7 best auto-blogging plugins for WordPress
Here’s the lineup plus a quick summary:
|No.||Plugin||Rating||Installs / Sales|
|1.||Feedzy RSS Feeds||94%||50000|
|2.||WP RSS Aggregator||90%||70000|
|3.||WPeMatico RSS Feed Fetcher||96%||20000|
|6.||WordPress Automatic Plugin||96%||18000|
Price: $0 or $149(premium)
Feedzy comes in two variants: free and premium. The free version lets you embed RSS feeds as a shortcode, but if you want true auto-blogging where you import feed items as actual posts, you’ll need the $149 premium version.
With the premium version, you can add feed items to posts, pages, and custom content types. The plugin even extracts product prices and other elements from custom feed tags.
Details like featured images, post status and type, excerpts, text length, quantity, or layout (Feedzy provides three different templates) are totally up to you. If you want to import only HTTPS images (and not HTTP), Feedzy will detect them for you.
Furthermore, you can choose to filter the articles that appear in your feed by keywords. You can either only include articles with certain keywords, or exclude all articles with certain keywords (or both!). And if you want to monetize your auto-blogging, you can automatically add affiliate/referral links to the posts. Removing the ‘dofollow’ tag from links in a single feed is also an option.
And an even more awesome part about Feedzy is that it is optimized to match the latest trends in the WordPress market. It comes integrated with Elementor and Gutenberg (for front-end customization), and with WordAI and SpinnerChief – two tools that can edit/rewrite the imported posts in a human-friendly style (in case you don’t want to use duplicate content on your site).
And if your chosen RSS feed only offers excerpts, Feedzy includes a feature that lets you still extract the full text.
Price: $0 + paid add-ons
Being one of the best auto-blogging plugins, WP RSS Aggregator is very simple to set up and customize. Apart from importing unlimited feeds from multiple sources, you can narrow your feed posts by publication date, the number of items per feed/import. Moreover, you can add custom feed URL and title, and decide the import order and processing interval.
While the free version lets you embed RSS feeds with a shortcode, you’ll need the paid Feed to Post add-on to actually start auto-blogging and import feed items as WordPress posts, pages, or custom post types.
With the Advanced Feeds bundle, you’ll also be able to import the full text, even if the RSS feed only includes excerpts. And you also gain the ability to filter feed items by keyword (including both include and exclude options):
To avoid any negative performance impact, WP RSS Aggregator also lets you set how often to import new content. And you can easily add HTML before/after imported content, as well as choose whether or not to credit the original source.
Price: $0 + paid add-ons
In this plugin, the feeds are called campaigns. So, in order to create feeds you need to start a campaign. The “Create Campaign” page is really interesting because it provides lots of options, displayed in colorful bars and blocks. The plugin has three post types: posts, pages, and media.
One nice feature of the campaign approach is that you can add multiple feeds to a single campaign (rather than having to add feeds separately like a lot of the other best auto-blogging plugins).
With WPeMatico, you can enable comments, pingbacks and trackbacks, the publication date of the original content, and automatically remove the links and the HTML tags from the imported content (which is very useful if you don’t want spammy links on your site).
Another nice feature of this plugin is that you have lots of options for scheduling campaigns (by weekday, month, day, hour, and minute). And you can always pause or reset the post count when you want to.
Each campaign has lots of options for the media that accompanies the imported content: images, audios, and videos. If you want to use a template that’s not provided by default, you can modify, arrange, or add extra content to every fetched post.
Aside from articles, the plugin also has a YouTube Fetcher for people who want to import videos instead of written content.
As far as free options go, CyberSyn is one of the best auto-blogging plugins that you’ll find.
This plugin is simple and slightly different from the aforementioned ones. Install it, set up your preferences (as in check a few boxes), and it will just work. You can either put it on autopilot (it will extract and publish the feeds by itself) or you can do it manually when you need more control over the articles that get published.
To add your feeds, just go to CyberSyn -> RSS/Atom Syndicator -> copy/paste the feed -> Syndicate. After you click Syndicate, a page with details will open up and you can set your preferences related to the given feed.
What can you do with CyberSyn? You can extract the full version of an article (as seen in the picture below), group feeds by categories, create tags, set the post status and number, accept/reject pings and comments from the users, generate thumbnails and media attachments (the images will be stored locally), set the maximum number of words for each excerpt, and embed the videos that exist in the original article.
It also includes a unique feature that lets you translate the imported feeds via Google Translate or Yandex Translate, as well as check the articles for duplicates and rewrite them with several spinner tools that it comes integrated with.
A nice thing about CyberSyn is that it can import many types of content including CSV tables, HTML documents, and JSON files. It extracts various types of feeds such as eBay feeds, XML, videos from YouTube, Vimeo, or Dailymotion, content from Yahoo, Flickr, and more.
5. WP Pipes
This plugin refers to feeds as pipes.
With it, you get a simple visual interface where you can choose to get the full text instead of excerpts, cut the intro, filter by keywords, get the images, or show the original source.
In the destination input, you can choose how to display the feeds on your website. You can modify parameters like title, slug, excerpt, content, date, images, category, and meta key.
After you have added all the options, click on Test This Pipe and a progress bar will show what posts are getting imported to your site (from here, you can edit them as your own posts or pages). The feed items will also appear live as blog posts.
WordPress Automatic Plugin makes its way on to the best auto-blogging plugins list because of the sheer number of import options it has. Beyond regular articles, it supports a whole range of other options: Amazon and Walmart products, YouTube, Vimeo, and DailyMotion videos, Flickr and Instagram images, eBay auctions, social media posts (tweets, pins, Reddit and Facebook posts), classifieds from Craigslist, iTunes content (such as songs, podcasts, apps, eBooks), SoundCloud songs, and even Envato items.
In other words, a lot of golden stuff especially for niche websites.
Beyond the option to choose your content source, you have the possibility to filter the content (by author, category, tag), so you won’t have to publish everything that gets posted on your chosen source.
You also have control over the post template, status, type, format, and the images that you want the plugin to fetch with the posts. Moreover, the plugin comes with advanced rewriting and translation options; it even replaces specific words automatically if there’s something that you want to avoid mentioning on your site.
7. WP Crawler
WP Crawler is another flexible plugin that was built to import a large variety of content on autopilot. You can publish design collections from Dribble or Behance, product lists from Amazon or Alibaba, photo showcase from Flickr or Unsplash, apps, social posts based on hashtags, WordPress themes, and lots of other resources.
It’s also easy to use. All you need to do is to add your sources, choose your preferred options, and run the crawler. You can get the data from other websites by using the HTML selectors and attributes; then set the post status, category, and type and also check the text for duplicates. The plugin lets you extract data from unlimited sources.
If you don’t want the crawler to post randomly, you can schedule it to run once per hour, twice a day, or daily.
