once a week.  Sites that do this get visited more often by both Google and visitors because they know that something new is likely waiting for them.

It also helps show you are running an active site and the content isn’t outdated.

A Free Plugin For Auto Blogging

CyberSyn (AKA CyberSEO and CyberSEO Lite) doesn’t know I’m writing anything on them and this isn’t a paid endorsement, I use their product on about 100 domains and its worked perfectly for me, it’s a free full text RSS feed to post WordPress plugin available through the WordPress plugin repository.  Most RSS Feed to Post programs don’t work or only do half of the needed process for free.  CyberSyn does it all.

Now I noted multiple names for them, and they have multiple solutions that are great in their own way.  CyberSEO 7 is their latest and greatest paid plugin but they also offer CyberSEO 6 for free which remains a feature rich option.

Install this plugin on your site and find RSS feeds that would compliment your site’s content.  I generally like a varied mix of feeds so I’ll pick 3 or 4 different site’s RSS feeds and add them.  Depending on what works for your case schedule and set the options for the feeds.  

I usually set the clock to check each site once every 5000 to 10000 seconds, thats usually just about or just over once a week.

Now be mindful that you should avoid plagiarism.  It is illegal and you will get a letter from a lawyer at some point asking about his client’s content.  I have before on an image of vegetables. 

Copyright Infringement And Auto Bloggers   

In the case where I got a letter I went to my site, removed the image and responded to the letter honestly.  I noted that the content was from Blog XYZ and it was offered in an RSS feed which I also noted in the post.  

I always note where Autoblogger content originally was printed and I always provide a follow backlink to that content.  

Usually the content site owner is more than happy with this because the more backlinks he/she has the more SEO he/she has and its a way for my site’s readers to discover him.

I don’t worry that my visitor may go to his blog, if they want more articles from that author then I want them to discover him through me.  If he later wants to find more authors he’ll come back to my site.

In the issue where I was altered to the content being copyrighted my response was apparently good enough, they never bothered me again.

CyberSEO or CyberSyn provides the option to always include credit to the original source blog.  

With that said, that fulfills your use case in the first bullet.  It’s also half of what is needed for the second bullet, Content Syndication Network. 

Auto Blogging Use Case 2:

I have a domain that is of little value and I think I got it for 1.99. I turned it into my distribution center. Lets call it example.com.

I then create categories for the types of articles I’ll be posting. So let’s say our categories are News, Farming, SEO, Cooking and Finance.

By making these categories I now have 5 categories or 5 RSS feeds of my own, in addition to the site’s main one.

I also assign tags because RSS feeds can be made to follow a tag. 

SO lets say I make green, blue, red and purple as tag words. Tag all the articles that are alike, and post your newest masterpiece.

Of my 100+ domains I have groups and I’d download CyberSYN and install it, listing the feed it is supposed to post from as my own central blogging site.

https://example.com/tags/blue/feed. or example.com/categories/auto-blogger/rss 

I can add that url to whatever blogs I want and then interweave the categories to create another niche delivery system to the same domains.  It creates a series of pipelines for delivering content. 

There’s hardly a limit to the number of categories and tags you can use.

Once you’ve setup these feeds you can post to News and Blue and that’s who’s going to get that content.  Any site you configured using the first use case at the individual site level.

CyberSYN allows full text extraction, you can credit your sources, and choose other various options.

It is important though to consider that the target site will be crediting your site as its source.  So if this is not original content you need to ensure that credit is added to each site at the central syndicating site.

Test your site to site RSS feed

Post from your main distribution site and wait. You’ve already likely at this time set an automated timed cron job for CyberSYN.

The beauty here is that you can post original content to your main site and dispense it free AND at the same time you can use the plugin on the central site to post content to one central syndicated site that is then reposted to your other blogs on a tag or category level.

Auto Blogged Backlinks

Now with the process in place you have syndicated content, regularly posting and you can add your own content.

You can strip out links from the syndicated content, but I recommend against this because the source content provider is more likely to see value in your reuse if his backlinks are being augmented by your site(s).

I do add my own backlinks to content though using a second plugin.

WPA Auto Linker 

You can define words that if seen in posts are auto linked to your desired target. 

Simply enter the keyword, target url or 

seo autoblogging, https://ultimateseo.org/free-auto-blogger/

You can set these on a site by site basis or you can use WPA Auto Linker to utilize a text file on one of your domains as the source of what words should be linked where.

I usually do both to ensure consistent backlinks from one text file and additionally unique backlinks only done on your site.

What about the fact it’s already published?  Is this a duplicate content issue? 

No, not at all.  First who cares if it is duplicate content.  I have a whole article on this topic of duplicate content and how its only killing your SEO because you’re wasting your time over it.   

You need to understand that the Associated Press is on every news paper site and that duplicate content is “not a pressing issue” according to Google. 

I have a News Aggregator site for Louisville, KY that is supposed to be election and voter specific.  While each individual piece of content may not be unique the sites blending of that content is unique.  The site pulls in press releases from multiple campaign sites and its the only one I know of that allows you to see all of the candidates press releases at one place.

So 99% of the content is posted from somewhere else but it is uniquely all presented in my blog.

Thats a service to the visitor.

Additional Considerations To Auto Blogging Sites

Pick a theme that works well with your auto posted content.  Category pages that do not display an excerpt are wasted.  You likely want about 200 to 300 word excerpts made for each syndicated piece of content.

That builds content that supports the title on the page.  A page of just links to other people’s content isn’t that great of a presentation.

Also be mindful of the images that go along with the auto blogged content.  I prefer to have them added to my own servers for two reasons.

  1. If the source moves the content it wont break the image on my site.
  2. I’m not stealing the source site’s bandwidth. 

The second one is a hot spot and so much so that sites can implement “hot spot protection” that prevents the display of images from their site to be hosted still from their servers but viewable on your site.

IFTTT Loses Gmail Service

Much of the info in this post is from an article on engadget. I became aware of the situation as I was working to build an IFTTT applet that would change my office lights to red if a website went down and I got an email about it from Uptime Robot. That applet can probably still be made but just not using Gmail anymore as a trigger. From Endadget: Google’s push to tighten third-party API access is already going to cost the world Google+, but a change that more of you might notice is coming to IFTTT. The service sent out emails alerting users that their “recipe” scripts involving Gmail triggers and an action that could create a draft will go away as of March 31st. According to Google, the shift is a result of the Project Strobe sweep it announced last October. IFTTT said it worked with Google to keep the integration that will support triggers to Send an email, or to Send Yourself an email, but the API lockdown that’s coming would’ve required too much work to change its services. Otherwise, integrations with Google will still be the same, but anyone relying heavily on the automated scripts may …

I’d build my sites out individually and define a purpose to them and make them fully functional sites and move on.  But no one does that who is running just one site.  You return to the site and you improve it, add content, run updates and make sure it hasn’t been hacked. This continued for 2 or 3 months in 2018 and before I knew it I had a hundred domains.  But I didn’t really…because the oldest sites were usually hacked or outdated plugins would shut off removing functionality.  SSL certs may have expired in any regard there are a lot of things out there ready to shut your site down.
