Automatic RSS Submission Tools: RSS Submit And FeedSubmitter

Getting your RSS feeds in place is not enough to get your headlines—and content, if you will—picked up by RSS indexes and directories.

Robin Good realized this long ago when he first started offering his collection of RSS feed submission sites (RSSTop55 - Best Blog Directory And RSS Submission Sites). Over time this document has become an authoritative resource and frankly, Robin was just about to release his own automatic submission service. But someone beat him to the finish line!

The Good news is that Kory Becker, owner and chief programmer of software development company Ksoft, has just announced the public release of a tool that beautifully complements Robin's meticulous work and that works out of the box right now. Here is what I have found out what about it:

 

 

From the tool's product information page:

"RSS Submit is the quickest way to submit your RSS Feeds to the RSS search engines. RSS Submit automates the process of submitting your RSS feeds, publishing your content, and getting more traffic.

RSS Submit supports the following RSS Search Engines:


  • Yahoo

  • Moreover

  • News Knowledge

  • Syndic8

  • Newsmob

  • Sourceforge

  • YellowBrix

  • Genecast

  • Blogdex

  • Popdex

  • BlogStreet

  • BlogWise

  • BoingBoing

  • 2RSS

  • BlogDigger

  • Bloogz

  • EasyRSS

  • EduRSS

  • Fyber Search

  • Memigo

  • News Trove

  • RSS Clipping

  • Feedster

  • DayPop

  • Technorati

  • Postami

  • PubSub

  • BulkFeeds

  • Feeds Farm


RSS Submit clearly reports on its submission progress

Becker, whose other virtual offspring PopupDummy won high marks from PC Magazine, clearly understands how to write courteous software:

  • The user interface is simple and easy-to-understand

  • The download is incredibly small, just 779 Kb

  • Multiple RSS feeds may be submitted simultaneously

  • Users may determine to which directories they want to submit

  • Submission progress is clearly gauged on-screen

  • Detailed submission results from each site are displayed after completion


RSS Submit results with NewsTrove

RSS Submit costs US$24.95, including free, life-time updates
The 12-day free trial (779 Kb) allows to evaluate the software with three feeds and a reduced number of directories.

OR

You can jump right now into this desktop-based, free, less ambitious, alternative. This is the just-released FeedSubmitter from Thomas Korte.

This Web-based, free service lets you add your RSS newsfeed to 15 RSS aggregators as well as to Google and Yahoo Search.

Just enter your Feed URL and email address. The script will do the rest and give you success/error messages for every site.

This is not a full-blown commercial product, but it does a pretty good job at what it is supposed to do. I have indeed tested it and it does work.

Do you recommend submitting your rss feeds just once? Also, should your blog have some content built up prior to submission or doesn't that matter?

Thanks!
Mike

Robin,

Yet again the most pertinent, useful and resouceful of articles.

I find this to be the perfect tool for submitting feeds and it's so affordable, a real treasure of a 'find' courtesy of the noble knave of Sherwood :O)

Sir, I bow my head to thee!

Mike
