Control Your RSS Feeds Footer in WordPress

Did you ever wonder how do people add additional footer texts to their posts in RSS Feeds, but it does not appear on their blog. Well one way to achieve that is by a plugin called RSS Footer.

This plugin lets you add a specific text at the end of all your posts when viewed in RSS Feeds. Most bloggers use this feature to get their feed readers to subscribe, but other bloggers use this to prevent spammers from copying their content. There are many spam blogs in each industry that copies your content from your RSS feeds, and paste it on their blog without giving you any credit for it. By adding a linkback to your site in your RSS Footer of each post, you will get a free backlink from their site. So when any user who visit their site by accident or on purpose, will know that the article is from your site.

You can also use this plugin to promote your personal products, or a special post. Maybe you can link to your new book that you wrote, or a special article that you wrote. Nonetheless it is a great way to control your RSS Feeds.

RSS Footer Plugin

How come my FeedBurner feed doesn’t immediately show the changes?

You should first try to ping FeedBurner, and see if that makes it show up in your feed. If it doesn’t, log in to your FeedBurner account, select the appropriate feed, and click on the “Troubleshootize” tab. Half way down the page you’ll find a “Resync” button, that should make the changes show up almost instantly.
