The news of the day is on all the time, All the latest gossip, all the latest rhyme, Your mind is your temple, keep it beautiful and free, Don’t let an egg get laid in it by something you can’t see.’ – Bob Dylan
Is your engineering web site a little pedestrian? If so, then why not brighten it up a tad by incorporating the latest news headlines from e4engineering?
Oooh yes, I’d like to do that, I hear you say. But I bet it would cost an arm and a leg, wouldn’t it? Well, no! The good news is that it won’t cost you a penny! That’s right! Now, you can place a newsfeed from our very own e4engineering.com right on your own site absolutely free of charge!
Our Internet Skunk Works team have been slaving twenty-four-seven over their PDP-11s for the past month to make it all happen. And now they have! Working with the chaps at EEVL, the Internet guide for Engineering, Mathematics and Computing, they have developed three RSS feeds that you can use to get news, jobs, and the latest engineering tenders from our sister site e4subcon.com delivered to your web page.
So what the heck is an RSS feed, then? Well, RSS can stand for ‘Rich Site Summary’, ‘RDF Site Summary’ or ‘Really Simple Syndication’ depending on who you ask and which version they are speaking about. Put simply though, RSS is a format for sharing content on the web.
An RSS feed (also known as an RSS file or RSS channel) consists of a list of items, each of which contains a title, description and a link to our web page. Once an RSS file is made available on a web site such as e4engineering, interested parties like yourselves can simply gather the file from our site and reuse the content.
So what do you guys get out of it, I hear you ask? Surely, this is all too good to be true? Well, yes. We’re not doing this for purely altruistic purposes, that’s for sure. While you get the www.e4engineering headlines and a brief description of the news, if the reader wants to read more, he’s got to click on a link that will take him to the e4 site. So the amount of page impressions on e4engineering skyrockets. This, in turn, means that our lucky advertising lads Dan and Andy can get more advertising. And when they do, the editors get a healthy pay raise. (In your dreams, pal – Ed.)
It’s a win-win situation for everyone, really.
So if you’d like to use our RSS feeds to supplement the remuneration of your hard working e4 editors, just tell your web development team to point their browsers to the links below.
And start spreading the news.
