Did you know you can create
RSS news feeds to improve your website marketing and
search engine optimisation, and creating an RSS feed is easier than you may think.
What is an RSS news feed?
You have probably seen ticker-tape type messages on TV news channels where messages of breaking news stories scroll along the bottom of your screen, or for sports programs, the latest football results. These are RSS feeds.
Digital signage (or advertising) display screens can be seen in shopping malls, restaurants, hospital waiting areas, airports and other public areas, and these often have RSS news feeds, whether that be national, local or company news items.
Improve your website for marketing and SEO
However, there are advantages to using an RSS feed and marketing and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is one of them.
For marketing purposes, you can display an RSS feed on your website to keep visitors updated with your news and encourage sales.
For SEO, in order to get Google and other search engines to take notice of your website, you are expected to allow visitors to engage with you using social media and to allow them to optionally follow you so you can keep them up to date with your news and services.
An RSS feed is simply a list of items of news. All the main news websites, such as BBC,
CNN or Sky, have a list of the main news items of the day.
Your organisation will have news about your products or services. An example is a cake shop your news item could be about special themed cakes:
News item title: An anniversary cake for the one you love
Description: Order now to avoid disappointment and we'll give you a free red rose and anniversary card
Website page: http://www.mycakeshop.com/anniversary.html (example only)
Date: 30 January
