Looking for a solution to finding the signal you want in the social media noise. Turns out the solution was invented 15 years ago…
Is your site letting the big aggregators know when it publishes? If not, you need PubSubHubub
So we'll gloss over that and move on to Dan's second question: How do I manage them?
...I used to go through the various topic-based folders one at a time, but recently I noticed some folders tended to get neglected badly.
... My single worst habit in my feed reading is spawning umpteen tabs with pages I want to comment on, post about or just peruse in more detail. So, to all the bloggers who have written fantastic posts that I've marked to deal with later - and then never come back to: sorry.
Or is it merely a web page with some blog-like characteristics?
2. If you have a large number of RSS feeds in your aggregator, they really need to be tended like a garden. The dead wood and decaying flowers need to be trimmed away to let new shoots flourish, and you need to mow the lawn regularly. 1909 items unread does not count as a well-mown RSS lawn.
FeedBurner, the Chicago-based feed management startup that was recently acquired by Google, has decided to offer its Pro services for free. Users can now get all the Pro stats and services for free.
Pretty much par for the course with a Google acquisition, but great news for those of us who use Feedburner to monitor our feeds.
I will get there.
