Another way is to use "Generate and Send to" option in any of RSS feeds Generators. Choose "RSS to LinkedIn Poster" from a drop-down menu and your generated feeds will be automatically sent to the Poster's interface.
Now you need to authenticate your LinkedIn account. Press "Authenticate" and enter your LinkedIn login information to allow our poster to make posts to your LinkedIn account.
Together with your main LinkedIn account news feed you can also update news feeds of companies' pages. As soon as you authenticate your LinkedIn account you will see the list of your companies pages.
Press "Next" to go to the second step.
Now you can make some settings for your posting project.
Include keywords - this option will choose to post only RSS items which have at least one of the specified keywords in their title or description. You may use several keywords separated with commas.
Exclude keywords - this option will sort RSS items which include at least one of the specified keywords in their title or description and exclude them from posting. You may use several keywords separated with commas.
Post items - this option will set the order in which RSS feeds' items will be processed.
Before each run the system checks your RSS feeds for updates. And if you wish to post only fresh items you choose "Only new" option. In this case posts will be made using only fresh content. If no new items were added to RSS feeds the program will not make any posts and wait until the fresh content is added to RSS feeds. If you wish to use not only fresh content from your RSS feeds you need to choose "From newest to oldest" option. In this case the program will check for updates in RSS feeds and use them as the priority content for posting. If no fresh content was added the system will use the latest but not yet published content. If there is no matter for you whether to post new or older content you may choose "Randomly" option and a random set of items will be posted every time. If you wish to post gradually post RSS items starting from the oldest one you need to choose "From oldest to newest" option.
Note: no matter what option was used in "Post items" duplicate items will never be used for posting.
Number of items to post – you may post the exact number of RSS items (set for example 2-2 to post 2 items every time) or post a random number of items (set 1-3 to post randomly from 1 to 3 items every time).
Share with - choose if you want to make your posts visible publicly or only to your 1st level connections. This option will only work with updates of your main LinkedIn account news feed.
