We've just launched a news channel on our site. I've been submitting to all the social media sites and so far this have been going steadily.

We have an RSS feed available.

I have submitted it to several directories for feeds, but I was wondering whether anyone had any more advanced tips as how I can use the RSS feed for SEO purposes?

Here's a very recent thread on the same topic: RSS feed - Seo Benefit? [webmasterworld.com]

As mentioned there, if your feed is syndicated on another site you could benefit from the links.

you can use them for on-page SEO as well if they fit with other pages of your site.

if you've got a feed of upcoming events, for example, and other pages that describe the actual venues, then you can put the RSS feed for that venue's events on the same page. it keeps an otherwise static page fresh and constantly updating which is supposed to be good for SEO.

londrum,
In regards to >>"it keeps an otherwise static page fresh and constantly updating,"<< with the various website pages on a domain that show the exact same RSS feed output, do you have to be concerned about any duplicate content issues?

This question [google.com] comes up from time to time...
Duplicate content penalties don't work that way.

One thing I have found useful when managing feed distribution is working through the list of ping.fm connected services.

So for each major site I create a unique ping.fm account and setup all the social media accounts that support RSS.

Depending on the site sometimes the wordpress comment feed is more valuable for getting traffic rather than the content feed.

Worth trying out

enclaveinc: can you tell me how is this exactly working?
I know what RSS means but I have no idea how can it help with SEO; Unfortunately I don't even know how this whole stuff work on ping.fm (maybe I am too dumb) - if a new entry appears in my feed it will be automatically sent to all of those social media sites and will be published under my username?

Thanks in advance, regards.
