AideRSS is going live!

AideRSS Inc is going to launch its innovative RSS filtering solution today and make it publicly available for the first time. There is no cost for the AideRSS service and a free version will always be available.

“Our goal is to make RSS manageable and relevant for every reader” states Ilya Grigorik, AideRSS co-founder and Chief Architect, “the daily number of posts most people receive makes it impossible to stay on top of the news, frequently resulting in the “mark-all-asread” syndrome. In this process, important stories - true information gems are lost. We were determined to solve this dilemma.”

“With the number of blogs growing by millions each month and an ever increasing number of posts each day we figure AideRSS can save hours of reading each month. Think of it as a personal aide, an assistant to filter and manage your RSS Streams!” says Kevin Thomason, co-founder and Chief Marketer at AideRSS.

What is AideRSS ?

AideRSS is an intelligent assistant that saves time and keeps you on top of the latest news. It continuously monitors RSS feeds, finds the good stuff, creates a PostRank, and delivers it to you.

There are over 86 million blogs, and each one has an RSS feed. All it takes is a few subscriptions to the sites that interest you, and your feed reader is overwhelmed with a never-ending stream of hundreds of headlines. Like an aide or a personal assistant, AideRSS helps to filter and rank these feeds based on a number of criteria to help you read what matters, ensure that you find the good stuff, and to help keep things organized and manageable.

Depending on your level of interest in a specific blog or a topic, AideRSS allows you to intelligently pick and filter the incoming news stream. For example, from the diagram above we can see that Dave is professional photographer, hence he likes to read all stories from the ‘Photographer Daily‘. John, on the other hand, who is currently working in the finance industry, is a photo enthusiast and loves to spend his weekends with the camera - he doesn’t want the minute details, but he wants to know what the other photographers are talking about.

In similar fashion, Bob, who is an artist by trade, likes to dabble in photography every once in a while, hence he chooses to read only the great posts. And Dan, who is an engineer, thinks that photography would be a fun hobby, and one he would like to pick up in the future - he just wants to be aware of the community hits.

We all have varying levels of interest in different topics, and AideRSS will allow you to customize your news to match your criteria. Instead of filling up your inbox with hundreds of stories, you will be able to focus your time and energy on the stories that matter. You can still use your favorite RSS reader, simply substitute our custom feed URL and you are ready to go. Alternatively, you can also track the feed on our site, find the authors best content, or flip through the archives.
