A to Z about RSS
Improve your Search Engine Rankings
RSS has been documented to bring a great impact on the traditional search
engine rankings. Even sites supposedly with low traffic are pushed to first-page
sites positions for their key search engine keywords and phrases after switching
over to RSS feeds. This is due to the fact that RSS feeds increases the number
of inbound links to the site, the specific RSS feed format, and tight RSS feed
focus and RSS-specific search engine strategies. These provide the search
engines with strong and focused content streams from publisher’s website. RSS
publishers get more attention by search engines and directories since RSS
contents are still scarce.
