SEO Content Machine Review
One of the harder things about running one or more Websites is creating content for them. You need content for your visitors to see something, but you also need content so the search engines will know what your site is about. Writing content is a lot of work; I own some 50 Websites and I do a lot of writing.
SEO Content Machine says they can help with that, as their software creates quality content automatically. Not only that, but it can find content, create it, add photos and links, and upload it to your blog or Website automatically.
That sounded interesting, so I thought I’d take a look and see if the software is all they say it is. Is SEO Content Machine a scam, or can it help?

SEO Content Machine Overview
Unlike a lot of Website software these days, SEO Content Machine is designed to run on your desktop, rather than on the Web. It’s designed to run on Windows, but will also run on the Mac OS, provided that you’re using emulator software, such as Parallels.
You can download a 5 day free trial to get started. After five days, SEO Content Machine will require payment for you to continue using it.
What SEO Content Machine is designed to do is to find “snippets” or small pieces of content, from various places around the Web, such as search engines and article directories. These snippets are found by searching for content using a list of keywords that you provide.
You paste the words into the SEO Content Machine wizard and select the content sources that you’d like to use (there are dozens) and tell it how many articles you need. Then you can either run the program right away or schedule it to run later.
If you don’t have a list of keywords, SEO Content Machine will create one for you, as the software has a built-in “Find Long Tail Keywords” tool.
When it’s running, SEO Content Machine will search the Web, find the pieces of content, download it, and assemble it into articles that are ready to upload to your Website or blog. The software is compatible with both WordPress installations and Blogger blogs, making it useful for just about everyone.
You can also incorporate spinner software into the articles to make them more unique. There’s a built-in spinner, but SEO Content Machine will work better if you use third-party spinning software, such as The Best Spinner or Spin Rewriter.
The spinner will make substitutions for some words and phrases in the article to make it more unique. You can post the finished articles directly to your site, or you can schedule the article to be posted automatically at a time of your choosing.
You can also add links and photos to your articles to make them look as natural as possible. You can insert the photos yourself, or you can have SEO Content Machine find them for you automatically. You can choose where the links and the photos appear in the article and you can choose the anchor text for the articles.
One other nice thing about SEO Content Machine is that it doesn’t necessarily have to create content in English. It can create content in any Western language that uses a standard alphabet, and you can tell it which version of Google that you’d like it to use. There’s also a translation tool that you can use to either translate English articles to another language, to translate another language to English, or you can translate back and forth simply as a way to make the content more unique.
Using SEO Content Machine is quite easy, but if you can’t figure out how to use it, there are numerous tutorial videos and there’s also a user forum.
SEO Content Machine is designed to work with automated link-building software such as GSA SER and Senuke, two programs that can help provide backlinks to your Website to help you rank more highly in the search engines. Those pieces of software work well, but work better if you have a lot of unique content for them to work with, and SEO Content Machine is designed to work with both of them, making those pieces of software even more powerful.
SEO Content Machine can also create high-quality “Tier 1” content designed for your main Website, or “money site.” I found that this feature needed a lot of fine tuning, and that you’ll end up spending a lot of time to get the software to create truly readable content that your site visitors would think was written by humans.
Other people may get better results than I did, as I didn’t spend a lot of time testing that feature and as I type nearly 100 words a minute, I can create unique Tier 1 content more quickly just by banging it out the old fashioned way.
For backlinking content to be posted to blogs, Web 2.0 properties, social media and article directories, the content provided by SEO Content Machine is more than adequate, and the ability to have the software do it automatically in the background and to have it post it automatically to your Website is a huge plus.
In addition to the issues with the Tier 1 content creation, I also had the software crash on me once or twice, but as the SEO Content Machine team updates the software four or more times a month, I suspect that most issues of that variety will be resolved quickly, especially since there’s a button within the software that you can use to contact the support team directly.
Pricing for SEO Content Machine is as follows:
- Free 5 day trial
- $27 per month
- $118 per year
Pros and Cons of SEO Content Machine
- Runs on Windows or Mac OS (with an emulator)
- Creates content and uploads it to your site automatically
- Tier 1 content is still a bit awkward
- Occasional crashes
SEO Content Machine Summary
If you regularly create content for one or more blogs, you know that any tool that can help you speed up the process would be welcome. Most content creation software is hard to use, doesn’t work well or is very expensive.
SEO Content Machine does an OK job, especially for Tier 2 or Tier 3 content and is easy to use and comes with tutorials and several wizards to speed up the process. The software will run on most computers and is affordably priced.
If you need a lot of content and you need it quickly and want it posted to your site automatically, complete with links and photos, then SEO Content Machine is likely a good choice for you.
SEO Content Machine is recommended.
