The Fast Changing World of RSS

Blogs and RSS Feeds No Comments »

I am amazed at how fast the technology and services for RSS feeds and blogs are changing!

In the member’s area we have a directory with all the newly tested software, services and tactics on:

– RSS creation,
– RSS delivery,
– RSS submission, and
– RSS and website strategies.

It’s all I can do to refresh and keep that area up to date!

For instance, the submissions page just had a shake down. No longer do our customers need to spend hours submitting their RSS feed urls to directories by hand.

We’ve provided software (selling elsewhere for $27-$47) that handles all your RSS feed submissions for you.

During the shake-down of the manual submissions, a few website directories were found to be be moving really quickly in the RSS field. One was *omited*.com*.

If already have a feed (whether user defined or as the result of blogging) I strongly suggest you submit it there!

I’ll be there in about an hour submitting our subscriber’s feeds as a courtesy – with their permission of course.

I’ll see you there and at the top of the search engines!

P.S. How about you? Are you receiving updates as they happen in the RSS world or are you gleaning information from stale web pages that haven’t been updated in a while?

* 2007 edit: The dot.com mentioned above is no longer in service. Shortly after launch it jumped 2 google page ranks and ran for a few years with many users in the industry raving about it!

Who’s Teaching What About RSS?

Time is a precious commodity and none of us has hours to wile away.

The market is growing saturated with RSS Feed reports at varying prices from a variety of sources. Some are even free! I try to get my head into each one as they’re published to be certain that I don’t miss a trick in helping you to the ultimate level of success with your RSS promotions. Seldom do I find anything of interest or techniques that are ‘proven’.

Ask yourself, before you slap down your hard earned dollars or forfeit hours of your time on any information the following:

WHO has written the report I’m planning on buying? Can they prove SUCCESS using their own advice? Is the information UP TO DATE?

And, MOST importantly…

Are they accessible to their purchasers?

If you’re wondering about The Stampede Secret:

WHO: One of the world’s best copywriters wrote the material (Joe Vitale), teamed with an ex-software trainer acclaimed for turning difficult to understand geek-speak into digestible English.

PROVEN TACTICS: Purchasers of The Stampede Secret have access to a third party verifiable case study of a
readership increase of 629% solely attributable to RSS Feed inclusion on an old and lagging website.

Not to mention the glowing testimonials received from other professional marketers.

CURRENT INFO: Many of the recently launched products (most selling at a much lower rates than The Stampede Secret and only one that I know of selling higher as it’s a home study kit), still walk their users through the long, hard way of creating an RSS Feed. On the other hand, we’ve had our subscribers using the fast and easy method, via software that was still in beta (but was rigorously tested) for the past two years. Further, our subscribers always receive the most current news in the industry through the member’s area and by email updates.

ACCESS: We support you. Many subscribers write personal emails asking for assistance with their websites, their feeds, or even just to have an extra set of eyes to proof their text. I’ve got an email box full of people’s notes (that I often visit for a little emotional boost) thanking Joe and I for the ‘extra’ service, and another email box full of people saying how well their RSS Feed has worked for them by following our advice.

IN CONCLUSION:

Please value your own time – every hour you waste doing something the wrong way or the long way, is time that could have been spent earning you traffic and income. Information gleaned at a discount or for free is not always a ‘deal’. You want to take advice and learn from people who have had success (and can prove it) using the information provided.

I don’t think I need to ‘sell’ you on the fact that if you have a website, you need an RSS Feed – currrent market
interest is doing a fine job of convincing you! But I do urge you to be careful where you glean your information and how you spend your hard earned dollars and time-crunched days.

To Your Success!

“Tim,

I’ve also been amazed at how much having a blog can do for your traffic, and also just getting in the search engines to start with.

I recently started 2 blogs on new sites I couldn’t seem to get indexed. I then submitted it to about 20 blog search engines. 3 or 4 days later, they were in both Yahoo and Google. And both sites had PR by the end of the month as well. Now the traffic has started to increase.

That got me so excited that I bought Joe Vitale and Laura Childs ebook this weekend (The Stampede Secret), and my head is just spinning with all the extra tips they give. Their book is highly recommended! Here is the URL without any affiliate link, just so you know that this is a real recommendation and not a pitch: http://www.stampedesecret.com/

After seeing how powerful a blog can be, I would recommend one to anyone who isn’t getting enough traffic to their site, or having trouble getting their site indexed. (That should cover just about everyone. 🙂

Hi Linda,

Yes, Stampede Secret is the first, and so far, the best book I’ve read on the subject.

Not only that, but Laura Childs has some terrific “niche” products that she has promoted using the very techniques she talks about in her book.

Check them out here:

One thing I always like to know before I take advice from anyone is, “has this person actually used this technique to market a *real* product?”

Of course this is the case with Laura. I can attest to the effectiveness of her approach as I have also had success with this. You will even find my testimonial on http://www.stampedesecret.com (something I rarely do:-)

Warmly,

Tim Erway”
