    Guys,

    Jeff Johnson at Underground Training Labs seems to be into autoblogs in a big way. I'm not clear on exactly what he's doing, but he releases a lot of free stuff, mostly videos and a hacked version of Wordpress.

    The latest is he turned his hacked wordpress into a plugin. It's an interesting one... basically it's a plugin to set up and configure:
    - All-in-One SEO Pack
    - Google Sitemap Generator
    - Autotagger
    - Sociable
    - MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer
    - Askimet
    - Database Backup
    - Simple Captcha

    It also sets your permalinks and makes sure you have certain Wordpress options filled out. For example, the permalinks are set to /%post-id%/%post-name%/ - this avoids duplicate posts of the same name. (It's also a footprint for Underground Training Labs blogs, so if you see one, please give a shout out!) It does give you a percentage on overall optimization, search engine optimization and secure. My wordpress install (based off WPMU) is 59.33% overall optimized, 51.54% SEO optimized and 77.5% secured, after doing all the activation and configuration. I guess his professional version adds the other 40 or so percent.

    You can download it by signing up through the orange box at the top left of the page.

    A word of warning though. It's IonCube encoded and will put advertising in your dashboard. You may want to try it out on a blog, see what it does, then remove it. I personally haven't looked at Sociable and Autotagger, but I am now. Also the database backup he recommends will send backups to email - Gmail is perfect for this.

    Hope this helps someone learn a little bit more about optimizing their blog. I wish it wasn't encoded so I could hack it to configure autoblogs.

    I have used this plugin on a couple blogs, I figured it wouldn't hurt anything. It would be awesome to have this plugin decoded, we could configure it for autoblog and blackhat use. You could have an autoblog setup and running with only a few clicks.

    I'm running Jeff's free SEO plug-in as well. Since it's merely a collection of free, available plug-ins, does anyone know what components are in the Professional version? And if they're freely available as well or proprietary?

    I am interested in the pro version as well.

    Here is an interesting site Jeff Johnson has and use posting from book marking sites, automatically and brings traffic to the homepage.

    http://xxx.hostgatorspecialoffer.com

    take a look. its an interesting concept.

    i think he uses Yahoo pipes? rss feeds by using many sites with chosen keywords, like "hostgator coupon"

    Jeff Johnson seems like a genius. Is his stuff worth the 200 dollars a month?

    Just curious, why the heck would you upload encrypted (and potentially backdoored) code on to your server to do something so trivial.

    I must be missing something.
