Hi guys,

So I want to use Feeds as the source of my content in WP Automatic. How can I know the feed of the blogs I want WP Automatic to scrape content from?

Can I just add the blog URL as the feed URL in the WP Automatic settings without having to worry about the feed URL? Will it work?

How do you get the URL?

@Festinger I would love your input on this as well. Thanks.
 
If they are wordpress sites, they usually have rss feeds on their homepage by adding /feed or /rss to their homepage.

For example, if the site is blackhatworld.com, the rss feed would bee blackhatworld.com/ feed or /rss

How about if their blog is a subdomain like blog.example.com ? Will the RSS feed be something like blog.example.com/rss or the main domain example.com/rss

Look at another scenario:
example.com/blog
Will the rss feed be something like example.com/blog/rss ?
It bugs me a little as the many forward slash in front of the domain name looks weird example.com/blog/rss

It's been quite a while since I've used wordpress as nowadays I do php + html, but yes, even in subdomains or subfolders it should work like that

I hope. I just don't want to flop it.
What if the website is not a WordPress site and you want to scrape its content?

Usually sites have rss feeds or sitemaps, but sometimes they don't have any of those, so what I do is google [site:domain.com "keywords here"] to get all the indexed pages of the sites.
 
Test . Test. test.

This is all part of your technical design

You test this hundreds of times before going into production

Can someone answer my question:
If a keyword is entered in wp automatic they scrape articles by that keyword, and they scrape 10 articles (depending on the settings), isn't it bad for SEO to have 10 articles with the same keyword?
How then to get one article from several keywords?
It is not clear to me how they scrape articles for a given one or more keywords and that this is good for SEO.
Did I misunderstand something?
I'm not a user of this plugin, but I thought I'd give it a try.

This is absolutely not how the plugin works.
