Getting hit with a lot of marketing emails for Content Gorilla... would love to hear if anyone has purchased this and what they think... Doing a search only brings up the usual affiliate "reviews" that we know are worthless...

Thanx

    Not sure about CG itself, but my only purchase from the Fox Bros., CB Predator, was not very impressive. I'm sure you can do a search on this forum for some reviews of that one. If you back out of CG you can get $10 off, so you can try it out for $17. But, it seems to be auto-blogging, which as far as I know is pretty much a thing of the past.

      Must be having some licensing issues, I've been playing email tag for the past 24 hours with support trying to get the plugin in activated and they don't seem to be able to do it automatically or manually (hostgator and wiredtree). Was looking for a temporary replacement for the Galert plugin. BTW when you try and exit the page there's a $10 discount (OTO to)

        Hi there

        The G Alert plug in is working again by the way - it was re tooled by Walt.

        But also FYI Google alerts have reinstated the Feed delivery option in the last couple of day without telling anyone!! So your feed related plug in should work again.

        Cheers

      Facebook and Blogger. Have no idea if the plugin works or not, sent my WP login to support and haven't heard back in 24 hours. 48 hours and counting and still no access, and I don't believe there's going to be support over the weekend

          So I guess you're a glutant for punishment. I also tried Rapid Content Wizard against my better judgement and my thoughts were confirmed that these type of content softwares are useless.

            Hey Joseph7384,

            How about a little information.

            Please don't just say a product is "useless". That is a useless review...

            If you bought it and tried it, tell us what your issues were. How did it perform? What did it do poorly? Did it do anything good?

            This way we can use your feedback to determine if it is useful or not for the application WE have in mind.

            This is not a flame, I'm just interested in actual feedback on the product because I'm considering making the purchase.

              Fair enough but I have been here long enough to know that if I post about a product that is not the topic of this discussion, my post will be deleted and I'll get a warning.

              I only responded to someone who had mentioned it, if you would like more info then start a thread about the product and I will give you a review in that thread.

                I have had the product since Monday morning and I cannot get it to work. I keep getting various error messages and it keeps losing the various keys that I input for Amazon, Flicker, etc. I sent repeated requests to support asking for help and there has been no response.

                I finally got fed up and opened a PayPal dispute today and had the same experience that another purchaser had. Not too long after opening the dispute, the seller contacted me and he denied my claim for a refund until after I close the PayPal dispute.

                Am I just being crazy or would I be stupid to close the dispute before the matter is resolved? All I want is my money back.

                  DO NOT close the Paypal claim....if you do you are not entitled to reopen it!.

          I to purchased Rapid Content Wizard and I agree, it produces un-useable content. And now I get an affiliate email from Sean Donahoe, the marketer behind RCW, shamelessly promoting this new similar content scraping product. Give me a break. And after we were promised amazing new features coming soon with RCW. Where are they and why promote a similar product instead of working to make your own product better?

    I was so exited to read the sales page, so jumped in. For me, unfortunately, it didn't do even a quarter of what they said it does. I have no intention to call it a scam, but I am wondering whether my case would be worth requesting a refund at JVZoo.

    Content Gorilla - Product Review

    I am affiliator with an office in Makuhari Techno Garden (near Tokyo). I lived in New Jersey for 8 years, but have been working in Japan for more than 10 years.

    I was quite shocked to read about the product launch of Content Gorilla, because it was full of functions that I had been looking for. I was not sure if it can handle Japanese language keywords, but jumped in and bought one for US$27 on September 14.

    Here is my product review:

    [Speed]
    It is a very big plugin, so it makes the WordPress very slow. In my case the time for a new page to appear got more than doubled (to about five seconds after clicking.)

    [Main Settings]
    1. Every time I press "Convert all keywords to Extract" button, quotation marks (" ") are added. If you press the button 3 times for some reasons, you will see """keyword""".

    2. Post Every [ ] Days/Hours. If you set it to "Hours" it is reset to "Days" when Sigle/Multi or "Convert.." buttons are pressed. If you press "Update Campaign" button, it mostly works.

    [Campaigns]
    Only five campaigns are listed (from old to new) in a page. If you have six campaigns, you must see the first page and then click the second page button. It takes five to six seconds for a page to appear after pressing the button. So, every time you edit a campaign and want to see how it is indicated in the Campaigns-list, you must click five or six times (25 to 30 seconds) and it's quite frustrating.

