I'm trying to get a blog of mine some publicity, and I noticed on the Honda blog (snip) that they have a number of RSS links to choose from. If you scroll down to where it says RSS Links, there's a few nice little buttons, namely My Yahoo!, Newsgator, Rojo, Feedlounge, Bloglines etc.

Could somebody explain to me what exactly these are all about, and how I can go about doing the same for my blog?

I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks.

The purpose of those links is to have users subscribe through their normal reader.

So if you were to click the my yahoo link it then would add the feed to your "my yahoo" page.

One way of doing it is to copy the images to your server, and replace their feed url with yours on the adding strings:

http: //add.my.yahoo.com/rss?url=http://www.example.com/feed.xml

Hi,

Let me explain this a little futher, a rss file is like a small database.... users can not understand if they look at the file code.

So you need a frontend(reader) to read the data of these files. The beauty of the RSS is you can use any RSS reader to read these files.

My Yahoo!, Newsgator, Rojo, Feedlounge, Bloglines are the readers by the respective companies.

So when you click on the My Yahoo button, you will be able to read the data from the linked RSS file from your My Yahoo page.

The story is same for the other nice little buttons that you see of the forum...

Hope this helps,
Jaunty Edward
