RSS Feed - Update old PINS

Just visiting

Hi I have a technical question.

I publish pins from rss feed.
I have the site and I can create my feed.
All is ok but I have a doubt....
Is it possibile update a PIN via RSS?
Suppose I create a Feed with 10 pins for a Board A ok?
If after a week I update the feed with others 10 pins.
9 pins are new but the last it is an old product but updated.
What happens to this product in the Board A?
It is updated, or it is created as new?
Which fields in the following XML example allow you to generate an update?
 
    <item>
        <title><![CDATA[Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit]]></title>
        <link>https://domain.ext/product/17763874/FF/womens_totes_shoppers</link>
        <guid isPermaLink="true">https://domain.ext/FE/product/17763874/FF/womens_totes_shoppers</guid>

Thanks @simplepinmedia !


Hey @shoppingscanner , I'm thinking it's best to open a ticket with support. They will be able to have more specifics for you. Keep mind that support stays pretty busy and it may take some patience to follow this through.

As for the frequency of posting, I can't say for sure it will attract the spam filter, this is just my experience. If you are posting 10 at a time and not having issues, I say keep doing that.

Please keep in touch, I would like to hear about your progress!

You weren't kidding about it being a technical question @shoppingscanner!

@PinterestDavid or maybe @michaelbliss? Do you have any ideas here?

@simplepinmedia  Hi Tabby! Thanks for the tag!

@shoppingscanner  The best starting place is to read over this article, RSS feeds are fairly easy to put in place. You really can't 'update', older pins will have to be manually deleted, and any new pins won't overwrite existing ones. You can publish one feed for Board A, another feed for Board B and so on, as long as your website is verified, which you have. Keep in mind it could take about 24 hours to see your content being added.

I would post just a few pins more often, rather than 10 at a time. Doing too much of anything could wake up the spam filter.

Give it a try and come back here if you are seeing errors. I'm confident this will flow easily for you!

Hi, tks for the reply.I understand no way to update old pins.

I ask you a last thing.

Do I really have to post less than 10 items?
To avoid being seen as SPAM?

I would like to understand if there is a limit of pins for day for board?
If I have 11 Boards, do I have to publish 10 pins for each Boards?

Tks David

Me again, sorry if I disturb you.

Every time I try to add a new board to a new feed url, I get always: "RSS feed can not be fetched".

The engine that generate the RSS FEEDS is the same of the previous boards.

I does not understand because the previous FEEDS are corrects and the following no.

Before add each feed I validated with https://validator.w3.org/feed/ and every feed is ok.

But I get always back only a string message "RSS feed can not be fetched" with no technical informations it is really difficult understand where is the problem.

Io have seen inside the console that you call:

https://www.pinterest.co.uk/resource/ActiveUserResource/create/ with http code 200

https://www.pinterest.co.uk/resource/RssFeedResource/create/ with http code 400

https://www.pinterest.co.uk/resource/StatsLogResource/create/ with http code 200

https://www.pinterest.co.uk/resource/ContextLogResource/create/ with http code 200

https://www.pinterest.co.uk/resource/StatsLogResource/create/ with http code 200

What mean that 400?

Can you give me more informations?

Tks, David
