Frequently Asked Question #107
Can FusionBot provide an RSS formatted feed of my search index?
Rather than returning your results as default HTML, or XML, you can configure FusionBot to provide an RSS 2.0 formatted feed of your index. In this way, you can provide this feed to feed-readers, news readers, etc.

Users could track changes to information on your site based on their keywords of interest directly within their own readers, by requesting output from your index in RSS format. The possibilities are endless, and the only limit is your imagination in terms of the valid uses for such output.

The RSS 2.0 feed option becomes available starting with the FusionBot Bronze package.

To have your search results returned in RSS 2.0 format, simply append '&rss' to your search results querystring.

For example, a standard search against the FusionBot website for the keyword 'faqs' would
appear as follows:

To have the same set of results returned in RSS 2.0 format, modify the URL to include:

It should be noted that when RSS output is enabled, all results will be returned for the keyword passed on a single page, rather than the default number of matches defined when outputting as HTML or XML. Additionally, to have your entire index returned as RSS, simply remove the keyword variable from the FusionBot querystring all together.

You can place a cap on the maximum number of results returned via the RSS call by assigning a value, equal to the maximum number of results to display, to the '&rss' querstring variable. For example, to return just the first 20 matches for a particular RSS call, the querystring variable would be set to '&rss=20'.
