Feed The Robot going strong, seeks more websites to feast on

For immediate release

Coventry, UK - September 5th, 2012 - Content hub service Feed The Robot is today putting out a second call to interested independent websites and blogs, hoping to integrate and showcase a fresh batch of quality writers and writing.

After a few months ‘in office’ FTR has gained a reputation for helping promote some of the best, most original and creative gaming-related articles on the internet. Sites and writers from the likes of PocketTactics, The Game Jar and many more have been pouring out their thoughts and feelings about an ever-expanding range of games and topics.

Now you (yes, you) are invited to submit your own site’s content to the hub in order to expose it to the eyes of the wider world. ‘He who dares, wins’ and all that. You could join the likes of Citizen Game, Scripted Sequence and Split Screen as the latest members of the growing collective.

Applications are always being taken and plans abound to continue improving the service on an almost minute-by-minute basis.


For those who aren’t aware of what Feed the Robot is, let’s refer back to last week’s launch press release:

Its mission is a simple one: to provide the consumer with a single place to digest all the finest articles from the best independent gaming websites across the globe, and to help those very same sites reach a bigger audience than ever before.

“We’re hoping to bring together the communities of a large number of sites together in one place and to help boost the traffic levels of indie gaming sites by getting fresh eyes on their content that might not otherwise notice it,” said co-founder David Brown.

“You might be asking what we’re doing differently to established aggregators like N4G and we’d answer by saying that what we’re looking to do is make the submission of articles automated, so there’ll be no need for the tortuous vote or approval begging that is required on said bigger sites.”

“Like with any semi-sentient pet website, we’re making sure we work with the very best material. We’re aiming to feed only substantial and unique features and articles into the system, producing a constant output of content fromt the best indie sites out there“, co-founder and technical director Craig Lager explained.

“Through our automated feed system, we’re giving the sites a really easy way to push their content to us, making integration a doddle after our certification. I should clarify, too, that we only show an excerpt of each article - every site keeps their own content and comments sections and everything like that.”

A minimum character limit will be the only real ‘rule’ that needs to be adhered to, making sure the feed doesn’t get swamped with repetitive news stories. The aim is to make sure the best examples of a site’s work draws all the attention, all the time.

Applications are welcome from anyone else who wants to get involved at this early stage, and as long as your site is about games and abides by our basic rules and guidelines, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be welcomed into the fold. No gaming topic would be considered too ‘niche’ if you were considering submitting an application for a single topic site, in case you were worrying your blog about bus simulation was too esoteric for inclusion.

Interested parties can get more information or apply to get involved with Feed The Robot by getting in touch with us using this handy e-mail address, applications@feedtherobot.net. If you for some reason want to chat to either David or Craig personally, just replace the word ‘applications’ with their first names. Couldn’t be simpler.
