The Easiest WP AutoBlogger Ever, And It's Totally FREE!

by Scot Standke 123 replies
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.

        My question is this....

        Can the posts be configured to arrive in Draft mode so that I can preview them before posting? I've used autoblogging tools in the past and my biggest complaint was that stuff in the RSS feed would be posted that I didn't want and I didn't have much control over it.

    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?
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[463344].message }}
  • 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.

          Hi Satheesh, I first want to thank you in offering this plugin free. I downloaded and activated it. I had no problem in fetching a google rss, but when I tried to fetch another feed, it returned zero results even though there was rss data available to pull in. The only thing I could see was that google had a .rss extension and the other url feed just ended in /feed

        Hi I have tried using Yahoo pipes and I definately see the potential, do you have any tips available to set this sort of thing up, becauseeverytime i try it i get news reel via RSS diplayed on a service like google reader, but what i want is a system that inserts mashed up RSS feeds into my blog as a post. or is this eutopia???

        Agree about Yahoo pipes. I started using it when the service was first released. I have recently revisited and I've got some great things in the works. It does take some time investment, but the return and possibilities are much greater than plugins IMO.

    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.

      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!

        WP-O-Matic allows for the replacement of words/phrases as they appear in the incoming RSS content, as well as allowing you to insert specified hyperlinks with those words as the anchor text.

        It seems like this COULD be done with YAAB although in a more roundabout way. I imagine you could replace "word" with "<a href='whatever'>word</a>"...

        It's inelegant, but might work. Not sure. Haven't tested yet. I really like a lot of the other features as well.

            Thanks Satheesh for your generosity with the plugin. I have been using it with BAYRSS to automatically place eBay ads under each post. It works really well. I just put the BAYRSS code in the footer box of the YAAB set up page and it lists the ads neatly under the posts as they come in.

            I tried it also with the PHPBay plugin but it does not seem to like the .htaccess file that PHPBay requires. It will not display the gallery photos and when you click the links it brings up an error page. I need to do some more experimenting with it. However with the BAYRSS it just cruises right along.

            If it is true that giving brings you blessings, you will certainly be a very well blessed person as are many others I am sure from this forum many of whom have posted in this thread.

            All the best.

    I've been testing YAAB and I have to say I'm very impressed with the newer features that have been added over time. The replace function you have in there works great for my purposes, and I find the internal cron to be a little more stable than that I can get with WP-O-Matic sometimes.

    Great work!

    I'm currently using in only on a non-public blog that I engineered just for remixing content to use elsewhere. To that end, I tried using the "publish to email" feature, but couldn't get it working.

    As an alternative, I've begun to use "Post Notification" plugin and that seems to work okay for the time being.

    Very, very powerful piece of software. Thanks very much for releasing it to the public for free!

    It works really well. I am very impressed with it.

      I have been testing this plugin for a few days and have a couple questions.
      Where can we find rss feeds to add and if a website has a feed is it ok to use any sites feed? On the first and second run it posted 100 post per time, any way to set a limit per day?

          That happened to me too. I was trying to scrape from article directories. It shot over 160 posts of summaries and tons of dupes.

            Most of the article directories only give article summary in the RSS feed. I encountered the same problem, so that's why I modify my own article directory to output the full article in the rss feed.

            So if you are looking for a full article feed, you can get it at my article directory:

            Full Article RSS Feed

                Hi Jim,

                I am not sure I fully understand your question, so let me know if my answer is way off.

                After entering your keywords in the rss builder page. Hit the "Get Feed'" button and you will be redirected to a page showing the content of the feed.

                If you like what you see, go to the address bar at the top of your browser and copy the URL. That will be the rss feed URL. You can then paste this URL into any application/plugin that can take a rss feed.

                If you don't like what you see or see no content, go back to the rss builder page and fine-tune the keywords or check for any typo.

    For those complaining about the summaries - this is an issue with the RSS feeds. This type of plug-in isn't "scraping". It is re-publishing the RSS feeds. It takes a whole different type of script to scrape the content from a site. Many if not most article directories and quite a few other sites only include summaries in the RSS feed. There are quite a few sites that are actually very successful publishing the summaries. Even some which only publish the titles! Of course, summaries give much less opportunity to put in extra affiliate links and much more chance that the reader will leave your site.

