Small Business Blogs, Blogging and RSS

Jan 2, 2008
Two of the best and powerful promoting tools for small business today are blogs and RSS feeds. They are simple to set up and offer many benefits for the small business owner. You need to create an extensive network of contacts to make the most monetary proceeds and accolades from the small business trade industry related to your small business.

Blogs have become all the rage for personal and business use for several reasons. They are great communication tools, they can be informative, interactive, and integrate with many other platforms with ease, plus a blog will gain popularity in a search engine usually much quicker than a standard website could for the same search term.

RSS feeds provide fresh content that is updated in real time meaning it will never be content that has been parked on a page for awhile, and content that may not even be relevant anymore. RSS feeds on a wide and constantly increasing range of topics are obtainable easily through subscriptions to them and RSS readers. Many new browsers as well as the online blogs you can create have RSS subscribe and read features built into them making the process of getting RSS feeds for your website and blog that much easier.

Content and distinctive features on a website and in a blog are powerful agents that pull substantial quantities of traffic to your small business website and blog. Furthermore, the traffic that is pulled towards your small business website or blog comes from search engines redirecting them to your site. Why is this redirection from a search engine important to your website, blog, and earning potential? The redirected traffic is gathered from search users searching for keywords specific to your website or blog, raising the likelihood that this traffic will have a higher interest in what you present to them on your real estate or small business website and blog.

You do not need to buy expensive and complicated software programs to design and publish a blog online. Blogger.com and other online blog creation tools help you create free blogs following simple instructions, design templates, ad ons, and automated processing and publishing in as little as five minutes.

RSS feeds are very easy to find. Simply look for and subscribe to them on the websites you visit in the course of your real estate or small business work, and also on those websites you visit to get current event news and entertainment suggestions from. Many blogs and the newer browsers also have RSS suggesting tools to help you find RSS feeds you may not have known where to search for but that are strongly related to your small business or have a high interest level to them.

Your website designing tools may feature RSS, which will make it a snap to install RSS on your website. Not to worry if your website designing tools do not include this feature. You can still easily install RSS on your website. There are plentiful numbers of web articles and helpful advice and guidance in forums for small business, which can help you with the self installation of RSS on your website.

Blogging amplifies your connection with your contacts for durable working relationships that raises the potential for massive proceeds and enviable business reputation. Blogging also augments your rise in page rank in search engines. RSS for your website and blog will also have a pleasant rank lifting in search engines with little effort on your part besides installing RSS and the subscribing to feeds.

There you have it. Small business blogs, blogging, and RSS are effective, powerful promotional tools with many benefits that you should take advantage of for the success of your real estate or small business.
