Add a Footer to Your Feed with Better Feed

Lee Odden     Blogging Strategy

Better Feed LogoBetter Feed is a WordPress plugin that allows the blog owner to add a custom footer to the end of each post in their feed.  This a great way to customize what your readers see when they only read your feed, and don’t click through to your site.

Here are a few things you can do with Better Feed:

  • Add a copyright line.
  • Add text and links back to your site or blog.
  • Add announcements.
  • Add an advertisement, promotion or other call to action (CTA).
  • Add in tags, categories, comments, author and other post specific items.
  • Design it as you want.
  • Do pretty much anything.

This is a great solution to the issue of other sites scraping your content and re-posting it as well.  You can ensure that after each post they scrape, it links back to the source. If the scraper site pulls out all the clickable links, you can put the post URL into the feed footer and it’ll still display.

Here are a few examples of feed footers from other sites.
