RSS

How many sites do you check everyday for news?  With so many news sites, blogs and the like it’s impossible to stay up with everything.  That’s where RSS steps in.  It’s a great way for you to “subscribe” to the sites you want and then they push the news to you rather than you checking to see what’s new.

To find RSS feeds check out Feedster

I’m sure you’ll agree that the first thing you notice on these sites is the terrific photos.  So my advice is make sure your site has lots of great photos.  It will definitely have an impact.
