RSS 101 Tutorial Part 6

Tips for Creating Effectual RSS Feeds

Associate RSS with Existing Efforts

RSS is not a magic bullet but one great aspect of any Internet marketing program.

Accordingly, advertise aggressively on the Internet, track click through rate, focalize on delivering smart content through RSS, newsletters and ezines, and confirm that everything complements each other. Though independently created and distributed, none of these entities should contradict the other. The RSS feed content should therefore reflect and support the information included in other publications.

Remember the Intent of RSS

Always remember the intent of RSS a tool to direct consumers to detailed information of their choice. Not ever get tempted to contain marketing elements such as pop-ups, banners, classified advertisements, or sales letters in your RSS feed. Though nothing stops you from doing so technically, refrain from adding complete articles and other lengthy descriptions that might annoy readers.

RSS is gaining popularity cause it does not enclose any marketing gimmicks.

Use Importance Content

Users are on control. Make them choose you. RSS gives absolute control to users over the content they want to accept. If they do not like what they fetch, it takes them only a couple of clicks to cancel their subscription forever a somewhat time ruining process if one wanted to cancel an email-based subscription. To top it all, as a content provider, you fetch only a few sentences per item to create a mark on your thoughts. All these factors deliver content again more worthy when it comes to creating RSS feeds.

Your RSS feed content should be compelling enough for the users to retain their subscription, and recommend it to others.

Use Correct Keywords

Use keyword rich content in your RSS feeds and associated articles to grab readers’ attention. Another reason for giving more estimation to keywords is that RSS feeds are first indexed by machines and software algorithms. Confirm that the title of your RSS feed is keyword optimized.

Be sure about the keywords you use. In addition to the feed content meeting software requirements, they should gel with what the users are looking for.

They may necessarily not be what you think. Before using them, cross check them with industry standards and sites that help you identify the associated key words.

Use Meaningful Links

Endorse that all items in your RSS feed are linked properly. After uploading the feed check it to become certain that all the links work and clicking on a link takes you to the intended page.

Update Feed Content

Aim at frequent inclusion of new useful newsletter in your RSS feeds. However, if that is not possible, always pinpoint on the first-class of your content. Users can wait for valuable newsletter, but it will take them no time to subscribe out of your RSS feed if even for once you fail to deliver respected content.

Update feed content only when you have new info to share. Shape sure that this new news will serve some purpose for your subscribers.
