Configuring Triberr and Importing Blog Posts #triberr

TriberrTriberr is one of the most powerful tools for sharing blog on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. If your Triberr tribe members aren't sharing your content, don't leave just yet. Check if you have configured your Triberr to import your blog posts and assigned the posts to a tribe.

RSS Feeds

You will need your blog's RSS Feed URL. 

RSS = Rich Site Summary (sometimes called Really Simple Syndication)

RSS Feeds are similar to the breaking news headlines ticker tape that runs along  the bottom on CNN and other news channels.Through RSS feeds, subscribers import or access syndicated content that, unlike static web pages, is updated frequently. For example, the URL for Cvent Blog's RSS Feed is:

http://blog.cvent.com/blog/cvent/rss

Go ahead and click on it.

You'll see code required by RSS readers, the blog's text  and html.

Finding your RSS Feed URL

To import blog content into Triberr or Twitterfeed, copy the URL for your blog's RSS Feed. There are 3 ways to do this:

  1. From a Blog Post or Page, hit "CTRL F." Search for RSS. (This only works on some blogs. For example, it doesn't work on Cvent Blog.)
  2. RSSLook for the RSS symbol (sample to the right). Click on it. Copy the URL from the address bar.
  3. View the source code for your blog. Hit "CTRL F." Search for RSS. Copy the full URL.

To view source code in Google Chrome, right mouse click from anywhere on a post or page except an image and select "view page source". In Internet Explorer, select "Source" from the View menu.
