Why Every Site Needs RSS

Or you might want to try these programs to format your information, so you can post it to your website:

ListGarden RSS Feed Generator Program Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux, open source http://www.softwaregarden.com/products/listgarden/index.html

RSS Headliner Create RSS Feed file on-line to copy and post to your site. http://www.webdevtips.com/webdevtips/codegen/rss.shtml

But what if you don't often make changes or additions to your site? There is a new site that offers a solution to that problem. Shared RSS provides feed by TOPIC rather than publisher. So you simply post your message inrepparttar appropriate topic category (there are thousands to choose from) and share your feed with others publishing onrepparttar 126395 same topic. It is a free service that you certainly should use if you do not publish your own feed.


Wouldn't that mean (I can hear someone object) that I would be sharing a feed with my competition? Well yes, but that isn't a bad thing. It's like all those antique stores that congregate inrepparttar 126396 same part of town -- shoppers flock there and wander store to store, torepparttar 126397 benefit of all.

Don't kid yourself, customers already know about your competition. For every customer of yours who visits their sites because they found an RSS link on your site, you will receive one, two or three visits from potential customers who found your information on an RSS link they discovered on your competitors site, or in a catalog of RSS feeds. The benefit far outweighsrepparttar 126398 risk.

And RSS feeds are not just for business. If other sites submit torepparttar 126399 shared feed they will bring with them more people interested in that topic, who may become your future customers.

No, RSS is not just for Blogs anymore! Start your own or submit to a shared feed, either way you can only benefit.
