WP Mayor uses WP RSS Aggregator to aggregate WordPress jobs from various sources. It chooses the best sources for the latest jobs in WordPress, ranging from content writers to those looking for specific developers, and lists them down by source using the shortcodes.
If you’re involved in setting up a website for a local community on any topic, it’s a great idea to set up a simple website that aggregates content from all the local stakeholders.
Say you want to set up a blogging community for your city; you could import all posts from the bloggers involved onto the community website. This can prove to be the initial keystone for creating that community.
Perhaps the best example of this is the WP News Desk website. This site fetches the latest posts from over 100 of the most popular blogs in the WordPress community and aggregates them.
It then links the reader directly to the original post, making sure the original author gets full credit for their work. Yet another perfect use case for WP RSS Aggregator.
With the Feed to Post add-on installed, you can easily set up a newsletter to go out every week. To do this, you will need the MailPoet newsletter plugin or similar. The process is simple. Set up a custom post type and import all items into this post type.
You can set up a custom post type that is not shown on the front end, but serves purely to store the imported feed items. Then when setting up the weekly newsletter, you can just drag and drop posts from this custom post type into your newsletter.
On WP Mayor we explain exactly how to create a mobile app for your news curation website.
Nowadays we tend to create content not only on several of our own WordPress websites, but also on social networks, forums etc. It is therefore useful to create a site which aggregates all your online activity in one location.
A perfect example is the personal site of Joe Can Write, a fellow WordPress expert. He pulls in his content that gets published on a range of websites, from web design blogs, online marketing resources, WordPress theme and plugin shops, and a whole lot more.
You can pull in events via RSS feeds and create a local events site with the latest events in your location, or for any niche. For example, you can share the tech events taking place this month in your city.
Our documented filters allow you to also import events that are future-dated, ensuring that they are displayed on your site early, notifying your visitors with plenty of time to spare.
Some online retailers (such as a Amazon) let you create a feed of items with your affiliate ID appended to the links of those items. This means that you can create a page on your site with, say, the latest WordPress books.
Then, when users click through and purchase, you will get your affiliate commission. This makes it much easier than building the page manually, plus it's always updated with the latest changes.
Perhaps not one of the first use cases that comes to mind, however, using WP RSS Aggregator with the Feed to Post add-on makes it very easy way to export content from your SquareSpace (or other CMS) blog and into your new WordPress blog/site.
All you need to do is enable full RSS feeds for your SquareSpace site, then insert the feed URL in WP RSS Aggregator. And voila, your content instantly moves over to your WordPress site.

Many big corporations own several business but also have a main corporate website.
WP RSS Aggregator offers an easy way to populate the corporate website with news from all the business' that fall under that corporation.
It's the bird's eye view of all the happenings within the corporation.
When managing a team you often ask your team members to keep in touch with a number of websites that would be relevant to your project or sector.
The best way to set this up is to create a new WordPress website, install WP RSS Aggregator, and insert the feed sources you'd like them to follow.
Then you just need to give them the site's URL and have them all use the same system to keep up to date with the latest news.
If you are a prolific video producer or YouTube star, and uploading your videos to sharing sites such as that, it's important for you to make your videos quickly accessible to your website visitors.Using your YouTube feed & WP RSS Aggregator you will be able to set up a dedicated section on your site containing all your latest videos.
Many websites advertise posts on their partner sites right below every article. A great example is Mashable which displays a section beneath each of their articles, showing the thumbnail and title of related posts as well as the source website.
You can very easily build such a display using a page builder plugin in conjunction with WP RSS Aggregator.
You can make a site that purely fetches the latest photos about a particular topic, or from a particular user on Instagram.
Instagram does not provide easy access to a user's RSS Feed, but other services such as Webstagram enable you to easily create a feed for a particular user. You can read more about how to do this on this tutorial.
Just a few ideas worth mentioning include:
- A travel or real estate agent could pull geo tags for specific cities or towns to display on their website.
- You could create a contest using a specific hashtag and display the results in a widget on your blog.
- Or if you are hosting an event, gather and display the pictures people tagged in real-time.
You may be running a multisite blog network and want to auto-post the latest news from your other blogs into each other. A good example of this is what the folks at Mobile Nations are doing.
