WordPress MOWG

WordPress MOWG Plugin

wordpress mowgRecently I was given a “heads up” by one of my friends, (let’s call him Larry) about a “WordPress MOWG that would “auto-create” WordPress posts based on vars. In other words a WordPress plug-in that would create pages. It’s called the “Landingpage plugin” and was developed by a Dutch company called “Tussendoor Internet en Marketing”. The Landing Page Plugin has actually been around for a number of years.

The WordPress MOWG plugin is said to do a number of things listed below:

1. Add multiple pages to your WordPress website, on complete autopilot.
2. Uses variables to auto create posts. [var]
3. Build-in interval timer so your posts or pages get created over a period of time. (hours, days, weeks or months).
4. Fully compatible with “All-in-One SEO Pack.

One of the really neat features is that you could create your own “vars” (e.g. from a spun article) and use that as your “post”. The plugin uses the “[var]” tag instead of normal spin syntax {word1|word2|word3}.

So of course as someone interested in Mass Optimization, I had to buy it. The $15.00 it cost seemed very cheap IF it worked as advertised.

After I installed the plugin I decided to take it for a “spin”. (pun intended) The setup is pretty easy, simply upload the plugin from your WP Dashboard and activate as you would any other plugin. Next step is to set the permalinks settings for the plugin. Unfortunately you are required to use “/landingpage” as the first part of your URL. There is no way to avoid this.

The software has a number of known bugs. Page generation interval being one of the big ones. Whenever you set the plugin to generate pages over x amount of hours or days, it defaults back to weeks. This is quite unacceptable unless you don’t really care for page generating speed.

I’ve made a video below that’ll walk you through the steps of setting up this plugin, but as you’ll notice there are a few bugs in the system which cannot be addressed until the end of September 2013 according to the developers. But to be fair, if you have a blog and you wish to auto-post on, this would be a great plugin to use.

Can this auto-poster replace “Regular MOWG”?

Not likely… Creating 20.000 pages will practically “kill” your WordPress website, and WordPress has a know issue where it’ll almost “lock down” and become unresponsive after 50000 pages. You can read more about that here.

The plugin itself is available from Codecanyon here: http://codecanyon.net/item/landingpages/301422

The plugin doesn’t allow the creation of subdomains, which incidentally are some of the strongest pages for MOWG. Especially if you want to target different niches or wish to promote different products from the same domain, sub-domains are your best way to go.

(This is NOT an affiliate link. Even though they DO have an affiliate program, I do not feel comfortable selling this “WordPress MOWG” plugin, because of some replies I found on their comments.)

I simply thought this might be interesting if you don’t need to create too many pages or don’t mind a couple of bugs. There will be an update according to the developer for late September this year.So there you are… Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
