Set up Facebook instant articles

Facebook Instant Articles is available to publishers of all sizes. Instant Articles was announced in February 2016 but was officially opened to the public in April. In this article, I’m going to talk about what instant articles are, how they benefit your business and how to set them up if you have a WordPress website.

What are Facebook Instant Articles?

Facebook Instant Articles was created to address a specific issue – slow loading times on the mobile web. How many times have you clicked on an article on Facebook, only to find that you are waiting for that article to load? With instant articles, your content loads 10x faster. Instead of clicking on the link and it will take you to the website, the article will be loaded on Facebook.


Aims to provide the best experience for users on the Facebook platform. As consumers these days, we have very little time (attention) to wait for things to load. If something does not load immediately, we will click on it. As for Facebook, it offers a sub-equal experience to its users.

The results so far about Facebook are astonishing. 20% more articles are read and people are 70% less likely to leave the article. It moves as well

How do they help me?

There are pros and cons to using instant articles. Some are complaining that website traffic is declining. Some businesses rely on Facebook traffic. If you sign up for instant articles, your traffic will be reduced. But, regardless of the source, the more people who read your content the better. They also get a better experience by reading your content with faster load times.

This is what Facebook says on the subject:

Instant Articles allows people to read content from publishers on the Facebook app. In other words, when people read instant articles, they do not go directly to publishers’ websites.

However, readers will not see your sidebar or pop-up likes, which means you are less likely to turn your content into a readable one.

In short, faster load times mean a better user experience. People are more likely to read and share your content, but at the same time, your website traffic will drop and as a result, you may also see a decrease in conversions from your site.

How to set up Facebook instant articles?

1. Sign up for instant articles

Go to https://instantarticles.fb.com/ and click on sign up.

2. Select the page you want to use

Facebook will ask you to select the page you want to use for instant articles. As you can see here, I chose my personal Facebook page.

3. Connect your site

Once you do that. You will be taken to the Instant Articles configuration page. If you scroll down to Tools and then connect your site. To connect to your site, take the code provided by Facebook and place it under your head tag. Then enter your URL in the box below.

4. Submit 10 articles for review

Before you get started, Facebook needs to upload at least 10 articles for them to review. Create your articles in a production library that you can access here.

Description

What are Facebook Instant Articles?

Instant Articles is a Facebook feature that allows you to load your content ten times faster using an optimized mobile format. It is based on the same technology used in the Facebook app for mobile devices.

Instant articles load 10 times faster than a standard web page. This amazing increase in speed will provide a better user experience for mobile users.

Many popular media sites such as Buzzfeed, TechCrunch, Mashable, and countless others use it on their websites. With the Lightning Bolt icon, you can easily view instant articles in your Facebook feed.

How to create instant articles?



Step 1: Sign up

The first thing you need to do to get up and running is to sign up to join the program. You can do this at Instantarticles.fb.com.

Step 2: Select your Facebook page

After signing up, you will be given the option to select the page on which you want to activate the text:

Step 3: Claim your URL

After you select your Facebook page, you will be asked to provide the URL you would like to use for the articles. This URL works based on the URLs of all your posts (and, in most cases, your blog URL, for example, buffer.com/library).

To claim your URL, you need to add a meta tag to the <head> title of your HTML, and then add the URL to your settings. All the information you need to do this can be found in the Instant Articles settings:

Step 4: Create articles

In a test, Facebook found that publishers want a tool to publish articles on the web, mobile app, or other places where readers can view their content.

Also, reports can be printed directly from your content management system- there is no need to recreate articles on Facebook.

Publishing tools

With the WordPress plugin, Facebook has teamed up with multiple publishing platforms to create seamless integration with instant articles.

Publishing tools include integration with:

Drupal, Atavist, Medium, Perk Distributed, Rebelmouse, Sherdis, Sovereign, Stellar, Tempest. Get complete information here.

RSS feed

If you do not use WordPress or any other CMS supported by Facebook Publishing Tools, you can link your content to Facebook via RSS Feed.

New posts are automatically syndicated as instant articles every time you publish, and RSS feeds are seamlessly integrated with Facebook.

