RSStoBlog Pro

RSStoBlog is a very handy piece of software. In summary, it’s an automated blog poster and this week the new version came out adding lots of functionality.

What can you use it for:

Wpburner is an automated blog and ping service. They have lots of WordPress blogs set up they crawl your site and post links to your pages on their blogs. You just put in the domain and how many pages you want crawled and you are done.

A lot of their blogs have been around for a while, so they have link popularity (or PageRank for you that still like it). Getting some external links from their popular blogs must help along with the blog and ping process. The downside is that it can get expensive if you B&P lots of pages.

Directory Generator

Directory Generator is one of the most popular page generators on the net now. It’s even “patent pending” altough I don’t think getting a patent with this kind of thing would be easy. Oh well, a sales letter has to be a sales letter.

A lot of people use Direcotry Generator, as I always find backlinks to most of my sites from a DG site and even some clickthroughs. It generates pages by scraping search engine results as usual. The price is not bad although a bit more than what I would like. On the sales page you will see “This software IS NOT FOR EVERYONE and I don’t want it to be!” , my opinion is that it is suited for everyone much more than the average page generator.

Speeding up site creation with WHM

If you are building a lot of sites on reseller accounts you will see that you always have to FTP the some same files for each domain. They might be Traffic Equalizer files, other scripts, templates etc.
Here’s a nifty trick to avoid this step.

You got to your WHM panel and look for “Account Functions” on the left menu. Under “Account Functions” you should see “Skeleton Directory”. Click on that and you will go to a page that tells you where your skeleton directory is.

AWS sites

I wanted to make a website with thousands of pages lately but not a usual scraper site. That’s because I want to try a big site with DigitalPoint Ad Coop and they didn’t approve some of my scraper sites. Now having a site with a lot of weight in the COOP can help you get new sites indexed, which undoubtedly we all want. Another important thing is that you can sell it for money.

Watching a bit the auctions on Digital Point you can see a lot of AWS (amazon web services) sites being sold. So I decided I’ll built a bunch of those, which will make me a couple thousands when I sell them after the next PR update and in the meanwhile help me get new sites indexed.
