4. The Probabilities Page

Through the probabilites page you can control which modules are used more or less often than others or, in other words, the chance a certain module is selected to create a post.

By default WP Robot posts Clickbank ads, eBay auctions and Youtube videos a little less likely than the other modules. If you want to change that simply edit the percentage values on the page and save your changes. The total of all probabilities has to be 100!

If you choose not to use a certain module when setting up a keyword the value entered in the probabilitie page for the module is of course overridden and set to zero for this particular keyword.

5. The Bulk Add Page

With the Bulk Add Page you can add keywords to WP Robot in bulk for faster set up. You have to specify keywords and categories separated by a ";" (for example "Bananas;Uncategorized") and can either set random post intervals for all of them or specify your own. Please follow the instructions on the "Bulk Add" page.
