Create RSS Feeds with Web Scraping Software
Creating an RSS feed can be helpful for many different reasons. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS feeds allow you to view the information you want to from the different websites you normally view, but without the hassle of having to visit every different website. It creates a list of all the updates to your favorite websites. Creating these feeds can be easy with the right tools. With knowledge of html, you can create an RSS feed from any website, even if that website doesn't have it's own RSS feed. Html scraping can help you to create RSS feeds. Many people will even scrape their own content in order to easily create an RSS feed. If you are harvesting other people's content remember to give credit and a link back to the author. Mozenda has the easiest system to scrape web content and turn it into and RSS feed.
