RSS Promotion Tips

RSS feeds are only as good as the number of subscribers they have, so to gain more exposure for your pre-packaged bits of content, Andy MacDonald suggests registering with as many feed directories (and blog directories, if applicable) as possible.

Enabling auto-discovery of your feed can also go a long way toward increasing subscriptions.
