Submit your Content to Player Newsfeeds
Player newsfeeds appear on every Pro-Football-Reference.com player
page. Below is a sample from our baseball site.
How to add your content
If you run a blog with news and analysis, you can have your latest stories automatically integrated into Pro-Football-Reference.com Player Newsfeeds. There are two ways to alert us to relevant content.
- First, use our Player Linker to seed your content with links to relevant Pro-Football-Reference.com player pages.
- Second, use our Statistics Sharing Tool to embed any table of stats (customized by you) into your blog post.
Then let us know (see below) that you are using these tools and we
will start scanning your RSS feed for links to Pro-Football-Reference.com.
We'll then link from the relevant player page (using our ID in the
link) to your blog post.
- We can reject a website or feed for any reason.
- No profanity or vulgarity in the title. The title of the post appears on Pro-Football-Reference.com. We will attempt to censor potentially offensive content from appearing on Sports Reference pages.
- To prevent Sports Reference from using a post, don't have any links to our sites or include the following in the post. <!-- NOINDEX -->
- Your RSS feed must include the text of the articles in order for us to pull out the player id's you link to
- In general, we will check your rss feed every hour and use the first 10 posts we find and the first 15 player id's in each post.
- Anyone found to be using this service in a spammy way will be immediately blocked.
- Only links in posts trigger this feature. Links in comments will not.
Let Us Know You Want to be Included
To be included in this service you need to send us the following information.
- the name of your site to appear in the feed (at most 25 characters)
- the url for your rss feed (must be a full feed)
- a contact e-mail address
- the url of an example page with our links in place
We'll review your request in no more than two business days and
either begin including your content or let you know why we can't.
Please let us know if you have any questions,
or need our linker to support additional content management systems.
