Kontent Machine is a software application that aims to allow you to generate unique and relevant content. This content can then be used as part of your link building strategy to help improve the rank of your website in search engines.
The fact that Kontent Machine integrates with some of the most popular link building tools available, has made it a popular choice amongst internet marketers and those building backlinks as part of the SEO services they offer.
In this review of Kontent Machine 3, we will take a look at some of the features of this software and see how easy it is to use; as well as evaluating the quality of the content that it is able to generate.
What Can Kontent Machine Do?
Kontent Machine allows you to easily generate content for use in your link building campaigns. Once generated, this content can be published on websites, including Web 2.0 properties, or your private blog network, with each article containing links back to your website.
However, if you are using any of the link building tools that can automate the process of publishing content in order to create backlinks for your websites, Kontent Machine allows you to make those tools even more effective and convenient to use. By supplying you with an unlimited stream of content, you need never write, or pay for, SEO articles again.
The way Kontent Machine manages to create this seemingly unique content is by scraping articles that have been published online. This content is then spun, or rewritten, to make it appear like a new article. Taking things one step further, Kontent Machine, then combines these newly created articles in order to make them as unique as possible, or at least appear that way to the search engines.
Kontent Machine is also able to automatically add images and videos to the content it generates, to make it appear of an even higher quality and more unique. Furthermore, the software is also able to handle the insertion of the links to your site, preventing you from even having to do this task.
If this all sounds too good to be true, read on to find out how easy the software is to use, and what the quality of the generated content is like.
How Does Kontent Machine Work?
Any software that claims to be able to generate unique content and articles, which also contain relevant images and videos, might sound like a case of exaggerated marketing. So to help determine if this tool can really deliver it on its claims, let’s take a look at how it works by walking through the process for setting up a new campaign with Kontent Machine.
Once you’ve loaded up Kontent Machine for the first time, you can get stated by creating a new campaign. When creating the campaign you can choose where the content will be sourced.
The four options are:
- Built-In Article Scraper
- Built-In Article Scraper + Local Files
- Locally Saved Files
- The Leading Articles marketplace
You can then enter up to three keywords to let the software know which topic you would like the generated content to focus on. In most cases, the first option will be used, unless you already have articles on your computer that you want to use.
You can also set a quality level for the content, with the choices being tier 1, 2, or 3. Alternatively you can create your own custom quality levels by editing the settings. If you are building tiered backlinks then this feature will be of interest to you. However, for most users it will be preferable to use tier 1 for producing content of the highest level of quality available.
As the software can spin the content it scrapes to make it unique, Kontent Machine integrates with a number of spinning tools including:
- Spinner Chief
- Spin Chimp
- Spin Rewriter
- The Best Spinner
- Word Ai
However, it also comes with its own built in spinning tool if you don’t have access to one of the above services. There is also the option to manually spin the content for those who want a high level of control over how their content is spun. While this is very time consuming, if done correctly it can result in very high quality and unique content.
When setting up the campaign you can also choose if you would like videos and images to be inserted into the articles that are generated. There are a few different configuration options for using images and videos including inserting both, just one of the two, or choosing them at random. Other options include setting how many paragraphs the content should contain, and other formatting considerations.
The next step is to enter the links that will be inserted into the generated articles. These are the links that will be pointing back to the site you are trying to rank higher in the search engines. The options for inserting the links include:
- Contextual Links
- Article Body Links
- Resource Box Links
- Image Links
For the three text link options above, you can also set the number of links of each type per article.
To help the anchor text of your backlink profile look as natural as possible, Kontent Machine allows you to enter multiple anchor texts for each URL you are linking to. These keywords are spun to ensure that each time a link is published to your site, a different anchor text is used.
You can also add branded anchor text and naked URLs, and then set a percentage of how many times Kontent Machine should use those branded keywords or URLs as the anchor text when inserting the links. A further option is to set the ratio for whether these links should be tagged as nofollow or not.
These features are a great way to prevent your backlinks being over optimized, which is a sure fire way to see your site penalized by Google and lose its position in their index.
Kontent Machine is not finished yet, you can also add a list of other sites that should be linked to from the articles that are generated. This can include other authority sites from your niche, such as Wikipedia entries, government or education sites, related products on Amazon, or other prominent bloggers. This is a good feature to make use of to make it less obvious that the generated content has only been published to provide a link back to your site.
Once you’ve completed the above steps, you can then instruct the software to generate or build the content. There is also an option to build and export the content for those that are using this software in tandem with one of the link building applications which can publish this content for you, such as Licorne AIO.
The content generation process is pretty quick, and a status bar is displayed to inform you that the software is working away in the background.
Once the job is completed, you can then preview the content and see how it looks. If you didn’t opt to export the content into a link building tool, you get the opportunity to do so again after previewing the articles.
To be honest, using the tier 1 quality and the built-in spinner, the content wasn’t very readable. However, all the links, images, and videos were added according to the settings. Although by using a more advanced spinning tool, such as The Best Spinner, you would probably be able to achieve better results.
So while you wouldn’t want to publish this content on any of your ‘real’ websites, it would probably be fine to use it on sites that are linking to your real sites. Or perhaps to be on the safe side, use it to build backlinks to the higher quality sites that are linking to your real sites in a tiered link building structure.
Depending on which SEO link building software you choose to use this generated content with, you get access to a set of further options in Kontent Machine that are specific to that software to give you full control over how the content is exported.
When you are ready, you can press the Build & Export button to create the content files on your computer. Depending on the link building software you are using, this could include all the individual articles, plus everything else that is required by that link building software to create the types of links it is capable of producing.
Once you’ve generated your first set of content, you can save the settings as a blueprint, which can be loaded the next time you use Kontent Machine, preventing you from having to configure the software for your campaign again.
Other Features of Kontent Machine
While creating content to be published online is the main purpose of this software, Kontent Machine also has a few other features and tools.
The other tools of Kontent Machine 3 include:
- Bookmark creation
- Article scraper for downloading articles by topic
- About Me spinner for creating multiple unique author boxes
- Bulk spinner for spinning articles on your hard drive and inserting media
- Publish files to websites including WordPress sites and other sites in your network
As you can see, version 3 of Kontent Machine is an easy to use tool. While content generation is the main attraction, being able to spin the content you already have, or just insert links, images and videos into it, before publishing it online via this software; is a really valuable feature to have access to.
Kontent Machine 3 is available with a one-time lifetime fee or a monthly subscription package:
- Kontent Machine Lifetime (No Trial) $217.00
- Kontent machine (No Trial) $37.00 for each one month
If you plan on using this software for more than six months then the lifetime option is the better value choice. You can see the latest pricing options on the signup page.
If you are going down the route of building backlinks in order to help your sites rank in search engines, then a tool like this can really speed up that process.
For those that are using a link building tool, such as GSA Search Engine Ranker or SENuke XCr, the articles that Kontent Machine delivers allow you to use those tools to their full potential, without needing to write your own content, or hiring someone else to do so.
While the content generated won’t be suitable for your primary websites, it has the potential to be used on your secondary web properties, which are then used to link to your income generating websites. However, as with all manual link building, you do run the risk of being penalised by search engines for trying to artificially inflate the rank of your website should your activities be discovered.
To get the most of this software, you will have to combine it with one of the link building tools mentioned earlier. However, by doing so you can quickly and effortlessly build countless contextual links to help your sites rank better, increase the number of visitors, and earn more money.
I hope you found this review useful.
