    [GUIDE] Any Content Jacking

    Hi everybody,

    I am not (yet) an expert in autoblogging, but I'll try to explain to beginners how to get content from sources that have no RSS feeds. The advantage of this technique is that it can work with no basic blogs like Wordpress (...), which can push the limits ! Obviously this is a bit more complicated...

    Principle is easy : we will call a service (free or paid) that will transform a website or a query (search, ...) in a RSS feed, by identifying manually the title, content, ... with few variables (in blue below).
    The service will then retrieve the informations indicated and included in a RSS feed.

    More clearly :
    Code:
    <html>
    ...
    <body>
    ...
    <h1>[COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{POST TITLE}[/COLOR]</h1>
    ...
    <div class="content">
    [COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{CONTENT}[/COLOR]
    </div>
    ...
    </body>
    </html>
    Need a basic example ? Ok !
    Code:
    [U]URL :[/U] 
    http://www.itsnicethat.com/
    
    [U]Global pattern :[/U]
    [COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{*}[/COLOR]
    <div class="col col5">
    [COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{%}[/COLOR]
    </div>
    [COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{*}[/COLOR]
    
    [U]Item pattern :[/U]
    [COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{*}[/COLOR]
    <h2><a href="[COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{%}[/COLOR]">[COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{%}[/COLOR]</a>[COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{%}[/COLOR]</h2>
    [COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{*}[/COLOR]
    
    [U]Output :[/U]
    Item 1
    [COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{%1}[/COLOR] = http://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/dana-schutz
    [COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]{%2}[/COLOR] = Dana Schutz
    Of course you should be familiar with HTML, and if this is not the case it will be a good idea to learn.
