    Where to expose your RSS/XML to drive more traffic
    I am not a blogger but my sites depend on XML to drive them. So in essence i do have a RSS feed i can offer to users to subscribe to.
    I know feed burner exists and i can ping my feed there, but who or what does it update?
    What other options are there apart from feedburner please?
    And finally is there merit in feed promotion?
    Thanks in anticipation

    I can't help you with your question, but I will add that I used to get a butt load of scrapers using my RSS feed to repost my content. I used to have the entire post in the RSS, now I only have snippets with a visible link.

    Just type this keyword in Google “feedburner alternatives” and you will see the magic.

    I was shocked to see this topic as a featured item on the forum homepage and yet so little response!
    I have since googled and studied and put together my own game plan - which it turns out seems to be rewarding me with visitors and SE's that i have never seen visit my sites before!
    So there is something about RSS - XML that i have yet to click with.
    Any insights?
    Thanks

    I dont know what services they offer as i cannot access it, so i started out with a search for pinging services. I have seen extra activity by submitting my XML file to feedshark, they seem to then further submit to a good number of sites.

    Whilst this will be an ongoing journey for me, i have made some ground and my XML feed is being nicely digested by who knows who...
    So my findings for those who are interested are that feedshark.brainbliss.com/do a nice job of submitting for you, there is also possibly some mileage in the individual ping services.
    Here is a list of ping servers as follows:
