Torepparttar 127938 Googlebot, my page that hadrepparttar 127939 RSS feed incorporated into it was as good as a page that was being updated daily, and in its judgement, was a page that was worth visiting daily.

What this means to you, is that you will have your site being indexed more frequently byrepparttar 127940 Googlebot and so any new pages that you add to your site will be picked up much faster than your competitors.

How does this benefit you as a marketer?

Well, for example, let's says a top Internet Marketer comes out with a new product that you review and write up a little article on, and that your competitors dorepparttar 127941 same.

Google generally tends to index pages atrepparttar 127942 start ofrepparttar 127943 month and if you miss that update, you will probably need to wait tillrepparttar 127944 next month to even see your entry in.

But, since your site has RSS feeds, it now gets indexed more frequently. Sorepparttar 127945 chances of getting your page indexed quickly are much higher.

This gives you an advantage overrepparttar 127946 competition, as your review will show up sooner inrepparttar 127947 search results than theirs.

Imagine what an entire month's advantage could do to your affiliate sales!

Why Javascript Feeds Are Not Effective

Some sites offer javascript code that generates content sourced from RSS feeds for your site.

These are of absolutely no value in terms of search engine rankings, asrepparttar 127948 googlebot cannot read javascript andrepparttar 127949 content is not interpreted as part of your page.

What you need is code that parsesrepparttar 127950 RSS feed and rendersrepparttar 127951 feed as html content that's part of your page.

This is achieved using server side scripting languages like PHP or ASP.

A good free ASP script is available from Kattanweb

An equally good PHP script is CARP

So in conclusion, besides optimizing on page and off page factors, adding RSS feeds to your pages should be an important part of your strategy to boost your search engine rankings.
