The Best WordPress Plugin for Social Media Auto Posting Your Content

If you are like me, you spend a lot of time crafting the perfect blog post. You set down to write the definitive post about a topic, conduct research, and endure several rewrites until you have an article that you feel is worthy of publishing. Great content takes hours (sometimes days, weeks or years) to write and by the time you are done, you are ready to move on to something else.

For those of us who are not professional writers, much of this writing time goes on during a time where your readers aren’t online en masse. For example, I am writing this blog post on a Sunday afternoon. Nobody is going to read this post if I publish as soon as I get done, and posting great content prematurely can mean a death sentence for its shareability in social media.

Jeffalytics stats from Jetpack Stats

Jeffalytics gets the most comments on Tuesdays according to Jetpack Stats

That means that I will schedule this blog post to go live Tuesday or Wednesday in order to capture as many eyeballs as possible amongst my social networks. Publishing content at an ideal time often yields ideal engagement, so I need to be conscious of this when publishing.

Even though I am writing this on a Sunday, I plan to publish on Tuesday morning to get the most possible activity

Social Media Promotion is Extremely Important

In addition to getting timing right with posting, it is also imperative that each time I publish a post that I syndicate it to all of my relevant social networks in order to drive new visitors to my site. This also helps me achieve search rankings, especially when posting to Google Plus.

Side Note: I just completed a study of just how important Google+ is for search rankings and the results are staggering. While I am waiting to promote this study for a few weeks, you can view the full Google+ Search Rankings Report by clicking on the book cover to the right.

If you are trying to establish your site as an authority, you need to be active on social media for your content to be found. The first step to discovery is posting to your own social networks each time you create a new piece of content.

But I’m not always near a computer at the time that a post goes live, and sometimes I simply forget to promote my new post to Twitter or Google+. Other times I’m just so relieved to get the post done that I don’t even think to promote. Regardless of the situation, I realized long ago that I need to automate the way I promote content on my social networks.

Fortunately, there are literally hundreds of solutions available for automatically promoting your blog posts to social media networks, with social media auto posting being a high area for innovation in recent years.

Social Media Auto Posting – Which Service is Best?

Twitterfeed Used to be King

Twitterfeed Intro Page

Twitterfeed Intro Page

I started off years ago using a service called Twitterfeed to post directly from my RSS feed to my Twitter account. It worked well for many years (so well that I never had to look elsewhere until recently).

While they have support for Facebook and LinkedIn, I had to stop using Twitterfeed due to a few quirks with the way that it was working for my sites. Particularly, I did not like that:

  • It didn’t always post all of my articles in a timely manner and sometimes it just forgot to post at all. This is likely because it is RSS feed driven and the feed may not have properly pinged the service, but either way it was not consistent enough for my needs.
  • There are some quirks with the way a feed has to go into Facebook to show up with a thumbnail image that also affected how the content posted on Twitter (instead of just showing the title, it shows the first sentence of the post as well).
  • Making edits to your feeds is nerve wracking and not advisable.
  • Sometimes it crosses streams and shares the wrong content to the wrong network. This happened to me when I posted a personal post to the Three Deep blog on accident years ago. Not good.
  • Many other little quirks that have not been worked out over the years.

Needless to say, I have migrated away from Twitterfeed over the years and I don’t see it being a viable option for me anytime again.

Jetpack Has some Cool Features

I started trying Jetpack late last year based on a Tweet I received from Matt Mullenweg from WordPress.

Matt Mullenweg Tweets Jeff Sauer

I had always been skeptical of Jetpack for a while because I thought it really only worked with WordPress.com blogs (it’s called Jetpack by WordPress.com), but then I realized my perception was wrong after Matt made the suggestion. After installing, I noticed a feature called Publicize and decided to give it a shot.

Jetpack Publicize

Jetpack from WordPress, including Publicize

Publicize easily connected to my social network accounts and was a breeze to install, but it was missing integration with Google+, which is the network I view to be the most important network for me achieving search rankings.

