Screen scraping your way into RSS

(Page 3 out of 3)

In this tutorial I have shown you how to create a RSS feed from a website that does not have a RSS feed themselves yet. Though the regular expression is different for each website, the principle is exactly the same.

One thing I should mention is that you shouldn�t immediately screen scrape a website�s content. E-mail them first about a RSS feed. Who knows, they might set one up themselves, and that would be even better.
