Money with RSS Feeds
Making money with RSS Feeds
Copyright 2005 Sandra Stammberger
First it was banner ads, then Google AdSense and now, the latest
way to make money on your web site could very well be RSS feeds.
Say what? I said: RSS is hot and you should be using it to drive
eyeballs to your site. Here's how it works:
Depending upon who you ask, RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication"
or "Rich Site Summary". Regardless of what you call it, RSS is a
way to automatically publish (syndicate) someone else's content
on your web site. Now don't worry, that's not the same as stealing
someone else's content. There is nothing illegal about using RSS
feeds. In fact, the publisher of the content wants you to have it
show up on your site and that's why he or she makes it available
as an RSS feed to begin with.
So what's in it for all parties concerned?
Using RSS is a win-win for both the publisher of the content,
who gets their name out to potentially millions of sites and you,
the web site owner who is pulling the content onto your site.
Content, by the way, means anything that a publisher decides it
means. Typical content includes news headlines, new product update
notices, blog summaries and lots of other stuff. It's the "content"
portion of the equation that's good news for you.

One of the best features of hosting RSS feeds is that it gives your
site an endless source of freshly updated and relevant content.
This content acts as natural search engine spider bait which they
will fill their little tummies on and come back for more every day.
Their appetite for fresh content keep your rankings up.
Sticky Loyalty isn't a new Ben & Jerry's flavor, but it should
be the goal of any serious webmaster who wants to create a web site
that visitors return to over and over again. The use of carefully
selected RSS feeds can make that happen by offering unique content
which can't be found anywhere else.
Now please don't make the mistake of thinking "But they can get
that same content at the publisher's site, why should they come
to mine?". Just build it and they will come! Sorry, I couldn't resist
saying that, but it's true. In addition to the RSS content, which
they surely can get somewhere else, you are going to add your own
sticky loyalty stuff that's all about whatever your site is all
about to begin with. That combination of your own content and the
RSS feed makes visiting you a purely unique experience that can't
be found anywhere else.
You don't have to be a member of the Geek Squad to start showing
RSS feeds on your site. Just visit any of the links below and get
busy using RSS to make mo' money.