    [Amazon]
    The product can not only handle 37 languages but also can handle multiple country Amazon affiliate systems. Excellent! I tried Amazon.co.jp and my Amazon Japan ID was correctly put in posts that the plugin created. However, when I used Japanese language keywords, it created no posts. Translation of articles from English to Japanese did not work at all.

    [Viral Content Log]
    The log shows only 100 records or so. If you have 10 campaigns set to act every 2 hours, you can see records for the last 5 hours only. If a campaign fails to execute, it retries 3 times. Once a campaign fails to act for some reason it seems that the campaign is disabled, but the disabled campaign keeps getting executed three times at a two hour interval as scheduled. So the log gets choked by error messages quickly.

    Most of the error messages looked like this:
    "No active keywords or feeds for this campaign, possibly because they were disabled due to repeated errors. Check the status and reenable them on the campaign detail page. (Retry 3)"

    However, nothing is written on the campaign detail page about the status (whether a campaign is disabled or not) or "how to reenable them".

    [Does auto-posting really work?]

    I set up 10 campaigns ranging from easy ones (example: "Amazon" artiles containing "marketing" as the keyword) to difficult ones (example: Japanese keywords) for execution every two hours and waited overnight to see the result.

    Seven of my ten campaigns were "disabled" due to repeated errors (see above) and created three error messages every two hours. The easiest one ("marketing" on Amazon) created only one new post overnight, because of "skipping post to prevent duplicate content" according to the error message. There are a good number of Amazon articles having "marketing" as a keyword, but it could create only one post and skipped creating posts the next time to prevent duplicate content.

    Anyway, I could find only two new posts created (although I had 10 campaigns set up) during the last 10 hours.

    Auto-posting might work well if you were familiar with all the detailed rules about how to handle it. (It must have worked for Chris and Andrew.) Until I become an expert user of Content Gorilla I would have to spend may frustrating days.

    [Conclusion]
    The idea is exellent. However, I could not see even a quarter of what they said it does. There are good plugins and scripts for most of the functions that Content Gorilla tires to sell for, so I will go back to individual scripts. I never intend to say that it is a scam, because for Expert users knowing all the detailed rules about handling Content Gorilla, the product could be quite useful.

      I purchased on Thursday and still cannot activate the plugin. support seems to have gone AWOL for the weekend. "Bankers hours" I guess. Let's see launch the product on Thursday, and take the weekend off. The support seems spotty at best right now, kinda makes you wonder how long they plan to update/support it after the excitement dies down

I have requested a refund, lets hope they do it.

          Well after reading all the posts, if this is just 50% accureate, then the affiliates that we are trusting to send us good reliable information are in my opinion just as guilty. I'm sure going to take a hard look at those folks promoting this product. Not wasting my time with this. Actually i just unsubscribed from two affiliates promoting this to me.

        I can't believe anybody would launch a product and then disappear like that... WOW!

          Like I said "bankers hours"

          Apparently enough people had trouble with activating it so the did away with the activation key. Will test it out for a few days before passing judgement.

                  Hi Chris,

                  I was using the suggested email from the members area (support@content-gorilla.com), i have sent several emails with no response. Ultimately i had to fill a paypal dispute in order to receive your refund. Chris, i just believe this isn't the right way to conduct a business. If you provide a product, offer the proper support to it, i wasn't the only one raising this issue, just see the above responses from the warrior forum members in this tread, anyways, i got my refund. I wish you all the best, but you guys just lost a customer over this!

                  My Best Regards

                      I wish i would have read this thread before my purchase; after reading all posts; i fear that they may not honor their 30 day refund policy. How can marketers get away with that?

                      I cannot use it; it doesnt work; i have paid VA's (knowledgable ones) so that leaves me out even more money; not to mention; i was ignorant enough to purchase all the upsells (i am so embarrassed to admitting to this publicly.) but i hope this post will help others to do more research before purchasing products.

                      I had no idea there would be so many upsells;

                      3 sales for content gorilla

                      Then i purchased the webfire products offered.
                      That cost was around $200; some were monthly subscriptions which i will cancel; but still out the $200 some Dollars.

                      If i were a successful internet marketer; i know; that i could never promote a product that i had not tested; I would have to KNOW it worked; My inboxs were full of affilaites offering huge bonueses for Content Gorilla; So of course a newbie is going to believe it is a reputable product since 20 marketers (just in my inboxs alone) So i know they had many more affilaites promoting this product.

                      I had to stop using another similar plugin; because it did not work; and after professional help and receiving NO response from support; i have a useless plug in that i cannot use; and i am cancelling that monthly subscription.

                      Obviously, many marketers prey on the desperate newbies; as many of the marketers came to this forum to ASK about content gorilla BEFORE they purchased.

