March 16: Ability to Automatically Load Full-Text Content from Webpages

While we're busy working on a new lead generation feature, we’ve recently released some improvements on the existing features. 

With the Content Generator on Fan Page Robot, now you can enter the URL of an article and it will extract the main article from the webpage. If you enter the URL of a category page or homepage of a website, the Robot will find the latest articles on the page, go to each of them, and extract the full-content from the articles. The full content the Robot loads for you is ad-free and well-formatted.

It works for all languages.

Use Cases

1. Autopost Content From A Category

When you want to share multiple articles from a category, or want Fan Page Robot to notify you or autopost the articles from the category once it has new updates, you can enter the URL of the category page, e.g. http://www.reuters.com/news/world. The Robot will try to load the summary feed (default feed) that is provided by the website first. Then you can choose to load the full-content feed which is generated by the Robot.
