Yahoo Pipes – The Future of RSS Content Aggregation?
I’ve just been watching Matt McAlister’s vidcast on Yahoo Pipes. I’ve been trying to do similar things with rss aggregators for the past couple years, with some success. Notably, I had built a categorized feed aggregator for Reel-Time.com – which eventually fell down because we had so few real bloggers.
I’m thinking that Yahoo Pipes could be an interesting way to deliver timely niche content to a site. It allows you to analyze the content to some degree, hence you ought to be able to do a fine level analysis. Might be a help for businesses in niche sectors to increase their traffic without actually having write original content on a daily basis.
If you’ve got a need in this area, I’m interested in talking – a good test case is definitely called for here.
