Increased use of web content feeds

There are many ways to increase the content on your site, create purchase from manual to automatic generation of software.

Although I strongly recommend that you stay away from anything that is automatically generated, I also understand that many people feel uncomfortable with writing.

Therefore, in this article, I will investigate another method to make your site look as if it is changing. In other words, add a feed to your website to increase the return rate and build your brand.

Over time, feeds have become more and more popular. In fact, some people measure this popularity.

Although feed is not the only attribute of blog, we can check the Tate in the blogosphere. Holmium

according to data Technorati, the blog world doubles every five months. This means that in 5 months, the number of blogs (and feeds) will be twice as many as they are now.

In many cases, in addition to regularly visiting the website, the only way to access this content is through their feeds.

But this is not the only use of feed. Many services have emerged that allow you to search and aggregate these feeds. Services such as Feedster or even googlenews allow you to search for phrases and output RSS feeds, which are then imported into the feed reader.

In other words, if you want to get the latest news about Google from Google News, you can search for “Textlinkbrokers” in googlenews, and then copy the RSS feed URL to your favorite news reader.

Now I know what you’re thinking: 鈥淲um, this is good news, but how does it help my website? Holmium

now, you already know how any topic you want to automatically generate feeds, then you can use a variety of methods to import the feed site.

Insert the source site

is clear, not just links to feeds, XML output can not paste into the page. It is unreadable. What you need is some tools to convert the feed into readable content. Many people are doing this.

So let’s take a look at the simplest-Javascript from hosting services like FeedRoll.

Using a service like FeedRoll, you can enter the URL of the feed you need, make some basic style changes, it will provide you with a Javascript, you can install Javascript on your site page, and display the feed in the page content. One of my problems with FeedRoll is that you are limited to the list of feeds they provide. There was a time when you could use any feed URL, but then they changed it.

The only way to use FeedRoll with your own feed is to purchase their package, which will allow you to export the feed as HTML code, which you can paste on your site.

However, if your favorite feed is in the list, then you only need to make the required style changes, copy the Javascript code onto the page, and you are done. Once you save this page, load it into your browser, and voila, you will regularly update the news headlines on the page.

But what if you want something more complicated?

There are also some options here, including ASP and PHP-based code that can fetch and format the feed in real time.

Therefore, if you have a dynamic site and don’t mind messing around in the code, this might be the solution for you.

Use PHP to display feeds

using PHP to display the benefits of RSS feeds are content displayed on a page can be search engines and indexes. This means that links can be followed. This also means that if you have your own feed, you can put it on your homepage (for example) to allow crawlers to quickly and easily access your latest content.

One of my favorite PHP-based converters is called CaRP. There are two free and commercial versions, so you can not only display the feed as HTML, but also customize it in any way style format, and even display the image in the feed (much like you see Google News now).

It may be a bit tricky to set it up at first because it is not strictly PHP, but once you start to play around with these values, you will start to realize how flexible it is.

I know that I can use it on my personal website to display not only the latest industry news, but also my recent blog posts and forum entries. In this way, the crawler can quickly enter new content through a direct link on the homepage.

Use ASP display feeds

like PHP example above, as well as an ASP script, it will receive an RSS feed and output it as static HTML.

My favorite is this feed converter, which also allows you some leeway when outputting feeds.

If you are familiar with ASP, you will find how easy it is to manipulate scripts to suit you. Even if you are not an ASP expert, you will find that the script is easy to implement, and there are comment hints throughout the script to tell you how to make it work.


As you can see, the site displays summary there are many ways – from the hosting service to embed script in ASP or PHP. The only thing that limits you is your ability and imagination.

Based on experience, I can tell you that I have used all the above versions and I am very satisfied with each one.

And, because they will accept any feed, your choice of what you want to show is limited to your ability and imagination.

For example, I use ASP on an ASP site to display the latest news from googlenews. I have webpage settings, pull Google news to Google webpage, Yahoo! News becomes Yahoo! Page wait.

With the PHP (CaRP) script, I display the latest blog posts and forum entries on the homepage of my site to help crawlers find new content quickly.

For customers with limited capabilities or limited technical support, I implemented managed versions because they are easier to implement.

So my advice to you is to try it out and find the one that suits you best. If you don’t like the simple search I suggest here, your favorite search engine should return you many different options.
