Feedley by Goodluck Efe is software that bills itself as a world-class, all-in-one news site builder. It allows you to copy the EXACT information that leading online news sites have written. You can earn daily income without writing a single piece of content, creating products, creating videos, or paying for traffic and ads.
Feedly comes with WYSIWYG Editor, Google Analytics integration, Unlimited Video Posts, Custom Domains, Social Sharing, SEO-Friendly URLs, AdSense Support, Inbuilt Users & Email Management System, Custom RSS Support, Multilingual support, etc. WOW!
But even if you don’t have a clue what any of that means, Feedley claims that you are good to make money with ZERO TECH SKILLS. Not only that, it’s what’s known as “passive income,” meaning you don’t have to make any hard sales! Now, how great does that sound?
But before you head out to buy pants with more pockets and drop the low, low price of $17 to get started, let’s take a spin and see if Feedley is for you. Will Feedley feed your family, or is it just Feedley-ing you a line!
Oh, I forgot to mention, $17 is a great price, but the price will run into the hundreds if you want to “Whitelabel” your site.

What Is Feedley?
Feedley is software that allows the user to create a website and curate content from all over the internet. You can use exciting content from a variety of top websites. With this content, the website provided to you will draw in ready-made product buying, money-making consumers who will also click your links and ads to generate money.
In theory, Feedley enables you to add articles, videos, etc., from sites such as Bloomberg, Fox News, YouTube, The Daily Mail, etc., and use their content to create something akin to a Viral News/Video Greatest Hits collection. Remember those commercials for CDs named “Now That’s What I Call Music”? Except that company was stuck paying to use the copyrighted music, but you won’t be! Now That’s What I Call Awesome News.
The Feedley demo is very impressive, with a dynamic back end and an intuitive-looking interface. It does a great walkthrough that demonstrates how you select content from various websites and generate your own pocket-filling revenue. Truthfully, it looks pretty easy to use.
Not only is it rich looking with a smooth interface and able to leap copyrights in a single bound, but Feedley is chock full of MMO goodness. Things like:
- What You See Is What You Get Editor
- Adsense Support (a key component in your pocket stuffing strategy)
- Google Analytics, RSS, Social Media Integration
- SEO Friendly URLs
- Email integration
- And a few other bells and whistles
The only thing Feedley doesn’t come with is the wheelbarrow to roll that money to the bank!
But before you head over to Amazon and start searching for big pocket pants and high-end wheelbarrows, there are a few things to consider about Feedley that could be what you might refer to as “Pocket Blockers” or …to go old school…Red Flags.
Red Flags are a big concern.
Red Flag Warning #1
Let’s start with something known as copyright. As you may guess, articles, videos, and the like on other websites are copyrighted. If you do a quick search over at findlaw.com, you’ll read,
“At first glance, it may seem as if it’s perfectly legal to copy content from a website. But is it? The short answer to this question is “no,” unless you’ve obtained the author’s permission.”
In addition, the legal minds at findlaw.com tell us there’s something called the DMCA – A federal law passed in 1998, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), makes it clear that U.S. copyright laws protect materials published on the Internet.
Is Feedley ethical?
Red Flag Warning #2
As well as being a copyright issue, Feedley causes internet issues that even have its own fun name! When you (or more likely your team of digital bots) publish another person’s website content taking their traffic to make money, it’s known as “scraping.”
But that hardly seems all that bad, right? I mean, a scrape isn’t a severe injury like stabbing or shooting. Scraping is like falling and getting a little cut that might bleed a tiny bit and stings, but it’s not life-threatening, right?
While scraping content may not get you tossed in Bar City, it will create negative attention from websites, as it is considered duplicate content, Google frowns on duplicate content and will shove you down to the low or no revenue realm on their algorithm scale. That may mean a big reduction in the number of pockets you’ll be filling.
Here is the text directly from Google AdSense Resources –
- Sites that copy and republish content from other sites without adding any original content or value
- Sites that copy content from other sites, modify it slightly (for example, by substituting synonyms or using automated techniques), and republish it
- Sites dedicated to embedding content such as video, images, or other media from other sites without substantial added value to the user”
Red Flag Warning #3
Now, you may not feel the way I do about verifying that a company is 100% legitimate. You may not feel customer service is that important? But, just in case you find value in reaching a company you do business with, I did a little research for all of us.
So who is Goodluck Efe?
Well, hard to say, really. According to his advertising, he is a genuine software developer as well as an affiliate marketer. Now, that sounds pretty solid. But, just in case, I did a little more Google magic and searched further.
The only places I find him are on his own ads, his very limited impersonal Facebook page, and listed one time as CEO of GeeCore. And GeeCore isn’t even listed anywhere else. Oddly enough, I did find a Paramedic in Lagos, Nigeria, with the same name.
Red Flag Warning #4
While Feedley is rich and functional as an above-average content scraper, one issue I see is the Whitelabel upgrade. If you want the site to be all yours and in your name, you need to purchase all upgrades to get to the last one, which is the Whitelabel one. You have to buy the rights to get the Feedley name removed so you can privately fill your pockets with all that cash!
So you don’t even own the website unless you invest $972. Now that’s a lot of money to steal other people’s work.
Here is a list of upsells
$17 Basic Program- In my assessment, it appears you get the basic plan to create a website that can pull content from other sites
OTO #1-Feedley Pro $67
OTO #2-Feedkey Agency/Reseller $197
OTO #3-Feedley DFY Setup $197
OTO #4- Feedley DFY Traffic $197
OTO #5- Feedley WhiteLabel $297
The cost to get the complete program is $972.
Now, this is really sad! I found a list of the upgrades but could not find anything about what each one is. Mr. Googluck is a bit stingy on his information. However, I do understand that to Whitelabel, you change the labeling and call the product your own.
- Introductory price is only $17 with the promotion
- Rich, dynamic gooey interface
- Intuitive User Interface
- Easily create website that pulls in existing content from other news sources
- Get revenue from traffic for some period of time
- Ethical questions
- Long term monetary earnings questionable due to policy violations and down ranking
- OTOs are fairly expensive
- Unlike many others, whitelabel is only available via OTO that is 17 times more than front end
- Questionable ownership and accountability/customer service
- See the list of RED FLAGS above
Is Feedleyy A Scam?
The product delivers the promised functionality, thus not meeting the definition of a scam, but it crosses ethical boundaries and Google Monetization Policies.
My Recommendations Regarding Feedley?
I DO NOT recommend Feedley software to anyone due to the ethical and google policy violation questions, the significant Whitelabel investment, and uncertainty of accountability and support.
Be safe from all scams and shiny object programs. Stay informed with other reviews of programs I do not recommend.
