    I want to create a WP website about a famous TV show.
    Is it possible to use a WP plugin to pull in articles from other media sources?

    What effect does that have on my SEO...will the site simply not rank at all?

    Does anyone know of any recent plugins to pull in news articles based on a keyword?

    thanks

    There's a plugin called "MyCurator" that's free (i think). There are paid solutions from Curation Soft and Curation Traffic. You can pull content as long as there's a RSS feed for the tag, category, etc.

    SEO-wise?? Not sure on the impact. Sellers of paid curation plugins say that Google loves it because you're sharing info but I'm not too sure about that.

    Hey,

    There's plenty of plug-ins like the one you're asking for. Usually you can escape the duplicate content Google frowning by just having something that spins the content.

    It's not as hands-off as some other solutions but: http://curationtraffic.com/ is probably my favorite.

    The classic/best-in-class for hands-off: http://wprobot.net/

    And since you're just starting off, I'd highly recommend this: http://codecanyon.net/item/wp-best-ranker/5031233?ref=vcosheesh

    [yes that link has my affiliate id...threw it in because I figured why not..Just go to the item here without any attribution to me: http://codecanyon.net/item/wp-best-ranker/5031233


    Cheers,
    - ice

    The idea behind original content curation is to add some paragraphs before the article you "curate" and some text after the article.
    If you plan to simply use a plugin and pull in quantum of articles, you can forget on any success.

    i read it somewhere, that you take 40% of the article, add pics and videos then you give your conclusion

    If the whole site is dupe content, you have a short window where it can rank. After somewhere between a few days and a few weeks it will drop like a rock.