                      I am angry at myself for this purchase; as i know this marketer is wealthy; and if i had not purchased this product; I could have helped out someone in desperate need. And when this person asked for help; i couldnt help her; and she may be homeless because i spent money on something i cannot use; and may never get my money back.

                      Sorry for the rant; i rarely get angry; but since this is 2nd plugin that i have spent large amount of money on; i feel i do not know where to turn; who to trust.

                      I just do not see how anyone can state a 30 day refund and then not refund.?

                      I shall come back next week; with results of my refund attempt..

                      I am late with this post because i asked several competent people to help with this plugin; but everyone said it was very complicated; no key; no support; membership area a shamble; i had no idea where to even start once logged in.

                      Done venting;
                      However, i will report back if i receive refund or not.
                      Just lost over $200

                        I had no idea there would be so many upsells;

                        3 sales for content gorilla

                        Then i purchased the webfire products offered.
                        That cost was around $200; some were monthly subscriptions which i will cancel; but still out the $200 some Dollars.

                        If i were a successful internet marketer; i know; that i could never promote a product that i had not tested; I would have to KNOW it worked; My inboxs were full of affilaites offering huge bonueses for Content Gorilla; So of course a newbie is going to believe it is a reputable product since 20 marketers (just in my inboxs alone) So i know they had many more affilaites promoting this product.

                        I had to stop using another similar plugin; because it did not work; and after professional help and receiving NO response from support; i have a useless plug in that i cannot use; and i am cancelling that monthly subscription.

                        Obviously, many marketers prey on the desperate newbies; as many of the marketers came to this forum to ASK about content gorilla BEFORE they purchased.

                        I am angry at myself for this purchase; as i know this marketer is wealthy; and if i had not purchased this product; I could have helped out someone in desperate need. And when this person asked for help; i couldnt help her; and she may be homeless because i spent money on something i cannot use; and may never get my money back.

                        Sorry for the rant; i rarely get angry; but since this is 2nd plugin that i have spent large amount of money on; i feel i do not know where to turn; who to trust.

                        I just do not see how anyone can state a 30 day refund and then not refund.?

                        I shall come back next week; with results of my refund attempt..

                        I am late with this post because i asked several competent people to help with this plugin; but everyone said it was very complicated; no key; no support; membership area a shamble; i had no idea where to even start once logged in.

                        Done venting;
                        However, i will report back if i receive refund or not.
                        Just lost over $200
                        Deb
                        And now they're back with FB Gorilla I hope their support will be much better this time.

          Regarding the license function, we have updated the system we are using.

          If you delete the version of the plugin you own and re-download again from the members area that issue will be resolved.

          We will happily work with everyone who encounters any issues and get them fixed.

          This is a product that we use ourselves, sometimes by doing that you overlook things that may cause new users issues/or new issues are discovered through mass use that you have never noticed before.

          We have an update function built in so we can continually upgrade the plugin to correct any bugs or issues that are faced.

          I will try to pop back here again in the next few days. If you need support please contact us via the support email.

          Thanks,

      Hi,

      Thanks for such an in-depth look at our product.

      We have a remote update function installed within Content Gorilla purely to address any bugs that are found so when we publish an update you can do it directly from your wordpress admin panel.

      If you could PM me possibly with your email and login details for your site we will address the issues you have faced.

      I am also going to look into the speed functionality of it.

      ====

      2. Post Every [ ] Days/Hours. If you set it to "Hours" it is reset to "Days" when Sigle/Multi or "Convert.." buttons are pressed. If you press "Update Campaign" button, it mostly works.

      A) We have noticed this and are currently fixing it.

      Content Gorilla - Product Review

      I am affiliator with an office in Makuhari Techno Garden (near Tokyo). I lived in New Jersey for 8 years, but have been working in Japan for more than 10 years.

      I was quite shocked to read about the product launch of Content Gorilla, because it was full of functions that I had been looking for. I was not sure if it can handle Japanese language keywords, but jumped in and bought one for US$27 on September 14.

      Here is my product review:

      [Speed]
      It is a very big plugin, so it makes the WordPress very slow. In my case the time for a new page to appear got more than doubled (to about five seconds after clicking.)

      [Main Settings]
      1. Every time I press "Convert all keywords to Extract" button, quotation marks (" ") are added. If you press the button 3 times for some reasons, you will see """keyword""".

      2. Post Every [ ] Days/Hours. If you set it to "Hours" it is reset to "Days" when Sigle/Multi or "Convert.." buttons are pressed. If you press "Update Campaign" button, it mostly works.

