Yesterday DailyBlogTips had a post with extensive list of tips for increasing number of RSS subscribers . It is supposed to help bloggers like me, who are currently outsiders in Blogging Idol . I am barely in top 40 at moment.
One tip really caught my attention.
“Use testimonials on your “Subscribe” page ”. I know why I provide RSS feeds (recent posts and software updates ), consider them important and valuable for my readers. I have all that written on my updates page . But I am on other side of glass here and that had clouded my judgment in the past.
So tell me – why are you reading my feed ? Do you find it convenient? Less trouble than visiting blog? Do not want to miss update? Only want tiny part of content and use feed to monitor for it? Waiting for parts of ongoing series? Whatever else?
I’ll put all (or select part in unlikely case I get too much) testimonials on my updates page with link to your site/blog and such. :)
