Has anyone got any experience of significant positive effects of syndicating their site content?
I'm building a new content management system, with a very strong SEO bias and decided to include automatic creation of the entire site content in RSS 2.0 format. While the format of the xml output is extremely simple, it's actually been quite tricky to get the dynamic creation of the output just right. I've almost cracked it though.
I've actually never bothered with RSS before, although I'm infinitely aware of what they say the benefits are - but I've not come across anyone who can actually verify the hype. So, has anyone here got information/experience they could share? Also - are there any top tips that I might find useful?
The new CMS system is quite basic by all accounts, but highly original too. It makes extensive use of AJAX to hugely speed up the interaction with the system and produce some rather clever and unique features.
I've still got a couple of weeks to go before it's ready for launch, but it's starting to get quite exciting. The clients I've shown the system to so far have been really blown away by what it can do. I can only assume they don't get out much? hehe
Sorry, back to the topic. I'm interested in RSS, and anyone's real experience of the effects of syndication - along with any hints/tips.
I would also be delighted to hear any comments / suggestions for features to include into this new CMS system. I'm intersted in SEO related comments only at this point though.
So, for example:
- RSS syndication
- RSS syndicated news & articles
- Ability to display RSS feeds on any topic, in any page.
- RSS Syndicated Blog capability
- Integrated keyword tool
- Integrated Ranking Checker
All of the above have already been built in - I'm on the look out for new ideas though?
Please remember though, it's a CMS that could be used for any website. It's not industry or market specific.
Appreciate your help and input.
