Content syndication is the process of sharing content from one source to many different sources. Syndicating your content means you’re making more use of your existing content. Before the launch of this article, I’ll be honest with you — I wasn’t sure if WordPress had plugins for content syndication.
Thus, is because for years now, syndicating content has been a great opportunity for website owners to be discovered and attract links. The options available today are WordPress plugins, which allow you to efficiently build an in-house content distribution platform based on RSS feeds and XML, further automating your content syndication process by publishing the same content via several other websites.
In this article, we have compiled a list of the five Free and Premium Content Syndication Plugins for WordPress 2022.
Free and Premium Content Syndication Plugins for WordPress
1. WP RSS Aggregator
If you are looking for a free and premium content syndication plugin for WordPress, WP RSS Aggregator is the best solution. It is a simple yet powerful plugin that will help you easily import, merge and display RSS and Atom feeds on your WordPress site. The plugin supports a simplePie library (for parsing) to parse feeds.
The plugin has a built-in feed caching feature that allows feeds to be cached so that the load speed of your website is not affected. Other features include shortcode support, custom post type support, email notifications, and import schedules. The plugin has been tested with the latest version of WordPress and it works perfectly fine.
2. Google My Business Auto Publish
Google My Business Auto Publish is a WordPress plugin that allows you to publish content to your Google My Business account automatically. You can publish your posts, pages, or custom post types such as WooCommerce products, etc. to your Google My Business account. To publish a post, page, or custom post type, simply change the status of the post to Published and the plugin will take care of the rest!
The plugin has been developed by Xylusthemes in collaboration with FeedXYZ. FeedXYZ is a platform that allows you to create RSS feeds to Google My Business and other services such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and many more.
The Google My Business Auto Publish plugin comes with the following features:
- Publish Posts to Google My Business.
- Publish Pages to Google My Business.
- Publish Custom Post Types to Google My Business (Eg: WooCommerce Products).
The plugin supports both text/HTML and plain text fields from any custom post type for publishing content in the GMB listing.
3. News SEO
The News SEO plugin helps you to integrate your WordPress site with Google News. It does this by creating a special XML News Sitemap which will help ensure Google sends more traffic to your site.
The News SEO plugin goes beyond that though and allows you to optimize some of the more advanced XML News sitemap options like stock tickers, publication dates, and even multi-language articles.
To make things easy, the plugin adds a box to each post edit screen where you can configure the settings for that post. Then the plugin automatically creates an XML News sitemap and pings Google each time you create a new post.
The free version only includes support for one site, but there is a premium version available too if you want to use it on multiple sites or want access to email support.
