I’m not affiliated with this blog except as a fan of the software, but I’ll offer this in answer to your questions if that’s all right with you and with Olga.
RSS2Blog simply does not compare to Blog Auto Publisher. RSS2Blog grabs RSS feeds and insterts them into your blog posts.
Blog Auto Publisher fully manages your blogs, and automates many of the mundane routine tasks involved in maintaining and posting to a blog. Far from being a mindless machine designed to copy verbatim copies of questionable content from one location on the net to another as so many so called blog automation tools really are; BAP is a management suite in a single interface that allows you to scheduale, manage, organize, post and maintain your blogs and their content.
It can republish RSS feeds exactly like RSS2Blog, but really, that is the least of it’s functions and capablilities. It can also manage and post articles from non feed sources such as article directories and public domain repositories. It can manage organize, schedule and post your own original content. It takes care of many small, but tedius tasks associated with maximizing the potential of each post to your blog as well, such as automatically rotating and inserting ads, links or anything else you care to put into the ad section. I’ve found a few non standard uses for the ad inserter alone. :) It also automatically handles technorati tags and trackbacks for you too.
Technorati (http://technorati.com) is a blog search engine. But unlike a regular search engine it has a search side that will list any blog post containing a given search phrase, but it also has a tag section where you are only listed if you have tagged your post for that phrase. Now the competition is about ten to one hundred times less in the tag section and the resulting traffic and secondary search engine indexing as a result of being listed there is many times greater than being listed only in the search side. (psssst… don’t spread that around too loudly, I enjoy being the ONLY blog in a few very valuable tag searches. lol)
A trackback is a way for two blogs to talk to each other. When I post to my blog that post will have a special URL called a trackback URI. Now if you make a related post and link to my post and put that special trackback URL in your blog where it asks for it, then my blog will automatically put a link to your post in the comments section of my post. This lets readers see what different bloggers have to say about the same subject, and it helps us both out with quality relevant links for the search engines to follow and index. All without cheating begging or stealing. Pretty fly, for a geek, huh?
