How to use RSS feed

For those who have spent any amount of time online, you probably have found the term RSS. This phrase commonly stands for Really Simply Syndication. It is sometimes rendered Rich Site summary. Syndication which indicates republishing some information originating from a completely different source. This might be a blog or possibly a website.

An Rss Or Atom is really a method of providing updates about internet sites.

It might include a conclusion and images from the most recent update. But those that deliver reviews( hence Rich Site Summary) allow end users to skim throughout the post in order that they could decide later on if they need to gain access to the web site origin.

The RSS feed usually contains the title on the update from the website. It is also generally the web link for the website source.

Thinking about think about using Really Simply Syndication?

RSS delivers positive aspects to simultaneously visitors(consumers) and online publishers.

To stay on top of the increasing information vault, RSS gives you revisions instantly.

What are RSS Feeds

Whether it is in regards to the weather, songs, software program update, neighborhood information, or a new post originating from a seldom- updates web site discover the most up-to-date as soon as it comes out.

If constructed properly, Feed will save you time.

In the present busy world, time management techniques is an imperative skill. RSS enables the user to glance through a summary of predetermined content depending on regions of interest.

Subsequently, the user has power to receive only items wanted.

End Users get a free-hand to which sites to subscribe to with their RSS aggregators and they can change anytime they choose in different ways.

Another reason, your e-mail accounts has much less content to rummage through.

While you can obtain RSS revisions by means of email, it’s not necessary to make use of e mail support. Feed aggregators are made to see updates easily.

In addition, it truly is junk e-mail free.


RSS Feed vs Email

The cool section of RSS Or Atom is that you don’t have make use of current email address making you less susceptible to getting you e mail discovered by spammers.

One other reason is it is possible to remove yourself from list using a click of the mouse.

Unlike email monthly subscriptions in which the user is asked questions on why he is unsubscribing after which an individual can be requested to confirm unsubscribing, all you have to do is to erase the RSS from the aggregator.

One last purpose is that you may find the Rss/Atom is definitely an effortless resource for advertising your products or company.
Consumers who subscribe or syndicated product web sites get the newest news on products and services without the website delivering spam This is certainly advantageous to both net consumer as well as the website owner given that marketing gets targeted; those who are in fact thinking about their products are kept updated.

Does RSS have any negatives?
The drawbacks of Rss Or Atom use are caused by its being a fairly unfamiliar technology.

Many visitors will choose going to their current email address for info instead of utilizing an RSS aggregator.

The next reason, visuals and photographs don’t appear in all Rss Or Atom feeds.

This is not always the case. Most aggregators don’t include these embeds.  However, there are some online- based aggregators that do display the images and photos from the reference site.

Additionally, you will discover that it is sometimes tough to know the location where the feed is originating from.

Whenever you take a look at an RSS feed in the RSS aggregator, you generally do not read the URL of the source and that can be confusing for readers.

RSS Feed

One more disadvantage to a feed, web publishers can not determine how many customers are subscribed to their feed as well as the frequency of the visits. Additionally, they might not know the reasons why users unsubscribe which could be important in increasing their promotion.

Because RSS feeds can require more use of the server where the feed originates from, you need to think about outcomes in your overall website efficiency.

Customers will, in all probability, click through to your web site when the information is appealing and relevant.

Amazon S3 – How to Setup an Account

Posted on 14 April 2011 by Linda Joseph

Amazon S3 is a great place to store your large files like video files.

NOTE: Amazon S3 does not replace your hosting! Think of it as a supplement to your hosting.  It does not have CPanel but the rates for storage and bandwidth are quite small.

I have over 100 videos in my membership site and the load on my hosting was significant.  Amazon S3 gives me a faster load time for my videos as well as keep the costs down.  I strongly recommend that you use video for your business.

Yes, there are many free video hosting sites, but you will eventually want more control over your videos as well as look more professional so you are going to want to consider using Amazon S3.

Here is Amazon’s definition:   Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, secure, fast, inexpensive infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers.

I have walked many clients through the process of setting up their Amazon S3 account.  I recently completed a step by step tutorial.   I will be posting it shortly under Internet Tutor Free Reports.

What is Amazon S3

Posted on 13 April 2011 by Linda Joseph

Amazon S3 is storage for the Internet.
(S3 stands for  Simple Storage System.)

It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. However I just use it as a cheap hosting for my video files.  The access time is fast and I never have to worry about bandwidth issues.

NOTE: Even if you have unlimited bandwidth on your hosting you will find that if you take too much bandwidth, you hosting provider will contact you with the fine print in the contract.  (Ask me how I know..:o)..)

It’s the cheapest hosting solution for your files – and it’s perfect for
membership sites, product downloads and more.

It’s a MUST if you want to do well on the Internet in my opinion.

However, almost all the tutorials on how to use it are wrong. They
teach you things that put you in danger.

I just went through some training on how to use Amazon S3 the RIGHT way.

I learned step by step how to be an Amazon S3 Pro in no time.

This training is perfect for anyone who treats their Internet
marketing like a BUSINESS.

Amazon S3 Training

Learn the right way to use Amazon S3.  (This will save you time in the long run. I taught myself and then had to go back and fix the errors!)

I found out the hard way that I was leaving my membership and product content open for anyone who wanted to take my information without paying.  (I was surprised to learn that most Internet marketers don’t know how to protect their content!)

Once I understood the exposure and how Amazon S3 works, I was able to go into my account and fix the exposures.  Although the work wasn’t difficult it was tedious!  (Doing it right the first time would have saved me hours of time.)

Save yourself time and money by getting some low cost Amazon S3 training.

Helping You Define Your Road Map to Success,
PS If you deliver video or audio content, you will want to learn how to use Amazon S3.
PPS I just completed a Step by Step guide on how to setup an Amazon S3 account.  See if it is still available on the ‘Free Internet Reports‘ page.

Free Facebook for Business Video

Posted on 12 April 2011 by Linda Joseph

Free Basic Facebook Strategy Video – I just watched this video and Tinu shares a lot of great content for free.

I started following Tinu about a year ago when Jim Cockrum recommended her Facebook product.  I bought the Facebook offer and have continued to purchase most of her products.

Why? Because they are good, reasonably priced, practical and I can see that what she is recommending is what she is doing today.  Most of her guides are under $10!!  (Her bonuses alone are worth over 10 times the price of her product.) (To say the least, she over-delivers!)

Enough about Tinu, watch the video and let me know what you think. It is about

She has just released a free video. It is about 40 minutes long and has some great nuggets about how to use Facebook for your business.

If you want more info on her full length guides, go to
Fast Facebook Fan Page Traffic
Fast Facebook Traffic

I have both of these guides and they are good.  If you could only invest in one, I would go with the Fast Facebook Fan Page Traffic.  Tinu is using this to bring in about 20 new fans a day or more.  I started using her process and am bringing in a few fans a day but I have just started following her process and it is taking me time to get into an efficient 15 minute routine.

Get started building you business using Facebook.

Helping You Define Your Road Map to Success,
PS Let me know what you thing of the video.
