Before we talked about feeds, we have to discuss RSS feed firstly. RSS is a family web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works, such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video on a standardized format (Wikipedia). An RSS document which is called a feed, web feed or channel contains full of summarized text, and metadata—the publishing date and authorship.
RSS feeds can make the publisher’s information/articles syndicate content automatically. A standardized XML file format allows the information to be published once and viewed by many different programs. Also, the RSS feeds can benefit readers who would like to subscribe the updates and know the latest information from their favorite website or to aggregate feeds from various websites into one.
The RSS feeds can also be used by software and be called RSS reader, feed reader, or aggregator. Actually, these can be applied as web-based, desktop-based, or mobile-device-based. The user can subscribe to a feed by entering into the feed’s URL or by clicking a feed icon in a web browser that initiates the subscription process. The RSS reader check the user’s subscribed feeds regularly for new work, downloads the updates, and offers an interface for the users to monitor and read the feeds. RSS feeds provide an opportunity for users to avoid manually inspecting all of the websites they are interested in, and instead subscribe to websites such that the new content that filled into the browsers can become available.
As we discussed above, the RSS feeds can bring a lot of benefits for the users. Thus, for the writers and authors, the problem is how they can automatically submit the blogs/new information—the RSS feeds to the blog directories or search engine submission sites. Because the standard of success of a website is not about the number of visiting each day, the standard of success is how many users subscribe the website. We suggest you a RSS feed submission tool, the KSnipe Submitter. It can automatically submit the RSS feeds to various website.
Moreover, what should we do after we successfully submit the RSS feeds to the websites? For some websites, they get the RSS feeds icon on the website and obvious to see, such as Googel Reader. By using these, people can immediately find the whether the RSS subscription increase or not. Through the online tool, people don’t need to manually open the website one to one to check the updated information.
Furthermore, most of the blog platforms have the RSS feeds. The readers can enter the website in the reading tools and subscribe the articles. It’s easy for the readers to do, but it is difficult for the webmaster to analyze. Thus, the webmaster may need to use the third party to organize the RSS feed, such as Feedsky and Feedburner.
