As we all love social media, we all know that RSS Management though not knew, is a good extra component to make it easier for your readers to follow your genius, and words of wisdom. As the best blogging tool in the world, WordPress, has many options to add, tweak, and generally have fun with RSS Management.
Real Simple Syndication, (RSS), plugins are shown below. These should come in handy to record, track, and make it easy for your readership to hang onto your every inspired word. As a note of caution, just choose the ones that you need rather than what you like the sound of. Too many and the speed your blog moves at, will be comparable to a large political organisation.
Feed Campaign Tagger. This little gem will allow you to track what people are looking at from their RSS feeds from your site. It tracks the links they click on which is how you can determine what they’re up to. With this information you can refine your site for your readership, if you wish.
Feed Subscriber Stats. This plugin enables visitor tracking from the dashboard, rather than looking at the front page of your site. This back office function works via feedburner. It in essence, it gives you that little bit more information which means you don’t have to switch between screens.
Feedage Tracker provides buttons which enable people to subscribe to your site. Of course if they do not like your site, they wont press the buttons. This is a nice idea none the less, and it also provides subscriber stats as well.
Feedstats. This baby provides all sorts of useful RSS stats, and you can configure them to, to make the information provided more relevant. How many people are subscribing, what pages they’re visiting, and time on site are a few options you may find useful.
RSS Link Tagger. This plugin makes your RSS feed compatible with Google Analytics, which obviously means that all the Google Analytic toys are there to be seen.
RSS Image. This plugin effectively replaces the “align” tag which was removed by WordPress to bring it into line with web standards. This is handy for aligning pictures in your blog, as it makes it so much more easier, and keeps a lot of hair on your head.
This plugin allows you to make it easier for readers to access certain pages or categories of your blog. So now category pages, tag pages, search pages, author pages, and comment feeds for single articles and pages, are at the fingertips of your users.
Feed Comments Number will display the number of comments in a post as an image rather than text. This can be preferable to standard text as it dynamically updates faster in the feed. It simply displays “Add a comment”, if there is none.
Media RSS, as the name suggests is all things media related to your RSS. In effect it means you can add various types of media in your RSS feed, like video for example.
These handy little tweaks and plugins for RSS will make your blog more accessible and more easily manipulated for the reading pleasure of your readership. This not only makes your WordPress blog easier to use, but it also makes it more appealing to your readership, because in essence, you have made it easy for them to read the blog.
RSS is being used more and more by people to access blogs, so it is something you should be at least thinking about, if not looking into. Anything that enhances your blog has to be good.
