Is there a WP plugin that posts full articles on my site?

Not only that but I wanted the RSS plugin to post those articles AS they are posted on the article site. Anything like this?

    Have you tried searching the Depository (Add New Plugin)?

    I believe there is a WSO on the forum that provides a plugin that
    takes a list of pdfs (separate articles) and posts the articles according to a schedule.

    Search for Robert Plank who offers such a plugin and enjoys great reputation.

    What are your goals for your website? are you wanting it to rank in Google or are you just using it for a hub to post your articles?

    Okay this is my goal ... I wanted to make the article to be posted on my site as it is being posted on the article site because I may get the chance of getting the attention of Google first which I believe if my site is indexed first then The other one on the article site can be seen as duplicate and I may get the ranks. Am I right or am I dreaming? Of course I intend to post the article as is with all the links.

      I'd recommend you focus on just getting the content put on your website first and don't worry about article directories at all.

      You could potentially get the article posted on a directory at a later date but most of the higher end directories would mark this as an article already published and decline it.

      I'm not a fan of article directories personally - sure you'll get a back link and you can hope for some traffic but article sites have declined since Google has given them a constant beating with algorithm changes; that back link probably won't have much power either because it's going to be a fresh page.

      IMO the majority of traffic on these sites is the wrong type anyway, it's mostly people researching for other articles and article writers/authors - your content wouldn't be reaching the right people.

      Article directories should be avoided by authors too - if you really want to put yourself in front of the right people you'd be better off putting together an ebook with a series of blog posts (high quality of course) and getting it on Kindle or using smashwords.com.

      Don't get me wrong though, article directories used to work well but as Bob Dylan once said; "the times they are a-changin".

      Just my two cents, others may not agree with me on this.

    I do not want to post articles on article sites. What I wanted is the reverse - posting articles on my site from article sites.

    Okay I will check that but as to what JohnMcCabe said, I kind of feel uneasy about what I wanted to do. But I intend to post as is - with all the links and bios - Is that okay?

    I felt it because I once got my article on another site and to my amazement that article was on top - the bad part, none of my links were there. Sure but sometimes the duplicates get on top or I don't know what..

      My problem wasn't the idea that you were going to legitimately post articles other writers made freely available for the purpose. My problem came from this bit:

      I wanted to make the article to be posted on my site as it is being posted on the article site because I may get the chance of getting the attention of Google first which I believe if my site is indexed first then The other one on the article site can be seen as duplicate and I may get the ranks.
      As sports officials are wont to say, "Upon further review..."

      If the author of the article on the directory is dumb enough to post to that directory without first getting it indexed on his own site, tough luck for him.

      In other words, if a writer is doing things right and getting the article indexed on his site before offering it for syndication, your plan won't hurt him in the long run. So have at it with a clear conscience, as long as you stick to your guns and publish according to the directory's TOS (links included, no changing the article, etc.).

    I've tried a few, and I always found the best one to be FeedWordPress:

    WordPress › FeedWordPress « WordPress Plugins

    Just be aware when you use it to get permission from the RSS feed author, and to have original content on your site too so you get SE rankings.
