RSS Scripts Directory
We have recieved access requests from customers
interested the various scripts we have compiled.
Registered users of FeedForAll and FeedForAll
Mac have free access to the scripts directory.
We've added an additional access options for users
who do not use FeedForAll. Access to the RSS Scripts
Directory is available for a flat fee of $ 29.95.
The scripts directory currently contains RSS Cache,
FutureRSS, RSSmesh, and of course rss2html.php
The RSS Scripts Directory Contains:
RSS Cache is now included in the scripts
directory. FeedForAll is pleased to announce the
release of rss2html Cache. This new module allows
users of the rss2html.php script the ability to
have their source RSS feeds cached, significantly
speeding up the web page display time. The new
rss2html Cache module will expedite the retrieval
and conversion of RSS feeds into html web pages.
Once the feed is cached it will be read from the
local hard drive for a specified amount of time.
After the specified time has lapsed, the RSS feed
will be fetched again. The script is available
free of charge to all registered users of FeedForAll
and FeedForAll Mac.
RSSmesh is a script that enables webmasters
to merge the contents of multiple RSS feeds into
a single feed.
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:
Namespace allow publishers to expand upon the
fields defined by the RSS specfication. We have
created a directory of RSS 2.0 namespace extensions.
This will help users looking to expand their RSS
Realtors and RSS
Daily more and more realtors are turning to
RSS as a tool to market homes for sale. The growing
RSS phenomenon in the realty market makes perfect
sense. Unlike email RSS feeds have a 100% delivery
rate. In addition the costs involved in creating
and managing an RSS feed are insignificant when
compared to the print advertising Realtors spend
on each week. Imagine the amount spent each week
to promote various properties in circulars and
weekly newspapers, compared to the costs associated
with updating and managing an RSS feed.
Monetizing RSS Feeds
Publishers are evaluating options and determining
how they can profit from RSS feeds. The two obvious
contenders that publishers are considering to
profit from their RSS feeds are: subscription
RSS feeds and RSS feed advertisements.
Organic Search Engine Optimization
The fabled tales of successfully tricking search
engines into high rankings have given way to a
new truth: to achieve decent consistent ranking,
you cannot engage in tricks but on focused optimization
done in a professional ethical manner. According
to search sources, with the latest Google update,
there is no longer an even playing field when
it comes to search placement. The new Google ranking
system gives an advantage to large, established
businesses that have achieved brand recognition.
Does this mean small businesses should give up
on the Web as a marketing model? No, of course
not, they simply must develop quality content.
Delicious is a social bookmarking system, that
is notable, not only for its unusual web address
http://del.icio.us, but for its unusual approach
to content building that is becoming increasingly
popular. In order to ease the burden of producing
consistent stream of fresh content, publishers
are turning to users to build, categorize and
qualify content. While this is said to be part
of the web 2.0 phenomenon, publishers realize
the value of collaboration. http://www.feedforall.com/delicious-rss.htm
