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.
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 if you want to add even more relevant Genius-based content to your paper, you can go to your Paper Settings and select the Content tab >Add sources, and enter some search terms in the field "Search by interests".
When you enter in a topic or keyword(s) related to your paper's content focus, and press Enter, our system will return relevant content it finds, based on that entry. If you like what you see, and want to add this type of content to your paper as a content source, simply click the +Add to Sources button, found at the top of the content preview display.
The next time your paper publishes, you will be able to see the result of the newly added content source, Or, you can click the Fetch New Content button in your Paper Settings Dashboard > Content to see how the Genius Source is working.
Tips for great content results
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 sources / Search by interests
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.
