Do you want more website traffic? Do you want to attract more visitors to your blog? Then get the word out. One way of doing this is by letting others know about your blog’s RSS feed.
The RSS feed is basically a text file that contains info about the latest updates in your blog. For example, you’ll find in it a listing of the latest X number of posts, their corresponding blog post titles, and an excerpt (or sometimes a full version) of the article. In most cases, the blog post title is clickable, and visitors can easily head on over to your web page.
So, how do you let others know about your RSS feed? Submit your RSS feed to various RSS directories. For example, you have Feedage, Syndic8, and a host of others.
This can be mind-numbingly boring, though. You can choose to just grit your teeth and do it manually, or you can outsource the task of submitting your RSS feeds. You can also use software which automates this process for you.
And if you want to go all out, you can even set-up an RSS feed submission service where you outsource the task to people who know how to use software which automates this task. The main things you’ll need to guard yourself from are spam complaints.
If your blog or site provides useful information which RSS feed directory owners will not find spammy, then using software to submit your feed to, say, 50 directories will be all right. But that’s not a guarantee, ok? It is possible to catch a directory owner on a bad day, which means your RSS directory account can get disabled or deleted.
Anyway… have you promoted your blog’s RSS feed lately? Try it, and watch your traffic (and online earnings) grow! 🙂
