RSS Feed Submission Established as a Good SEO Linking Campaign

When you publish a blog, RSS feeds are great ways to get your message out and connect with readers in your target market. RSS feeds allow you to broadcast out your messages, bring in new readers to your blog with an interest in your chosen topic, and build-up a committed reader-base, all at the same time. In addition, RSS feeds are a great choice of a variety of tools which can help with your SEO linking campaign.

One of the first things you quickly discover as a blogger is that a successful search engine optimization campaign can take up a ton of your time, and raise your frustration level to new heights, all at the same time. Many new bloggers generally start with the blog submit sites and even attempt manual RSS feed submit techniques, but eventually they all end up deciding that it is just all too much work to do with any real regularity. However, if they give up completely it really hurts their SEO efforts and their ability to grow and monetize their blog successfully. And, if they choose to do it half-heartedly or only occasionally, then it really isn’t a very successful to help improve their search engine rankings.

The problem with using a manual feed submitter, or using an individual RSS submitter even, is that it is very time consuming to deal with on a consistent basis. Most bloggers simply want to blog and get their words out to the world; they do not want to spend hours upon hours on their SEO and marketing efforts. By submitting your RSS feed to each site at a time, you can easily spend hours upon hours of time and never really get too much return for all of your work.

Software programmers, many of them bloggers themselves, have developed some great semi-automatic RSS feed submit tools which you can now choose from to help submit your RSS feed without it being such a time consuming proposition. These software programs allow you to simultaneously submit your blog and RSS feeds to literally thousands of directories, and to do it all with only a couple quick mouse-clicks.

Setting up the RSS feed submission software is a breeze and the submission process takes less than ten or fifteen minutes each day, from start to finish, making it much faster and easier than manual RSS submit attempts.

If you are a blogger interested in publishing RSS and getting your feed out into the RSS databases of the world, I would highly suggest that you check out some of the amazing new RSS software tools available to you today on the market. Choose a tool that is easy to use and one which will allow you to reach the maximum amount of directories possible for the least amount of hands-on work. Additionally, if you are taking the time to use more robust XML feed technologies, you want to use a semi-automatic feed submitter for those as well.

By remembering that your ultimate goal as a blogger or webmaster is always the most exposure and back links possible, for the least amount of your time, you simply cannot go wrong using a semi-automatic feed submitter. And, your search engine rankings will soar through the roof as a nice by-product of all of that exposure and linking.

Flash On The iPhone - Yes Or No

Got a real treat today, gang. Ever see those flash stick figure fighter animations on the web? If not they’re a riot and Alan Becker, the master of stickflash kung fu, has a wickedly sick animation of his character coming to life and starting an extensive battle sequence with his animator and items on his computer. Amazingly talented, funny and animated, if you haven’t seen this, it’s a can’t miss.

And now here Nintendo Japan has a very Wii-like website for Mario Kart for the Wii. It’s in native Japanese but they make the shiny buttons almost as fun to press as the actual Wii buttons themselves. I’ve always been a fan of Princess Peach myself

I always thought if you’re going to have the stones to call a car “The Matrix” it better be the coolest car this side of Laurence Fishburne. It’s not bad…just not matrix cool y’know? What is cool, however, is their marketing campaign in the form of their ads and their flash site.

We’ve got Brajeshwar again this week with his article about Apple’s trepidation concerning their lack of Flash on the iPhone. They didn’t do it. Now say they want to do it. But can they do it? Ol’ Braj expounds upon the subject.

Microsoft Offers To Buy Yahoo

The world’s top software company could boost its online presence dramatically if Yahoo accepts a
$44.6 billion bid to be purchased.

Microsoft has offered Yahoo shareholders a 62 percent premium on their shares to sell the company.
Yahoo’s latest disappointing earnings announcement helped to depress the stock price, making it a
renewed target for a takeover.

“We have great respect for Yahoo!, and together we can offer an increasingly exciting set of solutions
for consumers, publishers and advertisers while becoming better positioned to compete in the online
services market,” Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said in a statement.

With online advertising projected to grow to $80 billion by 2010, Microsoft can grab a larger slice of
that pie if it can pull in Yahoo, which ranks as the world’s heaviest trafficked web property.

The webmaster’s resources list

There’s no such thing as “the list” when it comes to webmasters and tools that they/we often use. Everyone has a program to rely on, a website to learn from or an ebook for guidance. We’re so addicted to our favorite programs that we could not imagine our work otherwise. Things started with notepad mostly and look where we are right now. It could take 100 pages such as this one to cover, maybe, 10% of what’s out there valued as a good resource for us. In this article, we’ve tried to identify the most used tools for programmers, designers and SEO guys/gals and put up a nice list that will surely bring you at least 10 new things to learn about. Things that make you more productive, saves you time or give you the opportunity to earn more money. It’s all here in the “Webmaster’s top list of resources”.

Is Your Website Hackable? Why You Need To Worry - Part III

Statistics

Since many organizations do not monitor online activity at the web application level, hackers have free reign and even with the tiniest of loop holes in a company’s web application code, any experienced hacker can break in using only a web browser and a dose of creativity and determination. It seems that most hack attacks are discovered months after the initial breach simply because attackers do not want and will not leave an audit trial. In web application attacks physical evidence (e.g., a missing database) is inexistent – hackers are interested in stealing the data and leaving it intact.

Recent research by a leading research firm shows that 75% of cyber attacks are done at web application level. As yet unpublished research at Acunetix seems to corroborate this finding. Competing web application security organizations record similar data.

The Privacy Clearing House reports more interesting findings including the fact that over 100 million records have been compromised since February 2005. However this figure excludes the TJX episode of around 40 million records. Out of a total of around 140 million approximately 80 million were due to hacking attacks. Having said this it is not known whether the TJX episode was a network or a web application breach.

The Cost of Being Hacked

The costs of hack attacks to any organization are extensive with possible financial burdens that may result in closure:

* Loss of customer confidence, trust and reputation with the consequent harm to brand equity and consequent effects on revenue and profitability;
* Possible loss of the ability to accept certain payment instruments e.g. VISA, Mastercard
* Negative impact on revenues and profits arising from any falsified transactions and from employee downtime;
* Website downtime which is in effect the closure of one of the most important sales channels for an e-business;
* The expenditure involved in repairing the damage done and building contingency plans for securing compromised websites and web applications; and,
* Legal battles and related implications from Web application attacks and lax security measures including fines and damages to be paid to victims.

The figure above shows the total losses as reported by the 2005 CSI/FBI Annual Computer Crime and Security Survey.

The total losses per category of breach (valid only for the US) is reported to be over $130 m for the 639 respondents willing and able to estimate their losses. The Survey authors also state that while explicit costs (such as costs of reinstalling software and reconfiguring computer systems) is more accurately accounted for by respondents, implicit costs (such as lost future sales due to negative media coverage following a breach) is more difficult to account for and are largely not represented in the loss numbers reported here.

Now does it sound apocalyptic? I believe there is serious need for all to worry.
