WP Turbo Plugin Creates Niche Websites Automatically

Part of the reason why you may be interested in reading the posts on John Chow dot Com in the first place is that you want to learn more about how to generate passive income. You want to gain that kind of “time freedom” associated with the dot com lifestyle.

So, one route that you may want to consider is something called auto-blogging. In this review, we’ll take a look at WP Turbo. This premium WordPress plug-in is designed to put your WordPress site on autopilot.

Putting Your Site on Autopilot

I know what you’re thinking. There are already many other solutions out there that can effectively generate blogs that will update themselves. However, there is at least one key advantage that WP Turbo has over these alternatives.

WP Turbo Plugin Creates Niche Websites Automatically

Whereas many other autoblogging programs only draw from a single or a small handful of resources, WP Turbo pulls from multiple content sources. True, you won’t have much in terms of original content on the site, but you have to recognize that these niche sites were never really meant to be original.

Where can you get these replicated content? WP Turbo currently has over twenty different modules, including Amazon, ClickBank, eBay, IMDB, iTunes, LinkShare, Oodle, Twitter, and more. It can also pull in press releases or even job postings from Freelancer.com.

Configuring a Template

After you’ve downloaded and installed WP Turbo to your WordPress site, you can start going through to configure each of the individual components to suit your needs.

For example, here is the portion for the Flickr module. In this case, you’ll need to grab an API key from Flickr (which is free), choose the Flickr licenses that you’d like to use, and customize the template to suit your needs and preferences.

As you can see, the posts that would be generated using this template would display the medium size version of the Flickr image, linking it back to the original image URL. Underneath this, the post should show the associated description, date taken, and the name of the owner.

Other modules come with built-in monetization, like Amazon and ClickBank. You can see some of the other sample sites to get an idea of what you can do with WP Turbo. Even with modules that aren’t pre-monetized, you can easily use WordPress themes with integrated ad spaces.

Setting Up a Posting Campaign

After you’ve configured the modules that you plan on using, you can start setting up a campaign to use those templates to generate content for your site.

On the bright side, you are able to choose the post interval. You have a new post generated every hour or you can have a new one generated every seven days (or somewhere in between). The bad news is that there does not appear to be an option to set an “expiry date” for a campaign. This means that you do need to come in to stop it manually, should you want to do so.

Aside from that, you can define keywords, choose categories, customize post templates (to combine modules if you want), and so forth. It’s all relatively straightforward to understand and implement and you can check up on all your active campaigns from the main campaign page.

How Relevant Is the Content?

As an auto-blogging program, WP Turbo can quite easily come up with content that isn’t exactly relevant. Take this, for example.

I entered three keyword phrases for a campaign: Dot Com Pho, Vancouver Entrepreneur, and Make Money in Vancouver. What image did it pull from Flickr? A non-English image of a ladybug. I don’t see how that is even remotely relevant. The algorithm, in this way, could use some work.

  1. Sounds like a good idea John, but as I am sure you know with this blog the real interaction with the readers is what makes a blog successful and I have run auto-blogs before and had nothing but server hassles with them – great they were getting traffic but in a year of operation they didn’t make a cent – so might sit on the fence for this one, lol.

    1. Abhik says:

      Autoblogs can generate revenue, but you have to know how to do it.

      Tip: Do not use PPC Advertising.. πŸ™‚

      1. Autoblogs can also spell disaster if you have an Adsense account. You an get banned for auto content.

        1. Abhik says:

          Well, I already mentioned not to use PPC.

          1. PPC Ian says:

            I would recommend staying away from auto blogging. It doesn’t add any value to the user or Internet.

          2. Yes making internet a better place and also for long term business, we should add relevant and important details.

            Doshdosh blog is an example of it.

          3. But recently when I checked his blog … I found that his blog is blank.

            Do any one knows about it ?

          4. d3so says:

            I’m against auto blogging as well. I get irritated if they actually make the first page on google.

