RSS Syndication is a great way to get content out into the world. I’ve used RSS Syndication for one thing only, and that’s to get content out of my eyes and onto my web site. It’s a lot cheaper to do this than it is to have people come to my website and look at my stuff, which is what happens with all of my web site traffic.
All of my web sites run on RSS Syndication, and because of the cost savings and the ease in use, I use RSS Syndication almost exclusively. My web sites all use this feed format, and while some of them require you to register with them (it’s the only way to get the custom RSS feed), others are automatically created for you. In other words, I don’t have to know anything about creating feeds myself.
The good news is that you can create your own feed and publish it to your web site for free. This is actually one of the most difficult things I have ever done, but I found a neat little trick that made publishing it relatively easy.
The first thing you need to do is subscribe to RSS Feeds. This is the cool part. You can do this by visiting your favorite search engine and using the name of your web site to find a feed. Just go to the RSS Feed Directory and type in the web site domain name.
Once you find a feed to subscribe to, just visit the web site and subscribe to the feed. If you want to subscribe to multiple feeds, just make a new subscription. The web site will deliver the feeds directly to your e-mail address.
Now all you have to do is post the content from your web site. First you’ll need to configure your e-mail account so that you can add it to your spam filter. Once you’ve done that, you should be able to click on the RSS icon in your e-mail client and see a new item called “Subscribe to RSS Feeds.” Click on the “Add to Spam” box and send the content to the e-mail address associated with the feed.
Once the content has been delivered to your inbox, you can use the RSS Syndication editor to add other items to your content. For example, if you would like to post a new graphic, simply click on the graphic and then click on the + button on the toolbar. Then you can add the graphic to your web site in a couple of clicks. When you’re finished, simply click on the publish button, and you are done. You can’t beat the convenience of RSS Syndication!
