The Easiest WP AutoBlogger Ever, And It's Totally FREE!

by 123 comments
Hey Gang,

I've noticed a trend here in recent weeks on interest in Auto-Blogging.

I'd like to share with you a little known FREE, script I have been testing
out over the past few weeks and have fallen in love with.

This has to be the easiest install ever, you simply upload the file into
your WP Plugins folder and that's it

The script was designed by a Medical Doctor in India by the name of
Satheesh and is called YAAB, (Yet Another Autoblogger):

Yet Another Autoblogger (YAAB) For Wordpress

Comparing to other autoblogger plugins, YAAB has/can

1. Convert each rss item to separate blog entries (MODE : DUPLICATE)

2. Create an automatic blogging carnival in your blog using rss feeds.
Summaries of entries from different blogs will be published in to single
posts. (MODE: CARNIVAL)

3. You can post blog using SMS. Detailed tutorials will be published
soon. (MODE: SMS BLOGGING)

4. You can run a automatic youtube clone website by automatically
embedding youtube videos in your posts. (MODE : YOUTUBE CLONING)

5. Built in cron jobs. No need to use external or servers cron jobs.
(many servers do not allow cron jobs)

6. No need of curl extension in server.

7. No need to install external rss classes like simplepie. Yaab uses
magpie that is built in with wordpress.

8. Interactive interface where you will never get confused.

9. Update alert at plugin dashboard.

10. Free and GPLv3

This script is extremely versatile and easy to use.

If you have WP blogs sitting around collecting digital dust, give this
little gem a whirl, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Enjoy!

Scot

    Looks good but does it work with WP 2.7? Some of the Autoblogger plugins I've seen work only with 2.5 and below.

    And if it doesn't, is there a 2.5 version of WP available to download?

    He just came out with an update, so I'm assuming that it's up to
    date with the latest WP release. (No certain though).

    Hey Miguel,

    In case you still need it, here is the download link for WordPress 2.5:

    Yes it does work on WP2.7

    I've got it on test on one of my sites and it works pretty well.

    Definately an alternative for WP-O-Matic.

    My question is this....

    Can the posts be configured to arrive in Draft mode so that I can preview them before posting? I've used autoblogging tools in the past and my biggest complaint was that stuff in the RSS feed would be posted that I didn't want and I didn't have much control over it.

    Yup

    If it did the replace/relink that WPOM does, I'd switch. Alas, that one key ingredient is vital to my method, so for now, I stick with WPOM.

    However, if they add that feature, I'd change sides in a second. I'm not married to any of the plugins I use or mention. I use the cheapest and easiest combo that will get me where I want to go.

    My question here is how do you consistently get fresh content that isn't directly copied? Is there a plugin for that?
  • Profile picture of the author Scot Standke
    You can add your own 'fresh' content above and beyond
    what these scripts pull in.

    "Duplicate Content" is a myth, IMO.

    My blogs work and get PR so there must be something to it.

    As long as they look nice and provide real value to the end
    user, Google should not have an issue with it.

    The script itself is designed to pull in content via RSS feeds from
    the various sources you pick and choose.

    In a local blog I run, I'll use feeds from my local paper or the local
    university as a few examples.

    You can also copy and paste PLR articles into the blog themselves,
    or...

    You can write a unique article once in a while and post to the blogs.

    As long as you are creating a useful landing spot for your visitors,
    then it will look good in the eyes of the SE's.

    I downloaded this plugin over a week ago and have yet to use. I am using Caffeinated Content for right now, but plan on using this little do-hicky on another blog of mine.

    Hi Satheesh,

    Welcome to the Warrior Forum, I see you found the post

    Great script and the fact that you are continually developing it
    is terrific news.

    I have some suggestions you may want to add if you are interested,
    please PM me when you get a moment.

    I have every plugin known to mankind - free and paid. Yet Another Autoblogger (YAAB) For Wordpress is the cream of the crop - period.

    Another thing....too few people have really investigated Carp, Grouper, (geckotribe) and Yahoo pipes. Let's stop talking about all the popgun plugins out there and get into discussing some real mashups. With a bit of elbow grease, one can collect, collate and massage all kinds of data into a CUSTOM usable user experience.

    As O'Reilly said (perhaps not in this exact context) Data is the next Intel inside.

    Thanks for sharing, is there a tutorial on how to use it for people completely new to this kind of thing?
