    I had a Google Alert today, I had a look at the site that had listed my URL and I found that it was a forum.

    The post that my URL was in had been extracted from Yahoo! Answers!!!

    Take a look at this:
    http://www.tomdan.cn/

    The whole forum has been made by extracting Questions & Answers form Yahoo! Answers.

    Does anyone know where I can get this plugin? This is more of a discussion because the plugin is so cool than a request thread :D

    That looks totally awesome...
    it's like an auto-forum.

    I think it would be best to just make a niche forum and include q's and a's from one category though.

    Yeah thats what I was thinking, spent ages searching about for a similar script, must be custom, it must be very very advanced in the sense of registering users with profiles, knowing when the last answer is instead of just stopping after 1/2 or something. I wouldnt mind getting my hands on a similar script, is similar to an autoblog but I havnt seen an autoforum before!!!

    If anyone on this forum can understand chinese you will probably have a good chance of finding it as the forum software that is used on this site is a very powerful chinese forum board

    some rss import i think, but what's the use of scrapping yahoo...
    goog will index it faster than any other site and yahoo is much more trustworthy
    msn has many closed for se forums, that's where the real unique content is

    Here you go:

    How to create content for a forum using Yahoo Answers

    If you start a forum but have no idea how to get people in there or if its already set up and want some extra content in your discussions. I never tell people about this little trick as its a big money making technique, however since I am in such a sharing mood and you stumbled across it and asked and I read here you go:

    Firstly make sure you have a Yahoo Developer ID, if not sign up here:

    Code:
    developer.yahoo.com
    IMPORTANT: Make sure you note of all the information they gives you.

    Get a copy of ICO-Content. The company that made this modification for VBulletin is pretty much now defunct, but copies of ICO-Content are floating around everywhere. Download it here:

    Code:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/59871915/Ico-Content1.5.2.zip
    Follow all the instructions to get everything set up, it can be pretty tricky for a non-coder, search for tutorials online.

    Now its setup, you need to find keywords for the system to start new threads with. Try using Google's external keyword tool here:

    Code:
    https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
    Now, the forum is set up with auto posting threads and posts.

    Make sure it works by going to Scheduled Tasks and click Run Now next to the ICO-Content task. Do this 4-5 times to make sure its updating.

    Another trick, put a Meta Refresh in the header that updates every 120 seconds or so and leave your browser window open all night while you sleep, when you wake up you will have hundreds of new posts (depending on how many new posts you set the program to update with)

    One more trick, finding keywords that REALLY work, is to set up VBulletin to email you with every new post to the forum, that way you can review every single post individually as they are made and delete the ones that aren't relevant.

    Hope this helps you make money and enjoy!

    P.S - There is a new solution to this type of method. Check it out:

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    There will be a BST thread in Jr vip in the next day or 2, for software that will get from yahoo answers, and a second one that will get from wiki answers.

    After JR. Vip get first shot at it [at a discount] I will start a BST here for it.

    The yahoo answers script is done, the wiki script will be done tomorrow.

    [ It is not for sale outside bst threads]

    Or you can use some of the nulled stuff here like instadigi.

    I had the scripts made so that I can fill forums and then sell the domain, with the software [a valid copy]

    THe Rss feed manager can do the work for you. Just grab some Rss Feeds..

    But if you want replies to that.. then you need a custom script.

    Ico content may not work for vbulletin

    Also, PLEASE CLOSE THE REGISTRATIONS to forum.. or xrumers will spam your forum before u even notice..

    :)

    have fun.

    Are there any yahoo answers posters working with Vbulletin right now? I recently set up a new forum and have been using rss to populate it, the only problem is that it only posts part of the article and has a link to the entire article.

    It sounds like Forum Post Robot. Don't know if it has been shared.

    I do not want to step on any toes here but I will also be releasing a tool of my own to do this with phpBB3 and then extend that to work with phpBB2 and other forums. Its a simple and extremely quick tool.