    You will find that there is a large group of RSS feed owners who are very happy to have their feed published all over the internet as long as links to the original are included. They consider it a benefit. Similar to article marketing. It is actually what the term syndication really means.

    There is another very large group who regard the feed as something only for the convenience of readers inside a feed reader. This group will feel that you are stealing their content. If they feel that way, then you are. If there is any doubt, just ask them politely.

    You can throw in some original content, or the Google Reader technique for adding commentary that you will find in another thread and even a plugin like the free UAW plugin to keep from just duplicating somebody else's blog.

    For those above hoping for some reason to find a plug-in that creates good original content, you need to hire a writer.

      Just a quick follow up to my previous post regarding using PHPBay with the YAAB plugin. If you don't use the SEO URLs or the mod_rewrite features when you set up your PHPBay plugin then PHPBay works very well with the YAAB plugin. Without those features enabled it eliminates the .htaccess problem and brings in the eBay and Amazon ads automatically.

    I haven't tried using phpbay tag with it just yet. I dont see why it would be a problem with SEO links enabled. Do you have the Visual Editor disbaled in your profile ?

    Anyhow I have included my adsense tag in the context box and that works just fine. Now my adsense ad's are displayed within every feed posted.

    hi,
    i have finally installed this and try out.. think this will be a much better option then WP-O-Matic. but i need some help on the layout.
    i have installed on the blog with simple feeds (used only 2) but the output of the feed onto my blog looks kind of weird. there is a huge gap/ spacing between the post title and the post content. is there any way to rectify this issue? anyone having same kind of issue?
    also, the plugin seems to repeat the title again in the post content, which means users will see post title twice. any advise please?

    Guys, I have to say, I've been the biggest advocate of WP-O-Matic, but once I figured out how to use the regex part to do my link replacement, I've switched to YAAB. If he gets the post to email part fixed with the next update, I'm 100% switching to YAAB instead.

    I don't like the little graphic dude in the plugin, but functionally, it's comparable to WPOM but better because it's actively developed by a dude who hangs out here.

          Do any of the auto-blogging plugins scrape the whole posts rather than just title and summaries or is this an unrealistic expectation?

            I'd like to know this, too. I have installed the plugin on a blog, but all of the RSS feeds I've tried are just summaries. I have about 200 posts on this blog now that are only 5-20 words long. Any idea where to find some quality RSS feeds that are full text?

        Yes, indeed ... there are new products on the market now that are more effective and well supported ... like WP-Robot, WPmanagerDX etc ... not free, though! There is a limit to which a vendor can support a free product.

        I completely agree with you. This is why I prefer alternate methods of
        providing content to my blog empire.

        This is a huge disadvantage of free plugins, there's no incentive to update
        the code as WordPress is updated. You then face a stark choice... Leave
        your WP version as it stands, with your plugin still working... or update your
        WP, with a lag time before the plugin is updated before it starts working
        again. To this day, I still haven't got a plugin to get the targetting of posts
        100% correct. I have to go in and delete/edit posts.

    how can you compare WPManagerDX with yaab? Its totally different. Wp-Robot also does not support RSS.

    Yaab is still VERY good, and its the only one which supports keywords PLUS pulling from RSS feeds. I did/do a lot with autoblogs and you can believe me that yaab is a very powerful autoblogger.

    As for the author - i actually emailed him. Without going into private details, due to personal reasons the author doesn't have the time to support and further develop yaab anymore.

      WP-Robot supports RSS, as of a couple of days ago. It's not a wildly cheap plugin, but once it's set up it can be left to it's own devices while it pays for itself, which doesn't take all that long. I wouldn't be without it now.

    I had YAAB installed on one of my blogs as a test. I removed it because it's not
    worth it to me to use YAAB. There are a lot of ad's that have that authors' (YAAB's)
    affiliate ID, and this completely dropped the profits for that blog. I've gone back to
    my orginal method of posting content, and profits are climbing their way back. It will
    be some time next year at this rate before profits are back to what they used to be.