  2. anitha says:

    Interesting one but i am new with wordpress plugin i have not tried this before do you have any tutorials

    1. Abhik says:

      I am sure you’ll find tutos on their website..

  3. Looks promising, but I will think about it.I have used similar software and to my disappoinment the traffic just don’t go anywhere, you still have to work hard to get quality backlinks, blog posting, blog guess, also it would be more convincing if the owner of this wp-plugin share their success stories and comparison on CTR and sales conversions.But thank you for this article, makes me on the loop in IM world.Cheers

  4. I will try to use that plugin to create many niche websites. Ill see if it works.

    1. Abhik says:

      Don’t forget to let us know..

    2. Have you had any luck with this?

  5. whenever I see automate creation … I strike few points which force me to avoid it.

    1. Xuantuyen says:

      uhmm…. I too.

    2. Yeah all automatic content will be deindex by google. slowly but sure.

      1. PPC Ian says:

        I couldn’t agree more. This seems really risky and moreover just the wrong thing to do. At the end of the day, you want to add value to society. Why create a bunch of auto content that adds no value to the user and potentially jeopardizes your relationship with search engines? I would avoid this type of stuff at all costs. There is no shortcut to making money online. Get out there, work hard adding real value, and the rewards will come.

        1. Ian I respect your thoughts … really noble thinking.

          Nice to have people like you in our friend circle.

    3. Abhik says:

      And, what are those?

    4. Yes, you seriously want to consider if you want to use any auto content creation system today. Google is on to all of this stuff.

      1. d3so says:

        I heard they changed the algorithm recently to crack down on automated content.

  6. Justin says:

    “True, you won’t have much in terms of original content on the site, but you have to recognize that these niche sites were never really meant to be original.”

    How on earth people would find plugin’s like this useful in an age where engine’s like Google are working on huge penalties for blogs with duplicate content and scraped content etc is completely beyond me..!

    Either I have misunderstood this post or it is a total waste of time reading.

    1. Kate Kutny says:

      I agree with you Justin that duplicate content is not good. And that is another important reason why I would never touch this plugin. I get on the top page of google really quickly all the time for keywords in my blog. I don’t want to ruin my relationship with the big G.

      1. d3so says:

        It would be foolish to use this on a blog you worked hard on.

  7. Alison says:

    This is a constant topic of conversation between my husband and I. He’s so busy with work that even though we both know we need to blog, he’d like something that makes it, well, easier. I come down solidly on the side of original content will ultimately trump all, because sooner or later google’s algorithms WILL catch the crap and filter it out AND penalize content farms, autoblogging sites and other sites that DO NOT ADD VALUE.

  8. Lakhyajyoti says:

    I heard first time about turbo plugin.Planning to give a try.

    1. TBTARC.COM says:

      it was very well and I heard first time about turbo plugin too,

    2. Do you create niche based website ?

  9. Blogercise says:

    “I entered three keyword phrases for a campaign: Dot Com Pho, Vancouver Entrepreneur, and Make Money in Vancouver. What image did it pull from Flickr? A non-English image of a ladybug”

    This is perhaps a limitation of Flickr’s search engine and/or the terms used?

  10. Kate Kutny says:

    This can be a good plugin for those that can’t write or don’t have time. But I enjoy having my own unique content on my blog because it makes me feel it’s more “my” blog when it’s mostly my content on there. Plus I like good content on my site. I would not mind having guest posts on my blog though. But I don’t think this plugin is something for me.

    1. Kate, I feel alike you. Original content is what I like. What I do best. What I highly recommend, although it also have to be relevant to your audience. And the best way to make it custom-tailored for your readers, is actually optimize your blog posts.

      P.S. Just wrote a recent article on the topic, you might find it helpful. Now, going to check out your blog. πŸ™‚

  11. fas says:

    But how well do they earn is the real question.

    1. Abhik says:

      That’s right.. But one of my autoblogs earns mid $xxx per month.. That’s good enough for those type of blogs.

