10 more ways to create RSS feeds and News for your Content or CMS (Part 3)

10 ways to create RSS feeds & Google News for your Content or CMS

In my endeavor to expand on my first two articles I published in my still very green blog, I came across some great resources, thanks to Market Samurai an excellent SEO Program made by a talented group of dedicated people in Australia! I was able to extract some of their RSS feeds and transform them for you to make them fit your local, international or even extra-terrestrial content curating needs. Please review my first post to get a little bit of background on how to create Twitter-lists or Twitter single account RSS feeds as well as word searches with hash tags and much more!  While you are at it check out Part 2:  I summarized information concerning Flickr, YouTube and much more!! 
 
I want to give credit to Piers Dillon-Scott @pdscott an Irish neighbor, who runs an excellent website in Dublin! So let’s start creating those RSS feeds so that we can search our information gold nuggets, curate the appropriate content and satisfy our digital knowledge cravings!  
 
Okay let’s dive right into it and start with Flickr search! Last time we covered how to search Flickr from Twitter but now we will search directly within this wonderful treasure chest! Please review all the BOOLEAN search terms (AND, OR, MINUS) if you need and also bear in mind that your RSS feeds will need to be URL encoded!
 
1. Curating Pictures content from Flickr:
 
a) Creating your feed  made of “2 Parts”: http://m1.pipes.vip.sp1.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=4j69t3pl3RGllxMrbrsjiw&_render=rss&num=10&q=
So let’s say we are searching for: “Content Marketing” OR “Inbound Marketing” OR “Content Curation” (including the Boolean term: OR): http://m1.pipes.vip.sp1.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?id=4j69t3pl3RGllxMrbrsjiw&_render=rss&num=10&q=”Content Marketing” OR “Inbound Marketing” OR “Content Curation”.
 
b) URL encoding the feed:
http://m1.pipes.vip.sp1.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=4j69t3pl3RGllxMrbrsjiw&_render=rss&num=10&q=%22Content%20Marketin
g%22%20OR%20%22Inbound%20Marketing%22%20OR%20%22Content%20Curat
ion%22.
 
2. Curating key words from Google Blog Search:
 
a) Preparing the feed with the word: “content marketing” (3 Parts):
-“http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=”
-“Your search Query”
-“&ie=utf-8&num=25&output=rss&tbm=blg”.
Let’s add to the search the following terms: Content Marketing OR Inbound Marketing OR Convenience Marketing OR Content Curation:
 
b) URL encoding the feed (3 parts):
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=%22Content%20Marketing%22%20OR%20%22Inbound%20Marketing%22%20OR%20%22Convenience%20Marketing%22%20%22Content%20Curation%22%20OR%20Curating&ie=utf-&num=10&output=rss&tbm=blg.
 

– It is possible to combine any BOOLEAN terms in your search with: OR, AND or MINUS, which can also be written “-“ (View previous posts for a review of this subject). 
– You may also vary the number of “entries” you are requesting: The default value is 10 (the third part of the above feed): Increase it or decrease it at your leisure: if too high, Google will (most likely) not understand your query!
– So remember URL encoded you are not allowed to have any spaces: 
 
3. Curating Content from Google News:
 
a) Preparing the feed with the word: “content marketing”:
http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=us&q=”Content Marketing”&ie=UTF-8&nolr=1&output=rss&num=10.
 
b) URL encoding the feed amd adding more terms including OR:
“Content Marketing” OR “Inbound Marketing” OR “Convenience Marketing” OR “Content Curation” OR Curation:
http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=us&q=%22Content%20Marketing%22%20OR%20%22Inbound%20Mar
keting%22%20OR%20%22Convenience%20Marketing%22%20OR%20$22Content
