A few questions
« on: June 04, 2014, 09:52:00 AM »
I noticed on the sales page, it states that you can have AB automatically submit up to 3 articles per day. Is this 3 per blog, or a total of 3 per membership? If the latter, does it rotate between blogs then?

Does this limitation also apply to software that uses the API (like WP-Robot?).

Do you need a separate BacklinksIndexer account to use with AB? Or is that included with the membership?

Also, I see comments that AB articles may not pass copyscape. Is this because AB articles are competing against the "same" AB articles (- many versions of the same spun article)? Is the 75% uniqueness really enough to avoid dup content issues?

Thanks!

1. AB can post 3 articles per day per auto-posting job. You can setup multiple posting jobs per blog, so you could have it post more than 3 times a day if you want.

2. The same limitation applies to the API, yes.

3. You do no need a BLI account. That is handled by AB.

4. AB articles are not guaranteed to pass Copyscape, no, but 75%+ uniqueness is far more than enough for most circumstances (in my experience and that of many users).

Does AB have the capability to post via email?

No. It uses the WordPress xmlrpc api.

I assumed as much with Wordpress.

Email would allow posting to Blogger as well. Also, other blogging platforms.

If you have a lot of blogs, enough to make paying for a coder worthwhile, it seems that you could use the Blogger Import facility to shunt content from a WP blog to Blogger.

I did a quick Google and could see people had projects to convert XML output to other forms, including HTML. You'd need an intermediate site which would be invisible to the Internets because you don't get the raw XML feed. Probably use one WP site to feed a load of Blogger sites.

As a hint, here's an old script for importing rss feeds into Blogger blogs.
http://blog.hissohathair.com/2012/11/so-heres-some-code-then.html

We made a tool that imports content from any source we choose (including) ArticleBuilder and then reposts it into a new post on a non-WP CMS site. That central site then feeds content to hundreds and hundreds of other sites which are mostly WordPress but absolutely do not have to be, we do not use XML for that function.
We use the API to generate content from AB that we use to make other content unique, but which could be used to create complete articles.

Bottom line, if the project is worthwhile then you can do it. Setting up my system cost a few hundred dollars.

That's a thought. An "unlisted" (if you will :) ) distribution blog.

Turn off pinging and visibility. (I wonder if Google really honors robots.txt requests to not index/follow). I suppose it's easy enough to publish a new post, forward it, and then delete if necessary. A couple known plugins could do that, but I could create a script just as easily.

Man, with "no" theme, minimal plugins, no traffic - the WP site would have almost no overhead and would be a workhorse.

Thanks for the great idea Andrew!