It turns out that very few services will let you automatically post to Google+, because apparently there is not a direct API for posting into Google+, so Google+ is missing from almost all social media auto posting applications.

The other thing that I don’t love about Jetpack Publicize was that I appeared to only be able to publish to one Facebook page at a time. I could not post to my personal Facebook account + my Facebook fan page at the same time. This caused a problem for my Travel Blog, which I want to share with friends and followers (two separate populations).

If it weren’t for those two factors, I would gladly continue to use Jetpack. Fortunately, I found a plugin that does all of these things and more!

SNAP (Social Networks Auto Poster) is the Best WordPress Plugin for Social Media Auto Posting

It turns out that there is at least one social media auto posting tool that integrates with Google+, and that is Social Networks Auto Poster (SNAP). I came across this plugin recently and it has solved all of my problems posting my content to social networks.

Social Networks Auto Poster Supported Services

Social Networks Auto Poster Supported Services

The base version of the plugin is free, but you need to pay $49 to get the version that allows you to post to Google+. I gladly upgraded to this version and have never looked back.

While I plan to do a full dedicated review of this plugin in the future, I will let you know what sets this plugin apart from the others:

  • Google+ and Pinterest posting (Pro Version)
  • You can delay your auto posting by up to 48 hours after the publish date (Pro Version)
  • When you post to Twitter and Facebook, you need to set up an App to post. It looks awesome seeing your website name as the app who sent out the tweet or blog post
    Auto Posted through Official Apps
  • More than one account allowed for Facebook, Twitter, etc. (Pro Version)
  • Everything looks as if I did all of my posting by hand. It’s beautiful
  • It’s native to WordPress, so does not rely on RSS or pinging to work, which is great for future-proofing

Having used applications to post to my social networks for years and always being a little disappointed with how the tools worked, I can say that SNAP is by far the best tool that I have ever used in this regard. Expect a full review and tutorial on how to use the product in the future, but for now I suggest that you give the free version of the plugin a try. You will not be disappointed.

Bonus Tip: I actually have modified my auto posting of this article to send an @ message to NextScripts on Twitter to make them aware that they are my chosen winner. Maybe this will bring the article to their attention and they might even retweet or respond to the post. That’s a powerful way to reach your target audience!

Automatically Ping NextScripts when post goes live

Automatically Ping NextScripts when post goes live

What do you think? Are there any other networks out there that do the same thing? Let us know in the comments!

Disclosure – I wrote this post in March of 2013 to showcase my long journey to discovery. Since that time I estimate that hundreds of people have been helped by this post. I learned in July 2013 that I could receive a commission by sending people to purchase SNAP, so clicking on these links does earn me a small commission. Please note that the content of this post was in no way influenced by SNAP. My motivation for writing this post was pure.

    Thanks for the post man! I was def looking for a plugin and just like you, ended up ultimately going with SNAP. Great plugin – just takes a little while to configure EVERY social media but after that haul it’s awesome.

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Yeah, it does take a while to configure, but the white labeling of your app is pretty amazing! It also ensures that you don’t get filtered out really easily like other posting tools.

      • Jas

        What do you mean “get filtered out”?

        • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

          With Facebook, posts from Applications tend to get less focus on timeline for users than native posts from Facebook users. The Google+ hack used by SNAP makes the post look like a native post from the user vs. something being posted through an application/API.

  • http://www.facebook.com/georgeslater007 George Slater

    HI Jeff, Great post, took me thtough exactly what my issues are and what I’m looking for, both for me and for my organsiation. I’ll give the free version a try then probably upgrade. Thanks

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Glad it helped. I am really becoming a big fan of NextScripts (maker of the plugin) and their forward thinking view/commitment to making the plugin better.

  • jess

    I still cant figure out how jetpack works for wordpress.org. Are there multiple versions?

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Hi Jess. You need to first download the plugin and install on your self hosted WordPress blog. Then you need to synchronize that plugin with your WordPress.com account for it to be enabled. Then each of the different Jetpack features need to be enabled and configured. It’s a multi step process, but worth it in many cases.