To enable publication from the RSS feed, you need to configure your content management system to create a new RSS feed that contains the full content of each article in the instant article markup (link required to assist you in formatting the feed). The developer may be required).

A guide to formatting RSS feeds in Instant Articles Markup can be found here.

API

The API allows you to create, publish, update and delete instant articles directly from your content management system and provides an excellent alternative for connecting via RSS.

A guide to using the Instant Articles API can be found here.

Step 5: Customize the style

Facebook gives you the option to customize the style of your articles during setup; Here, you can upload a logo and choose which fonts to use in your articles. Font options are currently limited to Helvetica New and Georgia font families.

Style

Step 6: Submit for review

After completing the above steps, you can submit your feed to be reviewed by Facebook to verify that all articles created from your website are properly formatted.

Facebook currently aims to review all submissions within 24-48 hours.

In more detail.

What do you need to do to enable Facebook Instant Articles in WordPress?

There are a few requirements for setting up Facebook Instant Articles on your WordPress site‌. It helps if you have one:

Facebook page for your WordPress website.

Facebook Pages App (we will show you how to do this later in this article).

At least ten or more articles on your website.

Instant articles for the WP plugin (in this article we will show you how to set it up).

Let’s start by applying for Facebook instant articles.

Facebook Signing up for instant articles

First, you need to visit the Facebook Instant Articles website and click on the signup button to get started.

Sign up for Facebook instant articles

Facebook will now ask you to select a page. Here you need to select the Facebook page for your website.

After that, check the box to accept the Instant Articles Terms and then click on the ‘Access Instant Articles Tool’ button.

Select your Facebook page

This will take you to the Publisher Tools on your Facebook page, which now has a quick articles section.

First, you need to prove your website ownership by claiming your URL.

Claim your website URL

Scroll down a bit to the Tools section of the page and click ‘Claim your URL’ to expand it. Facebook will show you the code snippet.

Meta tag to claim URL ownership

You just have to copy the code and put it in the <head> section of your WordPress site.

You can add this code to your website in two ways.

You can edit the header.php file in your child theme and paste the code before the <head> tag.

But if you do not use the child theme, you can use the Insert Header and Footers plugin. For more details, see our step-by-step guide on how to install WordPress Plugin.

After activating the plugin, go to the Settings »Insert Header & Footer page and paste the code into the header section.

Put the code in your header section

Click the Save button to save your changes.

After you add the code to your website, you need to go back to the Publisher Tools section on your Facebook page.

Add your website URL under the code you previously copied, and then click the Claim URL button.

URL claim success

The next step is to add an instant articles RSS feed for your website. Here’s how you can create an instant article for your WordPress site.

Install and activate Instant Articles for WP Plugin. Once activated, the plugin will generate an instant article for your WordPress site.

You can find the feeds by adding / feeds / instant-article after the URL of your site:

http://www.aiouhelps.com/feed/instant-articles

Copy the feed URL of your Instant Articles and go back to the Publishing Tools section of your Facebook page. Scroll down to the Tools section and click on ‘Production RSS Feeds’ to expand it.

Add instant articles feed

Paste your Instant Articles feed URL and click the Save button. Facebook will show you a successful message that your feed has been added.

Setting up the Facebook Instant Articles plugin for WordPress

In the previous step, we installed Instant Articles for WP Plugin to create RSS feeds for Instant Articles. Now you need to set up the rest of the plugin settings.

Once activated, you will notice that the plugin has added a new menu item to your WordPress admin bar labeled ‘Quick Articles’. Clicking on it will take you to the plugin settings page.

Instant Articles WP Plugin Settings

This plugin requires an App ID and a secret key for activation. You need to create a Facebook app for your page to get those keys. Let’s see how you can do this.

Creating a Facebook app for your page


First, go to the Facebook for Developers website. Click the drop-down menu next to your profile picture next to the My Apps menu in the upper right corner of the screen.

Create a new Facebook app

This will bring up a popup on the screen. Click on the website.

Select a website for your app platform

This will take you to the Quick Setup Wizard. You need to enter a name for your Facebook app. It could be anything that helps you locate the app.

Click on the ‘Create New Facebook App ID’ button to continue.

