About LinkedIn Poster

LinkedIn PosterLinkedIn Poster allows automatically share content from content feeds to your LinkedIn pages. To start sharing content you need to set up a LinkedIn posting campaign.

To be able to create a LinkedIn posting campaign you need to sign up for any of RSS Ground membership plans.

You can have one or several posting campaigns running simultaneously, depending on your membership level limits.

Watch our quick user guide on how to create a posting campaign.

Here is an example of an automated Facebook page post made by RSS Ground:

Basic settings

You start creating your posting campaign with the addition of content feeds. You add them from Feeds Box, any of the content feeds generators or manually using "Add new feeds" > "Import feeds" option.

Note: all feeds you manually add to your posting campaigns are automatically added to your Feeds Box. Such feeds are considered "public feeds" and are subject to appropriate account limits.

As soon as content feeds are added you start to set up your campaign. You have two types of settings: Basic and Advanced. Only Basic settings are mandatory.

First thing you have to do in Basic settings is to Authenticate your LinkedIn user. Press Authenticate button, follow the steps and grant our app all requested permissions.

As soon as your LinkedIn user is authenticated a " Send posts to" option will appear. In the drop-down, you will see a list of all LinkedIn pages you can make posts to. You can select only 1 posting destination if you have Basic membership, and up to 3 - if you are on a paid membership. Same posts will be sent to all selected destinations simultaneously.

Please use "Search" option if you have a long list of pages. 

Finally, you set a  posting interval - how often you wish to make posts. The minimum interval size you can set depends on your membership level: from once in "every 24 hours" for Basic level, to "every 30 minutes" for Business level.

If basic settings are enough for you, name your campaign and save it. 

All your Facebook posting campaigns are saved in "Posting Campaigns" section of MY ACCOUNT. See our another user tutorial on how to manage your created posting campaigns.

Advanced settings

Share with - choose if you want to make your posts visible publicly or only to your 1st level connections. This option will only work with updates of your personal LinkedIn news feed.

Posting order - here you set the order in which content from your specified feeds will be processed and selected for posting.

  • Only new - only content newly added after the previous campaign run will be posted.
  • From newest to oldest - if there is no newly added content, most fresh but not yet posted content from the feeds will be posted.
  • From oldest to newest - content will be posted starting from the oldest.
  • Randomly - a random content from specified feeds will be posted.

If you wish to post only recent content to your LinkedIn pages, you are recommended to use "Only new" option.

If you wish to ensure the gradual update of your LinkedIn pages, you are recommended to use "From newest to oldest" option.

If you make posts from content feeds where timestamp does not matter, for example, product feeds or affiliate feeds, you may use "Random" option.

Note: no matter what option was used in "Posting order", duplicate content will never be used for posting.

Enable recycling - this option will allow to re-post already posted content over again. You can re-post the same item within the same posting campaign up to 5 times. 

"Recycling" option can be good for affiliate product feeds, or other content feeds where unique content is not a priority. Please use this option very carefully. Social networks don't like duplicate content.

Post only items with these keywords - specify one or several content filter keywords. Only content which mentions at least one of the specified keywords in its title or description will be posted.

Don't post items with these keywords - specify one or several content filter keywords. Content which mentions at least one of the specified keywords in its title or description will be excluded from posting.

Number of items to post – this option was deprecated. Right now you can post only one item at a time.

Advanced automation settings:
Start time/date - you can set a delayed start of your campaign.
Stop time/date - you can set a date to automatically stop your campaign.

Don't forget to name your posting campaign, otherwise, it will have a default generic name.
