Step 2. Paste an article / domain URL or an RSS feed into the box below the Add New Source section and click on Add Source. Note: if you are adding an RSS feed, we will only grab what is displayed in your RSS feed. This means if your RSS feed is in summary mode, we will not be able to grab full articles; also if you limit your RSS feed to the latest 10 articles we will not be able to grab anything published prior. Please make sure your RSS feed is set up appropriately.

Step 3. Our platform will now scrape your website or RSS feed for similar articles and add it to your account's corpus. This can take anywhere between 5 minutes to a few hours depending on the amount of content but you should start seeing content populating in your account within 10 minutes of connecting.

Standard Method

Step 1. Go to Content Sources via the Profile drop-down menu.
