Not all bloggers use auto blogging but some find it lazy to write original content. Instead, they copy out content from other blog and make use of article spinner or rewriter tool to rewrite it for them. Here on this my post, I will explain the reasons why you need to stop it only if you want to build an everlasting career or brand in blogging.
What Is Auto Blogging?
Autoblogging is a process of blogging in which your contents are automatically filtered and compiled from several websites RSS feeds. Well, you don’t need much to do because the auto blogging tool mostly does all the work. You as the blogger don’t need much to do other than to set up the software on your WordPress or your blogging platform. Then select your preferred feeds from the public domain depending on the type of auto blogging plugin that you are using. Finally, set your schedules and the number of posts to be generated and published. After doing all these, the work is left out to the software. Automatically you will be seeing new posts on your blog. Before I start hitting the nails, I will like to share some of the autoblogging plugins for the benefit of those that will insist to start auto blogging! It is not new, some are destined to be a lazy blogger…lol
WP RSS Aggregator
WP RSS Aggregator is one of the best automatic blogging add-ons and is very easy to configure and customize. You can not only import streams from multiple sources indefinitely, but you can also limit feed postings based on the date of publication and the number of items in the feed/import. In addition, you can add the URL, the custom font address, and the processing interval, the import task order.
Although, you can include a short code RSS feed in the free version, you need the paid publishing extension to start automatic blogs and import feed items such as the pages, publications or types of WordPress publications. .
With the Advanced Fonts package, you can also import full text even if the RSS feed contains only snippets. You can also filter your feed items by keyword.
Newsomatic Auto News Plugin
Newsomatic is a powerful auto blogging WordPress plugin that cost $35 on Codecanyon. In fact, before I decided to write and share this post, I personally bought this plugin to run autoblogging on one of my blogs. My experience with auto blogging using this powerful plugin has made me write on the reasons you need to avoid auto blogging in 2019.
Below are reasons to avoid autoblogging in 2019
You can’t build a solid brand with auto blogging
Well, it is not everyone that really want blogging as a real-time business! But if you want to blog as a career, you dream of having a solid brand in the name of your blog? There is no doubt, auto blogging will definitely kill this dream. The auto blogging plugin fetches contents from other websites with their link back to the original content. It has passed a message across to your readers that you are not the real owner of the posts. I observed when am using the Autoblog plugin– 70% out of those that read a particular content never come back on the blog again. Which may imply that, they have seen the original content from the source through the link back below each of the posts. Truth be told, after seeing where the post is moved down to the third party blog(your blog).Do you think they will come back to read junk(a copied post which has appeared on another blog) and the worst part of this, some of this Autoblog plugin comes with an inbuilt spinner. Many of the posts that are fetched from the third parties blogs are rewritten contents by the spinner. Obviously, the posts are not readable to a human. When your customers or readers find it difficult to understand your points or the information in your contents, definitely, you are not building integrity either you are building a brand. Well, there is always an option may be to use the inbuilt spinner or not. Without the spinner, the content will be published on your blog exactly it was in the source! Don’t you think this is stealing? Absolutely yes! Copying posts or publishing someone else contents on your blog will reduce your integrity and the quality of your blog or brand.
Your SEO will be damaged using Autoblogging
If you want to blog for fun or just to be sharing the latest news with your fans on social media without writing. I think you can opt-in for auto blogging! But, if you want to blog where a search engine will rank your posts for more traffic to your blog. Auto blogging will disrupt this goal…In my observation, while using auto blogging, I observed that my blog visibility was reduced by 45% in just 7days after having 800+ auto-posts from another blog. I quickly start thinking on reasons why my ranking slip drastically. Although, I use the inbuilt spinner which makes my post to be unique to some extent even though it is not readable. So, it is not about copied content. But, do you know that all my readers find it hard to understand what the content is all about. My bounce rate was between 85% and 95% which I believe is why Google and other Search engines keep pushing my blog to the deeper side. Where people won’t find my posts in their search query. We all know the benefits of good SEO to a business or brand. So, if you want good SEO ranking, Autoblog is not a choice. Instead, employ good writers to write for you that is if you are not good at writing or maybe you are always busy to write.
In conclusion, I have discussed the reasons to avoid autoblogging in 2019…Well, am not discouraging you not to start Autoblogging! I am only sharing the effects it would have on your brand or business. But, if you just want to be keeping your friends and fans updated on social media, autoblogging can be good for you.
