Why You Need Your Own News Feed
If you have or want a following for your business, organization, or simply your personal endeavors, an RSS news feed is just the ticket. If SEO for your website is important to you, an RSS feed is a powerful tool.
What's an RSS news feed? It's a powerful yet simple way to put your stream of messages "out there" without you sending email. And that makes it easy for one to learn what's new without meandering all through your website.
Post your messages whenever you want, as often as you want, and your audience reads them on your feed at their convenience. They can even choose to register for automatically delivered email alerts when items are posted on the feed.
Choose To Use Your News — Or Lose
By publishing messages on a continuing basis, you establish yourself as an authority on your topic. RSS news feeds are excellent for maintaining customer loyalty. Keep them informed on a regular basis. Don't let them forget about you!
Fresh content posted on your feed that's syndicated on your website improves the search engine results placement of your site.
An RSS news feed is simpler than email and more valued by your email-bombarded audience!
What is "news"? It's any message or article you want. You can even embed a photo or video into your news item, and add text links, a Google search tool, and a PayPal buy-now button.
No List To Maintain Will Keep You Sane
If you've ever had to maintain an email list, and if you've ever had to suffer receiving all those "undeliverable mail" messsages, then you will appreciate this: By publishing an RSS news feed, you no longer need to send your audience email and therefore don't need to maintain an email list. Those who wish to easily stay up-to-date about your news without having to peruse your site can register for automatic mail alerts. Did you know that many email service providers impose limits on sending email, for example, the number of recipients for a single email, the number of email recipients per hour or day or month ... with the risk of having your email account temporarily shut down if a limit is exceeded? Not a problem with Enfeedia's feed-driven email.
You'll Be The Rage With Your Own NewsPage
When you publish your RSS news feed with Enfeedia, we create a NewsPage -- a standalone website hosted at Enfeedia -- for you so your audience doesn't even have to know anything about news feeds — and some of you might not even need a website. Because, with a premium membership, you can customize your NewsPage with information about your endeavor, including pictures and videos. Combined with regular postings on your feed, you will find your NewsPage showing up in search results giving your endeavor more exposure -- with no additional work on your part. By the way, consider the benefits of having links you create from your Enfeedia-hosted NewsPage to your website regaring SEO.
You'll Publish With Ease! (We Know That'll Please.)
If you know how to write and send email, you can easily publish your own RSS news feed using Enfeedia.
What could be easier: Sign in and enter your news item title and article into an online form and submit it; within seconds, it's published online and subscribers (optionally) get an alert.
By adding an Enfeedia-supplied code snippet and using an Enfeedia-supplied script, you can syndicate your RSS news feed items — one or many — on your website. And now you can syndicate your feed on your website without using that script, what we call Super Simple Syndication.
Syndication just means embedding an RSS feed directly on one's site. Yes, you can syndicate your own feed on your own site. We call this syndication feature NewsOnSite, and the process of posting items onto your site ShootOnSite.
With self-syndication, when you publish items on your feed, you are automatically publishing those items on your website at the same time without lifting a finger. And that means search engines index your news feed content with the rest of your webpage!
Step Up Your Site's SEO Score with Super Simple Syndication
Super Simple Syndication improves on Original Syndication (what we've offered from the beginning) by eliminating the need to upload the shootOnSite script to your website. Because that script is a sizeable amount of PHP code, some of you or your webmasters may have been reluctant to upload that code to your website, concerned about side effects or unexpected consequences to your site operation.
Now, you can forget all about that script, and just have Enfeedia do the syndication for you. Here's how: The snippet sends a few paramaters, like your Enfeedia account name and feed name, over to Enfeedia. Enfeedia receives those paramaters and then uses its internal shootOnSite script to transform the cryptic feed file into HTML code to provide the feed in human-readable form. That HTML code is returned to your website where it replaces the code snippet, causing the feed to appear on your webpage just as if were hard coded on your site. And seen by search engine spiders. Every time your page is loaded, that process occurs, so the feed that is presented is assured to be current.
To get your Super Simple Syndication code snippet, go to the Promote section of Enfeedia and follow the on-screen instructions.
Super Simple Syndication is available to premium membership levels (Publisher, Pubisher-PRO and Enterprise).
