Way to Blogging - 05


As I gave you list of Sri lankan blog syndicates and  list of international blog  syndicates, some of my readers have ask me how to syndicate the feed some of them even did not know what is a feed. Therefore today my main concern about the feeds.

What is a feed........?

Feed is a continuously updating site of your web site. There, all your are updating is shown. There are several types of feeds like RSS, Atom ..etc. normally all the blog platforms gives you these type of feed but the different is the URL of the feed.Here I'll give you the URL of blogger and word press feeds

Blogger

RSS - http://your-domain.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss

eg- if your blog URL is http://blogtricksplusdragonhunter95.blogspot.com your RSS will be like this                                                                                                                                                     http://blogtricksplusdragonhunter95.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss

What is the importance of having a feed...........?

As a blogger I recommend all of you to have a feed on your site some templates gives direct like to the feed of the site. It is the main concern of syndicator as they only concern about what you have update by a feed reader as it is impossible for syndicators to check all his web sites for updates. Also others can simply subscribe to your site with out giving their email to you. There are some more importance like anti spam effect ...

Therefore take a minute and add add a one of feed to your site. If you are interest in more advance features you can use.
eg- If you writing in multiple language you can have several feeds and syndicates to different syndicates like mix, language 1 only, language2 only

also if you are writing about  several topics you can add to different types of syndicates by having several topic specific syndicate URLs.

So, at last if you have any problem please add here or contact me.
