AddSearch provides RSS feed feature and search API for adding your content immediately to the search index.

The RSS feed feature allows you to define RSS feed containing new content on your site. Once defined, we poll the feed frequently, and as soon as new content appears in the feed, we add it to the search.

RSS feeds feature is useful on websites with rapid content changes. For instance, the frequent changes in content on news sites and large online stores need immediate adding to the search so that the user can find the content using the search.

The support for the RSS feeds is available to Professional, Premium and Enterprise plans.
