Add RSS Feeds to Your Website

So, let’s say you have a website and a blog. You want to advertise your blog on your website. It’s easy enough to add a link to your blog on your website, but that’s amateur stuff. You can do better. Why not add your RSS feed for your blog on your website so that a list of your current posts (and links to them) appear on your website’s sidebar (or elsewhere).

Of course, me being a WordPress lover and all, I say your website should be created on a blog-powered platform to begin with so it’s a simpler process. But, let’s not split hairs. There are a couple of tools out there that help generate JavaScript code so you can add any RSS feed on your website. Unfortunately, the free ones have a credit link that links back to the website where you got the code from. This is not the worst thing. You can also just pay a little fee to get custom coding that removes this little link ad in many cases.

Anyway, here are a couple of sites offering scripts that help you add fresh content by adding RSS feeds to your website:

RSS Content Builder: A software you can use for free or a more robust software you can purchase for $77.

RSS to JavaScript: Free online tool where you can automatically generate code to add RSS feeds to your website.

RSS 2 Java: Another free online tool where you can automatically generate code to add RSS feeds to your website.

Another option of course is to hire a web developer versed in PHP. It’s up to you and your wallet. It’s worth at least getting the free one because search engines just love fresh content. They eat it up. One more way to increase page ranking!
