April 19th in Wordpress Plugins by .

As a WordPress webmaster, you will have to wear multiple hats. Unfortunately, there are only 24 hours each day. Auto plugins for WordPress can help you automate certain tasks and save yourself some time in the process. You do not want to automate everything. Keeping an eye on your automated processes is a must too. These 10 WordPress automation plugins and services can just make your life as a webmaster less painful:

Hootsuite: want to post your latest WordPress posts to LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter? You can’t go wrong with this social media web application.

Autoblogged: want to turn RSS feeds into blog posts? It is highly customizable and supports post filtering and regular expressions. Just make sure you own the content you feed to this plugin.

WP Robot: designed for those of you into auto-blogging. It can add content from Amazon, eBay, and other sites to your website. You should still create your own unique content even if you decide to use this plugin to get results.

BackWPup: a powerful plugin that can backup your WordPress database and files to the cloud. It can also perform maintenance on your database.

Postalicious: a handy script that sends your bookmarks on Delicious, Reddit, and other bookmarking sites to your WP posts.

Automatic Youtube Video Posts: want to automatically add your YouTube videos to your WordPress website? This plugin does just that and can save you a lot of time in the process.

Please note that I do not advocate auto-blogging and other black and gray hat SEO tactics by any means. So use the above tools wisely.

I don't know about that. 🙂 Automation is very dangerous and can hurt your business and brand. In fact, I am completely against it. This article was prepared because we were asked by our readers to cover this topic. It should not be taken as an endorsement for this practice 🙂
