RSS article in the Press Gazette this week
by Martin Belam, 12 June 2007
I have an article published in this week's edition of Press Gazette.
Well, I say this week. We don't get it here in Greece, so I'm not 100% sure that it has appeared in print yet, but it certainly turned up on the Press Gazette website over the weekend.
I can't claim credit for the puntastic tabloid headline - "Does your website know its RSS from its elbow?" - but the rest of it is mine.
It looks at the questions you need to know the answer to if you are considering publishing RSS feeds of your content.
- Which feeds should I publish?
- How do I publish feeds?
- How do I let my audience know?
- Why bother doing any of this at all?
I think our sub had been waiting to use that headline for a while.
And yes you are in the printed version, which I can send you if you like.
Thanks for stopping by Patrick, I headline definitely raised a smile over here.
I'm one of those people who really likes being sub-edited actually - no spelling mistakes, duplicate words etc etc, and I'm always interested to see what gets tweaked. The wife does it for me on longer articles out here - but one day I'd love to be able to afford a sub-ed for the site!
I did some training as a sub-editor a few years back, and I have one headline I still remember from the course that I haven't found a chance to use yet - "The death of London". I think I might just have to use it as a song title now instead.
