An expert told me, that I can use ifttt.com (If This Then That) to auto publish on Wordpress and It works. Now I need to know what kind of recipe I need to use. I started with a Feed recipe but the website where I want to take the information has no Feed service.

From a single website, What kind of recipes I can use?


Thank you,
Antonio

If the web site you want to use as a source has no form of feed, IFTTT won't work. It needs something it can hook into programmatically to discover new content.  

Does the other site have a Twitter account associated with it?  If so, do new notifications show up there?

No, Its a single website, it has no Twitter or Feed. The plugin Blogroll Social use to be the solution, in the way that you comment I need to discover new content, what can I do?

If the source site doesn't publish a way to easily discover new content you either have to spider them or manually review it.  Neither option is appealing.

Ok, which is the best way to spider a website in order to auto publish this content in a WP Blog? I'm using Postie plugin from Wordpress. It's an email Post publisher.

There's a million pre-built spiders out there...Google is your friend in this instance.  

What you may want to use instead is a change detection service like this:
