Top 16 Free, High PR, Easy to Submit RSS Feeds to build Article traffic

Updated on October 13, 2010
Free Feed Lists build traffic!
Free Feed Lists build traffic! | Source

Writing a creative, informative and helpful article or hub is pointless if you don’t get any traffic going to it. That is why you need a free, quick and easy traffic building plan to attract readers. From my research, automating or auto submitting your articles can be disastrous as you risk spamming issues and placing your links to places considered to be link farms by Google. Once Google computes that your article is on a link farm, you might as well consider your future readership to be a big, fat zero. Whenever I have used automated backlink systems, I end up having to change the title of the article and developing a whole new URL to fix the damage I have done. Then, I am still left with promoting the article the right way. As you can imagine, the extra time put in to fix the auto submission problem wastes time and costs valuable ad revenues.

Most of us want to manage our time between writing innovative, high quality articles and building some traffic to it so readers can find it. What I try to do is spend about 3 to 4 hours writing a good article that I think will be of interest and then spend about one hour promoting it. If it is promoted properly, I can expect long term traffic. Over time, Google indexes my article with many keywords and I receive natural traffic through sharing and backlinks created by the readers themselves.

 A Simple, Free 5 Prong approach to building traffic to your article, hub or blog

I generally use a five prong approach to promoting my freshly written article. The approaches I use do not take longer than one hour per article. Providing one hour of time is a small investment given the time and efforts put into writing a creative, high quality article in the first place. First, I create about 10 backlinks to good quality, do follow sites. If you are looking for high quality backlinks, have a look here, here, here and here. Second, I ping my freshly written article on some free ping sites. You can find a list of where you can ping your articles free here. Third, I group my hub so interested readers can read another angle. Hubpages has put out a good article on how to group your hubs by category here. Fourth, I submit my hubs to Bing and Yahoo as these two sites index faster whenever I do a manual submission for some reason. Finally, I do a Feed on the RSS Feed Directories that are well ranked by Google. Creating a feed seems to speed up the indexing of your article and provides another valuable backlink to boot. All these approaches applied in unison seem to give me a solid 50 plus hits per day per article on average over the long haul.

Creating a Feed

Before you can submit your article to the feeds, you may need to create a feed URL. The fastest and easiest way I have found to do this is to use feedburner. Feedburner is a Google creation that keeps track of my feed results. I usually stick to one feed creator as it makes it easier for me to keep track of which feeds I have created and sent out.

In support of evidence for the real origin of the game of Golf there are proofs which show that the Dutch language had a word called kolf

      When operated at the SSS, no diagnostic or technical measuring pro-cedures are possible, as no measuring technology is incorporated; in this instance, OPPS / OPS are used predominantly for programming control units (flashing). Communication with the vehicle can be performed both via the MOST and via the OBD interface. The OBD interface is required for the power supply to the OPPS / OPS and has communication properties via which the vehicle can be identified and the data to be programmed can be determined. From CIP version 7.0, it is possible to delete fault code memories via OPPS / OPS.

      TaylorMade R11S Driver 5 years ago

      Most of the attention has been focused on the R11 Driver, but our test reveals that the fairway wood is more useful overall to improving your score than the R11 Driver.

      huwoniu 5 years ago

      The Taylormade Burner Superfast driver is one of the newest clubs which weighs only 284 grams and is extra-long at 46.5 inches long and when combined together they become the perfect recipe for increased speed and distance.

    • profile image

      huwoniu 5 years ago

      Now we get to the bread and butter of the R11. During the first range session, I was hitting the ball with decent distance and my natural fade that I hit with most of my clubs. Despite the temptation of trying to mess around with the FCT and the ASP, I decided to keep the setting on neutral. After slowing down the downswing, as I have a violent downswing, I was making better contact and the Blur was responding better. After the range, I went to the course to take it out for its first round. First hit was a low screamer that didn't go too far, maybe about 150 yards. Again, more of my fault for having a too aggressive downswing.

    • profile image

      huwoniu 6 years ago

      Overall, I like the R11 a lot. It is very forgiving and the look of the white crown and black face is amazing to me. In conclusion, I would give this a solid 9 out of 10 rating and can possibly go to a perfect 10 with more rounds played.

      I do it for every hub, Jason. I find Google Indexing is fast, but Yahoo and Bing quite delayed. Adding your URL seems to increase indexing by a few weeks from my tests. Doing each hub takes me only 2 minutes max. You can try submitting your hub profile. I haven't tried that one to see if results improve.
