    Looking for News Feeds/Article APIs

    I'm looking for high volumes of content that can be problematically pulled into my site. So far I've looked at http://marketbrief.com/content, http://www.textbroker.com/us/client-api.php, and http://api.ezinearticles.com/

    Besides paying $2600/month for an AP news feed (500 articles/day), what other services can I look at for ingesting high volumes of content (completely automated)?

    Thanks!
    Jason

    what exactly are you trying to accomplish? Keeping your website or blog updated with fresh content?

    Setting up a forum that does not require registration and letting the spammers run riot works. The quality of posts is low but they do generate a lot of page views.

    But on a more serious level, what you need to do is investigate is a technique known as 'Scraping'. So even if a site has no api you can still extract its content, of course this practice of content thieving is universally frowned upon and you may find getting help difficult.

    Correct... and we don't recommend black hat practices of any kind at SitePoint, especially those that involve plagiarism.
