Add content with the Genius Source

 

Try the Paper.li Genius Source!

 

Every day, Paper.li pulls in millions of articles from social media sources and from RSS feeds.  

With the Genius source, we've given you the power to leverage the millions of articles we collect each day and unearth the most relevant and trending content out there.   

Go to your Paper Settings Dashboard and select the Content tab > Add content sources and enter some search terms in the field "Search for a topic".

 

   Add a Genius Source 

If you’ve just created your paper, we’ve already added a Genius Source to your content source list,  based on the keywords (or URL of an article) you entered.  But you can add another Genius Source by entering some keywords in the search field "Search for a topic" and clicking enter.

If we find content, you'll have the option to add the Genius source to your list of content sources.


The next time your paper publishes, you will be able to see the result.  Or, you can click the Fetch New Content   button in your Paper Settings Dashboard (Content tab) to see how the Genius Source is working.

The Genius Source is a powerful tool for unearthing content in our database of articles based on the keywords you enter.  The quality of results will depend on the keywords you enter and the topic you're searching for.     

Our database of articles is created from the millions of articles that people are sharing on social media.  

If your topic of interest is very niche, the genius source might have trouble pulling in enough relevant content.

If you're not getting good results and can't find the relevant keywords to use for your search, here's a tip:  

Find an example article of the kind of articles you'd like to see in your paper.  Then enter that article URL in the search field under Add content sources.

When you add a URL into the topic field, you are not adding that article per se, but are adding the keywords from the article to help the genius source know what kind of content you're looking for.
