Having a successful article website
Now, if you have decided or have already run an article resource website, you will most likely want to stand out among other popular site within your categories.
The most obvious point you should bear in mind is to, keep your article content fresh and updated. Using free content available in market are not advisable. Try to come out with something unique and perhaps do some comparison, like what interesting or popular topics your competitors do not have as you can consider creating for your site. You can easily know this by doing some market research in various community forums. Just remember, quality content is king!
Another point to note is to spice up some interesting RSS feeds to public. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It is an XML-based format for content distribution that contains a list of items, each of which is identified by a link. Each item can have any amount of metadata associated with it. RSS allows user or their trafffics to see your site topics without going out of their way to visit it. While this seems bad at first glance, it actually improves your site's visibility; by making it easier for your users to keep up to date with your site - allowing them to see it way they want to - it's more likely that they'll know when something that interests them is available on your site.
You can easily do so with Vezine, create as many feed as you want. An example can be found here in this site, located at your right hand side (Latest News). Once someone click on topic title, s/he will be redirected to site where original content is (Full Story).
Of course, in order to attract audience to use your feeds on their website, you will need to convince them with fresh and updated content often as mentioned above. Hence, whenever new articles are being publish by you or your writers, your audience's website who are using your feeds will also have latest articles topic listed. This is one of benefit of RSS.
Optionally, have designers to design a nice professional looking theme for your Vezine. Navigation usuability do play a big role in this, so choose someone who you are sure they have knowledge in this. Refer to The Art Of Vezine for an idea on how to design themes for your Vezine.
