    Hi fellow bhw members

    i am a newbie but am making fast progress. I have just got a scraping script which scrapes a limited number of posts from any given websites and posts it as a draft in my blog. then i can publish it myself. i would like to know if using such a script would cause a problem with my hosting provider becz i have several other websites running on the same shared server account.

    depends on your host I guess

    1 thing i would point out is duplicate content is hard to rank so you might want to create your own content or outsource it so you have unique content on your blog

    thanks and yes you are right about what you said about duplicate content and i am aware of it. Anyways, its not regular articles and also i plan to drive traffic through social media so im not too worried. what im worried about is if this might create problems with hosting. i had a chat with the hosting providers and they said we wont allow anything that consumes a lot of resources. So im wondering if such scripts are known to be resource intensive or not beacuse i have some money making websites on the same account.

    its is a php script which i installed in my wordpress theme and then made a custom page template assigning the script name as template. then i just run that page n it extracts the posts from the website for which it is customized for.

    if anyone needs that script pl ask me.

    some scripts can be resource hungry, it depends on how well it is coded. It will be difficult for people to asses it without seeing it and knowing who your web host is. If you post the name of the script somebody might have knowledge of it.
