One of the most requested features is the ability to only have deals from a particular city via RSS, Email or whatnot. We have always offered city-based targeting for our Facebook fans with the exception of those in California, who get both Los Angeles and San Francisco deals in their news feed.
City-Based RSS Feeds
To get it in your RSS reader, go to menu, select Flight Deals then a city on the drop down. Only cities listed on the drop down will have a RSS feed.
Select your city (ex. Los Angeles) and you will see this URL on your browser: http://www.theflightdeal.com/category/flight-deals/lax/
To get the RSS feed, add “feed” to the end of the URL like this: http://www.theflightdeal.com/category/flight-deals/lax/feed/
Then it’s just a matter of putting this URL in your RSS reader. Please note that we do not use RSS ourselves. We assume this is how it works because when we tested it on Firefox’s Livemarks and Feedly, it worked properly. Unlike our main RSS feed at feeds.feedburner.com/theflightdeal, city-based feeds are done via WordPress. There are no guarantees but please give it a whirl and let us know how it goes.
How do we say this gently? Having put considerable thought into this, we have concluded that we are unlikely going to implement this. Unless we start posting hundreds of deals a day, this search won’t be that useful. If you go past page one from any of our coverage cities or page two from the homepage, the deal is probably no longer valid and therefore not very functional.
We are looking into rolling off Feedburner. This is our next big project from a user experience perspective. We have a significant e-mail subscription base so we will make sure it is a smooth transition. Expect it in January 2014!
As always, thank you for your continued support,
