How to Integrate an RSS Feed to AWeber

Have you ever wanted to keep up with all of the latest news or info on a certain topic, but didn’t have the time to keep checking social media websites, or visiting multiple news websites? If so, you’ve come the right place. In this blog post, we’ll teach you how to integrate an RSS feed with AWeber. With RSS feeds, you can keep up with all of the latest news or info on a certain topic without having to check social media websites, or visit multiple news websites.

What is RSS?

Perhaps you’ve heard of RSS. If not, it’s not a strange acronym. It’s an XML-based format that was first introduced in 1995. What makes RSS special is the concept of syndication. With syndication, you can add content from one website to your own. This is incredibly beneficial because it means you don’t have to create and maintain a brand new blog. You can simply add content from an existing source to your own, using a tool like Feedly. This is why RSS is often referred to as “content syndication.”

Let’s say you’re planning on starting a new blog on WordPress.com. Wouldn’t it be great to have a plugin that enabled you to add and aggregate the content from all of the reputable news websites, such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and BuzzFeed? That’s what RSS enables you to do.

Why Should You Integrate An RSS Feed to AWeber?

There are quite a few advantages to having an RSS feed integrated with AWeber. To begin with, RSS feeds are self-sufficient. This means that you don’t need to check the blogs or websites that you’re syndicating from to see if they have new content. You can simply check the RSS feed itself, in case there’s new content there. This makes RSS feeds valuable time-savers, because you don’t have to visit every single blog to see if they’ve updated since your last visit.

In addition, RSS feeds are search engine friendly. This is because content that’s been uploaded to RSS feeds contains a variety of keywords and relevant phrases, making it much easier for web users to discover when they’re searching for info on a particular topic. In other words, if you’re creating an RSS feed for a business or brand, it’s a great idea to incorporate key phrases and keywords throughout the content that you distribute via RSS.

Last but not least, RSS feeds make it much easier for your customers to find and connect with you on social media websites. If your business is already active on social media platforms such as Twitter and Pinterest, having an RSS feed is very easy and convenient. Your customers can simply subscribe to your RSS feed, and you’ll be notified whenever they make a post, whether it’s about your product or service, or related to your industry. When they respond to a post that you’ve shared on your social media accounts, you’ll be notified of the activity, and can engage with them directly via RSS.

How to Integrate an RSS Feed to AWeber

So you’ve decided that you want to add an RSS feed to AWeber. How exactly do you do that? The process is relatively simple, but there are a few things that you need to keep in mind.

RSS Feed URL

The first thing that you need to do is to enter the RSS feed URL of the site that you’re syndicating from. The best practice is to create a dedicated RSS feed for each website. For example, if you have a business website, create a separate RSS feed for that website that includes all of the content that you want to distribute. When entering the RSS feed URL, make sure that you use http:// instead of https://. This is important because if your feed URL ends in “https,” AWeber will consider that URL to be a secure connection, and ask you for your user name and password, which you need to provide.

Categories

Once you’ve entered the URL of the RSS feed, you need to begin creating your categories. AWeber makes it easy to choose the categories that you want to include in your RSS feed. Simply enter the category names (usually in alphabetical order) that you want to appear in the RSS feed. As a general rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to create a separate RSS feed for each category that you’ve chosen. For example, if you’re creating an RSS feed for sports, create one for football (soccer) news, and another RSS feed for baseball news.

Automatically Updated

The next thing that you need to do is decide whether you want the RSS feed to update automatically or manually. If you choose the former, then all of the content that you include in your RSS feed will be immediately pulled down from the source, and a summary of the article will be served up to you. You can choose this option if you want to keep up with the latest news or info on your industry. The disadvantage is that you need to remember to check back regularly, to ensure that the RSS feed is up to date. In most cases, this is not a feasible option, as you’ll most likely be busy yourself. If you choose the latter, then each article that you include in your RSS feed will be presented to you individually, when you visit the site that the article comes from. You can choose this option if you want to keep track of specific events or happenings that are related to your industry. The disadvantage is that you will have to remember to visit the source site, and click the “read more” button, to see the full content. This can be a cumbersome process, particularly if you want to keep up with the latest news articles or info on your industry. For this reason, it’s a good idea to choose the automatically updated option, if you’re using RSS for an existing blog or website. Otherwise, you can simply choose to manually update the RSS feed, whenever you visit the source site, and click the “read more” button.

The last step is to confirm the details of your RSS feed. When you finish creating it, simply hit the “save” button, and you’ll be ready to distribute the content via RSS. Remember that you don’t need to distribute content via RSS, if you don’t want to. You can simply leave the settings as they are, and AWeber will continue to pull down content from your industry-related websites, using the automatically updated option.

With RSS, you can quickly and easily create an aggregated news page for yourself, and keep up with all of the latest news or info on your industry. It’s the perfect solution for those who want to keep up with everything that’s happening in their industry, without having to keep visiting individual websites to see if they’ve updated since their last visit.
