RSS, which stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’ is a communication means by which many web sites used to keep their readers updated on the availability of new information published and posted on their sites. A feed is a communication channel as well as the medium where information is formatted according to specific format (for e.g. RSS format or Atom ). One of the best ways to promote your website is by submitting your site feed to major online portal such as Yahoo RSS Feed.

A reader can subscribe to a site feed using what is called the RSS reader. There are many different RSS readers which you can use to access a site feed. For instance, try to subscribe to this website feed; you will notice on the upper right hand corner of the feed there is a ‘Subscribe Now’ section that display a number of feed readers which you can use to subscribe to my feed.

Here is a list of RSS feed directories which you can use to promote your site RSS feed: Most of the feed directories are free to use so you have nothing to loose. It may seems rather cumbersome to go through each and submit your feed manually so you may wish to consider investing in a good software utility that automates feed submission.

Should You Consider Autoblogging?

I am not an enthusiasts and certainly not an advocate of autoblogging but I do think automated blogging strategy has its place in the Internet marketing world.  Do check out my thoughts on autoblogging and related topics  on autoblogging with blogger as well as my review of Autoblog Samurai.

You don’t have to risk your websites being penalize by Google for implementing autoblogging because so long as you don’t spam and give what Google wants you should be fine . The simplest method to avoid Google slap is by including the link to the source of the article that you extract and publish on your website.  Do make sure you do not have any duplicate contents in any of your web pages.

To be on the safe side, do not pin all your online income solely on autoblogs.  One caveat regarding blogger blogs. If you are using Google account to create autoblogs, try to limit the number of  autoblogs created on the same PC to five or less.

There are observations and feedback from  autoblogging community that Google alert is raised on multiple blogs created using one account or using the same computer IP  address. It may or may not be true but why take the risk?  Try to create multiple blogger blogs using different PC.

In summary you have got nothing much to lose by automating some of your niche blog content posting. Do so judiciously and with moderate amount of extract contents intermix with unique contents.  Always remember to include the link to the original source of the article that you publish in your autoblog.
