    I'm trying to decide on which on the purchase.

    The PHPBay Pro & PHPZon are on special for $99.

    I want to setup an autoblog with one of these plugins and was wondering if anyone has any experience with either of these as far as SEO, profit Etc.

    Please share your thoughts.

    Thanks!

    hi:
    I have been using phpbay for a couple of years on my sites. the plugin works with the Eb*y API and updates auction listings within posts or pages that you create. so the post / page content is changing. the plugin does not auto create posts.

    The plugin author is very responsive and there is an active and helpful forum community.

    Currently i use a combination of: phpbay and wpomatic within a few of my sites. phpbay for shopping posts and wpomatic for news auto posts. as we know, wpomatic shares some similarities with wprobot in terms of auto creating posts from fetching rss feeds.

    i can not comment on wprobot, as i do not use it. However I may buy it in the future.

    Note: my personal approach >> wprobot is a complex plugin in terms of, it offers to do many powerful tasks. all of the tasks can be achieved by several independent plugins, some paid, some free.

    I isolated the tasks that i needed to achieve in a autoblog and sought out the paid and free plugins to achieve the tasks. in this way, i am not reliant on only 1 plugin in the event that the plugin fails.

    in my setup, i have spread the risk by imploying several plugins to achieve the tasks. if 1 breaks, then i find a replacement. but my site does not collapse. if wprobot fails, my whole blog would fail.

    in short, phpbay is the choice for autoupdating Eb*y listings within posts or pages. and also provided coded protection from hackers and bots.

    regards

    Are these intended to work with Amazon only?

    Not sure if your new to forums or just trying to raise your post count but it is not good forum etiquette to bump old threads - especially if your not providing useful info. This is the 3rd thread in a row where the last post was at least 6 months ago and you bumped it with no new information.

    Could you please explain why exactly it is better? Can in automatically create featured post images (thumbnails) for magazine-style, tube-style and pinterest-style themes? Can it parse XML's of unconditioned formats (not just standard RSS and Atom feeds)? Does it allow to use proxy servers, custom parsers ect? :)
