NewsNow West Ham Feed Added

As many of you know NewsNow is probably the best source of West Ham news. However NewsNow refuse to provide free RSS feeds for their site, which has always annoyed me as it seems to go against the spirit of the Internet.

However, thanks to an old hacking trick called data scraping, I have found a way of creating my own feeds from their West Ham page. Data scraping basically involves just scraping the data from the actual web page.

I have added two feeds from NewsNow to this page, NewsNow Upcoming West Ham News and NewsNow Top West Ham News. Both the feeds can be read from the white box in the right hand column of this page.

If you want to add the feeds to your own feed reader or to your own websites the RSS addresses are:

NewsNow Upcoming West Ham News
http://www.dappit.com/services/NewsNowRSS

&
NewsNow Top West Ham News
http://www.dappit.com/services/TopStories (top stories)

Just don't tell NewsNow!
