The next few posts will be devoted to places that you can get content from. In our discussion today, we will look at RSS Feeds. Let’s begin by defining what an RSS Feed is. To begin with, this is somethings that a blogger or the owner of the blog must set up. One of the main places that you can create one is through Feedburner.com. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. Basically it allows you and others to keep track of changes that are made in either your website or other websites.
The advantages of RSS feeds are that when you set up your feed, it is not just a one way method of letting people know about your blog. Just as other people will know when you have updated your blog, other sites have RSS feeds so that you can make your blog have the ability to get feeds from other blogs or even other feeds. This can all be done automatically. Your blog will have the ability to not only show your posts, but it will also be able to show posts that other people have written on other blogs. When someone adds a post to that other site, then you blog will also be updated with that post.
What this does for your site is to have content constantly being added to your blog. Additionally, you’ll find that this is something that your search engines really like, which allows the possibility of your website or your blog to get closer to that number one position in the search engine.
