RSS files use the XML language. This is similar to html
except you must be careful to use closing tags and be sure
to validate it before you use it. An XML file contains the
information (Title, Description and Link URL) that your
audience will receive through a RSS reader.

Here is all you need to create an RSS file:


1. Open notepad on your computer, then copy and paste the
information below replacing it with your own title,
description and link information.

The first part contains information about your web site.
The second part contains information for one of your articles.
You can also include optional information in your headlines
such as language, copyright info, contact email addresses,
or an image.

Try to limit the number of articles you wish to include in your
RSS file to 5 or less. Enclose your RSS information with
the xml and rss versions you are using followed by the
channel and item tags. Finish off with the RSS closing tag.

Here's the example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<rss version="0.91">

When visitors arrive at your web site you want them to find
the information quickly otherwise they will lose patience
and move on. A great way achieve this is to add a search
engine or search box to your web site.

You have now created your first RSS file that is almost
ready for syndicating.

2. Save your RSS file - save your RSS file in plain text
format with an XML extension ie
http://www.isitebuild.com/rss/rss-feed.xml. You can also
save it as .rss however when I originally tried this some
RSS readers did not read the file.

3. Check your RSS file - since RSS is an XML file some
characters are illegal in XML so you have to 'escape' them,
that is, insert a text string in their place.

Here are the main ones to watch out for:

-Replace all instances of '&' with: &amp; For example if
you use quotation marks ie "Click Here" change it to
&quot;Click Here&quot;

-Change every apostrophe to &apos; For example: It's a boy.
becomes It&apos;s a boy.

4. Upload your RSS file - upload your RSS file to your root
directory ie the same directory as your homepage. I saved
mine in a special folder called RSS where I keep all my RSS
articles. ie http://www.isitebuild.com/rss/rss-feed.xml

5. Validate your RSS file - don't assume your file is
correctly coded. If not, it won't be read by RSS readers and all
your hard work will be in vain.