Enter a name for your FB app

A new popup will appear, asking you to provide a contact email address and select a category for your app.

Enter the email address and select Apps for the page as App category.

Provide an email and select a category for the app

Click on the Create App ID button to continue.

The popup will disappear and Facebook will now create an app for you. On the quick start page, you will see new information on how to use the app.

You should scroll down a bit to the ‘Tell me about your website’ section.

Add your website URL

Enter your WordPress website address here and click on the Next button to continue.

Although there are more steps in the setup wizard that Facebook will show you, that’s all the information you need to enter.

You can now click the ‘Skip Quick Start’ button in the top right corner of the page.

Ends soon

You will be redirected to the newly created app dashboard. You can see your app ID and your app secret key; You need to click on the ‘Show’ button.

App ID and secret key

Before you can copy these keys, you must first make your app live and public.

Click on the ‘App Review’ link from the menu on your left.

Live your app

On the next screen, you will see that your app is in development mode. Click on the toggle to change it to ‘Yes’ and stream your app live.

Now click on the dashboard link from the left-hand column to go back to your app dashboard. Copy your App ID and secret keys.

Go back to your Instant Articles for the WP Plugin Settings page on your WordPress site and paste your App ID and secret keys there.

Plugin settings‌s

Click on the Next button to continue.

The plugin settings page now shows you the login button with Facebook.

Please login with Facebook to continue

This will take you to Facebook and ask you to allow the app to access your profile information.

Once permission is granted, you will be redirected back to your WordPress site. Click the ‘Select Page’ drop-down menu to select your Facebook page.

Select your Facebook page

Your WordPress site is now ready for instant articles. There are still two feet left.

Set up style and branding for your instant articles

Go to your Facebook page and click on Publishing Tools from the Admin Bar. From your left-hand menu, click ‘Configuration’ under Instant Articles.

Instant articles style optimized for your website

Please scroll down to the Tools section and click on the Styles tab to expand it. Facebook has already added a default style for your website.

Click on the default style to customize it.

This will open a popup where you can upload your website logo. Facebook requires images that are at least 690 x 132-pixels.

Upload the logo and customize the color

After uploading the logo, click Save and click Done.

Submit your Instant Articles feed for review

Before submitting your instant feed for review, you should make sure that your instant articles contain at least ten articles.

If you’ve already published more than ten articles on your website, but the feed does not show them all, you will need to edit your last ten articles and click the Update button.

Once you have confirmed that there are ten articles in your Instant Articles feed, you are ready to submit them to Facebook for review.

Go to your Facebook page and click on Publishing Tools from the Admin Bar. After that, click on the ‘Configuration’ link under Instant Articles in your left-hand menu.

See ‘Step 2: Submit for Review’ on the Configuration Settings page.

Submit for review

If there are no errors in your Instant Articles feed, you will see a ‘Submit for Review’ button. Continue sending your feed for review and click this button.

That’s it; Instant articles will be available on your website after the Facebook team reviews and approves your feed.

Troubleshooting Tips:

Facebook needs to match your instant articles with the specifications described on their developer website. Instant Articles for WP Plugin will handle that part for you.

However, depending on the theme or plugin you are using on your site, you may see some errors or warnings. The easiest way to fix those errors is to edit the post and scroll down to the Facebook Instant Articles meta box at the bottom of the post editor.

Instant articles for warnings

Many errors are caused by plugins or themes that add content to your posts that do not support the Transformer rules used by Instant Articles for the WP Plugin.

You can create your own custom transformer rules. See the plugin documentation to learn how to add your custom transformer rules.

However, we find it difficult for most beginners to do this on their own, so you may need a developer. You can try to configure your other plugins and themes and prevent them from adding content blocks to your posts.

Wrong URL

If you’re constantly getting an empty feed error while submitting your Instant Articles feed, check the URL you are trying to add.

http://www.example.com/feed/instant-articles

http://example.com/feed/instant-articles

These are two different URLs and depending on your WordPress setup, entering the wrong URL can lead to a 404 error.

If you still see an empty feed error, try updating the last ten posts on your site. It changes their modified times and adds them to the feed.
