One of the most effective ways to improve traffic to your blog: is to distribute your content as a RSS feed. When you create a feed for your blog – a simple, one-time process anyone can do – you triple its effectiveness and desirability.
What's a RSS?
RSS (most commonly expanded as Really Simple Syndication) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS
Ideally, you want people to depend on your regular posts as a useful and enjoyable part of their daily routine. One of the strongest tips I can give you: Think of them reading your posts when you write, like a newspaper sent to them digital to their email box.
Your reader wants...
Fast, easily read content that is punchy and to the point. You have only a few seconds to really capture his attention before he skips over you and moves on to the next item in his RSS feed reader. Think of this – and you’ll be less inclined to ramble, go off on tangents – or skip writing posts for days at a time altogether.
If you’ve forgotten how to create an RSS feed, or never bothered to learn – now is the time!
Below is a Video Tutorial of How to Set Up a RSS Feed.
Happy RSS feeding,
