A web feed can be used for pretty much any content on your website or blog.
- Recent changes on a page of a website
- Tech support updates
- Product news
- New listings for a realtor
- Job vacancies
The list is almost endless. Every business has several types of content they can put in an RSS feed.
Essentially it is a content delivery vehicle. It is the format used when you want to syndicate news and other web content. When it distributes the content it is called a feed. You could think of RSS as your own personal wire service.
I have identified a simple yet effective technique that utilizes RSS Feeds from our website and blog that will get free, regular indexing of all our content from Yahoo. This technique is also cost effective as it bypasses the need to pay Yahoo! to basically do the same thing.
