CyberSEO Lite – RSS, News Feeds, Video Feeds, Autoblogging, SEO and More! – WordPress plugin
CyberSEO Lite (former CyberSyn) is a simplified version of CyberSEO Pro – the most advanced but easy-to-use auto-blogging and content curation plugin for WordPress. CyberSEO Lite is a powerful RSS aggregator which is intended to import RSS feeds and automatically generate WordPress posts for your website. The plugin is equipped with unique and very powerful software tools that you may find in premium solutions only.
At the current moment, CyberSEO Lite is the only open-source freeware RSS aggregation plugin which is able to extract full-text articles from shortened RSS feeds, translate the articles from/to over 100 languages with Google Translate and Yandex Translate services, spin it with 3rd-party content spinners* and more. All these features are 100% free and available right after activation of the plugin. No catches, no hidden fees, no limitations!
* Important notice regarding 3rd-party content spinners
In accordance with the WordPress policy, the content spinning scripts can not be hosted at wordpress.org. Thus you have to manually download the spinners.zip archive from this page, unpack it and upload the contained spinners.php file into the /wp-content/plugins/cybersyn folder of your site.
Don’t worry, it’s a freeware GPL script, so it’s not a premium (paid) module. Just download it, unpack and upload it into the same folder at your site where cybersyn.php is located, and the content spinning feature will become instantly available.