      [Campaigns]
      Only five campaigns are listed (from old to new) in a page. If you have six campaigns, you must see the first page and then click the second page button. It takes five to six seconds for a page to appear after pressing the button. So, every time you edit a campaign and want to see how it is indicated in the Campaigns-list, you must click five or six times (25 to 30 seconds) and it's quite frustrating.

      [Amazon]
      The product can not only handle 37 languages but also can handle multiple country Amazon affiliate systems. Excellent! I tried Amazon.co.jp and my Amazon Japan ID was correctly put in posts that the plugin created. However, when I used Japanese language keywords, it created no posts. Translation of articles from English to Japanese did not work at all.

      [Viral Content Log]
      The log shows only 100 records or so. If you have 10 campaigns set to act every 2 hours, you can see records for the last 5 hours only. If a campaign fails to execute, it retries 3 times. Once a campaign fails to act for some reason it seems that the campaign is disabled, but the disabled campaign keeps getting executed three times at a two hour interval as scheduled. So the log gets choked by error messages quickly.

      Most of the error messages looked like this:
      "No active keywords or feeds for this campaign, possibly because they were disabled due to repeated errors. Check the status and reenable them on the campaign detail page. (Retry 3)"

      However, nothing is written on the campaign detail page about the status (whether a campaign is disabled or not) or "how to reenable them".

      [Does auto-posting really work?]

      I set up 10 campaigns ranging from easy ones (example: "Amazon" artiles containing "marketing" as the keyword) to difficult ones (example: Japanese keywords) for execution every two hours and waited overnight to see the result.

      Seven of my ten campaigns were "disabled" due to repeated errors (see above) and created three error messages every two hours. The easiest one ("marketing" on Amazon) created only one new post overnight, because of "skipping post to prevent duplicate content" according to the error message. There are a good number of Amazon articles having "marketing" as a keyword, but it could create only one post and skipped creating posts the next time to prevent duplicate content.

      Anyway, I could find only two new posts created (although I had 10 campaigns set up) during the last 10 hours.

      Auto-posting might work well if you were familiar with all the detailed rules about how to handle it. (It must have worked for Chris and Andrew.) Until I become an expert user of Content Gorilla I would have to spend may frustrating days.

      [Conclusion]
      The idea is exellent. However, I could not see even a quarter of what they said it does. There are good plugins and scripts for most of the functions that Content Gorilla tires to sell for, so I will go back to individual scripts. I never intend to say that it is a scam, because for Expert users knowing all the detailed rules about handling Content Gorilla, the product could be quite useful.[/QUOTE]

        Why did you re-release Viral Content Magician as Content Gorilla? You promised free updates and auto-updating with VCM but as far as I can tell the same plugin that you launched in Feb on FSO is available in the members area, and the plugin has not been updated at all.

        Answer: Yes! Lifetime updates! You will get every update made for the plugins
        3) Currently just Youtube. Though we are open to feature requests. One will be pulling videos from other sources. You will get lifetime updates
        So when do the your VCM customers get any new features or updates that you may add or have added to CG?

        Please advise.

    great review Haruka.....I have the tab open to buy at $17 but it appears just to "patchy" even for just a small investment. Why don't these developers beta test their products BEFORE launch instead of just chasing the $$$$?.

    When I bought it it worked. As described the default posting always goes back to days rather then hours. I tried the amazon module and that is working fine. Youtube is fine to but the articles always give me an error about a pic or some shit. So now out of the 3 types of modules only 2 are working so far. Really the 2 I want the most so far but will see.

    Support should be better because I know they spent good money for the launch now just do the same with support. Hope upgrades are on the way!

      Hi,

      In the option panel if you scroll down to Flickr, there is a little ? beside the api key field.

      if you click it you can get your api key from flickr.

      This is so we can display related images in your article.

      If you want you can go to module templates, scroll down to the article one and remove the tag for the flickr image.

      Regards,
      Chris

        Well I purchaced the main product and the the King Kong upgrade but instead of the upgrade I got something called "Theme and Link Builder" (one of the upsells) which I never wanted. It's probably a shopping cart glitch but still awaiting word from "support"

    Bought this yesterday. The interface, options and error messages remind me of WP-Robot. There seems to be a fair amount of bugs. Some of my observations to add to what was already said. I tested the social gorilla plugin from upsell #2, facebook and tumblr options from upsell #1, and the amazon, flickr & youtube modules from the main sales page.

    1) Main Amazon module is not working for me. It will not add the post to the database, but other modules like youtube and flickr work. I can even pull amazon products into other posts through the viral content feature on a manual post.

