CB Automator Review – You Can’t Use This

By Ray Alexander

If you want to make a decent success in content marketing, don't use this software. CB Automator is a WordPress plugin that helps you build an affiliate marketing website easily. But it has one critical problem; duplicates someone else's website content, which will do nothing but harm your search engine ranking.

Not being so techie myself, hats-off to the creator who must have put in a lot of genius effort to this product - this is not some overpriced PDF guide, this is a software. But the whole idea is wrong. In my CB Automator review, I'll explain what kind of features it has and whether it's worth the money.

What Is CB Automator?

So this is a WordPress plugin that can build a complete product review site "within 60 seconds". It will pick one ClickBank product per day and make a copy of someone else's review post including images and YouTube video, and add a CTA button with your affiliate link. All you have to do is to publish the post.

In short, it will create a blog post so quickly for you by plagiarizing other people's work.

It has some other features such as banners and automatic share on social media. The pro version can integrate with some article spinner tool, which will mask your plagiarized content but turn it unreadable instead. Either way, your finished review posts using CB Automator will harm your website both in terms of SEO rankings and reputation in the long term.

While this may be a technically very well-made plugin, it misses the whole point of content marketing. I'll explain this a little more in detail.

CB Automator Review

Why Is It So Bad?

Well, there's no such thing as a blog post creation "without any writing". While AI technology is not just 'intelligent' enough yet, millions of content marketers strive to write unique and original articles, find the most relevant keywords and try to come up with the most effective headlines manually. Day-in, day-out.

What CB Automator does is simply pick some relevant webpages and copy the paragraphs onto your page word by word. Copied content will be quite severely penalized by Google and any other search engines. It means not only will it have a negative impact on your site but on the original websites' rankings. By using CB Automator, you'll actually be damaging someone else's work.

And of course, they can easily find your plagiarized content by using a detector tool and submit a legal removal request to Google. Your site with multiple copied pages will unlikely to have a chance of survival in SERP if that happens.

CB Automator users have all been creating identical pages since the product went on sale and, the results you find on a plagiarism detector are pretty horrifying, as you can see in the screenshot below.

Copied sites

Article Spinners Are Useless

Article spinning doesn't work. If you have ever used spinner (automatic paraphrasing) tools, you know how useless they are. They simply replace almost every other word of every sentence with a synonym, making it totally unreadable.

The Pro version of CB Automator can integrate with article spinner tools, turning stolen content into an original. It may avoid a legal claim but the unreadable content will also suffer SEO ranking. Even if it ranked at a decent position, obviously there's no way a review article that doesn't make sense would convince anyone to buy a product!

Over-Exaggerated Sales Page

I've noticed a lot of stuff that's being said in the sales page is misleading, such as;

It picks the best selling ClickBank products

So does everyone. So it's competitive. There are numerous product reviews for every bestseller in SERP already. Your copied content created by CB Automator is about a bestseller doesn't necessarily mean it will sell.

Plus, it doesn't take you a second to pick the best selling products on ClickBank manually - leave the search box blank and click "search". It will list up in that order.

"Special Bonuses" WordPress themes

CB Automator Bonuses

It simply recommends users to use two of the free WordPress themes - "Sidebar" and "Marinate". They can be downloaded free via WordPress admin whether you use CB Automator or not. They're not bonuses, they simply recommend these two themes. And it should really have decency to explain why these themes are the best among others - it doesn't, unfortunately.

The value of the bonuses doesn't make sense either. In the beginning, it says it's $597, but it says "Total bonuses worth $397 are yours!"

There are 3 x bonus materials. One is an "Easy Passive Income" training worth $199. Other two are free. They don't add up!

"Mobile-Friendly"

It had better be! Things that make a website mobile non-responsive should no longer be sold. Mobile-friendliness is nothing special. In fact this is misleading because if you used this plugin but still used an outdated WordPress theme, it wouldn't be mobile friendly.

Potential income claim

CB Statements

The sales page is focused on the large amount of potential income that you may be able to achieve. But in my opinion it's overly exaggerating. The phrase "Launch in seconds to start earning commission" implies as if the money's coming in as soon as you publish a post, which will never be the case. It claims that the plugin will get you to earn on the first day - I doubt it.

The screenshot of ClickBank commission statements...I very much doubt that these are the results of using CB Automator. It's just a WordPress plugin that will highly unlikely to take your product review posts to the top of SERP because of the copied content.

"100% Newbie Friendly"

The shiny object calls in the sales page such as "make sales while having a beer on the beach", "this site will take care of your car payments or your loans" show that CB Automator is obviously targeted at brand new affiliate marketers. And if they're brand new, they may not know the fact that duplicate content triggers a negative impact to their SEO rankings.

First 30 Posts Only

The basic price only allows you to publish 30 x posts. You'll have to pay $27 each month for it to work afterward.

Refund Policy - NOT 100% Guarantee

"No questions asked refund" is NOT offered, which sounds fairly reasonable because of the nature of the product - it's a downloadable plugin. But stating '100%' guarantee is misleading.

You can claim your refund within 30 days of purchase, but you have to provide a valid reason and show them proof that "you did everything they told you to do". This is unclear, and unfair, considering the earlier descriptions such as totally newbie friendly and commissions coming in "while you're having a beer on the beach" which gives an impression that you don't have to do much at all.

