Use RSS Feeds to Increase Your Blog Traffic

Jul 31, 2008
Blogging is a great way to promote your business, but only if you can get people to read your blog. Are you looking for a fast, easy way to increase your blog readership? RSS feeds of your blog are the quick way to get your blog in front of thousands of people.

What are RSS Feeds?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and the premise of an feed is just as simple. This simple script takes any new content on your website and packages it in a quick and easy html coded bundle that can be added to any other website, so that hundreds of other websites can display new content on your blog as you post it. Readers can also subscribe to an feed so that they instantly can tell when you have added new content to your blog. RSS feeds are the fastest way to alert readers to the fact that you have posted new content and feeds are also the best way to distribute your blog content around the web.

Usually an RSS feed doesn't give readers an entire post or an entire article but it gives them a short teaser and a link back to your blog to get readers to visit your blog. This can be a great way to get more readers to hit your blog.

How Can an Feed Drive Blog Traffic?

Most people don't have time to surf the Web all day long waiting for their favorite blogs to add new content or searching for new blogs that have content they are interested for. If a reader likes your blog that reader can subscribe to your feed to receive updates through email when you update your blog or that person can add the script for your RSS feed to his or her own blog so that everyone that reads that person's blog will see your blog too. If the content on your blog looks interesting it will draw a lot of readers from blogs that have similar content.

Submitting your Blog Content to Other Sites

The best way to get lots of traffic to your blog is to make sure that the feed of all the different categories of your blog get submitted to sites that are set up to be cleaning houses for feeds. There are lots of websites that distribute RSS feeds from blogs to other sites around the Web and allow readers to sign up for RSS feeds from the blogs that they like but it can take a lot of time and effort to submit your own RSS feed to all of those sites.
