Does anyone know anything about autoblog sniper that just came out?

    Other than the information on the JV page there is not a lot of information. I contacted the product creator, Bryan Hughes with some specific questions about the software and his reply was not very helpful. He stated,

    "I don't mean to be rude, but i'm dealing with a potential million dollar launch in less than 8 hours and I need to work on it.Your questions are insightful and really in depth, so I need to forward them to my support staff. In general, any questions you may have, can be answered directly once we finish the launch week."

    Here is what I asked, "Your sales copy states that the software will auto-spin the content. Are you using true "syntax" spin software, i.e. Best Spinner or an obfuscation method. Please advise.

    Also, does the software pull RSS feeds as well as articles? And finally, what kind of training support will you offer with the plugin?"

    I also requested a "review" copy, but he stated they weren't making any available. Basically I'd have to purchase a copy at $87!

    Here is my issue.

    1. The creator of the software, Bryan Hughes is relatively unknown; although he states on the JV page, "If you never worked with us before...There's a good reason - we were working behind the scenes, making other people Millions of Dollars".

    2. There are no big names signed up promoting his launch, so where are the folks he's been making millions for. There is absolutely "NO BUZZ" making driving traffic to money sites a challenge. I checked CB this morning. The product has a gravity of "3.00" meaning few affiliates are pushing it.

    3. No testimonials from users; although they state the software has undergone "5 months of rigorous testing"

    Basically from what I can tell, the software pulls articles from various article directories, images and Youtube videos thus creating unique content by combining a mash-up from various sources. It also inserts keyword phrases and LSI terms to add to the SEO.

    This is nothing new. The same can be accomplished with most autoblogging software programs if you know what you're doing and you combine 4-5 free WP plugins (i.e. Simplicity, Zemanta, any YouTube scraper.

    As far as the spinning capability, my question was never answered.

    I have scores of autoblogs and use or have used most of the autoblogging software platforms. I decided to promote this one based on the "SNIPER" site angle.

    That's my 2 cents!

        My partner decided to ask them pretty much the same great questions that you did and this is exactly what was sent back and nothing more, so don't feel bad

        "What's your proven sales history? do you have a list? and if so - how big?"

        And her reply back to him was:

        Did you just answer my questions with a question? Seriously?

        And since then, nothing back.

        My feeling is it's a very strange reply back to someone with a few good questions that is interested in buying and marketing your product. They state on their site:

        "If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me at:"

        So we did and now we know!

    I've got it and here are my findings:

    There is no Best Spinner or anything like that but an obfuscation method
    The software doesn't pull RSS feeds.
    Training consists of 5 short videos that you get to download.

    01 - Keyword Research (finding sniper keywords)

    very basic demonstration using Market Samurai

    02 - Related Keywords (LSI keywords)

    basic as above, using Google KW tool

    03 - Purchasing A Domain & Wordpress Installation

    (no need to comment on this)

    04 - Using Autoblog Sniper to build a sniper site

    the very same video that is playing on the sales page,
    more of an overview than serious tutorial.
    Plugin comes in a zip file with a loooong name,
    but in video they show to upload autoblog-sniper.zip
    Inside the long named zip there is no such zip file
    but other zip, php, css files
    as parts of the plugin, plus a few free
    basic plugins (all-in-one-seo,easy-privacy-policy,
    google-sitemap, kb-robotstxt, wp-obscure)
    Anyone used to build blogs, supposedly could find a
    way around installing it properly, but the video
    definitely is not showing clearly what to do
    so beginners may get lost at the very beginning.

    05 - FAQ
    again, very short and general as all above
    on how to get site indexed and ranked:
    do more posts,do article marketing, do backlinks building...
    (the only one specific advise is to use Angela backlinks service)

    There's a link to recommended resources but it leads to 404-page not found (so far)

    All in all,
    * as for tutorials, I didn't expect much more since this is not promoted as a course but plugin,
    anyway more detailed instruction on installation and usage of the plugin itself is missing.
    There's readme.txt in the download zip and it's reading:
    --------
    === Autoblog sniper ===

    Help content will be here

    ----------

    * as for the plugins features, actualy nothing new under the sun.
    Wp Simplicity as well as some other tools can do the exact job nicely
    for those who know what they are doing.
    For those who don't, I doubt Autoblog Sniper will do any magic.

