Newbie needs some help regarding auto-blog creation software

9 replies
Hey everyone, I'm a new here (and somewhat new to internet marketing). I love the constructive feedback in this forum!

Right now I have been writing my own articles and using Magical Article Writer to spin the articles, then I submit them manually to various article directories. The manual labor is driving me insane and link building has been really tough, I build my own squidoo lenses and so on (my niche is Fibromyalgia and all I'm selling is my book). It's not going as well as I wanted to and I'd like to help it along with some automation. I will get a link building tool later, for now I really want to find a blog or website automation tool.

I started a hunt for an automation software after reading about the WPMage software, which unfortunately is out of my price range, which caused me to research other tools. And now I'm on overload and more confused than when I started. :confused:

Would anyone care to answer some of these questions?

1. First, Wordpress confuses me, and I prefer Blogger blogs. Is it really necessary to have a WP blog over a Blogger blog? Does anyone know if there even is an automation software for Blogger?

What I want to find is a software that allows me to create Blogger (or WP) blogs automatically while auto posting original content including the sales items from Amazon, Ebay, CPA offers, etc. Ideally I would like to find something that brings in review comments from other sources. These are the other software packages I reviewed and read about, they all seem to do similar things but some of these features are definitely over my head. I'm not sure which ones are best and what other software I may need to fully automate the systems.

EZEmpire Builder (this one is a bit confusing to me but seems to have the biggest promise)
WPMixer
WPRobot
WPManagerDX
BlogginMaster
BuildaBlogStore
PushButton Marketer

There was another one I looked at but failed to write the name down. The videos featured a nice female voice with a fairly heavy Asian accent; the software requires you entering 1 keyword and selection of a template and it creates the entire site automatically. I can't seem to find it again but perhaps someone recognizes what I'm talking about.

Can anyone shed some light on what is the best one out there for a beginner and if 1 of these will suffice or do I need a combination of them?

Sorry for the long post!

    Hey Francoise,

    EZEmpire uses databases to as sources for the auto content and will require 1) Building a database using a webscraper, or 2)Outsourcing to build a database 3) Or buy one that has been premade, which already be being using by another.

    I do not know if it works with Blogger, but I believe it probably can.

    A reason to go with Wordpress over Blogger is because there is a gigantic selectction of plugins, free and for fee, that are developed to make things easier for the user. Also you will host the blog yourself through a wordpress install, which gives you more ownership. Many long time Worpdress users have arsenals of plguins they collected that are extremely helpful, and they will tell you that the experience they can create with wordpress cannot be replicated through the Blogger or any other blogging platform.

    One software you probably haven't run into yet is my BlogSense, which I've been developing about 8 months now and have a userbase of around 300.

    This type of autoblogger is similar to the types as WP Robot and WPTweetBomb, being designed solely for wordpress and each being different and unique in it's own way.

    I would not say that BlogSense, WP Robot, or WPTweetBomb are programs for building splogs, although they can be, but both are rather tools that require some manual attention and forethought in selecting the sources you want to redistribute and making sure the information carries over in the desired way. Moving around content can be messy and difficult sometimes in automation.

    A program like WP Mage is more of a setup your keyword and fast develop type software, but the quality typically suffers from this type of development. It also has it's place though.

    As far as Blogger goes though, if you wanted to stay in that area I would suggest taking a look at BlogHatter. I tried that out for a little while, but not too extensively, it looked like a strong product that focused solely on Blogger.

    The best thing you can do is to keep narrowing your options down and watch as many videos / read as much as possible on your final options.

    Maybe some others will have experiences to share too!

      Thank you so much for your detailed feedback - I so appreciate it! I am on BlogSense right now and love how the video pops on top of the screen - very neat indeed.

      Everywhere I look I hear that WP is it and I think I just have to bite the bullet and make the transition. :-)

      Thank you again!

    I'll give you one piece of advice and thats to look more towards using wordpress than blogger. There are ways of doing most of the things you want with a blogger blog but the big thing is you never own the blog and Google can at their will decide to suspend or even delete your blog.

    Using wordpress on your own hosting you have no worries of the Big G shutting you down. Plus as atwellpub says there are many more options for you with everything you are wanting to do with wordpress and most of them are free if you keep looking.

    I have to agree with Redhat39 about going with Wordpress. Also, one thing that really tripped me up the first time I started a blog was that someone instructed me to do it from wordpress.com which is fine if you don't want to do anything with it. You must have it hosted on your own hosting account (many of them have icons that will install it with a click of a button if the host has cpanel) These blogs that are installed on your own host with cpanel come from Wordpress.org!

    Wish someone had told me that a long time ago. I actually paid an IT guy to customize and optimize it and he just never got it done. You think he would have known why.

    On one of my blogs I use Blogomator for automatic content. I'm still not sure if it's a good thing though. I like that it automatically posts but it makes me put off doing some blogging there myself too and I think that hurts my whole reason for the blog in the first place-Traffic!

    All the best to you with your blog Francoise!

      Hi Sally,

      Thank you for your input! Yes, I use Yahoo as my website hosting platform and I did try to install the WP blog. I built my site with Yahoo Site Builder, which was super easy and a lot of fun, but I never could understand how to work with the WP piece of it. I don't want to maintain a site with Yahoo Site Builder AND having to maintain a blog. My ideal situation and goal is to have a WP website that has a mixture of static pages, a blog (set on auto-pilot with automatic unique spun articles and comments) as well as a community, for which eventually I want to charge a membership for.

      I want to build an empire and THE go-to place for people with Fibromyalgia, and putting together the pieces with the right pieces of software has been a confusing and overwhelming journey.

      Thank you all for your valuable help!

      Francoise

    I'd suggest taking a look at AutoBlog Blueprint, it seems to cover exactly what you're trying to do, and with version 2 due in around three weeks time, promises step by step videos of how to set everything up.
