Syndicating Your Content, The Power of RSS

| October 16, 2008 | 0 Comments

This episode shares the power of RSS and how you can use FeedBurner to really ramp up the sharing, or syndication, of your content. These are some of the FeedBurner tools I shared.

BuzzBoost
Have feed, will travel. BuzzBoost republishes your burned feed’s content as go-anywhere HTML. Want to promote your blog on another site you manage? BuzzBoost gives you a snippet of JavaScript you can paste into your page templates.

Email Subscriptions
Give your biggest fans another way to keep up with your blog or podcast feed by placing an email subscription form on your site.

Chicklet Chooser
Promote your FeedBurner feed directly on your website! Place HTML that Chicklet Chooser automatically generates for you in your site templates to help users easily subscribe to your feed.

BrowserFriendly
Make it easy for potential subscribers to preview and subscribe to your text or podcast feed. Applies clean visual formatting to the eyesore of raw feed XML for much improved readability in all modern web browsers.

SmartCast
Makes podcasting easy in feeds that normally cannot support it. Link to MP3s, videos, images, and other digital media in your site content and SmartCast creates enclosures for them automatically. Optionally adds elements required for a richer, more detailed listing in iTunes Podcast Directory and sites using Yahoo Media RSS.

SmartFeed
Reach the widest possible audience while publishing a single feed on your blog or site. Translates your feed on-the-fly into a format (RSS or Atom) compatible with your visitors’ feed reader application.

FeedFlare™
Give your subscribers easy ways to email, tag, share, and act on the content you publish by including as many or few of the services listed below. FeedFlare™ places a simple footer at the bottom of each content item, helping you to distribute, inform and create a community around your content.
Allowing you to share on digg, facebook, and delicious.

Amazon ID Burner
Save time when linking to Amazon.com. This service conveniently auto-inserts your Associates ID into any links to Amazon.com catalog items it finds in your feed content items.

Configure Ads
Activate FeedBurner Ad Network and/or Google AdSense for Content and then configure how you want ads to appear in your content.

Photo Splicer
Merge two views of your online world! Splice your blog feed with your photo feed. Photos in your Flickr, Buzznet, or Webshots account will be merged in with your original source feed entries, most recent first.

About the Author ()

Debra Simpson began her career in publishing in 1990 as the publisher of The Business Resource (formerly known as Networks), a small business newspaper in San Diego County. In 1995, McGraw-Hill lured her away to the world of multimedia and Web publishing, and recognized Debra as the Author of the Year in Multimedia Development in 1996. Thus began Debra’s adventure in digital media development. She subsequently spent four years programming McGraw Hill’s vast collection of Websites. When McGraw Hill closed their Carlsbad office, Debra re-entered the entrepreneurial realm, developing and implementing Web 2.0 Internet marketing strategies for the small business community. Debra's been podcasting North San Diego Business since November 2008, interviewing small business owners in North San Diego County.
