    Why Have Feeds? - Creating Feeds for Your Content


    (Page 2 of 4 )


    Sold! Feeds sound like a great thing, and since they appear in the form of small icons they wonít take up too much site space. ButÖhow can you go about getting them on your site?

    Feeds are so popular, theyíre actually becoming part of the standard package. Many bloggers on the Internet use Web sites (with their own text editors) to create blog pages. WordPress and BlogSpot, two popular blog-creation sites, automatically generate feeds, though bloggers have the option of turning this feature off. Flickr, a photo-sharing site, also offers feed creation to its users, as does popular social networking site MySpace.

    Itís extremely simple to place feeds on a Web site to feature content from different sites. Many sites which provide feeds also provide HTML code so that site creators can include feeds for all to see the content. This actually adds content to your own site (for free, and with very little effort), which in turn may help boost traffic.

    But suppose you have a site of your very own, and youíve actually got some great content to offer. What about creating unique feeds on your own site to promote your own content all across the Internet?

    The availability of feeds only benefits sites which have a good amount of often-updated content to offer. This means the site in question already has a great deal of content on site. Those sites which have a great deal of content benefit from using a CMS -- a content management system. Think of this as a database for all the siteís content, a database thatís somewhat separate from the site proper. This system stores the content, allowing users to access what they want to see quickly through a link.

    Itís important to use a CMS, because this actually puts content into a format thatís usable for Web feeds. Itís the beginning of feed creation. Many CMS programs allow you to automatically implement feeds on Web pages, which really simplifies the process. You can also choose to use any number of online Web services, many of which help you implement feeds for free.