  12. posan says:

    This quite interesting, but i give up with something “auto”, it’s better to create original content and it’s safer with Big G

    1. PPC Ian says:

      You are 100% right! Just 1 page of unique, original, value-add content is worth infinitely more than 100 pages of auto-generated junk.

      1. Abhik says:

        Well, I somewhat disagree..
        Not going into any argument, but I am making some extra cash from autoblogs. They still works.

  13. Oh ya John what is the different between wp robot and wp turbo? Last time I used wp robot plugins all my niche site was deindex by google.

  14. Surely the whole point of the latest Google “farmer” update was to “punish” sites that scraped, copied or otherwise their content? I cannot see how (and yes, I have used them in the past) auto plug-ins like this or WP Robot can possibly be of any benefit anymore, and frankly I am rather surprised that a blog such as your own (again, in light of the recent update) can endorse such products.

  15. Allen Walker says:

    I’m already using WP Robot, but this looks like something worth checking out. πŸ™‚

  16. Fazal Mayar says:

    That is an awesome plugin but I am not a big fan of autoblogging because it does steal somehow our content and I know it does create backlinks for us…but I kinda think this kind of way to generate revenue shouldn’t be allowed.

  17. Abhik says:

    Well, The plugin surely sounds a good one, but I think it’s overpriced.

  18. Tilen says:

    Interesting. I might try this.

  19. This kind of plugins can work, but you have to be carefull with the kind of keywords you use with it.
    Usually, you have to use keywords that are long enough as to be descriptive of your intended content, but if you go too long tail, it will not find anything good.
    If you are going to use this, you have to monitor your content constantly to make sure you are generating the content you want.

  20. Jon says:

    Well I am glad that most of us agree that plugins like this are not good for a long term website that wants to be taken seriously. But at least this post got some good conversation going. Nothing like a little controversy to get the ball rolling.

  21. Google are cracking down on auto-content sites, so this is a bad idea if you care about your ranking/s in Google.

  22. WTF says:

    has anyone used these auto-content/blog type plugins? any luck using it? by the sound of the above comments, may not be the best idea

  23. Gadget-Zoom says:

    Autoblogging is always interesting for some people that They can make post automatically just a second with best topic. But, be carefull for duplicate content. There is some effort to make it original, like you edit it or just install revision plugin. The bottom line, I don’t like the autoblogging. Most of black hatters (called for autoblogging person) get a trouble in the future. I still keep in my mind that Blog is art of writing… πŸ˜€

  24. Jim says:

    I don’t feel like it is a good thing especially with the recent Google algorithm changes. And I think it is better to have a control on your content so even if I spend hours doing it, I prefer to do it by myself

  25. Please let’s just make the internet a better place by avoiding automatic blogs………..

  26. Although I am not a fan of autoblogs, I know people who made and still make money with them. Yes, even now, after the new algo update. But they mostly use spinners they have either coded or fine-tuned themselves, so as not to pull that much nonsense content. So, do a little research before putting a plugin on autopilot.

  27. Elva LEE says:

    WOW…. It’s cool!

    John, would you have a conversation with Turbo admin for a little more discount.

    I’ll take it with no hesitate if the price is $80 – $90.


  28. sneha says:

    great post about plugin i have not tried this before would like to try it out

  29. i have used plugin in wordpress but dnt know to use in blogspot

  30. singer divya says:

    it is great resource to have more no.of sites from same account.

  31. I had my share of using autoblogs which were actually earning, But I believe this is not a good long term business model since we all know how much google hates auto generated content.

  32. Richard says:

    Have not tried autoblogging. I have enough on my plate already.

    1 website and 1 blog. Thats all I concentrate and focus on. Traffic and more traffic to build my list.

  33. anitha says:

    wordpress plugin is the best way to reduce the updating work

  34. wordpress plugins are really useful tools

  35. Autoblogging is great and this product looks good how does it compare to WPRobot? I think that is a pretty robust autoblogging program to use.


  36. great resource, it will helpful to create a niche site, thanks good sharing mate.
