Near-Duplicate RSS Feed Items Title

  • 9 July 2022

I have an input RSS feed with Near-Duplicate title entries, for example:

Elon Musk notifies Twitter he is terminating deal
Elon Musk terminates $44 billion Twitter deal
Elon Musk is pulling out his deal to buy Twitter
Elon Musk kills Twitter deal

I use this input feed to generate Filtered Feed as zapier output. The issue is that I want zapier to remove duplicates in feed and only add one item to resulting feed instead of all four duplicates. The logic can be like this, for example:
when a new feed item is detected in input feed, then compare it’s “title” to “all items’ titles” in resulting feed and if 4 words match, then don’t add that item to resulting feed.
Please let me know if there is any method that you now of to accomplish this.
Many thanks :)

Hey there, @guyaftab! Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Community!

I wonder if Filter by Zapier would do the trick for you! Here’s a link to a similar question that may help get you on the right track:
