Web feed

A web feed (or news feed) is a data format used for providing users with frequently updated content. Content distributors syndicate a web feed, thereby allowing users to subscribe to it. Collecting web feeds accessible in one spot is known as aggregation, which is performed by an aggregator.

A web feed is also sometimes referred to as a syndicated feed.

WordLift, in conjunction with WordPress currently supports the following web feeds to help you structure the navigation on your website and to syndicate your content:

  • http://yourwebsite/wl_entity_type/thing/feed (all entities type:thing)
  • http://yourwebsite/wl_entity_type/event/feed (all entities type:event)
  • http://yourwebsite/wl_entity_type/organization/feed (all entities type:organization)
  • http://yourwebsite/wl_entity_type/creativework/feed (all entities type:creativework)
  • http://yourwebsite/wl_entity_type/localbusiness/feed (all entities type:localbusiness)
  • http://yourwebsite/wl_entity_type/place/feed (all entities type:place)
  • http://yourwebsite/wl_entity_type/person/feed (all entities type:person)
  • http://yourwebsite/wl_topic/sport/feed (all articles related to “Sport”). WordLift helps you categorize contents by topic and classifies the same categories used by Wikipedia. These are dereferenceable as RDF resources following the DBpedia/Wikipedia URL encoding rules (i.e. – Social sciences -> http://dbpedia.org/resource/Category:Social_sciences) – entities in other words.
