A new vB3 forum I'm doing will offer this, and I DO think it will generate a few new visitors. To echo zigx's question, is anyone deriving good referrals from a forum feed right now?
And, any suggestions on how to effectively promote the availability of a feed? My thought was to put a visible headline or graphic, "Put Our Top Topics On Your Site" or similar, with a link to a page with some detailed instructions (and links to free scripts, etc.). I don't think a little "XML" button is enough in the current stage of development.
Another thought would be to include the link to the feed within the forum in a pinned thread.
This could work nicely actually and would be a great way to get some niche specific sites with a good amount of relevant content in no time.
Of course you have to be the only one using the feed as u might be penalized for duped content.
It seems like the basic concept might be viable, and if your mirror site was sufficiently different in presentation and coding you could probably avoid current dupe content filters. Whether such an arrangement would survive a human review (after a competitor reported you have #1 and #2 positions with dupe content) is harder to say.
Or did I miss the point completely? ;)
