CyberSEO Lite (also known as CyberSyn) is a simplified version of CyberSEO Pro. It’s a powerful RSS aggregator which is intended to automatically generate WordPress posts and pages from RSS and Atom feeds. The plugin is equipped with unique and very powerful software tools that you may find in premium solutions only.

At the current moment, CyberSEO Lite is the only freeware RSS aggregation plugin which is able to extract full-text articles from shortened RSS feeds, translate the articles from/to over 100 languages with Google Translate and Yandex Translate services, spin it with 3rd-party content spinners and more. All these features are 100% free and available right after activation of the plugin. No catches, no hidden fees, no paid add-ons, no unlockable limitations!

We value your freedom!

According to the new tightened WordPress policy, all plugins that allow a webmaster to directly insert any fragments of HTML, JavaScript or PHP code, as well as CSS are not accepted in the official repository. Here is the official statement from

We’re saying IF your plugin allows people to insert arbitrary HTML/JS/etc, then it is not currently permitted for new plugins.
We are actively working with the older plugins to retire them or improve them and make them safer.
Since that’s an ongoing process, and has been for a couple years, we’ve only closed a couple. We’re trying not to break existing users, while still protecting them from what has become one of the biggest vectors for kiddie hackers

WordPress Plugin Review Team

We don’t agree with this kind of policy as well as with any restrictions. Freedom of creativity is our top priority. For this reason, we have refused to limit the functionality of our plugin for the sake of publishing it in the repository. From now this site is the only place where you can always download the latest version of the plugin for free, as well as get all the necessary technical support.
