Teh, Phoey Lee (2011) Coalescence of XML-based really simple syndication aggregator for blogosphere. PhD thesis, Universiti Putra Malaysia.


Really Simple Syndication (RSS) aggregator has been widely applied onto several applications starting from year 2000, such as news headline, poscasting, education, medical, geospatial and weblogs. The purpose of RSS is to enable users aggregating new content updates on the favorite site which has subscribed in the RSS feeder instead of visiting the sites individually. Blogging over the internet has become a hobby amongst the internet veteran, whether they are politicians, retired teachers, students, lawyers, journalist etc. The usage of RSS aggregator as a tool onto the blogging environment has become the latest form of internet phenomenon. Weblogs written in chronological order will discuss several different topics, while RSS serves as a tool to aggregate new content updates on the site subscribed. However, each of the independent readers have their different interests in several aspects, such as cooking,computing, football, scholarly literature, political issues and etc. Relevant topics that had been raised by multiple writers from different sites aggregated onto current automated RSS aggregator do not completely satisfy the readers to find relevant topics from multiple websites. In this thesis, two major studies were carried out. The first study involved studying the different formats used in aggregator with aggregated result in terms of the coalescence of their metadata. Second study will cover the issues of ambiguity of the weblogs on the relevant topics aggregated by the user based on user interest. PheRSS help in resolving these problems hybriding the technique on the topics. Finally, experiment is done to prove the relevancy of outcome. Result is analyzed and compared and assessment of the RSS aggregated result based on user interest is done.
