Obtaining Internet traffic is overwhelming and difficult at times, when you aren’t educated on the tricks and techniques.
In this post, we’ll be looking at a cheeky technique that will boost your traffic.
RSS feeds. They are often under-played and under-rated. Perhaps you’ve never heard of RSS, perhaps you think you know, perhaps not. Basically, it stands for Really Simple Syndication and its literally making a feed of content. Imagine Facebook lists, one for your friends, one for your family, one for your work mates – will RSS is the same but for a given website, podcast or business. People will find a RSS feed on a website, subscribe to it, and then when new posts are uploaded, they get notified automatically! Simple indeed. And clever too.
How can I get Internet Traffic to my site from a RSS Feed?
Well firstly, lets look at how to integrate it. That may help you understand how it will help traffic.
Follow these easy steps to integrate a RSS feed into your site.
1. Firstly, create a feed for your static website using Feedity.com
2. Then, post the feed URL (from Feedity) to the feed aggregator site Feedagg.com
You will only have to use the Feedity facility if you have a static web-page. If you have a blog, you can go straight to step 2.
Simply take the RSS feed URL using the little orange radar-looking button from your blog.
And how does RSS SEO work?
1. Google and RSS are bff’s! Since most major spam sites won’t use RSS, Google knows that a site with an RSS is more likely to be real! Therefore, Google will drive traffic to your site because it thinks (and rightly so…) you are a decent site. It simply looks natural.
2. Google loves blogs too! And, since blogs have RSS feeds built in, the two go together. Google will start to think you are a blog, even if you aren’t, when you are using RSS feeds.
How can I utilise this ?
Since RSS feeds aren’t considered as a popular method for SEO, you can utilise it cleverly. Simply set-up a network of a few blogs and then use aggregators, such as Feedagg, to gain new links each time you make a post to your blog. Clever eh?
Sure, it may be time consuming, but it’s free – but it does keep Google up to date with your site.
We aren’t joking, give it a try and watch it work!
