Most savvy internet marketers will know how important it is to have fresh content added to their sites on a daily basis but the problem sometimes is to find the time and/or content. Adding an RSS feed is a good way to add fresh content to a site, but the problem again is that most of them only get updated on a weekly basis.
I have been wracking my brains trying to find a semi- automated way to do this to make my life a little bit easier. The search engines are always looking for fresh content - adding random RSS feeds seemed to be the answer!
So I did so some searches on the Internet to see what is available. A search for "add random content to site" sure enough brought up a bevy of links - most of which went to sites that wanted to sell me their products for hundreds of dollars!
Having been on the Internet for quite a while I know by now that most of the information that is on sale can most times be found with just a little bit of work. So I refined my searches somewhat and I found a gem that I would like to share with you for?. You guessed it - free! It will take a bit of work from your side to tweak the script a bit, but it's worth it, right?
First you will have to head over to: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/randomiframe.htm and copy the available java script. This displays a little content box 130x130. Go on, before they decide to start selling it!
Paste the script into your favorite editor and make the following changes:
To change it to display your content you will have to make the box a little bigger. To achieve that you have to change this piece of code:
I have mine set to width=500 height=800 but you should change it to fit your content. Play around with it a bit and change the width or height where necessary. If you do not want a frame around your content, change this piece of code:
frameborder="1" to frameborder="0
To display your content, you will have to create html pages for it. For now, just create a blank html page, I will show you later where to get the content for it.
As you can see, the script calls the pages like this:
randomcontent="random1.htm" - change the "random" to whatever you want to call your created html page - e.g. successstory1.htm.
You can basically display unlimited pages with this script. To add more pages to display, just add:
e.g. randomcontent="random5.htm", randomcontent="random6.htm" etc.
You can now add the script to any page that you want to display random content on.
To get free rss content to rotate, head on over to http://www.goarticles.com They also have literally thousands of free articles that you can use for fresh content on your site. Add the code for the rss scripts to the blank html pages that you have created (or an article if you so prefer) then upload all your pages to your server.
Make sure that the page that you are calling them from (the page with the randomizer java script) and your content pages are in the same directory, otherwise you will have to change the path to the pages in the java script code!
If you would like to get more rss feeds, just do a search for "free rss feeds" on any of the search engines.
So, there you have it. Randomized rss content for your site without having to pay a cent.
Enjoy your fresh content and the increased traffic!
