Content generation and more.
At the moment, I use wp-robot just for rss feeds for one of my websites. It's "ok" but it's a bit messy. WP-Robot was probably a poor product choice for me. I'm not a pure "autoblogger". My site has fresh content from the forum and I write my own posts as well. I get a lot of traffic. I'm a bit of a 'hybrid' blogger.
Here's the problem:
I don't have the time to write a blog post every day and I don't have the money to pay a writer. I still need fresh content on my site. Sports news happens by the minute and I want my site to have this news available even if it's from espn, fox sports, local new papers, etc.
What should I do? Should I create a section just below my "Featured Posts" area that contains links/titles to "Steelers News from around the web". Should I make sure that these posts don't get indexed by google to avoid a SEO penalty?
Really need some help here.
Thanks in advance.
On a unrelated note, I keep hearing the duplicate content will get you penalized by Google. How does sites like the Huffington Post get away with it and still rank very high?
