This gave me an interesting idea, I'm testing a recipe with IFTTT right now based on the RSS feed. I'll keep y'all posted
Email me with new DansDeals posts - IFTTT

But it only checks every 15 minutes.

doesn't it increase dans revenue every time the site is visited?
Well he has bandwith costs to consider. My script was pinging him every minute without giving him any revenue. Not the worst if one person is doing it, but if many people were to do it then it could be costly.

believe it or not ive had two times where the tweet came in, id check ddms and it wasn't there yet. dunno how that's possible but maase shehoyu

Yup that's why I decided the other options weren't good enough.

for some reason some of the post that are filed into categories lets say amazon

will not be on main site for a minute or so
but if you clicked the direct link or if you clicked amazon you would see it!!!

Trust me, I tried that before I made my scripts. IFTTT and DDMS feedburner doesn't update fast enough. Twitter is way faster that the IFTTT combo

But it only checks every 15 minutes.
Hmmmm, I guess I'm not as smart as I thought I was....

15 minutes is not fast enough for a price mistake or airline glitch..

Especially if those could've already been active on DDF for 10-30 minutes (and even longer on other blogs/forums) before getting posted to the main site.

Solution: check DDF every 60 seconds. Then rely on the emails for deals that are good enough for you to buy, but not good enough to make it to DDF (necessarily), or to go OOS/die within 15 minutes.

Potential pitfalls: work, life, etc.

This method has proved successful for me

Not quite.
There's an AWS caching system. It takes a minute for the public site to see changes I make.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

That makes more sense
Or else it shouldn't be visible in the amazon category

I've had the other way around many times, where I saw it on the site before getting the tweet.
