Whether or not you are new to Internet marketing, if you have ever visited a blog in your life, then you have likely seen an icon somewhere on the site that invites you to syndicate the site. This little icon is the blog’s RSS feed. But, what is RSS feed?
Let me start by offering you an explanation of what RSS feed is. RSS is the acronym for Really Simple Syndication. Put simply, since there are so many websites on the World Wide Web, it can be quite difficult to keep track of them all. You would use RSS feed to syndicate, or to subscribe to the feed of another website; in other words, RSS feed allows you to keep track of the stories and headlines of other websites. When you subscribe to a website, you don’t have to visit the website to find out about any new content that has been added, but rather, you would use a feed reading website to find out about the latest content that has been added to that website.
Why is RSS feed beneficial? Well, basically, because it saves you time. Instead of having to visit your favorite websites one by one, you can subscribe to the sites via their RSS feed, gather all of the feeds from the sites in on one feed reading website and then read the latest content from the websites with ease. RSS feed makes reading the information from your favorite websites a much more efficient process.
So, why then, should an Internet marketer make use of RSS feed? Well, because it allows you to keep your site visitors updated on your websites. With RSS feed, your subscribers will be able to stay in the loop of what is going on with your website. It’s a really easy way for you to spread any news about your website to your site visitors. So, if you add a new product, a new service or just new content to your website, your subscribers will be able to find out about it with ease. When your site visitors are able to find out about updates to your website with ease, you can find greater success.
Adding RSS feed to your website is a breeze. Most web programs, such as WordPress, offer an RSS option. So go ahead and add RSS feed and increase the success of your website with this simple, yet powerful option.
