Automated RSS Content

May 25th

RSS is eventually going to come under a heavy load. As marketers:

  • create more and more RSS content generation tools (this one was announced today)

  • the tool functionalities increase
  • competition will cause prices to drop

huge numbers of people are going to be using RSS to create automated content streams.

RSS will become the next blog comment in the evolution of search. Since the content is legible, and some technologies make it easy to grab many related posts on a given topic, it might be a bit hard for search engines to distinguish the difference between original blog posts and fake feeder blogs that just recompile market data from various sources. Some people may even make legitimate regular posts to combine with the automated streams to make them seem more legitimate or manually compiled.

With hundreds of channels on a given topic you know that search engines are going to be in for some fun. This is yet another reason it will be hard for search engines to move away from link based relevancy systems.

Some people do not appreciate the value of a concept, idea, or tool unless they have to pay for it.

Its more in the marketing than the value.

The tool you linked to is about creating a better blog and keeping your blog up to date. The tool I mentioned is designed for creating thousands of topically related pages to feed into the search engines.
