    I picked it up when Andy had his WSO. Great system, easy to set up and nicely automated for your WP site. Highly recommended!

    I don't know why you should pay this much for something you can do for free.

    Using WP plugin called Shorten2Ping you can automatically syndicate your posts to Ping.fm 30+ services.

    When it was sold for $9.97 is was a good buy, but I am not sure it is worth the price today.

    Syndication works if the site your syndicating two have a high PR or at least indexed in Google.

    I see people using WPsyndicator by creating tons of accounts on (vox, livejournal, blogger,etc) -- but if those sites of yours are not indexed yet, there's not much point.

      I purchased the plugin and it is easy to set up, just needs a little time initially to set up the web 2.0 accounts.

      Any news on updates to WP Syndicator with updates for additional sites etc would be really useful to help keep it current. Things do seem to have gone very quiet since all the buzz around the launch.

      Have pm'd both Andy and John.

      This issue is easily remedied with some backlinks and regular post activity. Ive tested web 2.o posting and indexation rates pretty extensively

      This will get you backlinks and indexation. it doesnt happen all by day5. Its pretty minor task getting the web 2 blogs sites indexing and working great.

    It does not work for blogger for me which is HUGE. I get this error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Zend_Loader in /home/site/public_html/wp-content/plugins/tpc-memory-usage/library/Zend/Loader.php on line 31
    If I can't get this resolved I'll probably request a refund and look elsewhere. I emailed the creator but no replies yet. Granted it's only been 12hrs, I'll give him a bit more time before requesting a full refund.

    I just purchased this plugin yesterday for full price ($67) for multiple domain uses. Here's the low down...

    It supports 15 web 2.0 sites (including Twitter). You have to sign up to each site manually if you aren't already a member or don't have another program that does this for you. You could always outsource or take an hour out of your day to sign up. No biggie.

    The plugin installs like any typical plugin and is ready to use after 5 minutes of configuration. Very intuitive and easy to do.

    You'll need to sign up for a bit.ly account if you don't already have one and input your username and API. Again, very simple. you can also configure the excerpt length, auto syndicate, max daily posts and default anchor text. - Which you can also do in each post as you post in the future, the default is just in case you forget to include anchor text.

    The 15 WEB 2.0 sites currently supports:

    Wordpress.com
    Blogger
    Tumblr
    Plurk
    Multiply
    Type Pad
    Live Journal
    Vox
    Friend Feed
    Xanga
    Indenti.ca
    Blewllow
    Bright Kite
    Youare
    Twitter

    However, not all work or are 'dofollow'. Blogger does not work for me and I contacted support. After 24 hours, still no reply and I can't really seem to find an actual support link on the website. Not really sure how this works but it isn't easy getting support so far.

    Vox is no longer. They are closing the doors September 30th. So that scratches that one off the list of 15 web 2.0 sites.

    These are nofollow, so no SEO benefit will be given:
    Plurk - nofollow
    Friendfeed - nofollow
    Youare - nofollow
    Xanga - nofollow

    The plugin also seems to be a bit of memory hog. Not a good thing.

    I use TwitterFeed so I don't need the Twitter function part of this plugin. I like TwitterFeed because it's offsite.

    Oh, I signed up for all the accounts 30-40 hrs before I used the plugin and filled out my profiles on each account so it doesn't look spammy to the webmaster. Well, turns out I was suspended from Blellow after two submissions.

    So all in all, there's really only like seven WEB 2.0 sites that are useful. But it's still nice getting the link out there and I'm sure it'll give a little bit more of a boost after the WEB 2.0 sites get indexed and start gaining some authority. I'll need to link build the useful seven WEB 2.0 sites to help get them more strength. Is the plugin worth $67? I don't know... I think it's overpriced for what you actually get.

    Here's the summary break down:

    • Support - 1 out of 10 (poor) so far
    • Ease of Use - 8 out of 10
    • Functionality - 5 out of 10 (half the web 2.0 sites either don't work, won't work in the future or are nofollow)
    • Value - 6 out of 10 (bit overpriced IMO)
    • Cons - Support, half the WEB 2.0 sites are useless, overpriced, memory hog
    • Pros - Easy to use, after it's all setup it does all the work behind the scenes, despite of only seven useful WEB 2.0 sites it'll still help build backlinks
    • End thought - Shop around for something cheaper... I'm sure there's plugins out there that can be had free or cheap. maybe Incansoft has something?

    Hope you find this review helpful.

    Doesn't this just do what Posterous does for free?

      I'm not sure. It appears Posterous crossposts while this plugin syndicates directly.

      I now have this plugin working on 3 domains using 2 different sets of WEB 2.0 accounts. I am worried that if I syndicate too much on one WEB 2.0 account I will get suspended for spamming.

      One of my autoblogs get over 30 posts per day which is syndicating other blogs content (Yes I have permission from the blog owners) and so far I have not been suspended. Except by Blellow when I submitted my first 2 posts.

      I wonder if Incansoft has something relatively similar...?

    Actually what they do is to build link to their website so their website will get more traffic. But do you know that all of those ways to increase traffic can be done by this plugin

    But error generated is more by using WP-syndicator

    Definitely not worth the money.

    Like someone already pointed out, microblogs are nofollow links except for brightkie, blogger is not working, Vox is closed although you can transfer an existing blog to typepad free.

    So you only get dofollow links for wordpress, tumblr, multiply, livejournal, typepad and brightkite.

      Update:

      After a few days of using this plugin, Wordpress, Live Journal, Type Pad and Xanga all stopped working after 8 successful submissions. If you are an owner of this software, you may want to check to see if yours are working too.

      So only what.... that's like 3 microblogs working for me now? Ugh! I want a refund.

      I sent three more emails to support the past 24 hours and still no help. I wonder if this plugin was abandoned?