    2) Instructions to install post to Facebook module are incomplete from upsell #1. The post to Tumblr feature worked well, but it will seems to only post a regular blog post. It would be nice if you could create an image post.

    3) Upsell #2 plugin does not work at all, it gives a fatal error when activating. If you know some php you can fix the error. After fixing the error, I tested the Pinterest module and it did not work for me.

    4) The installation instructions are not very detailed and in some cases important steps are missing. Support system is an email address. I am still waiting for a response.

    At this point I stopped testing and will wait for some updates. Unlike a previous reviewer, the plugins did not slow down the admin screens for me. What did work for me, worked well. Overall, in the current state it is pretty much unusable for me and cost me a couple hours of my day.

      OK I'm still waiting for a reply to my support requests. I bought all three products here (main plus 2 upsells) and cannot access the upsells at all. I'm wondering if I can be bothered to waste my time trying to get this to work when nobody seems to know jack about what is going on.

      Why can't people test their stuff properly before releasing it?

      I'm trying to SAVE time here not waste it complaining about nonsense.

        Hello Crazy warrior's
        Can someone tell me more about the Upsell
        because if i read some of the post here it seems
        that the tumblr option and facebook are Upsell!?!
        it's not what i understood when i watch the demo video
        and reed the salepage
        I mean when you do a launch (even at a discounted price/ for a week)
        it should come with the more interesting feature (in my opinion)
        So if someone can tell me what we are really getting
        for the main product before i buy it
        and what are the OTO or Upsell
        Thank's a lot

          yes social media module is an upsell $47 on top
          except I paid for mine and cannot currently access it so have idea if it works
          the refund is in place if it does not work and I will blast them with a paypal dispute if I really have to but let's hope they :
          a) get their support fixed
          b) get their back-end password / license thing fixed and
          c) that their software is where it needs to be

          waste of time otherwise ?

          Anyone care out there from content gorilla?
          if you do, please find my support tickets (all 3 or 4 of them) and sort this out TODAY !!!

    Quick update:

    I am still waiting on a response from my email yesterday.

    I tested the theme which was included in upsell #2. It is a very basic theme that is easy to use. Great if you are looking to put up a bunch of decent looking sites in a hurry.

    It is being advertised as a responsive theme but there seems to be some bugs. It looked good on an ipad, on a ipod/kindle/google nexus 7 tablet the responsive theme did not work when viewing the site sideways (landscape). The responsive theme did not work at all on a Droid Razr.

    Guys, I bought that but under a different name.. I got it last march 2013 and they just completely repackage it.. Support sucks and some function never worked on the old plugin.. Lucky was given a refund.. I can't say it is the same with the support or if it is better so below is the link of their own plugin..

      Yep...it's some sort of relaunch under a different name as I also purchased the very similar VCM on FSO back in February. The same thread you were ignored on, Point2. VCM is basically a cut down copy of WP Robot and when we purchased VCM we were promised lifetime updates and additions to the plugin.

      I hope whatever they have added to content gorilla has been added to VCM! To be honest, I have used this some but not too much...mostly for autoposting YouTube vids.

      I was not impressed with the theme that was sold on VCM OTO and I believe it is nothing more than a very slightly modified version of Handoko Tantra's GoSense theme. It's a a rather oldish design and I could not get it to do what I needed it to do. I did not bother wasting more time on it trying to deal with support on the theme. I don't know what theme they are offering as an OTO for CG.

      For sure I always hate to see the same or very similar product relaunched by the same people with a different name just 6 or 7 months later.

      Best of luck to all!

    The seller contacted me back immediately after I filed a paypal dispute. He promptly denied my claim for a refund even though the sales page states a 30 day refund. I responded asking for a refund as stated on the sales page. We will see what happens.

    I am only posting here to share my experience because I definitely felt misled. At the time I purchased it, there was limited information available. After years of experience in IM, I should have known better, but this product was recommended by a couple of people who I trust and have bought a few quality products from over the years. Lesson learned, I am no longer on their mailing lists.

    From looking at all the features of CG, it looks like some sort of slimmed down version of WPRobot, which is an awesome plugin. Can anyone confirm the differences between CG and WProbot? Besides the price.

