    Sorry for the noob question.
    I want to copy all the contents from some wordpress blogs to mine,I mean all the posts,thats all. I will set up my own theme and my own plugins for now.Is there any way I can copy contents tfrom one blog to mine automatically?
    Is WP robot supposed to do this?
    Also some of the blogs have rss feeds enabled. Is there any way for me to use that to bring the content over?

    If you fill your blog with duplicate content, it will not rank on Google, which source of traffic will you plan to use?

    Is it your own blog from where you want to copy the content?

    No point to copy/paste the exact content since google doesn't like duplicate content. If you want to use those articles just to rank you could prob spin the articles and then post them to your blog.
    There are few WP plugins that can Copy content from WP blogs or you could create your own crawler in phpquery.

    I have heard about something called "Sharpleech" .Not sure it works for wordress or not. It works for forums like PHPBB, Vbulletin etc.

    I'd recommend avoiding doing this unless you're planning on spinning the content with a spinner like WordAi

    Thanks everyone for the replies.
    I am not too worried about duplicate content part. Have been doing this for over a decade so I know what the ground reality is. I am new to WP but not to net.
    I have seen thousands of blogs mushroom in past 2/3 years, all with dupe content yet capturing a slice of traffic.
    I will check out wordpress autoblog plugin for sure. If anyone knows of any other plugin/script etc to copy blog posts please let me know
    thanks

    Yes. WP enables you to do that. But Google will not rank you if you copy all the content from another site like WP.

    Search for auto post plugins. Note: this will effect your site rankings.

    aside from WordPress plugins, I wonder if you could use something like IFTTT for this?

    Export WP posts in the Tools section, then import them into a new blog :)

    I don't know why you would want to do that. Try adding value rather than copying it.
