  6. 6. Include the author of each post within the <author><author> tags. Do not include HTML in the <author> tags and omit any bylines within the <description> or <summary>tags. Example: <author>John Smith </author> Include Bylines Tuesday, March 18, 14
  7. 7. Include full-text content or a minimum of 1500 characters in your feed in order to provide the best user experience on LinkedIn Pulse. Include links back to your site at the end of each story. We also encourage you to include links to related stories that refer a user back to your website. Include Full Text Tuesday, March 18, 14
  8. 8. Please include full-size images (at least 300x300) in your feed. Pulse will adjust the size to fit properly across phones, tablets, and web. Example 1: Include full size images in the description tag <description><img src="full_url_to_image" /></ description> Example 2: include full size images in the feed tag <media:thumbnail url='full_url_to_image' /> Include Full-Size Images Tuesday, March 18, 14
  9. 9. Include the name of your content in the RSS feed so it shows up properly when users add it to Pulse. As a safe guideline, keep titles to 20-character maximum to ensure optimal display. Example: <channel><title>Example Feed Title</title>...</channel> Include a Feed Title Tuesday, March 18, 14
  10. 10. Embed videos directly into the RSS feed. We can work with MRSS or HTML-5. Example 1: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http:// www.youtube.com/embed/ OE4AH4DZtEI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Example 2: Include HTML5- compatible video urls in the feed tag <media:content url='url' medium='video'/> Include Video Tuesday, March 18, 14
  11. 11. • Wrap paragraphs in <p> tags. Do not use <br> tags to separate paragraphs. • Do not include style attributes in html elements. Create ids or classes and include style blocks. • Include the published date and time of each post in <pubDate> tags. Example: <pubDate>Mon, 1 Jan 2014 19:01:08 +0000</ pubDate> • Include at least 25 stories in your feed. Pulse users will have an unfavorable UX with your content with less as 25 is our standard. • The more feeds the better. Feeds from a wide breadth of content (e.g. News, Technology, Business, etc.) offer more touch points for members. Additional Tips Tuesday, March 18, 14
