Syndication Limit FAQs
What is a syndication limit?
Your syndication limit is the number of licensed articles you can publish in a month based on your package. Note: custom articles created for you by the Matcha team and articles sourced from our rotating free collection do not count towards your syndication limit.
When does my syndication limit reset?
Your syndication limit will reset on the 1st of the month. You have until the last day of the month to use your syndicated articles.
How do I know how many articles I have left for the month?
Your monthly syndication limit is represented via the Matcha formula modal in your dashboard. You can also see your syndication limit on the menu bar inside the Matcha app.
When should I publish?
We recommend “batch publishing,” or publishing all your articles the first week of the month, so that you can test content over the following weeks.
