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).

      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.

    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.

    Thanks for the answers, I will download the plugin and try it out

      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.

    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.

    Satheesh - thanks for clarifying - the earlier versions of the plugin that I used did not have that feature (or at least I couldn't figure how to use them) - I will make some time very soon to look at this plugin and try it out. If it does what you say, I will probably almost certainly switch over to using it.

    I will check the tutorial since I have no clue. And as with all these plug-ins, they cannot be used on the free blogs?
  • Profile picture of the author IMChick
    Thank you so much for the tutorial. It's very helpful!
  • Profile picture of the author sena2gurl
    into auto blogging..is there any plugin/script for blogger.com...it will be interesting though
  • Profile picture of the author pyrmontvillage
    Great Plugin Satheesh, Can't wait to see, what form it takes in a few months.

    Thank You for all your work.

    Thanks to both Satheesh and also Scott. I like Scotts take on the idea of using the automated stuff and adding extra real content in strategic ways. I totally get that and do the same.

    Downloaded, and I'll check it out WP blogs, so far, seem to generate hits by themselves still. I'm not gonna ignore something that will make my life easier.

      Keith ...

      I thought the function, in your first model posted in the big long huge @$$ thread for WPOMATIC was to not just replace text with other text but to place LINKS on your posts keywords.

      Does YAAB perform this?

      enhanced Regex capabilities are sweet an all - but the missing piece Im having is autoplacement of links on my keywords.

      I look forward to ya'lls advisement...

      [wpomatic] was a no go for me - it banged up my theme - as I recall.

      You may recall I was extolling YAAB in Tim Dixons threads and well ... nifty little softie!

    Since I'm new to blogging this post is really interesting. Could someone tell me the advantages/disadvantages to auto blogging. Except, of course, the obvious--writing the content yourself---who has time to do that any more?

    Also, I've ready some on here about Yahoo pipes. Anyone care to explain that one?

      it does look like a lot of fun, and it's free, so well done that man - kind of a 'caffeinated content' but without a pricetag :-). One thing I would say - It doesn't address the issue of generating unique content though. There's a good (free) primer about autoblogging at Unlimited free traffic using autoblogs and autoblogging if you want to fast track.

    Thanks for sharing this info!

    Cheers, Mikko.

      Satheesh,

      The benefit of Wp-O-Matic is that it will add hyperlinks pointing your affiliate products pages ... automatically for whatever KEYWORDs you specify in the replacement field.

      .... As I understand its function ...

    yabb has potential, but the few times i used it it displayed weird things, like all text BIG.

    It needs some more work, otherwise it could become a very good plugin-

    I do small freelance jobs for local businesses. Social media, graphic design, web design and some marketing. All very small jobs. I recently was introduced to a guy who is a public speaker, author, has his own podcast and online store that generates sales of $550k and wants to double that up to $1.1m. Where would you start with a job like this?

    My website is only a month old, but Google has indexed the webpage I am checking the SERP position for. Here's the thing. I have an EMD and when I type the EMD keywords into Google, none of my webpages show up anywhere (I searched for it all the way to the last page which is page 34), but my Facebook, Google Plus, and YouTube pages all show up around pages 9 and 10! I haven't built any links back to these pages, but I did build a few no-follow comment links (URL links only) and paid for 3 directory links on pages with a PA of 35 to 50. Can someone please explain why my social pages would show up but not any of my webpages.
