PubSubHubBub and RSSCloud : Adding Them To Your WordPress Blog

So if you follow the tech blogs around the interweb you will surely have noticed the talk of the real-time web and the part that services like PubSubHubBub and RSSCloud could play in all of this.  I really has become one of the hot stories us geeks are talking about.

TechCruch has a story they put out recently “RSSCloud Vs. PubSubHubbub: Why The Fat Pings Win” where they looked at the pluses and minuses of each technology.

PubSubHubBub description on wikipedia – “PubSubHubbub is an open protocol for distributed Publish/subscribe communication on the internet. The protocol extends the Atom and RSS protocols for data feeds. The main purpose is to provide near-instant notifications of change updates, which would improve on the typical situation where a client periodically polls the feed server at some arbitrary interval.

ReadWriteWeb had a snipit about RSSCloud – “RSSCloud is an element that’s always been present in the RSS 2.0 spec but has drawn new attention with the rise of interest in the Real-Time Web.

Now as bloggers we always want to get our information and blog posts out as quick as possible and for those of us who use WordPress there are a couple plugins that we can use to take advantage of both of these types of technologies at least till maybe we get a winner in the discussion of which is better for the masses.

The two simple plugins (which i have both installed on (jeff)isageek.net) are:

RSS Cloud

PubSubHubBub

On a side note can I just say I love saying PubSubHubBub 🙂

  3. Do these two plugins work if your using feedburner (google) for your rss feed?

    If you use feedburner + pingshot, you are already PubSubhubbub enabled. rssCloud works through feedburner, however (tested on my blog).
