Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
create rss feeds using the Title and description in each website.
Store that xml file on my website
submit that rss feed to the many rss directories online.
Anyone can help with this....
Unlike with some of the wordpress blogs I have that have both title and actual description in each item of the RSS feed.
Its becoming a real Challenge. I saw something on Labnol on how to create one, but it looks time consuming and not to mention the submission part later.
So isnt there a sofware that will scrape the actual page title, description and create an item in proper XML format?
This of course with the link in the title.
I have some sites that I manually update RSS for, but I don't trust those scraper packages. I just add the info I want in a text editor directly. Then I know the feed has what I want in it. However, those feeds don't update all that often.
The simple option would be for you to incorporate a blog software, like MovableType, to be part of the publishing of your articles. The software publishes the HTML into your page template, and then you use the software's back end to create the RSS and ping the directories. I've done this with one site and it's simple and works just fine. MT generates static HTML pages by default, and you can specify the path/filename to match your site. It looks just like your own site.
