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 Directory
We have created a directory of RSS 2.0 namespace extensions. This will help users looking to expand their RSS functionality.

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 audience.

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.
