RSS Feed Button Tool

RSS Feed Buttons
According to a white paper on RSS (pdf) sponsored by Yahoo and Ipsos Insight, providing easy ways for users to subscribe to RSS feeds using their favoriate feed reader or aggregator can improve distribution of that feed.

Thomas, our SEO Designer and blog marketing guru, has made a very cool tool for quickly creating up to 14 RSS feed subscription buttons or chicklets for your blog.

Just fill in the blog title, blog url and feed url and the for will reply with code for subscription buttons to: Rojo, My Yahoo, Bloglines, newsgator, My MSN, Pluck, NewsBurst, searchfox, Google Reader, My AOL, del.icio.us, Feedster, Furl and Yahoo My web.

I must say, it is a very useful tool!

  1. Great post! I just used the RSS subscription button generator and it worked wonderfully. One suggestion I might have though if you plan to use this generator is that you save the images locally and host them yourself so that you are not relying on TwisterMC.com to host images on your blog. It might help eliminate possible performance issues if TwisterMC.com’s server hiccups.

  2. Thanks Frank. TwisterMC.com is a blog that belongs to one of my employees, but I see your point. We’ll be adding this tool to my company site, http://www.toprankresults.com soon.

  3. Oh ok, gotcha, I did not realize that. Very helpful tool and it works great! Thanks Lee.

  4. I’ve added it to the TopRank site. Lee will link to it when he’s ready. I’ve also made a zip file with all the images available on the TopRank site and my site.

  5. Very nice, thanks! Useful, indeed.

  6. So many resources, so many RSS buttons, so many acronyms (OPML… etc.) and so little time in the day. I count 15 icons to the left of this single article. I think that RSS readers are not the long term solution because in the end companies will want to do research and tracking on all the information exposed by bloggers (most bloggers are thoughtful and are expressing a valid opinion!). So we create a corporate website-based aggregator to do just that. Check it out! http://www.seodata.com

  7. You can always use Feedburner to get a lot more results. You can generate instant email subscription boxes and RSS chicklets. There are also lots of features inside in optimizing and monitizing your feed.

  8. Sreejith, Feedburner is a good RSS hosting service, but they do not offer the variety of RSS subscription buttons nor the flexibility that our RSS Button tool does.

  9. This is just fantastic! I just added it to all my blogs…so easy!

  10. I use itsmynews, i wanted to know if you could add it to your tool. It is a new web based RSS reader with tons of feeds and a lot of cool features such as there site of the day, also they make it very easy to share feeds with your friends

  11. RSS FEED BUTTON TOOL is great! But after I Went through all the steps to get the code it turns out it was in Java and WordPress.com does not allow Java.

    Can I convert the code to non-java or is there non-java code available please? Or how can I contact author so that he CAN create non java code please?

    Thanks for your time
