RSS Feeds

    I was just wondering if anyone could assist.  I have started to create Ezine articles to promote some of my hubs - is it possible to create an RSS Feed of these articles for further promotion?

    I'm sure it is but I think it would be better JUST to promote your hub articles if those are the ones you are trying to increase rank and traffic for, because:

    1. Google values one way backlinks more highly than link exchanges (so linking back and forth between ezine/HP could lower the backlink value.)
    2. Promoting the Ezine articles won't help your hubpages at all since you'll be setting up backlinks for your ezine articles instead of for your hubpages articles. Basically you'll be backlinking a backlink.

    If you still want to create an RSS feed have a look at some of the hubs using the search box top right OR chances are one of the forum experts will be along soon to answer! smile

      thanks for the info WryLilt, I was really intending to promote the Ezine articles so that in theory, more people would find them and potentially click on the links to my hubs (wasn't intending to place the RSS pointing to my Ezine articles on my hubs as I agree with you about link exchanges!)

    On Ezine articles you do have your author feed rss. I have found if you take each ezine article url and put it into html2rss.com that you will generate better results. Html2 rss takes up to 50 url's but my experience has been that five url's works a lot better.

    Once you have your html2rss feed submit it to badassrss and feedage.

    There is more you can do with that feed, but what I have explained here provides some very good results, insofar as building backlinks and exposure in the serps.

    Join html2rss, its free, submit your urls, usually copy and paste from notepad, and the site will generate a feed for you. That is the feed you use.

    Otherwise, promote your author rss feed. You can locate the feed in your ezine back office, under author tools. You want the one that says "View My Article Feeds".

      Terry, thanks so much for the clear and helpful instructions - that's exactly what I wanted!
