SEO for WordPress: “How I hit page #1 of Google in 27 days!”
Chapter 10 - Boost Your Rankings With RSS Feeds
Do you know what an RSS Feed is? If not, it’s that orange icon you see on most websites. (See image below.) Internet users can subscribe to your website via these RSS Feeds, and have your articles sent to their eReader device or email. If you don’t have an RSS feed installed on your website, you can get one for free at https://feedburner.google.com
Once you have an active feedburner account, you can submit your feed URL to feed directories. You can search Google to find websites that accept RSS feeds, but a few good ones are:
Just look for a button that says “submit feed” on all of these websites. Some feed directories you’ll have to register for, and some other directories will allow you to submit your feed anonymously without creating an account.
After you submit your feed, the title of your articles will become clickable anchor text that points back to your website. (See image below.) That’s why it’s very important that you always title your articles correctly because it’ll always be used as a clickable link which is anchor text.
Need More RSS Feeds?
If you need more RSS feeds, go to www.howismysite.com. Enter in your website's information, and they will create a profile page for you and give you an RSS feed. You can find the RSS feed button on the top right of the page.
Now bookmark this page using all the social bookmarking sites, submit the RSS feed to RSS directories, and use Pingomatic to ping the page and the RSS Feed. If you want to take it to the next level, you’ll notice something that says “Other Resources” at the bottom of the same page. (See Below.)
When you click those links, they’ll create additional profile pages for you. Once again, you want to social bookmark all those pages and look for any RSS feeds. If you see an RSS feed on any of those pages, then submit the RSS feed to feed directories, and ping all those pages usingwww.pingomatic.com
I know a lot of this seems tedious, but if you want to make it to the first page of Google, then you have to step up to the plate and make it happen.
There are only 10 FREE spots on the first page of Google, and depending on your market, you could be competing with millions of other web pages. Only the business owners that are willing to go above and beyond will make it to the first page of Google and STAY there.
If you don’t have the time to complete these tasks, then outsource it to someone else. 90% of SEO companies will outsource everything I’ve mentioned in this book to another SEO company in India for half the price.