CB Automator Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Low cost to start.
  • Live training as a bonus.

Cons

  • Creates duplicate content - bad for SEO.
  • 30-day money back policy is dubious.
  • Unlikely to help you make money.

CB Automator Review: Conclusion

Well, it's not for me because content marketing is about producing something unique that helps people, and if that's taken away, I won't be enjoying it. If you don't like writing product reviews, then there are plenty of other ways to make money as an affiliate. You don't have to stick to the 'review blog' method but steal other people's content.


If you are interested in learning sales funnels to promote high-ticket products, I would recommend Legendary Marketer.


If you are interested in promoting ClickBank products using Facebook Ads, Commission Hero is my recommendation - not cheap, but it works.

  1. I was scammed by people who sold me 3 articles used by article spinners. I didn’t understand too much of it because it was about technology but all 3 of the articles were rejected. They said they were used article spinners because words were un-natural. I lost 75 dollars. How can I know it was written by a real person?

    1. Hi Adam, I don’t know what kind of position you are in…reselling articles to bloggers? Spun articles are pretty easy to spot. If you don’t understand the content purely because it’s technical, perhaps you could google it? Otherwise I would reject any articles that I don’t understand myself though. Good luck!

  2. A very helpful review. I tend to get blinded by shiny objects but at least I google now first before I buy. Your review was authentic and very helpful.
    I have to mention though that form on the blue banner doesn't seem to work anymore.

  3. CB Automator is a very good tool. It is useful for everyone. but specially if you are new to internet business it is the most useful. If you are looking for a good online marketing software for cheap prices, you should definitely get CB Automator. Anyone can contact me.

  4. I tried this but a lot of things don’t work. It does not show photos etc etc and it get’s stuck in the middle of doing something. Don’t buy it does not work.

  5. You are right, Ray. I find a lot of sites with duplicate content using CB automator.
    I checked to see which one was the original but there are quite many. None of them is ranked well. One to avoid, the same seller has already released another product since. A blind squirrel trying to get a nut.

  6. It’s a scam. It doesn’t work. You need to pay more for it to work. I asked for a refund but I have not received a reply. It’s not fair it said guarantee before I bought it. It’s a scam don’t buy it.

    1. Hi Cody, thanks for your comment. Sorry to hear about the trouble getting your money back. One disadvantage of Warrior Plus products is that they don’t help the buyers claim refunds, so you might have to repeatedly send messages to the seller until they respond. I hope he will, good luck!

    2. I paid more money for CB Automator and found out it was a total garbage… I was hoping to go somewhere better as I haven’t had any income since i lost my job. I am more desperate now I cannot make this thing work. What is it I’m doing wrong and how can i fix?

  7. Hi Ray, I totally agree with you on duplicate content. It’s one of the reasons I once quit content marketing back in 2014. Google used to allow it and many affiliate marketers including myself had multiple websites with copied content. This black hat SEO method’s been penalized for 5 years now, it’s the creator’s ignorance for selling this product. It’s alright to have your own site harmed but the method will harm the original resources. The product itself should be banned.

    1. Hello, thanks for your comment and advice. I absolutely agree with you, it’s a black hat SEO and it hasn’t worked for a long time. The product will cause troubles with other content marketing blogs.

  8. CB Automator is the best plugin for WordPress. I recommend it to anybody who is willing to succeed in online marketing. You don’t have to spend hours or even days of struggling to create your own blogs. You don’t have to have any previous experiences in online marketing.
    CB Automator is great for both companies and individuals. It is particularly suitable for affiliate marketing. You will know once you use it. I am 100% happy with CB Automator.

  9. Hi Ray, I was wondering about that. I’m glad I checked your review because all others say it’s good but how about a duplicate content issue? I was right, this software defeats the purpose, it doesn’t work. You saved me. Thanks!

  10. I agree with this review. I was reading other reviews written by affiliates who all said CB Automator makes it easy to rank in Google which is a rubbish claim. Hello, never heard of the Google algorithm? Content spinners are all rubbish, programs like this never work. Don’t buy it.

    1. Hi Cameron, thanks for your comment. Not every product owner has good knowledge in SEO, or they may simply ignore that element, so when they talk about ranking it often doesn’t make sense, sadly…

  11. Hi, thank you for your review. It is interesting because we can find many positive reviews of CB Automator out there but many of them are written by their affiliates. We were looking for fair and unbiased reviews.
    We agree with your opinion about duplicate contents that harm your website more than anything else. We are happy to read your review and confirm this with our associates and students in our organisation. Thank you.

  12. This product is a scam. You cannot do anything unless you buy a pro version 47 dollars plus monthly membership 27 dollars every single month! Also it costs domain, web hosting autoresponder etc, etc. It’s not for new affiliate marketers.
    Also testimonials are fake because Warrior Plus sellers team up with each other to make fake testimonials so people will believe. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

    1. Hi Dev, thanks for the info. Yes, you’re right, testimonials on Warrior Plus products are not always trustworthy…unfortunately. It will cost you more than expected, and it’s not clarified on the sales page. Thanks for your input, I appreciate it.