      WPRobot has a many, many more modules and has been supported for a few years now. Compare the CG sales page info to this:

      24 Modules

      WP Robot - Premium Wordpress Autoposting Plugin

      Features

      WP Robot - Premium Wordpress Autoposting Plugin

      CG is promoted as a 6-1 plugin (Amazon, Articles, Flickr, RSS, Youtube and Yahoo) with a social fan gate. This is identical to the Viral Content Magician they launched in Feb that I own. On this launch they hope to get your $$ on the backend with a facebook app and a theme.

      http://content-gorilla.com/images/jv-table.jpg

      I don't think WP Robot has changed it's name lately and it has fairly extensive documentation.

      WP Robot - Premium Wordpress Autoposting Plugin

      WP Robot has thousands of posts in the WP Robot support forum.

      WP Robot Support Forum

      Hope that helps.

        I was offered this by Mark Roth of Offervault. I thought Offervault are brokers for CPA merchants. Recently Offervault have been sending out some affiliate offers that are utter garbage.

        Why on earth do they lower their credibility and reputation by offering affil
        products when they should stick to what they know best. They have a brilliant portal for finding CPA Merchant's offers. Just beats me.

I had red flags up before I came here because I even saw a site offering what I thought was a misread but it was not. They were giving away CG's "OTO" KING KONG edition as a bonus.

Appreciate the post about WP Robot which looks much more established, albeit at a higher price. Well the price although important is not important if getting something that just works!

        I looked at CG and it does have some great ideas. I have had WP Robot for some time and find it to be a good tool. They have a proven track record and good support.

        WP Robot costs a bit more, but I think it is worth the money.

          Yeah, I think I agree with you. If you have seen the code, interface, post, and modules templates of both WP Robot and CG/VCM then for sure you know where most of those great ideas must have originated. :rolleyes:

        Yeah but WPRobot is way too expensive (In response to another poster)

        I am glad I came here they are having FLASH sale for $27.00 right now and I was planning on purchasing this today. Glad I didn't seems it was released in BETA version mode.

        I currently use BlogZeus for my autoblogging its cheap fast and simple. Im not an affiliate so just google it. $7 a month for unlimited sites pulls content from multiple sources and you can suggest features and they will add the most voted on by the users. ( Spinning of content is currently at the top of the list) Just my two cents

        Thanks Warriors for helping me save money by not buying this plugin that does not seem ready for prime time...if it ever will be.

          There are many wonderful vendors that make great products and care about their customers. But try to error on the side of caution when buying these products, or you will end up just wasting money and time.

          Like many of you have a purchased more than my share of junk. Fortunately, I have also purchased some wonderful training, tools and plugins. Because of the good tools and training along with hard work, I see a steady increase in business.

          Still, I would rather decline a purchase and later pay more if it proves to be good, then to throw good money after bad and deal with the wasted time and aggravation that comes with purchasing a questionable product.

          Them's my thoughts. What's yours?

    Purchased Content Gorilla plugin last week. Paid $27 and after reading this thread, I realize that it could have been 10 less.

    The activation key not working, immediately sent a mail to CG support. No response till now.

    Update: As suggested in this thread, downloaded the plugin again and re-installed and now it got activated. The features are good. Will update after using the plugin.

    I purchased the product and the facebook upgrade last week.

    As of right now, the plugin has activated but not worked at all on any site/hosting I have installed it on.

    I have contacted support 2 times now with no response and will be requesting a refund/paypal dispute tomorrow.

    Nothing more to say.

    FWIW Rapid Content Wizard is a desktop software and Content Gorilla/Viral Content Magician/WP Robot are Wordpress plugins.

    I also refunded RCW as it would not run on my system. I kept VCM and I have actually used it to post YT videos and comments on a schedule. I don't know if all of it's features work, as I have not tried them all, but I could not get anything to work on RCW.

    I was about to jump-in as someone mentioned leaving the page and getting $10-off so I thought, why not? Well, you have all convinced me of the why not. Another great sales page for a not-so-great product. If only products actually matched the over-hyped marketing. We would all love to see that. I appreciate all of your comments. Thanks.

    Is Content Gorilla a Scam!! I'll give you my experience so you can tell ME!

    I have paid for the product so I can tell you that the payment process was very efficient. I paid the money for Content Gorilla and the upsell for the King Kong edition. JVZoo immediately sent a receipt and just as quickly disappeared. They refuse to interact with purchasers.

    I can tell you nothing about Content Gorilla, because till today, 5 days later, I have still not laid eys on it. I have not received a download link, a receipt, or a human response from the support group at Content Gorilla. Least of all, a link to download the products I paid my hard earned $64 for.

    My 5 emails to content Gorilla support, expressing my despair, were responded to with auto emails asking me to register. When I registered, I got a page saying I'm not authorized to be on that page. My final email to content gorilla support was a request for a refund. That one did not even raise an auto response.

