Your blog in Hungry For Hits, as well as everyone else’s, has an RSS feed link in the top right corner. But what is that?
RSS means Really Simple Syndication, and it’s commonly called a news feed, or just feed. It’s a super easy way for bloggers to share headlines and stories so that everyone can read them without
having to visit two dozen different web pages everyday.
Bloggers and sites use feeds to get new content out, and surfers can use Feed Readers to collect news from whatever blogs and sites they are following. It works both with the Hungry For Hits blog,
and pretty much any other blog or site that has a RSS feed.
If you open the RSS feed directly in your browser, you would see a lot of programming language mixed with some content that almost makes sense. Why? Well, you’re not supposed to see an RSS feed directly. What you want is a Feed Reader.
Add the RSS feeds from blogs and sites you follow in a Feed Reader. All you do is register on a Feed Reader and set up which feeds you want to read. There are Feed Readers both for browsers, and as desktop applications. Most browsers have a RSS Feed Reader add-on as well. You get a notification when there is new content.
Personally, I recommend the browser readers such as Google Chrome Feed Reader or Firefox Feed Reader, but other popular readers are Feedly and Awasu. RSS feeds also work with auto posting features to other platforms and websites, such as Social Champ.
What does all this mean? Well, having a lot of friends on the social network is fun and great if you are a social person who also likes to make friends. You get notifications when your friend posts a new blog post. But anyone, no matter if you’ve met them or not, can find you and your blog on the social network page and add the RSS feed to a RSS reader, and you won’t know about it.
It’s a really brilliant opportunity for you tog get free advertising on a whole new level! You can search for people with first name, last name, username, but you can also search for interests. So be sure to fill yours in on the Social network page, so you can be easily found!
