RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It refers to XML (Extensible Markup language) files. The XML file is used to generate common information and share both the format and the data over the internet. The search engine only understands XML language to show website content in a search result.

if you are using Yoast SEO, you can easily generate an XML sitemap.

How to Create a Mailchimp RSS to Email Newsletter for WordPress Website-:

If you have a blog, you may want to use an RSS campaign to email new posts to your subscribed contacts. RSS campaigns use merge tags to pull in RSS (Real Simple Syndication) content from a blog feed.

When an RSS feed is updated with new blog posts, Mailchimp will pull that content into the campaign and send it to your subscribers on the schedule you choose. In this article, you’ll learn how to create an RSS campaign with the Campaign Builder.

  • You’ll need the URL for your RSS feed. If you want to include content from multiple feeds, you can use our FEED merge tag to add multiple RSS feeds to one campaign. Or use a feed aggregator like RSSUnify or RSS Mix to combine multiple RSS feeds into a single feed.
  • You can’t control the RSS content via the Campaign Builder. If you want your content formatted a certain way, edit the RSS source directly.
  • To be sure that blog posts are pulled into an RSS campaign, publish them at least 3 hours before an RSS campaign send.
When you first set up an RSS campaign, Mailchimp shows the last post that was added to your feed as an example as you build your campaign. Mailchimp does not send campaigns to your audience unless there’s something new to send. For example, if you set your campaign to send weekly but haven’t posted in more than a week, Mailchimp won’t send to your audience until there is a new post on the day your campaign is set to send.
If this is the first time you send your RSS campaign, we’ll only send posts from the last 24 hours for daily, from the last seven days for weekly, and the last 30 days for monthly. After that, each new send will pull all posts made to your feed since the last send.

View RSS campaign reports-:

RSS campaigns function differently than other types of Mailchimp campaigns. When you create an RSS campaign, we generate the parent copy of the campaign that is referenced for each individual send. When the RSS campaign sends at its scheduled time, each sent copy is referred to as a child of the parent campaign.

We generate a campaign report for each child RSS campaign. To see an overview of the child campaign reports for a parent RSS campaign, follow these steps.
