How many people here are actively involved in the syndication of their content or their employers content? What format and model are you using for the syndication?

I started with the rss feed here and was picked up by a couple of noted feeds. It's not burning up the referral counter, but it is certainly making an difference.

I agree....articles are a great way to drive some targeted and quality traffic to your site.

We have deals with a few sites, a few columns, where a colleague and I write weekly articles.

>drive some targeted and quality traffic to your site

Originally the idea with content syndication was to get money for your quality content, thus being a remedy for the core problem all content providers share - not getting paid for their work.
So from what you are saying I gather you gave up on that and just use it for getting traffic?

Actually, we never intended on getting paid for the articles.......we use them to drive traffic and increase company branding.
