RSS Feeds and How to Make Search Engines Fall in Love
with your Web Site
As most Internet marketers know, writing articles can be
very beneficiary to get more visitors to their web site.
What not all of you might know, are the benefits of using
other peoples articles to improve your search engine ranking.
So let’s see find out how that works.
This article shows you a few steps to implement RSS Feeds
on your web page, using these steps the right way will not
only improve your web sites content, it will also make the
search engines want to come back over and over again! Since
the search engines just love fresh content, why not provide
it to them?
What are RSS Feeds?
RSS according to most people stands for either, Rich Site
Summary or Really Simple Syndication. It is a part of the
internet meta language XML. These days it is used mostly
to syndicate articles. When you create RSS Feeds they can
be used by other web sites to promote them in their web
#1 Reason to use RSS Feeds on your web site.
The best, and by far the best reason to use RSS Feeds on
your web site is the fact that it makes the chosen content
alive. What I mean is, you can choose several feeds on any
subject you need, choose the amount of articles you want
to display on your web site, and it gets automatically
updated when someone submits a new article.
Different Ways to Implement RSS Feeds.
There are a few options available when you want to
implement an RSS Feed on your website. It would either
be HTML, Java or php. The only correct way to implement
it, as far as I know, is with php. With HTML the content
can be read by the search engines but since HTML is static
it will not be updated automatically. For sure you don’t
want to do this by hand every single day!!
Using Java script would mean that the article content
does get updated, the only downside with this would be…
The search engines won’t be able to read the article
content, this wouldn’t do you any good would it. So php
it has to be, when putting an RSS Feed on your web site
with php, it does get updated every time a new article
is submitted and it will be read by the search engines.
THAT’S WHAT I CALL A WIN/WIN SITUATION!!
How to use php on your web site.
Ok, we are clear about the main reason why to use php.
I can almost hear some people say, I have no idea how
to do this!! Neither did I.. It’s easy let’s just start
at the beginning.
1. You will need your own domain with a host which does
support php. You can check the availability through your
control panel provided by your hosting company. Otherwise
just ask your hosting provider.
2. Once you’ve got your web site on a host which supports
php you will have a bit of work to do. The page where you
want to display the RSS Feeds needs to be changed from
for example: “http://www.mydomain.com/index.html” to
3. When you have several pages on your web site and
some of them link back to your home page, make sure
that from now on you let them link back to the new
index.php instead of index.html.
4. The hardest part is done!! Now you need a way to
create rss feeds. A perfect web site which will write
a piece of code for you is http://www.feeddigest.com
Here you can just fill in which feed you would like
to use and it will be written in php coding within
seconds. To find great feeds I would suggest some of
the following links.
5. Copy and paste the piece of code created by
www.feeddigest.com wherever you want the articles
to appear on to your web page. I would suggest to use
a single table just for these articles. If you don’t
know how to do this, just check the source of my
homepage and search for php. You will find it
fitted in a table.
You have improved your web site content which will
certainly be visited more often by every search engine.
