Autoblogging is different than scheduling WordPress posts to publish at a later date. When scheduling posts, you are adding pre-written content to your post editor and specifying the time you would like it to be published. With autoblogging, you are scheduling software to find, compile, and publish the content it finds on your site.
Whether you agree with the use of autoblogging software or not, automated content creation tools exist and many online marketers use these tools to populate their blogs with content.
Some common uses for autoblogging/autoposting software includes:
- Sourcing content from news sites
- Publishing videos from sites like YouTube.com
- Adding content to affiliate sites and AdSense sites.
