Top 10 places to put your RSS feed - for super-easy free traffic

RSS - Really Simple Sindication

To celebrate my first 1000 pageviews, here's a really simple tip to get a bit more traffic and spread the work about your Hubs (and/or blog) - submit your feed to a few directories.

You only need to submit it once, and every time you add a new Hub, your feed will be updated on every directory that lists it. Cool.

On your profile, there's a link marked "Subscribe to RSS feed." If you click it, your browser will probably fill up with weird text (this is XML - woo!) so we need to find something useful for it to do!

Right clicking and copying the link will let you easily paste it into any of these feed directories - there are many many more out there which may give "better" results - but I've selected these initially as an entry point based on the following criteria:

  • Ease of submission
  • Quality of existing feeds
  • No login required
  • Useful extra features

...and number 10? HubPages of course - just put your feed in an RSS capsule on each of your hubs, like this:

      Thanks Canklefish - I had exactly the same problem myself.

      After I got bored of clicking on dead links and being redirected to login pages, I thought I'd make a list of the ones that worked easily - and then thought why not share it!

      Glad you found it useful.

      Thank you for this definitive listing of top RSS sites. I've been searching for a bit now, and many of the listings are simply affiliate links.

      Also, many are either outdated, or many of the Hubs centered around the topic simply say, 'just add your RSS feed to several aggregators, and blah blah blah' then never really go into detail on the process.

      Thanks. Great Hub.
