Where has RSS footer been all my life?
Two years ago I had a wildly successful video game system blog that generated great traffic, but most of my content was constantly getting stolen. Black hat sites and the like would take my RSS feed and build thin affiliate sites out of them, with of course no link back to me. Attempting to get my content removed was a waste of time.
Now I’ve been using RSS footer on some of my niche blogs and it works GREAT. RSS Footer is a wordpress plugin that will automatically add a link to your site at the bottom of each post, with the option of adding a link back to the specific post, complete with anchor text. The features are customizable and you can even add bits of html code, to be displayed in your RSS feed only.
No longer will I have to worry about people stealing my content via RSS, as a matter of fact I want people to use it. Generating links has never been easier for my niche content blogs and I’m hoping to really start feeling the SEO love before too long.
