Vine Type Content Management with Standards in Mind

17 May 2005

Syndication Feeds

Website syndication is an internet technology and browser enhancement that continues to grow. Although many folks refer to all syndication as RSS, RSS is only one of several syndication formats.

Turning Brochures into Magazines

Syndication turns "brochure" websites into "magazine" websites. Brochure sites are like display windows that visitors must visit in order to see what has changed. With syndication feeds, visitors can subscribe to your website -- and any new articles are "delivered" to folks who subscribe to your website.

When a website provides a syndication feed, website visitors can subscribe to your website. Then via the visitor's RSS aggregator (either a web browser enhancement or separate website) the website visitor is notified whenever your website changes. This keeps your visitors coming back and informed on all new and updated items. That is, if your site is syndication feed enabled.

Eight Different Feeds

Syndication feeds are a standard feature of Vine Type, and are simple to use and customize. Providing a syndication feed for your website visitors shows that you value their time and patronage.
