Where is your RSS feed?

I recently had a faithful blog reader ask me this question. Good question, I thought, where is it? I hunted around Blogger.com dashboard and found it hiding under the Layout button.

Go to Dashboard. Look at the box at the top of the page titled Manage Your Blogs. Click on Layout and then click on Add Page Element. See the section Subscription Links (New!)Let your readers easily subscribe to your blog with popular feed readers. Click on the button "Add to Blog".

Another way to access the Layout page is to go to the Posting page and click on the Layout tab at the top menu.

View your Blog and you will see the orange RSS feed button. Users can click on this button and add your blog to their blog reader.

What's a blog reader? Good question. Look for the answer in my next blog posting.

See the excellent article "What is RSS?"

What is Link Popularity?

You may have heard the term link popularity. It is the total number
of links to your website from other websites or directories.

Why is Link Popularity Important?

Having many good quality links to your website will increase targeted traffic to your website. Google tracks these links to your website and rates your website with a Page Rank number. Websites with a Page Rank 3 or more are the best ones to place your website link.
