How to bring only certain news from a blog or website to ContentBreeze

ContentBreeze allows you to segment the news brought in from a certain website, so it can bring automatically import only those news stories and topics that are related to your niche and omit the rest.

ContentBreeze does this by importing news that belongs only to a certain tag or category or that have specific words in the title.  Other news stories will be ignored, so your news content is always on point with your site content.

This is especially helpful if, for example, you have a niche site about a topic that very few websites and blogs concentrate upon.  Let’s say that you have a niche news website about the dog breed, Dalmatians. When you do a search, you find a few blogs that only cover this breed, but most blogs about dogs cover other breeds as well.

In this case, ContentBreeze, lets you bring only posts and news about Dalmatians from those general blogs about dogs.  When you find an appropriate blog, check out how that site organizes the content.  Look for tags or categories and sub-categories which are highly relevant for your niche. In most cases, tags and categories will be listed in the sidebar of the site. (show example of blog on dogs with breed Dalmatian)

Once you find the appropriate content, you can set ContentBreeze up to bring in only the posts classified under that category or tag.   If you see that they are already classifying their news by the category or tag,  check the URL to see  if there is a specific RSS for that category. If there is, use the information they provide to you in order to bring in the news you want.  If there is no RSS feed, you can still bring the news by following the instructions you find here.

An alternative to using  a specific category or tag, would be news or posts that have a certain keyword or keywords in the title (for example, Dalmatian) and only bring that news.  You can see how to do this, here.

For WordPress blogs and others

Some blogs will have tags, others will have categories, and other websites will have both things. The best way to import news from a certain category or tag is through its RSS feed.  Many sites will have category tag specific RSS feed links, for example, WordPress does this by default.  Other sites have it too., so take a look around the site or do a search to locate it.

If you find a site that has a category or tag you are interested on and do not see a specific RSS for that category, try putting the word “feed” at the end of the URL. Even if a site does not have a RSS for a category, you could still bring the news from that site in using this feature (link).

 

For example:

http://www.dogsblog.com/category/dalmatian/

The feed could be found at

http://www.dogsblog.com/category/dalmatian/feed/

Same for tags:

http://deafdogsrock.com/tag/dalmatian

http://deafdogsrock.com/tag/dalmatian/feed

Using Google to find blogs and web sites that have a category or tag you are interested in

Besides going to aspecific site or sites, you can also search Google for sites that have categories with the specific keywords you are looking for. But, How do you find those sites?

One of the most common ways for sites to organize categories, especially WordPress sites, is by having the word category or tag followed by keyword/s in its URL.

Following this logic, you can find sites that have a category for your keywords.  To find them, you will need to use specific Google’s search parameters.

For example, to find sites that have news related to a category, do the following search:

Inurl:/category/[keyword]

For example: inurl:category/dalmatian. You will find results like this.

This is the same for tags. If you search: Inurl:/tag/[keyword], for example: inurl:tag/dalmatian. You will find results like this.

If you see that Google does not filter the results very well and your search may bring back a lot of junk. If this is the case, then you should go one step further. For example, specifying WordPress sites like this:

inurl:/category/dalmation wordpress.  You can see this in action here.

You can do the same above for tags,for example, the search string: inurl:/tag/dalmatian wordpress.  You can see this in action here.  Try different keywords within  your niche to see what sites have specific categories and tags for them.
