    OK, I'm building an autoblog that's a little more complicated than any I've ever done before. The feed I'm pulling in has great content but is just text, and I want to add images.

    Images from Flickr won't work, I need images from a search engine because the images need to be of the exact words in the title. (they are products, but the source site doesn't have images.) Does anyone know of a wordpress plugin that will scrape Google Images or Yahoo Images for specific keywords and insert an image into a post?

    Ideally it would be a function I can call at the beginning of the blog post, within the loop, that would pull it's search term from
    Code:
    <?php the_title(); ?>
    .

    Thanks!

    b14ck1ce,

    Are you using wordpress? If yes, maybe this solve your problem. Why dont you try Zemanta plugin and Insights Plugin. Play and have fun with it.

    Yes, I am using wordpress. The Insights plugin looks great, I think I'll install it on my main blog that I update manually, thanks!

    For this project I need something automated, neither of those quite fit the bill.. but a definite thanks for introducing me to something I can use for another project. :)
