Rss Feeds are a perfect way to promote your blog – if you're doing it right. You probably already know blogging can be a great way to earn some extra cash, but did you know that getting an RSS feed would boost blogging money?
If you've decided not to have a feed, there's a good chance you didn't disable the RSS feed option when you first registered to your blogging website. Many new bloggers forget they have this skill, or they just don't know how to use it properly. Let's continue with the basics and begin by discussing what even an RSS feed is.
If you’re new to blogging and really have no idea what an RSS feed is, don’t worry; Brandboy is there to rescue you ,they’re easy to figure out, and once you do figure them out you’ll be able to promote your blog and generate traffic more than you ever thought possible!
In order to be able to read an RSS feed, a user will need to download feed reader or aggregator software. Then, a user can subscribe to a feed simply by inputting the feed’s URL, or you can click on a handy “feed” icon that may be provided on the web browser. The reader will then check all of the sites that you have subscribed to on a frequent basis, and it will tell you when ever there is an update.
The most important thing that any blogger can do is make sure that they are continually updating their blog. Nothing will kill off your traffic and ranking in search results more than having old, stale material. Keeping regular updates will keep you connected with your followers, as well as keep the search engines continually indexing your information.
The best way to optimize your blog in RSS is to write a unique and compelling excerpt for the feeder to pick up on. The excerpt needs to include links that will invite them to your blog so that they can check out the post, BUT you want to make sure that the excerpt does not actually have the same words or the same phrases as your original entry.
You may be wondering why this is important. There is a lot of blog post stealing out there, and people will hunt down your posts by keyword and steal them based on keywords their RSS feed is picking up on. If you have different words or phrases in the excerpt that are not in the blog, then their aggregator or reader will not be able to “steal” your blog post, but you will still be promoting your blog through RSS AND those who are trying to rip off your posts and other content will be giving you valuable backlinks.
A lot of new bloggers have never heard of RSS autodiscovery. This neat feature will allow aggregators and web browsers alike to detect your blog’s RSS feed. In order to use this feature, all you need to do is include a bit of code to the head section of your blog’s template. The code is :
Make sure that you surround the code with “”, and you’re set.
