RSS Feeds for Successful Artists

Today, more than ever an artist needs to increase their exposure on the Internet in order to reach their target audience.  An art website setup with an RSS feed can help an artist to achieve this goal. An RSS feed on an art website can increase the following and the coverage for the site owner.

A website owner or a webmaster who has an RSS feature built into their website has an automatic and simple way to distribute any of their site’s new content to any interested persons, to other websites and finally as a way to distribute any new content to the social media universe.

An RSS feed allows someone who is interested in you, your product or service to follow your website through a feed reader. Two of the greater advantages of an RSS Feed are:

1. It allows someone who follows a lot of websites to quickly collect, organize and review your new content.

2. The RSS feature increases the amount of visitors who will be exposed to your content through your website syndication. Subscribers may also distribute your new content to their website visitors and to their social media followers as well.

Overall, RSS capabilities create one more tool that an artist can employ to help increase their website’s exposure, expand their followers and ultimately to gain a higher page rank with the major search engines.
