Automatically Import, Compare, Update Prices And Affiliate Products In WordPress – Content Egg Review

Last Updated

There are tons of affiliate networks with excellent partnership programs. Most WordPress owners maintain their site and earn by participating in one or more affiliate programs.

If you have decided to start making money from your blog or website, one of the smartest ways to do this is by entering the niche affiliate marketing arena. Heck, even this site pays its bills thanks to affiliate links.

But most website owners have difficulty to add products from several affiliate networks efficiently and to update prices and affiliate products in WordPress automatically.

They need option to auto updated prices and products or even create set and forget site using autoblogging feature.

You probably manually do all these tasks. From searching product, adding affiliate links, updating price, description, creating comparison deal tables, etc. That is time consuming and tiresome process.

The goal of affiliate sites is to refer a visitor to a product or service and then earn a percentage of any transactions that take place.

Of course, it’s not quite as simple as that. But it is way of generating an income online that has a very low barrier to entry, little technical knowledge needed to get started, and a minimal financial investment required.

When combined with WordPress, affiliate marketing could be the model you are looking for to supplement or even replace your current income stream.

WordPress offers tons of plugins and themes in that field, so it is not hard to find what you need and start building websites using various affiliate networks available.

There are great plugins and themes, free and paid, which practically do the job for you. They auto populate your website with affiliate products in matter of minutes.

You can make deals, review, store, blog, coupon, compare prices site, etc.

 

Update Prices and Affiliate Products in WordPress

There is much more than just populating the website with affiliate products. If you want to succeed there are many aspects you need to follow.

But I will not go into that. That is a too broad topic and will leave it for some other time.

Amazon and Ebay are most popular affiliate networks to target. But there are manymore like Zanox, Affiliate Window, Linkshare, Shareasale, Aliexpress, etc.

When searching plugin for affiliate marketing, I have encountered many plugins and themes which lacked features necessary to build affiliate sites using WordPress.

The main problem is keeping the price of products updated. If you populate your site with affiliate products from various affiliate networks and decide to show price, you understand what pain in the ass can be when prices change.

Finding a plugin that can automatically update prices of affiliate products when they change is like hitting the jackpot.

Sure, there are tons of plugins and themes for Amazon affiliate network that have that feature. But what if I want that option for LinkShare, CJ, Zanox and other affiliate networks products?

Luckily, I finally found a plugin which provides automatic update of affiliate product prices in WordPress site and much more features and options.

 

Content Egg WordPress Plugin Review

Content Egg is a WordPress plugin that allows you to create profitable websites, affiliate websites, price comparison, deals and product reviews.

With few easy steps, you can add images, videos, news, messages from social networks, affiliate links, and products, etc..

Content Egg supports many popular affiliate networks. Photos, videos, product offerings, text content, manuals, social news, etc. Content Egg can auto-populate your posts with all this.

 

content egg review

 

For example, you write a short article review of the new laptop. Depending what modules you have activated additional content like images, products, videos, content will be added automatically by the plugin.

You can also add things manually using plugins. But manually here means only inserting the shortcode. There will be no need to leave your WordPress website dashboard.

Before you can start working with the Content Egg, you need to activate and configure plugin modules. To do this, go to the main menu Content Egg →Settings.

Modules of the free version are Amazon, Pixabay, Google Images (deprecated), Youtube, Commission Junction Links, Freebase, Affili.net Coupons, Related Keywords, RSS Fetcher, Admitad Products, Offer.

You can first try the free version to test it out and see if it is what you need. If you require more affiliate networks (modules), you will need PRO version.

Content Egg PRO has many more affiliate networks, and new ones are continually added. All buyers of PROversion can suggest new modules.

Additional modules of PRO version are Ebay, Zanox, Aliexpress, CJ Products, Affili.net Products, Linkshare, Flickr, Bing Images, Google Books, Google News, Twitter, VK news, Yandex Market, Udemy, Envato, ClickBank, etc.

Modules are divided into Content modules and Affiliate modules. Most modules receive data through official API.

To start using each module from the plugin, you will need to be registered in appropriate services or affiliate networks.

Modules of affiliate programs have various useful options. For example, select only the products with good conversion, specify filters for the minimum commission, lowest price, seller rating, etc.

An important feature of working with partners is to maintain product descriptions up to date. Content Egg automatically does a search for the new products by keyword and update products on the site.

Modules of affiliate programs can update not just all products completely, but also they can automatically update price and some other information about already added products.

 

How is Content Displayed on the Blog?

When you save the post, the data of Content Egg modules is also stored in the standard custom fields of WordPress.

This means, if you wish, you can get this information and use it in your custom modules and plugins.

Default output templates for using Content Egg are provided with the plugin.

There is a set of templates for different modules, but you can also create your own templates.

The data of plugin can be displayed according to the setting of search module:

  • Automatically at the beginning of the post,
  • Automatically at the end of the post,
  • Manually using a shortcode.

When you use shortcode, you can also choose preferred output template. Each shortcode has additional settings.

