XML Feed Format

Here are some simple guidelines for creating an XML feed in order to include your ads in Voobay. If you would like additional information about the XML format, check Wikipedia.

The UTF-8 XML file has one ‘Voobay’ tag, and one or more ‘item’ elements. Each ‘item’ element has the following fields:
