FutureRSS is a PHP script that enables webmasters
to prepare content for their RSS feeds in advance,
and have it automatically appear at the desired
date and time. The FutureRSS script can be used
with any RSS 2.0 feed, and allows content to be
'scheduled' to appear in the feed weeks, or even
months later. Webmasters have found, to their dismay,
that most RSS feed reader applications, and feed
aggregator applications do not honor Publish Dates
(PubDate) that are set into the future, making it
impossible to prepare content in their RSS feeds
ahead of time.
The FutureRSS script solves this problem, by not
making any of the RSS feed's Items available until
their PubDate becomes current. The new FutureRSS
script will be made available free of charge to
all registered users of FeedForAll and FeedForAll
Mac. Additional details are available at:
We have created a directory of RSS 2.0 namespace
extensions. This will help users looking to expand
their RSS functionality.
Text to Podcast
We are taught to recycle paper, cans, bottles and
plastic but marketers rarely discuss the value of
repackaging and repurposing content. Publishers
and marketers alike have embraced content syndication
and RSS but few have considered the value beyond
the actual syndication. Consider an alternative
communication channel that reaches a new or different
Advertising in RSS Feeds
As publishers have moved towards monetizing RSS
feeds, their have been vibrant discussions as to
whether advertisements in feeds are viable, or whether
they will drive subscribers away. At the end of
the day, while it appears that many are discussing
the philosophical approaches to ads in RSS feeds,
few are taking the time to examine the options available
for inserting advertisements in feeds.
Develop Quality Content to Rule the Web
What many webmasters fail to realize is that there
is an endless supply of content on the web that
is freely available to webmasters. Not only can
public domain material be freely used and syndicated
on websites, but a number of content publishers
provide content in exchange for a link back to their
websites. A variety of contents related to the website
theme that is integrated into the website will attract
the interest of both search engines and web surfers.
The key to taking advantage of free content is integrating
or including content that is directly related to
the theme of the website.
Monitoring and Tracking RSS Feeds
Measuring and tracking RSS while a fairly simple
concept, is really anything but. Unlike websites,
RSS have the added caveat of potential syndication,
making accurate tracking a challenge to anyone but
the extremely tech savvy. It is not unrealistic
for marketers to want to know how many subscribers
they have, which items in their feeds attract the
most interest, or how many click-throughs are generated
as a result of an RSS feed.
Develop Quality Content to Rule the Web
2005 literally took the world by storm. The tragedies
of the Asian Tsunami, the Hurricanes that blew through
the US Gulf Coast and the earthquakes that swallowed
parts of Pakistan have left an indelible mark on
2005. While mother nature cast a shadow on 2005,
it was technology that delivered the impact that
resulted in a huge outpouring of donations. The
world was touched by the human element seen real-time
in pictures and videos. Today's technology was able
to deliver the graphical grittiness that portrayed
the nightmares occurring half a world away.
