    Ok ... need some advice. I want to start some scraper blogs that link back to original articles or rewrite articles ... one or the other. Anyone know the best software/plugin to do that .. preferably one that is free or cracked?

    There is a Wordpress Plugin called Autoblog that will scrap content from RSS, and link back to original source. Do a search in google, u should be able to find it.

    But beware, I used it last year, and within short period of time, copyright emails were flying in. Oh well, some people just don't like their content to be scraped.

    So, it would be much better to use tools that could rewrite the articles/content or mix up several source to make it looks 'unique'. There are quite a few good one being discussed here.

    Hope this helps a little bit.

    Thanks ... I'll check into the rewriting option. Went to the autoblog plugin page and got this:

    This software is PERMANTLY ON HOLD. Go use Feedwordpress, you vile spammers, or the recently announced WP o' Matic. I will not provide this plugin, or anything like it, because the potential for abuse is way too high.

    lol ...

    Yup, the plugin is indeed just scrap those RSS out there. If you want, I still have a copy of the plugin. But it's not good to use.

    But I know there are still some people using it out there...coz they are scraping my spams too :p .

    I tried Feedworpress before, doesn't really work up to my need. It parses the feed, but I think it doesn't create a statis page like autoblog plugin.

    I have not tried WP o' Matic, no idea how's the effect.

    So good luck ahead.

    I tried the wp-o-matic. It worked great and was easy to install. It doesn't provide a link back ... developer said that will happen in another release. But if you used a scraper that does provide a link back and you're still getting a bunch of copyright heat, then maybe I should look for a scraper/rewriting content type of solution and avoid the copyright thing altogether.

    For rewriting content on the fly on WordPress blogs I've been using WordPress Rewriter. It's cheap to. It's only $9. I use the RSS scrapers or add some articles and this automatically rewrites everything (unless the script it told to exclude).

    man look at this url:

    h**p://labs.echo***ditto.com/fulltextrss

    It will convert description to the full posts in the feed.

    I think it goes to the post url - scrapes the post and inserts it back into the feed replacing the description.

    Woah, that's a pretty strong statement to make. RSS feeds are there for users who want to check for updates without having to repeatedly go to the website. Just because people don't want their content to be scraped it doesn't mean they will disable their RSS feeds.

    I totally agree. If they don't want their content syndicated, then they need to quit the hell syndicating it.

    I love the unique article wizard plugin myself. It's free and posts daily to specific categories. The more category choices you can give the plugin to post to, the better odds you have of it posting articles. I have a weight loss blog that uses it and I do nothing with it but let it sit. I get decent traffic daily from serps and clicks in adsense almost daily [at least 5 out of the 7 days].

    Definitely some good info here. I could use it sooner or later. BTW, does the autoposter post videos from YouTube and Google Video too or is there a seperate plugin for that?
