RSS It! Functionality Converts A Web Site Into An RSS Feed
SiteSell Announces Launch of RSS It!
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
SiteSell.com today announced the release of RSS It!, the latest addition to its Site Build It! system. This innovative feature converts the user's Web site into an RSS feed. RSS, "Really Simple Syndication," is a content distribution model that is rapidly gaining in popularity.
RSS It! creates an XML RSS file for the SBI! user. This tool modifies the file whenever a Web page is added or changes and/or when the user inserts a non-Web page item into his or her feed. RSS It! also automatically pings every significant RSS directory/engine. No additional content development commitment, or technical experience, is required by the user.
Dr. Ken Evoy, the President of SiteSell.com, proposes that RSS is an important way for most small business owners to leverage their reach. "When the headline and summary of a specific RSS feed is appealing, the subscriber will click to the site for more information. And that is a visit that the Webmaster very likely might not have had, since the subscriber would not otherwise have known about his/her content."
To increase his audience's awareness about the potential of RSS, Evoy created an information site, rss.sitesell.com. He promotes RSS to his customers as an effective strategy to attract new visitors and build relationships with repeat ones.
"RSS It! functionality is just the stepping stone," adds Evoy excitedly. "SiteSell will soon be releasing Blog It!, which will allow SBIers to do site-blogging rather than just site-RSSing. They will even be able to podcast!"
