Now you are aware how to write a RSS Feed for your site. If you don't know how to prepare RSS feed file then please go through RSS Feed Formats.

Uploading RSS Feed:

Here are simple steps to put your RSS Feed on the web.

  1. First decide which version of RSS Feed you are going to use for your site. I would recommen to use latest version available.

  2. Create your RSS Feed in a text file with extension either .xml or .rdf. Upload this file on your web server.

  3. You should validate your your RSS Feed before making it live. Check next chapter on RSS Feed Validation.

  4. Create a link on your Web Pages for the RSS Feed File. You will use a small yellow button for the link that says either RSS Feed or XML Feed.

That's it, Now your RSS Feed is online and people can start using it. But there are ways to prompote your RSS Feed so that more number of people should use your RSS Feed.

Promote Your RSS Feed:

Keeping up-to-date Feed:

As we have explained earlier, RSS Feed makes sense for the site who are changing thier content very frequently. Like any news or bloggig sites.

So now you have gotten RSS feed buttons from Google, Yahoo, and MSN. Now you must make sure that you update your content frequently and that your RSS feed is constantly available.
