An RSS is an abbreviation for “Really Simple Syndication”. RSS feeds encompass content of the web including blog posts, news information, audio, and video in different, consistent formats that readers have subscription access to. Subscribers are then fed the content when updated, which allows users to have access to newly updated content without having to visit the website.
Who will see it and why is it important?
RSS feeds are perfect ways to stay away from the need for backlink creation and yet get readers engaged with your website content. They also improve visibility for search engines while reaching out to a new target audience. The RSS feed is a very viable and affordable option compared to other means of distributing media, such as email newsletters.
In terms of speed, RSS feeds provide easier and faster access to newly uploaded content for any loyal visitor.
Some services, like TwitterFeed, add and place newly uploaded content automatically from the newsfeed to different social platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter.
- Having your RSS feed under control offers you important benefits, such as:
- Assisting subscribers to easily have and maintain access to your website;
- Enhancing the online visibility of your website;
- Increasing the subscription base of your website;
- Providing your website an affordable and easy promotion medium; and
- Maintaining the interest of your loyal subscribers with fresh content.
