CyberSEO Lite (CyberSyn)

Description

CyberSEO Lite is a simplified version of CyberSEO Pro – the most advanced but easy-to-use auto-blogging and content curation plugin for WordPress. It is intended to import RSS and Atom feeds and automatically convert the content into WordPress posts at your site. 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 plugin which is able to extract full text articles from shortened 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.

Features:

  • Generate WordPress posts from Atom/RSS feeds and run your site on autopilot.
  • Spin post content with WordAI, SpinnerChief and SpinRewriter 3rd-party services*.
  • Assign a WPML language code to generated posts.
  • Embed media attachments (images and videos) into the posts.
  • Embed videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, IGN, Ustream.tv and DailyMotion RSS feeds. Just enable the “Embed videos” option and the plugin will embed videos with descriptions directly into your posts.
  • Generate featured images (post thumbnails) from post images or media attachments.
  • Full Text RSS extractor is 100% free and allows you to import full-text articles. This feature is based on freeware GPL library by fivefilters.org. This built-in feature works right out of the box. No 3rd-party services or paid API keys.
  • Hotlink post images or upload them to your host.
  • Translate the syndicated articles from and to more than 100 languages via free Yandex Translate and premium Google Translate services.
  • Advanced RSS/Atom parsing algorithm has the ability to pull the feeds fully automatically. Furthermore, you can assign the updating period to each particular feed. Also you can set up a maximum number of posts that will be syndicated at once. This is a very useful feature for SEO of your blogs.
  • Adjustable post duplicate check by GUID, post title or both.
  • Import articles as drafts or publish them immediately.
  • Automatically assign post categories and tags.
  • Attribute generated posts to selected authors.
  • Shorten post excerpts by a given lenght.
  • Add a user-defined HTML code (custom footers) to every syndicated post.
  • Convert character encoding if the source feed has a non UTF-8 one. E.g. KOI8-R, KOI8-U, Windows-1251, Windows-1256, Windows-1255 etc. Thus the plugin is compatible with all existing national character encoding systems.
  • The plugin can be scheduled by a server-side cron and by WordPress pseudo-cron.

  • Import with ease XML feeds of any format into WordPress posts and pages. The internal structure of XML feeds is recognized and parsed automatically.

Yeah, you heard me. This is the best plugin for aggregating content. I'm using with all my clients for news clipping and they're loving it! Also, the support is very fast! So, I will purchase this piece of art in the next month. You have my word, Sir! Great work, thanks!

Can't appreciate the author of this plugin enough. It is a stellar plugin in every respect and is updated on a regular basis, constantly adding functionalities and improving each time. And I know for sure that it is being used by a lot of top websites. This is how a great WP plugin should be. Cheers Sir for the great work and I plan to buy your Pro version on my next project for sure. Thanks!

I provide syndicated content to Apple professionals, many of whom use WordPress and rely on CyberSEO Lite to bring our content into their sites. It works well, and the developer was extremely responsive when we recently identified a bug with obscure srcset URLs and local images (it was linking to the remote URL, not the local one; that's now fixed).

This plugin covers my RSS import needs and is easy to set up. I asked about a feature in the support forum and it got added a few days later in the next release. Great job!

This plugin is awesome. I had tried several auto-blogging plugins before coming across CyberSEO Lite (CyberSyn) and its performance really blew me away. The Full RSS extractor works very well, allowing full-text and images from articles to be imported to my blog. Everything works perfectly out of the box, while still giving the user a variety of customization options. The support team is also great, promptly offering assistance when needed. Thanks and Thumbs up CyberSEO team.
