Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
First, you want visitors to your site to know they
can get updated info through a feed ... that 'keeps
them coming back' because they see the new content
listed in your feed.
To notify site visitors, you need an XML logo linked
to the feed -- I recommend putting this on every page,
though some folks only put it on their homepage.
Visitors may arrive on any page through a search-engine,
and never see the home page.
Also, add a relative link in the page header, like:
<LINK REL="alternate" TITLE="Shared RSS" HREF="//example.com/feeds/Computers/Data_Formats/Markup_Languages/XML/rss.xml" TYPE="application/rss+xml">
(replace < with the less-than sign of course)
Browsers like Firefox will put a little RSS icon at
the bottom of the window, where users can use a single
click to add it as a 'Live Bookmark' which is like a
titles-only RSS viewer in your bookmarks.
Once you have your own house in order, go to your
favorite search engine and type in 'rss directory'
to find the dozens of on-line directories of RSS
feeds, and submit yours.
