For increased exposure of your feed and terrific SEO benefits, syndicate your feed on your website
So you've taken the smart step to publish an RSS news feed and have told others about it in your email signature, on your Facebook Wall, on your home page with an RSS icon, and in your newsletter. That's a great start. But to really get the SEO benefits from your feed and capture the interest of your site visitors, syndicate it (embed it) on your home page.
It's not difficult and well worth taking the time to do it. Basically, you upload a script to your website folder where your home page resides, and insert a simple "code snippet" on your home page where you want the feed to appear. You get that script and code snippet by going to "Stylize & Promote Feeds" on Enfeedia.
There are a couple of requirements for this to work, namely that your hosting service supports PHP (it's very common) and that your webpage gets processed by the PHP processor provided by your hosting service. There are two ways to cause your PHP code to be processed: (1) Use .php as the extension for your page file name (e.g., index.php), or (2) modify the server .htaccess file to direct php code present in html files to be parsed. Your webmaster will be familiar with these requirements.
Enfeedia also offers considerable flexibility in how your feed appears on your webpage. When you fetch your code snippet, you will be presented a number of presentation options together with instructions.
