How to get targeted content in RSS Ground?

If you can't watch the above video tutorial, please read the text version below.

In RSS Ground we use content feeds to provide you with fresh high-quality content. We distinguish two types of content feeds: Public and Private.

Public feeds are freely available on the Internet. And in RSS Ground you can search a database of over 500,000 public feeds.

Private feeds, unlike public feeds, cannot be found on the Internet. They need to be generated based on a content source, your list of keywords, and custom filters.

Public feeds

To start searching for public feeds, you need to go to the ACCOUNT section and click on the Add content dropdown. Then choose Search public feeds.

Also, you can use the main navigation menu: FEEDS - Search public feeds:

Finally, you can use the same option in the Feeds Box:

We have a separate video that explains in great detail how to search, filter, and manage public feeds.

Private feeds

To start searching for private feeds, you need to go to the ACCOUNT section and click on the Add content dropdown. Then choose Generate private feeds.

Also, you can use the main navigation menu: FEEDS - Generate private feeds:

Finally, you can use the same option in the Feeds Box:

Then you choose a content provider:

Each private feed generator has 2 groups of settings: Basic and Advanced. 

Only Basic settings are mandatory. Advanced settings contain several filters and will help you to further tweak your content feeds. Though advanced filters are optional, they are very helpful to more targeted content. 

Basically, you just need to specify a keyword to generate a private feed. Some content providers require your personal keys. In the case of affiliate content feeds, you will have an option to specify your affiliate ID to automatically embed into the product links.

We will cover all Basic and Advanced settings in individual tutorials for each content source.  

When you are done with the settings, press the GENERATE button. 

You have several options for what you can do with your new content feeds:

  • Just save them to your Feeds Box for later use;
  • Add them to Feeds Reader and follow the latest updates;
  • Add them to a new or existing posting campaign to make automated posts to your blogs or social network pages;
  • Or, add them to a new or existing content widget that can display self-updating content on your website.

You can learn more about each option in our separate videos.

Personal feeds

To have full control over the content provided in content feeds, we highly recommend paying attention to one more type of content feeds in RSS Ground - personal feeds. 
Personal feeds - are private content feeds that consist of posts composed manually or/and items added from other content feeds.
Personal feeds allow you to create your own content (write posts, articles, save images). But what is more remarkable, you can add content to your personal feeds from other feeds and then edit it. This way you can fully curate the content. 

Other ways to get content in RSS Ground

Besides searching, generating, and creating content feeds in RSS Ground, you can add your favorite content feeds to RSS Ground manually. All content feeds will be saved to your Feeds Box and can be used in other RSS ground tools.

In the Feeds Box, you can use the Add content - Import feeds option:

When you manually add content feeds in your posting campaigns, they are also saved to the Feeds Box:

And you can subscribe to content feeds in the Feeds Reader:

In the Feeds Reader, you can use the import OPML file option and upload the list of your content feeds at once. You need to go to the advanced Feeds Reader settings - Feeds - OPML:

Content feed limits

When you get new content and add feeds to your Feeds Box, pay attention to your account limits in the upper-right corner. If you hit the limit you would need to upgrade your account.