Content Egg works with any WordPress theme, and with any standard views of blogs or pages.

After setting up and activating desired modules, you will have the option to search and add different content per each enabled module in your posts.

After saving the post, all data of Content Egg plugin will also be stored in the Custom Fields.

By default, the data of Content Egg will be automatically “attached” at the beginning or end of the post when displaying on the site.

You can also manually integrate the content of any module in any place of a post by adding appropriate shortcode in the post.

 

Autoblogging With Content Egg

Content Egg plugin can create sites on autopilot. You only need to type keywords and plugin will find products, images, videos and other content based on your schedule.

Plugin searches and displays relevant content which is a mix from different modules.

Such sites look good and provide value for visitors. They also get traffic from search engines because pages are optimized for keywords.

Your only job is to find right keywords with low competition but with enough product quantity.

Keep in mind that any added text using this plugin is not unique. It is duplicate content. You may want to edit it from time to time or integrate with content spinner tool.

      Hey Riccardo,

      I use this plugin to import products and to autoupdate prices for various Affiliate networks.

      I also use Zanox as one of modules. But not sure about coupon importing. I think it could work. It would be best to send email to sizamtheme@gmail.com

      By that I meant it can automatically update products with prices, automatically update those prices on set interval as well as products and you can create price comparison from different stores for particular product.

      Hope it clears doubts now.

    Bought Content Egg Pro, it doesn’t update properly. Contacted the author and he is rude, has poor English and never put in the effort to solve this problem even during support period. Just rude emails. Regret buying and won’t renew this or buy any of his other work like rehub theme for the same reason, worst support ever.

      Hi James,

      I personally use Content Egg PRO and always received response and was able to solve issue. Yes, his English is not the best but you can understand what he is trying to say.

      I also use ReHub theme and despite support period expired on Themeforest, I always get response and finnaly resolve issue. My only problem is long wait for response.

      Exactly the same issue – this guy is hopeless at support and claims he can’t understand what i’m asking and telling me what i’m asking for makes no sense. I put it in very simple english but he still acts dumb and pretends he doesn’t get it. Anyone should take heed here, support is THE WORST. Kaza you should think twice about recommending this product.

        I am very satisfied with using Content Egg and I am using it for more than 2 years.

        Of course, there is no way everybody will be satisfied with the same product. I feel it is worthy investment and still will recommend until something better shows up.

        I have contacted support many times and always get a response. Sometimes it took longer but the issue was solved in the end.

    Hi Kasa,
    This is a great review of content egg. I discovered content egg a while because I needed a platform that could update all my products for my affiliate sites as well as provide opportunities to utilize different affiliates sites without having to purchase separate plugins for those. I use it currently in most of my sites and haven’t had any issues so far!1

      But I still use Content Egg and highly recommend it. If in doubt check official site and see what option suits you best.

      You get that when you signup.

      Didn’t try Ezusy app. It would be better if it supported more shops not just AlieExpress.

      Also, don’t find it much beneficial for the purposes mentioned in the post.

    Hi kasa,
    without any promotion, approximately, how much traffic will it get if we use the Content Egg and set the autoblogging??

    One more question : have you ever use the Price Comparison Pricetapestry?

    Reply to this comment
    • Kasa
      March 13, 13:39 Kasa Author

      Most likely very small amount of traffic. From SEO aspect even plugin author says that you need to have at least little content which you made.

      The main topic of this post was to introduce Content Egg from store price comparison aspect. Not usage as auto blogging tool.

      I guess you could use Spin Rewriter in combination with Content Egg to get better results and at least some amount of unique content.

      In fact last few days I am intensively checking Price Comparison Pricetapestry as it has option to integrate with WordPress and is cheaper than other price comparison scripts.

      Also, it has great support and it is one-time payment with lifetime updates and usage on unlimited sites. I am thinking of purchasing to try and make review and see if I can reccommend it to WordPress users as another way to compare prices.

    Hi kasa, this is good information, I just wonder if this plugin can crawl over the ecoms store and display on 1 site. Means, it can provide a search box that can find any product on selected ecoms store then, automatically select the best price and compare it. Just like mysmartprice.com. or Trivago.com

    Can this plugin do that?
    If not, can I modified it? Or there is other plugin that can do such a thing? Thank you.

      I don’t really understand what exactly are you trying to do. I am guessing you want to use Amazon module and have a problem with plugin finding content.

      In any case for any issues you should contact plugin support.

    Like the other poster here, totally regret purchasing this plugin.

    This guy doesn’t understand basic questions. Support takes 24-48 hours to reply. The problem with the plugin is that the high and low price settings apply to EVERY PAGE. So, you can’t have different pages with different price ranges. I’ve asked this guy THREE TIMES giving different examples and every time he doesn’t have a clue, says i don’t understand the plugin, said what i’m asking for makes no sense. CLUELESS. Seriously, avoid this guy. The refund policy is NO REFUNDS which is unfortunate for me, but should ring alarm bells for anyone.
