Easily Post Your Articles to YOUR Site

Displaying a list of your recently published articles on your website or blog is easy with the power of RSS!

RSS (also known as XML) stands for Real Simple Syndication and is a way for people interested in certain topics to quickly get new information, news and other good stuff without having to wade through tons of web pages. RSS Pages are not meant for the human eye, but rather for RSS Readers or Aggregators.

Every EzineArticles Expert Author has an RSS feed of their articles, which means if you’re a Member with at least one published article, you have an RSS feed that contains a title, link, description and published date of your articles.

To Access Your RSS Feed:

  1. Go to your Expert Author Bio
  2. Mouse over this icon
  3. Click on this button
  4. You’ll be taken to a web page depicting your RSS feed. Copy the URL for that page onto your clipboard.
  5. Paste the URL into the appropriate field in your RSS module or plug-in application.
  6. For more information, click here.

Most website and blog authoring softwares have RSS capabilities in the form of plug-ins (WordPress), modules (Squidoo) or macros (WebGUI CMS). There are also HTML templates and add-ons like CaRP available online. You’ll need to review the documentation or contact your webmaster for details about how to add RSS to your site.*

There are many different ways you can configure the display of your article feed. But no matter how you do it, you’ll be reaping these benefits:

  • Easy access to your most recent articles directly from your site
  • Greater exposure and more article views
  • Increased credibility as an expert in your niche
  • Fresh site content with each new article published

If you’d like to see an example how one Expert Author uses RSS, check out http://www.boomer-ezine.com/Published_Articles.htm

No matter how you slice it, using the EzineArticles RSS feed to promote your own articles just makes sense. If you’re not currently using this powerful tool, go add it to your site today! Then come back here and tell us about it by leaving a comment below.

* Note: Adding RSS feeds to your website requires intermediate-to-advanced web authoring skills and may be too challenging for beginners. EzineArticles Member Support cannot provide support for RSS feed implementation.

Hi,

I never thought I can make use of EzineArticles RSS feed. I’ll use this feature once I crossed at least 10 articles in my profile.

Tremendous! Operation successful! As per your instructions I went ahead and used Google to get the URL. Copied it and pasted on my blog with the title as ‘RSS Feed’. The link is instantly active and throws open all my articles.

THANKS!

I’ve had a widget on my website and blog for a long time and today they both came up with:

Author articles not foundSorry, no articles from the author requested by this widget could be found at EzineArticles.

It is possible the author does not have any published articles in the category requested, or at all. Please visit the link below to test and create a new widget:

I think I have around 200 articles but I can’t seem to log into my acct. to check.

Will this also work for authors that have lots of articles? Or would it crash your data base and that of the author’s site to do it?

Lance,

RSS services are READ only and they are protected from scrapers; so the chances of database crashes from RSS use would be rare.

Gail,

We’re in a very unusual circumstance today… Hopefully by the time you read this blog comment, all systems will be fully restored.

It’s 1am CST right now and 5 of our developers are still here working on the issues that have taken us up and down for the past 12 hours.

Current problems are related to hardware failures and we’ve cut over to our hot spare; but the transition was not as smooth as expected.

We won’t sleep until all services are fully restored.
