WordPress RSS Syndication

Not wanting to offend anyone but there are still quite a lot of new bloggers out there or ‘would be’ bloggers who are struggling with the language of blogging, all those new words – so for them – RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”.

RSS is such a standard feature now that bloggers just expect it, its no longer a special feature, but a standard feature and if you don’t have it available for your readers you’re really missing out. Plus you’ll come across as unprofessional. The language that RSS is written to the web server in is XML. Short for ‘Extensible Markup Language’.

RSS is just a simple straight forward way of ensuring of automatically updating your readers with the “What’s Fresh & Innovative” posts on your blog.

The less you can share your words without putting readers to too much effort, the better for your content and the better you will be ‘communicating’ with your audience. By using these tools, these “feed readers” (enabling your readers to have your feed automatically downloaded) you’re making it very easy for them to be kept up to pace with what’s happening on your site.

Naturally for your readers to stay properly up to date with your content they will need to actually subscribe to your RSS feed. The good news is that WordPress is a platform that allow RSS feeds to be auto-discovered by the feed readers.

WordPress fortunately supplies RSS feeds in a number of formats and because the feeds are built right into the WordPress software, you don’t even need to do anything to see that your fans are provided with RSS feeds of your content.

There are a number of good RSS Feed Readers – probably the ‘Google Reader’ would be the most popular and best known of all, followed and/or joined by the following:

Omega Reader
NewsGator Online Services
Blog Navigator
Awasu Personal Edition

Amongst others.
