Add Dynamic RSS Feeds with SBPM

Have you ever wanted to add some great dynamic links to top news stories, recent blog posts from relevant sites or twitter RSS data to your posts?

With SPBM, this become very easy!

You will need to have a plugin such as the brilliant Exec-PHP installed to get this working, but you can enter the code into your SBPM content and list RSS data for your keywords:

Latest %%keyword%% Blog Posts
<?php
include_once(ABSPATH.WPINC.'/rss.php');
$feed = "http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?q=%%keyword%%&hl=en&output=rss";
echo wp_rss($feed, 5);
?>

This produces a list of the 5 latest blog posts from the blogsearch.google.com page for your keyword.

All you need to do is find the RSS feed you want to show, copy and paste it in place of the “http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?q=%%keyword%%&hl=en&output=rss” I have shown above. Then, change any search keywords to %%keyword%% and you are good to go!

You could also produce a list of the latest news stories from news.google.com too if you wanted:

%%keyword%% News
<?php
include_once(ABSPATH.WPINC.'/rss.php');
$feed = "http://news.google.com/news?pz=1&cf=all&ned=us&hl=en&q=%%keyword%%&cf=all&output=rss";
echo wp_rss($feed, 5);
?>

RSS feeds are everywhere, so take advantage of them and put them to use in your SBPM content!

Using SBPM with phpBay

I love using the eBayPartnerNetwork eBay affiliate scheme to make money with WordPress. There is no better way to help do this, than with the excellent phpBay plugin by Wade.

SBPM works brilliantly with this plugin and allows you to create quick, targetted, money making websites with ease.

Just take a selection of categories and keywords:

Bikes/Trek Mountain Bike
Bikes/Raleigh Mountain Bike
Bikes/Cheap Mountain Bike
Bikes/Adult Mountain Bike
Bikes/Kids Mountain Bike
Color/Red Mountain Bike
Color/Silver Mountain Bike
Color/Black Mountain Bike
Color/Blue Mountain Bike

And add your “spintax” text:

{There|Presently there|Right now there|Here|Currently there} {are many|are lots of|are extensive|is a lot of|lots of} {bargain|discount|cut price|great} {prices|price tags|values|discounts|offers} {to be had|available|to be enjoyed} {when|if|when you are} {buying|purchasing|getting|shopping for|investing in} %%keyword%% {and we|so we|therefore we} {have|now have|already have|have now} {partnered|joined|combined} {with|along with|together with} {ebay|ebay.com|eBay} {to deliver|to provide|to generate} {to you|for you} {the best|the very best|the top|the finest} {deals|offers|bargains|discounts|specials|promotions|savings|prices|buys}.

Then, just add your phpBay code at the bottom as follows:

[phpbay]%%keyword%%,10[/phpbay]

You then have a great template and framework to create your money making WordPress and phpBay website!

Automatically Adding YouTube Videos With SBPM

I recently created a website where I wanted to use SBPM to create the content, followed by some phpBay auctions but also add relevant videos from YouTube. Using video to generate customer interest and make the page more “sticky” is a well known way of keeping people on your website, increasing sales and adding great, relevant content to your websites.

I found the perfect WordPress Plugin for this, called Tubepress. Using one of the TubePress tags, and changing the settings accordingly, I was able to add this to my SBPM code:

[tubepress mode=”tag” tagValue=”%%keyword%%”]

I set TubePress to only show 1 main video for the tag and when the post was created, it changed the %%keyword%% variable to the post name, pulling a video from YouTube for the product I was advertising.

Of course, you could use CSS or HTML to make this video aligned to the left or right and flow with the text, but adding it in the middle of the spun content was the perfect position and certainly helps visitors to each of my pages know what they are buying.

This is just one of the ways SBPM can bring amazing dynamic content to your WordPress site.
