    Hello,

    Plain block of text have always been boring and most of them just prefer to skip reading them.

    Add an image to your post and it looks very attractive, makes the visitor read your post.

    From my personal experience I've found that 70% of the rss feeds are partial and they don't have any images.

    If we subscribe to their rss feeds and have it in our autoblog, it looks very simple and stupid.

    So the way out is having images for all the rss feeds that you are pulling.

    And that can be done using Yahoo Pipes.

    Visit the link below and just enter the RSS url feed and you should have relevant images for every post.

    Code:
    http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=fANepcMq3RGyO5QYw5tC8g
    After doing that, you can get those posts as RSS. ;)

    Nice idea... not sure I'd call the images relevant though, I tried multiple source URLs and they seemed to all pull completely random images. Is there a way to specify keywords for pulling the images? Ie if your autoblog was about classic cars, could you put keywords in to pull only car images?

    I get the impression that's what this pipe is supposed to do already, it just.. doesn't. :)

    Let me know if something just wasn't working with it when I tested it, as I'd love to use this if it works as you said!

    Using those pipes, we can get images for the feeds we enter there.

    Now, I get my feeds using Autoblogged, and it just pulls in RSS.

    Is there a way to get rss feeds with relevant flickr images in Autoblogged/Wp-o-matic/CC?
