At its base, WP Robot is a WordPress plug-in that allows you to automatically generate posts for your WordPress site. At its extreme, WP Robot is an automation marvel that gives you the ability fill your site with Amazon products, eBay auction information, YouTube videos, Yahoo News and much, much more.
WP Robot begins with a keyword or phrase of your choice. This is a critical factor that you have to work with based on the focus of your Web site. There are some basic guidelines that are outlined on the WP Robot website that will help you get started, but each instance is derived from this keyword.
Once you have the keyword, depending on the modules that you have purchased, you choose which to enable. Then you set a category that you want the post to appear in, and how often you want WP Robot to generate a post. This can be as quickly as once an hour or as long as every so many days.
While I will have a more complete breakdown later in this review, there are a number of ways that you can purchase WP Robot. With three types of cores and ten modules, as well as a developer's version, there are a lot of combinations that you can use to create your package. In my case, I am reviewing the WP Robot Elite which contains all ten modules along with the Elite Core.
What are the ten modules? Amazon, Article, eBay, ClickBank, Yahoo Anwsers, YouTube, Translation, Flickr Image, Yahoo News, and RSS modules. For all but the Article, YouTube, and Translation modules, you will want to have an account ID to use and/or make money from this information.
What do you need to run WP Robot? Well primarily you need a Web site that is running on WordPress 2.7 or greater; while the author believes that it will run on earlier versions, it has not been tested on them. If you need to run it on an earlier version, there is a free demo version you can use to test it out. You also need to be running on PHP5 with cURL as well. This should be pretty standard on most hosting platforms.
If you buy the complete version, installation is pretty easy as you can either upload the expanded WP Robot directory to your Web site, or upload the Zip via your install plugins screen. If you purchase individual modules, you will need to FTP them to the location of the core version you bought (or there is a free core available if you did not buy one).
