Sources, URLs, Feeds
A source generates information that you may want to monitor. There are a lot of different types of source on the internet: a complex website, a single web page, a forum, a Twitter account, etc. Another type of source are databases of information such as the DCF (Digimind Content Factory).
A URL is the technical address for a source. www.digimind.com is an example.
A feed is a specific kind of source that generates a continual flow of information. RSS feeds are, for example, sources that produce regular updates on a particular subject.
Add Feed Wizard
The "Add feed wizard" lets you add feeds to an agent in a quick and easy manner.
Using Digimind technology, a simple URL can be transformed into a feed. This means that Digimind will produce a continuous flow of information in the form of alerts using a web address or URL.
In addition, if you enter a keyword into the add feed wizard the Digimind will use your keyword to interrogate several search engines at the same time and will create a feed based on the keyword and the search engines you have chosen.
