RSS Syndication is the process of sharing content on a wide range of social networking platforms. These syndicated articles are syndicated to numerous websites via RSS or “Rich Site Summary”. These syndicated articles include a human-readable description and category link in place of an internal URL. There are two types of syndication services available: premium and free. Premium services offer high-quality content with no advertising or banner ads, and are often seen as a legitimate source of information. Free services, which can be found on the Internet, will only share useful content in exchange for a commission from each publication. While these can be effective, it is important to remember that these syndication services should be used in moderation.
RSS is very easy to set up and includes a programmable feed. A feed contains links to different articles and therefore allows RSS readers to easily find the information they want. The format of an RSS feed varies based on the client of the RSS client, but is generally one to two-column text with a leading dot which can be replaced by an internal link.
RSS feeds allow users to read specific details about a website, such as when a new article is published or follow updates to a particular RSS feed. There are also sites which can make available RSS feeds and directories for the creation of RSS feeds.
With regards to creating syndicated content, there are two common sense approaches: the simplest way is to have the RSS service automatically create a post in a newsletter-style email, and the more advanced approach is to have a system that can automatically create the content. Creating the content manually can be complicated and may require special software to generate syndicated content.
The most complex way to syndicate content is to have a system that creates an own RSS feed for the user to syndicate to. This is accomplished by having an RSS reader and creating a series of sub-feeds based on the feed.
Another method for syndicating RSS is by allowing the RSS feed to be syndicated automatically to social bookmarking sites, and other RSS syndication sites. Such sites usually offer good quality content for a low price.
As mentioned above, RSS syndication is useful for two purposes: it provides fresh content for RSS readers, and also provides a way for publishers to distribute their content. In summary, RSS syndication is useful for your business.
