Jawfish newsfeed conversion service adds Atom support

The Jawfish service, which converts RSS newsfeeds to JavaScripts, enabling them to be displayed on any website, now supports newsfeeds in Atom format.


OREM, Utah--27 September 2004--Gecko Tribe LLC is pleased to announce the addition of support for the Atom newsfeed format to our Jawfish newsfeed display service. The service converts RSS, and now Atom, newsfeeds to JavaScripts, HTML frames, or iFrames, enabling any website to display them. Lacking such a service, websites require a script to convert newsfeeds to HTML--a function which is not possible on sites that do not support scripting languages such as ASP, PHP, and Perl.

Newsfeeds are an increasingly popular means for displaying up-to-date content on websites. They are often used to import news, commentary, and other information from other websites. They are also useful as a standard method for displaying information from one part of one's own website in other places on the site.

Recently, search engine optimization specialists have begun using newsfeeds to boost search engine rankings by ensuring that a webpage always contains frech content, pertinent to the subject of the page. Because search engines do not index the output of JavaScripts, this technique requires a script running on the site rather a service like Jawfish. For webmaster seeking to use newsfeeds for search engine optimization, we offer the tools that power Jawfish: CaRP and Grouper, both of which require PHP support.

Pricing and Availability:

A one year subscription to Jawfish costs $29.99, enabling the subscriber to display up to 10 newsfeeds on their website. Additional newsfeeds may be added for $25.99 per 10 newsfeeds.
