RSS Syndication is not the simple and direct conversion of one HTML news feed into another. There are multiple mechanisms that must be taken into account for a successful syndication. Those interested in knowing more about these mechanisms should do some research before engaging in this kind of activity.
The basic syndication model is that each blog publishes their own copy of a news article and its syndicated from other blogs that have also had permission to syndicate their articles. Once an article is syndicated, it becomes available for distribution on other sites. This works just fine, but it does not necessarily cover everything.
The basic syndication model does not provide an option for publishing and then distributing news articles without having them have an associated resource box. If the publication does not have a resource box, it is like throwing away your money and time for nothing. As an individual reader or as a member of a reader’s group, you have to ask yourself: why should I pay for something that is available free? Why not submit to the same publication that published my blog in the first place?
Another issue with RSS syndication is that many publications will ignore your syndicated material. Some articles will not be included, while others will be rejected. Even if they accept your submissions, you may still get no comments at all.
Another big issue with RSS syndication is that the quantity of duplicate content can also cause issues. There are so many sites that subscribe to feeds that you may end up having the same content appears on different sites. This is particularly true when the same article appears multiple times on the same page.
Syndication is good for getting a particular topic of information out to many people. It is the perfect way to make sure you do not miss out on traffic or sales. But with RSS, the audience grows by the number of sites that syndicate your material.
Successful RSS syndication requires careful planning and quality control. While it is not difficult to make changes to your RSS feed, you need to be very careful. Don’t make any major changes at once, because that can cause you to lose readership.
Another major issue with RSS syndication is that if you want to have original material, it will take a lot of work to find the original article. Some sites have high search-volume and low volume. While these sites can be useful, they are not the best option.
