Publishing your TypePad blog in "Real Time"
Three years ago, we introduced the Six Apart update stream, the fastest way to deliver your blog posts directly to search engines and improve your traffic. Today, we are releasing our new TypePad PubSubHubbub hub which automatically pushes your blog updates in "real time".
- Get instant updates in Google Reader, FriendFeed, SuperFeedr and LiveDoor
- It's automatic. No plugins or changes are required for TypePad bloggers
- It's free for all TypePad bloggers
Give it a try today. We think you -- and your readers -- will be impressed with instant updates.
NOTE: If you are using Advance Templates in TypePad, please add the following line to your atom.xml:
<link rel="hub" href="http://hubbub.api.typepad.com/" />
Developers: Learn more about PubSubHubbub
The new TypePad PubSubHubbub hub builds on the exciting work that Brad Fitzpatrick (a Six Apart alum) and Brett Slatkin’s team at Google have done with the implementation of PubSubHubbub.
PubSubHubbub is a "simple, open, server-to-server web-hook-based pubsub (publish/subscribe) protocol as an extension to Atom and RSS". The PubSubHubbub protocol is decentralized and free. No single company controls it and anybody can run a hub, ping (publish) or subscribe using open hubs. If you are interested in learning more about PubSubHubbub we strongly recommend that you check out their Google Code page, read through the specifications posted on the wiki, join the discussion group and contribute your hub code to the community.
We are looking forward to supporting and growing our TypePad Developer community, so check back soon for more articles, code and documentation resources.
