How to Submit Your RSS Feeds

You have probably heard a lot about blogs and RSS feeds. As you know (I hope ), RSS feeds are a way to syndicate your blog content much faster than ever before, allowing readers to view your blogs through their own aggregator software. More readers for you, more traffic to your site, more happiness.

Now, before you can get more happiness, you first have to make sure your RSS feed can be found by readers! But how do you do that? Easily, by submitting your RSS feed to the RSS search engines and directories.

This may sound like a daunting task, but it can actually be quite simple and fast. There are a couple of web sites available that provide a long list of RSS sites where you can submit your feed. However, many of the links provided are broken, out of date, or just plain take too long to go through them all. This is especially the case if you have multiple RSS feeds to submit. Who wants to go through all those web site submit forms over and over?

The fastest way to submit your RSS feeds is using a software tool. An example would be a product called RSS Submit http://www.dummysoftware.com/rsssubmit.html. This is a software tool for Windows PCs which automatically submits your RSS feed to over 60 RSS search engines. There are also various plug-ins available to further increase your RSS power. Defintely worth checking out.