    Gorilla's may be slow of movement and wit, but it would be an insult to Gorillas to say they have any connection to Content Gorilla, or it's big brother, the King Kong edition, which I also foolishly paid for.

    I see glowing reports about content gorilla everywhere, but most seem to come from the vendor via the back door. I can't imagine that I'm the only person who has been ripped off (scammed) by the owners of Content Gorilla. I'm sure I'm not that special. So I am prepared to call this a SCAM. And I challenge the owners of Content Gorilla to prove me wrong!

    Respectfully,
    Kirsten Plotkin

    I can only concur with most of you

    1- it is highly unethical to offer $10 if you leave the page - be honest about the price at least - but it got worse..
    2- the license key did not work for days, no answer from so called "support" . The only time i did was after I threatened a refund .
    3- There are absolutely no explanations of how to get API for flickr for example and quite frankly I won't bother to try
    4- Everyone how has emailed me about this without bothering to check it is out of my trust.

    It is a wrongfully described product and heading for refund too.
    NB This is actually the only product I ever refunded but I do not appreciate all of us been taken for a ride.

      Agreed! Turns me off to the marketer(s), the developer(s) and the promoters. IMO it's as close to ripoff tactic as you can get!

      As far as a refund goes try contacting them through support first. If they don't reply then you can file a dispute --> but paypal often times does not refund non-tangible goods.

      I am not advising you to do this but take a look at post $47 & #61 on this thread to see how they got their refund. You can also try PMing one of marketers that has posted on this thread.

      http://www.warriorforum.com/members/1chrisfox.html

      You can also try contacting them through their paypal receiving email address. If you do contact paypal via phone or the dispute process do make sure you refer their money back guarantee and link any other pages that you think might be helpful.

      If it's sold through JVZoo you can try contacting them as well. If you paid via a credit card them you may have recourse via the credit card.

      Good luck

    I also upgraded and have found it to be mixed, amazon and Youtube work well and also Yahoo q&A, however Facebook is a nightmare. I followed the very poor instructions and set up a fan page for my site, got the keys etc. when i put everything into the options on the content gorilla page i just go in circles, many hours of frustration later i have given up and now using it for amazon.
    As of 10.30 pm UK time their site isn't showing, i don't know if they have removed it or not. A lot of promises are made about this content curation, i have yet to find a good one. This has been tested briefly before going to market in my opinion, the training gives the impression they can't be bothered so you are left on your own to work out things.

      These guys say they use it on their sites and since they launched Viral Content magician back in Feb (and for the most part it's the same thing as Content Gorilla) you would think it has been tested extensively.

      As far as Content Curation goes several of the tools I have purchased work fairly well.

      PageOne Curator by Paul Clifford and Curation Soft by Peter Lenkefi work rather nicely for mixed content sources. Both of these are pretty cool tools.

      Hugh Hitchcock has a whole stable of curation tools that work. I own his Viral Video Curator, his Viral Image Curator, and his Instant Content Creator Pro. Viral Video Curator is a very nice tool that you can schedule both blog and Facebook posts with. He also has an all-in-one tool called ICC Express but that is only available via a rather pricey membership at this time.

      ProfitMarketer has a decent tool called Instant Curator that you can do a ton of stuff with. Advanced users can do a lot with this one but basic users may not like it as well.

      Peter Garety has a pretty cool tool called RSS Magnet that can do some cool things.

      It's been around a while but Curation Fire by James Carter can do some things but I understand he is no longer developing the tool, but he is still supporting it.

      One of my new favorites is Buzz Burner (by Plugin Dynamo) as it has a ton of pro curation features... I have not yet had a chance to test everything out on this one...but it is a serious tool for serious curators, no doubt.

      So why do I have so many different curation tools? They all do things a little bit differently.

      As I have mentioned before I also own the almost clone of Content Gorilla called Viral Content Magician --> but both CG and VCM are basically stripped down clones of WP Robot which thousands of peeps have been using for several years. WP Robot has a ton more modules, quite a bit of documentation, and a support forum with thousands of posts. CG has far less modules than WP Robot does. I understand the developers have tried to beef up CG with some posting to other entities but I have no idea how well those features work.

        Below quoted post has pretty nice options....I am glad I googled and landed to this thread...Or else I was desperately blinded by Content-Gorilla Sales Video....I got strange feeling as inspite of my repeated 3 emails ( all were flaunting my eagerness to buy Content-Gorilla ) which I sent in hope to get few answers for my questions....No one bothered to answer my presale basic questions....since last three days.... Still I was so stupidly blinded by Content-Gorilla...that 30 minutes back I again landed on their sales page....to buy...