  • Carla

    Hi Jeff,

    Nice post, very helpful. I’m not using Google+ yet, so I can get by with the free version for now. But I do have a question and I’m hoping you can help.

    From what I’m understanding, lots of plugins require authentication from the plugin developer’s website or server. Is this true of SNAP? This is something I understand very little about, but this dependency on a third-party interacting with my content concerns me.

    I’d really welcome some input on this to put my mind at ease.

    Thank you!!

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Carla,

      You may benefit more from asking this question of NextScripts/SNAP directly, but my understanding is that they are not using your username/password to post, only to authenticate your user account. The posting is done by creating a Facebook or Twitter application that does the posting to your profile.

      Google+ is different, though, because they don’t have an API, so I believe the script may be interacting with the content as you.

      I don’t think your concerns are needed with SNAP specifically, though, because they are not pushing any content that is not yours. They are just serving as an intermediary.

  • Steve Nickson

    Hi Jeff,
    Nice article man & funnily enough I just stumbled upon (pardon the pun) SNAP myself. So far it seems to be the best available although I have not tried Jet Pack. My only criticism of SNAP is the fact I cannot get it to use external or source urls in the titles when it pushes stuff out to my social accounts. I’m putting a news aggregator site together & need it to honour the originating source, but it doesn’t matter what I try, it still reverts back to my blog url, even though I have the titles on my blog & in my RSS feed using the source urls..?
    On the subject of Google+, why pay $49..? you can set this up on a free Hootsuite account. You simply tell Hootsuite to pull in the stuff you want posting on Google+ from a RSS Feed (say your blog feed), and it will then post everything from that feed to Google+.

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Hey Steve – I’m sure there are many ways to do the G+ part… I just liked the idea of having it all in one place. Plus, the SNAP people need to make money and $49 is a small price to pay for the great product they put out. I like to support developers who put out a truly useful product, even if I don’t need every single feature.

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      I’m not sure I know the answer to your question about linking to original content… I would talk with the developers at NextScripts to see if they can answer the question.

  • Shaun Luyt

    Hi Jeff, you don’t specifically mention – unless I missed it – whether the auto-posting to Google+ is to a Google+ Page and/or Profile? Could you please confirm whether can can set-up autoposting to a Google+ Profile?

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Shaun – I use it to post to both my page and my profile. You have the option to do both. You can also automatically post to G+ communities, but I recommend doing that with caution.

      • robertmstanley

        @jeffsauer:disqus – thanks for the updated info on G+ . That is something I found to be lacking in most plugins like this.

  • Kalon Wiggins

    great post. downloading this now.

  • http://selinapcp.weebly.com/ Selina Quinn Personal Care

    Is it safe to use this plugin because your valid accounts are required for the module to work properly?

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Hi Selina – not sure I fully understand the question? Yes you need valid accounts, but you would need them for posting content to your social networks anyway. This tool simply automates the process of posting so you don’t have to remember to do it each time.

      • http://selinapcp.weebly.com/ Selina Quinn Personal Care

        ok im jus afraid that my accounts will be exposed, so if it is safe to use then I will download it Thanks Jeffsauer

  • justin barracosa

    Hey Jeff, i have several domains that i’d like auto posted to different social accounts, do you know if the pro version will do this? Thanks, great write up. SNAP is also offering a couple freebies right now too!

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      I believe that each domain you install it on can have distinct accounts to post to. At least that’s how it works for me on the multiple sites I run.

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Yes, you can post to a Group as well!

      • http://www.malecondans.no/ José Arturo Leguén Lores

        Perfect, i’ll give it a try right away ;-)
        This is good stuff, thanks!

      • http://www.malecondans.no/ José Arturo Leguén Lores

        Can this plugin be used for my clients?
        I do some marketing and need a solution that can help, so I can post my clients posts to these social media channels ;-)
        If this solution does not help, it’ll be really helpfull if you know about any.
        Thanks again ;-)

        • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

          I use the plugin on several sites that I own. Each site has specific settings, so you can have unique settings for your site and unique settings for clients. Not sure if license is one time use or for multiple sites, though.

