How to import all of your GoSwap.org listings into Facebook and other sites with RSS
Have many listings? Post on GoSwap.org then Import all of them in your blog or any webpage using our built-in RSS feeds and widgets found on any user profile page. The best part is updating your listings on GoSwap will also update them on all syndicated sites automatically.
Importing listings via RSS feed into other websites is similar to the steps above. The website must be set up to accept RSS feeds.
- Navigate to your listing > click on "View Trader Profile..." then copy the RSS link that looks like: http://goswap.org/rss-xxxxx.xml.
- Sign in to Facebook.com home page. Follow the "My Notes" link from the navigational menu. If you have already entered notes on your page, then they will load for you to preview or edit.
Select the "Import Blog" or "Edit Import Settings" link in the Notes Setting section. If you are already importing from a blog, the URL will appear here. You can only import from 1 source at a time. Simply "Stop Importing" if you want to change to an RSS feed.
Paste the URL for the RSS feed in the box (from step 1). Check the box next to the statement that you actually own the content.
Click the "Start Importing" button. Facebook will import all of your GoSwap.org listings. If everything looks good, then go ahead and hit the "Continue" button. Now your RSS feed is automatically imported into your "Notes" section. Set your privacy levels to determine who is allowed to view your notes, which now contain your RSS feed.
In case if a site does not accept RSS feed imports one can still import listings using our flash widgets. To view the widget showing your own GoSwap.org listings navigate to your profile by clicking on "...view my profile" link inside any listing, then copy the flash widget HTML code and paste it any website or blog. Some popular classified sites like Craigslist do not accept flash, in which case use non-flash HTML listing widget found under seller tools tab inside each listing.
