Automatic Blog Registration with Feed RSS and Text Tracking Feature in Safe Creative
1.- Log into your account at Safe Creative or create your user.
2.- Go to “My account” if you haven't created a registration profile already, create one
suitable for the posts you want to register.
A registration profile is a way to by default assign registration characteristics to the
works you upload, such as type of work, license that applies, type of registration, tags,
3.- Once you are sure you have the right profile in your you can go to “Registration
feeds” also in “My account”. Here you add a new work feed.
4.- Introduce the information requested for your feed, such as a name to identify it, the
feed URL for the blog, profile that will apply by default to the posts, if the RSS is for
text (this is what you have to select for text blogs) or attached files, such as RSS from
Flickr, Zooomr, (to automatic register images) or some podcasts RSS feeds.
You should state if the posts will be directly registered, will have a 24 hour pre-
registration period or will only be registered when you say so. This two lasts ones help
you to control not to register non original posts you might be publishing with permission
of other authors.
NOTICE: IF YOU POST IMAGES IN YOUR BLOG POSTS: With this configuration images
which accompany the posts are not registered in SafeCreative. Only the text you
write gets registered for it goes together with the html that is sent to our platform.
If you want to register images via feed use attachment enabled RSS such as the ones
Zooomr or Flickr provide.
4.- When creating a new RSS feed in Safe Creative you will be prompted to demonstrate
you own of the blog. You can either use an alphanumerical code, a text html or and
image html Safe Creative provides. The html codes can embeded both for validation
purposes and as a way for visitors to go to the page in Safe Creative with the information
of what is registered and under which license.
5.- If you decide to use the html badge it might look similar to this:
6.- Once the verification code, either the plain text, the html text or the image text has
been published in our blog, we can tell the system at Safe Creative to validate the feed.
7.- Once validated and upon a regular basis, the system will check the feed to see if
there's any new post published and if so will add it to your “My works” view.
8.- If you have selected that the posts will only be registered once you say so, you might
choose all of those you want to be registered to skip the pre-registration and/or end it.
9.- Additionally you can track copies of your registered texts in the Internet thanks to
Safe Creative's partnership with Attributor. All you have to do is go to “My account” to
“Work tracking” and activate the tracking of them. When the system detects copies of
your work (up to two per work right now), there will appear information of where your
contents have been copied. Also you might have the chance to create right there an
incidence to send a cease and desist letter to allegedly infractors if that's the case.
