Using Rss To Promote Your Site/ Podcasts

Recommended Posts

G'day everyone

 

I am involved in a comedy project and I have just completed the website (hosted by TCH of course). By the way if you want to know what Aussies (well some of us anyway) find funny check it out www.areyoureadytogrumble.com. (sorry for the shameless self promotion)

 

At the moment we are using word of mouth and I have registered the site with Google. (using the info in this forum - thanks for that). But I want to reach more people and I have been doing some research on RSS.

 

Is there any resources/ site etc that you would recommed to get a good idea on how to use RSS to promote my site?. From what I have read it sounds promising but I can't find anything that details an easy or clear step by step approach.

 

Thanks in advance

Phil

HI Bruce

 

Thanks for the reply. I had already tried Google but since I did my post I was able to find something at

feedburner which at gives a quick start guide. I thought I would post the link here in case someone else finds it useful.

Hello

 

I can only speak for promoting podcasting as I'm still trying to learn about rss for website promotion but a great rss software I found was this Feeder It's a Mac OS system based program just in case there are any maccers who wanted a program for rss.

 

It may be an alternative if you don't get along with what you're using and/or use Mac OS. It creates the script via your description and content and also makes it iTunes music store friendly. You can drag and drop artwork too.

 

I just did my first podcast for a fan site I run and it was accepted by iTunes music store the day after I submitted it. The only thing is to remember to put the right files in the right places. LOL *cough* not like I did with my artwork - had to change it but that was fine - iTunes picked up the right location a few days after via rss.

 

My next challenge this week is doing the next episode and making sure it too is picked up. I'll use this program again and see how it goes.

 

Good luck with your project. :D
