RSS (most commonly known as Really Simple Syndication) is a feed format used to publish and subscribe to frequently-updated information — such as news headlines, articles, press releases, blog posts, products listing, service/product reviews, job positions, audio/video media, discussion forums etc. — in a standardized format.
Feedity is a revolutionary service that can instantly generate feeds for virtually any public webpage. Feeds created with Feedity automatically update as new or updated content appears on the source webpage. Read through the About page for more information.
Feeds are widely used for centralized reading (subscription) and distribution (publishing) of Web content. Feeds are proven to be an effective medium for media monitoring, buzz tracking, market intelligence, competitive intelligence, business research, content marketing, aggregation, publishing etc. Feeds are also beneficial in SEO, visitor/user engagement and improvement of content reach.
Anyone can create custom feeds with Feedity in seconds, and subscribe to the feeds in any news reader application, or display the feed(s) on a website (as an embeddable widget or a direct subscription link) for website visitors. Podcast feeds with audio/video media can also be created and submitted to the Apple iTunes Store for a wider reach. Feeds can also be displayed in mobile apps (iPhone, Android, Windows Phone etc.), used for data analysis, or even as custom APIs.
Feedity generates standard-compliant RSS 2.0 feeds. Each item element in a feed contains the title, link, summary/description with image (available in Plus plan and above) and published date (available in Plus plan and above).
Our service will work with any public webpage that outputs HTML content. Feedity will allow you to create RSS feeds for any webpage with dynamic content (i.e. frequently-updated) like news headlines, articles, press releases, blog posts, products listing, service/product reviews, job positions, audio/video media, discussion forums etc.
No. You don't have to download or install anything. Feedity is a Web-based application, which means that all you need to use Feedity is a modern Web browser (like Google Chrome or Firefox) and an Internet connection. It runs on our fast and reliable servers.
We offer various paid plans, and a free trial for evaluation purposes. All paid plans come with a 7 day money-back guarantee. There are no setup fees (except for some Corporate plan accounts) and no cancellation fees.
Update interval is the time gap between each feed update. Different plans support different update intervals for all the feeds. Some restrictions like automatic throttling and volume limit apply for feeds of popular websites (like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn etc.). Contact us to enquire about these restrictions.
Each feed contains a list of items (i.e. articles). Different plans support different number of articles per feed. Most feed reader applications preserve past articles so you can still see a running history, although the feed may only have newer articles.
Feed analytics allows tracking of number of hits and last requested date for each feed. It also shows the most requested (i.e. most popular) feeds as a bar graph. Please refer to our blog post for details: Simple Feed Analytics with Charts. This feature is available in the Starter plan and above.
Feed titles can be edited by clicking the bold title on the Feed Builder page when creating or editing a feed. This feature is available in the Starter plan and above.
Feeds created with Feedity are based on the structure and syntax (HTML code) of the source webpage. If the source webpage structure or markup changes, it can affect the data extraction and the feed will stop picking up new items. As part of this feature, an email notification can be sent to the feed owner (creator), for the feed to be edited and revalidated, so that it can resume picking up relevant items. Please refer to our blog post: Podcast Feeds and Broken Feed Notifications. This feature is available in the Plus plan and above.
Feed merging allows aggregation of multiple feeds into a single master feed (Stream). Please refer to our blog post for details: Aggregate Multiple Feeds for RSS Stream. This feature is available in the Plus plan and above.
A typical feed has multiple items (articles). Each item has a title, description, published date and a link. Feedity can extract all four item blocks in order to automatically create a valid RSS feed. Please refer to our blog post: Extract Item Descriptions. This feature is available in the Plus plan and above.
Published date for each item (i.e. article) can be extracted, and auto-set in the feed, if it's available on the source webpage. Please refer to the Help tab (under Feed Builder) or our blog post for details: Aggregate Multiple Feeds for RSS Stream. This feature is available in the Plus plan and above.
An image for each item (i.e. article) can be extracted, if images are published near, or as part of, the title or description (full text or summary) for each item block on the source webpage. This feature is available in the Plus plan and above.
