How To Boost Site Traffic With Classified Ads And RSS

Online classified may be used to build a one-way link popularity. 

In some cases, they may net you actual real traffic.

You need to be really choosy with classifieds, though.

 Many of the free sites are junk, and your ad won't be read. 

Instead, I'd recommend placing classifieds in online versions of newsletters and ezines any targeted, content heavy sites that are set up to resemble a magazine.

 Double check, though, that their classifieds section (if any) appears well-organized and up-to-date.




It's also better if they charge a fee for placement, as this limits the freebie advertisers from cluttering up the listings.

Remember: any classified you place should a be a “teaser” - in other words, when you write your ad copy, think of it as an extended version of, say, the type of ad you might write for Google Adwords.

You're not making the pitch here, just compelling people to click on your link.


RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”. It's basically a “web standard” (on the computer code level) which defines an agreed upon method of syndicating content.

You can think of it like HTML. 

 You don't need to know HTML in order to view a web page, but you do need a basic knowledge of HTML if you want to create your own web page.

Likewise, it's not necessary to know all the ins and outs of RSS in order to syndicate your content. 

You just need to know that one line of RSS code which, when pasted into your web page, makes automatic content syndication possible.

Let's talk about content syndication for a moment.

When you distribute articles to, say, you're basically syndicating your content.

The catch is that this method is manual. Anyone who wants to reprint your content has to go to Your site, copy your article, and then paste it onto their own web site.

It's a hassle. Any time you have static content that can only be changed by hand, you wind up with websites that aren't updated as often.

But the name of the game now is fresh, quality content which rotates frequently. 

This keeps visitors coming back to your site. 

This also appeals to the search engines (how often you update your site influences how often the search spiders come back for a visit, too!).

Content syndication is also a link building tool. Some sites will simply pull in a link to your site, which will send traffic in your direction. 

Other sites actually pull in your content onto their own, dynamically generated pages.. 

This allows them to display the content within their own “look and feel” (site template), as well as keep visitors from clicking away to another destination.

Getting Syndicated:

You have two options:

1.  You can pull syndicated content onto your own site, so that you don't have to create all of your content on your own.

2.  You can syndicate your content. This will allow other sites to display your articles and make up for their own content needs.

It's a good idea to implement both tactics for maximum coverage.

By the way, you aren't limited to articles here. A lot of e-commerce sites syndicate their product catalogs (these are called “product feeds”) for their affiliates.

In order to take advantage of syndication, you need to implement RSS on your site

You can do this easily with any blog or PHP content management software.

You can also set this up on your hosting account with a few tweaks.

Last but not least, you can use a third-party content syndication service.

Have a Great Day.
