RSS feed on my site

10+ Year Member

Msg#: 310 posted 12:17 pm on Jul 22, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have a site about software development. I have heard that RSS feeds can help me in getting higher rankings on the search engines and I can show a lot of news/articles on my site in my Layout. Also, Since these articles are updated regulalry because of New entry in the feed..my site will show refreshed content all days and hence I will improve my rankings in the search engines.

Is it true? If yes, How can I integrate some related to my site through which
1.I can show my pages to be updated daily
2. I can show all these articles/news on my own site in my own content. Ofcourse I would like to give due credit to the RSS source so that can show in "as it is " manner.

Please advice.

You can easily add new content to your site using rss. The news will only update as often as the "donor" site updates it, but new content daily seams reasonable.

The main problem with simply using another sites feeds is they typicaly only allow you to display a short snippet of the news article, then the user needs to click on a link to visit the donor site to read the remainder of the story.

There are however services that allow you to have the entire article on your site. These services are generaly paid services, and can be fairly pricey.

As for actualy using rss. What you need to do is install an rss parser on your site. I can't really go into much detail here because parsers vary greatly depending on the type of information you want to use.

Fow a parser you might want to look around on hotscripts.com