    But, it's only me.
    Anyone interested should look at it by themselves.
    Everything is relative.

      I purchased it on the morning of to do my review of the product.

      I think it is pretty good because of how much time it does save you with installs and configuring your sites. Plus, pulling the content if you choose is a nice add.

      But, there really is no training and the plugin doesn't really do anything new, as someone said before.

      The major part that I like about it is the fact that it can configure your site for you without you having to really go behind and fix this or that, which is the most time consuming part of building a sniper site besides the content.

      In my review, I did recommend it but not for traditional VRE auto bloggers and not for newbies. If you are already making sniper sites it is very good, though.

      I tested it out on 3 blogs and it only took about an hour to have each one completed, minus the review. I really think that the value that this presents is more in the amount of time it saves rather than what new features it brings to the table.

      You pretty much must already have knowledge in making sniper sites or it is pretty worthless.

          How intensive is the depth of knowledge required?

          * (buyers/profitable) keyword research is the first crucial step

          there are some tools out here that can help you save the time,
          but IMO any software that automate the process isn't of much help
          if you don't have the basic knowledge and understanding of the process.
          (that comes first and foremost with some experience)

          * on-site SEO meaning:
          - good content
          and again, even you would be offered a number of articles, videos and images
          to use, it's up to you to choose good ones and take care to optimize the post(s)
          regarding your keywords.
          - site SEO optimization regarding interlinking, tags and so on
          regardless of what would be done initially using this plugin, IMO
          it should be improved and maintained with some additional
          plugins. Choosing those and proper configuring them requires
          knowledge and some experience too.

          In short, if you're new to sniper sites, you would need an additional
          step-by-step guide/course and the best one I know is George Brown's
          Google Sniper.

          Hope this helps

          If you have never made a sniper site, it is pretty simple. The basic concept is to build your site around one keyword and having the layout be done in a certain way that helps to get your site's links and ads noticed.

          These kind of site are basically "lazy man sites" because you generally don't need to do backlinking, or much backlinking, to get on the first page.

          If you want to learn more about it then I suggest you get Google Sniper 2.0 by George Brown.

          Here is the link (not my affiliate link, in case you were wondering): George Brown's Google Sniper 2.0

          Hopefully this answered your question. feel free to pm me if you have more.

        Since you've already test it on 3 blogs, could you tell us
        * what's about monetization ?
        How it works?
        Is there any automatic feature that links to your aff.link ?
        And
        * about proper configuring
        Is there automatic seo smart interlinking, tagging ... ?

        Or we need to add some more plugins on our own to get all this done ?

        There was an upsell offering more plugins, didn't look deeply into it since it was not cheap and I already have a nice collection of plugins.

        Your reply would be much appreciated , I am still on the fence to keep it or
        go for refund.

          The configuration for the way that I do my site is pretty much what I get when I use autoblog sniper. All I have to do is add a text widget to the sidebar with a banner and I am done.

          However, If you want to get your interlinking thing happening and everything else to get some nicer SEO result then you will need a lot more plugins. All it really does is fill in the Site details with your keyword and LSI stuff, throws your sidebar together and then sets up all of the plugins that come with it(which are already free)

          His up sell was absolute junk. Some old plr stuff that he re-purposed into software or videos. He also sent me a bonus keyword tool, then when you open it you find out that it is plr, Keyword Buzz to be exact.

    The plugin does not add really nothing worth $87 for the sniper site
    to be successful (i.e. earning money).

    IMO sniper sites only "sound" to be easy and "lazy man sites"
    because they are supposed to bring results with no additional
    marketing efforts (building backlinks and so)

    However, what differs them from any other blog/site type
    is that they relay ONLY upon well done FIRST two steps
    in the process of building any type of site
    and those are
    keyword research and
    on-site SEO

    If those are not well mastered, quick and easy blog setup
    is worthless.
    If those are mastered well, sniper blog's setup should be quick and
    easy without this plugin.

    If this plugin was offering some keyword suggestions
    and / or good converting products to choose from,
    and only after that
    would go to find good content using the main keyword and some good related
    keywords on it's own...
    and set up the whole site with content
    doing all site optimization including proper tagging and interlinking
    than it could hold the name "autoblog sniper"

    For sure, if someone will ever invent something like that,
    it probably would cost much more than $87.
    (But I would still be willing to go for it )
