Re: [syndic8] RSS virgin
- Getting your content noticed is basically a marketing issue, and to a
large extent this makes it a very separate topic from RSS. RSS is
analogous to HTML. It's a technology that allows something to happen,
but actually making it happen involves other things -- things that are
both technical (computers, networks, server software, etc.) and human
(creativity, motivation, etc.).
At a technical level, you can use discovery mechanisms to help your
feeds be automatically found -- see "Finding Subscribers - Meta-Data"
in my "Give Your Site the RSS Treatment" article at:
http://www.just-stuart.com/geeks/rss_treatment.php However, "getting
noticed" in the sense you have in mind is a human condition, so no
matter how many times your feed is auto-discovered by a computer, it
still needs a human to decide, "Hmm, that's interesting."
So, in a somewhat-delayed nutshell, I recommend looking at your goal
differently. Once you have the feed technically correct, shift your
attention to non-RSS-relevant methods of marketing your content.
