How to Create a News Aggregator as an Online Side Business

Table of contents

We’ve had a number of customers asking us whether it’s possible to create a website similar to Alltop, or asking whether it’s possible to create a fully-functional auto-blog website using WP RSS Aggregator.

The simple answer is YES.

The website.

In this great post from Rob Freeman you’ll find a quick and easy tutorial on how to create a website similar to Alltop that brings together all the latest news on a particular topic through the use of Google Alerts RSS feeds. It’s also a great way of creating your very own online side business through advertisements.

It’s all possible using only the free core version of WP RSS Aggregator and any free WordPress theme out there, and you can have it all set up within a very short time-frame.

Should you wish to make the feed look more attractive you can always opt for our premium Excerpts and Thumbnails add-on, and if you want to take it even further and create your very own auto-blog, you can choose to work with our very popular Feed to Post add-on.

Take a look at how Rob Freeman created his website and give it a go yourself.

  1. Alltop is a very biased aggregator. I am building a non-partisan website and Alltop has virtually no convservative sites returned on a search. Put in conservative news sites and it returns the same as putting in liberal sites. If someone can fill that void, they may get some business..

  2. Hi – the link to Rob Freeman’s post brings up his website and there is no relevant blog post I can find. Please check and provide the correct link.

    1. Hi Ashish, it seems the post has since been removed 🙁 This post was published almost two years ago now, so Rob might have removed it as his site seems to have changed too. If you have any questions feel free to direct them to our support team, we’ll be more than happy to answer them.
