I heard that after the recent Google update, using automated content uploading software will get you banned from google adsense. Is it true?

    Google will ban you anytime they want to ban you. Even if you didnt break any rules. lol unfortunately I'm not kidding either.

    I would recommend just skipping adsense altogether and going with CPA/Affiliate banners on your site instead. You can make way more money with much faster payouts.

        I wouldn't as it violates Google's TOS:

        See Google AdSense Program Policies:
        https://www.google.com/adsense/suppo...y?answer=48182

        Under the heading "Webmaster Guildlines" it states:

        Avoid "doorway" pages created just for search engines or other "cookie cutter" approaches such as affiliate programs with little or no original content.
        There is also this one:

        Do not include deceptive or manipulative content or construction to improve your site's search engine ranking (e.g. your site's PageRank).

        Cheers ....
        Gerald.

    I have some sites built using WP Roobot . They are not banned. Problem is you will not get good ranking due to low /duplicate content issue . I built them as I have some domains that currently I m not using to build any site . Rather than having nothing I have used them to build those type of sites. Earning is very very low

    Google can be fickle, especially where AdSense is concerned. A better question to ask is; am I creating value for my site visitors? Site visitors may not like reading rehashed information from different parts of the internet but if you add commentary or your own information then they are more likely to be repeat visitors. And that will result in more ad revenue.

    As far as I know it is not against Adsense TOS but good luck getting those sites ranking well.

    The title of your topic asks if it is legal, not about if Google likes it.

    Yes, it is legal to use.

    No, Google doesn't like duplicate content.

      You nailed it, dude.

      I absolutely agree with the other warriors.

      I think some of the IM'ers do autoblogging for backlinking purposes.

    I have tried to use content generators in the past and when I tried to upload the content, wherever it was that I tried to upload it to was able to tell that it was "crap" and did kind of a scramble with it. Meaning, some words were just symbols and marks,, not letters. So, it could tell and scramled the content. So don't go payin' for it just yet. You'd probably be better off going to fiverr and having real content written for you.

    Google is not treating duplicate content very well these days. I don't know about banning you from Adsense ... maybe, but they will bury you in the serps.

    The thing about it is that anyone can look at a software and say it is bad for SEO. That doesn't mean it really is. It just means that if not used properly it can be bad for SEO. However, there are people who run autoblogs for reasons besides just getting indexed in Google and it wouldn't matter to them how Google ranks their websites.

    The more important question is...is it worth using? I think if you do some research you will find that for the most part it produces some pretty crappy posts that are often unrelated to your niche.

    I agree with most of the posters on this topic, I purchased WP robot a long time ago and over time it has not produced good results, (sorry, that's just the way it is) now you can supplement, it with better content, and you will see some results, but over all, I have made more money from websites that provide unique content over robot posts.

    I guess when you think about it, the idea is that you "set it up and then forget it"

    But that never really works, not in anything I have ever seen, and with Google changing the way it indexes content, that is yet another reason to avoid such automatic plugins.

    But, even more interesting, is this, this year 2011 alone there were three attempts to introduce bills in the US congress, that would make it a crime to upload and or use copyrighted content without the owners permission.

    (Yes this would include, auto posting plugins that take content without permission from other websites online.)

    When you think about it that way, you really do have to consider all the possibilities when you spend so much time in developing a good website why take a chance with a questionable method.

      It's already illegal and a crime.

      But nothing ever stops major copyright holders from pushing for greater penalties Of course, if they had there way we would not have cameras, copy machines, CD-Roms, etc.; and copyright would last forever (which is getting close to be being the situation).

    Actually, currently it is a matter for the civil court system, It must rise to the level of criminal behavior, currently there must exist some level of substantial proof, of a crime, it does not automatically rise to the level of a crime.

    if for example Writer A, were to copy Writer B, and then put that content on their website, it would not be a criminal matter, it would be a civil matter, if during the course of that issue, certain evidence came to light that writer B made X amount of money and then intentionally engaging in behavior that demonstrates a crime, by continuing to engage in that behavior then perhaps you could have a criminal matter.

    What that really means is that now, (right now) it takes a considerable level of proof to make it a criminal complaint, what they would like is to have it an automatic criminal event requiring little or no evidence, (which is why so many people object to this type of legal manipulation in the first place)


    If it were a Criminal matter, then the plaintiff would be the state not a private corporation.

    What the RIAA and the music industry and a plethora, of other organizations would like to have is criminalizing the behavior which currently is not criminal but civil.

    If it were to become a criminal matter then they would no longer bear the burden of proof or the financial responsibility of pursuing cases, in civil court.

    I think what you were referring to would be certain acts not in evidence, that would be a crime, but just copying copyrighted material is not currently a crime in most jurisdictions.

    Of course that is open to debate but I think that is about the best way to describe the issue which is why they want to have criminalization bills in congress, if it were not the case there would be no need to have a new bill in congress, they would simply apply the statutes that already exist.

    Section 501 of the copyright law states that “anyone who violates any of the exclusive rights of the copyright owner ...is an infringer of the copyright or right of the author.”
    Generally, under the law, one who engages in any of these activities without obtaining the copyright owner's permission may be liable for infringement. Nevertheless, there are several limitations of the exclusive rights of the copyright owner. The copyright law provides exemptions from infringement liability by authorizing certain uses under particularized circumstances. These exemptions are enumerated generally in sections 107-122 of the copyright law.

      It's not that high of a bar.

      If you did it on purpose to make money, it's criminal.

    Best is that you build an authority site and post to it everyday. Put adsense on it if you wish after one month then all you need is to get visitors and that is a whole other story.

    No push button system works. Having a online business is hard work.

      No, I don't think WP Robot or content generating softwares are being deemed illegal. I know I haven't been banned, and some of my sites have WP Robot in them. I think it's about how you configure the software, such as the frequency of posting that you would like, or the keywords that you are going to use, and stuff like that. Although, I must say, with the duplicate content and all, it doesn't help much with the rankings.
