Keyword Based Category Population
When adding a category to PHP RSS Reader, you can assign ‘keywords’. These keywords are used to find relevant news from the news source you’ve specified for the script to crawl. This allows you to target specific keywords. Whether these are keywords you’ve identified as being profitable, or perhaps you want to increase your site’s keyword density for a specific keyword, or perhaps you just want to populate a category with relevant news to provide users with more, fresh content, to keep them coming back to the site.
