    Hi,

    I'm currently thinking what other content sources could be used for autoblogs beside the usual Youtube, articles, RSS feeds, Yahoo answers, which everyone is using already, since I figured the blogs would be more successful the more different sources of content they use.

    What I've already been thinking about:

    Affiliate Feeds - Would be like an endless source of content + very good to monetize but hard to use (or is there a plugin available for that?)

    Yahoo Groups - Didn't find too much good content there (might be niche specific) and it's rather hard to scrape since you have to apply for each group...

    Flickr - Would it be legal to scrape images from there?


    So, what other ideas do you guys have?

    There are alot of article blog-article content networks out there too. I aggregate a couple of them for other blogs no charge.. But, there are "rules" so I hesitate to just offer the network here. But there's lots of them. You give away two or three links inside the articles and everything else is yours.
