A lot of new writes at InfoBarrel and on personal blogs do not fully grasp the concept of submitting your RSS feed to a feed directory. In fact many true first timers don't even know that this is a possibility let alone know why they might do it. The simple reason is this: when you submit your article feed to an RSS directory like Feedage the search engine spiders will access your articles then index and rank them slightly faster and higher than if your don't. The reason for this is the links.
When your article RSS feed is found on another website then search engines now have new routes to find your content. These backlinks help your articles authority and importance improve and to a small degree you will see better results with each new article publication.
Now there are many different RSS directories out there to submit to so why should you care about Feedage? The reason is simple, Feedage offers up a specific URL in which your summarized article feed appears on and on this page Feedage links back to every single one of your articles with a dofollow link. Many of the other directories don't do this and that is why if you submit to any directories you should do it to at least Feedage.
How To Submit Your RSS Feed To Feedage
Step 1 â€“ Open a Feedage Account
This is the simple step. In a new tab or window in your internet browser, head over to Feedage.com and click the "Sign Up" link in the "Getting Started" section. You will need a valid email address to do this step and you will be asked if you want the newsletter â€“ this is optional so feel free to decline the newsletter if you want.
Step 2 â€“ Copy Your InfoBarrel Article RSS Feed
While logged into InfoBarrel on your other internet browser tab navigate to your "My InfoBarrel" page and click "My Content". You should now see a button next to your published articles called "My Article Feed".
Click the button that says "My Article Feed" and you should be taken to a new page of either feed coding or a page that give you the ability to subscribe to the feed. No matter what page you see the URL at the top of your screen should say something along the lines of http://www.infobarrel.com/feed-user.php?id=XXXXXXX. The "Xs" in the preceding example will be your unique article ID on InfoBarrel. Copy this URL.
Step 3 â€“ Submit Your RSS Feed To Feedage
Return to your newly created Feedage account and navigate to your "Dashboard" if you are not already there. From your Dashboard click on the menu button that reads "My Feeds".
At the bottom of your "My Feeds" page you should see a link that says "Submit A RSS Feed". Click this link and then past your copied RSS feed into the "URL" box. Feel free to title this feed anything you want and choose a "Niche" from the dropdown box for categorization on The Feedage site. If you plan on only submitting articles on a single topic then choose that topic. If you suspect your articles will cover many topics then you can choose a more general topic like "Business".
Make sure the "Enabled Check Box" is checked so that your feed is actually submitted and enabled.
Once this form has been filled out you have to hit the save button and you will return to the "My Feeds" screen. From here you can click on the title of your newly created InfoBarrel article feed to see it live on Feedage's site. Your feed may not look exactly "pretty" on the site but the fact that it is there is what's important.
Step 4 â€“ Backlink Your Feed
Note that each of your recent publications on InfoBarrel are listed on this page and that there is link pointing to each one. This means that when you publish a new article on InfoBarrel a backlink to it from Feedage automatically appears. If you want this backlink to be more powerful or significant then you can always do a small backlinking campaigning on this Feedage page to ensure it is indexed and has some authority to pass on to the links on the page. This is entirely optional but it can help.
Feedage For Bloggers
The above info is mostly the same for bloggers and it can help you with your blogs results online too. Bloggers can even get creative and build RSS pages for their tags or categories to make the Feedage page a little more focused on single topics rather than all of your feed but for simplicity just setting up this one feed and marketing it a little bit can make a big difference especially to a new blog or a new InfoBarrel author.
