How to Create an RSS Feed

Creating an RSS feed is one of the easiest and most popular things you can do for your Blog, to increase traffic and gain subscribers to the content and daily posts of your Blog. An RSS feed can increase your traffic and maybe earnings by double. Simple to create, easy to submit, feeds are one of the most powerful things you can do to make your blog or website more popular.

A few years ago, RSS feeds were only available for blogs. With the huge increase and demand for feeds, something had to be done. You can now create a feed for any website, simple and free. Dapper, is one website that will help you create a feed for your website, this can then be made into a widget and spread and be downloaded by anyone worldwide. Feedburner is probably one of worlds best known feed burning sites, now owned by Google. Feedburner is very easy to use and you also get the advantage of having some great free extras like Feedburner stats pro. This is where you have the opportunity to track your visitors movement in your feed, what they were looming at and what they found most popular or useful. This can be helpful where as you can build more posts about this subject as you know people are finding it useful.

When you have created your RSS feed, you need to submit it to the hungry RSS feed submission websites. Some of the most popular are, Millionrss and SubmitmyRSS, these are high up on the Google rankings. Another reason to submit your feed is that top search engines like Google and Yahoo will use your feed as a way of seeing when your site has been updated, this is called Pinging and many sites let you do this like Pingomatic. Pingomatic will tell lots of other search engines that your blog has been updated, this will help your search engines rankings, as the most active blogs climb higher and stay higher.

There are plenty of articles about how to avoid bad SEOs, so I wasn’t too surprised when I started my research to see how many articles have been written about avoiding bad clients. Many were…eloquent, to say the least. They reminded me a little bit of a particularly bad boss I had once. He possessed three nasty qualities: first, everything was a crisis and had to be done immediately; second, he refused to use a computer or even a typewriter (so I had to print out his email and get handwritten replies from him); and third, his handwriting required about a month to learn how to read with any accuracy.

I mention this because clients are short-term bosses. If your client wants you to work under conditions you wouldn’t take from a boss, you shouldn’t be working with that client. Clients are not spouses; you should not take them on hoping that they’ll change (you shouldn’t do that with a spouse either, of course, but that’s a different article). If you turn down a client because it isn’t working, or it isn’t going to work, you end up saving both you and the client a lot of pain and misspent energy and resources.

As with prospective employers or romantic partners, turning a client down doesn’t mean that the client or you are bad, it just means that you aren’t a good match for each other. For example, if you can’t help a business reach its SEO goals for the amount of money they can afford to spend, you should turn them away, and if possible point them to a colleague who can. This can happen for businesses with a highly local clientele. A very small regional real estate company, for example, might or might not get enough traffic from an SEO campaign to justify its expense.
It’s not always that simple though. You might run across clients with attitudes which make your job more difficult. And I’ll start covering these dangerous characters in the next section.

Few SEO Techniques

Search engine optimization or SEO is the hottest way to drive targeted traffic to your website. Maximizing the benefits of a well optimized website will yield lots of earnings for the marketer. However, optimizing your site might cost you thousands of dollars if you are not skilled in this area.

But to tell you the truth, you can essentially get information on low cost SEO anywhere in the Internet. But only several really show you how to work out an affordable search engine optimization endeavor. And those few that really inform include this article.

1. Link exchanges

one cheap SEO method that can get you best results is through link exchanges or linking to and from other web sites. Depending on the websites that you would like to exchange links with, this tool could even cost you nothing at all. Contact the author or owner of the web site you want to have a link exchange with. You will be surprised with the eventual spiking up of your page ranking using this means of getting your website optimized.

2. Write or acquire key word rich articles

Writing truly informative and keyword-rich articles is one surefire way to make your Internet business more visible than ever. It's either you write your own articles or you get them from article directories that allow you to post these articles on your website as long as you keep the resource box or the author's byline in tact. Just don't stuff your articles with keywords that even idiots would get bore of reading them. The readability and freshness of your articles will still be the basis of whether your writers will keep on coming back to your website or not.

3. Catchy Domain Name

what better will make your target visitors remember your website but with a very easy-to-recall domain name. Something sweet and short will prove to be very invaluable. Registering your domain name is not for free. But creativity is.
