    total noob question, but do autoblogs need unique content or are feeds just fine in google's eyes? a mix or both or do i need totally unique content daily. if i have 100 blogs, how in the hell do i manage unique content daily - outsource?

    thanks,

    - lucas

    Feeds are fine. Duplicate content is fine.

    If you hypothetically wanted to rewrite it, use a rewriter plugin to do it automatically.

    thanks for the advice. what are the best re-writers out there. are people mostyl banking on serps indexing the re-written content, people visting the page and then clicking a link soon thereafter(i really doubt a re-writer is going to generate content a user will actually read)?

    Duplicate content is fine. The bad thing that you will never rank better than the original article

    its better to at least make the content a little different than the original ones if google does not give you any penalty for duplicate text than maybe if you have really bad luck the owner of the original content can maybe find you and give you some hard times. yes your doubts are right no software can spin articles as good as the human eye but they are a big help.

    i suggest you mix it up... its ok to run duplicates, just add a few original articles form time to time...

    Unique content is ALWAYS going to be better than duplicate content, and reposting an article from an RSS feed is duplicate content. People that say duplicate content is okay will not maximize the full potential of their autoblogs. Yes, they might see some traffic, but they will never outrank the original article or get more content than they would had their content been completely unique.

    There are a number of ways you can spin content to make it unique. Yes, it will never be as good as the original source regarding readability. You can either accept that their might be some funny sounding sentences and hope the user clicks off the page (hopefully on one of your ads or an affiliate link) or you can cloak your page.
