How to Add Free Content to Your Website

Health and Human Services offers a free way for you to get public health and research information for your website. Using this information saves you time and money because you won’t have to write your own information or worry about updating it. You can choose topics and fit them in with existing information on your website and they’ll display in the style of your site. Follow the step-by-step instructions below to get started and be sure read the HHS Syndication usage guidelines.

  1. Go to the Storefront
    HHS Syndication Storefront
  2. Create an account
    Select REGISTER at the top of the page. Enter your contact information and create a password. Creating an account is free and doesn’t obligate you to do anything.
    Example of a registration page with fields for entering name, email, and password.
  3. Sign In
    After you have created your account, the storefront will prompt you to SIGN IN with your email and new password.
    Example of a sign in page displaying fields for entering email and password.
  4. Create a List(s)
    This step is optional but highly recommended to help you stay organized when using the storefront. Select LISTS from the menu at the top right of the page.
    Example of the navigation menu where users can select lists.
    Select CREATE LIST then add the Name and Description for your list. You can create as many lists as you need to help you stay organized. You’ll be adding pages to these lists for use now and/or in the future.
    Example of the create list page for entering the name of a new list, description and media items.
  5. Search for health and research information
    Begin searching for content by topics you are looking for that relate to your website. You have the option to use the Advanced Search to narrow your search results.
    Example of a page displaying the search box where topics can be entered.
  6. View information you might want for your website
    To review what’s on a particular page, select the title of the page.
    Example of the search results displaying page names.
    More information about the page is displayed.
    Example of a page displaying the media type, code, and preview of content for the topic page selected.
  7. Select pages
    If you want a page for your website, or if you’d like to save it for later, select ADD TO LIST on the informational page of the content.
    Example of a page displaying button “Add to List” that saves a page to their list.
  8. Copy and paste the code
    You will see a page with all the information you need to post material on your website. You (or your website developer) can copy the code with or without jQuery depending on what your website uses. Simply paste the code into the section of your website where you would like the information to appear.
    Example of a page displaying the code that gets placed into your website.
    To find pages you saved for later:

    After selecting pages and adding to a list, you can return to your list later by clicking LISTS at the top of the page. Click the name of a list and you’ll see your pages under the section titled Media Items. You will be able to see the items you chose and return to the pages for information or to get the code.
    Example of a page displaying the names of pages already saved in your list.
    Congratulations, you’ve done it! The information will appear immediately. And, it will be updated automatically when we have new scientific evidence on that topic. You don’t need to do another thing, though we would appreciate your feedback on how it’s working for you.