            Thanks;

          • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

            This plugin is not used for someone to log into the site using a social media login or to place comments. It’s purely meant for posting externally to social networks you own/control.

    I tried using SNAP and cannot get it to post to facebook reliably. grr..

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Hi Evelyn – I’m not sure why it would not be reliable. If you go through the instructions and create an app, the tool should post automatically. It must be something with the configuration. I know it’s a lot of steps, but following them closely should yield good results. I know it still works well for me.

  • Alan

    Jeff, thanks for the heads up regards the syndication possibilities of SNAP. I have been trying to find a suitable blog post syndication tool for a while now, I have used several plugins, some online integration tools, but to be honest they all failed miserably. They kept crashing, no G+ integration, and many times I had to keep re-installing to get rid of the errors.

    I eventually got rid of all of them and have been searching for a suitable alternative for several months now. In the last few days, I have found a service called onlywire.com, which seems to have a lot of what SNAP has to offer, but with ability to send to a few more networks than SNAP, and it has analytics built in which I think is quite nice functionality, but the lower version is $49 per annum, with the PRO version considerably more than that.

    One of the things I really like with SNAP is how the post looks like when you post it, it is neat and clean and looks professional, at this stage I have no idea what the onlywire post will look like, but I have signed up for the free 7 day trial and will do a test post to see the difference. Onlywire does not syndicate to Pinterest, well, not that I can find anyway, and Pinterest is a big one at the moment. I am also going to try the free version of SNAP and do a comparison. Thanks for a really great post Jeff.

  • realsqlguy

    One catch about the Google+ posting, which you don’t realize until AFTER you’ve purchased – it doesn’t work if you have 2-factor authentication enabled on your Google account. This isn’t explained anywhere before making the purchase. Their workaround is to create a new Google account that doesn’t use 2-factor, and make that an admin of your Google+ page. Doesn’t help resolve the problem of publishing to your own G+ page.

    Oh, they refuse to give refunds too. Buyer beware.

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I was not aware of the limitation, but it makes sense. Since SNAP works with Google+ using a third party API, I can understand why this might happen. Sorry you couldn’t get refunded though.

      I doubt that will happen with SNAP. The way it works currently is that it posts as YOU on G+, using your account. I don’t think it is possible to differentiate between this and actually logging into G+ to make a post.

    Thank’s a lot, very helpful

  • Gary Coon

    Thanks for this info! I dumped the Simple Facebook Connect plugin (which stopped working) and switched to SNAP last November after reading your recommendation. It seemed to work well until I figured out I was still using it in Sandbox mode and only I was seeing any posts on the FB page or in my FB Timeline. I fixed that problem and now everyone can see the WP/SNAP posts on the FB page OK, BUT nobody gets them sent to their FB Timeline! That’s kind of important. After looking at Nextscripts and FB FAQ/Help I can’t figure out what else could be causing this problem. I also have the Facebook for WordPress plugin installed on WP (from a previous Admin) but I can’t see where it has anything to do with the SNAP plugin. Any suggestions? Reference: http://elsonlawfirm.com/category/blog/ and http://www.facebook.com/elsonlawfirm.

    • http://JMarieDirect.com/ JMarieDirect

      Did you figure out how to get them on timeline?

      • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

        The Facebook integration works perfectly for me still.

      • Gary Coon

        Once I removed the sandbox mode for the SNAP plugin in WP it posted to FB OK.
        What I think I learned thru further research was that people who LIKE my FB page don’t necessarily see my new FB posts (regardless of whether auto or not) unless they have some high level of ongoing interaction with the page. Of course if they look at the FB page timeline directly they can at least see them then.
        My next issue has been that these auto posts from WP to FB don’t get posted automatically to my Twitter account automatically (while manually typed ones do). My help request to Twitter has never been answered…

        • Aziz Peregrino-Brimah

          That is not a SNAP issue, but a FB issue. Even if you posted manually to your FB, you’d have the same experience.

