As a savvy productivity driven small business Internet marketer, there are certain tips that will help you easily get to information that will help you in your online marketing.Â Today’s tip has to do with an a neat RSS Viewer.
RSS Explained for the Novice Small Business Internet Marketer
Before we get into the nitty gritty, RSS, which is the acronym for Really Simple Syndication, is a web format used to publish frequently updated online content, such as on a blog (blog posts/entries), audio and video in a standardized format.Â An RSS document is called a feed (or web feed), which includes data that summarizes the publishing information and allows you to see full or summarized versions of text, audio or video on a blog.
Web feeds benefit you as a small business online publisher by allowing you to syndicate content automatically.Â Â RSS benefits the readers who subscribe to your timely updates, and other updates they subscribe to, in one central location that is easy to reference.Â This is great because your readers won’t need to remember your website link (url) – especially if it’s not a memorable one.
There are many RSS Viewers or Readers that allow you – and your readers – to see all the content subscribed to.Â Â One example of a reader is the popular, Google RSS Reader.
Now that we all know what RSS is, let’s talk about the coolest RSS Viewer we, the Secrets to Web Success Team have found.
