Copyright © 2004 Tinu AbayomiPaul

Last week, I cheated on my long-time lover Google, with my old boyfriend Yahoo. And ever since that day, I have considered becoming a bigamist.

(To full understand what that crazy drivel was about read my last article about how to get your RSS feed listed at Yahoo within hours - in 5 simple steps here: .)

Today, I decided to go ahead and breakrepparttar law - Yahoo is my new other husband.

What am I talking about, and what does this mean for your site?

When I first discovered that you could get into Yahoo’s RSS Feed directory so quickly, I started making a lot of observations about their site. The first thing I noticed is that they made some subtle changes to their search page. That same day, I noticed that certain sites have more information in their listings than others.

Try this search at Yahoo for example "Get Your RSS Feed Listed Within Hours", quotes and all.

Scroll throughrepparttar 128294 results. Notice for search results number 7 - and number 8 -repparttar 128295 link for a searcher to add your feed from search results is right onrepparttar 128296 page.

If you're an RSS user, you getrepparttar 128297 power of this already.

5 Reasons Why Your Site Needs to Publish a News Feed

Written by Tinu Abayomi-Paul

It seems like everyone is talking about RSS Feeds. They’ve been around for years butrepparttar buzz is up about them asrepparttar 128293 technology continues to go mainstream. Some people are reportedly abandoning their browsers and viewingrepparttar 128294 web through their readers - but they hardly representrepparttar 128295 general public yet.

So does your site need one?

This question is somewhat like asking if your site needs a newsletter. Sure,repparttar 128296 sky won’t fall tomorrow if you don’t get one today, but once you realizerepparttar 128297 benefits of having a news feed for your site, and try it for yourself, you may become an addict likerepparttar 128298 rest of us.

Reason #1: More free traffic to your site

I’m not exaggerating when I say that a frequently updated feed can bring you massive amounts of traffic in a short time period. This won’t be true forever.

Here’s a snapshot in PDF format, of justrepparttar 128299 feed-originating traffic to a new page of my site forrepparttar 128300 first 24 hours it opened.

Not exactly a stampede, but here’srepparttar 128301 good part.

Onrepparttar 128302 fourth day,repparttar 128303 feed traffic doubled, and all other traffic continued to rise atrepparttar 128304 same rate.

That's my fifth active feed ofrepparttar 128305 twenty I have spread out over four sites, and I get similar results each time. In thirty days, that would be at least 5,000 new targeted visitors - again, this is not counting my present traffic, or those who try my feed and stay subscribed, nor does it factor in what happens whenrepparttar 128306 traffic doubles again..

I can’t promise yourepparttar 128307 exact same results, no one can. But you should know that my feed is targeted towards a crowed market - if you know how to set up your feed properly and correctly apply your keyword research, you could have better results..

Those visitors, fromrepparttar 128308 first hour of traffic to today, resulted just from submitting my feed torepparttar 128309 list of directories I compiled from many sources and studied. Some bring great free traffic to new feeds, some are better for once your feed has matured.

You can often get better placement in feed directories and in Yahoo’s RSS Directory than you could from your results in a regular search engine, and sometimes, inclusion is instant.

Reason #2: It’s a hands-off way to update your audience

What if you could run your newsletter withoutrepparttar 128310 hassles of maintaining your list, removing bounced addresses, finding new subscribers, formattingrepparttar 128311 content you find, altering your content to keep from being blacklisted, and after all that, wondering if allrepparttar 128312 various blockers mistakenly kept your message from getting through?

If that sounds like heaven, you can be one ofrepparttar 128313 angels as soon as an hour from now.

When you supplement your current newsletter with more frequent updates via feed, you will be able to push out updates to subscribers to your news channel or feed more frequently and more efficiently.
