If you do not already have Hostjester Hosting, I do not recommend buying Auto Blog Syndicate. It appears that the product only works with Hostjester, just another way for them to rake in commissions when people are forced to pay for their hosting. I emailed support twice, I then opened a support ticket through Clickbank – didn’t even get a response to that. I finally requested a refund on February 11, 2011.
I wish I could have given you more, and had I received the support I requested, I may have been able to review the product.

If you don’t know be by know, you will learn that I will never put a review page up if I don’t have the product myself.
When you look at reviews, you can usually tell right away when they really don’t have access to the product. When all of the reviews look the same, you know that they all got their information from the JV Partner site.

I want to be fair to Tom Lucas, creator of Auto Blog Syndicate, so I am giving him a chance to reply to my email before I give a full review.
After my purchase yesterday, I immediately bought a domain name so that I could test out the software to give you an honest review (that you probably won’t find anywhere else on the internet), and when I tried to use the software, it gave me an error message. There is a link in the training section for those people who don’t have hosting, or who are having trouble. I clicked on it. It took me to a page that said they only provide support to those people who use Hostjester for their hosting.
My first thought was, why on earth would you create a software that is only compatible with Hostjester? Hell, I’ve never even heard of them. I personally use Hostmonster, and I know that many people use Hostgator, so why not make it compatible with 2 of the biggest hosting companies? I figured they were trying to get commissions for people who sign up for hosting through Hostjester. I may have been wrong. The link for you to sign up for a hosting account is not an affiliate link. It it the actual domain name for Hostjester?!
I emailed support, and I am still waiting for a reply. If they reply back and tell me that I have to use Hostjester, I may go ahead and pay hosting for a month or two so that I can try out this software. We’ll see what the reply is from their support team.
The actual software is supposed to be very easy to use. It automatically adds content and videos to your blog using related keywords.
There were some upsells, including free websites and videos that I did not purchases. You should know that there is really no training included. Only simple steps to get you using the software. It does not tell you how to research keywords, find domain names, or any of the other topics that some affiliate marketers have trouble with.
I will keep you posted so that I can let you know about this hosting situation. Hopefully, I can get a site going soon to give you a complete review and case study of Auto Blog Syndicate.
It is now Monday, February 7, 2011. 3 full days after my purchase of Auto Blog Syndicate. As I mentioned above, I emailed their support twice. Today, I opened a ticket with Clickbank to give them one more chance to solve my problem.
I am giving them the benefit of the doubt, as I know they probably received many support emails considering that others are probably having the same problem that I am.
I will keep you updated.
Unfortunately, this is the end of my review. I never received a reply from Auto Blog Syndicate support, so I requested a refund Friday.
