As promised, I am posting information on Internet Marketing on Wednesdays.
I am passing on some of the information that I am learning when it comes to building a business online. My own journey to online business building has had more than a couple bumps in the road. I’m hoping that by sharing my lessons with you, it will help you to “miss the bumps” and keep you going “full speed ahead” to progressive online business growth.
I had a link in this post an awesome slide share on how to find the RSS feeds for various different social media sites. However, I did not create this slides share and Google doesn’t want to show the slide-share if it on my site.
One of the most popular features of Internet portals, websites, pages and even emails is a frame that features an organized list of news headlines and periodic updates from other web sources. Really Simple Syndication, formerly “Rich Site Summary” or simply, RSS makes this possible.
Most users visit a lot of websites whose content continually change, such as news sites, community organization or professional association information pages, medical websites, product support pages, and blogs. As Internet surfing became an intrinsic part of business and leisure, it became important to get rid of the very tedious task of repeatedly returning to each website to see updated content.
RSS easily distributes information from different websites to a wider number of Internet users. RSS aggregators are programs that use RSS to source these updates, and then organize those lists of headlines, content and notices for easy reading. It allows computers to automatically retrieve and read the content that users want, then track changes and personalize lists of headlines that interests them.
So, what does all of this information have to do with Internet Marketing?
Now here is the simple part. If you use great tools like Hootsuite, and you are able to find the rss feed from your various and sundry social media marketing platforms, you can effectively create the impression that you are posting “everywhere” at once.
You can also very effectively create back-links to your main website as well as have the ability to support those back links by running each item through the Hootesuite rss aggregator. And that means that your site will rank higher in the search engines!
And, in case you missed the correction for today’s show, here it is again:
Well. Ladies and Gentlemen, I must admit it. I have failed publicly and even catastrophically. In fact, I have done it just now!
I misunderstood the offer made by Elizabeth L. Maness. I am now correcting the blog post.
Ms. Maness is offering a FREE Consultation from her company for YOUR Company.
Here is the link for her offer: http://assistsocialmedia.com/service/social-media-marketing-plan-evaluation/
My sincere apologies to her and to each and every one of you.
There will be those among you who will think that I made this error on purpose.
I can assure you this is not the case. I really dislike the taste of “crow”, however, sometimes you’ve just got to eat it…and carry on smartly.
Let me know if the information was helpful to you. Leave me a comment on the blog. Have a great Wednesday!
