The On Site RSS Feed - The Output Side of RSS Feeds - You can use...
(Page 3 of 3 )
You can use various tools, including some free online tools, to build a feed for your site. This tends to be a time consuming, basically manual process. And would need to be partially redone whenever you update. (You can search Google for free RSS feed builders).
One reason many people have begun using blogging platforms such as WordPress as their site builder of choice is because the RSS feeds are automatically constructed and can be pinged each time a post is made. A blogging platform is basically a CMS (Content Management System) and with the variety of templates available - and a little ingenuity and a few plugins - can be an excellent option for site building. And an RSS feed is an integral part of the package.
Whatever type of site you build, an RSS feed is a very significant asset. While it may be difficult or too time-consuming to add an RSS feed to older sites (at least until a good tool is available), carefully consider your site building choices from now on and make sure your choice allows for a live, updating on site RSS feed. You need the edge to compete - and in some cases, just to stay even.