  • Gary Coon

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Mark,

      I also sent a reply that doesn’t appear to have posted, so I’m trying again.
      Posts to Facebook from applications never show posts 100% of the time. It’s often 5-20%. My SNAP posts show up around 20% of the time.

      If you get 0% of posts showing up, it could be a broken connection or an untrusted application by Facebook. If you get 5% or so, it is actually normal behavior.

      I would start to troubleshoot by creating a new FB application and going through the SNAP process from scratch to see if you can get it to work.
      For Facebook posting you can try tons of other tools as well like Jetpack, Twitterfeed, Buffer, etc.

      • Aziz Peregrino-Brimah

        You can connect your Twitter to your Facebook so that whenever something posts to Twitter, it goes to Facebook. This works for me 100% of the time.

      • Sylvain

        If I get it right, this BEHAVIOR is for the USERS that are SUBSCRIBED to your page. The plugin will post everything you write on your page, but with the Facebook algorithm, only a small percentage will be share to your fans.

    Also, just want to inform you that http://wordpress.org/plugins/sharepress/ is out there too.

  • Caleb

    Hi Jeff great post – just wondering do you know of any plugin that will do this for pages that I create on wordpress rather than purely posts? I tried using jetpack and that didn’t work – I can’t seem to find an alternative that will work either.

    Thanks

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      My personal opinion is that auto posting should be reserved for posts because of the time factor of posts. You can schedule a post to go live in the future, whereas pages are usually published when done. I use auto posting because a post might go live well after I am done writing it. I am also guessing that technically these tools function based on the scheduling action in WordPress, which is different for posts than pages.

      That said, I could see how others might benefit from auto posting their pages and you should leave that feedback for SNAP to see if they would want to build that feature.

    Hi Jeff! Thanks so much for the info! I’ve been looking for a plugin that posts not just links, but images for maximum exposure and I see that snap does just that! I’ve struck out with other applications and I’m excited to give this one a try!

    Separately, I have clients that would like to automatically publish my blog content to their own facebook and/or external websites on a daily basis. Do you know of any plugins, widgits, or any other way that this could be setup as an automatic feature. I’d love to provide this service as it would only enhance my exposure — linking back to my site.

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      I believe that you can use SNAP to publish to multiple Facebook pages/profiles. They will need to configure their page/profile to work with the application you set up with SNAP and it should post to them too.

    If you need a plugin displaying your most shared articles, i can suggest one I recently developed.

    If you have some time to give it a try, do not hesitate to drop me suggestions to improve it.

    I discovered Jetpack seems to have a problem. As somebody else has mentioned, it does support Google+ now, but it doesn’t seem to be able to reliably post to my Google+ page. I have also noticed that it doesn’t post to my social media right away. Instead, it seems to be waiting until I log in to my WordPress account. I may be mistaken on that, but it’s certainly not right away. I typically check to make sure it posted, and so I log in fairly soon, but it still doesn’t work smoothly to post to my pages.

    Edit: I noticed Google+ is available in the free version of SNAP.

    Dear Jeff!

    I have been using SNAP since a month, SNAP has a problem of posting to facebook pages (business), as you need to create facebook app to do posting, and facebook do not allow app creation for business accounts. Few weeks ago, SNAP used to work with fb posting by creating app by a general fb user, and then using that app for business page posting. Now facebook changed the rule, fb app should be created by the authorizing page to which SNAP will post, in my case, i cannot due to business account. :(
    I want to have a good wordpress plugin for my website http://www.UnlockDaddy.co.uk but i am still unable to find one.

    thanks for nice article.

    They killed auto posting to Blogger … is there a plugin for WordPress that will autopost to Blogger – as in a free plugin like SNAP?

