Where to Submit to an RSS Feed for More Traffic
What is an RSS feed?
RSS feed is short for "Really Simple Syndication" and sometimes "Rich Site Summary", I also hear it can mean, "I'm ready for some stories". It is a format used for delivering regularly changing web content, such as a hub or a blog. When a person visits a site, if there is a orange RSS feed it will be in the right hand side of the tool bar. Your RSS feed shows your most current stories. An example of what my RSS feed looks like is http://hubpages.com/author/kmackey32/latest/?rss. To Find your RSS feed, click on your profile and the RSS feed will be located under your picture. I right click on it and scroll down to properties. Your RSS address will open.
Anyone on the internet that publishes can publish a feed and it is very easy. You do not have to install a program if you do not want to. Some of the sites I choose to submit my feed too are My Yahoo, Google Personalized Homepage, My MSN or My AOL. These sites are all free.
My Yahoo is one of the worlds most used feed readers. Once you are at the site click on Add Content on the left hand side. Look to the bottom of the box, you will see an add RSS feed, click on it. I always copy and paste my RSS feed inside the box. Then click I'm done. That's it, now wasn't that easy?
