Something to help my News page ?

 9:55 pm on Apr 14, 2011 (gmt 0)

I'm currently using Drupal with the 'views' plugin module to display local news on my site. All the news articles are imported through RSS...and only display a short header amount of the article before people have to actually click on the link. (i believe only around 150 characters are allowed..before clicking on link)

So far, just with that...search engine traffic is increasing.

But i'd like to increase it even more. Any tips ? And is there anyway to legitimately get around the default 150 character limits issues on the RSS feed...so I could have my keyword quality content before people have to click on the link ?

any help is appreciated. Drupal / Views could be outdated for all I know...I've been using it for years. Maybe there's something new & better now.

I guess I should just stick with Drupal / Views ?

RSS alone doesn't do it. You should have a mixture of RSS, Full articles and other content.

Services like Yellowbrix or feedsyndicate could be useful.. they all offer the service.
