Why Syndicate Your Content?

The advantages of using other people’s feeds are obvious, but what about supplying your own? There are at least nine reasons to do so:

  • It increases traffic to your site.

  • It builds brand awareness for your site.

  • It can help with search engine rankings.

  • It helps cement relationships within a community of sites.

  • It improves the site/user relationship.

  • With additional technologies, it allows others to give additional features to your service—update-notification via instant messaging, for example.

  • It makes the Internet an altogether richer place, pushing semantic technology along and encouraging reuse. Good things happen when you share your data.

  • It gives you a good excuse to play with some cool stuff.

  • By reducing the amount of screen-scraping of your site, it saves wasted bandwidth.
