I would suggest that you keep your advertising to less than 20% of your feed. That would mean that in an RSS feed with 10 items in it, you have no more than 2 items that are advertising. I can see this number though getting dictated byrepparttar likes of Google and other advertising agencies.

The advertising must add value to your visitor

The advertising will need to look like a news story in order to be successful. If it is simply tagged as advertising,repparttar 148393 click through rate will most likely be horrible. Atrepparttar 148394 same time though,repparttar 148395 link will need to be truly useful for someone looking for information on that particular topic. If you have a feed on maintaining a vibrant garden andrepparttar 148396 advertisers' link is about being computer parts, this would very much turn off visitors and webmasters alike. Companies like Google though have become pretty good at targeting their advertisers torepparttar 148397 context ofrepparttar 148398 page or content so I don't see this as a big problem when using these services.

Should you add advertising to your RSS feeds? Yes, but be cautious about it. RSS feeds are truly useful to your overall marketing goals even if you abstain from putting any advertising in them.
