The FeedWind crawler bot

The FeedWind crawler is an RSS feed crawler bot for FeedWind, a widget which displays RSS feeds, provided by Mikle Inc.

To display recent content from a feed in our RSS widget, we regularly crawl the RSS feed entered in the setup page of FeedWind. Technically, we crawl once every 5 minutes to 5 hours depending on a user’s plan so feeds will refresh at that frequency. However, RSS feeds are updated by the RSS feed source page owners, so obviously we can only update as fast as the originating feed updates.

Widget refresh (update frequency)

Using a script to force automatic refresh

Function RefreshIframes(){

$(“iframe”).each(function() {

var src= $(this).attr(‘src’);

$(this).attr(‘src’, src);



setInterval(function() {


}, 30000);

Using HTML to force automatic refresh

<meta http-equiv=”refresh” content=”1800″>

Which will refresh the whole page every 1800 seconds
