I knew that moreover had a list of category feeds, what I didn’t know is that you can make your own RSS search feeds…you can even save a list of the feeds you have made.
Make your own news here.
FeedDirect is a tool that will re-syndicate the feed from RSS to Java.
On an earlier post I was lamenting the fact that I didn’t know which news aggregator to rely on (must allow RSS search feeds), so I use Topix.net, Yahoo! News, and Google News…now I have moreover to add to the mix.
I really need to do the same search feed on all these 4 news aggregators and see the differences, because reading all of them has way too much duplication, but there are the unique stories that pop up.
Can any news librarians shed any light…as I don’t know where each of these news aggregators are sourcing the news from themselves.
I believe moreover results are already covered in Yahoo! News via this press release…so maybe I can just rely on Yahoo! News to read news gathered by moreover.
Also noticed that you can limit Yahoo! News to “All Web” or “Yahoo! News Only” (syntax becomes source: Yahoo)…so if you search “Yahoo! News Only” this must not include the results from moreover.
Even if they do source news from the same source the results will be different, because it’s the news they choose to show in the search results according to the mechanics of the individual search engine…so the same content is in there somewhere, it’s just how it is extracted and sorted that will show different results.
