Continuing on from the previous post on promotion with RSS where we discussed on site promotion. In the second installment you will find out about promoting your RSS feed with some off site techniques.
Submit to RSS directories
The most obvious and popular off site RSS promotion method is to submit your RSS feed to directories. There are many specialist directories that accept only RSS feeds and lucky for you a list of RSS directories sorted by pagerank is maintained here.
When you submit your feed to a directory you are benefiting a number of ways. Firstly your feed will be visible to visitors who search such directories, your feed may even be featured if there is a section for newly submitted feeds or recently updated feeds.
The second benefit is a link to your feed or possibly even your site. The reason this will be beneficial to you is that as well as bringing traffic to your site it will also help your site with the search engines. Many search engines class links to your site, particularly from authority or established sites as a positive vote.
