We are setting up an RSS feed for a client’s press releases. This is a first step for the client that is totally new to RSS and syndication in general. This idea actually supports a current search engine b2b promotion.
Anyway, I thought that it might be useful to offer snippets of what we’re finding in the blogesphere as we ready a client presentation. I’ll update this category as we go along and (big surprise) call it RSS.
Advantages 1. Will drive traffic to landing page 2. SEO 3. helps gets his press releases up & running
Increase the visibility of your feeds
Many business sites report substantial increases in traffic when they put RSS feeds on the site. But you have to make your feeds visible. Once you’ve created your file you must register your feeds with the search engines and blog search engines so that your feeds can be found. Submit them to sites that register RSS Feeds (newsisfree, Syndic8.com).
Whats the difference between blog and RSS directories and engines? Do you have to submit to both? You can often get better placement in feed directories and in Yahoo’s RSS Directory than you can from regular search engines, and often, inclusion is instant.
Broaden the audience that sees your content – your RSS feeds will get picked up and published on other websites. Use RSS promotion to drive more traffic to your website – syndication brings you new audiences.