        But god saved me....What came to my mind and I googled review about these chareless creators and their so called great Product....."Content - Gorilla"
        There were tones of posts on this thread...that Help me instantly to back off...If this is how these product creators are handling we buyers...I dont know why Warrior Forum dont throw them out of the forum.....

        I had similar experience with James Renouf/Jeremy Kennedy = FB Farenheit & FBTargetID

        02) Newstweet http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...ccounts.html#1

        03) Newsbook http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...content.html#1

        04) Commision ShortCut these were Jokers,I was complete new to Warrior Forum and IM ( Which I still Am ) They created awesome Sales Pitch--> Their Main Offer and 1st OTO was related to what they had Boasted about,But these morons offers couple of more OTO at very very expensive cost...which I did purchased.....considering them to be the upgrade and automation of primary offer...but when I logged in...I realised these Jokers slapped me some other Yearly Moduled Dripped Content Course on SixFigureIncome...If they would have mentioned in their sales pitch itself that they are providing one more course..I would have learnt...that It had nothing to do with commission shortcut.....I wouldnt have purchased it......Their Support too was not that good....Complete Product Created to suck in buyers attention and money both...at one go..( Their Sales page had warning in very very tiny letters at the bottom ....stating......All the characters in this videos are Actors.........!!! I was Fool a big Fool saw that Line after investing into all silly otos and stuff....These Jokers create very sleek looking sexy Videos that too are loaded with professional actors...who will act as flamboyant and Smartest IM guys....and will surely trick any new bie......

        Thanks alot for this thread....Hope Warrior Forum save us all ( The Buyers ) from Sellers who keep on bullying Freshers and Newbies who are Ignorant

        regards

      Content Gorilla is basically a copy of the previously released Viral Content Magician (+ a couple of features) which is basically a very stripped down clone of WP Robot.

    OK so anyone scan with ClamXav and find PHP.Shell-51 in the ContentGorilla plugin? I just did a scan as my mac was starting to behave strangely.... and there it is.
    I have PM'd Chris the developer about this as well but maybe anyone that downloaded/installed the plugin or related software would do well to run a scan.

    ClamXav is a free virus and trojan software. still scanning the system now.

    Perhaps this may explain the strange behaviour of the software for me and some others here?

    if people like andrew fox or his brother 1ChrisFox are millionaires ill eat my black hat , as per most of these you get what you pay for $17 what awesome research is it going to buy its going to be a re hash or "resale right"? i think alot of sellers around the world think if its only afew pounds or dollars then people may verbally complian but most wont bother trying to chase the cash and thats what some sellers aim for .

    I am complete newbie i dnt pretend to know how internet marketing works , i do know whats being made to look good and ive been on afew well known "marketers" mailing lists , its all about making people think they are genuinly making this massive cash , without mentioning names i know a former marketer who has worked with some of the biggest names outhere and too quote him "only people getting rich are the sellers"

    I purchased Content Gorilla on Sept 20 and still have no access. Received a receipt from what looks like JVZoo but product is not on my JVzoo page and the password in the receipt does not work. It's almost like the receipt was not from JVzoo!

    Emailed support Nov 5 but no reply whatsoever. Sent another email today and also emailed the person that I purchased from to see what they can do. Reading this thread and seeing others in the same boat and some finding the product's performance lacking has really disappointed me. Who can you trust?

    My main complaint is that I sent an email to support@content-gorilla.com November 1st, and no one has gotten back to me as of yet.

    To the powers that be:

    Subject of my email:

    Re: Blogger.com part of Content Gorilla

    Email sent from:

    LanceRichard5304 *a*t* yahoo dot com

    Today I added a screen shot of the settings that I have put into blogger.com part of the plug-in to the original email. I would greatly appreciate it if someone would help me resolve my issue with this plug-in.


    P.S. In case my original email was "lost" I've included a screen shot of the email that I originally sent to this post.

    Not once have ContentGorilla answered my requests for help.

    Now I've decided to make a video of thc whole pitiful process and blast it out to the video sites. to help protect others so would
    anyone from ContentGorilla like to appear in it and give your side of the story?

    I was able to download and activate the plugin smoothly with no problems. But have not created any campaigns. I will try it later. I see where everyone is saying it doesn't work. if it doesn't work, then this will be the last time I buy anything else promoted by Sean Donahoe. That Rapid Content Wizard was not what they said it was, and now everyone is saying this plugin is more of the same.