    Hi
    Im a little confused what this plugin actually does, at first i thought it auto posts any blog posts from wordpress hosted sites to facebook pages (and others), but after reading some comments it seems people are having major issues with this

    Is it only meant to be used for personal use and our ‘personal profile’ on facebook such as personal/individuals timeline or newsfeed? As the point of it, i would have thought it should mainly be for businesses to take advantage to have it post from our websites or blogs and share it into our facebook business pages for prospects and clients to see, and to save re-writing every post from our website and doing it again on our FB page or copy and pasting all the time?

    Also its very worrying seeing that it only works around 10% of the time, so sounds like for every 10 posts that are sent to FB – only ONE gets published…??

    Would appreciate someone clearing this confusion up please

    Many Thanks

    Steve

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      Steve – the plugin will allow you to automatically schedule posts to your social networks at the time of publishing, or at a chosen time in the future. Not sure where the confusion comes from, but my posts to Facebook personal and business pages work just fine every time.

  • http://jscwebdesign.com Steve

    Thanks Jeff
    I meant the comments you made earlier in these comments saying about only 5% or 10% posts get sent to FB and talk here about Facebook changing and therefore only posts to personal pages and not business PAGES…!

    Could you just clear up those 2 issues please
    Thanks

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      That is a Facebook issue. Their algorithms only show a certain percentage of your posts to their users. It’s something that will happen if you post to a FB business page, regardless of the tool you use for posting. You should still post to both personal and business FB pages, but you may need to pay money to FB in order to boost your audience.

  • fwu

    hello,
    For what I understand, all those plugins have a big limitation: when you post to social networks, you will likely to get comments about your posts in that social networks. Those plugins should be able to get those comments and relate them with your post in your comments post in wordpress.
    Until now just the social plugin do that. Am I wrong?

  • Eggabase

    Nice post. Thanks to you I found SNAP and its working great :)

    I should give SNAP a try for pinterest … Thanks for sharing this

    SNAP is terrible for sharing to Stumbleupon unfortunately. 99% of the time, despite having it all connected and set up, it doesn’t share to stumbleupon. It also frequently causes the wrong thumbnail to appear on facebook (and often no thumbnail at all)

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      I would disconnect and reconnect to see if you are running an old version of their API. I have not experienced and of these problems.

        I’ve tried that unfortunately and it still didn’t work

    I installed the free version of this plugin the other day. The setup instructions for each network seemed a bit daunting at first. So I did a web search to see if others recommended using SNAP and came across your article. It convinced me to plunge ahead. The instructions on the NextScript site are actually really well written and easy to follow with great screen shots. So it was a “snap” to get things set up and I LOVE it. Just purchased the Pro version via your link. Really appreciate the article and am happy to support it with a commission.

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      That’s great! It’s really not that hard if you follow the instructions and glad you pulled through!

    Is there a plug-in that will autopost FROM a public Facebook page TO wordpress?

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      I’m sure something like this is available, either via Facebook or through a third party service like IFTTT? I have not researched that need much, though.

  • http://www.desireroberts.com/ Désiré Roberts

    I’m looking for a WordPress plugin to revive my evergreen content and auto-publish on Twitter, Linkedin and Google+.. well mainly to Google plus… I can IFTTT my way around for the other two but man, Google+ is just not a friendly social network.. Can you help?

    • http://jeffalytics.com/ Jeffsauer

      You can do this with SNAP. I did it for a while and it worked well at bringing back engagement for older postsŠ

  • Sam

    Additionally, you can post to all Facebook groups and pages at once from this tool : http://fb.maherhackers.com

    Hope it helps.

  • Gust Lenglet

    Thanks for this post. I’ve tried several plugins but they had various issues and were more bother than worth. I’m going to give the free version a shot, and if it performs, will be back to buy the Pro.

    Hi,
    Thanks for a great post, I installed SNAP long time ago but it always have difficulty with posting the image. It seems like it doesn’t know which image to take to post on my Facebook. And specially after I’ve updated my photo it takes it as an image for the post instead of the image I have for the post. Do you have a hack for that?
    Hope you can help.
    Thank you.
    Tamara
