    Hello there,

    Now I don't know if this is possible and I have been looking around for the answer but I couldn't find it. I have a bans type site that I'm looking to put a rss feed on that can update based on the keyword that has been selected.

    So basically when a customer come to my site lets just say they search for the word ipod. My website will display all items listed on ebay for ipods however I would like to have an article on ipod also show up.

    I have found a rss script that is called rss to html but don't really know how to use it so I am playing around at the moment. Does anyone know of an easy way to do this?

    Thanks
    residnt

    One of the things that I found was to use yahoo pipes. I am still trying to figure out on how to find more feeds to aggregate tho.

    Go to pipes.yahoo.com

    That is a very interesting tool however I don't think that is what I'm looking for. What I am trying to do is on my web page to take the keyword that is currently being searched and display an article based off of that. Now I don't know if this is possible or not.

    Thanks

    Hmmmm, I guess this isn't possible. I guess what I will do is manually get some articles for my pages and just have them rotate. I could gather quite a few rather quickly and rewrite them. Hopefully this will get me website listed again.

    Thanks for the info. I will be looking at blog slammer and seeing if this is what I need or not. Google alert just sends me updates into my e-mail which isn't what I want so I will not be going with that product. Again thanks for the tips

    Hmmmm after looking at the information for blog slammer it doesn't appear to be what I want either. What I am looking to do is have an rss feed be custom generated. I don't know if i'm describing it correctly.

    Lets say this is my website www.mysite.com and when the user clicks on a keyword or does a search the address changes to www.mysite.com/keyword.html. Now what I want to happen is the rss reader will display an article or 2 based on the keyword that is in the address. It looks like I would need to have many rss feeds urls as there isn't really a repository or one feed to rule them all so this maybe a wasted effort for me as I wouldn't be able to control what the user is searching for.

    Does this make more sense?

    thanks residnt

    Oh I get it now. When I was looking at the website I thought it was something different. So when I use this tool I would need to manually enter in the search term to create the rss feed.

    Thanks
