For autobloggers ... full article RSS feed

by xga
29 replies
For my niche blogs, I use the wp-o-matic wordpress plugin to setup the autoblogging. I used the rss feed from article directories to dripfeed my blogs.

However, I encountered 2 problems with the RSS feed from most article directories. Firstly, the rss feed only contain article snippet. I like to have the full articles so that the visitors coming to my blogs have something to read instead of 2 or 3 sentences that lead to nowhere.

Secondly, most of the rss feeds are restricted to broad categories (like business, health,..). I am looking for rss feeds that can let me select the articles based on certain keywords. I trying to make the content more targeted without having to vet through every articles from the feed.

However, after searching for days and not finding the type of feed I wanted. I decided to modify my own article directory to create my own full article feed.

I don't know if I am the only one having these problems. But if you are also looking for a customizable full article feed, feel free to use it. You can build you own rss feed from the url below:

You can filter the articles based on keywords in the title or tagging.

    Wow thanks XGA! I've got a blog that I was trying to do exactly this with a couple months ago, but I could only ever find short little RSS feeds that didn't have full article, let alone credits attached.

    This is perfect. Thanks much!

    Now if only I could get a plugin that would automatically tag each post with relevant tags, and fill out the all-in-one-seo information for me... =)

      I am also looking for such plugin.

      Articles are usually tag with relevant keywords by the authors when they submit. Originally, I output these tags in the rss feed together with the article content. But I could not find any plugins that can make good use of these tags so I remove them from the feed to save on server resources and speed up the feed response time.

      If there is such a plugin that can read the tags from the feed and auto create the relevant wordpress categories ... then that will be powerful.

      I hope someone will discover or create such plugin fast ... so that I don't have to end up making one myself.

    Ok - another question - how do you automatically ad Adwords code into the MIDDLE of a post? I suspect this needs to be done with a post template, but does anyone know how to do that???

      I'm assuming you mean Adsense... try this:

      WordPress › Post Layout WordPress Plugins

        Oops. Brainfart. Thanks for the correction, and yeah, that plugin looks like it might help. I've got something that can easily put the adsense code before or after the post already; but I've always been stumped as to how to put it into the middle of the post automatically. I had another one that allowed me to choose where I wanted it in the middle of the post, but that doesn't really help much with this as I'd have to edit every article. Cheers.

          You can also try the WhyDoWork Adsense plugin. It does what you're asking, which is place the adsense code in the middle of an article. Actually, you can specify where you want the adsense ads to appear (i.e. top, top middle, top left, top right, middle, middle left, middle right, bottom, and random).

          I'm sure one of these will fit with what you're trying to accomplish. Aside from that, you can also specify when you want the ads to appear. For example, on posts older than a certain amount of days, and whether or not you want the ads to change position for these post.

      This is very good XGA. Thanks for sharing with us.

      I think you'll find you'll also start getting more articles submitted to your site in appreciation.

      One thing I've noticed is that, if I wanted to use multiple keywords, I need separate feeds.

      For instance, if the keyword nominated is "Cancer Treatment" it will return articles with that phrase in the title but not "Cancer Cures" or "Cancer Remedies". To get "cures" and "remedies" as well it seems I have to have separate feeds.

      Would it be possible to specify multiple keywords as in - "Cancer Treatment" or "Cancer Cures" or "Cancer Remedies"?

        When I designed the system, having separate feeds for multiple keywords wasn't really problem because the wp-o-matic plugin can accept multiple feeds.

        But I understand your point. Having a single feed is easy to track and manage than multiple feeds. Besides, not RSS applications accept multiple feeds.

        Thanks for the suggestion. I will see if it is possible to add your request in the next release.

        I have released a new version of the full article rss feed that allow you to specify multiple keywords on a single feed.

        Using the example in your post, if you want a feed using keywords - "Cancer Treatment" or "Cancer Cures" or "Cancer Remedies", then enter the following in the rss builder page:

        all these words: cancer
        the exact phrase:
        one or more of these words: treatment cures remedies
        none of these words:

        This will give you articles with title that contains "cancer" and either "treatment" or "cures" or "remedies".

    The terms of service mention

    "You are not to change/modify the article or any part of the article in any way."

    Do you think this includes hyperlinking keywords in the article to other articles/sites/products?

      You should not hyperlink any keywords in the article because it would lead others to think that the author of the article endorses the products/sites that is linked to, when in fact it may not be true.

    haha I think Internet Marketing is finally starting to reach that critical mass where when you launch a piece of content it's being syndicated and passed all over the internet in <24 hours.

    Crazy stuff, but really really awesome.

      For anyone looking for full RSS feeds for their autoblogs...

      All of my directories have full category and author feeds, complete with author resource.

      Over 20,000 feeds are available.

      Best!

    exactly what I've been looking for. Installed wpomatic a while back but was disappointed that all the feeds were just snippets of the content. Thanks heaps!
