    OK, here's the situation. I am new to blogging. I have looked at Autoblogged and now I just found Blogsense, so I was wondering if anyone can help me decide on which product I should choose.

    Can anyone give some insight to these 2 products. As a newbie, I really want a simple way to create blogs. I do not want a cumbersome way to create them. Also, I want to know if any of them are Adsense friendly.

    I want to know the pros and cons on these 2 products. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Both of these products seem very promising but I really would like to hear from some experts.

    Thanks

    Autoblogged has been here for a while now and there are many threads dedicated to it.So the 1st one may be a good choice according to me :).New ones always require some testing ;)

    Well.. I use both. Most of my blogs are using Autoblogged and I've tried to use Blogsense but it just doesn't seem to fit my needs at the moment. Let me explain.

    Most autoblogging programs like wp-o-matic, Autoblogged, etc let you set up campaigns where you can have 1 RSS feed for each campaign. Then you can easily put all the RSS feed post from that campaign into one specific category on your blog without having to do any fancy keyword sorting. With Autoblogged you can even filter post based on keyworld if you wanted to narrow down what post are used like blogsense does.

    Blogsense doesn't work that way. There are no individual campaigns. With blogsense you put all your RSS feeds in one master "RSS Pool" list. Then blogsense reads those RSS feeds and uses keywords to sort the post into their proper categories. This is nice but If you have multiple categories that are very close to each other then sorting by keywords may not work as in my case.

    Blogsense does offer alot more features overall then Autoblogged though. It has a Article drop posting module, Amazon, Clickbank, youtube and Social bookmarking support for Onlywire and twitter plus a bunch of other features such as a little more control on how many post you would like it to make in day, Etc.


    Autoblogged as been around longer, seems to have most if not all of the kinks worked out.

    Blogsense is new product and the author has been very responsive to any technical issues which there have been a few and he seems responsive to request for more features so hopefully he gets around to adding a campaign type system.

    I hope that helps...

    Thank you for that honest review kilaz. Looks like the rss pool needs to go. In BlogSense every module but the RSS module has the individual feed/campaign control feel to it, so I will make a point in the next update to make the rss module like the other modules.

    adding to the already stated features though. BlogSense went up to 2.4 yesterday and these two new features were added:

    Hulu Video Embeding (Hulu has very flexible rss feeds)
    Yahoo Answers Module (This one being the coolest imo cause not only does it make the question a post and it's answers the comments, but it "slow drips" comments/answers one per day, every day after the post goes live for however many days there are comments. This makes the post feel more natural, and look more natural to the spiders too. I think BlogSense is the only autoblogger to take this approach with Yahoo Answers-- maybe someone who uses wprobot or another could fill us in??)

    I really like WPRobot so you might want to check that one out as well. It has a lot of modules for clickbank, ebay, amazon, youtube, etc. Worth checking into if you are wanting to get into autoblogging. :)

    If you read this Thread ,
    you will see that Blogsense offers similar features at more then half the price of WPRobot in their current launch promo.
